Temperature Control Problems and F2,F3,F1 error codes with Whirlpool Series RB160 RB170 RS675 Built-In Ovens

If your oven has a controller that looks like this and has erratic temperature control issues, it is very likely a problem with the controller.  At www.FixYourBoard.com we commonly get questions regarding these controllers.

The electronic controllers can be referred to as any of the following: 3169255, 3169256, 3169257, 3169258,  3169259,  3182391, 3182392, 3184943

 

When the  temperature is erratic and the oven frequently has trouble reaching temperature, even an experienced tech may have difficulty troubleshooting.  It is difficult to nail down because once the temperature control circuit begins to fail, you will see heating elements not coming on or staying on too long at random times.  This can also lead to F1,F2 or F3 errors.  The good news is that any of these controllers can be rebuild quickly and reliably with a  success rate that is over 95%.

Whirlpool Double Oven (Gold, GBD, RBD series) not heating? Could be an open thermal fuse.

Hello!

Today’s article will help you figure out why the bake/broil elements in your oven(s) aren’t heating up, even though the control panel seems to be operating perfectly.  In fact, you may even have recently received a refurbished/repaired control unit from www.FixYourBoard.com, but the oven still won’t heat up.  Fear no longer – this blog will get you on the right track in no time.

This guide is for troubleshooting Whirlpool double ovens – please refer to the list of relevant part and model numbers at the bottom of this blog to ensure you are in the right place.

First off, does your control panel seem to be functional? If the display isn’t illuminated, and there are no beeps when you press buttons, but you’re positive you’ve properly hooked up the control board and have the breaker on, then you may have an issue with the power supply to the control board.  Please refer to this guide for troubleshooting the power supply.

So everything seems to be properly connected.   You set the oven to bake, the display shows that the heat is on (the door needs to be closed), but the oven elements aren’t heating up at all, and the control is not throwing any error codes.  This is almost certainly being cause by an open “oven shutdown thermal fuse”.  There is one of these fuses for both the lower oven and the upper oven, each.  Hopefully, you’re only having this problem in one of the two, but it wouldn’t be too surprising if both thermal fuses went out, and it’s not hard to replace them.   Now, if the elements do heat up, even if it’s just a little bit, then the problem is either with the oven (temperature) sensor or the oven control board – please refer to this blog for troubleshooting that issue.

 

CUT THE BREAKER!!! These next steps involve measuring circuit elements that run at HIGH VOLTAGE WHICH CAN KILL YOU when the breaker is on.

You’ll want to have a DMM or DVM (Digital Multi/Voltage Meter) that can measure electrical resistance.  There is a large variety of inexpensive meters available.  Below are two different kinds of meters – both are set to check for electrical resistance of up to 200 ohms (Ω).  Set your meter to the 200 Ω scale, and make sure the probes are connected to the common (black) and voltage (red) ports.

Typical Digital Multi-Meter (DMM) set to the 200 Ω scale.

Typical Digital Multi-Meter (DMM) set to the 200 Ω scale.

First, let’s make sure the actual heating elements are not the problem.  You need to have the control board exposed, but still hooked up to the oven, and THE BREAKER SHOULD BE OFF. Near the element relays are the wiring tabs where the heating elements connect to the control board.  The upper oven elements are fed by the set of tabs labeled P18.  There should be two black wires on the two center tabs, and a red wire and an orange wire which connect to the outside tabs.  Stick your probes into the sockets where the orange and red wires connect to the board – you should be in the ballpark of 50 Ω.  The lower oven is fed by the other set of tabs, labeled P26.  Here, we want to stick the probes into the sockets occupied by the red (outside) and orange (center) wires – should also be around 50 Ω.   If these measurements check out, skip the rest of this paragraph.  If either one of these measurements are significantly far from 50 Ω (e.g. <35 Ω or >65 Ω) , or especially if the meter over-ranges (usually meters display a “1” on the far right of the screen when they over-range), then you need to individually inspect the element(s) in question.  Oven models are unique so I can’t give specific information on how to extract the heating elements from the oven cavity – you may want to have a technician do this with you – but it’s usually just a matter of removing some mounting screws, and you may have to get behind the oven to disconnect the wiring.  The heating elements are essentially long metal rods bent into a radiator-like shape (they’re basically radiators, after all).  The resistance from end-to-end of a broil (top) element should be about 20 Ω, and it should be about 30 Ω for a bake (bottom) element.  If any of these elements fail to meet approximate spec, they should probably be replaced – contact a technician.  If the elements are fine, but the measurements on the control board were bad, then it’s a wiring/connection issue.

