Question about GE Profile JTP18 Electric Single Oven
GE Built-in oven model JTP15
Went to self-clean oven. After hitting the proper buttons to start, the door locked, but nothing happened in the way of self cleaning. Turned off the oven breaker for an extended time (days), but when I reset the breaker, still flashing "Door Locked."
I took off the panel and managed to force the latch to unlocked, but not entirely opened. The locked signal still is flashing and I can't seem to get any further than that.
Once before this happened, and the repairman hit some combination of control keys and managed to reset the oven.
• What keys did he press?
• Should the latch motor turned when I tried to rotate it (it didn't)?
• Could the latch motor need replacement?
• Any ideas what to do next?
The problem may very well be in one of the micro switches on the self cleaning motor bracket. These switches control the electrical flow to the heating elements. In the owners manual there is/should be a chart that lists the unlock and safety combinations. This would be your best source of information.

I have had the same problem! Door locked flashing after the attempt of the cleaning cycle. After taking the oven appart to get the door open, I began troubleshooting. I discovered that the door lock motor failed in the locked position. I opened up the motor and found the magnet inside was cracked! The coil winding for the motor was also open. Hope that helps! While your waiting on the new part you can trick the oven by using a zip tie on each of the two lock motor micro switches to hold them closed and remove the lock lever. The oven will work just fine.

I solved this problem on a JTP18 oven. I found that the door lock switch was showing that the door was locked even when it wasn't. The switch is open when the door is actually locked. The switch is closed (or should be closed) when the door is unlocked. I found that the switch had failed and was open even when the door was unlocked.
I used a cable tie to force the switch closed as a test. I would recommend verifying that the switch has failed and getting a new switch.
Note that to access the door lock switch you must remove the control panel. On my JTP18 the door lock switch is to the left of the door lock motor.
