Overlay Panel bubbles up!

I installed  jkp55wm1ww double oven November 07.  I had the overlay panel replaced in August 08 because the panel bubbled up and cracked. The second panel needs replacing again after 5-6 months.  Is there supposed to be a heat shield or deflector between the top of the top oven and the control panel?  There was none included.

    I have the same problem with my ge oven. I bought it in November 2007, installed it in Feb. 2008 when my custom cabinets were complete, and the over-lay panel bubbled and cracked in multiple places at the end of September, beginning of October 2008. SEARS, where I bought the oven from, will not warranty it, stating we did not buy the extended warranty and the manufactures warranty does not cover it. Model # jtp70w0m1ww. DUE NOT BUY THIS OVEN!!!!!!!!!

    I'm on my third overlay panel. GE fixed the first one under the 12 month warranty but now it's $120 a pop to put a new one on. Otherwise I'm happy with the oven - to bad they failed with this one critical part!

I had the same oven panel overlay bubbling problem on my GE oven purchased in 2008. It started peeling and bubbling within the 1 yr warranty, and GE sent me a replacement panel. This new part began bubbling again within 4 months. Again, I called but now they say it's out of warranty and they will not replace it. Obviously there's a manufacturing defect in this part. The panel looks terrible. It appears that GE no longer cares about the quality of their products.

    I too bought a new GE ,built in over in 2008. JKP30WOMIWW. Within months the control panel's covering started to bubble and lift up. I had not even used the oven, so heat was not a factor. Just before the warranty expired, I called to have it fixed. The service man fixed it in about 10 minutes. The new replacement started to bubble within months. I knew it was out of warranty, so just decided to live with it. Now I need to sell my house, and the panel looks horrible. Again, I have only cooked in the oven twice since I had the new part installed....so heat should not be a factor. I called to get it fixed a second time and learn it will cost me $100 for the service call, and $92 for the "labor" to replace this faulty part. It is a load of **** that the part is warranted for 5 years since it probably cost a couple of dollars for a plastic overlay with printed word... but you have to spend almost $200 to replace it. There is no working parts. But, to get it installed cost $92!!!! I WILL NEVER BUY GE AGAIN.

    dwallis325-

    G.E. has now acknowledged their manufacturing defect with the panel and will replace it free of charge (parts and labor) even if it's out of warranty. Call their 800 number to arrange.

I had the same problem twice. I bought a GE oven from Sears and I got an electronic problem with that GE oven. Sears replaced my oven for a new one and then 6 months later I got this bubbled up and cracked problem. Sears replaced the overlay panel for a different one. After 9 months, I still have the same cracked problem.
I have just called Sears to replace it.
What do you think they will do? Replace the panel.What am I going to do in 6 months. Call Sears again,until my warranty expires.
GE....Hum!

GE Monogram oven ZET1SMSS decals rubbed off. I called GE parts and they said they do not just sell the "overlay." They said I would have to purchase the control panel (~$400) to fix the problem. REALL


I had a very similar problem with my oven so I contacted www.ovenlettering.co.uk who supplied me with excellent quality replacement decals with super fast delivery!
The video on the website made it easy to apply them too

Ariston FB 97 c error 08


hello,

This error code on a Kitchen Aid range (oven) indicates a keypad short on the Electronic Range Control (ERC) board. This is the clock/timer on the operator console. The recommended fix is to replace the ERC. You can generally find replacement parts at these websites:

searspartsdirect.comappliancepartspros.com repairclinic.com

All these sites offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare.

Replacing an ERC is not a difficult repair and can be accomplished by the average do-it-yourself offer. If you decide to order the part and wish to repair this on your own, follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG the range. Dangerous voltage is still present inside even with the range turned off.

2. Pull the range away from the wall and turn the unit around so you can access the rear panel.

3. Remove the screws on the back of the operator console.

4. Carefully disconnect the connector plugs to the ERC. Take note of how they are connected, so that you can reinstall them correctly.

NOTE: The connectors are usually color coded with the colors printed on the circuit board. However, if the colors are not printed on the board, write them down. (A digital camera also comes in real handy for this).

5. With the connectors removed, remove the mounting screws to the ERC and the assembly will come out.

NOTE: Most replacement ERC boards do not come with the overlay. This is the plastic pre-printed number display. The overlay can easily be peeled off and re-used. Just make sure you properly orient the overlay so that you don't inadvertently place it on the new board upside down. If your existing overlay is damaged, you will need to order separately.

6. Install new ERC using the steps provided in reverse order. Minimize handling the new circuit board with your bare hands to avoid damaging the board.

I have a GE JTP70, The Plastic over control panel bubbled up.


Mine did the same thing...and believe me it even looks worse over time....look online it happened to a lot of people....GE won't do anything about it....it is a defect but they won't own up to it......They just want you to keep replacing the part, which cost a fortune. Mine oven cost over $1000 and I am stuck with a nasty looking piece of garbage in my brand new kitchen......can't afford to buy a new one.........I Will NEVER BUY ANOTHER GE PRODUCT AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One of the buttons on my control pad is flat


It depends on if the issue is in the control board itself or just the overlay has become flat.A new control board would be part# WB27T10911 which is about 120.00. The overlay part number is WB27T10968 and retails for approx 85.
To replace either one you would have to remove the control panel and control board. The overlay will be glued to the control board. You could take a heat gun any heat the board up slightly to remove the overlay. Be sure not to let the board get too hot you dont want to damage any of the components on the board. Hope this helps.

Bubbles on control panel overlay


If the overlay isn't a protective foil that easily peals off, the hair dryer would only serve to distort it, I don't believe it will cause it to shrink to fit. If it was applied with a 'self-stick' backing, you may be able to puncture the bubbles and press it back down with a hot rag.

GE is now fixing this problem, no charge. I called about mine, at 866-622-6184 They have the white version already available. A month wait on the black. Then they send out a service tech to install, free to you.
