... oh great and learned masters...

Many thanks be unto fixitnow.com for help in the past with my washer and dryer problems. I've saved heap wampum in service calls thanks to the advice I have found here.

This will be my first attempt at something kitchen related.

Basically, the oven died. The range still works fine and for awhile now the wife and I have just resigned ourselves to this oven-free existence.

I have stabbed and flailed around the internet long enough to think I might need to Replace the Electric Oven Control. But I am a total appliance repair noob, and thought I should consult the wisdom of my elders.

Is it the electric oven control? Is that hard to replace? Is it an expensive part? How many beers might I consume in the course of this repair?

Thanks again for your help.

The clock on my STOVE started flashing F1
  • You have either a bad ERC (clock) or a bad touch pad.
    1. Disconnect power to stove
    2. Gain access to the back of the clock (electronic range control or ERC).
    3. Unplug the touch pad ribbon connector from the ERC. This will be a flat wire apx. 1 1/2" to 2" wide.
    4. Make sure everything is clear and will not short out when power is turned back on.
    5. Turn power back on to stove.
    6. Watch for the F1 and listen for the beep.
    7. If you get the F1 and beep, replace the ERC.
    8. If after apx. 30 minutes you do NOT get the F1 and hear the beep, replace the touch pad.
      NOTE: Some models incorporate the touch pad and the clock as one part.
If you can't find a new ERC you can send yours to stove clock repair and get it repaired!

Followed the instructions above and burned my house down.

Just kidding.

I got the F1 and the beep... So it is the ERC... But when I took the part out it looks to me like the ERC and the touchpad are all one part. There is the touchpad part and that is connected by soldered wires to what I am assuming is the ERC.

Anyway, my nieghbor suggested I take the part to Sears to see if they might service or replace it. But he also suggested we might just want to replace the whole oven.

I want to order it here online, and probably will if I see a picture of the part that looks like what I'm dealing with here... But I'm scared.

Any suggestions?

That link was incorrect... anyway by pasting the part number 496226 onto a workable link, I got a picture of an ERC very similar to 496225 which is probably almost the same but designed for a gas range (involved in a problem I've been trying to tackle here).
