Temp probe indicator stays on

The "probe installed indicator light" stays on when there is no probe installed. The upper oven will not operate without programing in the probe even though the probe is not installed.

    I don't have a GE oven and I did not change the temp reading from F to C. The indicator came on and stayed on during regular oven operation. The probe is not installed, why would I want to inspect it?

If you’ve accidentally switched the oven control on your GE oven from Fahrenheit to Celsius (or vice versa), it can seem like an oven control problem; the keypad will accept some temperature selections and not others. Easy enough to switch back to the way you want it– this excerpt from your owner’s manual explains the technique:

Your oven control is set to use the Fahrenheit

temperature selections but you may change this

to use the Celsius selections.

Press the BAKE and BROIL HI/LO

pads (on double oven models use

the upper oven controls) at the same

time for 3 seconds until the display

shows SF.

Press the BROIL HI/LO pad. The

display will show F (Fahrenheit).

Press the BROIL HI/LO pad again. The

display will show C (Celsius).

Press the START pad.

NOTE: On double oven models the new setting

will be displayed for both ovens.

Sounds like your probe connection may be shorted. Can you inspect the probe itself, and perhaps do a test for continuity with an ohm meter? Also, you might be able to disable the probe in the menu settings, and run it on manual, just for a test.

Do you still have the user's manual for this unit?

    hmmmm...that sounds quite perplexing. So, if I have this correct, you have a unit, that without the probe installed, or when it is, still will not function. Am I inthe right space on this with you?

I have F2 error on Ge profile electric oven and sometimes after a preheat it shuts off

Generally speaking, F2 fault code indicates the oven exceeded 590 degrees with the door unlocked. This could be caused by a stuck relay on the oven control board or it could be caused by high resistance in the oven temperature sensor probe.

If the element will shut off then the likely failure is the oven temperature sensor probe. The sensor is located inside the oven cavity. It will be protruding from the rear panel in the upper left or upper right corner. The sensor can be removed and replaced from inside the oven cavity

I have a Jenn Air JJW9830DDP double oven electric, and the temperature in the oven is about 100' less than what it reads on the display. I tested the temp sensor and it ready 1073 ohms. Any s

Well, your temp sensors can still be bad. If not, there's always a new control board you buy!

However, I wouldn't drink water from that oasis without making ABSOLUTELY sure I'm not seeing a mirage.

The only common denominators between your upper and lower oven temp readings is the firmware and the oven thermometer you are using to visually check the temps.
What type of thermometer are you using to check your oven temperatures with?
If it's not a digital thermometer used specifically for testing ovens, you might just be leading leading yourself astray.
You need a calibrated thermometer. If I don't have a calibrated digital thermometer on me, I use two or three oven thermometers (the dial type) and average the readings.
It's the only way to be as close as possible with a digital probe.

If you have thoroughly verified that your oven is in fact not reading the correct temperature, then you can adjust it +/- 35 degrees F via your oven's control panel.
To adjust the oven temperature:
1 - Press Setup pad.
2 - Select the down arrow to scroll to the next screen.
3 - Select Temp Adjust using the Quickset pads.
4 - Select upper or lower oven (select models).
-"Set temperature offset using the Upper Set Knob" is displayed.
5 - Enter the desired temperature change using the Set knob.
The temperature can be increased or decreased up to 35 degrees.
The temp. change is displayed at the top of the window.
6 - Press the Set knob to accept the change.

Now, if you are still worried about the temp. reading being off, replace both the upper and lower temp sensors. That's all you can do besides replace the main board.

GE oven JKP26GOP2BG wont heat

either the temp sensor probe in the oven cavity it open/shorted or way off scale and telling the control board the units up to the temp set point,theres a way to test these with an ohm-meter for resistance at certain temperature but i dont have the chart for that test,it may be inside the unit if you can locate it

Oven is not staying at the set temperature. It will go as much as 200 degrees higher than set temp

This indicates a failure in the temperature probe. This is easy to check and replace. Here is a link that will walk you thru checking and replacing an oven Temperature Sensor .If you need diagrams and illustrations of your specific model enter your model their. All parts come with installation instructions.

I have a Magic Chef Chateau Gas range. The upper oven does not heat properly. It comes on, but never gets up to operating temps.

you could have a bad ignitor check that it is actually igniting the gas and you can see flame, also check the cavity sensor a probe that sticks into the oven at the top usually on the left top corner but if the bake cycle works with good results them it is ok
check for flame when it starts give it a mibute to ignite, if it does not then you need to replace the broil ignitor.

I cannot get the oven to come on after I used the self cleaning.

Things to check- The screw in fuses, they are usually the 30 amp fuses for the oven. Next is the clock assembly, often these clocks will have the words "push for manual" or "turn for manual", this will put the clock back into the normal operating mode rather than the automatic mode. Next, you may have to remove the power and check for any burnt wires. If all checks ok, you will have to test the selector switch and oven control.
 Oven temp problems: Temperature is too low possible trouble makers, blown oven fuse, bake element is out, burnt wire, oven probe clips, oven temp control, oven temp sensor.
Temperature is too high in the oven possible trouble makers, oven temp control, oven relay ( if used ), oven probe clips, oven temp sensor, shorted wire.
These oven probe clips often rust off and the oven temp probe hangs down, or touches the oven wall giving false temperature readings to the oven control.
