Question about GE Profile 30" Free-Standing 5 Burner Self Clean Gas Range with Warming Drawer, JGB908 Kitchen Range
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.
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.
If this fixes your oven please post back!

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.
