Question about GE JBP68 CleanDesign Electric Kitchen Range

Open Question

The cleaning handle for the self-cleaner was in the far right position. When the cleaning cycle was stopped, the handle would not move back to the left. When the handle was able to be moved back to the left, the latch would not move with it. So, the handle or the latch was broken off. The latch will move right with the handle, but will not move left and won't stay in the closed position. How do I open the top of the range to fix the latch so the oven will close?

Hey there gcato1, your problem is actually a protective feature designed to prevent you from getting burned. The self cleaning feature runs at extremely hot temps. Until the temperature reaches a safe level, the oven door will remain latched. Be patient and the problem will solve itself.

SOURCE: Whilrpool Self Cleaning Range Door won't unlock

try this 1. Verify error code by pressing and holding CANCEL/OFF key for 5 seconds.
Momentarily (less than 5 sec.) press CANCEL key again to remove error code
display.
2. Press and hold any key for 1 minute until F2 E0 code is displayed.
3. Cancel F2 E0 error code.
4. Program and start the clean mode. Observe to see if door locks. If it does not,
inspect the locking mechanism from the solenoid to the latch pawl and door to
find the cause of the problem. If the door is not locking, then 1 minute from the
start of clean, the F5 E1 code will again be displayed. Steps 1 through 3 will
have to be repeated before another clean can be started.
5. Once any mechanical problems with the latch mechanism have been corrected,
program and start a clean cycle (after, if necessary, clearing F5 E1 error code)
to ensure proper operation of the door lock. Immediately cancel the clean mode to observe proper operation of door unlock

SOURCE: Can't Get My GE Profile XL44 Self-Cleaning Gas Range to CLEAN ! ! ! ! !

I also have a XL44 (GE JGBP90) and I can't figure out how to latch the door. When I press Self Clean, the display asks me to latch the door, but I don't see a lever. I think it might involve lifting the range, but I don't want to force it. Any ideas?

SOURCE: Ge wall oven door will not open

If you can not open this door, then the problem probably is that you stopped the clean cycle before it was finished. Restart the cycle, and set it at the minimum of 3 hours, and then when it is finished, it will release the latch that locks the door. I had this problem last night, and after the cycle was finished, the door latch was released. Hope this helps.

Take Care

Brush bar stops rotating when I recline the upright part beyond 45 degrees. Brush bar rotates but if I move the machine too far away, increasing the angle it stops. All cleaned out etc


There is a switch in the ball which is activated as you pull the handle back from the upright position. The lever that activates the switch pivots as the handle rotates backwards. Try to determine if this lever could be broken or mislocated somehow..

Drive not working on my hover sweeper handle seems very loose


How to Change Actuator on Hoover Self-Propel vacuum Cleaner - Step by Step This is a notorious problem for the Hoover WindTunnel Self-Propelled Models. What happpens is that the handle of the vacuum that controls the transmission is controlled by an actuator arm that is attached to a cable that runs down through the machine. The poor design of this self propelled system is design in such a way that if you pick up the vacuum using the handle (this is natural way to do it, I'm guilty of this as well), it puts too much strain on the actuator arm that controls the self-propelled mechanism, and causes the nut, washer, and screw to strip right out of the actuator arm. This explains why your handle is so loose. You may verify this by looking at the gap between the upright body, and the lower agitator housing, right where the vacuum pivots when you step on the handle release pedal. You should see when you move the handle up and down that the cable and nut are the only parts moving, and you should be able to see where the nut did sit inside of the actuator arm before it was stripped. The good news is that this is a relatively inexpensive part, and the repair is really not that difficult.

I will explain step by step, and include pictures so that you may see how to replace the part that's broken.
Always be sure your vacuum is unplugged from the electrical outlet before performing any kind of service!
Tools and materials:
Torx bit or driver size T-25
Flat blade screwdriver
Phillips screwdriver
Actuator arm – Hoover part number 43143046

Here's the picture of the part that probably needs to be replaced.
hoover-self-propel-fix-7-300x132.jpg
Step 1. Place your vacuum cleaner upside down with handle resting on the floor and brush roll housing resting on a work bench.
Remove 4 screws from rug plate and set rug plate aside.
hoover-self-propel-actuator-fix-1-300x225.jpg
Step 2.
Remove power drive belt, brush roll belt and brush roll.

hoover-self-propel-actuator-fix-2-300x225.jpg
Step 4.
Remove 6 screws as shown. Also remove duct hose cover and small plastic section that was under brush roll in upper left corner.

hoover-self-propel-actuator-fix-3-300x225.jpg
Step 5.
Place vacuum right side up on top of work bench with handle all the way back. Using a flat blade screwdriver; gently pry the top cover away from the bottom housing in the area shown by(#1) arrows. Leave the 2 adjustment knobs(#2) in place.

