Failed Control Panel causing F1 or F7 on GE JKP27, JTP27, BJTP2 Built-In Ovens

Are you having trouble finding a keypad for your General Electric JKP27, JTP27, BJTP27  built in oven? Don’t worry, there are options to restore critical oven functions. For $299 you can have all the functionality restored with a wireless tablet. This page discusses an option that will keep you from having to replacing an oven which can cost thousands of dollars. A simple keypad replacement can turn into a headache due to an ‘no longer available’ (NLA) or obsolete touchpad. Most parts for GE ovens are available for a very long time but the touch pad seems to be an exception to this. This control panel is made of a sealed membrane switch that wears out over time. Once this part fails, the oven can become unresponsive, beep randomly or throw error codes like F1 and F7 codes.  Simple, use a wireless tablet:

Dead GE double oven? Transformer or Controller? Troubleshooting Guide

This guide will help you identify what problems you may have in the power supply to the electronics in your GE double oven.  Some symptoms you may be experiencing include, but are not limited to:
  • Blank display or no beeping
  • F1 error code
  • Oven seems dead

Generally, these are signs of a failed controller, but sometimes blank display or dead oven are simply the result of a failed transformer.  I say “simply” because it is much less expensive and much easier to replace/fix the transformer than it is the controller.  The objective of this post is to help you figure out which is the faulty part so you can send the right one to www.FixYourBoard.com to be repaired.

You’ll need an AC voltmeter as well as a basic tool set handy (pretty much just the right sized screwdriver).

The first thing to do is cut the breaker to your oven before you start taking it apart – we don’t want anybody getting killed by high voltage.

Next, you’ll need to expose your controller.  Refer to this post for help if you don’t know how to access the control unit.  There is no need to disconnect anything – that could actually make your measurements useless.  Once it’s exposed, make sure you can comfortably touch the various wiring harnesses with the voltmeter probes.  If it’s going to be a struggle, you may want to demount the unit from the panel to get some more slack.

Now, turn the breaker back on.  You’ll need to be very careful from here on.  Even though the controller is mostly a low voltage device, there are still points of high voltage on the relay board, and you can still cause electrical damage if you probe the wrong places.  Wall power goes into a transformer somewhere off the control module, and the transformer steps the wall power down to low voltage and routes that to the control board.  The low voltage comes into the board at the white wiring connector labeled J1.  It’s near the black connector receiving the clear, thin ribbon cable from the keypad (see photo).

The transformer sends two separate low voltages to the control board, 21.5 VAC and 4.6 VAC.  These voltages are approximate: as long is you’re in the ballpark, you should be good.  Also, it’s important to note that there are many variations of this control module.  Yours may look a bit different from the one depicted below, but you should still be getting the same supply from the transformer.  The photo shows a unit with all the wiring detached – yours should have a wiring harness occupying the J1 connector, but you should be able to stick the voltmeter probes along the wires into the sockets of the harness to take measurements.  If not, cut the breaker, disconnect the harness from J1 connector, turn the breaker back on, and probe the bottom side of the harness.  You should measure voltages according the photo.  Note that the empty slot is referred to as pins 3.

GE double oven electronic control board

Probes on pins 1 and 2 is one measurement. Probes on pins 4 and 5 is a separate measurement. The empty slot is referred to as Pin 3.

If you measure the proper voltages, then you know the transformer is not the issue.  Make sure the wiring harness is well connected, clean, and making good contact.  If you’re still having problems as described at the beginning, then the controller is the problem, and you should send it to FixYourBoard.com for repair.

If you aren’t reading these voltages, then you either have a bad transformer, or bad wiring.  Cut the breaker, and follow the wires back to the transformer.  These four wires come out of the secondary side of the transformer.  There should be another two wires going into the other side of the transformer, the primary side.  With the breaker on, you should measure 120VAC going into the primary.  I shouldn’t need to tell you how DANGEROUS 120VAC is.  If you measure 120VAC at the primary, check to see if you get 21.5 and 4.6 right at the secondary.  If not for either one, then the transformer is definitely bad and you should contact FixYourBoard.com for repair.  If you have these voltages right at the transformer, but not at the board, then the wiring has broken down somewhere between and needs to be fixed.  If you’re not getting 120VAC into the transformer primary, then you have a serious electrical wiring problem in your wall which should be addressed by a professional (e.g. electrician).

I hope you found this guide helpful! Remember you can always email info@fixyourboard.com with questions.

Door Lock Problem and Overheating on GE Double Oven – JKP and ZEK series ovens

So you had your oven controller rebuilt at www.FixYourBoard.com and  just put your oven back together.  Everything seems to work except there are some strange symptoms.

