Press the oven light switch in and see if the it returns to normal. The oven light switch is part of the self clean circuit and it is is not depressed or not working then it could be the entire problem. If pressing the switch in cures the problem, then the switch is working fine and the clock oven control will need to be replaced. Happy New year and have a wonderful day. Oven light switch part number WB24K10068, Oven control part number WB27K10319. when changeing out this part you have to remove the overlay with button description on it and transfer to new clock, try gentel heating it before trying to remove or the paint will rip off and you will need a new overlay here is the part number just in case WB27K10408

350 is an average of temperature. So your thermometer is not going to read that, it is reading actual temperature. So to get the average, you must use five cycles not counting the preheat cycle. turn the oven on, when you here the first click you then can start recording five clicks of the relay after that , the temperature will got way up and way down, so you should have five lows and five highs, then you average to get the set temp. All manufacturers allow a 25 to 50 degree range of error. In your owners manual you will find calibration mode and how to preform it. I would advise not to go changing it all gung ho and trying to remedy a temperature difference. Small increments of 5 degrees and give it a try. Good luck and Happy baking.

you have a bad control board.try this go to this site,get the number and call them to see how much it is to rebuild you clock assy.
i've done this with older thermador clock assy. because you can't buy the clock anymore so you send out your clock and have it rebuilt,it should be alot cheaper than buying a new one if you can still get it.hope this helps you out.

you either have a bad sensor or a bad clock assy. change the sensor first or check it with a meter it should read around 1080 ohms if this is good you have a bad computer board or clock assy. same part.if this a slide in stove with the burners on top there should be a tech sheet on the back,if this is a wall oven there should be a tech sheet below the top panel,slide it out and tilt it forwards enough to remove the top panel and of course kill the power to it first

what was the error code?you should never self clean your oven before any big holidays,for reasons like this, if it takes out a part the part most likely will have to be ordered and the last day they take orders at my parts store is monday before thanksgiving so if it's your clock and you have to order it you might not have it for thanksgiving so hopefully you just have a bad latch assy. and you can get it fixed before the holiday,from what i've seen i will never self clean my oven,i use easy off and scrub it,the oven gets up to 1000 degrees and it damages the electronics in the oven.the clicking you hear could be the latch assy. unplug the oven.open the door and see if the hook part that locks into the door isn't jammed,i just went out tuesday to change a latch assy and that part was jammed,the rod that goes from the motor and to the door latch was hitting the metal part of the latch that bolts to the frame and i couldn't move the hook part or catch at all and the motor was clicking trying to move it,i had to lift the top of the stove,bend the body of the catch assy. so the rod could move freely and that fixed it.but using the self clean short lives the oven and it can damage the latch or the clock assy.send the error or just goggle it and it will tell you what it is.

Stuck or defective button on the key panel. Unplug unit, then Try disconnecting ribbon from control to keypad and then connect back.

To set the clock on the JB860SJ1SS, press and hold the 9 and 0 keypads simultaneously for 3 seconds (or a bit longer). Then type the current time using the keypad. Press Start to save the current time. This is shown on page 13 of the manual; see item 7 Clock.

Sears Parts Direct has the manual available here: https://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/user-manuals/JB860SJ1SS-GE-ELECTRIC%20RANGE-manual . The direct link to download the manual is currently https://c.searspartsdirect.com/mmh/pd_download/lis_pdf/OWNM/1508037L.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Either bulb is bad or wiring is bad going to light socket or switch controlling it is bad

GE Ovens | Answered on Nov 01, 2017

Call warranty service as anything else may void your warranty.

GE Ovens | Answered on Oct 22, 2017

Look for the problem in 3 places.
1) the element has burned out.
2) The connector where the element is connected to the wiring has failed, or
3) the wiring has burned in two.
God bless your efforts.

I do not have specifics to your model...but at times the F5 code with GE ovens means there is an issue somewhere in the sensing circuit which measures the oven temperature. It could be the sensor itself (looks like a thin pencil sticking out from the back of the oven) or it could be in the wiring from the sensor back to the control unit display. Sometimes hitting the CLEAR OFF button helps...also totally depowering the oven via your circuit breaker panel and repowering....but odds are low that will 100% solve it.

Likely an internal fuse

Then you need to replace the keypad assembly or the oven.

GE Ovens | Answered on Oct 06, 2017

They do charge a fortune for parts. Get the part number for the controller and then log it into ebay. Often you can get the parts there for a much better price. Otherwise repair will not be cost effective unless the part is dirt cheap. Yeah, right!
