Question about GE Profile 30" Built-In Single Electric Wall Oven - Black-on-Black
Panel flashes locked
Thermal protector has caused lockout. happens w/ self clean a lot. it's a small thermostat device most likely on the rear of the oven. oven need to be pulled from wall to check/replace. you may have to open door w/a coat hanger if it's locked to get the door open to allow access to screws to allow removal of oven from wall if it's a built in. unplug it before doing anything. fuse is under back cover size of a bottle cap, 2 wires, should be "closed" normally. replace or spray w/freon to "reset" it.

It was a "reset" switch in behind the control panel that went off when the self clean cycle increased the temperature in the area behind the control panel got too hot. After flipping the breaker, and then flipping it back on the oven finally unlocked. I pulled the control panel off and pushed the reset switch. Everything fired back up great. I just won't use the Self-Clean ever again.

It sounds like you need to replace the door latch assembly. One of the switches on it is not working properly so the control is not getting the correct signal for the door latch position. It could be an oven control problem, but most likely it is the latch.
Post back with the complete model number from the oven if you need more help and I will answer as soon as I can.

Hello - Before using the self-cleaning cycle of the appliance, remove the broiler pan and any utensils stored in the appliance. Also remove any excess spillovers in the oven cavity. Allow the oven to cool before cleaning. During the self-cleaning cycle, the outside of the wall oven can become very hot to the touch.
Typically to set the controls for a self-clean the first step is to confirm that the clock shows the correct time of the day. Press CLEAN. "---" appears in the display. Press the UP ARROW or DOWN ARROW once. "3:00" appears in the display for a 3 hour cycle. To change to a 2 hour cycle press DOWN ARROW"2:00" appears in the display. As soon as the controls are set, the motor drive lock will begin to close automatically and the "LOCK" indicator light will flash. DO NOT open the oven door while the light is flashing (it takes about 15 seconds for the over door to lock). "CLn" will appear in the display during the Self-Clean cycle and the "LOCK" light will glow until the Self-Cleaning cycle is complete or cancelled and the oven temperature has cooled.
When the Self-Clean cycle has completed, the time of the day or "End" will appear in the display window and the "Clean" and "LOCK" light will continue to glow. Once the over has cooled down for about 1 HOUR and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can be opened. If "End" is the display and the Clean indicator light remains ON, press CLEAR/OFF. The time of the day will appear in the display.
If it becomes necessary to stop or interrupt a Self-Cleaning cycle, press CLEAR/OFF. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 HOUR and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can be opened. Restart the Self-Clean cycle once all conditions have been corrected.
