GE Profile JGB97 Self Cleaning Oven Controls won't work

All of a sudden, the digital oven controls wouldn't work any longer. I can't activate the bake, broil, timer settings, or even change the clock. There's still power to the controls because the clock is still correctly working. The only response I get is when I hit the "clear/off" button, it beaps. All other buttons are inactive. I tried unplugging the unit hoping it would somehow reset itself, but no help. Is there maybe a fuse or something seperate from the clock that works these controls? And if it's something like the heating element, then why wont' the oven timer even activate?

    My range that is having the same problem is a Jenn-Air (made by Maytag) Model #JGS8850ADW. We have tried everything the other person has, including taking the control lock off, but none of the buttons even seem to be working...only the cancel button makes a noise when you touch it???

It sounds like the controls have been placed into a lockout mode. If your model is a JGBP79 do the following:
1) Press the BAKE and BROIL HI/LO pads at the same time for 3 seconds until the
display shows SF.
2) Press the SELF CLEAN pad. The display will show LOC OFF.

Now here is where the directions are kind of confusing, I will give it as they say it:

3) Press the SELF CLEAN pad again. The display will show LOC.
4) Press the START pad to activate the control lockout feature and leave
the control set in this special features mode.

Seems to me if its locked already, you would just do steps 1 and 2. And if you wish to lock it do steps 1 thru 4.

The LOC on messsage appears on the screen when we go toturn the oven on. NEED the OVEN. What could we do to fi it?


The control lock has been activated. This feature is useful when you are cleaning the panel so that you don't accidently start the oven or the self-cleaning cycle. Try pressing Bake and Broil Hi/Lo together for 2 seconds (or a bit longer). SF should appear in the display. Then press Self Clean and Start. (When you press Self Clean the LOC message should disappear.)

Manuals for most GE appliances are available here: http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/ . Enter the model number and click Submit.

Self cleaning oven help


There is nothing wrong with cleaning a self-cleaning oven. Now, I don't have experience with your speicific oven, but I do have experience with other self-cleaning ovens. The self-clean function simply heats the oven up really hot. The actual temperature varies but the oven will get hotter than the hottest temperature setting. What happens is that when it get that hot it actually burns up spilled food and crumbs. sometimes in mine I even see small flames. The oven usually requires you to lock it as well since the temperature will be so high. Eventually you have to clean out the burnt "ashes" which are basically the stuff you get on food if you burn it. So the answer to what happens if you clean the oven is that you get a clean oven, nothing else. It won't hurt the oven at all. As a matter of fact even if you use the self-cleaning feature you will eventually have to clean out the "burnt crumbs" and such by hand anyway. So self-cleaning oven are designed to be cleaned by hand as well. And you won't hurt it by doing so even if you did it every day.

You have a problem that may be solved with my solution to the Dreaded F7 Problem. Even though you don't have a F7 error on the display the symptoms are all the same. You can find my fix at the following links.

I have shared this with more than 1550 folks and most report success. This problem often develops after a self clean cycle.
