Can't turn off self clean

I have a GE Spectra JBP78 which I was self-cleaning. It started smoking and we couldn't turn it off. I turned it off at the circuit breaker but now I can't get the oven door open or the self clean turned off. What should I do?

It was probably smoking because the goo in the oven was burning off as it should; that's how the s/c works. Turn it on and let it finish if you can. If not, then a thermal fuse tripped and you'll need the repair man. I cannot see your repyl due to some tech issue w/ the site, so it may be a day or so before I can reply again. Please leave feedback for me if appropriate. Thanks

We had the oven on, and steam came from area behind the back right burner. Food burned a little bit.


Hello- Oven vent exits this area. Very hot exhaust - you will see smoke and or steam when sumpthin burns. Scrape and clean spills w/water. Avoid 'self-clean' function- NOT healthy for ANY range-no matter what the salesman said. - Hope this helps- ED

Turn oven on Red self cleaning light comes on


You oven latch handle is either bent or the switch that attaches to the last assembly is bad. More likely you have a bent latch. You can get to it after unplugging the range, lifting the cooktop up (3 or 4 screws under the front lip) then the panel under the cooktop has to be removed to see the latch.
