Question about GE JKP27 Electric Double Oven
In both top and bottom oven a probe is sticking out from the back wall. Is this normal? I can't remember if it was there before.
In the bottom oven, there is long probe type thing that seems to be loose and it gets in the way when I use the oven.
I am having trouble removing the bottom oven door so I can clean the oven. Is there a knack to it.
Yes the probes can stick out from the back oven walls. They look like thin pencils about 6" long. They should NOT be loose. The probes are your temperature sensors. If they become damaged your oven may not work. The probes are generally high up on the wall and to one side...about an inch or so down from the top...and the same from the side. They should be horizontal and not bent at an angle. Some probes run along the side of the oven wall and do not protrude into the baking area. In general the probes (whatever type) should not really interfere with the baking zone

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.

SOURCE: how do I replace the probe
Yes and no the reason they ask you to cut them is the lenght of the wire does affect some of the probes (thermistor) it reads resistence and the longer the wire the more it will read if you want it to be for sure your model is this type do it the right way and pull the oven if you want to cut it in place then try the oven like that if you are happy with the temps then leave it the reason the wire wont pull out the is a zip strap holding it in the wire bundle behind the back wall.Hope this helps

Try unplugging power cord or trip circuit breaker, to cut the power to the appliance, then wait one or towo hours for the oven to cool down completely.
If the door stays locked, then there is a fault, probably a faulty temp probe that had blown because of high temperatures generated on self cleaning, or a defective control assembly. In that case you will need to call a technician to take apart the oven and fix the fault.

Usually, when an oven won't heat, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.
