Hello there:
There are 2 ways to unlock these
the first is to unplug the appliance for 30 seconds then plug it back in then wait 30 seconds and repeat do this a total of three times then on the last time plug it in and wait 5 min and then press the unlock as usual
Now on the newer models you need to unplug it for a minimum of 1 hour to allow the internal resetting feature to reset the appliance fully then simply plug it in and wait 5 min and you should hear it unlock automatically or jsut wit the five min and then unlock it as you would normally do ok
Hope this is all very helpful please keep me posted on how this is going
Best regards Michael

Door will not open and oven will not shut off


The door latch will open after the shut down, therefore go to the home circuit breakers and shut off the power to the oven. Wait a few minutes and try to open the door. If still locked, reset the power to the on position and see if the oven rest and shut down properly and the door lock released.

What does the sign "control lock" mean?


Here is what the manual for your oven says about control lock.

Let me know if you have questions.

Control Lock
The Control Lock shuts down the control panel pads to prevent
unintended use of the oven(s). The Control Lock will remain set
after a power failure, if set before the power failure. The only time
it is not available is during the Sabbath Mode or Self-Clean cycle.
When the control is locked, only the TIMER SET · START, TIMER
CANCEL, OVEN LIGHT and CANCEL OFF, UPPER OVEN
CANCEL / OFF or LOWER OVEN CANCEL / OFF pads will
function. On double oven models, CLOCK SET · START will also
function.
The Control Lock is preset unlocked, but can be locked.
To Lock/Unlock Control: Press and hold CONTROL LOCK for
about 3 seconds, until “CONTROL LOCK” and a picture of a lock
appear on the display. Repeat to unlock and remove “CONTROL
LOCK” from the display.

GE JGBP80 oven shuts off and the locked door light flashes


That's awesome! I just found this site on Christmas day minutes away from family arriving and I had exhausted the manual for help. Under the troubleshooting section of the manual it lists "door Locked" light blinking as a problem with the only solution being - "shut the door." With three dishes in the oven that didn't help!

I took the advice of the site and wiggled the actual door lock on the inside of the oven and that didn't work right away either.

I had to trick the oven into thinking the door was shut by pressing the sensor on the right hand side in and then turn on the oven cleaning cycle with the sensor held down. After the lock activated and moved across with the door open, I had to hold down the door unlock feature and wiggle the lock as it unlocked. A little more complicated, but none the less it worked!

It must be a sensor inside the locking mechanism that isn't reading the lock being open - or something...

Lock light is on and do not know how to get it off


hi there,

the light is on because the door is not shutting correctly. check the door lock mechanism or the door gasket and make sure the the door is on its hinges. the door should go out.

if this still doesn't solve the problem, it's the light socket itself. i would recommend to have it replaced.

Oven shuts down


My mother-in-law's oven was doing the same thing. At first it was actually turning completely off which led me to think it was a loose connection on the circuit board. That turned out to be exactly what it was. I had to dismantle the front of the oven, remove the circuit board, and resolder the connections. The first time I did this I must have missed a few bad joints and that's when it started doing what you described (shuting off and showing lock door). I pulled it back apart and found a few more bad solder joints which I fixed; so far so good. This is of course one of those "don't try this at home" fixes but it least lets you know what is causing the problem.
