Wondering if you ever solved this problem? I have the same issue with the Profile - just cleaned the bottom oven of a 8 yr. old model, and flashing "door locked" though door is not locked.

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

I have a GE Profile self cleaning oven. JSP46 model. When I broil for around 15-20 mins, the panel flashes door locked and the oven shuts off. I always broil with the door open.

You should replace the door lock mechanism and the door switch.

I have a ge profile oven model starts pt 916 when i broil food the "locked" light flashes, i usually keep the oven door open so i can watch the food after about 5 min the locked light goes off

The only thing spring to mind Mary is that you somehow selected a cleaning cycle which superheats the oven and turns burnt on fat and grease to charcoal. The cleaning cycle never finished and the stove remembers it. The light is flashing to remind you. When the cleaning cycle is in progress, the door locks until it is finished.

Either remove the wall power plug or flip the breaker and leave it overnight. It _should_ erase it from the memory. Or you have to compete the cleaning cycle as per the instruction book.

GE Elec oven JT952-30" blinks the "lock" after self-clean

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.

Enter model number here to find assembly diagrams and parts.

JTP56 Self Cleaning issue

It sounds like you need to replace the door latch assembly. One of the switches on it is not working properly so the control is not getting the correct signal for the door latch position. It could be an oven control problem, but most likely it is the latch.
Post back with the complete model number from the oven if you need more help and I will answer as soon as I can.
Thanks, Mike

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.
