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.

SOURCE: self clean light blinks when you turn oven on (oven does not work)

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

SOURCE: GE Spectra XL44 Gas Oven, flashing "Locked Door". Can't use oven or close door

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...

SOURCE: self-cleaning leaves a brown stain on the white part on my oven

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.

What does error code F-90 mean on a Kenmore delf cleaning wall oven


The F90 error code indicates that the door unlock time exceeded. This will happen if the lock is in the locked position with the oven door open or if the lock motor fails. Have someone hold in the oven door light switch while you set the control up for the self-cleaning cycle. Let the self-cleaning cycle run for only 4-5 minutes then press stop/cancel. This should allow the lock assembly to reset & retract the door lock back into the unlocked position.

You can also try resetting the appliance by disconnecting it from the outlet or switch off the circuit breaker for 20-30 minutes. Once power is restored run a test cycle. If this does not work I suspect a door lock assembly failure. This type of diagnosing will require accessing the lock assembly & using a volt/ohm meter for testing

How do I unlock the oven door when it won't unlock after cleaning?


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

Oven door locked


Many Kenmore ovens have a control lock that keeps the oven door locked even when the self-clean cycle has not been in use. This feature is meant to prevent children from opening the door or using the controls on the oven. To cancel the oven lockout, push and hold "Stop" for three seconds. Wait 15 seconds for the oven door to unlock automatically.

Reset
After verifying that the oven lockout feature has been released and waiting at least an hour after a self-clean cycle, if the oven door remains locked, try to reset the oven. Disconnect power to the range, and wait 30 seconds. Restore power and try again. If the door remains locked, disconnect the power and try to reset the circuit breaker or fuse. Contact Kenmore if the door remains locked after both attempts at a power reset at 800-827-6655.

It,s always written DOOR on my lcd oven board.The oven doesn't heat.


Hi, it sounds like one of the "lock" switches for the self clean door lock assembly may be faulty, or the oven door light/monitor switch is faulty. Is the oven light "on" ? Either that or when the unit was last placed in self clean the cycle may have been interupted by a power failure or some other accidental/intentional "cancel" command. Try unplugging the unit and plugging it in again right away. The "reset" should force the oven thru a start-up cycle, it essentially makes the onboard "watchdog/monitor" in the processor to check all the switches for the proper position and makes the lock go thru a lock to unlock position. The unit may correct itself just by going thru this off-on process. Hope that helps, let me know. Good luck

Self cleaning oven won't unlock after cycle is complete


Unplug it for about 30 minutes, plug it back in and see if it unlocks. If not, then the latch, interlocking microswitch or control board is faulty. Also look for any bad connections (make suer the power is off before you start wiggling connections).

Oven door won't unlock


I had the same problem on my Kenmore Electric Range. Door would not unlock. Tried pressing "Off" for multiple seconds, but still would not unlock. No error codes. Clock was displaying normally. Finally decided to try running it thru the self cleaning operation to get it to cycle thru locking and unlocking the door. When I started self clean, the door automatically went thru the auto lock and "locked" appeared in the display. I then hit "Off" to clear it and stop the cleaning cycle. The door then unlocked as normal!

Whirlpool RF367LXS Ceramic Glass Range not working


Almost every time I run the SELF CLEAN cycle on my Whirlpool Self Cleaning range, it fails to function after completing the self clean cycle, even though it completes the cycle of cleaning and unlocks the door. What I do to solve the problem, I power off the BREAKER for the range at the main electrical panel in the house and wait 30 seconds, then power on....and the whole system works just fine until the next time I clean it. This has been a problem from the beginning. My theory is that the electronics get heated up and, like a computer, the system stalls out and needs a complete hard reboot. Good luck!
