Question about GE Profile 30" Self-Cleaning Freestanding Double Oven Gas Range - Stainless-Steel

Open Question

GE Profile oven lock won't unlock/disengage.

I tried the self-clean option for the first time, and when the lock mechanism engaged, it did not catch the door. Now the door won't shut, and the self-clean won't start. I unplugged the stove and bled off the circuits. I restarted it, and it doesn't read "locked" anymore, bu the lock mechanism is still engaged. This is only a year and a half old appliance.

I let the door stay open, hold the switch closed with my finger, activated self clean. Let it run for a minute then hit cancel, the stove heating element shut off and the locked door blinked for 5 seconds then finally stopped. Back to normal.

There is an overtemperature switch built into the electrical panel of the oven. Resetting this switch may solve the problem.
To reset it:
TURN OFF THE POWER!
Open the door (if it is locked, turn the power back on and gently pull on the door every few seconds as the locking mechanism cycles until it is unlocked)
remove the 3 screws below the control panel (screws point upwards, with the head just inside the oven)
pull off the face of the control panel. Let it dangle by the wires so that you have access to the space behind it.
Within the electrical enclosure exposed by removing the control panel, Look for a small silver and black device with 2 wires attached to the back. The device is about .5" wide by 1" long and is attached with 2 screws to the sheet metal on the bottom of the electrical enclosure. usually located nearly in the middle of the electrical enclosure.
Push the tiny button on top of the switch. You should feel a click.after Reassemble and power up.
hope this solves the problem do let let me know i will appreciate a fixyaa rating thanks and Godbless

You might try to reset the unit by unplugging it. Plug it back in, reset the clock & try it again. Hope that helps.

To bayziepepper. Thanks so much. Had the same problem as those above and pressing the black button solved the problem. Now, I don't need to call the repairman.

As for shannon603, I think he/she has his/her own particular problem (and not only with the oven).

Oven door is locked out - Sears no help


      1. Step 1 Read the display on the electronic oven controls, where the clock and timer normally appear. If the display reads "CLN" while the "Door Locked" light is on, the Kenmore range is in self-clean mode. When the Kenmore range is in self-clean mode, you must stop the cleaning process before the door will unlock.
      2. Step 2 Stop the self-cleaning process by pressing and holding the "Stop/Clear" button for three seconds. The oven lock should disengage after three seconds. In some cases, a malfunction between the control panel and the locking mechanism prevents the door from unlocking.
      3. Step 3 Hold the light switch for several seconds if the "Stop/Clear" button fails to unlock the range door. Engaging the light switch for several seconds resets the entire locking mechanism and overrides the "Stop/Clear" button.

Oven wont turn on.


I tried several times to get my oven to work and nothing seemed to help. After downloading the manual from this site, my husband locked and unlocked the oven door several times very hard and it knocked something in place and now my oven works. I hope it works for you.
