Question about GE Profile JTP56 Electric Double Oven
Our double oven has been problematic for about a year. We solved the dreaded F7 error with a suggestion to insulate the ribbon with slips of paper. Now we have a different problem. The top convection oven doesn't go above the 100 degree mark. I can hear the convection fan working properly. The bottom oven worked for awhile but now the bottom oven is doing the same. I disconnected the power and restarted. The panel for the time display 12:0 when turned on. After resetting the time, it looks normal. Ignoring that, the panel appears to work fine. So both ovens will not heat.same problem as other person. I have replaced control unit to no avail.
cound it be the limit switch on the outside back of the oven or do you think it is the key pad?? has had f0 and f7 error codes in the past.
The most likely is that the faulty part is the thermostat or sensor probe, in this case the oven will have 200 on display, for example, and wont heat more than 100.
The limit switch must also be tested.
If it is none of the above then the problem is the control board.

How much is many degrees different? Some ovens can be off by as much as 50 degrees. Sometimes you can pull the temp. knob off & adjust the temp. on the knob to the temp. on your oven thermometer. Sounds like the ovens thermostat is going bad. Can be pretty expensive to replace. You might be better off to turn the temp. knob up to a higher temp. setting to reach the oven temp. you want & go by your oven thermometer..
If there is a difference in temp.....
only thing to do is replace the thermostat then. Get the model # off the plate on the oven & go to your local appliance store & get a price on a replacement.
If your not getting any heat from the bake or broil elements, its a good chance the control board has gone out.
Its a pretty costly board, and on some models the wiring will have to be changed quite abit, which is very difficult. A appliance repair tech. is recommended on this part...
