When replacing your bad furnace control board with a new control board it is a good practice to have the new replacement board out of its packaging or box and to hold it in front of the old board so that you can examine both of the circuit boards and make certain that they are the same before pulling any wires loose from the existing board and replacing.

If you are not familiar with all of the wires that are connected and will need to be disconnected and transferred from one board to the other, have your phone handy and snap a few good photos of the bad control board while it is still connected in your furnace for future reference, if needed.

Now that you know that both of the boards are the same, hold the new one up close to the old one and start transferring the wires from the old board to the new one. one at a time, using a pair of needle nose pliers.

You will need a screwdriver to disconnect the screws for your small gauge thermostat wires.  While transferring and reconnecting the thermostat wires, make sure that the outer plastic coating is cut back far enough from the tip of the bare wires so that when you connect them to the new circuit board you only have bare copper wire touching the plate while you tighten the screws down for a good electrical connection.

Once you have transferred all of the wires from the old board to the new replacement control board you will need to loosen or take the screws out of the control board housing or mounting panel.  Once it is loose and free from the furnace you will need to turn it over and release the control board from the back of the mounting panel then simply align the new board pins with the holes in the mounting panel and snap it into place.

Now, position the mounting panel back onto the furnace and tighten the screws back.  Replace all of the access panels and secure them.  Turn the power source back on and your furnace should be good to go and ready for use.

Your Trane furnace control board has a life span just like any other household appliance parts do and can wear out from use and age.  Lightning strikes cause a lot of havoc on appliances and are responsible for damage to many circuit boards.  Electrical power surges and flood waters or just moisture/condensation can also be to blame for a faulty furnace control board.

which is usually a 30 AMP double throw breaker.  Next you will need to firmly flip the breaker switch off and on a few times to test it, even if the switch looks like it is in the on position.  The electric dryer has two 110 volt circuits, the dryer motor will run but will not supply voltage to the heating element if one circuit has been tripped or is not on.  During the heat of summer, this is a pretty common occurrence.

 

If this did not fix the no heat problem with your dryer, you will need to test the dryer’s heating element, thermal fuse, thermostats and

GE Oven Showing F1 And Beeping

GE Oven Showing F1 And Beeping

If your GE oven is showing F1 on the touchpad or keypad on the top of your oven along with an annoying beeping, sound this might help you fix the problem.

This is an error code that indicates there is a problem or malfunction with your GE oven or stove.  But this does not always require an appliance technician or a service repair call.
Here are a few simple things that you can try yourself to fix this issue.
Push the cancel button on your oven or stove key pad, if this procedure worked, the beeping sound and the F1 code will have disappeared.  If step (1) did not solve the issue let’s move on to step (2)
If your oven or stove has a cord that is plugged into the wall socket you can unplug it from the outlet for 10 or 20 minutes.  After this time you can plug the oven cord back into the electrical outlet and see if this has solved your problem.  However, your oven may not have a regular extension cord that plugs into a wall outlet/socket.  This means that it is hard wired into the electrical box.  If this is the case on your oven you will need to locate the circuit breaker in your homes fuse box that supplies electricity to your oven/range or stove.
You will need to flip the circuit breaker to off position for 10 to 20 minutes.  After this time you can flip the circuit breaker back to the on position.  If this does not solve the problem of the F1 and beeping sound this means that the Oven Control Board  Electronic Oven Control (EOC) has failed or the oven temperature sensor is bad.
If you are not comfortable and have any doubts whatsoever with any of the tasks listed above, please do not attempt these procedures.  Call a reputable, qualified appliance service technician to install these GE oven replacement parts.
