What it is the function of the GE TCO SENSOR and most common causes to going bad? Also, how do I test it?
Answer Hello Jose! It is the thermal cut off. If the temperature inside the oven cavity gets too hot this part will open and shut off power to the unit. It could become defective due to age or the unit overheating. You can test this part with a multimeter TJMA-DM1. Here is a link from our free repair forum you can refer to for help with using a multi meter. Hope this helps, thanks! http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Other than the GE TCO, oven cavity sensor going bad, what else could cause the F1 code to come on every time we program cook - the glass covering the bulbs has been cleaned.
Answer Tom, if you've tested or replaced the TCO, and still have the problem, you need to consider the "smart board"WB27X10358 and the wiring between the TCO and smart board, hope this is helpfull. Good Luck
