Question about GE Profile Advantium SCB2001KSS Stainless Steel Electric Single Oven
We have a GE Advantium model SCB2001KSS02, have the same F3, chirping problem on a 9 month old Advantium. It started while we were on vacation. We returned home to a chirping Advantium. The poor cats had to listen to chirping for several days until we returned home. Power is off at the breaker box to stop the chirping. I'm waiting to receive the replacement part and service to install it. I love my Advantium when it's working but VERY disappointed that it stopped working so soon. I'll definately be purchasing an extended warranty on my Advantium since I have very little confidence in it's quality and how long before the replacement control panel fails too.

Well right now I'm looking for how to just turn off the beeping. Our GE Profile isn't the same model, but it does the same thing. Found a fix that works, but we have to use it every few months when the keypad locks again. Here's the solution to getting it running again:
unscrew and take off the faceplate exposing the motherboard and chips/wires. unplug/unsnap the wide, flat power cord attached to the digital face. Take a pencil eraser and use it to clean the metal contact points where the power cord meets the display (the ones that are visible once u unplug the cord). Put it back together and tadaa... it works again.
My guess is that it gets some sort of buildup over time that u just have to clean off. Anyway, good luck. Hope this helps

Sorry not to have reported back earlier, after the fix.... Our F-3 error was indicative of a bad display panel. Very easily diagnosed and fixed,. Part had to be ordered but it came in 2 days and then it was a half our job with a cost of $200. Went thru GE service and there's a 5 year warranty on the replacement part (vs. the 1 year on the original unit). Sorry I don't have better news for everyone - once this starts going it's only a matter of time before it goes completely wacky, and shutting off the circuit breaker is the only way to stop it from chirping (muting doesn't work it turns out).
Good luck all!

I know what you mean. I was cooking with this appliance tonight and suddenly it displayed an f-3 code. My advantium oven is less than 8 months old. Not sure how this happened or how to fix the problem. In order to sleep tonight (the constant beeping) I had to shut power off at the breaker pannel. Is this representative of the the type of quality that GE stands for???? I am sooo frustrated. I cook with my advantium oven all the time and love the dual abilities of this appliance. Like I said this is brand new and to have the f-3 code which apparently (from what I read) is a failed key pad. I am very dissapointed and am begining to think about pulling my stock from this company!
