General Electric's (GE) modern wall ovens are not only capable of cooking dinner and cleaning themselves, but they can also tell the user when something has gone wrong via the use of preprogrammed error codes. If you see any type of error code displayed on your oven, you should immediately press the "Clear/Off" button on the touchpad, and let your oven cool off for approximately one hour before restoring operation to your oven. If the error code remains, disconnect the oven's power and contact a qualified service professional.

F0 or F1 Errors

An error code of "F0" or "F1" typically results from a faulty touchpad or oven control board. One or even both of these devices may need replacing.

F2 Error

An error code of "F2" during the "Bake" process means your oven control is recording a temperature above 332 degrees Celsius. You may need to have your oven control board or the oven temperature sensor replaced. If an error code of "F2" happens during the "Clean" process, the temperatures have exceeded 499 degrees Celsius. If the oven's lock switches are fully operational, this is probably due to a faulty oven control mechanism or temperature sensor.

F3 or F4 Errors

An error code of "F3" or "F4" typically means the oven has an open or short circuit within the temperature sensor. If the wiring is good, the entire temperature sensor will need replacing.

F5 Error

The "F5" error code indicates a faulty relay drive circuit. The oven control board requires replacement.

F8 Error

The "F8" error code signifies a problem with the oven's meat probe, usually with the probe's circuit, the receptacle or within the probe itself. Ensure there are no pinched or damaged wires and that the receptacle is clear of any condensation or debris.

F9 Error

An error code of "F9" signifies a lock switch error, which typically means the lock switch is stuck in one position, though there may also be a problem with the mechanism's wiring or wire harness.

FC Error

The "FC" error code indicates a problem within the circuit of the door lock. Examine the lock mechanism to ensure there are no pinched or damaged wires causing this error.

FD Error

An error code of "FD" is essentially the same error code as "F8," which signals some kind of problem with the meat probe. The problem may be with the actual meat probe, within the circuit or within the receptacle.

FF Error

An error code of "FF" signifies a fault safety switch within the door motor. The oven control mechanism needs replacing.

FFF Error

The "FFF" error code indicates a faulty EEPROM or an error with the oven control mechanism. The oven control board needs replacement.
