As with all 240 volt appliances... if one breaker pops... you can't see it because it is a double breaker. You have to shut it down then turn it on. Ask again if it still doesn't work.

I have the exact same problem with my GE wall oven, my model number is JCKS05BA2BB. Is there a known fix?

Self cleans generally do a good ****on small messes in 2 -2.5 hours. Larger messes take 3. Leaving the racks in is okay...but they will likely lose their shiny appearance. Manuals are on the GE website.

An error F7 on this model means there is an issue with the touch-panel. It might need to be replaced even if the error is intermittent. The ERC (an electronic clock controller) might also have issues by can diagnosed further if replacing the touch-panel doesn't completely solve the issue--however, it should.

We have a new GE Range and the signal beeps at about 100 degrees below the temp which we have set . The dealer replaced the sensor and the control circuit, but there was no change.
A service tech from GE came to our house and explained that the new ovens have a bottom heating element which is covered and therefore heats the lower part of the oven more slowly; but the exposed upper element heats more rapidly and the sensor is located near the upper element. We were advised to wait for about 15-20 minutes after the beep before placing the food in the oven. Judging from the number of comments found online, this seems to be a feature of newer ranges.

This is most likely a Thermostat/Temperature controller OR a Thermistor problem, first locate and replace the thermistor. If it still isn't going, then replace the Thermostat/Thermostat controller.
Below is a link for your manual.

The problem is usually the igniter not reaching the correct amp draw .When the igniter does not reach the correct amp draw it may allow the gas valve to partially open or not open at all. The igniters are inexpensive and easy to replace. This video will walk you thru the correct procedure for testing an oven igniter. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.

Hi, you need to have your control board rebuilt or replaced (if it's stll available). Here's an article I wrote on this failure last year if you want to read the details.

Usually this means a stuck key on the keypad. A tech can disconnect the keypad, then power up the oven. If no error code: problem with keypad, if still get error code: problem with electronic control.

Cycling the power off and then on again will sometimes reset it...often you will have to call the customer service number to get the steps to take to unlock that...
