Question about GE Spacemaker JMP28 Electric Kitchen Range
Unfortunately, the high-temperature limit sensor has probably been triggered/fried. The door can't unlock automatically because the oven thinks you will get burned. If you pull the oven away from the wall and remove the back panel, you may be able to manually unlock the latch. However, the oven will not work until the sensor is replaced and the unit is reset.
Appliance Parts Pro lists two limit sensors for some models in the JMP28 line. One is for the upper oven; the other is for the lower oven. See: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/search.aspx?model=ge%20jmp28%2027 . Other vendors may also have the limit sensor. Once the part is replaced, you will need to use the Reset button to clear the error. If your oven is still under warranty, call for GE for service. You may prefer to have a professional make the repair even if the oven is out of warranty.
I hope this helps.

I had this same problem with mine (still posted under unsolved) This is the simpler model with the old turn style knob and the lever you slide over to lock the door for cleaning What I think (keep in mind I know little about ovens, more about cars) is that the switch that tells the oven the door is latched is staying engaged, and this is part of the lever mechanism. I cleaned and lubed this mechanism (obviously I would guess you want to use a food safe lubricant) and then moved the lever several times with the oven on so I could see if it turned on. After a few tries the cleaning light went off and the oven light came on. No, its not really a technical answer, all indications to me where that the problem was in the switch which is part of the latch mechanism. Good luck

I had the same problem happen tonight. I have an XL44 self-cleaning gas range. We unplugged it for several minutes and pressed 'cancel' a bunch of times--neither worked. We finally lucked out--opened the oven door and pressed a black button on the upper left side of the front of the oven. It turned out the flashing words and unlocked our door. Weird. There was nothing in the manual about this...

Perhaps the door gasket is not sealing well enough. In self clean mode the oven get very hot and vaporizes the fat off the sides. With a leak I think some of the fat is redepositing on on the outside where the leak is. You may need a new door seal.

Hello friend, thank you for your post!
Based off the information you have provided the door on your Frigidaire wall oven is not unlocking. Performing a reset on your oven can trigger the door latch to unlock, in order to reset your oven you would need to disconnect power from it for roughly ten minutes. If this does not resolve your issue with your oven you can also hold down the clear or cancel button for 10 to 15 seconds.
Another step you can attempt is to perform a self-clean cycle and before the cycle starts cancel it and that can trick your oven into unlocking. If these troubleshooting steps do not help correct the problem it could be a faulty door latch or control panel. I hope this information has been helpful. -Matt
