I had a look in the manual for your GE JPB84 oven. The most likely cause of the self cleaning process not being able to start, eg, door does not lock, etc. seems is that the oven has not cooled completely.
According to the GE troubleshooting website during self clean--
With most GE ranges, the oven door will not lock if it is warm from baking.
Be sure to let the oven cool down before attempting to latch the door for the self-clean operation.
Because of the heavy insulation around our self-cleaning ovens, it may take several hours for the oven to completely cool down.
After latching the door, the lock light may not glow until the cleaning process has been going for up to 30 minutes. This is because the lock mechanism does not engage until the oven has reached cleaning temperatures (approximately 600 degrees and higher). ......
Not sure if this is the cause of your problem. Please post a comment after checking it out. I will try to check for other causes. I also read on one of the repair forums that some GE ovens develop a problem with use of Self clean feature because the oven temperature can go very high (higher than during normal operation) and damage the controller board which is not well insulated. Cannot confirm if this can apply to your model. In any case something to keep in mind.