Depending on what you have tried, the symptoms could be one or all of the following:

  • Door lock motors run continuously in clean mode.
  • Oven is hotter than the set temperature
  • F2 error (means oven is over heated)
  • Oven temperature readout stays at 100 degrees even though oven may be very hot.

This applies to the following:

  • Control boards (ERC) :WB27K5209,WB27K5213, WB27K5211, WB27K5210, WB27K5119, WB27K5208, WB27K5120, WB27K5048, WB27K5047
  • Model series: 3634842 9114842 JKP44GP JKP44GT JKP44GV JKP45WP JKP45WT JKP45WV JKP54GP JKP54GT JKP54GV JKP55WP JKP55WT JKP55WV JKP56AS JKP56AT JKP56AV ZEK754G ZEK755W ZEK756G ZEK757W

How can this be?  FixYourBoard.com has a two year warranty and performs a full functional test before return shipping.

Answer: A very simple and common hookup problem is the culprit.  Luckily, this should cause no damage and is easy to correct.

The following picture illustrates how the controller should be hooked up.  If you are reading this, it is probably because you have seen one or more of the symptoms and should verify your connections.   There is a good chance that the lower oven harness is connected to J4 and the upper oven harness is connected to J3.  Swap those connections and you should be working like new!

GE Double Built-in Oven – Install Problem After Rebuild. F2 Error and Oven Stays at 100 degrees

So you just got your GE control board refurbished from www.FixYourBoard.com and the controller appears to be doing strange things.  How can this be?  They have a 100% functional test for every outgoing board they rebuild.  Well, there is a good change that there may be an installation wiring problem.  This page describes a common hook up problem that fortunately is easy to correct and causes no permanent damage.  A partial list of model series that this applies to is: 3634842 9114842 JKP44GP JKP44GT JKP44GV JKP45WP JKP45WT JKP45WV JKP54GP JKP54GT JKP54GV JKP55WP JKP55WT JKP55WV JKP56AS JKP56AT JKP56AV ZEK754G ZEK755W ZEK756G ZEK757W.

The solution applies to most built in GE ovens, but the wire coloring may be different for some models.  Make sure you check your wiring diagram that is specific to your model number.

Symptom: F2 errors, oven display stays at 100 degrees, uneven cooking.

Description:  You turn on the upper oven and set the temperature.  The left orange numbers on the display light up and show the set temperature.  After about a minute the left temperature shows 100 degrees and stays there.  You check the upper oven, but it is not getting hot.  The lower oven starts to warm up.  If you set the lower oven, the exact opposite scenario exists.

Cause:

When the upper oven is set, the control board turns on power to the elements and measures the temperature in the upper oven.  The problem is that if the orange wire is connected to DLB2 instead of DLB1  and the yellow is connected to BA2 instead of BA1, the lower oven will begin to heat instead of the upper oven.  In short, the wiring is wrong and needs to match the wiring diagram.  Here is an example that covers most built-in GE ovens:

Upper Bake(BA1) – Yellow                        Lower Bake(BA2) – Yellow/White

Upper Broil(BR1) – Violet                          Lower Broil(BR2) – Violet/White

Upper DLB(DLB1) – Orange                     Lower DLB(DLB2) – Orange/White

You Don’t Have to Scrap Your Oven Just Because the Low Voltage Transformer is Obsolete

We get calls from owners of expensive ovens in search of a transformer equivalent to replace a failed, no-longer-available low voltage oven transformer. These transformers sometimes fail due to a power surge, a lightning storm induced transient, self clean cycle or an over temperature condition.

The problem is that there are typically multiple output voltage windings on these devices which makes it difficult to cross to an off-the-shelf part. Nobody wants to scrap out an entire oven just because the low voltage transformer has failed and supply of a new replacement has been discontinued by the manufacturer.

In response to this need, we have developed a method to test and, when possible, repair these devices. In most cases we have found that the transformer can be reliably and safely repaired.

If your oven transformer has failed consider sending it to us at FixYourBoard for repair. Don’t scrap your oven without considering this cost effective, environmentally responsible alternative!

Some example part numbers are: 205C2191P002 WB20K5008 WB20K5063 WB20X10005 which are used in a variety of GE ovens similar to these models: JCTP16 JKP17 JKP18 JKP44 JKP45 JKP55 JKP54 JKP56 JTP16 JTP17 JTP18 JTP44 JTP45 JTP55 JTP56 ZEK734 ZEK736 ZEK737 ZEK754 ZEK755 ZEK756 ZEK757 and many others.
