Wow theres gota be a forum for everything. Well I am one of those jack of all trades and master of none type of guys I have a GE prophile model JB940A0B1AA ( closest thing that comes up is JB940AB1AA which is the same I am guessing ). Anyway I get the F3 error code so I am thinking I need the new sensor. I removed the sensor and put my meter on the sensor side of the plug and it came to the 1 for the ohms when I put it on the other side of the plug I get 8. I did allot of reading here and still can't figure out if that a good or bad thing. Thanks for your help.

Any body know what the ohm readings mean?

The "F3" error code means the oven sensor is open.

An ohmmeter reading for the open circuit should be "∞".

Resistance should be measured across both wires.

The following article on our forum will explain in detail how to run a continuity test using either an analog meter or a digital meter – How to check continuity with Ohmmeter.

- The part number for the oven sensor is AP2023862

Here are the break down diagrams for the GE range Model JB940AB1AA

Well I just replaced the sensor. I unplugged the stove waited a couple minutes plugged it back in and it still doesn't work back to the f3 error any ideas?

Did you check the sensor before you replaced it?

If you did, what was the result?

Wow thanks for the quick responce Gene. Yep I put the info in my first post I got a ohm reading of 1 on the sensor and a reading of 8 on the plug it plugs into.

Unplug the sensor plug from the control board and measure resistance across the sensor terminals at this plug. Post the result.

Ok that one is about 7.5. I cheched the wire from the sensor plug to the control board plug and those wires are good too.

Mako,

Something is wrong. The resistance must be much more then 7.5 Ohms.

As you said the sensor is new and there is nothing wrong with wires.

THERE IS NOTHING ELSE.

How did you check the sensor resistance?

Did you read this article :How to check continuity with Ohmmeter?

Gene.

Yep read the article and set my anolog meter to 0. I put my ohm meter probe in the backside of the sensors plug the old sensor and the new one both read the same 1. I checked the two pins on the board where the probes wires would be pluged into again and it reads 8 now.
