SOURCE: cleaned oven now won't heat

Probably what happened is during cleaning cycle the oven overheated the tco (thermo cut off). This is a thermo-fuse that is located behind the control board. It will need to be replaced.

SOURCE: Microwave stopped heating

I bought one built in Feb 2005, installed July 2005. Magnetron tube failed Feb 2007 - cost $127 labor to replace. Just failed again Feb 2008 - will cost roughly $135 to replace this time. Not good for such a high end machine!

SOURCE: My Dacor ECD230 stopped heating???

The high limit switch has tripped on this unit. Remove the vent panel behind the door and there will be a button in there behind the wires. Press this button with the circuit breaker turned off and that will rectify the problem. You still might need a servicer out to take a look at the unit though

SOURCE: oven won't heat

Unplug the power cord for thirty minutes, this should reset the oven.
If this still does not work do the following:
Press clean and then cancel. This will reset the appliance.

If the error does not clear , then during the self cleaning cycle, the high temperature has probably damaged the temperature sensor probe, and it must be replaced.

SOURCE: oven won't heat

There is a design problem with certain model Whirlpool ranges where the thermal fuse blows during self-cleaning (auto-clean). This may be because of inadequate insulation, causing the outer panel to overheat. When the thermal fuse is replaced, the range will work, but it will blow the next time auto-clean is done. To safely work around the problem, the thermal fuse may be replaced with a thermostat, which will reset itself once the oven has partially cooled off. If the part number of the thermal fuse is 9759243, it will blow at 120 deg C (248 deg F). This can be replaced to a Selco Part# SES-L250 thermostat. The terminals are perpendicular (90 degress), so they have to be bent to 30 degrees for the wires to fit behind the back panel. 

Selco part# SES-L250 specs:

Surface Mount
3/4 in. disc
120/240 VAC
25 A
SPDT
open on-rise (normally closed)
open (cut-out): 250 deg F
close (cut-in): 220 deg F
temperature differential: 40 deg F

Available: Selco distributors: http://www.selcoproducts.com/distributors.php

and online at

Allied Electronics http://www.alliedelec.com


If the Selco SES-L250 'surface mount' thermostat is not available, an 'airstream type' thermostat can be used with a few differences:

1) I recommend to replace it to a 240 or 230 deg F thermostat. The reason for the lower cut-out temperature is that an 'airstream mount' thermostat will not be flush with the back panel, as is the original 250 deg F 'surface mount' one, so it may cut-out at a higher (unsafe) temperature.

2) I recommend to add Heat-sink compound between the thermostat and the sheet metal. This is used for computer processors and is available at computer and electronic component stores.

3) An 'airstream type' thermostat is thicker than the original 'surface mount' one, so longer screws will have to be obtained. The sheet metal tabs on the thermostat will bend slightly when installing.

4) The terminals are perpendicular (90 degress), so they have to be bent to 30 degrees for the wires to fit behind the back panel.

Oven heat varies


When you say it goes up and down by itself, what is the neon doing on the front panel. Is this switching off and on in relation to the oven heating and cooling? If it is, then it could be the thermostat sensor is dirty/covered in grease etc and giving false readings and will need a carful clean. With a fan oven, the fan should keep running, it is the element that the thermostat controls. If the neon stays on but the temperature varies, it could be a fault with the wiring. Does the fan keep running?

Oven will not stay heated. F1 light on.


Hello there:
on most ge models this code it can be either a (f 0) or the (f 1 ) is telling you that the the thermistor controle circuit is going bad or has failed all together. or there is a short in the erc circuit meaning the electronic controle board. ok
So i would recommend have a repairman check out the thermistor first since this is the most common thing to fail then if this passes have them test the controle board or the ecr circuit
and if the oven is still under warranty you might be able to use the warranty to get it fixed ok
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards MIchael

Oven stopped heating - F34 displayed.


Hi,
You get F34 error because there is excess heat within the oven.
You need to clean the cooling fan for any debris or dust, if this does not solve the problem replace the cooling fan.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for using Fixya.

My oven turns off on me after only a minute never heating up fully


Could be caused by either of following;

1. Faulty thermostat.
2. Faulty thermal cut out switch. (controls power to cooling fan).
3. Faulty cooling fan (not fan inside oven).

Test thermostat by setting thermostat to low temperature like 60 oC. If oven gets much hotter then its a faulty thermostat.
To test cooling fan and thermal switch take oven out and remove top or rear panels to expose components.
When oven gets hot the cooling fan should turn on. If it doesn't then check to see if there is a mains voltage present.
If mains current exist but fan is not turning then replace fan. If mains voltage is not present then its the thermal switch.

GE: JTP56 F2 Door Locked displayed


I have the the same problem as discribed above. Does you oven fan go on for a long time after you use your oven during regular baking. Mine seems to stay on for 45 minutes after I bake anything. Can this be all tied together with the f2 problem? I am wondering if it is not just a fan circulation problem?

Thermador Oven won't heat after running self-cleaning cycle


SOunds like you need to reset the oven high limit switch. It should be located behind the grille obave the oven opening and below the control panel. There should be about 4-6 screws you need to take out to remove the grille to gain access. Turn the power of to the oven at the circuit breaker, then rech in with a screwdriver and push down on the little red button in the center of the hig limit until it clicks. the high limit should be about as big around as a quarter and have a wire going into one side and out the other. If this keeps tripping, you may have a bad cooling fan. When you run a self clean it should also run a fan to cool the components. You should be able to feel a breeze coming out of the bottom of the oven when the cooling fan (not the convection fan ) is running. If this fan doesnt run, it will trip that switch. Hope this helps!
