Question about GE JTP15 Electric Single Oven

Open Question

GE JTP17 convecton oven will not turn on

All panel functions work but when the oven temperature is set, the oven starts then shuts off after 30sec. Oven door is completely closed, there is no child protection and the oven has never given any problems until this. I reset the circuit breaker after 30min. with the same result. I disconnected/reconnected all wire harnesses when the oven was off to see if there was a bad connection but the oven still does not work.

SOURCE: ge oven door locked

You oven is locked because it is self-cleaning. Some how the handle got moved and it initiated. You may need to let the oven finish self-cleaning. Usually, it can take about an hour to complete the process. Afterward, the oven will beep when done and your oven can be opened. Good luck.

SOURCE: "door lock" light stays on and oven won't work

This happened to me, had the appliance repairman come out to fix. He hit and held a combination of buttons on the oven controls and reset the panel somehow. But now I don't know what he hit to clear it. Do any of you?

SOURCE: "Door Locked" flashing on GE Oven JTP15 - can't unlock

The problem may very well be in one of the micro switches on the self cleaning motor bracket. These switches control the electrical flow to the heating elements. In the owners manual there is/should be a chart that lists the unlock and safety combinations. This would be your best source of information.

SOURCE: Flashing locking door light

hi wega,

the door's locking mechanism is controlled by a switch when you shut the door down. much like the light switch on your refrigerator. when you initial closing the switch for locking the door will be triggered does locking the door.

there is a possibility that this switch on your oven is press / stuck that is why it keeps on saying "locking door" which will eventually never be completed.

Find the switch on your door panel, this is usually near the hinge of the door. it can also be safely located with in the hinge assembly, if this is true, there will be no buttons or holes visible.

if you can open the door panel up or remove the casing you will be able to locate the switch on the door hinge and its assembly.

hope this helps.

SOURCE: Keep getting F1 error code (constant beep) on my GE profile oven.

Here is some wisdom for understanding F1 fault codes.

In some models, there are subcodes that make diagnosis even easier.

Here's a simple explanation of what's going on and how to troubleshoot:

The F1 code indicates that:

a. The electronic range control (ERC) is sensing heat in the oven when in a time-of-day (i.e., not cooking) mode.

b. The ERC is receiving information to run multiple heat functions simultaneously.

Although different components (depending upon the model) could generate the code, simple and straightforward testing using your ohm meter is all you gotta do to test for it.

1. Check the oven temperature sensor. The oven sensor has to be within spec or it will cause the F1 code.
As an example of being out-of-spec, the ERC will generate an F1 fault code when the sensor shows 1650 ohms during a time-of-day mode.
This is equivalent to 350┬░F in the oven.
The resistance isn't high enough to generate an F2 code (runaway temp) or an F3 or F4 code (shorted/open sensor circuit).
The ERC monitors the sensor circuit after a heat cycle and expects the resistance to drop back to 1050-1100 ohms.
The fault code is generated when this doesn't happen. Checking the sensor circuit means also checking the harness,
harness connections and the sensor itself.

2. If the oven sensor circuit checks okay, then turn your inquisitive eyeballs to the touchpad.
If the range has a separate touchpad/keyboard, the keypad may have moisture that is shorting several circuits simultaneously.
If the F1 code is given immediately (instead of during or after a heat cycle),
remove the ribbon connector from the touchpad to the ERC after clearing the F1 code. If the F1 code does not return in five minutes,
then cast a suspicious gaze upon the touchpad/keyboard. Shorts may be caused by using an ammonia-based glass cleaner.
The touchpad surface will absorb ammonia-based cleaners that are sprayed directly on the glass surface. When heat is applied,
the surface material can break down causing shorts.
If you're gonna use ammonia-based cleaners on your control panel, then you should spray it on the rag and then wipe the touchpanel
-don't spray directly onto the surface of the touchpad.

3. On Amana ranges with a rotary temperature dial, be sure that the knob is in the OFF position when performing tests.

4. If these tests all check good, then replace the ERC.

Ge profile oven lock button won't go off

  • 1.Press the "Clear/Off" button on the control panel to reset the oven. This will clear the lock setting and unlock the door.

    2.Allow the oven to cool to room temperature to avoid turning the lock on again during this heating cycle.

    3.Reset the oven to the temperature you require to finish cooking by pressing the correct temperature control on the control pad.


  • 1.If your GE Profile microwave won't turn on, unplug it, then plug it back in. A power outage may have occurred due to a power surge. Check your home's fuses and circuit breakers.

    2.Set the clock of your GE Profile microwave. Certain models will not operate until you set the clock. Select the "Clock" key and type in the correct time.

  • 3.Hold down your microwave's "Off" button. You may have accidentally hit the control-lock feature on your GE Profile microwave. Hold down the "Off" button for three seconds to turn the lock off.

  • 4.If the sensors of your GE Profile microwave are not working correctly, remove the food from the machine. If the sensors detect food-surface temperatures over 200 degrees Fahrenheit, it will not work properly until the area cools down.

  • 5.Contact GE Support if you are unable to resolve the issue on your own. Call the GE Support hotline or browse the help library on the GE website. You can also schedule a service visit on GE's website.

    When trying to start oven for baking. I set the temp & press start. It shows the selected temperature, then, after about 10 seconds shows 100 degrees. Nothing happens after that. Oven does not ignite....

    well, at least your door hinges are still working. Let me guess, this is less than 6 months old. Every review of these ovens shows the door function breaking. I wish I had better news...and good luck!

    GE Model JKP12G0P2BG Wall Oven Bake Element Not Working Properly

    The temperature sensor is bad. The broil element will work even if the temp sensor is bad but the bake element will not. If you measure the resistance across the contacts on the sensor, it should be around 20 ohms, if it is much higher (1000+), then it is bad and should be replaced. It is just as easy to replace as the elements and looks like a small pencil sized rod in the inside top of the oven. Let me know how this works out for you.

    GE JKP45 double wall oven shuts off

    This sounds like a loose connection (solder joint) on the main control board. I had one that had a similar problem. checked the price of a control board $350. I took the control panel off, took the board apart and found a loose connection on one of the relays. resoldered the bad connection. oven works fine now.

    What is the reset button for GE Profile JTP18?

    For me the solution was in the temperature sensor. The Locked light kept flashing and the door locking mechanism kept cycling when the door was shut or if I just held the oven light switch in the closed door position. After replacing the control panel I still had the same problem. Next I turned off the breaker and then took off the wire covers on the back of the oven and disconnected the temperature sensor. I then checked the continuity of the sensor which was fine. With the sensor still unplugged, I turned the breaker back on and the panel said locked but the locking mechanism was not cycling. With power still on to the oven I connected the temperature sensor. It worked. All I had to do was press the clear button on the touch panel and everything was fine. I turned the breaker back off and reassembled the oven. Hope this helps.
