GE JTP56 Double Oven

Wife did a self clean on lower oven.  Self-Clean went through fine.  Now oven won't heat up.  Temp sensor is around 1.080K at room temp and resistance increases when sensor is heated up.  Relay kicks on when start is pushed.  Elements?

    We have a problem with the Top Oven not heating. We are not getting an error code. The last time it was used was on Broil. Display is still working on top, but no heating for Oven, Conv. Oven, Cleaning or Broil. The Bottom Oven is working fine. All we've done thus far is to turn off the power at circuit breaker, then retry but no luck.

Bottom oven doesn't heat after running self-clean cycle

Usually, when an oven won't heat, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.

Self-Clean gets too hot on JTP56 double-oven

Your husband is correct, kind of. You should not try self clean again until you get the oven repaired. You have a temp sensor going out. I doubt that the oven actually got too hot, most likely the resistor in the sensor is failing as it heats up and giving a false temp reading.Since the lower oven was operating at the time, it is probably the sensor in the lower oven. Don't use it for baking until you get it repaired. It will go out completely and shut down both ovens. You should be able to get a new sensor for around $30 and they are not hard to replace.

The oven won't set your house on fire during clean mode if the cabinets were built with the correct air space and dimensions, but they do get very hot, about 800 degrees F. Most ovens give no trouble during the clean cycle, but if there is any weak components in the electronics system it will show up then. It will give you less trouble over time if you don't use the self clean mode and just manually clean it.

GE: JTP56 F2 Door Locked displayed

I have the the same problem as discribed above. Does you oven fan go on for a long time after you use your oven during regular baking. Mine seems to stay on for 45 minutes after I bake anything. Can this be all tied together with the f2 problem? I am wondering if it is not just a fan circulation problem?

Self clean

You should have detailed instructions in your owner's manual. Make sure you are moving the door latch (if equipped) from left to right to lock the door.
