Default Oven Error Code and Wont Ignite
Model Number: CGR3740BDH   Brand: Magic Chef   Age: 5 - 10 years

Hi, this is my first time so please let me know if Ive forgotten anything.

I have a Magic Chef CGR3740BDH and at first I was just having trouble with the oven occasionally when I turned it on it would start to preheat then would blink an F1 error code and shut off. I use to just be able to turn it on a time or 2 more and all would be fine. Well those days are oven. The oven will not even come on. When i go to start it I dont hear the click of the ignitor, no orange glow no nothing. In the mean time I was still able to use the broiler. Not any longer, now the broiler blinks the F1 code and turns off, although I can hear the ignitor click for the broiler but it doesnt stay on long enough so I can see the flames.

Can someone please help me? With the economy the way it is Id really like to atleast try and fix it myself if I can. Im pretty good with electronics so please give me youre best shot.

Thanks ORR...

Try this from the error codes page on this site....
This simple test will help determine whether the ERC (Electronic Range Control or Clock) or the touch pad is defective when F1 error code is present.

Note: Some models incorporate the touch pad in to the ERC as a single assembly, in which case this test is not necessary. Simply replace the ERC (Clock).

Warning: If you feel in any way uncomfortable performing this test or making this repair, please contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

1. Disconnect power to the range (unplug the range power cord or turn the power off to the range at the circuit breaker). It is very important that the power to the range has been disconnected, so please double check before continuing.
2. Gain access inside the control panel.
3. Disconnect the touch pad (also called keypad or membrane switch) ribbon from the ERC.
4. Make sure there are no lose wires, or anything else that may cause a short when power is turned back on. Assemble the control panel back the way it was.
5. Turn the power back on.
6. Wait for at least one hour to see if the F1 code comes back (usually accompanied by a beeping sound).
7. If F1 comes back, replace the ERC. If it does not, replace the touch pad.

Hope that helps
