Question about GE ZSC2001FSS Advantium Electric Single Oven

2 Answers

The GE Profile Advantium SCB2001KSS started beeping and displaying error code F3. I was able to set the time after holding one of the controls in for 3 seconds, but it reverted to the beeping and F3 error message very soon. I now have the power off at the fuse box. Display reads " -F3- " and won't respond to any keys. Hard reset (power cycle) allowed me to set new time, but then -F3- again before I could use the microwave. Two year old unit has worked perfectly with daily usage. If keypad turns out to be the point of failure, I suspect humidity from the cooking area vent below has caused corrosion which lead to subsequent/continued failures. Makes you wonder how GE could release a product with unsealed electronics directly above a steam generator.

Just had this same problem w/ my ZSC2001FSS. F3 code indicates that the keypad is faulty. Luckily, mine was still under warranty, so the GE repairman just ordered a new front control panel. Judging from the number of complaints, this is a common problem with this model. Repairman did suggest I spring for the extended service contract on the oven, because any little problem could be expensive down the road. If it helps, the parts for my repair are listed below.

Parts ordered:
WB07X10680 - Control Assy
WB27X10395 - PCB LED Assy
WB27X10396 - Selector PCB
WB27X10397 - PCB Control Assy

F3 This code usually means that the oven sensor needs to be replaced.

Good luck

Have -F3- on the screen and nothing works


Hi,

**FIRST; shut off the breaker or unplug the unit before going any further please**

"F3" on most GE ovens describes a fault with the oven sensor or sensor circuit. Ohm out the sensor. It should read approx.1100ohms. @ room temperature.

The other possible faults are a bad solder on the control, a pinched or severed wire from control to sensor.

Having said all that, 99% of the time, its' a sensor. most common GE sensor is part # wb21x5301.

hope that helps

good luck

GE Profile Advantium oven (stainless steel)


spray a little oven cleaner on a wet rag and wipe. Rinse really well afterwards. Do not spray directly in oven. It could get in the holes.

F3 code and beeping


F3 - F4 Open oven temperature sensor (circuit) (over 2700 ohms) or, shorted oven temperature sensor. Could be a result of:
· contamination on terminals
· pinched wire in oven temperature sensor circuit
· cold solder joint on control. · Disconnect power to range and remove oven temperature sensor connector from control.
· Measure oven temperature sensor resistance at oven temperature sensor connector (take care not to damage terminals in block) - Should read 1100 ohms at room temperature (approx 72 degrees F).
· Measure each oven temperature sensor lead from connector block to ground. If shorted, look for pinched or cut wire in oven temperature sensor circuit.
· Check connector terminals - Look for deformed or corrosion on terminals. Repair or replace.
If all above is ok replace control.

I know what you mean. I was cooking with this appliance tonight and suddenly it displayed an f-3 code. My advantium oven is less than 8 months old. Not sure how this happened or how to fix the problem. In order to sleep tonight (the constant beeping) I had to shut power off at the breaker pannel. Is this representative of the the type of quality that GE stands for???? I am sooo frustrated. I cook with my advantium oven all the time and love the dual abilities of this appliance. Like I said this is brand new and to have the f-3 code which apparently (from what I read) is a failed key pad. I am very dissapointed and am begining to think about pulling my stock from this company!
