Error Message on GE Profile JBP48B0H1BB Electric Range

A couple years ago, I was boiling a pan of water (on an eye closest to the control panel) and forgot about it (the pan boiled dry). I then received an error message on the display, which read "F7 57". Now, anytime the oven is in operation for too long, the same error message will display and it will shut off. It's kind of like the oven has overheated or something. The stovetop will still function, but the oven will not work again until it has cooled down. I can blow a small, desktop fan on the control panel and it seems to prolong the use of the oven somewhat, which is weird.

Do I need to replace the control panel? GE/GE repairman WILL NOT HELP AT ALL!!

SOURCE: Stove/oven gets hot then shuts off

Shut the breaker off! These are the exact symptoms that a tenant of ours reported for their range. I went to check the range and found that one of the power wires on the terminal block in the back of the range was burning itself up. It had actually started a small wire fire. You need to pull the range out of it's hole and unplug it. Remove the panel in the back above where the cable goes into the range. Examine the power wires and terminal block carefully, because I bet you'll find one of the wires is burning up and needs to be repaired. Please write back and let know what you find.

SOURCE: cleaning and care for my GE Profile stovetop

The one thing I don't suggest is using the Ceramabryte product the dealer left with us. It leaves a greasy film. When I get ready to clean my black GE Profile, I pull off the controls to wash separately. Then I lift off the grates, take a single-edge razor blade to scrape anything stuck on (it doesn't scratch), then I use baking soda and scrub and scrub with lots of paper towels. Then I start cleaning off the baking soda with lots and lots more paper towels. There is still a film, but at least it's not greasy. At this point I grab some more dry paper towels, pour on a 3' puddle of rubbing alcohol and wipe it all over the stove top and front. You may have to do this twice. Then, if I don't turn on the hood light's brightest setting, it really doesn't look too bad. I have to do this at least once a week, as I have never had a stove that got so dirty so fast and was such a pain to clean.

FYI, I would never buy another of these stoves. Besides the cleaning issue, there is the fact of having to replace the igniter (glow plug?) twice in the first four years. My old, bottom-of-the line Magic Chef went 25 years with the first replacement not coming until it was about 15 years old. Also, the broiler is unimpressive and steaks, etc., just sort of steam. Can't get a really good crust going. It's a slide-in and the top is very narrow, front to back, because of the slanted control panel on the front, and so you really can't put two large pots or pans on one side. Let's see....oh yes, I ordered the unglazed grates for safety reasons and it came with the procelain glaze. Those were replaced free of charge, though I had to go pick them up. Then the first set of unglazed grates began to rust about six months into use, so had to be replaced (again, no charge at least). Recently I noticed that the inside walls of the oven, where the racks slide, are starting to rust. Finally, the burners are difficult to calibrate, which I really notice when I try to cook rice, which comes out right about 50% of the time.

Now, on top of all this, I have to worry about the glass door exploding?!?! Should I ban my grandchildren from the kitchen? Has anyone from Consumer Reports seen this website?

SOURCE: 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:

GE
Range/Stove/Oven Fault Codes Failure
Code
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.

B = Bad clock Unstick button or

We've seen similar problems due to an intermittent failure in the control board. If you can have it removed we can likely repair it for you.

SOURCE: older ge spacemaker range, temps wont boil water

Check your breakers to the oven. It sounds like one of the two of them have tripped and you are only getting 120 VAC.
Do you have a volt-ohm meter, and know how to use it?

Tip

GE Range flashing locked after boil over


GE Electric range with front controls. I had a pot boil over and spill over the front of the range, some water got on the membrane key panel. But I’m assuming some went behind the panel on to the control board. The LOCKED button started to flash randomly and the electric door latch was engaging and disengaging also randomly. Unplugging the unit and looking for any type of reset button did not help. The control board which is mounted behind the membrane panel got wet and was causing a short. Luckily it survived. I fixed it by removing the four stove knobs, four retaining plastic nuts that are mounted behind the knobs, and then the four (2 and 2 outer most) 1/4” bolts that hold the main panel on. I dried out the electric front door switch and the electric panel with hairdryer for 10 minutes. Plugged it back in and its all fixed. . No so good design to allow this to happen so easily so as I assembled it back together I put silicone around the membrane panel in hopes of preventing this from reoccurring.

I need a GE PROFILE SCHEMATIC


F1 error means there is a problem with the key panel and the key panel needs to be replaced. That kind of explains why you got the error when it was not in use.

Ge profile dbl oven keeps reading error message F7. Put cardboard card around ribbon cable on back of controller as advised a year ago on this site. We have moved it & changed it and now it works...


Hello,

The F7 error code means that a button on the touchpad is stuck. What the proper repair procedure is,is to first replace the touch pad and if F7 returns replace clock (also known as eoc or control board) Do not take this wrong but a no point in my 30 years appliance repair career exchanging info with my coworkers or even factory trainers at training sessions have i ever heard anything about putting cardboard around the touchpad ribbon cable.

Ge range js968 f0 error code


F0 error code is a failed thermistor control. The suggested fix is to replace the ERC(electric range control). You will need to inspect the ERC, touch panel, ect for any loose connections that could be causing a short. You can also try unplugging the range for 15 minutes or so and see if the error code clears. If not the ERC may need replacement.

GE Profile Performance Spectra Range error code F0


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.

Electric Oven not getting hot enough


Sir, I think the top oelement is for broiling ONLY. It should not turn on when baking. The clicking may be the oven heating up.
How far apart were the oven temp instrument and the digital?
Don't expect them to match...they are inaccurate.

1. Heat water until it boils. Place digital therm in boiling water until it comes up to 212deg. If it is not at 212 in boiling water, record the error.(this gives a rough calibration to the digital)
2 Turn on oven, set to 350 deg, place digital therm on rack. Wait until oven reaches 350 (on stove) and read the digital. Note the difference between the two

GE Profile Spectra XL 44 gas oven


If you can smell the gas when you turn on the oven, it may be on a separate igniter that has gone bad. I would check this first. If you are not getting gas to the oven, there is possibly an issue with the supply line.
