    Probe light will not do out so unable to use the oven. Called technical service. They recommended turning off the oven at the circuit breaker so that the oven will reset to manufacture settings. This did not work. Called back again and they recommended turning off the circuit breaker and cleaning the probe with a dry cloth (suspect moisture is setting off the probe light). This again did not work. Now it is day 3 and turning off the circuit breaker did not clear up this problem. Does anyone know how to solve this problem. PS. I don't even have a probe. Model# SEC302

    Same problem with Thermador double oven. Probe light goes on by itself, and I can't turn it off. Then I can't use the upper oven. It usually happens at the worst times like Thanksgiving and Xmas, when there are a lot of dishes being cooked at once. I suspect that it might be moisture getting into the jack inside the oven which the probe plugs into. If there were a way to block off the jack, it might solve the problem.

    Exact same thing is happening with my oven. Probe light came on while I was roasting veggies at 425 degrees. I can't get it to go off.

SOURCE: Temp probe indicator stays on

sounds like your probe connection may be shorted. Can you inspect the probe itself, and perhaps do a test for continuity with an ohm meter? Also, you might be able to disable the probe in the menu settings, and run it on manual, just for a test.

Do you still have the user's manual for this unit?

SOURCE: Temp probe indicator stays on

If you’ve accidentally switched the oven control on your GE oven from Fahrenheit to Celsius (or vice versa), it can seem like an oven control problem; the keypad will accept some temperature selections and not others. Easy enough to switch back to the way you want it– this excerpt from your owner’s manual explains the technique:

Your oven control is set to use the Fahrenheit

temperature selections but you may change this

to use the Celsius selections.

Press the BAKE and BROIL HI/LO

pads (on double oven models use

the upper oven controls) at the same

time for 3 seconds until the display

shows SF.

Press the BROIL HI/LO pad. The

display will show F (Fahrenheit).

Press the BROIL HI/LO pad again. The

display will show C (Celsius).

Press the START pad.

NOTE: On double oven models the new setting

will be displayed for both ovens.

SOURCE: the probe light will not go off, so I cannot broil

I am having the same problem. Except when I turn on my broiler the E 6 number flashes over and over. I have called a zillion repairmen none of them will work on a Thermador

Probe light on convection oven stays on. Clock won't display. Oven still works though.

Sounds like the control board is not communicating correctly with the rest of the unit, consult a professional.

Keep getting a message that says 'remove probe' but we don't have a probe in. Hit 'cancel' and tried reducing the temp on the oven when this message came up ('remove probe'). I hit 'bake' and tried to...

You might want to try and use a q-tip and some rubbing alchohol and try to clean the inside of the probe connector in the oven. Some liquids or something might be in it causing the control board to think the probe is connected. Make sure to do this procedure with the range unplugged. Then wait about 20 minutes before plugging the range back in. Hopefully that will stop the issue. If not could be a control board problem.

My Jenn Air oven is asking me to remove the meat probe. The only thing I did before it asked me to do that was to turn it try to preheat the oven to 350 degrees

you could have a bad probe receptacle. Or a board problem. Kill power to oven, wait 10 min, cross your fingers and restore power.

Superba convection oven probe display problem

I had a similar problem today with my KitchenAid Superba wall convection oven (2002 model). I was roasting tomatoes at 225 degrees F for 3 or 4 hours when the control pad changed and showed that the probe was in use (never have I used it and had to look for it). I, too, tried to plug in the probe and take it out, but nothing changed. My worry was that I could no longer use the timed bake function. After trying to reset by turning off the oven at the breaker, with no change, I turned on the oven to 400 F and left it on for 10 - 15 minutes hoping that the high temperature would dry out whatever moisture that must have gotten in the place where the probe connects. Then I turned it off and just waited. After a half hour or so the control pad cleared and nothing showed (that is what you want when the oven is off!). Everything is back to working now.

F 10 code when I try using oven

The "F10" error code caused by the runaway temperature.

The first thing I would check is the resistance across the oven temperature probe (oven temperature sensor) terminals at the EOC (electronic oven control) plug.

It will be about 1100 Ohms at the room temperature.

If the resistance at the EOC plug is wrong, then measure the oven temperature probe resistance at the probe plug.

If it's wrong - replace the oven temperature probe. It's better to hardwire it, using a high temperature ceramic wire nuts.

If the readings at the EOC and at the oven temperature probe plug are different - check the wire harness between the oven temperature probe and the EOC.

If there is nothing wrong with the oven temperature probe resistance - replace the EOC.

Please rate and have a great day:)
