SOURCE: GE Double Oven doors locked and circuit not responding

Hi, well this is a brain tester!! I think you need really to look at this in a simple way. Check to see where the door lock wires come from first? Find where the mains power comes into? then if it goes directly to the main control board then check to see if there is any power getting through the board to the otherside where the wires disapear into the cooker. I would consider checking the control board for any signs of burn damage and then look at the clock unit to as these are normally the main components in the cooker that will stop it from working.
Good luck,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

SOURCE: control panel continously beeps with message to

Could be a faulty control as you suspect but also may be a bad keypad. If the "start" button has no effect I'm suspecting the keypad first.

the bimetals you checked, did you remove them from the circuit before checking? if all of the thermals, not going to a fan are closed, then you have either a control problem or an element. after self cleaning usually the HIGH LIMIT thermal opens, and is a simple replacement. but if all are good then you need to look deeper. there should be an tech sheet in the control top or control panel area that can help you trouble shoot.

F5 - E1 Self clean latch will not lock

1. If door latched:
  1. Disconnect power from unit.
  2. Check wires and connectors from control to door switch, then from door switch to control. If no damage to wires and all connectors okay, proceed to step C.
  3. Replace door switch.
  4. Re-apply power.
  5. Press and hold any key down for 1 minute to clear F5 failure code from memory. F2 will appear. Press CANCEL and observe for 1 minute to ensure operation is correct.
2. If door not latched:
  1. Disconnect power from unit.
  2. Check wires and connectors from control to latch switch, then from latch switch to control. If no damage to wires and all connectors okay, proceed to step C.
  3. Repeat steps A and B for door switch.
3. Measure door switch (door open = switch open small low voltage terminals). Replace switch if defective.
4. Measure latch switch (unlatch = switch open, CAUTION - oven light contacts are closed). Replace switch if defective.
5. If corrections are made in any step, reconnect power to control. Press and hold any key for 1 minute to clear R failure code from memory. F2 will appear. Press CANCEL and observe for 1 minute to ensure operation is correct.
6. If failure remains, disconnect power and replace control.

Note: Applies to all F5-E... codes.

Got error code F9 while oven cleaning in process. What does this mean?


An F9 error code on a General Electric (GE) oven indicates that the oven's electronic control system has detected a problem with the automatic door lock.
The automatic door lock mechanism prevents the oven door from being opened when the oven is set for "Clean" mode.

The malfunction may be a jammed door lock mechanism, a pinched or broken wire, a faulty lock switch or a fault in the control board itself.

9 out of 10 times the lock switch has failed.

STEP # 1 - Disconnect power to the oven!!

  • Step 2 Open the oven door. Remove three screws from underneath the oven's control panel. Lift the control panel straight up to disengage the mounting pins on the top corners of the panel, then tip the panel toward you.
  • Step 3 Inspect the door lock mechanism. The mechanism is in the lower left area of the space behind the control panel. Rotate the cam on the door lock mechanism to be certain it moves without binding. Replace the mechanism if its mechanical parts do not function properly.
  • Step 4 Inspect the wires that connect the door lock mechanism to the control panel. Check for pinched or broken wires. Check for wires with frayed insulation2_bing.gif. Repair wires as needed if defects are present.
  • Step 5 Locate the six-pin connector on the door lock motor on the right end of the door lock mechanism.
  • Step 6 Rotate the cam on the door lock mechanism to the unlocked position. Test the resistance between Pin 3 and Pin 1 of the door lock connector with the ohmmeter. The resistance should be 0. Replace Lock Switch 2 of the door lock mechanism if the resistance reads other than 0.
  • Step 7 Rotate the cam on the door lock mechanism to the locked position. Test the resistance between Pin 3 and Pin 2 of the door lock connector with the ohmmeter. The resistance should be 0. Replace Lock Switch 1 of the door lock mechanism if the resistance reads other than 0.

    Contact a certified GE appliance repair facility if the source of the F9 code has not been discovered. Troubleshooting the oven with the electric power turned on is a job for a certified technician.

    What is the reset button for GE Profile JTP18?


    For me the solution was in the temperature sensor. The Locked light kept flashing and the door locking mechanism kept cycling when the door was shut or if I just held the oven light switch in the closed door position. After replacing the control panel I still had the same problem. Next I turned off the breaker and then took off the wire covers on the back of the oven and disconnected the temperature sensor. I then checked the continuity of the sensor which was fine. With the sensor still unplugged, I turned the breaker back on and the panel said locked but the locking mechanism was not cycling. With power still on to the oven I connected the temperature sensor. It worked. All I had to do was press the clear button on the touch panel and everything was fine. I turned the breaker back off and reassembled the oven. Hope this helps.

    "door lock" light stays on and oven won't work


    On mine, I was able to take of the face plate and unscrew the metal locking arm from the motor. Once i wiggled the locking arm away from the locked position I was able to open the door. Once i opened the door, the little motor which controls the locking arm automatically rotated to the unlocked position and cleared teh "locked door" message on the control panel.

    LOCKED DOOR (but it's not!) GE JKP85


    bob, sounds like the door lock cam is making the door lock switch. Either the switch actuator stuck in or the cam failed to home. The cam has 2 funtions, one is to position the lock hook in the door and the other is to tell the board whether the door is locked or unlocked. On a single or upper oven the assy. is behind the control panel. For lower ovens the assy. is behind the trim between the two ovens....Catriver..post back.
