My 20-yr old GE double oven had been failing intermittently for a while. The lower oven ceased to function completely and the upper would occasionally stop with an F5 error. Finally, I could not set the temperature at all and considered replacing the ovens entirely (a very expensive proposition). When I inquired locally about repairs, I got various responses - all discouraging ("They don't make parts for that any more..." etc.). I found FixYourBoards.com by doing a Google search on the control board part number. After an inquiry by e-mail, I decided to give them a try. They were up front about the cost ($196) and told me that they had about a week backlog. I sent them the board and a check and the day they received the board, they called to tell me that it had arrived and to alert me to the possibility that the keypad also might be bad. If the keypad was bad I would have to replace that as well, so they asked if I wanted them to suspend work on the control board until I could check out the keypad (a service they offer for $4). I decided to take a chance on the keypad being OK and asked them to go ahead with the control board repair. Instead of the week+ I expected, the board was back in my hands in four days. I installed it last night and it works perfectly. I couldn't be more pleased and recommend them highly.
I was at my wits end when my control board went out on my expensive GE Profile stove. I had actually fixed the control board once, sanding the contact points on the relay switches, but a high/low voltage surge wiped the whole thing out. I called Sears and they couldn't fix it because the stove was too old. The local appliance repair man wanted $103 for a home visit with no guarantee that he could do the repair, and everywhere I looked on the web for a rebuilt control board lead to dead ends. I finally stumbled upon FixYourBoard.com, called them up, and they were very confident that they could fix my board and find a new cover for it to boot! It took me, at most, an hour to take out the old control board, package it up, and pop it in the mail. I was told that the turnaround time was approximately 10 days, but was pleasantly surprised to receive my rebuilt board back in one week. I installed it and it worked perfectly. I can't tell you how happy I am to have my stove fully functioning once again. The only alternative was to either buy a new stove, do without an oven, or get some kind of standalone oven and find a place to put it in our small house. I highly recommend FixYourBoard.com

The control board on my 22 year old GE Profile Wall oven failed, and I was told by a GE technician that, unfortunately, there was nothing that could be done. "$80 please, unless you'd like to buy a new oven for $1500, in which case my visit is free".
Umm...thanks, but no thanks.
I started looking online for places to order a replacement board, but apparently replacement boards are just not available for such old ovens. Fortunately, I found these guys. They rebuilt my existing board for less than $200, including shipping.
I was a little intimidated by the process of removing and re-installing the board myself. I'm not exactly handy. But after doing so, I would say that anyone that can put together an Ikea bookcase, or install a ram module in a PC has the skills to remove and re-install a rebuilt control board.
Just be sure to turn off the power to your oven first. And also, take photos before removing the board, and use them to know which wires go back where.
Nothing to it..
Thanks very much!
The top oven of my GE double oven had not worked for years. I had diagnosed the problem to the control board; however, it is no longer manufactured. So, we limped along with one oven. I decided to do some research on line, thinking maybe I could purchase a used board somewhere. I came across FixYourBoard.com as a resource to repair my board. Further research yielded good reviews and the fact that the board would be warranted for two years. I shipped the board, they repaired in in one day and shipped it back. I had a perfectly functional oven in less than a week. Definitely recommend this company!
Top oven in 22 year old GE double wall oven stopped working. Called two techs who both said it was probably the control board, which was no longer available. Only alternative they offered was to replace the entire double oven. Cost would have been $2,000 +, not including remodeling the cabinet because our size wasn't made any longer, either.
I stumbled across Fix Your Board doing internet research about the problem. They quoted $196 and that's what I paid. Turnaround was less than 2 weeks. Oven works perfectly and their work carries a 2 year guarantee. I figure they saved me at least $1800. Best $196 I ever spent!
They did exactly for me what was advertised. I needed the control board repair for my GE Profile double oven. It had been periodically throwing errors and started beeping (usually at the most convenient time in the middle of the night :-)). Also, when using it, it would just shutdown right in the middle of a bake and I could not turn it back on. It eventually got so bad I had to turn the power off at the circuit breaker. The oven was unusable. I sent the board to FixYourBoard.com as instructed on their website. I opted for the option to give my credit card over the phone when the repair was complete (as opposed to sending a check along with the board). They called me about a week later to tell me the board was fixed. They charged $160 which was advertised by the website. This is 1/2 the cost of buying a new board. Keep in mind the prices will be different based on your board and the repairs needed so that might not be the cost for your board repair. I saw some complaints about repair costs that we higher than the website quoted. Just wanted to point out these folks seemed honest and did exactly for me what was expected and advertised. I received by board about 3 days after I paid for the repairs. Installed the board and I now have a working oven. I would have no hesitation recommending them to others for oven board repair.

After speaking to several companies my husband chose FixYour Board. We are so happy we did! Great customer service and best of all my GE oven works perfectly!
The turn around time was so fast and the price was exactly what was quoted. The only request is start accepting American Express.
I sent in my GE oven board SF385PEWN and was completely satisfied with the service I received. They repaired the main failure AND performed some preventative work because apparently the board is prone to other relay failures. The board is now working great. No problems. I paid the price listed on the website and had the board back in about a week. Definitely would recommend and will use them again. Thanks!
Real lifesavers. Woke one morning to 20 yr old GE range beeping and flashing an F1 error code. Ran into problems finding and scheduling a repair tech, so started looking online for part only to find it was discontinued and no one had a suitable replacement in stock. Came across FixYourBoard.com and decided to give them a try. Total cost of replacement was 190.00 which included expedited shipping back to me.
In the end I'm glad I had trouble scheduling a repair guy to come out since I probably would have ended up with a bill and recommendation to replace the appliance.
My GE Oven died after running a self clean cycle. This oven was manufactured in 1991. It has always worked well. After the clean cycle completed the next day I tried using the oven and it would start, then shut off. I attempted to get estimates from local appliance repair shops. They said parts are no longer available for an oven this old. I searched for a new ovens to find they started a $1300.00 ! After searching the web I found FixYourBoard. I thought why not ? I removed my controller for the oven and sent it following their shipping instructions. They found the problem, repaired it AND replaced other items that were prone to fail. I re-installed the controller and my oven works great ! This is probably the best money I have spent on a repair. Removing and replacing the controller was really easy (I know very little about electronics). It was still easy to take out and replace. I would HIGHLY recommend FixYourBoard. It is nice to know there is a REAL service organization out there. Thanks FixYourBoard !!
