Question about GE Profile PT956 Electric Double 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 PartStore.com, 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.
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.
