Re: burners fine but keypad says loc on

The person who gave gthe solution to press "9" and "0"for 3 seconds deserves a commendation. My wife experienced the same problem and got so upset I almost called 911.

Many thanks.

Ge gas stove display reads loc ref and no buttons work just replaced controll board

The keypad is "locked", hold down the button to remove this (usually "clear") for 5 seconds. Look closely at the buttons, one of them will have a picture of a padlock near it. That's the button that clears the "lock" condition. It's a safety feature to keep the kids from turning on the oven.

GE JBP90 Electric Range - keypad not working

Hi-  If everything worked when stored, problem could be simple. The keypad is linked to the computer with a ribbon connector. The plug may have gotten corroded a bit in storage. Try this first: Unplug power. Remove back panel to access control. Remove four screws holding control. Unplug and inspect connector. Clean with a toothbrush and compressed air if you have it. Plug connector back in, re-assemble, and see if touchpad works.  Let me know if this info helps.  Have more if needed. - Ed

Oven controller not functioning

9. The time of day does not display on my electronic oven control. If I push the CLOCK pad on the control panel the time will display for a few seconds and then it goes blank again.
  • On many ranges with electronic controls the time of day display can by turned off or on by holding the CLOCK keypad down for 15 seconds.
    Push and hold the CLOCK keypad. The time will appear for a few seconds, and then disappear and finally it will reappear and beep. Release the keypad and the time should continue to display. Follow this same procedure to turn the time display off.

Control Panel Display Reading

mommaT, the code has to do with the keypad, key held down too long or stuck or shorted keypad. Have someone remove the key pad ribbon cable from the control board and clean the ends with an eraser. If that doesn't do it, you may need a new keypad. back

Burners don't receive gas though oven/broiler does

tommi, this model has a cooktop lock-out solenoid feature. Try pressing and holding the top light keypad for 5 seconds and see if the top comes back to life. If not, check your owners manual, it may be a different key. The lock-out solenoid is in the back behind the outer panel. The cooktop lockout valve has been redesigned from a AC to DC voltage because of complaints of chattering. The new part number is 8184768. Lets hope you don't need it and just have the top locked out.

F1 and constant beeping

Tul2pi, there are several things that could cause this. 1. shorted keypad. If you unplug the keypad ribbon from the board and the beeping stops it's more than likley your problem. 2. Temperature probe in the oven may have gone bad. You would have to ohm this out. At 75 degrees it should read approx. 1091 ohms. 3. Worst of all it would be a control problem itself where as you would have to replace the control board. Since you are so close to the warranty period, I would call Frigidaire at 1800-944-9044 and see if they would cover back.
