Question about GE Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

I have a JS968 GE Profile range that the ASM sensor went bad. When pulling the sensor to replace it with the new I discovered that the plastic connectors had disintegrated from heat. Is it possible to connect the wires using wire nuts?

Hi. Yes it is possible to connect the wires with wire nuts. (Without tape! / tape can melt) You must use ceramic / porcelain wire nuts (white) in HOT areas. Make sure it is a clean connection with no copper strands exposed The plastic ones will melt like your connector did. Most appliance parts supply stores will have ceramic / porcelain wire nuts.

Here is a source for ceramic wire nuts if you can not find them. (15 ea / pack) $5.65 +shipping

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Error code F760 GE profile oven

Hello. The error code refers to a defective keypad. I will absolutely need the entire model number(ex JS968BF1BB thru 6BB, JS968BK1BB thru 5BB, JS968KF1CC thru 6CC, JS968KK1CC thru KK5CC, JS968SF1SS thru SF6SS), and there are a few more model series.
The part mounting, etc. is basically the same--HOWEVER, depending on the model, the part number is different. (example JS968BF1BB touch panel is WB27T10439. JS968BK1BB touch panel is WB27T10751 and so on). Just looking on the net, I saw prices for this part in the neighborhood of +/- 200.00. Shop carefully for the best price--If you are hesitant about replacing the panel yourself, DEFINITELY CALL FOR SERVICE. Your range has several microprocessor controlled boards. I have replaced a fair amount of them--and no, they aren't bad or anything like that either. If you're going to do it yourself, take pix as you go, make a diagram if needed for the screw locations, etc. ALWAYS REMOVE POWER FROM THE RANGE BEFORE TOUCHING YOUR TOOLS AND STARTING WORK!! I hope I helped you!

Need range JS968 cooktop seems to not cool down when turned down, even boils food when turned down to low, what can be done...I'm almost ready to purchase nother range. Thanks

It is normal for food to continue to boil for a short period of time after turning the burner to a low setting. Is your burner staying hot long after it is turned off?

Ge profile js96850k1ss takes about 40 minutes to heat up to 400 degrees. Is this a baking element problem or is it normal?

It is NOT normal. You probably have a wiring problem - check for bad contacts in the plug, socket, circuit breaker, or the controller switch. Also look at the wiring to the heating element. If at any place you see signs of significantly overheated insulation on the wiring, you're probably looking at the bad contact. Clean the contact with dry Scotch-Brite, or if it is corroded or otherwise damaged, replace. If the insulation on the wire is hard and brittle, you will have to cut it back and replace the terminal, or replace the wire if it no longer reaches. (If you elect to splice the wire, make sure the new piece has at least the same current, voltage and temperature rating as the original, and use a splice listed for the same.)

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.

The electric oven will not heat. Too the setting

If there is not heating at all, check the temp probe (SENSOR ASM (Oven Sensor Assembly)) the wirings to the elements, and the control assembly.There is also a thermal fuse that need to be checked.

If heating is poor, test both elements, check the vent system an control assembly.
