GE Built in Oven Err Code

13 posts in this topic

HELP!  I have a GE Built in oven Model Number JTP18B0A2BB, the keypad works sometimes and not others.  It started when it would pop up Broil HI push start by it's self, I killed power and now if I hit "Bake" and the temp then hit start it displays "Err".  Does anyone have an idea?  I can only find this model number when I drop the "0" to  be a JTP18BA2BB.

Thanks,

I can still use the Broil, one service guy told me it sounded like the clock control.  Does it still sound like the keypad to you?  Numbers do work but sometimes if you hit a 3 you get a 1.  We hardly use the oven, I can't believe it's worn out, but it is 6 years old.

 

THANKS,

It you hit bake does it not want you to enter a bake temperature?  The Force is with the Samurai.  He speaks the truth,

Yes, If I hit Bake it does want me to enter a temp, I have to hit the numbers slow and hard to get the correct temp, then when I hit the Start button the temp disapears and the letters "Err" appear.

Thanks,

The Force is telling me your oven may have been put into centigrade mode.  Try entering 100 degrees. (212 centigrade) and see if it accepts that.

You are correct, it wouldn't let me put in 100 but accepted 105 and it turned on, how do I get back to "F".  I still think I may have a keypad problem, it's hard to enter numbers and sometimes puts numbers that I haven't pressed.

 

Thanks!!!!!!!!!

Your owner's manual explains how to switch from C to F.

I have had numerous problems with the clock/oven control terminal, the ribbon connector is faulty at times, disconnecting and reconnecting helps for a period of time.

Now the oven broil and oven light and buzzer activate by themselves because of a faulty relay, checked relays found heat residue on the contacts - need help locating relays if they are even available, also can this board be repaired. Robertshaw is the company that makes these circuit boards.

Any information is appreciated.
