This also provides the ERC the ability to control the hydraulic thermostat Self Clean timing of 5 hours.
  • Page 34 Upper Oven (DRT) Thermostat The thermostat capillary routing on GE & Profile units runs through an opening behind the right rear surface burner. On Café units the capillary routing is in the right hand side panel. The side panel does not need to be removed for thermostat replacement, the rear panel does need removal for the oven cavity routing.
  • Page 35 Upper Oven (DRT) Thermostat The capillary tube routes into the back panel and passes through to the upper oven cavity where it is secured to the back wall with two spring clips. 35 / Copyright General Electric 2011 11/28/2011...
  • Page 36 Upper Oven (DRT) Thermostat The DRT is a hydraulic control thermostat. It receives L1 power from a jumper at the ERC L1. Line power is sent through the RX to SX wire contact and then through the External relay contact. The cycling contact is on the YX to VX wires. The VX to OX is closed for bake and VX to NX for broil.
  • Page 37 Cooktop Burner Gas Valves The cooktop burner valves are secured to the manifold pipe with a (saddle) clamp with a single screw for removal. The spark module switches are “D” keyed on the valve shaft. Clamp Gasket Switch 37 / Copyright General Electric 2011 11/28/2011...

  • Page 39 Cooling Fan – Café Models On Café models – there is a squirrel cage cooling fan in the right rear corner of the cooktop. To service the fan requires removal of the cooktop. Once the cooktop is removed, remove the six ¼” Hex head screws that hold the fan housing and lift up to remove the fan assembly.
  • Page 40 FAD – Café Models On Café models with the cooling fan there is also a FAD (Fan Apparent Device). This thermostat will disable the ovens in an over temperature issue due to a cooling fan failure. The FAD is a self resetting thermostat that opens at 265˚F and closes at 225˚F. If either oven is terminating Self Clean before time out, check Fan and FAD operation.
  • Page 41: Side Panel Removal

    Side Panel Removal There are several components that require the side panel to be removed. The lower oven self clean latch, cooktop gas cutoff valve, door hinge and an upper oven lockout relay. After removing the top and rear panel screws remove the single Phillips screw on the cavity front.
  • Page 42 Side Panel Removal Carefully swing the side panel away from the range, using a large blade screw driver pry out between the panel where it snaps onto the retainer clip while pulling out on the top front of the side panel. Retainer clip Pry Outward 42 /...

  • Page 47 Upper Oven Lockout Relay The upper oven uses a lock out relay that will disable the upper oven from operating when the lower oven is in self clean. When the lower oven is placed into clean the relay is activated by the ERC disabling the upper oven thermostat control.
  • Page 48 Upper Oven Lockout Relay The ERC activates the lockout relay from the “OUT WD” terminal when in clean. When powered the relay opens the cycling contact circuit of the thermostat (NC contact). In the Upper Oven clean cycle the ERC powers the thermostat through the MDL terminal.

  • Page 50 Gas Lockout Valve These models also utilize a gas lock out valve which turns the gas off to the cooktop. This feature can be activated by the consumer through the ERC control and it is automatically activated during self clean. 50 / Copyright General Electric 2011 11/28/2011...
  • Page 51 Gas Lockout Valve The gas lockout function is activated by the ERC when selected by the consumer or when a Self Clean cycle is activated. The Lockout valve will NOT operate if a surface burner is in the on position. Each burner switch must be in the open (OFF) position state to complete the gas lockout function.
  • Page 52 Gas Lockout Valve The gas lockout valve incorporates two positioning switches to allow the ERC to know the position of the lockout valve. Yellow to Orange closes when the valve is open and allowing gas flow to the cooktop. This switch opens and Yellow to Silver close when the valve is closed.
  • Page 53 Cavity TCO‟s – All Models Both upper and lower oven cavity TCO‟s (Thermal Cut Outs) are wired in series between the latching motors and the ERC. If either TCO opens during a clean cycle, the cycle will terminate and the ERC will return to TOD (Time Of Day).
  • Page 54 Self Clean Sequence of Operation When the lower oven is placed into clean mode, 1. The gas lockout valve rotates to shut off the cooktop gas, returns signal to ERC. 2. The lower oven latch locks the door , returns signal to ERC. 3.
  • Page 55 Spark Module Location The spark module on the Profile & GE models is located in the control panel. On Café models the module is located on the back of the unit adjacent to the gas lockout valve. When any surface burner is lit all igniters spark.
