Question about GE Spectra JBP78 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Clean mode When I want to turn the oven on to Bake the "clean" red light flashed as if I've selected that mode when clearly I haven't. I don't have the arm lever moved to the right for cleaning mode (which means the clean mode should be inactive and not interfere with my normal routine) but the oven won't let me cook, it won't turn on-unless of course I put it on clean mode, then the temperature kicks in, but this is not what I want. Please respond.

Re: Clean mode

The door lock switch may be stuck down. is there a door lock light on the panel? Otherwise I would guess your control is bad.

Self Cleaning light comes on and flashes when you turn on oven!

It sounds like you have a defective Oven control module. (TO8 Control) is the part that controls all oven functions including clean,clock,timed bake, ect. Item is easy to replace yourself.

Hello Friends Creek.
Welcome to Fixya
You said, you used the self cleaning selection on my Admiral Designer Series gas range. The oven went through the complete cycle of 3 hours. You then unlocked the door and was able to open the oven door no problem. Later on you went to use the oven, pushed the bake button and the lock light would flash. And you could not get past that to get the oven to come on.

You did the right thing to turn off the electricity and then turned it back on.
Did you wait 5 minutes before turning the power back on?Or just flick it off and on?
You said, the lock light still blinked.
But did it lockup again?

Please send me the model and year of your range.

Self cleaning oven

Unplug the power cord for few minutes. then plug it back to see if the light still keep coming.
then do this:
Check if you have it in the lock mode.
Press bake and broil pads together for 2 to 3 seconds until SF shows in the display.
Press the self clean pad, display will show loc off or loc on.
Let me know if it clear the fault.
Good luck from : Prince P

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
