Question GE Double Oven Double F4
Brand: GE   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


* Edit * Oven model is GE JKP44GOP13G

My GE double oven (electric) is beeping and displaying a code F4 whenever I try to use either the top or bottom. Initially the code only came up when I used the bottom, then the problem started with the top.
In order to stop the beeping I had to shut off power to the oven to stop the beeping, that's when I noticed resetting the power got the top working again but eventually resetting did not help.
I thought at first that I had a bad temp sensor, but now with both ovens not working I think this may be a circuit or wiring problem, anyhow I pulled the control panel and didn't see any signs of trouble.
Any suggestions?
Thanks for the help.

MRH,

Unfortunately, you didn't supply a model number for your unit.

We can give you some basic, general information, at this point.

Most control boards will display failure codes, it does not always specify which specific oven has the failure. Some of the newer, more elaborate controls do.

A lot of the control boards, after displaying a fail code for a certain amount of time or displays, will eventually, shut the whole system down, even if there is only one disabled component.

We can be more exact and precise with a proper model and serial number, and can answer your inquiries properly.

Thanks,

MRH,

Well, Let's start with the obvious and easy stuff.

You have a F4 fail code ( oven sensor shorted ).

Do you have a multi meter, so you can check the oven sensor(s) resistance ?

You can remove the sensor from inside the oven cavity, just don't loose the wires.

With a meter, check across the two wires on the sensor for 1100 ohms or less(1084 ohms average) at room temperature.

Boil water (212 degrees), insert sensor into boiling water(don't touch the sides or bottom of the pot) and the resistance should increase to approximately 1350 ohms.

Test both sensors, if there is a more that 50 ohm resistance difference than I've stated, you'll need a new sensor.

From there, if all checks OK,we will have to check the resistance at the control board connections with the sensor(s) re installed, we don't want to have to pull the oven out of the cabinet, if we don't need to.

Thanks for the help, I'll have to borrow or buy a multimeter but I'm glad to hear I don't have to pull the oven out of the wall. I'll post what I find.

MHR,

Here's the part number for the meter I would reccomend

Part number: AP3873826

Part number: AP3873826


It's pretty flexible and could come in handy around the house, car etc.

But if you can borrow, or purchase another meter, even better.

Will be looking for your update, in the near future.
