Question about GE JKP45 Electric Double Oven

1 Answer

Locked after self clean cycle

I have a GE double oven model JKP54GOP and after running the self clean cycle, the top oven has remained locked 24 hours later. I turned off the circuit breaker but the door remained locked. The "locked" indicator also doesn't go away. I can remove the door by lifting it out. I tried to move the lock arm but is it firmly stuck. Is there a way to release it? Is the problem electrical or mechanical?

Thanks for your help,

Steve

F9 error code appears within two hours of self clean cycle


F9 error code on GE ovens is usually caused by a problem in the door lock/latch system for the self clean. You state it happens about 2 hrs into the clean cycle. My guess is the the control is not sensing that the door is actually locked. Could be several reasons. Bad door lock motor, Bad switch that senses the door is latched, or is some cases the main control board could have a problem and is just not reading the door is locked. You need someone with the right knowledge to trouble shoot which part is actually bad since it could several different problems.

I need to clean my double ovens, but do not have the owner's manual. I know that I simple press the Clean button, but how long do I set the timer for?


You only need to reset the time if you want a cleaning cycle other than 4 hours. The default start is press Self-Clean then Start. Otherwise, press Start, type in a time between 3 and 5 hours (Min/Max cycle length) and then press Start. Do this with the number pad, do not press the Timer button. If you wish to clean both ovens, the second one will start when the first one finishes.

The Locked door light will go off when the oven has cooled below the Lock temperature. If you interupt the cleaning cycle by pressing Clear/Off, the door will remain locked until the oven cools.

I hope this helps.

Fan stuck on, door locked


Hello,"If actual over temperature condition occurred"
Look for welded relay contacts. If this happens,replace oven control (also called clock or ERC).
IF NO OVER TEMPERATURE condition occurred: Look for high resistance connection or any other cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit.Check sensor, sensor harness and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control .Replace sensor if found defective.Check door lock switches.
REMEMBER: Oven control (ERC) measures resistance of sensor circuit, not actual oven temperature.

Thanks

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.

Enter model number here to find assembly diagrams and parts.

Oven remains locked after self cleaning


I ended up paying an independent appliance repair man $149.00 to fix my problem. However the "fix" also includes the fact that I can never lock the oven again.
