I am officially ready to take a sledge hammer to this oven. With a new remodel 3 years ago, I've had to replace my GE profile microwave and now finally giving up on this GE profile wall oven. We have repaired it 4 times with the same problem occurring over and over again- F7 error code, broiler turns on and flips from high to low. (Fear that it could overheat and cause a fire?) Shortly after goes to F7 and won't work. My previous oven was over 20 years old and never had a problem. I will never buy another GE product again as the company gave us no help. What is the cause of this problem and is there a fix other than cleaning the contacts???

I Also have a wall oven by preway in a 1955 spartan trailer, basic same problem, I am told the control assembly that you turn to set temperature needs to be replaced, if it is adjusted to far on some part behind the controll knob it will screw up the new one also, Spencers appliance in Portland Oregon worked on mine years ago and was able to get parts, Good Luck
Hello & Welcome to FixYa F3 error code indicates an open/shorted oven temperature sensor and to solve this problem the temp.sensor needs replacement. If you want to be sure before replacing the sensor then you can test it with a voltmeter for around 1100ohms....if it reads more then this then it needs replacement however, if the reading is around or less then 1100ohms then it is the control board that needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions. Kevin
The F3 fault code description is an open or shorted oven temperature sensor. Please check the sensor harness and harness connection between oven sensor and oven control. If the wiring is ok and still encountering the same error, please replace the temperature sensor.
you either have a bent door hinge or a broken door spring. check the hinges by opening the door and see if it opens past 90 degrees. if it leans towards the floor then the hinges are bent. if not then your door springs are broken off. you can check this by seeing if the door "feels" heavy when opening. either way the door should close tight against the frame when up and the light should not come on without opening the door.
You said, , 22 years ago you built the house you are currently living in.
The above oven/microwave oven was built in. You are interested in
replacing this unit with a new unit but it must be the same size. ? by the way i You would be happy with a double oven versus the
microwave/oven duo. You have measured across the front of the unit and
it only measures 26" across. Any assistance you could give us would be
I can help you! The front is 26 inches. And how high is it from the top to bottom? Also when I sell a wall oven I always send out the installer to check the hole or cutout size. Most of the time no wall oven fits with out at least one cut! Do you have any room to cut a little on all sides? What is your model number now. And what color do you want now?? I will send you some GE wall oven models and sizes so you can check your self if it will fit. usually they have to cut at least one side to fit it in the old hole!
Most likely the problem is with the circuit breaker, not with the oven. Your oven needs 240V (two legs, 120V each) to work. If one of the legs is missing you will have the oven light but nothing else. The first thing you have to do is to check the power from the circuit breaker. It must to be a double breaker for the oven and it suppose to be about 120V between ground and each leg and about 240V between legs themselves. It is better to call a professional to do it for you due to very high risk.
