My GE oven one day decided to just stop working. All the lights on the display are light up (888 88:88, SET, DELAY, BAKE, CLEAN, DOOR,...) All the oven buttons are not responding. The cooktop surfaces are working. I've tried unplugging the stove for a couple of hours and then plugging it back in.

Re: GE Oven not working
you may need a new control board. if your stove is in warranty contact the manufacturer, if not and you are handy you can find a replacement online and install it yourself. just be sure to unplug the stove before you work on it. if you need help with this please contact me.

Usually, when an oven won't heat, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.
Unplug the stove. plug back in and program a short clean cycle. If this does not fix it is eithe the selector switch or the electronic control. Verifying the switch contacts with a meter is the only way to be sure. Eric

last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it. or try doing this 1. Turn the
clock selector knob to OFF
2. “Tweak” the oven control by turning the clock
selector knob slightly to the left (counter clockwise).

Simply set the Clock and Delay Start to the current time, then set the Stop Time ahead 3 hours. For example, if it is currently 8:00 then set the Stop Time to 11:00. The lights on the console will come on and the cleaning cycle will begin. At some point during the cycle when the oven gets hot enough, the lock mechanism is "fixed" and will not release until the cycle is complete.
