Customer Question
My oven temperature sensor...

My oven temperature sensor no longer works and returned two alarm codes. The first error message indicated that the sensor was no longer working, two days later a second alarm indicated the oven was overheating. I switched off the breaker and removed the sensor. The problem is my stove is on the same breaker, I am afraid to switch it on while the sensor is not installed. Should I switch the breaker on?

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of your oven? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

It is a GE model # J KP14WOP3WG it is about 20-25 years old.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes the sensor is out and I am awaiting a replacement later this week.

Welcome to justanswer.com

It is OK to use the stove...ok to turn the breaker on as long as the wires for the sensor are safe...taped up individually so they cannot short to each other or to ground.
