Question about GE JTP15 Electric Single Oven
Tried to clean the oven with the self clean setting but the door would not lock and it would not start to clean. Tried again later and the door locked but the oven still would not start the self clean cycle. The door unlocked, but the "door lock" light flashes and the oven will not work. Tried to reset the whole thing by turning off the breaker but that didn't work either.
Same problems. When I removed the lock operating arm nothing happened. Motor is not operating. I've temporarily kluged it by tying the "unlock" (upper) switch circuit together and disconnecting one side of the power to the "locked" (lower) switch. At least we'll have an oven to use, but I'll have to come back and remove the lock motor assembly to find out what's really wrong.
BTW, if some knows those keyed-in service codes they could be useful.

On mine, I was able to take of the face plate and unscrew the metal locking arm from the motor. Once i wiggled the locking arm away from the locked position I was able to open the door. Once i opened the door, the little motor which controls the locking arm automatically rotated to the unlocked position and cleared teh "locked door" message on the control panel.

I had this problem also. There is a motor on top of the oven after taking it out of the wall. The motor spins around and locks and unlocks the door. When the motor spins all the way around to unlock the door it also activates a switch to turn the oven back on to normal operation. The motor on mine is stuck and did not spin all the way around to activate the switch. I do not know if the motor is broken or something else in the wiring.

This happened to me, had the appliance repairman come out to fix. He hit and held a combination of buttons on the oven controls and reset the panel somehow. But now I don't know what he hit to clear it. Do any of you?
