GE Range Touchpad Problem

3 posts in this topic

We've got a GE electric range model JB600G0D4AD with a glass(?) control panel.  Earlier this evening it suddenly decided not to work properly.  The clock "button" controls work but none of the oven control "buttons" work.  The burners work.  I unplugged the unit for 5 minutes to see if there was some sort of reset.  None of the "buttons" look damaged nor is the panel glass scratched.

Any ideas of what I can check?  I can't seem to find much info other than the panel has some sort of "crystal" thing.

Thanks!

The problem is either the touch panel or the ERC board. There are two good tests for determining which is the problem. One is to ohm out the touch pad matrix, especially on the keypad functions that are inop. The other it to do a live test where you look for 120v on the bake relay. Post your wiring diagram or fax it to me if you need help reading it: 775-416-4449.

    I sense an F7 approaching.  Couldn't hurt to leave it unplugged all night and try it again in the morning.   Then leave it plugged in plugged in all day after that to allow an error code if any to appear.    I have first hand knowledge that the glass touch pads F7 just like the plastic ones do.  The Samurai gives you good advice.   Always back up what the force tells you with a meter.
