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.

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.

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.

Cycling the power off and then on again will sometimes reset it...often you will have to call the customer service number to get the steps to take to unlock that...
