GE Monogram Oven ZET958SF5SS LOC REF error

6 posts in this topic

Changed out a new control board and the panel buttons are dead and the display reads LOC REF. I put the old board back on and it works fine. Reason for new board is getting an F2 error on the old board but with the old board the buttons functions fine. What is the deal with the new board getting LOC REF.

Shooting from the hip here, Dude.  Is there a Control or Child Lock feature on this unit?

Yes its has it on the panel to hold 9 and 0 down simultaneously but this is not child lock. Tried that. I have read on a couple of post of the same problem. There is some type of parameter setting for the communication between the board and glass touch panels. One I read for another model said hold 6 and 8 down and then the panel will work. I need something definitive before I go back out to try it again. Somebody has to know what this is and how to solve it.

Are you able to enter diagnostic mode on the new board?  If not, then the board is bad out of the box.

Chat In FL...that is what I was looking for. Thank You!. I don't understand why GE does not include these instructions with the new control board.
