SOURCE: Our GE Profile JTP18 keeps flashing "door lock" since we ran a self clean

It was a "reset" switch in behind the control panel that went off when the self clean cycle increased the temperature in the area behind the control panel got too hot. After flipping the breaker, and then flipping it back on the oven finally unlocked. I pulled the control panel off and pushed the reset switch. Everything fired back up great. I just won't use the Self-Clean ever again.

SOURCE: Ge wall oven blinking door locked for days

The switch inside the door lock mechanism is stuck down making the unit think it is still locked.  the switched is located next to the hook that locks your door.

SOURCE: "Door Locked" flashing on GE Oven JTP15 - can't unlock

The problem may very well be in one of the micro switches on the self cleaning motor bracket. These switches control the electrical flow to the heating elements. In the owners manual there is/should be a chart that lists the unlock and safety combinations. This would be your best source of information.

Oven will not unlock after self clean


Unfortunately, the high temperature limit sensor probably failed during the self-clean cycle. The oven control unit will not receive the signal that the oven is cool enough to unlock the door without the sensor.

If the oven is cool, you can try unplugging the oven for a while and then see if the oven unlocks after power is restored. Pressing the Cancel button several times (or pressing and holding Cancel, depending on the model) may also work. Sometimes, starting a new cleaning cycle and then stopping it (and waiting for the oven to cool) will work.

However if the sensor has failed, the above steps are unlikely to work. You can try to move the lock manually. On some models, you can use a bent coat hanger to slide between the oven door and the frame and push the lock over. On other units, you might open the back panel and rotate the lock mechanism cam.

The oven will not work until the high temperature sensor is replaced. Sometimes the lock mechanism fails and that is what needs to be replaced. If the oven works, then look at replacing the lock motor.

I hope this helps. If your oven is under warranty, contact GE for the repair. Please add a comment with the model of your unit for specific information on the parts you may need.

Electric range surface elements not working after self clean cycle.


It sounds like it is broken. You can bypass it by connecting the 2 wires together. This should be fine until you replace it. They aren't that expensive.

No power, door locked


there are 2 thermal switches within the component area in front of the fan of the oven, they open and close like a switch at certain temps,if one of these go bad (stays open after oven clean cycle)and oven cools then it wont let power back to the unlock motor,you can access these switches and bypass them to test them,if lock works then merely replace that particular switch

We are using self clean feature. continuous beep about 20 minutes into cleaning screen shows F# locked door and beeps nonstop. what can we do to stop beeping but still proced with self cleaning?


F3 is a bad oven temp sensor. The sensor fail F3 code will appear if during self clean that it senses temps above 915F, or there is an open / short in the temp sensor. The only thing you can do is replace the sensor. Just getting the oven door open can be a real pain as you have unlatch the oven door lock to get to the screws that are in the top lip above the oven door so that you can change the sensor. Depending on model you may have to reach through a burner to manually unlatch the oven door lock or remove the side panel of the oven to manually unlatch the door lock. On most units It will not continue to self clean with an F3 code detected. Once an F3 code is detected the ERC shuts off power to the bake and broil elements so that it does not catch fire from a run away temperature condition.

Oven door will not lock to clean


hi, these two codes together are signaling a EOC failure. the electronic oven control has failed and you will need to replace the EOC/clock. it is unable to initiate any commands because, it in a frozen state.

You can try to reset this control by unplugging the entire unit for 5 minutes. if the control continues to not reaspond to your commands, replace the EOC.

please rate and god bless:)

GE Elec oven JT952-30" blinks the "lock" after self-clean


Try unplugging power cord or trip circuit breaker, to cut the power to the appliance, then wait one or towo hours for the oven to cool down completely.

If the door stays locked, then there is a fault, probably a faulty temp probe that had blown because of high temperatures generated on self cleaning, or a defective control assembly. In that case you will need to call a technician to take apart the oven and fix the fault.
