Question about GE Profile Spectra JGBP79 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Touch Pad After the power went out one night in our area, the control panel(or touch pad) is black. Nothing. Can not use the oven. tried to unplug it for awhile, still nothing. Do I need a whole new touch pad control thing?? This happened 4 months ago, I called to just check price on new panel, cost about 300.00, and would take 3 months to get in. (?) I paid good money for this range back in 99, it should last longer than this. (my moms range is 40 plus years old, and still cookin!) Has there been problems with these panels? Thanks for any and all help....(I'll bake ya a cake if I can repair with little or no cost. :)

Yes the control panel will need to be replaced. The problem now is these solid state controls and probably made in Mexico. 40 yrs ago everything was mechanical and had fewer problems.

Model sve47100 range - display shows f1 and nothing on oven works

This simple test will help determine whether the ERC (Electronic Range Control or Clock) or the touch pad is defective when F1 error code is present.

Note: Some models incorporate the touch pad in to the ERC as a single assembly, in which case this test is not necessary. Simply replace the ERC (Clock).

Warning: If you feel in any way uncomfortable performing this test or making this repair, please contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

1. Disconnect power to the range (unplug the range power cord or turn the power off to the range at the circuit breaker). It is very important that the power to the range has been disconnected, so please double check before continuing. 2. Gain access inside the control panel. 3. Disconnect the touch pad (also called keypad or membrane switch) ribbon from the ERC. 4. Make sure there are no lose wires, or anything else that may cause a short when power is turned back on. Assemble the control panel back the way it was. 5. Turn the power back on. 6. Wait for at least one hour to see if the F1 code comes back (usually accompanied by a beeping) 7. If F1 comes back, replace the ERC. If it does not, replace the touch pad.

On the touch pad numbers 3, 6, 7 and 0 dont work

sounds like the touch pad control has failed ... there is a touch pad on this unit and also a control board located behind units touch pad... you can gain access to this by unplugging unit and removing console that houses touch pad /clock assembly ... once removed the only test there really is to do would be with power off remove ribbon cable to touch pad and make sure clear of any dust /debri and reconnect there are 2 small holes in ribbon cable that are used when reconnected fir into small slots and firmly connect... if that doesnt fix i would recommend a new touch pad... not sure what area your located... there is a distributor for sharp in dallas ,texas called
global micro parts... reputable company that if you give them your model number they can assist you with the part.... good luck to you

FO error message. Oven light stuck on. No buttons work.

The F0 is a Function Key Stuck error - Replace touch pad or touch pad and control board if it is one assembly. Refer to F1 Test for more information.


How To Perform A F1 Touch Pad / ERC Test
This test is easy to perform and will help you determine whether the Electronic Range Control (ERC, control board) or touch pad is defective when the F1 code is displayed.

Note: With some models, the ERC and the touch pad are one single unit and therefore this test is not necessary. The entire assembly must be replaced.

Warning: If you have any doubts in your ability or safety of the repair, please contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

1. Disconnect the power to the range by either unplugging the power cord, or turning the power off at the circuit breaker. Always make sure the power as been disconnected properly before beginning this test.
2. Access the control panel.
3. Disconnect the touch pad ribbon from the ERC.
4. Reassemble the control panel. Make sure to check for any additional defects such as frayed or lose wires that could be causing the problem.
5. Turn the power back on.
6. Wait up to an hour for the F1 code to reappear. This could be accompanied by an alert such as a beeping sound.
7. If the F1 code reappears, replace the ERC. If it does not, replace the touch pad.

F7 fault code on the Jenn-air W30400W

The F7 error code on your oven indicates the touch pad has failed. To repair it you will need to replace the touch pad which is listed as a control panel w/keypad in the parts diagram.
If you do the repair yourself, disconnect the power to the oven. Take the 3 screws out above the door that hold the control panel on to the oven. Pull the control panel out at the bottom and lift it up, then pull out the top and drop it down so you can see the back side of the control panel, and you will see a ribbon connector going from the touchpad to the electronic oven control (ERC).
There is a latch holding the ribbon connector to the ERC, raise the latch to release and pull the ribbon out of the ERC.
Replace the part and reverse these instructions to replace the control panel.

Hope this helps .

Jenn-air jes9800AAB keeps buzzzing, front function panel flashes on and off

Your control panel is getting ready to quit. Mine did the same thing, I ignored it and now nothing on the touch panel works. About $150.00 for the part.
