20 Most Recent GE JKP30WMWW 27" Built-in Single Electric Wall Oven with Dual Element Bake & Electronic Oven Control... Questions & Answers

Just guessing but did you just use the clean cycle???? During clean, the oven temp gets high enough to trip the door lock safety thermostat. This is to keep owners from trying to open the door when oven is too hot from clean cycle. It sounds like that safety didn't reset to normal when it cooled off and therefore the door is still locked. With door locked you may need to get oven out of the wall and remove top cover to get to the lock system and thermostats. Make sure power is off before doing any of this.

Hi Nancy,
180 degrees Celcius is about 360 degrees Fahrenheit.

180 degrees c is equal to 350 degrees f (356 to be precise)

Here is some wisdom for understanding F1 fault codes.

In some models, there are subcodes that make diagnosis even easier.

Here's a simple explanation of what's going on and how to troubleshoot:

The F1 code indicates that:

a. The electronic range control (ERC) is sensing heat in the oven when in a time-of-day (i.e., not cooking) mode.

b. The ERC is receiving information to run multiple heat functions simultaneously.

Although different components (depending upon the model) could generate the code, simple and straightforward testing using your ohm meter is all you gotta do to test for it.

1. Check the oven temperature sensor. The oven sensor has to be within spec or it will cause the F1 code.
As an example of being out-of-spec, the ERC will generate an F1 fault code when the sensor shows 1650 ohms during a time-of-day mode.
This is equivalent to 350°F in the oven.
The resistance isn't high enough to generate an F2 code (runaway temp) or an F3 or F4 code (shorted/open sensor circuit).
The ERC monitors the sensor circuit after a heat cycle and expects the resistance to drop back to 1050-1100 ohms.
The fault code is generated when this doesn't happen. Checking the sensor circuit means also checking the harness,
harness connections and the sensor itself.

2. If the oven sensor circuit checks okay, then turn your inquisitive eyeballs to the touchpad.
If the range has a separate touchpad/keyboard, the keypad may have moisture that is shorting several circuits simultaneously.
If the F1 code is given immediately (instead of during or after a heat cycle),
remove the ribbon connector from the touchpad to the ERC after clearing the F1 code. If the F1 code does not return in five minutes,
then cast a suspicious gaze upon the touchpad/keyboard. Shorts may be caused by using an ammonia-based glass cleaner.
The touchpad surface will absorb ammonia-based cleaners that are sprayed directly on the glass surface. When heat is applied,
the surface material can break down causing shorts.
If you're gonna use ammonia-based cleaners on your control panel, then you should spray it on the rag and then wipe the touchpanel
-don't spray directly onto the surface of the touchpad.

3. On Amana ranges with a rotary temperature dial, be sure that the knob is in the OFF position when performing tests.

4. If these tests all check good, then replace the ERC.

GE is now fixing this problem, no charge. I called about mine, at 866-622-6184 They have the white version already available. A month wait on the black. Then they send out a service tech to install, free to you.

Hi, Will forgo all the greetings. F7 is a stuck or shorted keypad. Try rapidly running / fanning your finger FLAT across the keypad to un-stick it. If this does not correct the problem you may be faced with either a keypad replacement or an electronic range control replacement.

Disconnect the power supply for few minutes, say 15 minutes and then turn it ON. If the problem still persists, then it is highly suggestive of faulty control board. You could try to clean the ribbons/connectors to the control board and see, if that helps.Unless the only solution seems to be replacement of control board.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

my kenmore model number 911-47699100 oven doesn't work. Everything except the oven and broil works--cleaning, all timers, start button, etc. All that happens when you push start is about every 30 seconds, two relays can be heard making and breaking kind of like a click then immediately a clack. No error codes appear. Replaced sensor but that didn't work. Any help would be appreciated.

same problem. bubbled after 8 mths. replaced by GE. then bubbled again after 7 mths. GE refused to replace again, said warranty was only one year and did not include parts replaced under warranty. obviously a defective part. i'm not buying GE anymore. Good luck.

The igniter is in 'series' with the gas coil that operates the gas valve. The gas coil is probably bad. You can replace the coil not the whole valve. Go to repair clinic.com and put in the model number and they will have it.

F7 error code occures due to
A = Function pad button stuck or 
B = Bad clock Unstick button or
Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC)

Replace the ERC there are ten screws 3 on each side and 4 on the control leave the hex screws alone all you need is a phillip screwdriver.
REMEMBER TO SHUT OFF THE POWER FIRST lift and fold out the control panel remove the ribbon cable and remove the four screws that hold the control board . replace control panel in reverse order.
Good Luck!!
