Range - Oven Error, Fault or Function Codes

In the event that the electronic control displays a fault code, a trained Service Technician should be called to diagnose and correct the issue. A summary of the fault codes and their meanings are listed below:

Before Calling Service, you can try the following...

Sometimes shutting off the circuit breaker that the range or oven is connected to for 30 seconds will clear the fault, error or function code, however there are some cases when further service may be required. If you would like to schedule a service appointment, please contact GE Consumer Service at 1-800-432-2737 or schedule a service appointment on-line.

GE does recommend turning the range or oven off at the breaker until you have it serviced. It is okay to cycle the breaker and turn the range back on long enough to use the surface units. Be sure to turn the range or oven off at the breaker again when you have finished.
