Question about GE JSP26 Electric Kitchen Range

Intermittent F4 fault code

About 15 years ago, this unit had the same problem. The repair receipt shows the technician "reset sensor plug". The plug wires looks clean. I pulled the temp sensor and I am getting 1077 Ohms at about 68 degrees. I assume this is the correct reading as far as I can determine. Do I need a new sensor or am I overlooking something? Thanks John

Re: intermittent F4 fault code

John , these models use a self-resetting, disc type thermal cut out in the sensor circuit. The normally open disc is wired in parallel with the sensor. When tripped, the thermal cut out shorts the sensor circuit resulting in an F4 failure code. Since you are reading the proper ohms in the sensor I believe you are ok there. They do have a kit WB24K5048 to correct this problem. The kit contains a higher rated thermal cut out, an insulation barrier and instructions. back.

Just installed a new Kenmore range. Glass Top elements don't come on or heat up. Clock works. Haven't tried oven. What do you suggest?

If this is a brand new oven, I would call where you purchased it and have them make it right! You will have a one year warranty that comes with that oven.

Old Jenn air oven. Ran self clean over 30 hours ago. Door wiil not unlock. Have tried opening with knobs on clean. Have resat breakers. Have restarted cleaning cycly. Will not unlock.

It sounds like the temperature sensor has failed in the locked position. I am not familiar with Jenn Air Ovens, but my best guess is you have to remove the back cover to access the sensor and replace it and then reset the oven. This could be a very time consuming and difficult process. If you are not typically a DIYer, I would suggest having someone else look at it and determine if it is repairable and is it worth the expense involved.

Kenmore slide-in electric range model # 79046769908. The oven won't heat after we cleaned it. Is there a reset somewhere?

There is very likely a THERMAL reset but likely its blatently very very unaccessible. If you have lights on on the control panel, I suspect it is the reset switch, especially since you recently performed a self clean.. The panel will light up even if this switch is OPEN (ie not allowing power to the elements) I have a kenmore self clean from 2005 and the attached file shows where it is located. In the attached PDF on the blow appart drawing it shows as ITEM 119. The last page shows the wiring diagram.
Not sure if yours is the same but some things like thermal switches cannot change too much, thank fully. Get an service technician to try to reset it and then have them test for continuity. If it cannot be reset then it is a replacement around $75 -$100.

I have a ZFSB26DND SS GE MONOGRAM side by side refrigerator. Serial number ZF416358. The freezer has thawed. The unit will not cool down. It was working fine Friday. I went out of town and came back to...

Unfortunately there is no one thing that I can give you as the find the problem will take a great deal of detective work or either your part or a service person.s part....
The problem could be a varied as a plugged condenser coil to a failed compressor or mother board..or a refrigeration will take a process of elimination to figure out the eaxact cause of your problem.

Many of these things will need a trained technician to diagnose...

Check out these tips that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Thanksgiving ham still not done cooking

Hello LeeTB. The problem points to the temp sensor. The part# AP2126609. You can check with a local appliance repair or a hardware store for price and stock. Replacing the part is not too difficult. Unplug or throw the 220v breaker first, locate the sensor in the oven, locate the sensors plug by removing the backpanel, (suggestion- check the wiring & plug of the sensor currently in the oven. You may attempt cleaning & reconnecting before replacing IF the wiring /plug are not brital & frail), replace the sensor, route the wire plug, reconnect the plug, remount the back panel, reconnect the 220v or reset the breaker, and test operation.
