    Thanks for the solution, but......

    I did it twice... and still have that error code.

    The range itself is approximatly 15 or 16 years old. I also changed the electronic controtl module 2 times and the upper heating element once (5 years ago).

    Model number is GE J35CMW-1

  • Ker0Z3n Oct 17, 2008

    Model number is right! The label is on the front lower right side of the range frame, just behind the drawer.

    Maybe it's a canadian model? (I live in Canada).

    Anyway, I was told that it would cost around 50$ to get a new sensor. Maybe I'll try that first.

    Thanks again!

    OK thanks anyway...

    I'll go shopping for a new one this weekend! BTW your answer made my wife very happy ;-)

    I found out that the problem was the temperature sensor. I tested it with an electrical tester (Ohm) and I got a null reading.

    So I went on to buy a new sensor. Found one at 50$cnd. Took me about 10 minutes to change it....

    OK I know, I should have tought about buying a new one.... but I still hope that it could work for another one to two years.....

    I did replace the sensor and know it's working. Took me about 10 minutes to complete the repair!

Welcome to Fixya,

You said, you have an error message on my display : SE:-0! I've read somewhere that it could be a faulty sensor. Is that right? If so, how can I repair it? Thanks!

How old is the range?
And the model number?

Usually this will cure and an error code.
This can reset the system.
Turn the breaker off to cut the power for 5 minutes.
Then restart the breaker and try the range.
It's like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
Usually it corrects some error problems if they are not serious.
Or they are sometimes just a glitch.
Let me know how it works out.

    Here is an interesting report I just read!

    Repair or replace?

    When to pull the plug on your old range

    Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems

    in the owner's manual.

    Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?

    The answer depends mostly on the age of your range,

    how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

    Follow these guidelines:

    When a repair makes sense.

    If your range is under warranty or less than four years old ,

    paying for a repair makes sense.

    Note that ranges under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;

    readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

    When a repair might be a wise choice.

    If your ranger is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,

    it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.

    But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,

    given that today's models have added features.

    Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,

    are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent

    more efficient than those built before 1993.

    When it pays to replace.

    The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new range.

    Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive range

    eight or more years old.

    Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent

    of ranges you replace are likely to end up in a landfill.

    Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!

    Thank You, HUUUM

    This model number is not listed!
    Did you get it off the label in the range it self?
    There is a label sometimes metal label if it's real old in the door jam of the range.
    Or when you pull out the storage drawer in the free standing ranges!
    Or in a slide in range you need to remove the bottom panel if in=t is removable like mine!
    Ask me advice if you can not find it!
    On the cover of the user guide is not the model number but the series #.
    In the user guides they tell you where to find your model number!
    Waiting your answer.

    The range itself is approximately 15 or 16 years old.

    You also changed the
    electronic control module 2 times

    and the upper heating element once
    (5 years ago).

    I'm sorry to tell you that it's time to save your money!
    You are putting good money into bad!
    Get a new range and lower your utility bills!
    The new one will pay for itself in a few years and you can do what you enjoy rather than spending
    endless money on your appliances.
    I under stand you!
    I keep cars for 10 to 18 years!
    but this is a waste of your good hard earned money.
    Now that you told me what you have, my advice to you is step back a moment
    and think what you are doing???????
    This is not good or good for you to dwell on!
    Sincerely, Huuum
    This range is not listed in any repair manuals or parts houses that I searched for you!

    Hello, Ker0Z3n

    I have been looking high and low for your model in all the Canadian repair manuals sites and us too!

    Unfortunately I can not find the model J35CMW-1.

    I do recognize that the code SE, is sensor. The SE:0 is ancient in the appliance error codes and I did not find it. I really tried hard to find a copy of your manual online. But not one reference available. Unless the number is read wrong by one digit??

    You need to remember that most people will not spend any more than
    $200-$250 MAX . in the life time of their range and that's new or old!

    So this means there is no market for parts that old, unless they are similar to, or can be used for other models too!

    This makes it very hard for people like you and I to keep fixing our home appliances.

    In cars I have found almost any parts for my more than 20 year old cars!

    But in appliances it's sometimes better to replace.

    And save on utility bills.

    Most new appliances will pay for them selves in only a few years.

    I'll keep looking till it exhausts me, cause I do not like being beaten by any Adamant object.

    Only flesh and blood can beat me!


    I'll let you know if I come up with anything

F7 error code on GE gas oven model # JGBP90MEA2BC

On this model, code F7 means there is a keypad malfunction, and therefore the range's "computer" isn't getting a valid signal from the keypad. It may be a stuck "touch-key", a bad connection between keypad membrane and the range/computer connector, or more probably a faulty keypad membrane.

In some cases it can be a defective computer module. You can test whether the problem is the keypad or computer unit by disconnecting the keypad entirely. If an error code F7 still shows, then the computer is faulty.

I have a GE Spectra range/oven the oven will no come on and gives me a F4 error message, can you help?


F4 Error indicates a loose/broken wire on the oven temp sensor or the oven temp. sensor itself is bad and should be replaced. To solve this issue test the oven temp. sensor, it should read between 1080-1120 ohms, if the rating is more then that and the door appears to be closing fine then it is the control board that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

GE model JKP13GOP2BG control panel faulty ( F1 code)

Often times when someone makes an attempt to "repair" a control, it does not hold up. Replace the entire control. Don't waste your time. You will also get a year warranty on a replacement control.
