Electronic Control Panel Problem

Over the years, our oven controls (rubber push buttons activating an electronic control panel behind a glass front) have become more difficult to use. Initially, this happened only during the winter when a bit of cold air came down the exhaust duct. Now, it's a daily problem. Most recently, I've had some success removing the rubber buttons and touching the surface of the control panel with a finger. Now,even that's not working. I almost abandoned my plans to use the oven today until repeated prodding of the control panel with an eraser at the end of a pencil finally worked. What options do we have? Although almost 12 years old, the appliance is otherwise in excellent shape and we'd prefer not to replace it.

Anyone else experiencing this problem might want to try the following. We removed all affected rubber push buttons, exposing the electronic printed circuit panel behind the protective glass. We sprayed a soft rag with "M.G. Chemicals Heavy Duty Flux Remover" and pushed it in each opening in the glass panel, twisting it to clean the circuit panel behind each push button. We then cleaned the back side of each rubber push button with the same flux remover chemical. Since then, the push buttons require the slightest touch to activate. Surprisingly, when pressed firmly they don't work as consistently. We're hoping this is a lasting solution.

Wall electric oven gets hotter than the tempature reading on the control dial

If this has a manual turn oven control (not electronic) you will have to replace the oven control thermostat.
First shut the power off to the oven at the main breaker. Remove the screws holding the front control panel in place. Some of the screws are located inside the oven and some are on top of the control panel. Tilt the control panel forward to access the oven thermostat. While holding the new thermostat in your hand transfer each wire the the corresponding numbers on the new thermostat. Unclip the oven sensor from inside the oven and feed it into the control panel area.Remove the screws holding the old thermostat to the control panel and discard old thermostat.
Insert new thermostat into the control panel and screw to panel.
Reinsert the thermostat sensor into the oven cavity and fasten to clips.
Re assemble control panel.
WARNING: make sure that no wires are touching when reassembling.
When everything is back together, turn power back on and test temperature.

I need Please a solution to F1 Error Code on GE/Kenmore electric ovens Model # 911.4658815 Thanks E-mail: I have the same model number. 9114658811 and plugged in the stove for the...


To my understanding error code F1 would indicate a faulty control board, possibly thermistor control. The only recourse is to have this replaced.

This of course would require a fair familiarity of electrical/electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and possibly a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Panel is showing f7 and flashing e6 57 56 58 5a

F7 is a stuck key. Usually you can't get a key unstuck. Best thing to do is replace the keypad / user interface. Here are some of GE's error codes:

Range/Stove/Oven Fault Codes Failure
Condition Check/Repair F0 and F1 Failed Thermistor Control Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC) F2 Oven temp exceeds 590 w/ unlocked door High resistance or interference in oven temperature sensor. Replace oven temperature sensor F3 Open oven temperature sensor circuit Replace oven temperature sensor F4 Shorted wire (Oven temperature sensor) Locate and correct F7 A = Function pad button stuck or
B = Bad clock Unstick button or

Clear code

This is a frequently reported problem on some model ranges and wall ovens equipped with an Electronic Range Control (ERC) or Electronic Oven Control (EOC). An “error” code display of “Sabb" or “Sab” will be displayed and the range or oven will not function. This is called “Sabbath Mode" and it may be costing you unnecessary charges in service call fees. This is NOT a problem, but actually a feature provided by some manufacturers to enable customers of certain religious faiths to honor the Sabbath. The range will not function at all during this period and cannot be reset by unplugging the unit or turning it off. In your owner/operator's manual there should be a section that refers to "Sabbath Mode" under the control panel features and operation. This "problem" is a minor operator issue and is not a malfunction of the appliance. This is commonly reported by customers to service companies to have corrected, but the repair is unnecessary, and usually NOT covered under the manufacturer’s warranty. The reason: It is a designed feature of the appliance and considered “operator error” in most cases. What this means is you may be paying someone big money to push a couple of buttons and “fix” something that could have taken you minutes to correct yourself. Sabbath Mode can inadvertently be activated by pressing the wrong sequence of control panel buttons, kids playing with the control panel and also after a power outage. The “problem” can be cleared, but you will have to find the proper reference in your owner operator manual. Manufacturers provide different procedures for activating and deactivating the mode, so instructions may differ. I hope this helps you.

Ge range model #JSP42BK4BB

F0 - F1 - F7 Stuck keypad may mean relay is turned on. Determine if problem is with the Key Panel or Control by:
1. Pushing CLEAR/OFF pad.
2. Disconnecting Ribbon Cable from control and waiting at least 32 seconds to see if Code recurs

If code recurs, problem is in the control. Replace control.

If code does not recur, problem is with the Key Panel.
F0 or F7 Shorted Clear/Off Key due to membrane switch, control or connector Shorted key panel membrane switch; Check Electronic Range Control (ERC)

F7 A = Function pad button stuck or
B = Bad clock Unstick button or
Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC)

These are the codes for ge depending on the model.