So the elements aren’t the problem, but the thermal fuses could still definitely be bad – let’s see.  For these ovens, there are two different styles of control boards, which we’ll refer to as 2319 and 2697.  The easy way to tell which one you have is by looking at the right side of the back of the board: if it has two DLB (Double Line Break; photos below) relays, then it is a 2319, otherwise it’s a 2967.  Go to the appropriate paragraph.

Whirlpool Double Oven Control Board 8302967 – no DLB relays.

Whirlpool Double Oven Control Board 8302319 – has DLB relays.

Often, Whirlpool Control Board 8302319 is in a Plastic Case.

Troubleshooting 2319

Your board has the DLB relays.   Let’s check the upper oven thermal fuse first.  The upper oven DLB relay should have two solid red wires connected to it, and we need to figure out which one to use for the fuse test.  First, with your meter set to the 200 Ω scale, hold a probe to each of the contacts for the red wires – it should over-range, meaning that it is an open circuit (if your meter registers any resistance within the 200 Ω scale, then the relay is stuck and you need to send the board to www.FixYourBoard.com to be repaired).  Now, look at the other (lower oven) DLB relay.  This one should have one solid red wire, and one red wire with a white stripe.  The solid red wire on the lower oven DLB relay should be in closed circuit to one of the solid red wires on the upper oven DLB relay, and it should be open circuit to the other solid red wire.  Use your meter to find out which one – the meter should register a value (somewhere around 20-30 Ω) for the closed circuit, and it should over-range for the open circuit.  We want to use the solid red wire on the upper oven DLB that is open circuit to the solid red wire on the lower oven DLB.  Hold one of the probes to the contact for that solid red wire, and stick the other probe into either the orange or red wire socket connected to the P18 tabs.  This should be a closed circuit.  If it is an open circuit, the upper oven thermal fuse is open and needs to be replaced – take a note of that for now.

Now let’s look at the lower oven thermal fuse.  Hold one of your probes to the contact for the red wire with a white stripe that connects to the lower oven DLB relay.  Stick the other probe into the orange wire socket connected to the P26 tabs.  This should be a closed circuit.  If it is an open circuit, the upper oven thermal fuse is open and needs to be replaced.  Skip the 2967 troubleshooting paragraph to see about replacing these fuses.

Troubleshooting 2967

Your board does not have the DLB relays.  With your meter set to the 200 Ω scale, stick one of the probes into the socket for either the red or the orange wire that connects to the P18 tabs on the board.  Stick the other probe into the socket for the orange wire that connects to the P26 tabs.  In normal conditions, this should be a closed circuit – the meter should read a value around 40-60 Ω.  If the meter over-ranges, then either one or both of the thermal fuses are open.

Bad Thermal Fuse

The meter has told us one or both of the thermal fuses are bad.  These are mounted on the rear panel(s) of the oven(s), so you’re going to have to pull the double oven out from the kitchen wall to access them.  Open up the rear panel(s) of the oven(s) (some hardware will probably required), and you should find the thermal fuses mounted on the panel.  A red wire and an orange wire should be connected to one side of the fuse, while just one red wire is connected to the other side of the fuse.  This will be true of both the upper and lower thermal fuses, with one exception: if your oven is not self-cleaning, the lower thermal fuse will only have one orange wire on one side and one red wire on the other.  Disconnect the wiring and unmount the suspect fuse(s).  Use your meter to verify that the fuse(s) is/are open – holding one probe to each of the contacts should result in over-ranging in the 200 Ω scale if the fuse is open.  Contact a local appliance parts supplier or a site like www.RepairClinic.com to find the necessary replacement according to the part number and/or color markings on the fuse…

Jenn-Air ACB, JEW, JJW, MEW, SCE, SVD, and WW Series Built-In Ovens can’t keep time and can’t be calibrated? Solution is here.

