Question about GE JKP15 Electric Single Oven

1 Answer

GE Electric Single OVEN JKP15

Hi - used the self-cleanig feature on my GE for the first time in 7 years since new - after about an hour there was very loud pop/possible electrical short-out type of sound and the display went blank. The main circuit breaker was blown and now I am unable to even open the door to get a look inside or disassemble since the main saftely latch stays engaged since there is no power.
Once it cools I will flip the CB back on but I have a feeling it will just 'reblow'.
Any ideas on what this problem could be and how do I get the door open?
Thanks- Ken Cz

About 2 hours into the self cleaning cycle, F2 locked oven started flashing and the clear button would not stop it, even after repeated tries.


This means the oven has overheated and the controller is keeping the door locked either because it is still hot or it "thinks" it's still hot. There is a discussion of this at: fixyourboard.com/techzone/ovens/f1_error/f1_error.html
that will help you understand it.

What should I use to clean the tough spots in the oven


Use Easy Off only.
Self cleaning leads to malfunctioning parts.
It is a nice feature that does not work well.

Hot point electric stove


The link below is from Yahoo Questions. The self cleaning can take a number of hours. It is best to do it on a cool day and when you can open windows to let in fresh air. Never wipe down the inside of the oven with an abrasive or strong cleaner. This will damage the surfaces, and the self clean feature will no longer work properly.
