Question about GE Profile 30" Self-Cleaning Freestanding Double Oven Gas Range - Stainless-Steel
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.
SOURCE: DCS gas oven locked
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

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).
