Oven keeps beeping every few minutes and displays error code.
Answer Hello Sridhar,
Could we ask you to please re-post and list the fault code?
I have a 19yr old GE electric Oven. Model - JDP37G0T1BB The oven does not heat to the proper temperature. Ex. - I set it at 400, and it does not go above 260. I replaced the heating element. Is there a way I can determine if this may be a sensor of thermostat issue w/out having to buy both, or trial and error? Is there anything else it could be? Adam
Answer Hello Adam,
The sensor WB21X5301 should read about 1100 ohms of resistance at about 70°F. If it reads good, turn the power off to the unit and open the control panel. Find the terminal on the control labeled BAKE and remove the wire. Make sure the wire cannot contact ground or any other connector and reconnect power. Set the unit to bake and test for 120Vac at the terminal. If no voltage is there, the control has failed. If 120Vac is there, the other side of the circuit, (the wire you disconnected), should have 120Vac on it. If it does, the element is failing. If it doesn't, you need to trace the circuit to locate the bad connection. This can be at the terminal block, the wall outlet, or the breaker.
I have a GE gas oven JGBP79AEW1AA. The control board recently stopped working. I purchased a new control board and installed it. The clock works. When I hit Bake, it flasses and beeps F3. Which part is it?
The F3 indicates an open sensor circuit. Measure Sensor Circuit Resistance at Sensor. Lock switch connector plug at ERC should be approx. 1100 ohms @ room temp. If Circuit Open look for: open Sensor-measure directly across sensor (pull sensor into oven approx. lo” for access to sensor disconnect. Cut or pinched sensor harness Loss of contact within sensor harness connectors at back of oven or at ERC.
Should I order an "oven sensor assembly" if the temperature of my gas oven only reaches 100 degrees? Is that the part I need to order?
Answer Hello Nancy. Test for 3.2-3.6 volts AC at the gas safety valve with the igniter turned on. If the voltage is there, you have a bad safety valve. If the voltage is low, you have a weak igniter and the igniter will need to be replaced. 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
