SOURCE: oven shuts down

My mother-in-law's oven was doing the same thing. At first it was actually turning completely off which led me to think it was a loose connection on the circuit board. That turned out to be exactly what it was. I had to dismantle the front of the oven, remove the circuit board, and resolder the connections. The first time I did this I must have missed a few bad joints and that's when it started doing what you described (shuting off and showing lock door). I pulled it back apart and found a few more bad solder joints which I fixed; so far so good. This is of course one of those "don't try this at home" fixes but it least lets you know what is causing the problem.

SOURCE: GE JGBP80 oven shuts off and the locked door light flashes

I believe there are two reasons for this model to shut off during bake and reheat. One is the lock as mentioned and the other is the master control board. The control board was faulty in my situation and was replaced (under warranty thank goodness). But even with a new control board - the problem occurred. The tech from GE explained there is a faulty design with the actual connection between the control board and the oven itself so he had to hard wire the control board instead of using the plug in connectors. Just a note that the communication from the lock goes through the control board so what may seem a lock issue could still be the control board. The lock and swtich are mechanical - they just send a signal to the board itself. If the board is faulty, a new lock won't do much to solve the problem. Thanks for the feedback from others.

SOURCE: shuts off when preheating with F3 or F6 error

The F3 error on this model is an open thermostat circuit. The F6 is a control or loss of power. Make sure the unit is plugged into a good 120 Volt outlet. Test this outlet with a power drill or lamp, wiggle cord in receptacle, if no other test experience or equipment is avaliable. Check the thermostate in the oven for physical damage. There may be a loose connection in the oven. This would require a good technican to find.

Sounds like a circuit board issue. If in Warranty, contact the manufacturer and have the controller replaced. A routine cleaning has noting to do with the normal operation of the baking or broiling function. Cleaning is disengaged after the door is unlocked and ready for general aplications.

Gas oven heats up to proper temperature and then quits heating.


It sounds like you may have a Whirlpool gas range. If so it is more that likely the burner assembly itself. The electrode attached to the burner gets to where it will light during the preheat but then once it starts to cycle the spark module tries three times to light the burner and then shuts down. the burner assembly comes as one unit with the electrode attached.

Oven wont bake


If this is the design that the oven will click to light they generally will preheat but shut down once they go to standard bake. The oven will try three times to relight but then shuts down and will not try to light again until you reset the oven. If this is the case the oven burner itself is usually the problem. the burner comes with the electrode.

GE JGBP80 oven shuts off and the locked door light flashes


That's awesome! I just found this site on Christmas day minutes away from family arriving and I had exhausted the manual for help. Under the troubleshooting section of the manual it lists "door Locked" light blinking as a problem with the only solution being - "shut the door." With three dishes in the oven that didn't help!

I took the advice of the site and wiggled the actual door lock on the inside of the oven and that didn't work right away either.

I had to trick the oven into thinking the door was shut by pressing the sensor on the right hand side in and then turn on the oven cleaning cycle with the sensor held down. After the lock activated and moved across with the door open, I had to hold down the door unlock feature and wiggle the lock as it unlocked. A little more complicated, but none the less it worked!

It must be a sensor inside the locking mechanism that isn't reading the lock being open - or something...
