Cannot calibrate pan sensors after changing right front element

My pan sensors do not work. I get a fault code of f160. The sensors were working fine before I changed my right front burner. The right front burner kept shutting off with a code f153. I am trying to calibrate thr sensors but I must be doing something wrong.

Light "Burner On" stays on all the time on my electric stove GE model JBS27WH2WW


I have a GE Range Model JBS27W H2WW and the serial# XXXXX that I was cooking on and the back burner starting throwing out sparks and blew a hole in the coil and the drip pan. Now the light Burner on is staying on and I switched the 8 inch burner in the front with this 8 inch burner and still cannot get it to work.

Fault Codes


This code is shorted temp sensor, element 2, which is the left rear.

Action:
1) Check all heater, sensor and wire harness connectors. Make sure they are tight and secure. Check heater ribbon for possible damage.
2) Remove sensor connector (for left rear in this case) from logic board and measure RTD resistance. Should be 1030-1150ohms. If not, replace heater element assembly (~$130 for part)
3) if fault persists, replace logic board.

See my other entry as how to open the unit and do the replacement of the heater element.

Note: this error code 1X4 (where X in the number of the burner) is similar to 1X3 which is "open temp sensor"; they are dealt with in the same way. Both can be due to damage but I would suspect that, unlike 1X3 codes, 1X4 codes are less likely to be due to simple wear.

GE profile JP969 fault code F113


I took the cooktop apart I removed the terminal from the main electronic board . The left front burner has 2 white wires and 2 yellow (my case). The 2 white wires lead to the RTD sensor.With an electric meter set on OHMS check continuity between the two wires leading to the RTD sensor .If the reading is more than 1030 ohms is good if not than you need to replace the whole burner that comes as a complete unit with sensor and ribbon heating element.I found it on line for $114.00 +shipping.I wish they sold only the sensor but it would've been too cheap and not worth it for the makers . All connections to that burner are very easy put back together . Some suppliers may ask for as much as $175-$195 for the complete unit .

The front right burner isnt working


Most common fault is the hotplate element is faulty and requires replacement followed by a burnt off terminal at the hotplate terminal followed by a faulty control switch.

I have a Wolf gourmet 30" stove. it's about 10


Interesting, I'm looking for a solution to a similar issue. Our new (7 month old) 30'' Wolf Range has this issue. When both front burners are light, the back burner's electronic starter begins to click, but only when you put a pan on the front left burner. I believe the iron/steel in the pan is causing a magnetic field thats starting the rear burner to go off.. just don't know.. will report back after the repair person comes.

Jenn Air Gas cooktop burner ignition


Hi JHMcdona

Most likely the electrode for the right burner is defective. As well as the switch may also be defective (is shorted because of pressing hard on it trying to make it work!!). Change the electrode and igniter switch of the right front burner.
