I have a GE Built-in Electric Wall Oven with a bad temperature sensor (see attached photos). Model JTP20S0F3SS Serial ZG619527Q.
I was getting an F3 error when trying to use the oven. Well, actually, the oven would work for about 10 minutes, and then error out. So, I bought the new sensor, and was going to replace it. However, when I took the old one out, the electrical connector is scorched! You can barely see in the photos where the non-sensor wires on the other side of the connector are a bit discolored, but they are.
At this point, it appears I will need to pull the oven to be able to replace the non-sensor wires as well. Can these wires be replaced with a repair part? If not, it looks like I'm hosed, as the connector is scorched such that the two parts are melted together.
What has allowed this to happen? This seems a bit scary. Help!
Thanks for looking.
