Default GE Oven - F3 after replacing oven temp sensor
Model Number: JTP15BW   Brand: GE   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


This is a GE Profile built in electric oven (approx. year 1998). When oven is set to Bake at 350, it comes up to set temperature, maintains it for about 1/2 hour, then F3 error code. Replaced oven temp sensor unit. Still receiving F3 under same conditions. I think next step is to replace the oven control (ERC). Mfg. part # is WB27K5273, now referenced to new part # WB27T10265. Your item # is AP3141629 (oven control).

QUESTIONS: Is the oven control part the next step to try? The configuration of the part is different than the original, so it will probably require some custom wiring. Does the part come with a wiring diagram/instructions? If so, could I get a copy of this before I purchase the part? Thanks.

Do not rush with replacement of the control board. The first thing I would do is remove the oven from the cabinet, remove the back cover and check the wire harness from the the oven sensor to the control board. Eliminate the old sensor connection to the wire harness and reconnect it, using a high temperature porcelain wire nuts.

- The part number for the high temperature porcelain wire nuts is AP3440522

Default Fixed - replaced control panel

Gene, thanks for the prompt reply. Since I thought the wiring of the new control panel would be difficult (because the replacement part differed from the original), I had an appliance repairman come out. He tested all connections and they were good. He replaced the control panel and that fixed the problem. I also benefited from a new control panel because one of the numeric digits on the clock had gone bad. The repairman said the control panel wiring was fairly straight forward and I probably could have done it. Well, his overall price for parts/service was very favorable in comparison to any other "authorized service" repair I have had in the past, so we're happy with the final outcome. Once again, thanks for taking the time to answer my post.

I have similar symptoms. However, no error code appears (it use to) and I have a permanent blinking "locked door" message. I would like to try to fix this myself as it is the third time in the last 5 years this has happened. We had a ge appliance repairman replace the controller twice. But it was very expensive. I, too, would like to know if it is apparent how to (re)wire the new controller before I buy it. Any other advice would be greatly appreciated as well.

Hi Bill,

Most likely the problem is a bad door lock, but I would recommend to order the electronic control kit because the new door lock included in this kit and price for the kit is much less than price for the clock motor, if you buy it separate.

This kit comes with the complete installation instructions and we can help you with any questions.

- The part number for the oven control kit is AP3141629

Here are the break down diagrams for the GE oven Model JTP15WW1WW

Default Same problem - different model

We have replaced the sensor and are still getting the error messages. F5 then F3.

The model # JRS04B0W2BB.

What do we try next?

I would recommend to replace the control board next. F3 & F5 error codes are absolutely not connected between each other and that makes the control board the first failure suspect.

- The part number for the control board is AP3189149

Here are the break down diagrams for the GE oven Model JRS04BW2BB

GE oven F3 error is on a distinguished road
Default Some info on repair of F3 error

After measuring the resistance of the oven temp sensor at 1083 ohms, I moved on to checking the ERC (control board).

I found the male pin header connector--that connects to the temp sensor to the ECR--was wiggling and loose. After labeling all the wires to their respective locations, I was able to remove the ECR from the oven, carefully open the electronic assembly, and re-solder the header pins to the PCB.

Seems that the wires from the temp sensor to the header are somewhat short and opening the panel caused the solder joints on the header to break and become intermittent.

Thought I would pass along this fix as previous posts had helped me locate and repair the problem. Thanks to all for your help!

After reading the previous post I also traced my F3 code to a bad solder joint on the temperature sensor male pin header. Thanks for the lead!
