Question about GE JSP26 Electric Kitchen Range
About 15 years ago, this unit had the same problem. The repair receipt shows the technician "reset sensor plug". The plug wires looks clean. I pulled the temp sensor and I am getting 1077 Ohms at about 68 degrees. I assume this is the correct reading as far as I can determine. Do I need a new sensor or am I overlooking something? Thanks John
John , these models use a self-resetting, disc type thermal cut out in the sensor circuit. The normally open disc is wired in parallel with the sensor. When tripped, the thermal cut out shorts the sensor circuit resulting in an F4 failure code. Since you are reading the proper ohms in the sensor I believe you are ok there. They do have a kit WB24K5048 to correct this problem. The kit contains a higher rated thermal cut out, an insulation barrier and instructions. Catriver...post back.
