GE ranges come in gas and electric models and various configurations, such as slide-in, freestanding or drop-in, and have many cooking features and options. While most of what a GE range can do comes as a benefit to the user, such as convection cooking or self-cleaning, sometimes the range may do something that is unusual or surprising. If the range display is blinking and the control panel will not work, basic troubleshooting steps should return it to normal function.


Step 1

Push "Cancel" if the display is blinking on the GE range. When the display blinks, it indicates a recent power failure or outage.
