Question about GE JBP30 Electric Kitchen Range

Range Oven clean cycle problem

My J BP30B A4AD GE Range won't complete the self clean function. On most tries, after what appears to be a good start, the oven and clean lights begin blinking; the oven fails to heat. Once the oven began to heat nicely but then stopped showing an F2 error code. I have checked the oven door lock and am certain that I am moving the lever all the way to the right. Pursuant to the manual I have let the oven cool and unplugged the electricity before beginning again. No luck. What's next?

An F2 error is the oven temp exceeded 590 Deg with the door unlocked.

I know you have been troubleshooting the door lock issue. There can be a problem with the micro-switch actuating arm of the door latch assembly.
http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-+JBP30BA4AD+-%3d%3dei245065&PartID=245065

If the actuation arm is bent you will get the symptom your describing. You can attempt to bend the actuating arm "upward" on the microswitch. The curved end of the arm should be even with the curved latch swing arm hole end when properly adjusted.

The switch can also be failing electrically with heat but highly unlikely. You may end up changing out the door latch assy. listed above to correct the problem. I still believe you can just adjust the micro-switch and save yourself some money.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Scholtes FE46 and the door is locked. Also no clock/timer lights. Temp/function and oven work but is locked even though completely cold.


Here are a couple of things to try:
  1. Unplug the unit or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Plug the unit back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and gently try moving the door lock lever (is so equipped) or opening the door.
  2. Set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for 15 minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever (is so equipped) or opening the door.

How do you unlock the control locked function on a Maytag Gemini elec. range?


If its a self cleaning unit, try start the self cleaning cycle, then cancel it. If that doesn't work let the self clean cycle finish completely and it should go back to normal.

When trying to use either upper or lower oven, panel flashing "Control Locked." Won't work.


Try this:

ToChangeFactorySetDefaultOptions:

1, Controloptionsmay be changedby se-

LectingtheSetupOptions(0)padandthe

desiredoptionpad.(SeeOptionsbelow.)

2. Currentoptionwillappearin thedisplay.

3. PresstheAUTOSETpadtochangethe

option.

4. PressCANCELpadtosetthe displayed
optionandexittheprogram

The LOCK is option 4 change the OPTION from 4 to 9.
9 is the factory default settings.

This should work. However.... there is the possibility that the unit had performed a self clean function. If you just completed a self clean cycle it can but up to 1 hour AFTER the cycle before you can open the door or use the oven as the range must cool down and cycle a thermostat before it wil work again.

There is also the possibility that the door lock has not completely retracted. If you can get it to start a self clean cycle.... after 1 minute press cancel and the lock should retract. (I know you said won't do anything) I am hoping that after you reset the options from 4 to 9 that you might be able to do this.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Locked door on my GE Profile Oven (Range)


Amazing. I've searched across the web, and this "locked door" problem appears to be a DESIGN FLAW across the entire product line: if you run the self-cleaning cycle, it WILL trigger this problem and despite the suggestion of a wide range of "self-help" strategies, the only real solution is to pay for a service call (and then, it appears, paying for a new control unit and probably an additional service call to have it installed, and then more service calls if the same problem occurs). We have a JGB900BEF2BB GE Profile range, and of course we've run through all the self-help suggestions at geappliances.com and on a dozen other web sites like this one.

Whirlpool RF367LXS Ceramic Glass Range not working


Almost every time I run the SELF CLEAN cycle on my Whirlpool Self Cleaning range, it fails to function after completing the self clean cycle, even though it completes the cycle of cleaning and unlocks the door. What I do to solve the problem, I power off the BREAKER for the range at the main electrical panel in the house and wait 30 seconds, then power on....and the whole system works just fine until the next time I clean it. This has been a problem from the beginning. My theory is that the electronics get heated up and, like a computer, the system stalls out and needs a complete hard reboot. Good luck!
