Tip & How-To about Kitchen Ranges

GE Range flashing locked after boil over

GE Electric range with front controls. I had a pot boil over and spill over the front of the range, some water got on the membrane key panel. But I’m assuming some went behind the panel on to the control board. The LOCKED button started to flash randomly and the electric door latch was engaging and disengaging also randomly. Unplugging the unit and looking for any type of reset button did not help. The control board which is mounted behind the membrane panel got wet and was causing a short. Luckily it survived. I fixed it by removing the four stove knobs, four retaining plastic nuts that are mounted behind the knobs, and then the four (2 and 2 outer most) 1/4” bolts that hold the main panel on. I dried out the electric front door switch and the electric panel with hairdryer for 10 minutes. Plugged it back in and its all fixed. . No so good design to allow this to happen so easily so as I assembled it back together I put silicone around the membrane panel in hopes of preventing this from reoccurring.

Ge range model #JSP42BK4BB


F0 - F1 - F7 Stuck keypad may mean relay is turned on. Determine if problem is with the Key Panel or Control by:
1. Pushing CLEAR/OFF pad.
2. Disconnecting Ribbon Cable from control and waiting at least 32 seconds to see if Code recurs

If code recurs, problem is in the control. Replace control.

If code does not recur, problem is with the Key Panel.
F0 or F7 Shorted Clear/Off Key due to membrane switch, control or connector Shorted key panel membrane switch; Check Electronic Range Control (ERC)

F7 A = Function pad button stuck or
B = Bad clock Unstick button or
Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC)

These are the codes for ge depending on the model.

Water on cooktop leaked into control panel


Sounds like you got water into the touchpad. If so there is no easy way to dry it out. It might dry itself out but you might up having to buy a new one.

Spill into oven vents


The best way to clean the inner glass is to remove the door from the oven. With the door in the broil open position (first stop) pull up for about 2 inches until the hinge brackets are released from their stops. Close the door all you can and lift the door off the hinges. Lay the door on a padded surface and remove the 4 screws on the bottom. The outside glass will now slide out of its rail and you can clean the inside. To install just reverse the process. If you take your time and observe, it's not that bad of a job...Catriver..post back.
