Sounds like a thermal overload has opened up during clean. It may be mounted on the back.

SOURCE: Top oven will not heat up

Had a similar problem. The overheat sensor had failed to the open position and the oven control would light up and you could set the temp, but it would drop to 100 degrees and then go blank.

It is one unit. You can not replace just a microwave.

SOURCE: Dead Whirlpool Double Oven

This happened to us the first time we used the self-cleaning feature. The repairman said we had to replace the whole electronic panel -- but when he put in the new panel it didn't work either. It turned out he just needed to replace the oven shutdown thermal fuse I believe. We finally got up enough courage to try the self-cleaning again and the exact thing happened. The door is locked and the electronic panel is dead again. So when we get it fixed we will never use the self-clean again.

SOURCE: GE Double Oven doors locked and circuit not responding

Hi, well this is a brain tester!! I think you need really to look at this in a simple way. Check to see where the door lock wires come from first? Find where the mains power comes into? then if it goes directly to the main control board then check to see if there is any power getting through the board to the otherside where the wires disapear into the cooker. I would consider checking the control board for any signs of burn damage and then look at the clock unit to as these are normally the main components in the cooker that will stop it from working.
Good luck,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

My control panel isn't working. lights and clock work but no other button isn't working. not locked.


If your oven has the control panel in the door, try this...

Open the top door and in the bottom right you'll find a flat cable that goes from the top door into the unit. It'll be just at the hinge.

Pull up on that cable and push it up into the top door. It will likely move just a little. Whilst holding that cable up into the top door look at the control panel and see if it begins behaving normally.

GE had a design problem with the connector on that ribbon cable that is inside the door with the control panel. There is no lock on the connector to hold the cable into the plug. It comes loose (just a little) and can give "probe light" error, "overtemp error" (on a cool oven), and any and all sorts of other unusual errors. The plug will even appear to be connected properly when only one or two terminals of the cable aren't making good contact.

It is poor design for a sliding card / cable configuration. The fix is to come up with a way of holding the cable into the plug. Since one or more connectors in the cable lose connection, some of the controls will be OK and others won't.

If you can "fix" the problem by wiggling that cable then you can have a repairman come out and rig something to hold the cable into the plug.

I took my double oven apart and used duct tape and it lasted a year. I used velcro and it seemed to work better. If it fails again I'm going to cut a couple of cable ties and glue them to the cable and plug to create a semi-permanent connection.

good luck

I have a GE double wall oven Model#: JKP37G0LWG. The clock timer began flashing 8888. What does that mean?


Try this..... The problems that the cable causes vary all over the place since it is dependent on which pin is not making good contact in the plug.

I'm afraid I don't know how to help you get a new control panel (part #WB36K5065 is no longer available). But we have the same oven and a similar problem. Our control panel works just fine, but the face is melted from a recent mishap (small fire in the upper oven while broiling), so the plastic face of the control panel looks awful and needs replacing. If you decide to replace your oven and would like to sell the front face to your control panel we'd love to purchase from you.

Top oven appears to have no power going to it.


Contact an electrician and or the power company.
I believe you have lost the neutral/ground in your power service.

F0 error code on GE Profile PT956 double electric oven


you can also put a piece of paper between the ribbon cable where it joins up before the connector. It has been reported that the cable will short in this area. Try that before spending more money since most of the F-codes appear to be cable related.

GE JKP45 double wall oven shuts off


This sounds like a loose connection (solder joint) on the main control board. I had one that had a similar problem. checked the price of a control board $350. I took the control panel off, took the board apart and found a loose connection on one of the relays. resoldered the bad connection. oven works fine now.
