JGBP35 "LOCKED DOOR" light will not turn off

GE Spectra XL44 (JGBP35) was put through a self-cleaning cycle. Upon completion of the cleaning, the locking lever was disengaged, but the "LOCKED DOOR" light did not turn off. After approximately 12 hours, a new cleaning cycle was initiated, but afterwards the "LOCKED DOOR" light still did not clear. Power has been cycled by way of the breaker at the electrical panel, and it powers up with no error codes, but the indicator will not turn off. The mechanical door locking lever moves freely. I attempted to measure the resistance of the sensor at pins 1 and 2 of connector [IIRC] P101, but saw nothing but zero Ohms (with connector pulled off of the ERC), nor did I get any continuity on pins 3,4,5 (from the latch switch), as expected per the wiring schematic. Is there a specific way that the components need to be tested, or some sort of range self-test feature to accurately determine which part could be at fault? Or is there any other way to clear the door light?

    Am I to take this "solution" seriously?

  • imper Sep 12, 2007

    Manual was read prior to original post; it does not address the problem described.

  • imper Sep 12, 2007

    A new self clean was initiated manually, in an attempt to clear/reset the locked door condition. Unfortunately, this model does not have a numeric keypad - is it possible to enter a diagnostic mode without one?

    I believe the full model # is: JGBP35AEAAA

Imper, so the oven went into a self clean again without you initializing it? That sounds more like a stuck or shorted keypad. See if any error codes come up by entering the diag. mode. Press the cooking time and delay start along with the number 9 pad together for 5 seconds. The last error should display if there is one. Make sure to kill the power for 30 seconds, then power back up again before entering diag mode. If you don't get any errors, run the test for the lock motor and switch assy. by pressing cooking time and delay start and the number 8 at the same time for 5 seconds. test should appear in the display. Press self clean and let it cycle through. Again kill the power before starting the test. Catriver.

    imper, I was looking at the ERC III board which does have the numbered pad. I don't think there is any test mode on your board, the tech sheet should show it if there is. I believe this lock mechanism is thermally controlled. When the oven sensor senses a temp between 560 and 650 the ERC supplies power to the lock motor. When it cools to 300 it signals again to unlock. I would start with ohming out the sensor. 1100 ohms at 75 degrees. From there I would look into the lock motor assy. and switches. Catriver.

Door locked.


The first step would be to unplug the AC power. See if the lock releases. If it doesn't release try plugging the power back in after 5 minutes. One of these tips should should work.
You will still need to find out why it got stuck. Often the reason is grease on the mechanical parts of the lock. Sometimes it's the internal switch that activates the lock during the self cleaning cycle.
Until you fix the problem do not use the self cleaning feature. Good luck

Ge xl44 after self clean cycle the door won't open and the display says "locked door" flashing.


Unplug the unit or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Plug the unit back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and gently try moving the door lock lever (is so equipped) or opening the door.
or
Set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for 15 minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever (is so equipped) or opening the door.
If these procedures fail to correct the condition, the lock must usually be accessed and moved manually to open the door.
Some model ovens require the oven door to be manually unlatched before the controls are returned to the OFF position or else the door may not be able to be unlocked. Check the owner's manual for proper operating procedures.

Can't Get My GE Profile XL44 Self-Cleaning Gas Range to CLEAN ! ! ! ! !


I also have a XL44 (GE JGBP90) and I can't figure out how to latch the door. When I press Self Clean, the display asks me to latch the door, but I don't see a lever. I think it might involve lifting the range, but I don't want to force it. Any ideas?

Oven wont turn on.


I tried several times to get my oven to work and nothing seemed to help. After downloading the manual from this site, my husband locked and unlocked the oven door several times very hard and it knocked something in place and now my oven works. I hope it works for you.
