F0 error code on GE wall oven

We used the powerman fix for the "dreaded F7 error". That problem was about 5 months ago. Now we keep getting an F0 error. In your F7 fix you stated that F0 is usually a shorted off key. What does this mean and what part has to be replaced?

    I too am having an F0 error code. I called the appliance store and he said it was either an E.C.R. (electronic range control) or that it was the keypad and he also stated that it would probly be about 300 buuucks to fix.

    Our oven is displaying the same code, among a few more but the FO code is more often. We did the same thing; called the parts department, and they suggested replacing the control, but also explained that it could be the digital display and that it would cost an additional $200.00 (+) to replace it ourselves. My husband replaced the control and we immediately tried cleaning the top oven. It cleaned for about 2 hours, then started beeping the code and shut itself down. We had to shut the oven off at the breaker because it keeps beeping the code every 10 to 15 minutes. We don't know what to do.

    F0 code and oven does not work.   What a piece of ****.  Last "plain" oven worked for 25 years.  This one is 2 years old and has a problem that costs as much as a "plain" oven costs, just to fix.

I had the same FO error. It turned out that the ribbon cable from the front panel was not making good contact where it mated with the circuit board. Remove ribbon cable and clean contacts on ribbon cable. Replace cable and problem should resolve.

    THANK YOU! This worked and saved us hundreds right before the holidays when we use our oven most and have to stretch our dollars the furthest! We're so grateful to you for this tip!

I had a F0 showing up on my GE oven's display (model number - JTP15WA5WW). Reading postings on different forums, I opened up the display and disconnected the plastic strip cable and inserted it back in after a few minutes. That did not help so I thought the display (which costs about $220 in geappliances.com) was faulty. You cannot believe what I did to fix it!! I opened up the cable again and with my nails I kinda scratched the bare contacts that connect with the electric socket and that fixed it. There was some kind of debris coating the bare end of the terminals. My wife loves me more than ever before!!!!

It Worked! Thanks. I took a very fine piece of sandpaper and roughed up the end and put a piece of paper between the ribbon and metal where the ribbon enters the metal. Every thing is back to normal. Thanks to the post I saved 163.69 from Appliancepartspros.com
I hope my update helps someone else. My wife loves me even more now!
We are thankful!

An F0 lights and beeps on the pannel for the bottom oven


F0 typically means a shorted OFF key. You can trouble shoot this with an ohmmeter. Turn off the power. Disconnect the ribbon cable. Check flat cable pins 13-14. Normally the ohmmeter should show an open circuit. Press the OFF key. The resistance should be 100 to150 ohms. If all this turns out to be normal, there is probably an intermittent short circuit.

Error message...


The F7 is intended to indicate a stuck START key. However, a design defect may cause a false indication. This can be corrected by adding insulation to the ribbon cable. You can find detailed instructions at my web site. Follow this link:

All of the above must be entered as the address on the same line.
