Re: GE JES1290,

Not sure about an F14 error, but an F4 error is a shorted (or even just greasy) temperature sensor (thermistor). That could cause trouble with the convection and fan, etc. like you describe.

It looks like the thermistor on this model comes as part of the heater or one of the covers, etc.

If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa:

Convection oven doesn't heat

Possible that the relay is faulty or there is fault on the control panel. It can also be related to problems on the thermocouple or sensors which can cut off prematurely the element.

It makes noise like it's working but isn't

When the microwave sounds okay, but there's no heat, one of the internal door switches, the high voltage circuitry, or the circuit board may have a problem. To resolve this problem, you need the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.
