Ge electric broiler inoperative

Merry Christmas!
My JBP26GV3 electric oven broiler and temp sensor went out. Replaced both. Temp is now good but broiler and self-clean won't work. What's the next step?
From what little I could find, it might be a fuse on the mother board.

    Yes, the clock and timer are functioning normally. The door locks and self-clean appears to start but the broiler element, after being replaced, doesn't turn on either in self-clean or in broil mode.

    What's the next thing to check?

    Thanks. I'll do it this weekend and inform you if successful or not. Are there any fuses or fusable links to be aware of, or any particular readings other than opens or shorts?

    I'm a former USAF aircraft radio repairman so I know about different readings as well as the normal precautions... but ovens are not radios!

F2 error code while in self-cleaning mode


F2 Error indicates a loose/broken wire on the oven temp sensor or the oven temp. sensor itself is bad and should be replaced. To solve this issue test the oven temp. sensor, it should read between 1080-1120 ohms, if the rating is more then that and the door appears to be closing fine then it is the control board that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

My GE Profile electric oven keeps shutting off on me, it shows a "F3" code on the screen. What does this mean?

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

your F3 means: Oven temperature sensor open you cannot reset this type of problem.

Check oven temperature sensor, should be ~1100 ohms at room temperature. If too high or low, replace oven temperature sensor

My kenmore oven model 790.9622340C was on 425 bake and started making sparks like is you put foil in the microwave. I turned it off and looked inside and the broiler element had a hole in it so I was told...

yes they are solid wired together you may need to have the bake element but what has happened with your oven has been a massive short in the heating coil causing spark flame this must have caused a short in the temp control unit all the way back to the thermistate the oven really needs to be looked at by a service pro or you could /will end up replacing parts that dont need to be i have been doing this for yrs and in mu opinion you will save money by having a service man check whats shorted just have him/her check the elements and if there good then the control board thermals

best of luck

GE Model JTP15 oven shows F3 error code

I have the same problem. I noticed that the oven gets to the selected temp ok. Then when the pilot attempts to RELIGHT, it gets the error F3. Did you get a solution? After other posts, I will see if the temp sensor is around 1100 ohm as suggested by others. Ken

F2 Oven overheats

jaz3133, it's probably the temp sensor that has gone bad. You should be able to get it from the front. It's the probe that comes out from the back wall of the oven. You can have someone ohm it out. Should read approx 1100 ohms at room temp. Part number for the temp sensor is WB20K5040. Make sure power is off befor removing the sensor. back.