We’ve seen a number of Jenn-Air ovens (relevant model/part numbers and photos of typical boards below) here at FixYourBoard.com with the same recurring problem…

The oven control seems unable to consistently keep the time (e.g. the display is often encountered flashing “12:00”), and the user calibration for the oven temperature is not saved after being set.

To set temperature calibration follow these steps:

  • Press “Bake” (upper bake will calibrate the upper oven, and lower bake will calibrate the lower oven)
  • Enter in “500” degrees
  • Hold down “Bake” again (the same bake as pressed at the start)
  • This should enter the calibration menu.  A number ranging from -35 to +35 (by increments of 5) should be displayed.  The default is “0”.
  • Press “Broil” to toggle between positive and negative ranges and then key in the desired offset (can only be from -35 to +35 by increments of 5).
  • Ex) a +20 degree offset will cause the oven controller to display “330” for an oven cavity that is actually 350 degrees.  Similarly, a -25 degree offset will cause the controller to display “425” for a cavity that is actually 400 degrees.
  • Press “Clear/Cancel” or just idle for a few seconds and the offset will be stored and the display will return to showing the clock.  So if you were to re-enter the calibration menu, it should show whatever number you just keyed in.

The control failure being addressed in this post is when you re-enter the calibration menu and it reads “0” or is blank instead of being stored at the desired offset.

Well we’ve discovered what’s causing this problem and know how to fix it.  Furthermore, we will refurbish the entire board, quickly and reliably, replacing all the components prone to failure and back it up with a two year warranty.  And the best part is that this repair is a fraction of the cost of buying a new controller, or worse yet, a new oven.  So send your malfunctioning controller in to FixYourBoard.com and we’ll get it back up and running like new in no time!

Whirlpool RM278, RM288 series with common failures (Blanking display, F1, F2 and F3 errors, random resetting and beeping)

3148270, 3148271, 3148272, 3148273, 3148274, 3148275 are common control boards that have been showing up at www.FixYourBoard.com.   They fit into the following model numbers:  RM288PXS0, RM288PXV4, RM288PXV5,  RM288PXV6,  RM288PXV7,  RM278BXS0,  RM278BXV0,  RM278BXV2,  RM278BXV4,  RM278BXV5, RM278BXV6 ,RM278BXV7.  There are slight variations in color and functionality, but they are similar to the following:

The common failures are blanking display, random clock resets, F1, F2, F2 errors, and beeping/chirping noises.    No worries, all these symptoms can be repaired.  There is no reason to buy new as the warranty on refurbished timers is longer that a new.  Contact www.fixyourboard.com for more information.

Whirlpool oven is dead – no display, no beeping. Does the control board need to be repaired?

Young Padawan, here, with another guide from FixYourBoard.com.  We’ve been witnessing some confusion people are having in diagnosing their power supplies for Whirlpool ovens, and whether or not they should send the board in to FixYourBoard.com for repair.  Hopefully this will help clear that up!

To make a good diagnosis, you’ll need to have a voltmeter that can measure AC voltages up to over 120 V.  And please exercise caution when making these measurements – you could shock yourself with high voltage which can kill you! If you’ve cut the breaker to your oven, you’ll need to throw it back on.

Before we begin, there are three quick-checks that ensure you have power getting to your board properly:

1) If the control board makes any kind of beep, then you know your power supply is good.

2) If the display is in anyway illuminated, then your power supply is good.

3) For the third quick-check, stick your voltmeter probes into slots 2 and 3 of the wiring harness that attaches to connector P16 (there should be two blue wires coming into these same slots; see second photo below).  Make sure your probes are making contact with metal – either uninsulated portion of the wire or connector pins inside the harness.  You should measure 24 V AC here.  If not, go on with the rest of the guide.

If your board passes any of the quick-checks but you are still experiencing any of the common problems or some kind of malfunction, then you should send it in to FixYourBoard.com for repair.

Without further ado, the full troubleshooting guide.  Power to the oven control board goes through three stages…

STAGE ONE – power into the board?

