Question about GE Profile JT965 Electric Double Oven

Open Question

What would be wrong with a GE JTP86 microwave/oven which the microwave side does not heat up?

The tray used to rotate on its own when the door was opened, and would stop after the door closed. No the tray does not turn at all, either.

I believe this is because it takes a while for your oven to cool down (the cleaning cycle uses a very high temperature to burn up the grease and food). The timer is how long it takes before it will be cool, at which time the oven will unlock.

The F2 Error code means the oven has detected an excess temperature condition. Most often this is due to a bad temperature sensor - the sensor costs about $75 from an online repair site. 
How to remove and replace the temperature sensor. In most GE ovens, when you open the door, you'll see the rod-shaped temperature sensor sticking out of the back wall at the upper left. It's about six inches long and a bit more than 1/8" in diameter, held in place with two screws. 

Turn off the circuit breaker (built-in ovens) or unplug the range before attempting the replacement. 

The replacement sensor will come with instructions, but basically it's a matter of removing the sensor, pulling out the wires to where they are connected and disconnecting them. You may have to snip. The replacement sensor will come with high-temp wire nuts to hold the new connection. Polarity doesn't matter; it's a straight resistance thermocouple. Hook it up, be sure you poke the connections back far enough so that they're on the other side of the thermal insulation and not resting against the back of the oven. 

If you continue getting the F2 error after replacing the sensor, then the problem is likely in the control module - this is the circuit board behind the keypad and clock. 

You'll need to remove the decorative bezel to get behind the control panel. Remove screws and set off parts in order - it's not complicated. Once the bezel is off there are two more screws that hold the panel in place. Then you can lift the panel up about a half inch and pivot it forward toward you. You'll see a bunch of wires going to a circuit board. 

On the panel you will notice some black plastic boxes that say "Potter & Brumfield" on them. These are relays. Check the relays - slide the black plastic cover straight up to expose the coil and the contacts. The coil, when energized, closes the contacts - look at all the relays. You can manually close the contacts with your finger (be gentle). If the contacts of one of them are stuck, they might be welded together. You can fix the problem by prying apart the welded contacts gently with a knife blade. Take some time to gently polish the relay contacts with a folded bit of fine grain sandpaper - this will get some more life out of them. Be gentle and careful - the relays aren't complicated but if you bend the contact or rip it out, you'll have to replace the controller, which will set you back a couple hundred dollars. If you unstick and burnish the relays, they will probably eventually weld together again as the rough spot will spark, but when you burnish them with sandpaper they should be good for some more life before they need to be replaced. 

If the problem isn't the temp sensor or welded relay contacts then the problem is obviously somewhere else, but temp sensor and relay contacts will account for the lion's share of F2 errors. 

Once again, be safe, be careful, be gentle. Ovens are not very complicated and they're tough, but always exercise care. Always disconnect electricity before messing with them.
good luck..,,
thanks

Hi,

This confirms that either the thermostat or magnetron tube is shot.The tube could be more than an old microwave is worth.

The cost of the magnetron would be around $125 and the thermostat is around $25.

Here is a good repair service if you choose that route!
To schedule service or for customer service issues please call 1-800-905-9505.

HI.If your timer button is a rotary. Timer switch button and if you gonna set and it runs however it does not stop.The timer switch button do mechanical control to stop the oven from working.So I suggests to check the timer inside the oven.The only way to stop is opening the door because the door will trigger the power source/button.So meaning the door connects to the power button.So check the timer inside it because it actually didn't work.Thank you for choosing FIXYA.

Many GE oven control boards have a relay for the common of the broil and bake elements. This relay is notorious for being the culprit. the electronic control board will need to be replaced. You could check with corecentricsolutions.com to see if the control can be rebuilt. It is much cheaper but you will have to send the board to them for repair.
