Question about GE Profile JTP56 Electric Double Oven

3 Answers

F7 Alarm I have a GE Profile JTP56 and got the dreaded F7 alarm. After some internet research, and I found the schematic in the oven (can't afford a tech to come out right now), I came to the conclusion that with that alarm, I had to replace the oven control. So after realizing the part was approx 300.00, I grabbed one on Ebay, reputable seller, guaranteed to work. The part was new in the box and part # is WB27K5272, exactly what I needed. Well, I was able to install it myself and was thrilled to see that it worked! Up until this point, I have been grilling for 2 months. So, when I used it the first time all was well until about an hour into it and the lower oven control timer kept appearing like it wanted me to set a time for something. I messed with it and it disappeared, however the old part started failing this way as well before I got the F7 alarm. I have been able to make a roast beef and 1 batch of cookies, and awoke at 4:00 this AM to the dreaded F7 alarm again. I don't know if you can help, but it's Christmas, I need an oven, and can't afford to have someone come out. They want 75.00 to just come out and I have 2 kids I have to buy Christmas presents for. Any help is appreciated. I sure do hope to hear from you soon. Thanks so much, Holly Please email me if you have a moment and if not...Happy Holidays

    I bought a new house in 2002. Along with my house, several of the new houses in my neighborhood also came with a GE Profile JTP56 oven. Some off us have the same F-7 problem mentioned. I have been turning off the ovens power source, waiting 30 minutes, then turning it on. Its a pain, but has worked until now. The control board locked up and nothing is happening. Some of my neighbors gave up and bought new ovens.

    The extended warranty guy comes tomorrow so I will see what he recommends.

    Same problem.  We didn't know if it had to do with power surges in the neighborhood, or just a bad batch of control boards.  We'll try the eraser thing and get back with you.

I've had the same problem over and over again. I have had some results with turning the circuit off for a short while and then turning it back on but unfortunately this doesn't correct the entire problem because it comes back. I am going on my 3rd control panel.

Holly, the info I have on the F7 states that it might be a problem with the touch panel, shorted matrix or start key. Try unplugging the touch pad ribbon from the main board and cleaning the end with an eraser. See if the error returns after that. back.

F7 Alarm

i thought f7 meant to replace the keypad that you had a stuck keypad. See if you can find your tech sheet in the control panel if it is a built in oven if it is a freestanding oven pull out the bottom drawer and look down there or on the back for the tech sheet . It will tell you for sure what the f7 means if you need a keypad call 877-262-1479 for parts and have model number.

Top oven doesn't heat.

We had this same problem in our lower oven and found the solution the night before Thanksgiving. With 26 people coming for dinner, I desperately need both ovens. (Turn off the breaker for the oven before you do this.)

My husband took the control panel off of the upper oven and found a wiring diagram. In the text, it said there was a manual reset for each oven in the access panel for each one. He opened the access panel for the lower oven and found the reset button in the middle of that area. He said it was a black circle with a red button in the middle. After reseting, we turned the breaker back on and everything works great!!
