I have a GE double wall oven. It bakes ok, but when I try to run the self clean cycle in the top oven, I get an F-3 error code. I usually have to turn off the power to get it to shut down and let it cool. Would it be the sensor that is bad? and the number on the sensor isn't the same description when I pull up a part photo.
Answer Hello Diana,
F-3 is a shorted or open sensor. This can also be the result of contamination on terminals, a pinched wire in the sensor circuit, or a cold solder joint on the control board. To test the sensor, using an ohm meter the sensor should read about 1100O at about 70°F. Be sure to tap on the sensor while testing in case of an intermittant sensor. The part number shown for this model by GE is WB23T10015.
My problem is the convection baking temp control works fine but, the bake mode temp is low by 50 degrees. Is it the control board ? Thanks.
Answer Hello Robert,
You would want to check the temperature sensor WB23T10002 to see what it ohms out at. It should ohm out at about 1100 ohms at room temperature. If the oven sensor checks ok then you would want to replace the control board WB27T10246. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
After turning oven on, start to get a F-2 Error code and beeping noise? What could be the problem?
Answer Hello Brian,
An F2 Error code indicates that the control senses oven temp above 615 degrees. There are 2 things that you want to check. If the oven had been on for a while then you would want to check your relay contacts for the back or broil elements. If you find this then you need to replace Oven control WB27T11312. If you are just starting unit and it flashes F2 error code then you want to check sensor. Using multi-meter ohm out the oven sensor WB21T10007. You should get 1100 ohms room temp. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.