120 V AC wall power comes into the board through the P24 wiring connector at pins 1 and 3.  Pin 1 is denoted by the small triangular arrow printed on the actual circuit board.  The space for pin 2 is empty, so when I refer to “pin 3”, it’s actually the second physical pin to occur in this connector.  That can certainly be confusing!  L1 (black wire) comes into pin 3, and Neutral (white wire) comes into pin 1 (see photo below).  The incoming power wires attach to this connector by a wiring harness with a corresponding number of slots.

With a voltmeter, you should measure about 120 V AC by sticking one probe in slot 1 and the other probe in slot 3 (make sure the probes are making contact with the metal wire or pin, not just the insulation around the wire).   If so, scroll down to Stage Two.  If you don’t measure any voltage across these slots, you could have an open thermal fuse (see photo above), which is in series with the incoming black L1 wire.  Keep one probe in slot 1 (Neutral) and move the other to the side of the thermal fuse that is coming from the wall (not the side that goes into the board).  You should measure 120 V AC here.  If you do, then you need to replace the thermal fuse.  If you don’t, then you have an electrical wiring issue in your wall and should contact a professional electrician.

STAGE TWO – power to the transformer?

The circuitry in the control board reroutes power to an off-board transformer.  The power is sent to-and-fro the transformer at connector P16 (see photo below).  First, let’s make sure that 120 V is going to the transformer.  L1 comes out at pin 5 and Neutral comes out at pin 7 (both should be red wires).  Hold your probes in these slots and you should measure 120 V AC across them.  If not, then you definitely have a board problem and should send it in to FixYourBoard.com for repair.

If 120 V AC is coming out of the board, then let’s make sure it’s getting to the transformer.  The wires from the transformer (both wires should be blue) connect at pins 2 and 3 on the P16 connector.  *CUT THE BREAKER TO YOUR OVEN* Some model ovens have the transformer more easily located for removal than others, but we need to be safe before going fishing through all these wires for it.  You should be able to find it by following the blue and red wires coming from the P16 connector.  You may need to pull your oven out from the wall.  Once you have a hold of it, place the transformer somewhere where you can probe it while still being connected to the board, but it’s not being shorted to any other metal or wires.

Being positive that the transformer and wiring is all electrically safe (not shorting to anything), throw the breaker back on.  Hold your voltmeter probes to the two small tabs where the red L1 and neutral wires attach (see photo below) – you should measure about 120 V AC.  It’d be unlikely, but if you don’t measure 120 V AC here and you were getting it out of the board at P16 pins 5 and 7, then the wires or their connections are somehow damaged and need to be replaced or re-soldered.  That kind of damage should be visually apparent.

STAGE 3 – stepped-down power back to the board?

The transformer’s job is to reduce (step-down) the high voltage a lower amount that”s easier and safer for the electronics.  Hold your probes to the two larger tabs on the transformer where the blue wires attach (see photo above).  You should measure 24 V AC here.  If not, then you have a bad transformer.  These are still available and relatively inexpensive.  You can do a Google search of your model number or use a website like RepairClinic.com to find the transformer you need.

If you do measure 24 V AC at the tabs, then ensure it’s getting to the board.  Power from the transformer travels through the blue wires back into the board at connector P16 pins 2 and 3.  Stick your probes in the corresponding slots (where the blue wires come in) on the wiring harness that connects to P16 – you should measure 24 V AC. If you do measure 24 V AC coming out at the transformer, but not back into the board at the P16 connector pins 2 and 3, then it’s again some kind of wiring/connection problem that should be visually apparent.

Reminders:

– In making any measurements with your probes, you need to be sure that you are touching conductive material, like exposed portions of the wires or pins.

– Throughout the course of troubleshooting, you’ve had to throw the breaker a couple times.  It needs to be ON (supplying electricity to the oven) when you check voltages on the board/transformer.

– All measured voltages will be approximate to the nominal values listed throughout the guide.

DANGER HIGH VOLTAGE! Enough said.

That concludes the power supply troubleshooting guide.  I hope you found it helpful!

