Question about GE Profile Spectra JGBP90 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

My Kenmore range model C970-628091 keeps beeping and flashing an F1 or F3 error code when I try to bake at 400 degrees and whenever I try to use timer for baking. When I press cancel the beeping and error codes cancel out but they come right back on soon after I try to preheat the oven again or try to continue baking. Can any one tell me what the error codes mean or provide a solution to this problem?

Fridgetech is right. It's the temperature sensor. I had the same problem, but I was getting the F3 and F2 errors when attempting to preheat the oven.
A R Marshall said that he replaced the sensor but he still got the same F3 error. That happened to me too! It worked for a few weeks, then it began to malfunction again. It finally started showing preheated as soon as the oven was turned on, but never heated at all. One night at 3AM, the error code and beeper went off while we were sleeping! That happened on several occasions at various times of day, and it was necessary to kill the power to stop it. The power could then be restored and the error would stop.
Ours is a Hotpoint range (made by GE). It's my understanding that most ranges have the same or similar error codes.
The sensor was $85.00 at the parts store, but I got it on line for about $60.00 including shipping. The instructions said to strip the wires and then twist them together with wire nuts. But the new sensor had a plug that fit so I used it, and it worked for a short while.
As I looked through the problems and possible solutions, someone said look for burnt wires. So I opened it up and looked but there was nothing like that. Then I remembered the instructions that said to hard wire, so I examined the plug which seemed to have one short wire inside. I plugged it back in and tested with the same negative results. Now suspecting the plug I cut off both sides, stripped the wires and hard wired using two small wire nuts. It immediatly began working normally!
Something is wrong with the plug connector.
Try cutting out the plug and hard wiring before ordering a new part. But if you need a new part, eliminate the plug!
May God bless you and keep you safe!

Whirlpool Range Error code F1 F3


Unplug the range.
Remove the rear panel to access the temp probe.
Unplug the temp probe and test for 1100 ohms.
Test the temp probe to ground also.
Sometimes the connectors are bad.and must be direct wired.
Unplug and re-plug the ribbon connector to the ERC.
F-1 is a connection problem since you have a new control.

Oven beeping f1 and f3


Here are the error codes for your range:

F1 Circuit board defective Replace control board F2 1. The oven temp has risen above 665F and the door is not locked or
2. The temp has risen above 965F with the door locked 1. Check oven temp in mode that failure occurred. Replace EOC (Electronic Oven Control) if above limits
2. Check 8-pin connector. Check and replace oven temperature sensor if necessary F3 Oven temperature sensor is open (above 3000 ohms) Check resistance of oven temperature sensor, check for open wiring between oven temperature sensor and control F4 Oven temperature sensor is shorted (below 500 ohms) Check resistance of oven temperature sensor, check for shorted wiring between oven temperature sensor and control F5 Internal watchdog circuit has detected a failure Defective EOC (Electronic Oven Control) F6 Shorted buttons Check push buttons and dome switches on control F8 Logic interrupted (lock motor switch sequence) Check door lock switches and wiring

Most likely problem is the oven temp. sensor. Should check around 1100 ohms at room temp. I would replace that first because it is the easiest and cheaper than an oven control.

Error code F1


Error code F1 is for a defective touch pad or membrane (usually the touch pad). In this case you will need replace touch pad or membrane. It seems that water entered the touch pad during the self cleaning process, remove the touch pad and try to dry it. Good luck !!
