    When the stove finished the self cleaning problem the door locked light remained on. The door is not locked - I can open it, but I can't get the door lock command to go away. I trued flipping the breaker and waiting with no results.


     I don't have the instructions because I am renting the house - can anyone help??

My self-cleaning oven has been on for 2 1/2 hours. Is that too long? If so, shouldn't it turn off automatically. Please advise.


If the model number you listed this question under is correct, the Clean cycle time NORMALLY takes about 4 hours and 20 minutes. You can adjust the cleaning cycle time between 3 hours and 5 hours and 59 minutes, using the HOUR and MIN pads. Once the cleaning cycle is complete, and the oven temperature cools to a safe temperature, the latch can be opened.

These instructions are listed on page 24 of the owner's manual. If you no longer have an owner's manual, you can obtain a FREE copy at managemylife.com. For your convenience, here's a direct link:

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

GE JBP79 door locked, no led readout after self clean


Hello- Control is about 250$. Could save 100$ by installing yourself, but the popular "self-destruct" cycle can cook other switches and what-not. Find a tech and inquire up-front if completed repairs are too high, they keep parts, you pay trip charge.- Hope this helps- ED

off.
5. Once the oven is completely cooled, remove ash with a damp
cloth.

Self cleaning cycle


Between 3 and 5 hours. Most likely 3 hours unless yours has the adjustable setting for cleaning, then you can clean longer.
