GE Range / Stove / Oven Fault Codes
Failure Code Fault Code Description Solution
F0 Stuck touch pad Usually means that either the touch pad or the oven control (also called clock or ERC) is defective and needs to be replaced. If this fault code cannot be cancelled, replace the oven control (also called clock or ERC), touch pad, or both.
F1 Stuck touch pad Usually means that either the touch pad or the oven control (also called clock or ERC) is defective and needs to be replaced. If this fault code cannot be cancelled, replace the oven control (also called clock or ERC), touch pad, or both.
F2
During
BAKE
Control senses oven temperature above 615F-630F If actual over temperature condition occurred: Look for welded relay contacts on bake or broil relays. If this happens, replace oven control (also called clock or ERC).

If no over temperature condition occurred: Look for a high resistance connection or any other cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace sensor if found defective.

Remember: Oven control (ERC) measures resistance of sensor circuit , not actual oven temperature.
F2
During
CLEAN
Control senses oven temperature above 915F-930F If actual over temperature condition occurred: Look for welded relay contacts. If this happens, replace oven control (also called clock or ERC).

If no over temperature condition occurred: Look for a high resistance connection or any other cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace sensor if found defective. Check door lock switches.

Remember: Oven control (ERC) measures resistance of sensor circuit , not actual oven temperature.
F3
or
F4
Open or shorted oven temperature sensor (RTD) Check sensor harness and harness connection between oven sensor and oven control. Replace oven temperature sensor (RTD) if wiring is ok.
F5 Loss of relay drive circuit If this fault code cannot be cancelled, replace the oven control (also called clock or ERC).
F8 Shorted meat probe Problem could be with the probe, the receptacle, or probe circuit. Check probe. Look for pinched wire. Look for condensation or contamination on probe receptacle.

F9 Lock switch Check wiring to door lock switch (the wire harness may be connected wrong). Check for stuck lock switch.
FC Problem with door lock circuit such as pinched wires between control and door lock switches on motorized lock circuits Check wiring and test operation of switches.
FD Shorted meat probe Problem could be with the probe, the receptacle, or probe circuit. Check probe. Look for pinched wire. Look for condensation or contamination on probe receptacle. Replace probe if all else checks out ok.
FF Loss of door motor safety switch Replace the oven control (also called clock or ERC).
FFF Control error, failed EEPROM Replace the oven control board (also called clock or ERC).

The main control operates a series of software commands, which control the various features and functions of the oven. Each function or operation has a numerical value assigned to it. The numerical values can be added up - this is called the check sum operation. Every time the system is powered up and after each clean cycle the system performs a check sum and compares the value to the value programmed into the software (stored in memory).

An EEPROM check sum error or FFF code occurs when the values differ. If this happens, replace the oven control board (also called clock or ERC).

GE Microwave Fault Codes
Failure Code Fault Code Description Solution
F1 Oven cavity thermistor open Check oven thermistor for continuity. Replace if zero or infinite ohms.
F2 Oven cavity thermistor closed Check oven thermistor for continuity. Replace if zero or infinite ohms.
F3 Key panel (touch pad) shorted This code will occur if a shorted key panel is detected continuously over 60 seconds. Replace key panel (also called touch pad).
F4
or
F5
Humidity sensor open or shorted Replace humidity sensor.
F6 Shorted temperature probe This code will occur if temp. probe is detected as shorted continuously over 5 seconds. Replace temperature probe.
