    This problem had been checked out by a "local yokel" which charged a expensive service fee. He said this was in our circuit board which was not available anymore. Fixya contact POWERMAN saved the day. Our church can now fix biscuits on both the bottom AND top ovens!
    Thanks Powerman!!

    I think someone messed with the self cleaning button on my 15 year old oven. [I had never used self-cleaning.] The bell started ringing and wouldn't stop. We had to shut down the oven at the panel. We did get a "F1" failure code = Failed Transistor in Control. The correction: If code cannot be cancelled, replace the ERC [Electronic Control (ERC-II).

    GE no longer makes the ERC replacement part #WB27K5040 - the electronic control - but it is available on internet.

    Question: Can just the timing bell be disconnected, or do I need to order the complete control panel and have a service tech install it?

    Have the same 1992 GE double Wall Oven model #JKP27WCF1WG with electronic sensor control issue. Top oven does not work. Called Sear Repair, paid $65 for service call to learn that part was not available. Sears would take $65 off in combination with any in store sale. We tried Sears today. They blew us off. Store manager went home early. In frustration tried national Sears cutomer service, same result. Shall purchase tools for business from someone else. In my opinion, shopping at Sears is a stupid decision. What suggestions do you have for repair on our 24" double wall unit?

    During oven operation the display will indicate a F3 error and will beep until it is cleared. This may take 20 minutes to occur. Is the oven sensor bad?

F3 usually means an open oven sensor. Turn off the power. Disconnect the sensor harness from the control. Measure the resistance with an ohmmeter. The resistance should be approximately 1080 ohms at room temperature. If it is greater than 2900 ohms it needs to be replaced. Make certain you disconnect the power before messing with the controls. Look for damaged harness terminals if the sensor checks out to be OK. There should be a set of service instructions in the top of the oven that will help you identify the specific connections for the sensor.

I get a F11 code with beeping noise and the oven controls won't work? what can i do?

Hi Ken Kazemi - Typically error code F11 indicates a shorted keypad. Try resetting the range by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. This usually will clear most false error codes. Wait approximately ten minutes and if it proves to be ineffective contact a professional to move forward accurately. Most likely the EOC on the range will need replacing.

My frigidaire oven wont stop beeping and it has a f9 code


F9 is a door lock error and to solve this issue you can hold the light switch for 15 seconds, this will reset the control. If it won't work then hold the light switch in and set the unit to clean and after a minute press cancel to cancel the clean cycle. If still it won't work then the door lock assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

F24 Error code and incessant beeping

Being a software developer I guessed that the keyboard (the touch pad) was bad, because in my case one of the keys (the Top Oven OFF key) did not beep or work. So I went on the Thermador website and found the touchpad on the schematic. I ordered one yesterday from a firm called Mar-Cone in St. Louis, and it arrived today. It is a very easy replacement, and takes about 10 minutes. Happily it was a good guess, and it works fine. For the 27" SEC272BS/01 (stainless) the part # is 474083, and cost $189.20. They will express ship for $25.

Phew, we have 20 people coming for dinner on Thursday.

I'll be happy to let anyone know how to change the panel.

Whirlpool GBD307PDS Double oven stopped working.

The beeping sound is a fault code. Problem is it isn't listed. In either the top or bottom oven panel there should be a service sheet. The codes are located on this service sheet.
