THE PROBE ON MY GE OVEN ( J2S968 )NO LONGER WORKES PROPERLY. IT IS 2 1/2 YEARS OLD. THE PROBE WORKED PERFECTLY THE FIRST 2 YRS. NOW IF WE WENT BY THE PROBE READING THE MEAT WOULD BE WAY OVERCOOKED. WHAT ARE THE CHANCES THAT IT JUST A PROBLEM WITH THE PROBE WIRE ITSELF ? SHOULD I GET A NEW PROBE WIRE TO SEE IF THAT FIXES THE PROBLEM ?

    SImilar problem...sometimes the probe works and sometimes not...meaning you insert the probe into the jack and the oven doesn't seem to sense that it's there...I think the problem is the probe itself...the probe cable is too short and often the cable is pulled sharply against the jack (like when you try to slide the rack forward when the probe's still attached), probably the wires inside have become frayed.

M y dual fuel GE oven has no display showing it just went blank, but when you open the oven door the light goes on


I had the same problem as devlin50 with my GE duel fuel 918 model.
If you trip the circuit breaker off and leave for one minute before switching the power back on then hopefully the panel will be flashing, worked for me. Worth trying as replacement panel is not cheap, about $220 here in Canada.

Hi

The issue can either be a bad electronic control/clock assembly or the oven temperature sensor (probe) has gone bad. To solve this issue start by checking the oven temp. sensor for 1100 ohms, if the rating is more then 1120 ohms then it should be replaced however, if it reads between 1080-1120 ohm then check the control and door switch and replace the part that is bad. You can also check the wire harness from the control to the electronic board. Hope this helps...

Oven will not ignite, it is approx. 8 yrs old. 2 years ago the ignitor was changed for a similar problem. Everything works on stove even the broiler. Very dissapointed in the GE profile since I have had...


Jim your ignitor has gone bad once again.
You can turn off the gas supply,remove the oven racks,remove the oven base pan,remove the flame spreader to access the ignitor.
Place a clamp on amp meter over one wire of the ignitor and turn the control on for bake. If the ignitor does not glow at all. It is bad. If it glows and reads 3 amps or less on the amp meter it is still bad.
A proper functioning ignitor will light and re-light the burner in 45 seconds or less.

It could be a micro switch in the latch mechanism not communicating properly with the display circuit board, or it could be the circuit board itself. The switch might cost 20 or 30 dollars, but the board could be hundreds. Kinda costly if you ask me...

Takes much longer now to heat things


I think you have two separate problems.

Taking a long time to heat is almost always a failing magnetron.

The cover on the side is the waveguide cover. If your waveguide cover is burned or broken, it will need to be replaced.

It protects the waveguide and magnetron from grewase and food particles, which can cause arcing and damage.

Hopefully your oven is just under the one-year mark and GE will fix it free under warranty.

Otherwise, they will replace the magnetron at no part cost, but labor will be your responsibility.
