Question about GE Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

Display goes blank, no heat, no oven

GE JCSP42SKSS range just stopped working. No error code or anything not even a clock. All buttons are dead.
When I turn one of the knobs to start one of the surfaces, clock appears, and I can use buttons on a control panel but the surface still cold and oven doesn't work either. As soon as I turn knob off, display goes blank as well.
This happened once last week, but after turn off/on stove was working. Not this time though.

    I have breaker. Reset it several times - to no avail. Besides, I think if I would have 120 working, the clock would be working all time. But it is not. Clock appears only when I turn surface on. Very strange...

    I see what you are saying... I'll try to check a voltage on a range - my voltmeter needles are too short to check in the outlet.
    BTW, can breaker itself become damaged somehow? I mean, fuse you just replace. But breaker - can it become damaged during normal use?

    It was exactly what you suggested - only one line was working. The problem was not in the breaker, but a loose contact in the outlet. Thanks a lot!

This I hope will be an easy solution for you. I think you have a circuit breaker tripped or a fuse if you have a fuse panel.. I am guessing you have an old fuse panel. When you have a fuse blown on a 230 volt appliance and you turn a swith on (like your knob) it feeds back to other circuits on the 120 circuits and will make it do crazzzy things, like making lights and clocks work..Regardless if you have fuse or breaker you dont have the 240 volt to run the range..You only have one120 volt leg powering your stove.

    Depending on the type circuit breaker you have, When you reset it, push hard off, then turn it back on.

  • butch welch Nov 03, 2008

    You have 2 lines going to your stove, each 120 volts. the burners use both of them to heat. the clock and display uses only one of them to lite up. If the one going to the clock is not there of course it will not work and the burners will not work, but when you turn your knob on that 120 volt circuit that is there will feed thru the burner and provide voltage to the clock circuit and thus the displays will lite. I can tell you as a license electrician, you dont have 240 volts going to that stove. Did you try turning off your breaker. push it hard off. Sometime breakers are hard to reset. Do you have a volt meter.

    Sure breakers can look good but be bad.. I dont think you are turning it off like I am telling you to do. Turn it off with some force, with your thumb and push it hard off. then turn it on..

GE spacemaker range model number jmp28g0r1wh display goes blank and oven turns off


the model number isn't correct.check and send the model number again.if you changed the sensor this should take care of the f3 error code but the clock shouldn't go blank and oven stops.like i say your model number doesn't show up as a good number,if this machine has a fan in it you could have a bad fan motor,the fan cools off the electronics and if it isn't working the clock assy. can get hot,damage it and it will do this,also i've seen on some models there's a screen where the fan is and dust gets stuck on the screen and the fan can't blow any air,i'm just telling you what i've found before but it sounds like the clock assy. is heating up and shutting down,if there isn't a fan in your model it sounds like you have a bad clock assy.if you send the model number i can look it up for you.

Kenmore Electric Range Model # 790.95664100 All display lights are off until you turn on a heating element control knob. Then the time display starts flashing "12:00" along with a short buzzing sound...


Sounds to me from the information you provided that the auto timer is set...when the auto timer gets set you are generally unable to use the oven. If the auto timer is not set then you are looking at a problem with the Electronic oven control..do any error codes show up f1 - f2 - f3 and so on?

Jenn-Air JES9860 burners and oven stopped working problem with display


sounds like you lost power to your stove. if you can't reset the clock, it needs to be replaced. in otherwords, the power outtage shorted out the clock.

have a technician replace it.