Control Board Front View Control Board Back View

    • E6/F2 Error Code ->   Always a problem with control board

This is the most common symptom and can only be due to the control board. Since the techsheet decodes this to “cancel key line drive open”, many people suspect the keypad is bad. The keypad is not causing an E6/F2. Based on years of experience, E6/F2 is never anything other than the control board….. Send it in.

Whirlpool Oven Panel E6 F2 Error CodeWhirlpool Oven Panel E6 F2 Error Code
    • E1/F5 Error Code ->   Can be control board, door lock or keypad

Wait a minute! The techsheet decodes it to “Self-clean latch will not lock” . How could the keypad cause this? Good question. On models with a manual door lock for the lower oven, the keypad has a special short between pins 1 and 11. This tells the control board not to cycle the door lock on the lower oven because there is no motorized door lock to control. If this short is missing, eventually the control board will flash the E1 error code on the right side of the clock display.
If the E1 is on the left of the clock, it is complaining about the upper oven. In this case, the keypad cannot be responsible. Once you determine the door lock is functioning correctly, the problem is with the control board.

Whirlpool Oven Panel F5_E1 Error Code
    • E1/F2 only ->   Always a problem with the keypad

This code means the board did not detect the keypad. Once again, this is based on years of experience. Never have we seen the control board causing this problem.

    • E0/F3 and E2/F3 ->   Almost always a problem with the control board

If the temp sensor measures approximately 1050 ohms when measured at the white connector on the control board, the problem is likely the control board.

    • Blank Display (With Beeps) ->   Problem is the control board

The beeps at power up, mean the board is getting power. If the display stays off after beeping, there is a problem with the control board

    • Blank Display (No Beeps) ->   If input power is ok, problem is control board

If you are getting approximaely 24V from transformer but the display is blank, the control board is the problem.

We hope this helps you quickly troubleshoot common problems with this Whirlpool series. Remember, if you have a symptom that is puzzling or new, contact us at www.FixYourBoard.com and we can help you figure it out. Thank you for your business!

Whirlpool Gold Oven, GBD and RBD series Electronic Control Board (ECB) Wiring Connector Removal

So you need to send your Whirlpool ECB (specific model and part numbers listed at bottom of this post) to FixYourBoard.com for a quality repair, but you can’t get the blasted thing out the oven because it’s held in by a bunch of wiring connectors.  You don’t want to further damage the board in the removal process, and we don’t want you to either.  Here’s a straight-forward, visually enhanced guide to help take the stress out of your kitchen.

Make sure you have a flat-head screwdriver handy – it makes everything a lot easier.

Click here for instructions on how to access your control module if you need help.

Once you’ve exposed the control module, the first step is to safely detach the ribbon cable.  This is the most fragile part in the whole unit, and if damaged, you’ll have to replace your keypad, which can be costly.  It is essential that you do not crease the ribbon cable – this will break the wires.  Regardless of your model oven, the ribbon cable attaches to the board at the black connector labelled P22.  It is held firmly in place through a slide-in locking mechanism.  To release this mechanism, simultaneously press in the two clips on each end of the connector and then pull up (away from the board).   It might be a little sticky, but shouldn’t require much force.  Now, gently pull the ribbon cable out of the connector, and then out the the housing through the large rectangular gap (if it was coming through the gap).  Again, it is important that some curvature is retained in the ribbon cable – do not fold it too much when pulling it out.

P22 – Ribbon Connector

The second step is to get the actual board out of the black plastic housing module (wires still attached).  Unscrew the housing from the panel first – this will give you some more room to manoeuvre.  Next, let’s slide out the small daughter card on the exterior side.  It’s only held in by one clip on the top edge.  Pull that back so you can slide the card up and out of the housing (wires still attached).

