Question about GE JRS04 Electric Single Oven

1 Answer

GE JRS04BOW3BB Will not turn on.

I have a GE JRS04BOW3BB single door oven which will not turn on (heat up). All of the buttons on the front of the control panel seem to work except for the time button. Once I select Bake setting and select the Temp, I select Start. The oven just sits there with 100 degrees displayed on the control panel. The elements do not heat up at all. Any ideas? Is there any way to have it do a self diagnostics?

Turn the broil on high by itself wait a couple min. and see if it comes on. if it does the your bake element needs to be replaced or you may just have a burned wire where the bake element plugs in. just remember to turn the breaker off to the oven before trying to pull out the element

Oven light stays on all the time even when oven off.

Does your oven have a switch on the front panel for "oven light" or "light" ? If so, pushing it may turn the light on and off. Also, there may be a pushbutton on the oven's front edge where the door fits. The button comes out when the door is open and turns the light on. If you have one of those, the switch could be broken or defective. If the button is missing or damaged, it could leave the light on all the time.

Ge profile oven lock button won't go off

  • 1.Press the "Clear/Off" button on the control panel to reset the oven. This will clear the lock setting and unlock the door.

    2.Allow the oven to cool to room temperature to avoid turning the lock on again during this heating cycle.

    3.Reset the oven to the temperature you require to finish cooking by pressing the correct temperature control on the control pad.


  • 1.If your GE Profile microwave won't turn on, unplug it, then plug it back in. A power outage may have occurred due to a power surge. Check your home's fuses and circuit breakers.

    2.Set the clock of your GE Profile microwave. Certain models will not operate until you set the clock. Select the "Clock" key and type in the correct time.

  • 3.Hold down your microwave's "Off" button. You may have accidentally hit the control-lock feature on your GE Profile microwave. Hold down the "Off" button for three seconds to turn the lock off.

  • 4.If the sensors of your GE Profile microwave are not working correctly, remove the food from the machine. If the sensors detect food-surface temperatures over 200 degrees Fahrenheit, it will not work properly until the area cools down.

  • 5.Contact GE Support if you are unable to resolve the issue on your own. Call the GE Support hotline or browse the help library on the GE website. You can also schedule a service visit on GE's website.

    My GE Profile Advantium Microwave Oven runs (and heats) continuously. The only way to stop it from running is to open the door.


    Sounds like a defective door interlock switch or a broken switch mount. If it's not a problem with the door switch or door switch mount you will need to replace the magnetron and the touch pad as well.This will fix your issue.

    Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.
    Thank you for contacting

    How do we unlock the oven door! Accidentally pushed a button in front. We have no manual or SS#. Oven was in house when we bought it. We unplugged it to turn off and was able to open the door. Please...

    IF you can locate the model number tag (bottom left of door opening) you can look up the manual at
    The only button on your stove that should make the door lock would be the clean button (self clean model) if that is pressed simply hit the clear/off or cancel key and wait for the door to unlock. IF the self clean option ran for an hour or so, you will have to wait for the oven to cool down before the lock can un-lock (safety feature).
    Good luck with this!!

    My start button on my kenmore built-in oven w/microwave won't wor

    my kenmore model number 911-47699100 oven doesn't work. Everything except the oven and broil works--cleaning, all timers, start button, etc. All that happens when you push start is about every 30 seconds, two relays can be heard making and breaking kind of like a click then immediately a clack. No error codes appear. Replaced sensor but that didn't work. Any help would be appreciated.

    First press and hold the cancel/off button for 10 seconds.
    If that does not work you have a bad thermal switch due to excessive heat buildup. Possibly a bad fan motor.
    The 2 thermal switches are located on top of the oven behind the control panel.
