Question about GE JKP15 Electric Single Oven

Oven door won't unlock

We have a GE JKP15QA1WW oven. We set the self cleaner last night. This morning the oven door wouldn't unlock and has a message that the door is locked. We've turned off the power, but that hasn't helped. The manual isn't useful either. It's built in, so we can't get to it to be able to open anything up. Any suggestions?

    This house has a 20 year old Litten oven. We tried turning off the power for 20 minutes. We tried redoing the clean cycle for an hour, then letting it cool. The door is STILL locked!

    Set the oven to clean and now it's still locked and the lock light is remains on. Tried resetting the clean oven for a shorter period of time and it is still in the lock mode.

Used self cleaning process on my oven yesterday and today the oven will not turn on, we keep getting message to unlock the oven door even though it is. What can we do?


The oven gets extremely hot during the self-cleaning mode... the door switch might have got stuck in locked position, or broken in locked position (to be replaced), let's hope it's just stuck...which you'll need to work the mechanical lock-unlock latching back and forth to hopefully unstick....and if that doesn't work just re-run self-cleaning process but this time let the oven cool completely before unlocking the door. Hope this helps.

Hello.

Please apply the solution this way!

To close an oven door when it's in the locked position and the door is open, press and hold the oven door light switch while following these simple steps:
  • Program the oven to self-clean.
  • Wait 20 seconds.
  • Cancel self-clean.
  • Wait 20 seconds.
To self-clean your wall oven, follow these simple steps:
  • Remove the oven racks.
  • Set your oven control to "Clean."
  • Select a cleaning time or choose a cleaning level: light, medium or heavy. For typical cleaning needs, we recommend that you select a cleaning time of three hours or choose the medium setting.
  • Select "Start." (To set a delayed start, see your Use & Care Guide.)

Note: For safety reasons, the oven door will remain locked until the oven cools down. When it is sufficiently cool, the door will automatically unlock.

Thanks for using fixya.

How do i reset the locked oven door to unlock it?


I have had that problem once.I turned off the breaker to that oven over night and then in the morning the door opened as it should.I found a GE page that is below.It may help.


http://www.geappliances.com/search/fast/infobase/10000161.htm
Some models with oven Set and Temperature knobs must have those knobs set in the Clean position before the latch can be moved to the left. If your door won't unlock, try turning those knobs back to Clean, then slide the latch over.

I started the self-cleaning process on my GE electric oven last night. The process is complete but the oven door will not unlock. It sounds like it keeps running and running.


Hi
You can start the self cleaning cycle again and then stop it after 15 minutes, then let the oven cool for sometime and check if the door opens again, if it wont work then press the CANCEL button for 20 seconds. If the issue returns then you have to take a screw driver and open the latch. After this the latch mechanism should be replaced as it is bad. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Oven Door Locked


the oven door does lock during self clean, otherwise it will not work. however, the door is supposed to unlock after the oven has cooled. if it is still locked, turn the oven to self clean and wait about a minute and then hit cancel and see if the door unlocks. if not, there may be a probelm with the door lock mechanism.
