Question about Ovens

3 Answers

In the middle of cooking in my GE profile PB975 double oven w/ convection, the probe light began to flash and the oven turned off. I was not using the probe--it hasnt worked for a long time. I turned off the oven by the breaker for the night hoping it would reset, but when it was turned back on it is still flashing, and the clock didnt reset either, It is acting like The probe is inserted and I cannot use either oven.

    I wouldnt even know how to begin to do that.

    I already tried to reset it as stated, i left the breaker off all night. I doesnt seem like it reset because the time kept going. seems like it should have flashed 1200 but it was 7 something. about the time i turned it off.

    Thank you! That is exactly what happened! I was roasting vegetables in the top portion of the oven (squash and mushrooms) there was a lot of steam going right up the probe receptacle. I will try your solutions. Those are the most helpful--not call a repairman, which I could have figured out myself! Thanks again :)

Hello

The common cause of this problem is that grease or mist may have gotten into the probe socket,to clear this you will need to get a hair dryer and blow into the socket which is located on the right side under the metal circlular cap if the insulation is over saturated you might have to pull the oven and remove the side to dry it.

If the problem persists this means that either the probe jack or the wires going to the probe jack have shorted out thinking there is a probe inserted even though there is not.

You will need to replace the probe recepticle which comes with new wires to correct this issue. If you don't plan on using the oven probe, you can always clip the wires and tape the ends off as this will make it so that the board cannot sense the oven probe recepticle giving it a false reading.

Hi.

First remove the oven probe (ensure that oven is not hot first) and try resetting the oven. Trip the main circuit breaker to reset the oven. The light should not come on when the probe is not in.

If you keep getting the probe light with probe not in, that means that the contacts in the probe housing have melted and shorted. When this happens the electronic control keeps turning on probe light even when the probe is not in. In that case the probe housing must usually be replaced to fix the problem.

    Hi.

    RE:I already tried to reset it as stated, i left the breaker off all night.
    I doesnt seem like it reset because the time kept going. seems like
    it should have flashed 1200 but it was 7 something. about the time i
    turned it off.

    Then you have a shorted probe housing and you must have it replaced. The problem is quite common after self cleaning is performed.

    I see tha you gave me negative feedback and you passed the question to other expert. That is not really great for the expert assisting you. Your choice by the way.

    Goodbye.

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 that then check the control and door switch and replace the part that is bad. Hope this helps...

    To do this you need to take it apart....if you are not comfortable in doing this yourself then get a professional involved.

    That is the reason I told you that it is the sensor/control that is bad.

F9 error code while using the convection baking function


This is a lock switch error code. Check wiring to door lock switch (the wire harness may be connected wrong). Check for stuck lock switch. If the switch cannot be re adjusted, it must be replaced.

Oven bulb


i have a ge profile double oven and the glass cover on the top convection oven is held in place by grooves that latch onto the glass dome cover. Just turn the dome so that the handles on the glass dome cover are exposed. I used a flashlight and a screwdriver to push the dome to one side.

This is an electric convection oven


I am by no means an expert, but I believe the only thing differenty in a convection oven vs a regular oven is that there is a fan to conduct the heat quicker and more evenly. It has to do with heat tranfer rate. I can't imagine why aluminum foil would cause any problem.

Convection fan not working


Check for a bad fan motor or a jammed blade.
