I moved the latch for my jtp15 ge oven and now it won't open. What do i do to move the latch back over?

The latches on this model oven have a very high failure rate. Once the latch fails it is permanent. To open the door you have to access the control panel to reach the door look. To do this first turn the power to the oven off at the service panel by turning the breaker off.
  • Step 1 Remove the three screws from the control panel. The control panel is on the outside of the oven, above the door handle. Pull the bottom of the control panel toward you, then lift it up. This action will release the control panel cover's tabs.
  • Step 2 The mechanism that operates the door latch during the self-cleaning cycle will be behind a smooth, square plate held in place with two screws. White, black and red wires, as well as a grounding wire, will be protruding from the face of the plate. These wires will be twisted together with other control panel wiring and covered with electrical wire caps.
  • Step 3 Remove the failed part by removing the caps and untwisting the wires. Using an appropriate wrench, extract any screws holding the plate in place. The cylindrical-shaped mechanism will be attached to and behind this plate.
  • Step 4 Visit a store or contact GE at (800) 626-2224 to acquire a replacement part. To reassemble, slide the new mechanism into where the old one was and reattach the plate with the screws. Reconnect the wires by twisting them together and replacing the electrical wire caps.
  • Step 5 Replace the control panel by slipping the top of the panel into its groove and angling the panel downward, dropping the tabs back into the slots. Replace the three screws.

    Machine light turns on, cycle light blinks, door is closed but the door lock light doesn't come on and washer won't start. Code shows f dl?

    The door lock and switch assembly has failed. You may actually hear it click several times before the code appears. If not, it may not be receiving power or signal from the central control unit to activate.

    Disconnect power to the washer to avoid electric shock.

    Remove the three screws from the rear of the top panel attaching it to the cabinet then slide the panel rearward, and then lift it off the cabinet.

    Disconnect the third and the fourth from right, facing the front of the washer, wiring harness connectors from the central control unit. Clean the connector terminals thoroughly then reseat it several times to ensure a good connection between them. Do the same with the connector second from the top on the left side of the central control unit.

    After ensuring that the connectors are properly connected, slide the top panel back in place, and then secure it the three attaching screws.

    The next thing to do is visually check the door lock and switch assembly for physical damage.

    Remove the wire and spring assembly that holds the door gasket to the lip of the door opening. Use a pair of needle-nose pliers to stretch the retaining spring then remove it together with the wire.

    Gently peel the part of the door gasket near the door lock/latch assembly off the lip of the right side of the door opening. Remove enough of the door gasket to access the door lock/latch assembly behind the front panel.

    Remove the three screws securing the door lock/latch assembly to the front panel and slightly lift it then pull it back off the front panel.

    Pull the door lock/latch assembly out of the washer and disconnect the wiring harness. Clean the terminals and reseat it several times.

    To replace the door lock and switch assembly (part #8182634); connect the wires properly then secure the assembly into position behind the front panel with the three securing screws.

    Put the eased part of the door gasket back in place over the lip of the door opening.

    Check that the door gasket is properly seated before securing it with the retaining wire and spring around the lip of the door opening and the door gasket.

    if you hit the lock button a couple times, will it finally lock?

    If so, then you will need to take door cover off and lube up the connectors as they probably got corroded.

    WIndows don't work and I need to open up the door cover!

    First try running the window switch to fully lower the window. Yeah, I know it's already down, but the regulator uses a push/pull cable that has detached from its connection to the window mount. It "pulls" the window up and "pushes" the window down. When detached from the window mount of the regulator, the window motor doesn't know when to quit turning, and so the cable has run all the way through the motor, certainly further than it should be run. If you're lucky, the end of the cable (the end that should normally be attached to the window attachment platform) is still at the motor and can re-mesh with the gears of the motor and allow the motor to pull it back in. When my regulator broke, the cable ran back into the far recesses of the door and tried to seek new paths. I suspect yours has run too far and "found" the latch/lock mechanism and jammed it. By "lowering the window" from the switch, the motor will hopefully pull the cable back out of the places it does not belong.

    If that doesn't work to get your door open, you obviously cannot remove the inner door panel with the door shut. So find a used door (same year, model and door position) with the the same color interior at a junkyard. After purchasing the new inner door panel and the two door lock and latch push/pull rods (horizontal), you can cut away your existing panel knowing you have replacement parts on standby. BE CAREFUL NOT TO CUT THROUGH THE WINDOW and LOCK CONTROL ELECTRICAL WIRES! Start the cut across the sill, then pull away as you cut downward so you can see the wires. The predominant possibilities, in this case, are that the regulator cable is still jammed in the latch/lock mechanisms or that the glass rattled out of its track and jammed the latch/lock control rods or broken the plastic levers to which they are attached.

    I imagine this advise is too late for you, but it may help someone else. Good luck!

    Door latch

    The latch is fairly simple to replace. There are several screws around the inside of the door that hold the inside panel in place. You then will be able to slide the panel out of the way (it is attached by wires).

    You will then be able to access the latch it is not attached by any screws, but there is a wire harness on each side of the latch. There are two clips that you need to hold out of the way and slide the black harnesses off the two pins on the latch.

    Then simply replace the latch and close up the door and your problem is fixed.
