GE JGBP80 oven shuts off and the locked door light flashes

My oven shuts off during preheating or during baking time and the door locked light flashes. Wiggling the door lock will shut off the light but the oven needs to be re-started and it has happened several times in a row by itself-no bumping of the lever or walking near it.
I have not hit hit the self-cleaning buttons by accident. It just happens and is very frustrating. I can't leave the kitchen when cooking.

    I have the JBP84 and it does the same. It just shuts off after so many minutes for no reason at all. It is a brand new oven. It does this during preheat and during bake.

    I had the repair service here and they replaced the ERC (motherboard component) to the tune of $375 after I told them it was a funky lock issue. Christmas day it happened 2 more times so I called the repair center, they came again, and this time said it was the door lock and ordered a new one. I did get a credit for the replacement of the ERC. The part is ordered and we'll see. Now I just ned to get through cooking for New Year's......3 holidays and it still isn't fixed....

I believe there are two reasons for this model to shut off during bake and reheat. One is the lock as mentioned and the other is the master control board. The control board was faulty in my situation and was replaced (under warranty thank goodness). But even with a new control board - the problem occurred. The tech from GE explained there is a faulty design with the actual connection between the control board and the oven itself so he had to hard wire the control board instead of using the plug in connectors. Just a note that the communication from the lock goes through the control board so what may seem a lock issue could still be the control board. The lock and swtich are mechanical - they just send a signal to the board itself. If the board is faulty, a new lock won't do much to solve the problem. Thanks for the feedback from others.

That's awesome! I just found this site on Christmas day minutes away from family arriving and I had exhausted the manual for help. Under the troubleshooting section of the manual it lists "door Locked" light blinking as a problem with the only solution being - "shut the door." With three dishes in the oven that didn't help!

I took the advice of the site and wiggled the actual door lock on the inside of the oven and that didn't work right away either.

I had to trick the oven into thinking the door was shut by pressing the sensor on the right hand side in and then turn on the oven cleaning cycle with the sensor held down. After the lock activated and moved across with the door open, I had to hold down the door unlock feature and wiggle the lock as it unlocked. A little more complicated, but none the less it worked!

It must be a sensor inside the locking mechanism that isn't reading the lock being open - or something...

Oven wont bake


If this is the design that the oven will click to light they generally will preheat but shut down once they go to standard bake. The oven will try three times to relight but then shuts down and will not try to light again until you reset the oven. If this is the case the oven burner itself is usually the problem. the burner comes with the electrode.

Amana Convection oven not controlling temp


I have just checked the baking guide in the manual and have found that it may not be us after all. (Maybe this is why they telll us to read the whole manual. Well, I never have) According to the cooking time for Baking, the range is very extensive. For example, an angel cake at 350 could take from 28-50 minutes, buscuits at 375-400 could take 8-16 minutes, layer cakes at 350-375 could take 25-40 minutes, pound cakes at 325-350 could take 45-70 minutes and fresh pies at 400-450 could take 35-60 minutes. Basically, the baking directions on the box means absolutely nothing to use Amana oven owners. We have no choice but to cook our food or baked goods until they are cooked, whenever that may be. :) Linda
