GE Profile Oven Door Lock Broken...

Hi!
A while ago, you helped me out with my oven broiler, a GE Profile (JGBP86WEA2WW). Your advice allowed me to fix the problem myself and saved me the time and frustration (not to mention expense) of calling a professional. Now, if it's not asking too much, I need your help again.

I have a problem with my door lock, or maybe just the sensor. Here's what happens: The display for the oven blinks "Locked Door". However, the door isn't locked and I can open/close it.

Anything you can do to help would be greatly appreciated.

THANKS!!!

-Mark W.
p.s. Note the product number below isn't exactly the same. The one in the e-mail is correct.

    Hi,

    Great answer!

    There are two plastic pieces holding the top in place and I can't figure out how to release them. I have a tendancy to go the wrong way with these things and the "Body Parts" exploded view doesn't help. I'm not convinced the parts that I'm about to break are even listed, unless they are "Pin Locators" as listed on the "Control Panel & Cooktop" exploded view.

    Any suggestions on how to get past those pesky little plastic clips?

    Thank you,

    Bill

    my door locked light is blinking and i can't use oven. I tried to reset the self clean and the lock is not moving. just a grinding sound. the lock acts like it wants to grab and then does nothing. Plus, the only way to get this to do is by me holding the oven door in tight and it cuts off when i release pressure. thanx

It sounds like your door latch motor, and/or interconnecting wiring may be bad. You will need to carefully lift the top panel and/or rear panel and locate the latch motor and linkage. If you go to searspartsdirect.com and look under the "Body Parts" heading, there is an excellent exploded view diagram. The latch is listed as item #279. Your exact model number was not listed, but if you use JGBP86WEA1WW or JGBP86WEA3WW, these will suffice. With the top of the range lifted, inspect the latch for any broken wires and attempt to operate the control panel to see if the latch works. If not, replace it. The part number is WB2K10010. This same part can be found at appliancepartspros.com for about half the price. Let me kow if you require addtional assistance. I hope this helps you.

I need help with my broken Ge profile oven broiler works but not the oven


Hello,
The problem with your oven is the ignitor that lights the burner. You need to replace it and your oven will work again.

GE Profile JGBP86WEA2WW Won't get hot...


Sure. If you go to my profile and look under "Tips and Tricks" section. I have a complete write up on how to replace an igniter in an electric oven. If you can't find it, let me know and I will forward the instructions to you.

PS Yes, this is a simple job that anyone can do. The igniter will cost you about $30 - $60 depending on where you get it. It will save you big $$ in the long run, if you avoid the labor charges :).

If you can smell the gas when you turn on the oven, it may be on a separate igniter that has gone bad. I would check this first. If you are not getting gas to the oven, there is possibly an issue with the supply line.
