Question about GE Ovens

2 Answers

My 16 yr old GE JKP44GP double wall oven has an F1 error code. GE repair man said that we need a new sensor panel ($550?) but the part is no longer available. There is a replacement part (which they can't guarantee will fix the problem) but it is also not available. My lower oven works if I turn the power to the oven back on but my upper oven does not work. Is my only choice to buy a new oven?

    I have a GE double wall oven JKP44GOP3GP - 16 yrs old. We got a F1 function error code. GE repairman said that we need part WB27K5120 which is not available anywhere. Some websites say that WB27K5210 can be used as a replacement but GE won't guarantee that it will work & this part is also not available. We were going to try one of the sites that offers to refurbish your part by my husband can't get the part out - one of the screws is stripped. Should I just bite the bullet & get a new oven?

Dear Lindanoll,
From security point of view, You must buy the new oven. By some how you may able to get it in working condition, but who will take guarantee, if something goes wrong after that....... I think oven is not a toy, so you can play with that or make some discoveries.....
So I personally advised you to get new oven, especially from your safety point of view....

Our monogram double wall oven has a f7 code on the control panel. None of the buttons appear to be working, except clear, which clears the code. Then still no buttons work, and the f7 code comes back. What...


It's most likely that the error code you are seeing is F1, not F7. F1 is a code for 'stuck touch pad'. You will need to replace the clock/ERC or the touch pad (or both).

Ge double wall oven, model number jkp26gotibb has an f1 error code. Part is no longer available. Is there any other way to fix this problem with out replacing the whole oven.


F1 touch pad / ERC test This simple test will help determine
whether the ERC (Electronic Range Control or Clock) or the touch pad is
defective when F1 error code is present.



Note: Some models incorporate the touch pad in to the ERC as a single
assembly, in which case this test is not necessary. Simply replace the ERC
(Clock).



Warning: If you feel in any way uncomfortable performing this test or
making this repair, please contact a qualified appliance repair technician.


1. Disconnect power to the range (unplug the range power cord or turn the power off to the range at the circuit breaker). It is very important that the power to the range has been disconnected, so please double check before continuing


2. Gain access inside the control panel.

3. Disconnect the touch pad (also called keypad or membrane switch) ribbon from the ERC


4. Make sure there are no lose wires, or anything else that may cause a short when power is turned back on. Assemble the control panel back the way it was


5. Turn the power back on.

6. Wait for at least one hour to see if the F1 code comes back (usually accompanied by a beeping sound)


7. If F1 comes back, replace the ERC. If it does not, replace the touch pad.

Error code -F1- and broken glass door in lower oven


Here is some wisdom for understanding F1 fault codes.

In some models, there are subcodes that make diagnosis even easier.

Here's a simple explanation of what's going on and how to troubleshoot:

The F1 code indicates that:


a. The electronic range control (ERC) is sensing heat in the oven when in a time-of-day (i.e., not cooking) mode.

b. The ERC is receiving information to run multiple heat functions simultaneously.


Although different components (depending upon the model) could generate the code, simple and straightforward testing using your ohm meter is all you gotta do to test for it.

1. Check the oven temperature sensor. The oven sensor has to be within spec or it will cause the F1 code.
As an example of being out-of-spec, the ERC will generate an F1 fault code when the sensor shows 1650 ohms during a time-of-day mode.
This is equivalent to 350°F in the oven.
The resistance isn't high enough to generate an F2 code (runaway temp) or an F3 or F4 code (shorted/open sensor circuit).
The ERC monitors the sensor circuit after a heat cycle and expects the resistance to drop back to 1050-1100 ohms.
The fault code is generated when this doesn't happen. Checking the sensor circuit means also checking the harness,
harness connections and the sensor itself.

2. If the oven sensor circuit checks okay, then turn your inquisitive eyeballs to the touchpad.
If the range has a separate touchpad/keyboard, the keypad may have moisture that is shorting several circuits simultaneously.
If the F1 code is given immediately (instead of during or after a heat cycle),
remove the ribbon connector from the touchpad to the ERC after clearing the F1 code. If the F1 code does not return in five minutes,
then cast a suspicious gaze upon the touchpad/keyboard. Shorts may be caused by using an ammonia-based glass cleaner.
The touchpad surface will absorb ammonia-based cleaners that are sprayed directly on the glass surface. When heat is applied,
the surface material can break down causing shorts.
If you're gonna use ammonia-based cleaners on your control panel, then you should spray it on the rag and then wipe the touchpanel
-don't spray directly onto the surface of the touchpad.

3. On Amana ranges with a rotary temperature dial, be sure that the knob is in the OFF position when performing tests.

4. If these tests all check good, then replace the ERC.

F1 error/touch panel not working on GE Monogram Dual Oven


Usually, the F1 means that either the touch pad or the oven control (also called clock or ERC) is defective and needs to be replaced. If this fault code cannot be canceled, replace the oven control (also called clock or ERC), touch pad, or both.

I recommend a service call for this repair.

GE Electric Range Model #JBP95A F1 and F7 Error Code


F1 is a common error code indicating a failure of the oven control board (aka ERC or EOC). Often these control boards have been discontinued, "no longer available" or are very expensive. We may be able to help and save you money.

We refurbish oven control boards at www.fixyourboard.com.

F1 code on display pad


That error means the main control board has a internal failure. The board will have to replaced to fix that issue. If you need detailed repair help with that visit the link below:

My GE double oven is flashing F1 and beeping


The F1 error is similar to the F7 error and the fix may be similar. It indicates that the touchpanel needs to be replaced. The problem is really one where the insulation is breaking down between two sections of the ribbon cable which connects the touchpanel to the electronic control. I have solved the problem by placing slip of paper between the two secions of the ribbon cable. The slip of paper should be worked down into the slot. It will only go about 1/8". A piece of file card material works well. See attachec photo. If you have a metal touchpanel, you will also have to add slips of paper at the edges of the metal slot. __Be sure and turn off the power to the oven at your circuit breaker!____There are usually three small screws at the bottom of the touchpanel. The panel may need to be pushed upward to release it. Have a friend available to hold the panel while you work on it. Do not allow the panel to dangle by the wires.____Please let me know if this works for you or if you have any questions. You can reach me at hutchipop@yahoo.com. I have shared this solution with over 830 folks. Most report success.
