The wires going into and coming our of the "plug in" mechanism of the GE Oven probe are exposed. The probe still seems to work but I wonder about it's accuracy and/or repair. Replacement is $100.00

Thank you.

I have a ge profile electric stove,when i try to turn on the oven i get a f4 error.whats wrong

"F4" is a Oven Temperature Sensor error. This indicates that there may be corrosion on the termnal contacts of the oven probe causing poor contact, you may have a pinched or shorted wire on the probe, or the oven temperature sensor is defective and needs replaced. The following link explains how to access and/or replace an oven sensor on most ranges:

UNPLUG the range and trace the wires on the oven probe with the back panel of the range removed. Make sure there are no signs of chaffing or bare wires that could be shorting out the probe. Disconnect the connector plug on the probe and check the contacts for corrosion as well. If you determine the probe to be defective, replace as necessary.

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

Prices vary between these sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also offer helpful exploded view diagrams to help you locate and properly identify the parts you need.

If you have any questions please post back with your complete MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

"set probe temp" flashing and beeping on kitchenaid wall oven

I plugged in the probe and stuck it into a pyrex measuring cup of water, set the probe temp to 165, set the convection (or bake) oven to 500, and turned it on. This allowed it to run for about 20 minutes, and cleaned out the probe jack. Works fine now.

GE Electric Spectra Oven botton element will not heat

If only one element does not work, then test heating element continuity using a multimeter.
If oven does not bake or broil, then test temp probe.
If there is nothing wrong with elements and temp probe , then test wiring harness to control panel and timer control board.

My stove is a Ge Profile from 1998- when I turn on the oven F3 flashes- and shuts off-

Every fault code I have found for GE model ranges says this fault code is an oven sensor error. The oven sensor is a small probe that sticks out from the oven wall (usually along the back or side somewhere). This probe varies in resistance as the oven heats and sends a signal to the control board. If the probe is defective, or if you have a broken wire, you will get this fault code. The following link explains how to troubleshoot and/or replace an oven probe:

I hope this is a simple fix for you. The repair is simple if you follow the instructions. If you require assistance locating any replacement parts, please post back with your complete model number. I hope this helps you.

KitchenAid Gas Range Temperature Probe

We had the same problem, and we tricked it into running it's cycle be doing the following;

1. Wrap a wet paper towel around the probe, plug it in, and close the door. Then follow the temp. probe directions in the manual:
2. Set probe temp. at 130 degrees, then select a bake cycle. We selected convect bake.
3. Set oven temp for 275 degrees, but maybe any temp over the probe temp would work.
4. Then start. The cycle took 12 minutes to complete, and when it was finished, turn the oven off and then open the door and unplug the probe.
5. Now everything works fine.

Range problem

the control bord may be bad or the receptical where the probe connects may be bad and grounding out agenst the body of the oven. I would remove the plug and make sure the wires are good and its not grounding out. If it checks out ok replacement of the control bord should solve the problem
