GE Covection/Micro/RangeHood Won't Convect
Model Number: JVM1790SK Brand: GE Age: 1 - 5 years
I have an almost 3 year old GE Profile OTR Micro/Convection oven that gets a great deal of convection use.
Last week in the middle of baking I took a pie out to check, put it back in for more time and when I returned 15 minutes later I discovered it was cooler. The oven wasn't heating.
I let the oven cool completely down and tried to heat it up again, no dice. I did some tests and discovered everything else (micro/exhaust fan/clock) was working fine. It's just that the oven doesn't heat.
I had a local repair person check it and he said the following things:
1. The control board needs replacing. (Part WB27X10866)
2. This happens because it's over the stove and the heat from the stove can damage the control board.
3. This could happen again.
4. It will cost me almost $300 for parts and labor.
So my questions:
1. If the micro and everything else works... IS it the control board?
2. It's an OTR appliance! Why would being OTR be a problem!?
3. So I spend $300 and may have to do it again every 3 years?
4. Is this in the reasonable range?
