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.

Look for a microswitch connected to the lock mechanism at the back of the stove. The switch is probably broken.

The switch inside the door lock mechanism is stuck down making the unit think it is still locked.  the switched is located next to the hook that locks your door.

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

Ge gas oven ran self clean door won't unlock door locked flashing lock motor running continuously


if your motor is running continuously, the door is locking and unlocking. catch it when unlocked, and unplug the range. then disconnect the power wires from the lock motor. this will allow you to use the oven while you get a new lock assembly and replace the one you have. should be fine after that.

Our GE Profile JTP18 keeps flashing "door lock" since we ran a self clean


most of the time a simple fix.... http://www.geappliances.com/search/fast/infobase/10004586.htm
you have to trick the door lock mech into cycling through the cleaning process (takes about 20 seconds)
Print Range - “LOCKED DOOR” flashes in the display

If “LOCKED DOOR” is flashing in the display of your range or oven, and the self-clean cycle has not been selected, follow the steps below to reset your control:

Motorized Switch
    1. With the door open, locate the door jamb switch on the face of the oven. It will look like a small black post or dowel.
    2. Push it in until the oven cavity light goes off, indicating that the oven believes the door is closed.
    3. While you hold the door jamb switch in this position, complete the following steps.
    4. Press the Clean pad, wait 10 seconds.
    5. When the cycle initiates, press the clear/off or cancel pad immediately to cancel it.
    6. Wait 10 seconds for the display to clear.
    7. The door should unlock and there should not be a need for service.
Manual Switch
    1. Press the Clean pad.
    2. Close the door.
    3. Slide the latch to lock the door.
    4. Hit the cancel button immediately.
    5. Unlock the door.
If the above does not correct the situation, a service technician will need to check your cooking product. To obtain in or out of warranty repair on Major Appliances, you may call 1-800-GE-CARES (800-432-2737) or schedule service online.
