I have the same problem. GE repair man replaced the electronic control panel. If anything, the problem is worse. Does anyone know what ACTUALLY makes this range shut off as it gets up to temperature while baking? I don't really want to pay the repair man to fumble around debugging this.

    We have exactly the same problem. After reset by taking if off the power, its back again. Look forward to a solution.

    Mine appears to be fixed now. four parts were replaced. But I think two actually made a difference. One was the oven door gasket. Mine had a flat spot on the upper right corner that let oven heat out under the control panel. The other part was the fan assembly (WB26K10008 - Blower Tangential). For the past week I have been daily turning the oven on to temperatures around 325-350. And every time it has worked as expected.

    It seems to be fixed now, simply by improving the tightness of the oven door.

    I knew the fan was OK, so I checked the gasket on the door. I looked more carefully, and noticed there was hot air leaking out of the top end of the oven door, directly heating up the electronics panel and making it go crazy.

    Even when the oven was closed it left still quite a gap, such that I could easily slide a pice of paper through the gap of the oven door and slide it along the closed door, without any resistance. I noticed that the outer part of the oven door was already reaching its stopper position before the gasket on the inner part of door could make the seal. Increased the separation between the inner and outer door shells (placed washers under the two screws at the top of door). Now the gasket fits tightly onto the oven, and shuts the oven properly, it seems.

    Ran a lengthy test, and the electronics panel doesn't heat up, and, most importantly, the crashing of the electronics doesn't happen.

    Thanks for that hint!

Bake button doesn't work even after ignitor replaced

While unlikely, the ignitor in theory could have damaged the ERC (main oven control) it is more likely you have a bad keypad. Try pressing and holding bake and broil pads at the same time for 5 seconds and see if the display shows SF (will look like 5F). If it does, press the start button and try again bake again
