GE Spectra JB600W0D1WW Range clock control


I have a GE range model "Spectra" JB600W0D1WW.





The clock control is having problems, the up arrows for HOUR and MINUTE do not work, yet the down arrows work,





Do I need to change out the entire board under there to fix this issue?

The arrow "buttons" that you press are just a plastic overlay that is glued to the control board. The problem you are having is with the control board itself. Replacing just the overlay won't fix anything.

You can find a video on how to replace it here.

Thanks, that's basically my original question "Do I need to change out the entire board under there to fix this issue" and you are saying I do need to do that correct?

you'll have to change the board unless you have a good background in electronics and lots of time to do board level repairs.

Re: GE Spectra JB600W0D1WW Range clock control


I agree with @user_12345a - you'll need to replace the board. It might just be bad switches on the board, and it might be possible to replace them if you are skilled at soldering. But many of these boards these days are completely sealed with an epoxy coating which is nearly impossible to remove. It's very difficult to remove the epoxy so you can solder the component without doing damage.



Since there are two switches which you say don't work, that makes me think that it might not be the switches that are the problem. Rather, it might be the microprocessor that controls everything that is the problem.



You could pull the old board and see if you can tell what the problem is before you order the new board. If there is no epoxy coating, you can check the operation of the switch with an ohmmeter. If it turns out the switch is bad, maybe you'd have a shot at repairing it if you can find the exact-fit replacement switch. That might be hard to do.
