Question about GE Profile 30" Free-Standing 5 Burner Self Clean Gas Range with Warming Drawer, JGB908 Kitchen Range

Error codes F2 and F3

My problem is not with a gas range, it is a GE free standing electric range with ERC. The oven will reach the desired temperature and operate properly for varying amounts of time then kick out with either code F2 or F3. The fault codes suggested a faulty sensor so I ordered one in and replaced it. But the codes returned during the test run. When I checked the fault codes on another web site they suggested that F2 could be high resistance somewhere in the temperature sensor circuit not just the sensor. They listed F3 as an open or shorted oven temperature sensor. Next I continuity tested the sensor that I had removed to see if it had been faulty at all. I found a low ohm reading of only 750 at room temperature, suggesting that the sensor was faulty. Next I plan to test the wiring from the sensor to the oven control ERC, but can not seem to find a replacement wire harness listed at any of the parts supplier if I find that the wiring or the connectors are bad. The ERC (0ven control) seems to be working as it should. Is it possible that it could be at fault and can the ERC clock be tested as well? There is also a capillary tube inside the oven compartment and I have read that it is a high-limit thermostat. How does the high-limit thermostat tie in with the sensor, or does it? Please suggest any thing that I maybe over looking. I thank you in advance. Fix-it Fergie.

    GE electric range model jdp36gp shuts off after the oven reaches desired temperature and displays F3 code on pad.

  • Anonymous May 11, 2008

    i have the same problem with my oven. i have a GE spacesaver 27 inch built in oven model number JMP28G0V1AD four burner stove top. I go to turn the oven on and it heats up to the temperature and when i go to put my item to be baked it shuts off during baking and displays the F-2 code and the F-3 codes. What do i need to do to fix it.

IF THE ABOVE SOLUTION DOES NOT WORK TRY THIS!

Do Not try to perform the below if: Oven is under warranty,You are not handy with a soldering gun, or Are afraid to do this.

The below solution applies only to my in-wall oven with F2 and F3 codes randomly, but presumably will work with other GE models.

I had the same trouble with a GE in-wall oven. The problem was on the electrical board behind the keypad. A pin that was soldered to the board, that was the input for the oven temp sensor, had cracked solder. So I re-soldered the pin and hopefully it will continue working.

Two months ago I asked fixya about a g.e. oven with a f3 code. that evening a reply suggested I replace the oven sensor. I took the old one to the parts place, told the repairman about the code,and he told me the sensor WAS the problem. I replaced it, and WOW it fixed it! Today it faulted out again. I will pull it again and check it. It was installed correctly.The problem for a f3 fault IS the sensor.

    I had the F3 code, replaced the sensor, no luck.
    Replaced ERC put old sensor back in and WaLa!
    Like new again.
    It may have been bad solder as noted below.
    Wish I hadn't trashed the old one.
    But the wife is happy so all is ok.

You have a faulty keypad. You could probably special order this part from a local appliance parts supply store for 50-60$ or purchase a new microwave.

F2e0 error on stove


Turn off the breaker and wait for 5 minutes. the follow this 3 steps:
--> After turn the breaker back on, go to the range and press "OFF", "OFF", "START", then click on the "clock set", there is a message on the display saying that do you want to delete the error, at this time press on the "START" again. And wait for a while until the everything on the screen disappear except the clock time. Hope this will fix yours. It fixed mine.

GE Oven displaying both F2 and F3 error codes; bad ERC or temp sensor?


F3 is Open oven temperature sensor circuit.
F4 Shorted oven temperature sensor circuit .
F7 Component failure.

To fix this you need to read oven temperature sensor circuit at oven temperature sensor ( approx 1000 ohms at room temp); check for cut or pinched wire or loss of contact, if wirings are ok, then replace the probe.

F3 and F2 Error Codes


If hitting clear/cancel won't clear it try unplugging and then plug it back in. My guess is the oven control is bad. Here are the fault codes for this model.

Failure
Code
Condition Check/Repair F0 or F1 Failed transistor in control If code cannot be cancelled, replace the Electronic Range Control (ERC) or touch pad F2 Oven over temp - exceeded 590F with door in unlocked position or 990F with door locked If actual temp condition occurred, look for welded relay contacts or high resistance connection or any cause in the oven temperature sensor circuit F3 Open oven temperature sensor circuit Measure oven temperature sensor circuit at oven temperature sensor (should be approx 1100 ohms at room temp); check for cut or pinched wire or loss of contact F4 Shorted oven temperature sensor circuit Same as above; check for melted connector or both leads shorted to ground F8 Component failure within Electronic Range Control (ERC) effecting temp processing circuits Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC) F9 Problem with door lock circuit such as pinched wire between Electronic Range Control (ERC) and door lock switch Check wiring and test operation of switch
