Look for a microswitch connected to the lock mechanism at the back of the stove. The switch is probably broken.

The F2 typically means an overtemperature conditions:

Peace
ngfam1 at your service.
Try turning the power off at the fuse or circuit box and then with it off open the door!
If no then turn the power on again and try to open the door!

There may be a section in the user guide too!
I am not there to give hands on diagnoses.


But I can give you a good service that is nation wide!
A&E Factory service .
They answer 24/7 to make appointments!
And have a reasonable service charge of $75 around our area

Remember though, if the unit is 10 years old or more it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are much more efficient and pay for them selves in only a few years!

If you ran a self cleaning cycle and now the door won't open you may just need to wait a while. The door locks to avoid anyone from opening it as the over heats up to around 700 or more degrees to burn anything off. Sometimes what will happen however is that the heat will get to intense and cause the door lock mechanism to jamb. If the door doesn't open for you after a good few hours or so you can try unplugging the oven for a while to try and reset it. If not though you will have to go through the front panel and go down to manually unlock the door. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful. Keep me updated on the outcome too if you wouldn't mind. Good luck and glad I could help.

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.

What can cause a microwave to come on when the door is opened, never seen this before and is very dangerous. it happens with or without time set.


The most likely problem is a faulty door switch, you can buy new switches, but you'd have to follow the diagram here to identify which of the 2 switches you need to replace: See Part # 26

GE microwave oven model#JVM1441BH04 when you close door on switch activates and oven comes on. Only goes off when door is opened.


HELLO.

the problem your are experiencing with your microwave oven is a failed interlock switch.
Be careful when closing your microwave door. Slamming the door too hard is one of the main reasons that the interlock switch is damaged.

Slamming the microwave door shut can easily blow the microwave fuse, but they can also blow due to problems with the interlock switches.
A microwave oven will not function until the fuse is replaced.

Instruction on how to replace fuse on microwave.

1. Unplug the microwave from the electrical outlet to prevent electrocution. Place the microwave in a well-lit area to be able to locate the fuse.

2. Use a screwdriver to remove the outer cabinet of the microwave, and follow the power cord to the fuse. The fuse is located 2 to 3 inches within the microwave and is attached to the power board.

3. Observe the fuse to determine if it is blown. Blown glass fuses will produce burn marks on nearby surfaces, or the internal fuse wire will be black and melted, while ceramic fuses show no outward appearance of being blown.

4. Determine if a ceramic fuse is blown by testing it with an ohmmeter. If the ohmmeter reads zero ohms, your fuse is not blown. Other readings on the ohmmeter show that your fuse is blown.

5. Replace the blown fuse by popping it out of its holder, and snapping a new fuse in its place. Tighten the fuse clips by squeezing them together with your fingers.

6. Replace the outer cabinet of the microwave, and plug the microwave back into the electrical outlet. Test the microwave to see if it's working properly.

thanks.

I need a new door for this microwave. I have been looking online for hours and can't find just the door. Can anybody give me a website that sells just the door for this micro? Thanks....


The door is available at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

If the model number you listed this question under is correct, the part number for the ENTIRE door is WB56X10585.

Is there a reason for replacing the entire door? You can purchase individual replacement parts if only a single part on the door is broken. The first three sites on the list have helpful exploded view diagrams to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.

The most common thing that fails on these doors is the door handle. If only the handle is broken, the door handle can easily be replaced on most microwave ovens by removing the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The following link explains how to access and replace the door handle:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3696942-microwave_oven_door_handle_replacement

The average cost for a replacement handle usually averages about $20 - $40. Replacements may be purchased at the websites listed in the link I provided.
The part numbers for the handle on this model are (2 pieces):

WB15X10119
WB15X10120

If you have any questions, please post back with your and let me know. I hope this helps you

The lock will not release after cleaning


This is GE's trouble shooting advise:

Range - Oven Door Won't Unlock After Self Clean

The Oven Door has been Locked Accidentally:

  • If no food or utensils are in oven, put it into a short self-clean cycle (1-2 hours).


  • If there is food in the oven, let the oven cool to room temperature and try to unlatch the door.


  • With electronic ranges there is a small chance that turning the circuit breaker off for a few minutes and turning it back on can release the door. latch to the "off"


  • Note: Do not force the latch at anytime!

Door Will Not Unlock After Cleaning:

On models with mechanical latches:
  • Once the oven is cool after a self-clean cycle (approximately 30-90 minutes), slide the latch over to the left.(Some older models have a latch release button that must be pushed in while sliding the latch over.)
Note: Some models with oven Set and Temperature knobs must have those knobs set in the Clean position before the latch can be moved to the left. If your door won't unlock, try turning those knobs back to Clean, then slide the latch over.

If the above suggestions do not work try the following to unlock your door:
  1. Disconnect power to range for 30 seconds.
  2. Reconnect power and see if door will unlatch.
  3. If door does not unlatch, and you do have food in the oven, wait for oven to cool completely and try again. If it still will not open you will need service.
  4. If door does not unlatch, and you do not have food in the oven, set the oven up to clean for 1-2 hours.
  5. Wait approximately 30 minutes and try to unlock the door.
  6. If the door unlocks, the control has reset itself and there should not be any other problems.
  7. If the door will not unlock or if you would like to schedule a service appointment, please contact GE Consumer Service at 1-800-432-2737 or schedule a service appointment on-line.
Note: Under no circumstances should you ever force the door or latch open.

Ge profile range door wont close


was the door removed during delivery? Hinges not being fully seated can cause this. also check to see if the lock is striking the door liner, it should line up with a slot in the inner surface of the door and not touch anything unless the oven is in self-clean

GE: E Profile Single Electric Oven Model: JSP40W0WJWW


First press and hold the cancel/off button for 10 seconds.
If that does not work you have a bad thermal switch due to excessive heat buildup. Possibly a bad fan motor.
The 2 thermal switches are located on top of the oven behind the control panel.

I have a GE Profile Microwave and the handle is broken....


I have the same issue. The Handle broke off my GE Microwave Oven (Model JVM1190SY 001). GE does not sell the handle seperately from what I can tell. I just ordered a new door. It's rediculously expensive. I tried to replace the handle with a nice drawer pull but couldn't find a size pull to match and I broke the plastic cover trying to get access to the screws for the handle, which is why I decided to buy the new door. Hopefully installation is not that difficult. This oven was manufactured in 2001, seems the handles have a 7 year life span.
