Hi,

Just joined, great site.  Got a problem with a GE wall oven at my mothers place.  Unfortunately, I am not there.  Service guy says she needs an electronic control unit (WB27K5040), which is NLA.  He did no diagnostics, just looked at it and said that was it.  But being a j*rk would not remove it and let me get it rebuilt.  Seems like if I could get there, I should disconnect it at the board and wait awhile before reconnecting to see if code goes away, right?  Any tips here will be greatly apprciated as a new 1800 buck double oven is out of the question.  How difficult to remove unit, if necessary.  Thanks in advance. 

Also, couldn't figure out how to search site, as I'm sure this has been discussed.

OK, figured out the search this morning on the site, found great info.  Seems as if the check is to disconnect the ribbon cable from the board, leave off for a minute, power up and see if code returns or not.  Dumb question, do I power up with ribbon cable disconnected?  If repair is needed, I can send to CGIndustries in Illinois, once I figure out it's the ERC.  Thanks again.

Mike

Yes powder it up with the ribbon disconnect and see if the code comes up,if so then the control board is defective ,if not ,then the touch pad is defective and also you may get another different code telling you there is no communication between the pad and the control that normal post back cdwasher
