Model # XXXXX I get "F4 E0", with the oven just sitting

This answer was rated:

Model # XXXXX
I get "F4 E0", with the oven just sitting there with power to it. I have the list of 4 digit codes, and there is no combination like that listed. F4 says it is the meat probe, which has caused me a bunch of problems, but there is no F4 E0 combination.
I am getting ready to remove the oven and disconnect the meat probe harness, since I never use it anyway, but if the oven temp sensor or other component is bad, I want to pull the oven just once to get it working.
Am I safe to assume that the F4 E0 is the meat probe?
By the way, the codes are different colors, amber for the F4, green for the E0, and the digits are not together- they are about 1-1/2" apart and not lined up either.
Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to helping you! There is only the F4 E0 code for the probe, the last part of that code is irrelevant. So, to be sure I understand, the meat probe is not inserted into the jack, correct?

correct. I do not even own the probe

Okay, so when the probe is inserted, there are two contact points in that jack that read the resistance of the probe and send the resistance reading to the control. I believe the wires on that jack have become shorted together and are sending that reading of 0 resistance, or full continuity, to the control. This is a very common problem and easily corrected by replacing the probe jack, pictured and available below.

I do not want the probe at all so my plan is to pull the oven and disconnect the probe connector. I am assuming that doing that will eliminate any future probe problems, correct

Sure, it will read no resistance and no continuity, so it should work just fine!

I have the back of the oven. Can you confirm that the meat probe connector is red? The label on the wire says JT-KHT-WP1, 9755543

It is, it looks like the picture below and the wires will be running to the area of the jack.