Daughter Card

Now, looking down into the housing, you can see that the board is held in by 6 clips, 3 running the length of each side.  We only need to unclip one side to pull the board out.  I find it easier to focus on the side opposite the P22 ribbon connector.  Notice the semicircular gaps in the housing near the clips.  Let’s start at the corner in between the white connectors P24 and P16.  With one hand, position your flat-head pointing down onto the top of the board, inside the housing, and push the lip of the clip out.  Simultaneously, with your other hand, place your thumb on the bottom side of board where the semicircular gap is and push the board up past the lip.  Repeat this procedure for the middle clip on this side, and then the third clip on the end opposite where we started.  Note that there are no gaps immediately near the middle clip, but you can still use the first gap just as effectively.  Your flat-head will be especially useful for the third clip if your board has the two DLB relays with the sockets on top (as pictured below).

Unclip this side of the board

Start with this clip

Second clip

Third Clip

Once this half of the board has been unclipped, you can free the board from the housing with a little bit of wiggling, sliding the other half out from underneath the clip lips.  With the board free from the housing, removing the wires form the connectors is easy.

If your board has the socketed DLB relays, the attached wires can simply be pulled free.

DLB relay with wires attached

The heating elements’ wiring attaches to the board through the large black female connectors.  These can be pried free with your flat-head inserted between the board  and the connector.  The white connectors can also be pried apart, inserting your flat-head between the male connector mounted on the board, and the female connector attached to the wiring.

Black Connectors to Heating Elements

Separating the white connectors

Now your control board should be completely free from any attachments.  Package it with care (no need to send the daughter card or housing), send it to FixYourBoard.com, and you’ll get it back working just like new in a few days.

I hope you found this guide helpful!

Thermador Oven Control Board 486752 / 14-33-347 – Door Lock Sequence and Errors

Are you having door lock problems with your Thermador control board 486752 or 14-33-347,  487604 or 316080103.   At www.FixYourBoard.com, we get questions about the door lock operation for this controller.  This post addresses this by describing the sequence of events when the controller is programmed for a clean cycle.    We hope this information will help you  troubleshoot door lock issues with the following model numbers: RDDS30, RDDS30QW, RDDS30V, RDDS30VQB, RDDS30VQB, RDDS30VRS, RDDS30VRS, RDFS30, RDF30, RDF30QB, RDF30QW, RDF30RS, RDF30RS, RDSS30, RED30V, RED30VQB, RED30VQRS, RED30VQW, REF30, REF30QB, REF30QW, REF30RS, RES30, RES30QB, RES30RS, RES30W, RDDS30, RDDS30QW, RDDS30, RDDS30V, RDDS30VQB, RDDS30VRS, RDFS30, RDF30, RDF30QB, RDF30QW, RDF30RS, RDSS30, RED30V, RED30VQB, RED30VQRS, RED30VQW, REF30, REF30QB, REF30QW, REF30RS,  RES30,  RES30QB,  RES30RS,  RES30W.

State 1 -Clean Button Pressed and Time Set  (Door still unlocked)

Note that the blue display show that clean mode has been selected and the total time for the clean mode.  The state of the switches is shown in the diagram.  Pins 7 and 8 are shorted together with switch #1.  This is the un-locked state.

Thermador_486752_clean_start1

State 1 -Display As Soon as Clean Time is Programmed

State 2 – Automatic Door Locks are Running (One Second after State 1)

After a second in state 1, the following happens:

  1. The clean light comes on.
  2. Controller turns on the door lock motor.
  3. This state only last until motor releases switch 1 and pins 7 and 8 are no longer connected.

 

Thermador_486752_clean_start2

 

State 3 – Lock Motor Still Spinning and Switch #1 is Not Pressed anymore.

Pins 7, 8 and 9 are not connected and the motor is still spinning.

Note that the display shows the “locked” even though switch #2 is not pressed yet and door is not locked.  

 

Thermador_486752_clean_door_all_pins_open

 

State 4 – Lock Motor has Stopped Spinning Because Switch #2 shorted pin 7 to 9.  Oven has turned on the heating elements.

Note that the display now says “ON”.  This means that switch #2 was pressed by the lock motor which shorted pin 7 to 9.  The oven will now reach cleaning temperature.

 

Thermador_486752_clean_on

 

State 5 – Fault State.  If the controller does not sense the door lock on pins 7 and 9.

In this fault mode, the controller will beep and show door on the screen.

Thermador_486752_clean_door_error

Error State – Control did not receive the locked signal on pins 7 and 9.

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
