I have a GE double wall oven (model J KP40C) with a faulty

Resolved Question:

I have a GE double wall oven (model J KP40C) with a faulty program select control panel that does not respond to button or timing dial any more, and only blinks the time. I have tried to locate a replacement control unit online but have not been successful in finding it.   The control is on the left hand side on the top. Can you guide me to the right part or give advice on the fix? I understand that there was a GE recall of some wall units for control panel problems, and would also like to know if this model was affected.   It was installed sometime around 1995, I think.   Thank you,

Thank you, A1Speedy,

I am reading it off of the model number badge inside of the door, and have now used a highlighter to see the stamped letters better:

Model # XXXXX KP 40G o K4WC

Serial # XXXXX 609604 G

The display just blinks, so I don't know if there is a way to reset it, or if it is more likely a damaged control unit. I am comfortable replacing it if I can find the part, unless you know of a neat trick to reset it!

thanks

ok thats better but I have some bad news for you if this diagram is your oven the clock is no longer available, I can check some of my warehouses and see if I can find one for you but cant promise . if I find one i will come back on and let you know , click here for diagrams, http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php thanks Bryan

Okay, thanks for the quick response, Brian, and I look forward to some good news. I tried the circuit breakers to see if it resets. the program switch rotates through the different modes, but the clock control dial doesn't adjust the time. the stove works fine in all of the other controls.

I was hoping this would take one of the replacement they make for some older units theres some rewiring involved but they don't even have one for yours. I wish i had better news. best wishes and thank you for the accept and bonus I just wish I could have come through for you. thanks again Bryan
