When I turn the GE oven on sometimes it works fine other times it will shut off. When it shuts off it will give the F2 or F3 error sign.Can you please tell me what this means? Thanks

The "F3" error code means the oven sensor is open, I suggest you flip breaker off then back, on Re check for error, if OK fine if not turn back off and fix or call for service man...

I have a GE oven that is getting an intermittent F3 or sometimes F2 error. I am an electronics technician. I just need to know what to look for to fix this problem. Thanks Model# JDP3980W188

F2 indicates that the oven detected an over temperature condition. This could be caused by several things including a bad temperature sensor or problem in the door lock circuit.

F3 indicates an open temperature sensor ... so likely the cause of both. It should read 1180 ohms at 70F unplugged from the controller.

I can send you the tech sheet if you email me at (include the details in your email).
