After cleaning f1 appears on display

This means the oven lock is activated. The cook top touch panel is likely causing some problem.
Try to press the child lock button and see if F1 goes off. Otherwise the control panel will need to be replaced.

How do you unlock a kenmore elite cooktop?

You can do this by:
Check the oven display to see whether the screen says "LOC." When "LOC" is displayed, the oven lock is activated and the door cannot be opened. You need to make sure it is locked so you do not mistakenly lock the door.

  • 2 Press and hold the "Stop" button on the oven control panel until "LOC" disappears from the display. Some oven models have a button marked "Oven Lock," which should be used instead of the "Stop" button.
  • Lock the oven again by pressing and holding the "Stop" or "Oven Lock" button until "LOC" appears in the display

    Display on clock fade out but if i cover it for a few min it come back up mod. jenair cook top sve87600b


    I've often seen the display on these units go dim due to a failure in the control board. It may well start out as an intermittent failure. Your comment about covering it reminds me that some ovens have an ambient light sensor to automatically dim the display but I don't recall seeing that on your model.

    In either case, it sounds like the classic failure mode we often see.

    If you can have the control removed, we may be able to help you, we repair oven controllers at

    Great.. finally. i manage find from solution from user guide.. L is Locked. below is the instruction. will check out tonight. 
    The locking function holds the current settings, or prevents anyone from starting the hob. It is also used for cleaning the control strip as the controls can be locked without the hob being on. To lock the hob : -Press the on/off button     . -Press simultaneously " - " button and " + " button of the front right zone (PVD 633 front left zone), and then press again on the " + " button of this zone. The hob is locked, the locking indicator " L " is displayed on all zones for 20 seconds. To unlock the hob : -Press the on/off button      . The locking indicator " L " is displayed on all zones. -Press simultaneously the " - " button and the " + " button of the front right zone (PVD 633 front left zone), and then press again on the " - " button of this zone. The hob is unlocked.

    Have a baumatic ceramic hob displayin letter 'L'

    Got the same problem, and remembered I've kept the manual book
    L means locked. I dont know how Ive managed to do this as well

    Anyway it says:

    Cancelling the key lock
    After switching ON the control the child safety feature can be deactivated. Here it is necessary to simultaneously operate the front right cooking-zone-select-key and the MINUS-key and then operate the MINUS-key alone. If all steps hae been carried out in the right order within 10seconds the key lock gets cancelled and the control is OFF. Otherwise the input will be considered incomplete, the control remains locked and switches-OFF after 20 seconds.

    After a renewed switching-ON/OFF key all displays show 0", the display dots are blinking and the control is ready for ooking. If a cooking zone is "hot", "H" will be displayed instead of the static 0".

    Followed their instructions & still not worked. ,I am still confused and baffled after these instructions........................
