Oven purchased 7/24/2010.
BTW, it wouldn't be useful to me to be told that the uP has died since that would mean and expensive service visit from our local KA store. I suspect the uP in the controller died for thermal reasons, the Oven hasn't been used much and we haven't had call to use the temperature sensor.
The controller uses a microprocessor (uP) to effect its control functions.
You bet, and a completely equipped electronics lab in my home, I'm an EE recently retired from GE CRD, research lab and my work focussed on power electronics, thanks for asking.
Well, it seems that the installer left me with a copy of the of the circuit schematic but I don't know how to access the hardware in the "box" or the locations of the various listed parts on the schematic. Tell me what or where your "P2" is and I'll try to locate it on the schematic.
Yeah, my schematic shows P2-1, P2-2, P2-5, P2-6, the last pair being the meat probe and it's where you identified. The schematic also gives codes to get into diagnostic mode and that seems to work! My wife has strongly suggested that we get to lunch...is there any way that we can work on this at a later time? BTW, in spite of the error code, the meat thermometer is not shorted.
O.K., good thought, I'll check this when we get back from lunch...hope prevails that a simple (and inexpensive) solution may result.
