Question about GE Profile PFIC1N Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator

1 Answer

Oven door no longer closes

After cleaning our GE oven (~10 yrs old), we realized we could no longer close the door. We could raise the door 3/4 the way up and but then it just stops.

I slid the oven door off the hinges and pulled the hinges out. They looked fine - no sign of any breakage/damage.

Can someone tell me how I might be able to repair this?

Thanks,

Sounds as if the hinges are no longer closing properly,its the only thing gonna stop door from closing, unless you can physically see something protruding from the door that would stop it. no t totally unheard of for the hinges to fail, especially after a self clean cycle

Is there something that is safe for me to spray/apply that will help loosen a door switch that sticks on a GE Advantium 120 Oven?


No, I would replace the switch. See this page.

Oven door won't close


if you look around under the handle or under the top of the stove on the front there should be thin lever. This lever is designed to lock the oven door closed tightly when you are activating the self cleaning oven feature. It is likely that someone accidentally lock the lever while the door to the oven was open. Simply find that locking lever return it to the unlocked position and your door should shut fine.

I was able to clear the locked door message, and get over working following steps above, but cannot get the lock mechanism to release, and therefore cannot close the door

Range - "LOC DOOR" flashes in the display

If "LOC DOOR" is flashing in the display of your range or oven, and the self-clean cycle has not been selected, follow the steps below to reset your control:

Motorized Switch
    1. With the door open, locate the door jamb switch on the face of the oven. It will look like a small black post or dowel.

    3. While you hold the door jamb switch in this position, complete the following steps.
    4. Press the Clean pad, wait 10 seconds.
    5. When the cycle initiates, press the clear/off or cancel pad immediately to cancel it.
    6. Wait 10 seconds for the display to clear.
    7. The door should unlock and there should not be a need for service.

I have an 1950s' O'Keefe & Merritt Gas Stove that has oven doors that will not completely close. Can you help or locate a manual? Thanks


if the springs are not broken , the hinges are bent down ( droping the door for 60 yrs). Its tricky to bend back the hinges back. Springs and parts are no longer avaliable but you may be able to match someting close for a spring if you have the old one.

Ge profile range door wont close


was the door removed during delivery? Hinges not being fully seated can cause this. also check to see if the lock is striking the door liner, it should line up with a slot in the inner surface of the door and not touch anything unless the oven is in self-clean

How to self clean


Depending on the condition of the oven, it could take up to 4 hours.

A couple things to remember is: (1) Make sure you do not turn the light on inside the oven. The clean cycle should disable it. (2) Lock the door if it does not lock itself. (3) Do not open the door during the clean cycle.

Remember the self cleaning temperature is extremely high. Do not allow children in the area while doing it.

Gas Odor and Oven Heating


The gas valve may be failing. The 'whooshing sound' you hear may be the gas valve closing too slowly when the oven cycles off or the cavity is filling with gas and igniting when the oven cycles on. The gas you smell may be an indication that the valve is not closing completely. This can be potentially dangerous if the oven fills with gas then ignites. I would not operate the stove any longer and shut off the gas to the stove.

Ge double oven


I believe this is because it takes a while for your oven to cool down (the cleaning cycle uses a very high temperature to burn up the grease and food). The timer is how long it takes before it will be cool, at which time the oven will unlock.
