Question about Ovens
We just ran the self cleaning system and the door will not unlock. Ran it a second time the next day and stillno luck.
We then shut off all the power to it by hitting circuit breaker and turning back on a few times. Still no luck.
Other than that, we have had no problems with the oven. Its about 7 years old.
Is there a secret code I can enter that will unlock the door? Any ideas? Turkey day is coming quick!
I can't help with the burn marks, but have considerable experience with the F7 problem. Click on the following link for my solution:

I have the exact problem, had a service man look at it while still under warranty. He said it was fixed and left. Tried it again, same problem. Called him back 2 times after that, he quit responding to my calls. By tyhen warranty expired and GE refused to do anything.

The problem may very well be in one of the micro switches on the self cleaning motor bracket. These switches control the electrical flow to the heating elements. In the owners manual there is/should be a chart that lists the unlock and safety combinations. This would be your best source of information.

yes the oven thermal fuse blew when the fan went off its also called a tco switch if you pull out the oven and take the top off there will be a tech sheet there that will give the location of the tco some are on top some are on back this can also happen if the oven is too tight in the cabinet not enough room around it to let the heat dissipate its a round metal disc with two wires on it

I printed down the installation sheets. I could not locate the thermal fuse on the control panel (which was the easiest to get to without removing the oven) so I went ahead and removed the oven. The upper and lower thermal fuses were fine. I put in back into the wall and my husband found the control panel thermal fuse--it was in-line--so we tested it and it was bad. I could not find anyone online that carried this fuse-or even knew the name of it. After much hard work we finally got the info off it--Microtemp KLBALY G4A00 TE 110C. Nowhere could I find a replacement except for something I am hoping is comparable online at Goodman (?). So while I am waiting for the fuse, I went to Radio Shack who had a thermal inline fuse rated at 128C for coffee pots and hair dryers. Also got some fully insulated crimp on connectors. Hooked it up and it works--havent cooked yet--to do cookies soon to test it. So far it seems like everything is running ok. I WILL NOT EVER USE THE AUTO CLEAN again. I dont get why the company has let it lie without helping unknowing consumers

I believe there are two reasons for this model to shut off during bake and reheat. One is the lock as mentioned and the other is the master control board. The control board was faulty in my situation and was replaced (under warranty thank goodness). But even with a new control board - the problem occurred. The tech from GE explained there is a faulty design with the actual connection between the control board and the oven itself so he had to hard wire the control board instead of using the plug in connectors. Just a note that the communication from the lock goes through the control board so what may seem a lock issue could still be the control board. The lock and swtich are mechanical - they just send a signal to the board itself. If the board is faulty, a new lock won't do much to solve the problem. Thanks for the feedback from others.
