IS THERE A WAY TO BAYPASS THE DOOR LOCK MOMENTARY CONTACT SWITCH CIRCUIT THAT LOCKS OUT THE OVEN RESPONDER ON AN OLD GE OVEN MODEL NUMBER J 348B2WH WHICH ACCORDING TO GE WAS MADE IN 1945

THE OVEN RESPONDER FAILED, AFTER MUCH SEARCHING I FOUND WHAT I THOUGHT WAS AN EXACT REPLACEMENT BECAUSE THE PATENT NUMBER ON THE PARTS WAS IDENTICAL WHICH WAS THE ONLY NUMBER THAT I COULD COMPARE. WHEN THE PART ARRIVED IT IS IDENTICAL EXCEPT FOR ONE TERMINAL THAT IS RIVETED ON THE OLD PART, THE NEW PART HAS THE SAME RIVET BUT THERE IS NO TERMINAL TO CONNECT A WIRE. THE INTERNAL CONSTRUCTION IS IDENTICAL, THERE IS A WIRE ON THE RIVET ON THE INSIDE OF THE NEW PART BUT NO WAY TO CONNECT A WIRE EXTERNALLY. THE WIRE THAT CAN'T BE CONNECTED GOES TO A MOMENTARY CONTACT ON THE LOCK SWITCH. I TAPED OFF THE WIRE AND THE OVEN ACTUALLY WORKED ON SUNDAY 11-2, BUT ON TUESDAY 11-4 I TRIED THE OVEN AGAIN AND THE INDICATOR LIGHT THAT CYCLES ON AND OFF WITH THE OVEN ELEMENT COMES ON FOR ABOUT 3 SECONDS AND THEN GOES OUT.

SOURCE: ge oven door locked

You oven is locked because it is self-cleaning. Some how the handle got moved and it initiated. You may need to let the oven finish self-cleaning. Usually, it can take about an hour to complete the process. Afterward, the oven will beep when done and your oven can be opened. Good luck.

There is usually a micro switch that is activated when the lock lever is in place - very likely this switch is still activated or has failed closed (defective) .

I ran into the same problem replacing my new part. The instructions indicated that the GROUND wasn't used. The Nuetral was located in near the same position. The L1B went to the little black box near the vacant L1B location on the board

How do I find the part number for replacing control board for GE?

I would not be so sure about that the problem is in the control board. Check switches on the door lock assemblies first.

Ge oven turns off by itself, and sometimes gives


F2 Oven temp exceeds 590 w/ unlocked door High resistance or interference in oven temperature sensor. Replace oven temperature sensor F2
Note: Also see fan thermal switches Indicates that oven is over temperature in one of the following modes within either a cooking or clean mode of operation.
· Control senses oven temperature above 650 degrees F with the door circuit in the unlock mode.
· Control senses oven temperature above 935 degrees F with the door in the locked mode.
· Stalled cooling fan or airflow problem. · Look for welded relay contacts. (Heating elements on in off mode).
· Look for open thermal switch in lock motor circuit. Switch is normally closed and will open if area overheats due to fan not operating. Look for cause - fan thermal switch not closing, fan stalled, etc.
· Look for high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit due to high contact resistance (poor terminal crimp, deformed terminals, loose connection) or intermittent solder joint on control or intermittent oven temperature sensor.
· Look for electrical noise interference in the oven temperature sensor circuit (Ham radio, cordless phone, etc.).

Lock light flashing after cleaning. Will not


OK, what has happen here is, the actual temp sensor has failed during the cleaning process, this has cause a temp that reached a dramatic high range(above 915F-930F). At these temps, there will be major damage that will weld the contacts on the door lock switch mechanism and control board.

If actual over temperature condition occurred: Look for welded relay contacts. If this happens, replace oven control (also called clock or ERC).

If no over temperature condition occurred: Look for a high resistance connection or any other cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace sensor if found defective. Check door lock switches for faults as well(welded contacts and burned wiring harness)

Remember: Oven control (ERC) measures resistance of sensor circuit , not actual oven temperature.

I have moved into a house about 11 years old. I started the self clean and now about two hours into it an alarm is going off signifying "F2 door locked". Can't turn off alarm :-( Don't know part...

GE Elec oven JT952-30" blinks the "lock" after self-clean


Try unplugging power cord or trip circuit breaker, to cut the power to the appliance, then wait one or towo hours for the oven to cool down completely.

If the door stays locked, then there is a fault, probably a faulty temp probe that had blown because of high temperatures generated on self cleaning, or a defective control assembly. In that case you will need to call a technician to take apart the oven and fix the fault.

Enter model number here to find assembly diagrams and parts.

I went out to my circuit breakers and turned the circuit off, let the oven cool, and powered it back up after about 2 hours. Fine now.

Look for a microswitch connected to the lock mechanism at the back of the stove. The switch is probably broken.
