We had a power surge that killed the circuit board and we replaced it now the oven turns on then off so I replaced the temp probe and at does the same thing. When the oven is first pluged in after working on it it gives an error code of f-4

How to repair an oven: resetting the power might be the only thing you have to do....can you imagine? "You mean it ... My ovendoesn't work: what do I do now? ...

Usually, power for the turntable motor and the magnetron tube (the microwave source) are controlled by a couple of things. One is a relay on the control circuit board, and the other is a switch that's operated by one of the door latches. It's possible the control board has gone bad or bad connections have developed. It's also possible the door switch has failed or is out of adjustment and the oven thinks the door isn't closed.
Diagnosing this kind of trouble may require working on the oven while it's operating. MICROWAVE OVENS USE HAZARDOUS VOLTAGES WHICH CAN KILL YOU. You might want to leave the repair to a professional because of safety concerns. Unless the circuit board requires replacement, it's probably worth having this repaired. Unlike some repairs, this one won't cost as much as a new oven.
If the oven won't turn off the oven thermostat is often the cause of the problem. The electrical contacts inside the oven thermostat can weld themselves together and then the oven won't turn off. If this happens, turn off power to the entire appliance at the household circuit breaker or fuse. The oven thermostat usually cannot be tested and must be replaced if defective.
Oven Control Board
The oven control board has a set of relays that turn on and off power to the bake and broil circuits according to the customer settings and sensor input. If the oven won't turn off it could be that one of the relays on the oven control board is shorted closed, providing voltage to the heating circuit. It can be dangerous if the oven won't turn off. Don't leave the oven unattended without turning off power to the oven.
Some ovens are equipped with a relay board. This circuit board has several relays which control the switching of electrical current to the oven heat source. If the oven won't turn off it may be that one or more of the relays on the relay board have failed. If this happens replace the relay board. The relays on the board are not sold separately. ALSO CHECK THE BAKE AND BROIL ELEMENT.
Forgive me for saying this, turn the unit off wait 30seconds, then turn on again (this sometimes works)
There is a very good possibility you have suffered a power surge which has damaged your electronics unit. Please check your manual to see if there is a reset button on the display (this sometimes reolves it).
If there is no way to reset, then you will need to replace the displat/circuit board, this is quite fiddly and i would recommend you call in an appliance expert.
Its 220 volts and ge only turns of one leg of the 220 vols so you always have a hot side NEVER work on any thing thats still pluged in.
You could have killed yourself if you touched graond while you pushe the hot conecter on to the burner. Try reseting your house bracker If that don't work Look a the relays and wiring in the stove.
This model has issues with the power input controller board, usually caused by surge following a power failure... board is $285 from GE plus $90 or so to install after paying a $100 service call. Replacment part is special ordered and generally takes a week or so.... have 2 of these ovens... ask me how I know.... LOL
Normally when a power surge lands a direct hit on a non protected circuit board, it will usually fry it completely. you can confirm this by shutting down the power for 5 minutes. if the control doesn't respond after the 5 minutes of no power, this will confirm circuitfailure due to the surge and, you will need to replace the board in this case.
