Morganton, GeorgiaGE ProfileF1Not certain part #wb36k5065 (Clock Oven Control; i.e. board in back) has also failed but think that it should be replaced/repaired just in 'case' and if so, would save time to have both parts sent at the same time.

I've been searching for over two days and am grateful that I finally found YOU!!!

Woodbury, New YorkGeneral ElectricJKP27W P1WGnoneMy oven is a double wall oven. The top oven has electronic controls. The oven goes on, beeps when preheated, but then beeps and turns itself off. I can turn it back on and it will stay on for a short while and then beep and turn itself off. But, I been been able to use the self clean function and it works perfectly. The bottom oven has manual knobs and it works perfectly too. I hope that I have the part back & my oven working by Thanksgiving! Thank you.Timer inspected, no repairs necessary

San Jose, CaliforniaGeneral ElectricJKP13GPN/AThis is a revision of the request that I submitted last night (01-22-2010) with new information and a request for clarification of my options if timer cannot be fixed.

Model no. on cover of manual: JKP13GP
Model no. on inside edge of oven door: JKP13G0P2BG
Serial no. LH6376010
Part no. on GE's web site: WB27K5040 (#16 in diagram)

Timer / oven control has been flaky in the past -- but turning it off and letting oven cool always resolved the issue, usually a F1 alert.

Not this time.

Oven won't turn on or stay on. Pressing the Bake or Broiler button on touch pad makes the digital time display flash the time unevenly. Turning on and off power at breaker did no good. I left the breaker off all night. When I turned it on this morning, controller flashed and beeped F1; it stopped after I repeatedly pressed Cancel button. Once beeping stopped, I pressed Bake and Broiler button with same result: Digital time display flashes the time unevenly, and oven doesn't turn on.

If my unit cannot be fixed, can I purchase a timer from your inventory? If so and if you send me a timer from your inventory, then there's no need to return my not-fixable timer. If you don't have a timer to sell me from your inventory, then please return mine.

Can you help us, Doctor?

Kind regards,
Paul

Oklahoma City, OklahomaGeneral ElectricJKP13GOP23GF! when cleaning. OtOven no longer heats up to desired temperature. It gets to about 180 - 200 degrees and goes no further. In fact, the temperature on the control read out seems to stay there, but with a thermometer on the inside of the oven, it actually cools off back to room temperature. The cleaning cycle fails with an F1 code.Awaiting receipt of timer

Landenberg, PennsylvaniaGeneral ElectricJKP13GOP1BG??The oven controls at a temperature that is approximately 150 degrees lower than the set temperature. The clean and broil functions seem to work OK. I have an independent temperature gage in the oven so I am sure that the oven temperature is significantly lower than the set temperature. When starting the oven from room temperature with a setting of 350 for example, the oven quickly increases to the set temperature which is also abnormal.Repaired

hattiesburg, MississippiGeneral ElectricJKP13GOP2BGNO CODEVery similar to the problems listed on your website. When set to bake, not faults are given, but, I hear the click, but, the elements never are turned on. I'm an electrician, and best I can tell all other devices are fine, all power is available, etc. I did see a resistor on the panel (R6) that looked damaged. I could not get an ohm reading on it. I damaged it further trying to turn it a little to see the colors. I know it needs replacing.Repaired

Richboro, PennsylvaniaGeneral ElectricJKP13GOV1BB Wall OvenF3 , F1 but not sureThe oven would only get to a certain temperature , say 250~ then beeper would sound and it would stop warming up. There were error messages sometimes. Could never get to 350 -450. We could turn it off and wait for a awhile and then restart and sometimes it would go for a while longer and get warmer but over time it got worse and worse and is just not usable. So elements work but oven temp shuts off and beeps. We had a repair person out and they said the control board needed replacement but the part is no longer available.Repaired
