Unplug the range and remove the back middle part of the back (should be three screws, I did this yesterday). Remove the rigth side panel by pushing from the back of the range to the front about an inch. It should then be possible to lean the top out and then remove.

Where the probe enters the oven you should see a whole in the side of the oven. If you look carefully you will see the other end of your broken probe sticking out in the open (You may have to move some insulation to see it).

Push the probe back into the oven san you should be back in business.

Replace range side and back (make sure to replace any insulatin which you have moved.

My GE double oven displays a message to set probe. When I press probe it prompts me to input a code (3 dashes)? Can you provide via e-mail what numbers can be used to set probe?


It is asking for the temperature that you want the meat to be. Example if you want your meat to have a medium doneness then usually it is 150F. You would enter 150. The probe will beep when the meat has reached that temperature

Hi,

Here is what Kitchen Aid says about F4:

F4 Meat probe shorted
1. Disconnect meat probe and measure probe resistance (78kω at 60° F [15.6° C],
37kω at 90° F [32.2° C]).
2. If resistance is not valid replace probe.
3. Insert probe and check for a firm connection between probe and jack (in oven cavity).
4. Check connection between jack and harness (in rear of oven).

It sounds like the probe jack may be bad or the wiring between the jack and the control board above.

Kitchenaid single oven, error code is a picture of a push pin


its a "meat probe" not a pushpin. somehow the unit thinkd you hae a meatprobe inserted, soundslike a short in the meat probe jack( usually happens in high moisture areas, the wires swell and make contact with eachother, the replacement jack, has better insulation around the wires, you could also disconnect the wire harness from the main board assy(behind the console, if you never use the function!

I have a Sunbeam digital meat probe thermometer used once. Now the display for thermo/temp comes up H instead of the temperature of the meat. What is wrong?


I have the same problem. The problem is the probe went bad. I had a friend with another sumbeam digital probe (the mavrick) put that probe into mine and the temperature reading was working properly. So, now I am looking for a replacement probe. but looks like I will have to just buy another digital meat probe.
