SOURCE: 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.

The switch inside the door lock mechanism is stuck down making the unit think it is still locked.  the switched is located next to the hook that locks your door.

I can't get my GE range to self clean, I keep getting a F91 error whenever I try to clean.


Unfortunately, the F91 error indicates that the door lock is not functioning or the signal that the door is locked didn't get to the control unit. The range will not begin the self-clean cycle if there is a chance that you could open the oven door when the oven is dangerously hot.

First try cycling the power by unplugging the range (or turning off the circuit breaker). Next check if the lock has engaged. If the lock doesn't engage, check if the mechanism is bent or binding. Next check the wiring to see there is damage that will prevent the communication between the control board or the door lock. Check for corrosion at the wiring harness connections.

If the error happened after doing a self-clean, I'd suspect the door lock hadn't released. That can be related to a damaged over-temperature sensor or the lock itself. If the range has been self-cleaned before, it's possible that the lock was broken after forcing the door to open after that self-clean cycle.

You may need to replace the lock, the wiring or the control board. Please add a comment with the model of your range for a parts diagram. If your range is under warranty, contact GE.

I hope this helps.

F9 error code appears within two hours of self clean cycle


F9 error code on GE ovens is usually caused by a problem in the door lock/latch system for the self clean. You state it happens about 2 hrs into the clean cycle. My guess is the the control is not sensing that the door is actually locked. Could be several reasons. Bad door lock motor, Bad switch that senses the door is latched, or is some cases the main control board could have a problem and is just not reading the door is locked. You need someone with the right knowledge to trouble shoot which part is actually bad since it could several different problems.

Oven will not unlock after self clean


Unfortunately, the high temperature limit sensor probably failed during the self-clean cycle. The oven control unit will not receive the signal that the oven is cool enough to unlock the door without the sensor.

If the oven is cool, you can try unplugging the oven for a while and then see if the oven unlocks after power is restored. Pressing the Cancel button several times (or pressing and holding Cancel, depending on the model) may also work. Sometimes, starting a new cleaning cycle and then stopping it (and waiting for the oven to cool) will work.

However if the sensor has failed, the above steps are unlikely to work. You can try to move the lock manually. On some models, you can use a bent coat hanger to slide between the oven door and the frame and push the lock over. On other units, you might open the back panel and rotate the lock mechanism cam.

The oven will not work until the high temperature sensor is replaced. Sometimes the lock mechanism fails and that is what needs to be replaced. If the oven works, then look at replacing the lock motor.

I hope this helps. If your oven is under warranty, contact GE for the repair. Please add a comment with the model of your unit for specific information on the parts you may need.

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.

How to self clean


Depending on the condition of the oven, it could take up to 4 hours.

A couple things to remember is: (1) Make sure you do not turn the light on inside the oven. The clean cycle should disable it. (2) Lock the door if it does not lock itself. (3) Do not open the door during the clean cycle.

Remember the self cleaning temperature is extremely high. Do not allow children in the area while doing it.
