I just tested the TCO, part # AP2023541, and found it to be faulty, However, the wiring harness that connects it to the rest of the board seems to have slightly burnt. Is it possible to replace just this wiring harness and the TCO, and if so, what part number is this wiring harness? It has a 3 wire port on one end, two red and one black wires coming from it, going to 2 clips that connect to the TCO. Thanks!
Answer Ben, You'd have to order the wire harness assembly WB18X10310 to get the wires you need, You could repair the harness wires and still be safe if done properly. Good Luck and Thanks
Unit is completely dead. 2 Fuses check out fine. The connection at the black wire is burnt, does this mean 1430 needs replacing or ???. Does this mean anything else downstream or upstream might be bad as well? Thanks!
Answer Hi Molly. Is your power cord still bringing in the 120vac to the fuse? what black wire is burnt? The one at the part #1430 as you mentioned? Of course this is part # WB21X10046. It is a thermal fuse. If the moisture sensor, part # is WB24X10044 is open it will not allow the circuit board to work. Are the fuses on the control boards good? Thank you.
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
