Question about GE JBP30 Electric Kitchen Range
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.
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.

1, Controloptionsmay be changedby se-
2. Currentoptionwillappearin thedisplay.
4. PressCANCELpadtosetthe displayed
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.
