JTP56 Self Cleaning issue

When I set up the ovens for self cleaning, the process begins and the doors lock - then they unlocked themselves - and lock again. This continues locking and unlocking until I figure out a way to make it stop (don't remember what that is). They never self clean. We have replaced the front panel but that did nothing. Now, my wife is cleaning the ovens and the panel starts flashing "locked" although the doors are not locked. Any help.

    I've bailed to GE Service call. Coming Monday. I'll let you know. BTW, the model number is LTP56WA3WW. At this point I'm too tired to fight GE products. Hopefully, never again! Thanks for your help.

    One more thing. Got an F9 error code yesterday and basically can't use the oven now.

    So, OK (Good English). The GE Rep comes and blames me for everything. Tries to make it look like they're "experts" and their oven is a finely tunes NASCAR engine. Told me I had something "goofy" going on (must have learned that in advance rocket science class). Told me I would need a 3rd new Control Panel (replaced twice and have a spare in the garage). Then he went onto imply that the panels that I had might not be Genuine GE Parts since he didn't know where I got them although they had all indications of being from GE. Went out to his van and came in with a bill for $466. I asked him to switch out the panel with the one in the garage which he did. SAME PROBLEM. This didn't make sense to me. Why would you get the same problem. Both panels couldn't be equally screwed up, right?



    Embarassed to say, but it turns out that the last service tech (not GE because I despise them) had 2 wires switched. When the GE tech put the new one in, he just applied the wires the way they were on the original panel (being an "expert" I think he should have seen that right away). Anyway, $180 later everything is OK and turns out - probably - money well spent. I wouldn't have figured that out. Just wierd how it worked for so long that way. Know anyone who needs a new control panael? Got one cheap!



    Thanks for your help and response. It's nice to know that there is someone on our side. David

It sounds like you need to replace the door latch assembly. One of the switches on it is not working properly so the control is not getting the correct signal for the door latch position. It could be an oven control problem, but most likely it is the latch.
Post back with the complete model number from the oven if you need more help and I will answer as soon as I can.
Thanks, Mike

Used self cleaning process on my oven yesterday and today the oven will not turn on, we keep getting message to unlock the oven door even though it is. What can we do?


The oven gets extremely hot during the self-cleaning mode... the door switch might have got stuck in locked position, or broken in locked position (to be replaced), let's hope it's just stuck...which you'll need to work the mechanical lock-unlock latching back and forth to hopefully unstick....and if that doesn't work just re-run self-cleaning process but this time let the oven cool completely before unlocking the door. Hope this helps.

SELF CLEAN - FRIGIDAIRE OVEN


I JUST CALLED FRIGIDAIRE AND GOT INSTRUCTIONS FOR SELF CLEANING:

1. TAKE OUT THE RACKS UNLESS YOU DON'T MIND THEM TARNISHING
2. TURN THE "SELECTOR" AND/OR "OVEN" DIALS TO THE LOCK (OR CLEAN) POSITION
3. PRESS THE "COOK TIME" BUTTON
4. SET THE CLOCK TO 2 OR 3 HOURS (I.E., "2:00" OR "3:00"), DEPENDING ON HOW DIRTY THE OVEN IS
5. PRESS "START" BUTTON
6. YOU WILL HEAR THE MOTORIZED LOCK MOVE INTO PLACE; WAIT ABOUT 30 SECONDS, THE DOOR SHOULD BE LOCKED AND CLEANING WILL BEGIN.
7. CLEANING WILL STOP AFTER THE TIME SELECTED (I.E., 2 / 3 HRS) AND THE DOOR SHOULD AUTOMATICALLY UNLOCK

Hi lost the manual..need to start self cleaning


Hello,

An electric oven is a great oven choice because of the advanced self-cleaning feature often available on certain models. A self-cleaning oven uses high temperatures to clean crusty baking spills and splatters and free its owner from having to use harsh chemicals to clean his oven. The following 4 steps lay out how a self-cleaning oven works.

Step 1 - Setting the Self Cleaning Mode
Depending on the style and brand of oven you own, you start the self-cleaning cycle by setting the oven's operating dial to "Clean," a function that can be as simple as setting a timer knob or pushing one or two buttons.

Step 2 - Cleaning Cycle
Once you have set the self-cleaning cycle, the oven coils-both lower and upper--will begin to heat. These self-cleaning ovens are protected from high oven temperatures damage by heavy insulation installed in their walls and door during the manufacturing process.

Step 3 - Automatic Door Lock
When the oven reaches a pre-determined temperature, the lock on the oven door engages, preventing anyone from opening the door until the oven temperature has cooled.

Step 4 - Removing Residual Ashes
Once the cleaning process is completed, including cooling, you can then remove the residual ash by wiping the bottom oven surface with a damp cloth or sponge.


Hope this helpout

Ge oven door locked


You oven is locked because it is self-cleaning. Some how the handle got moved and it initiated. You may need to let the oven finish self-cleaning. Usually, it can take about an hour to complete the process. Afterward, the oven will beep when done and your oven can be opened. Good luck.
