F0 error code on GE Profile PT956 double electric oven

I have a GE Profile PT956 double electric oven that turned itself off while cooking our Thanksgiving Day turkey (2008). After turning the breaker off and on it started displaying an F0 error code. On occasion there is beeping to accompany the F0 code. I've turned the breaker off several times, somethimes a half day to a full day. After tuning the breaker back on after an extended off period sometimes the control panel is dead and a half hour or so later it will start flashing the F0 code, sometime it beeps too. Other times the control panel works and I can turn on one or both of the two ovens. but within an hour the oven turns off on its own accord and a while later an F0 code will appear. Then other times the oven will have a mind of its own although the control panel is dead (with the breaker on), it will start cycling through different displays on the panel, sometime it looks like it is trying to put itself in the automatic clean cycle (but it doesn't intitiate), sometimes it will turn on the light in the upper oven...

The range was purchased new in Nov. of 2007 and after 12 months and 3 weeks it decided it had fullfilled it's service life (thanks to GE for the 12 mo. warrenty that I can make no use of). It was only in service 10 months since it was purchased before the house was complete.

The automatic clean cycle was used only one time ever and only on the upper oven about a week before the F0 error coded and other assorted problems occures. Note that the F7 error code has yet to appear (since that seems to be a popular one for GE ovens). The magic "paper on the ribbon connector" dosen't appear aplicable on this model since the ribbon cord never passes through any sort of opening, there is direct and unobstructed access for the ribbon cord from the back of the glass control touch panel circut board to the erc panel circut board.

I did find the following part number on, GE part no. WB27T10905 "CONTROL ERC DDHE 30 PROF" for about $226. If indeed what I need is a new electroninc range control (ERC), is this the part I need?

Thanks for any help that may be offered.

    I have same problem slightly different model (2004). Have been searching for answer on ERC vs glass keypad vs ribbon cable. Found first two at around 200 each, ribbon cable less than 100. Have cleaned ribbon connection with computer dust cleaner and trying a reheat. What I read from other sites is that if you turn off breaker and let sit for several hours, then turn back on and get the error code then it is the keypad. If you get error code back it is ERC. I tried this yesterday before cleaning cable and it stayed on for 2 hours. Seems to be an issue with this model and I agree GE warranty no help on a 1800 dollar oven. Also, I contacted GE via their site, no response yet.

You can also put a piece of paper between the ribbon cable where it joins up before the connector. It has been reported that the cable will short in this area. Try that before spending more money since most of the F-codes appear to be cable related.

I keep getting FO code and beeping won't clear

Hello George,

The F0 error code means that the computer thinks a button on the touchpad is stuck. Sometimes this can be resolved by making sure the touchpad connector fits tight into the control board. The F0 code can be cleared by pushing CANCEL/OFF. If it returns the touchpad needs to be replaced .

Double wall oven F0 error code


The F0 error code means that the control board has detected a defect within the control board itself, the F0 code can be cleared by pushing the CANCEL/OFF button and if it goes away and returns all is well,however if a short time later the F0 returns the control board would need to be replaced.

Error code - F0

F0 Stuck touch pad Usually means that either the touch pad or the oven control (also called clock or ERC) is defective and needs to be replaced. If this fault code cannot be cancelled, replace the oven control (also called clock or ERC), touch pad, or both.

Error code f0


Thanks for using FixYa. Error F0 means a stuck/faulty touch pad. You’ll need to check the touch pad and if faulty replace it. However, usually the Electronic Range Control (ERC) is also replaced if this error cannot be cancelled. You’ll need to check and replace the oven control (also called clock or ERC), touch pad, or both. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

F0 error code on ge profile oven

Could be a stuck keypad. Try pressing all pads at random several times each to clear it.
If that does not work the ERC(clock) must be replaced.

GE Profile double Built-In Oven error Code

According to the GE User manual... any F# error code means you have a function error and they suggest you press the CLEAR/OFF pad and allow the oven to cool for one hour. Then put the oven back into operation. If the function code repeats, disconnect all power from th eoven for at least 30 seconds and then reconnect it.. If it still comes back.. call for service.. however it has been my observation that F0 is usually a shorted off key on the keypad. Hope this helps..

GE Profile Performance Double Oven

I was getting only the F0 error code. The wiring diagram inside the stove said F0 indicated a bad off button on the keypanel. There were instructions to check the ribbon cable on certain lines, with values for the resistance. It seemed to check out, so I ordered a replacement and voila, it worked.
