I am unsure whether you are asking for the control itself or the knob or ?
If you google for GE 169152 control part you will get some results, including some manuals. Once you find the part number of the part you are looking for, you can either look for that part online, or you should be able to find a local appliance part supply store/warehouse to get it from. I got a GE genuine temperatire control for my GE range last week from ReliableParts locally.

This means that the Sabbath mode has been enabled. To disable the program, first press and release the Cancel/Off to stop the current programmed bake settings. Then press and hold Settings until Sabbath Mode Off is displayed. See page 14 of the manual for setting the Sabbath mode. The manual is available on the product page: . The current link to the manual is . Most GE oven codes are listed here: . The Sabbath Mode symbol is shown at the bottom of the table.

This mode can be used to set the oven temperature for an extended bake (usually for a low temperature) or a programmed bake. It's used by those who strictly keep the Sabbath but want a hot meal ready when the Sabbath ends.

I hope this helps.

you guys are going to laugh at this. have this problem. my repair guy gave me a tip until I can figure out long bottom oven...there are vents at the top. use a flashlite and look in back right corner and you will see a squirrel cage fan. I taped together two long skewers to reach the back...insert through vent to squirrel cage fan and spin a few times. bingo...f code goes away and oven goes back to normal. don't want to do this long term but works until you get a solution. Ive been doing it for a month now but I travel all week and haven't had a chance to get it repaired. this has worked every time...seems like a dead spot in the drive for this???"

Generally speaking, F2 fault code indicates the oven exceeded 590 degrees with the door unlocked. This could be caused by a stuck relay on the oven control board or it could be caused by high resistance in the oven temperature sensor probe.

If the element will shut off then the likely failure is the oven temperature sensor probe. The sensor is located inside the oven cavity. It will be protruding from the rear panel in the upper left or upper right corner. The sensor can be removed and replaced from inside the oven cavity

Hello, the model number is incorrect, you are missing a 4 or a 3 after the letter F. Based on the model JT5000SF4SS, the problem is the control board that also acts as a display board and touchpad, part number is WB27X25342, you can get it from RepairClinic and return it if it doesn't work.

Could be the bake element is bad or oven sensor is bad or control board is bad

This forum, as its name suggests ('Optics'), relates to telescopes, microscopes and binoculars (and also, some people seem to think, firearms). An oven is in none of those categories. Posting in a forum dealing with domestic equipment may produce more results.

There are elements in the oven too but I will assume you are referring to the stovetop elements only.

You did not give a model so I can't research any information, but it could be that a main connection has come loose under/behind, or a safety device (fuse) has tripped.
Before working on the stove, turn off the breaker you are dealing with 240 Volts and can be very dangerous.

One thing to test, try turning the breaker off and back on again and test the cooktops, otherwise turn the breaker back off before proceeding.

Some stove have screws under the front lip (maybe covered by the oven door) that with removal, allow the top to be lifted, otherwise you will need to pull away from the wall, disconnect power and access the back for further troubleshooting.