hoover-self-propel-actuator-fix-4-300x225.jpg
Step 6. If the self-propel adjustment cable HAS NOT broken away from the actuator arm, proceed as follows; mark the position of the cable(#1) in relation to the cable retainer with a black magic marker to avoid having to readjust the cable position. Remove the screw(#2) (usually a Torx T-25 size screw) and cable retainer. Next, using a flat blade screwdriver; slide the ‘C’ ring (#3) off the metal post. Bend the metal bracket up off the post just enough so you can lift the damaged actuator up and off the post. Slide your new actuator arm back over the metal post. Slide the ‘C’ ring back over the post.Lock the self- propel cable back in place with screw and retainer. Test to ensure the power drive is adjusted correctly; CAUTION, YOU ARE ABOUT TO COME VERY CLOSE TO MOVING MACHINERY, NO NECKTIES, NECKLACES, LOOSE SHIRT TAILS,UNACCOUNTED FOR TOOLS OR CLUMSY FINGERS ARE ALLOWED FOR THIS NEXT STEP!!! Reinstall the power drive belt, plug your vacuum cleaner back in and turn it on. Check to make sure the handle is in the neutral position; observe that the power drive is NOT moving. Push the handle slightly forward. You should see the power drive wheels move in the forward position. Pull the handle back, you should see the power drive wheels move in the reverse position. Some finer adjustment may be necessary.
If the power drive cable has broken away from the old actuator; just try to get the new actuator arm as straight as possible. Using the handle and while observing the cable moving back and forth through the retainer area; move the cable all the way forward, then pull it all the back, try to gauge where the middle of the forward and reverse position would be and lock the cable down. Perform testing procedure as in previous paragraph. Again, some fine readjustment may be necessary.

I need an owner manuel for Caloric Range Model # EST 345 I can'g figure out how to run the self cleaning oven cycle.


you might try the following, although it is the instructions for an old model, it may be relevant;

"The actual self-cleaning process is initiated by a simple 5 step procedure: 1. Set the range clock to time of day. Note: on models not equipped with an automatic oven timer, the self-cleaning cycle is preprogrammed for a 21/2 hour cycle. Use Steps 3, 4 and 5 only. 2.Establish the length of cleaning time by:
A. Setting the start time. Press and turn the start dial of the automatic oven timer clockwise to the desired starting time. B. Set the stop time. Press and turn the stop dial of the automatic oven timer clockwise to the desired stop time. Max time is 3 hours miniumum 1/12 hours. 3. Set the oven selector dial on the control panel to "Clean" 4. Set the temperature control dial to "off". If you temperature control dial has a "Clean" position, then set the dial to "Clean" instead of "Off". 5. Remove oven racks, broiler pan and broiler grid from lower oven. Close and lock the oven door by moving the latch lever as far right as it will go - into the locked position. If the lever is accidently dislodged restore it to the locked position. Otherwise, the self-cleaning process will not take place. Shortly after the cleaning cycle has begun, the oven temperatur reaches a degree in excess of the normal broiling temperature. The red "Clean" light will come on and the clean cycle will start. In a few minutes the door lock lever, which you have placed in the locked position, will automatically be secured to prevent the oven door from beging opened during the cleaning cycle. This latch remains locked until the clean cycle is complete and the oven temperature reduces to normal baking and broiling temperaturs. NOTE: Prior to self cleaning cycle operation, the oven and surface lights must be turned offed. The upper oven can be used."

I have never used a self cleaning oven.i have already put oven cleaner on the inside and let it stand for awhile is this right? god I don't want to blow up


You DO NOT use a oven cleaner with a self cleaning cycle. Wipe out the oven cleaner as instructed on the can. Oven cleaner is better than self clean cycles anyway. Most self clean cycles eventually cause oven control problems.

I have an old(over 20 nyears) free standing magic chef model No. 177-31DB2 range. I put it on the cleaning cycle and everything seemed to be working well. But then it seemed like there was alot of smoke so...


WHEN THE DOOR IS LOCKED ON A SELF-CLEANING RANGE, AND THE TEMP GETS ABOVE 400 DEGREES, IT LOCKS THE LATCHING ASSEMBLY SO YOU CAN'T OPEN THE DOOR AND GET SCORCHED. IF YOU FORCED THE HANDLE TO TRY TO OPEN IT, YOU BENT THE ARM OF THE LATCHING ASSEMBLY. IN ORDER TO RELEASE THE LATCH,
ONLY IF YOU FORCED IT TO THE OPEN POSITION, YOU MUST FORCE IT BACK TO THE LOCK POSITION TO STRAIGHTEN THE ARM.THEN IT MIGHT RELEASE.

IF YOUR RANGE HAS A LOCK BUTTON THAT NEEDS TO BE
PRESSED TO SLIDE THE LATCH TO THE LOCK POSITION,
YOU WILL HAVE TO SET ALL CONTROLS BACK INTO THE CLEAN POSITION AND PRESS THE LOCK BUTTON TO RELEASE THE LOCK ON THE LATCH ASSEMBLY. YOU SHOULD HEAR A BUZZING OR HUMMING SOUND WHEN THE BUTTON IS PRESSED.

Hotpoint range door doesn't unlock after the clean cycle.


It is possible that the lever has been bent somehow. If you can lift the top of the oven as if you were cleaning it. look at the lever mechanism, move it to the other position and push it back carefully, to bend it back. I have seen this happen a lot, people lean on the oven, the lever is in the open position and it is pushed a little bending it so when it is moved to close it doesn't go far enough to release it. I am assuming you have waited for the oven to cool down before you tried this first right?
