GE built-in 27" convention oven (JKP18)

This thing is totally busted. The control panel went blank and we can't use the oven at all. We know for sure there's electricity coming through 'coz the light turns on when we open the door. The new replacement unit is quite expensive (> $1000). We have the cooktop sit on the top of the oven. We have spilt something once and the water might somehow flow down and get the oven wet. It's probably that have caused the short circuit or something that causes the failure. What could be wrong with the oven? Is it the control panel busted? Any idea if we can order the parts and fix it ourselves? Where can we order the parts (we live in Northern California) and find a technician to fix it?

Re: GE built-in 27" convention oven (JKP18)

I have the same oven and the problem is probably the control panel not the circuit breaker. I'm having the panel replaced next week for the 3rd time in 8 years but, you can find it on the web at for about $140. they also provide troubleshooting help and installation help. I've spoken with GE many times trying to convince them that my oven may have an assembly related problem but they don't want to hear about it. Just replace the part and avoid all the aggravation I've endured trying to get GE to take care of it.
Good luck

We are having the same problem but there is electric coming into the oven all the way to the panel but the panel will not work. Blank as above. So it seems it is the panel. 3/15/07

Re: GE built-in 27" convention oven (JKP18)

Chanski, Most likely the problem is with the circuit breaker, not with the oven. Your oven needs 240V (two legs, 120V each) to work. If one of the legs is missing you will have the oven light but nothing else. The first thing you have to do is to check the power from the circuit breaker. It must to be a double breaker for the oven and it suppose to be about 120V between ground and each leg and about 240V between legs themselves. It is better to call a professional to do it for you due to very high risk. back

Hello Diana,
Their are a few things that should be checked. I know its going to be tough to check on a built in double wall oven but one thing that needs to be checked is if their is 240 volts ac entering the oven(i know the breaker is ok) but the connection at the back of the oven can burn,then the proper voltage wont enter the oven.
Another thing is a high limit thermostat thats inside of the control panel,need to checkif it has blown.
Last thing i can think to check is if 120 volts is at the clock, if not 120vac that explains the blank display

What is an F3 message on a GE Profile JKP18 oven ?

Hi jmjburns,

The F3 fault code description is an open or shorted oven temperature sensor. Please check the sensor harness and harness connection between oven sensor and oven control. If the wiring is ok and still encountering the same error, please replace the temperature sensor.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I'm afraid I don't know how to help you get a new control panel (part #WB36K5065 is no longer available). But we have the same oven and a similar problem. Our control panel works just fine, but the face is melted from a recent mishap (small fire in the upper oven while broiling), so the plastic face of the control panel looks awful and needs replacing. If you decide to replace your oven and would like to sell the front face to your control panel we'd love to purchase from you.

My start button on my kenmore built-in oven w/microwave won't wor

my kenmore model number 911-47699100 oven doesn't work. Everything except the oven and broil works--cleaning, all timers, start button, etc. All that happens when you push start is about every 30 seconds, two relays can be heard making and breaking kind of like a click then immediately a clack. No error codes appear. Replaced sensor but that didn't work. Any help would be appreciated.
