Question about Ovens

1 Answer

I was trying to turn the oven on to preheat and I kept getting the message unlock door on the display. I tried various things with the door as I had not locked it (self-cleaning type) but nothing would work so I had to give up and not use the oven. What could cause this and how do I fix it? It is not even a year since I bought it.

Hi if this is for sure less than a year, you should call the manufacturer for repair, it will be free of cost because it is still under warranty.

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.

Ran the self cleaning cycle and now the preheat light will not turn off when it gets to the temperature I set it to. It just keeps preheating. Example: I set the oven for 375. It seemed like it had been...


Sounds like a circuit board issue. If in Warranty, contact the manufacturer and have the controller replaced. A routine cleaning has noting to do with the normal operation of the baking or broiling function. Cleaning is disengaged after the door is unlocked and ready for general aplications.

I have a GE model JGBP335 gas oven. Since power outage about 3 wks ago it flashes "unlock door" when you try to preheat oven. The oven will not come on at all. We have tried unlocking and locking door...


Hi,

I would suggest set unit in self clean then cancel, this should rotate the lock and reset the lock position for you, apparently the unit was in a cycle when the power issue accrued and is unable to reset on its own. Try this and see if this corrects this issue for you.

Good Luck

My oven door is locked. It is not cleaning. I have tried turning off the breaker. help i have a turkey to put in the oven. Is there a sequence of buttons I can push to unlock it?


Hello,

Here are some solution on how to unlock the door of your oven ans do self cleaning below.

IF you can locate the model number tag (bottom left of door opening) you can look up the manual at www.geappliances.com
The only button on your stove that should make the door lock would be the clean button (self clean model) if that is pressed simply hit the clear/off or cancel key and wait for the door to unlock. IF the self clean option ran for an hour or so, you will have to wait for the oven to cool down before the lock can unlock (safety feature).
hope this helps you out please rate this solution it helps get better results for our customers like you

Here are solution on how to clean up your oven below.

Self Cleaning
  • 1 Remove oven racks and soak them in soapy water.
  • 2 Turn on your automatic oven cleaner; this usually entails locking the door and turning the function switch to "clean."
  • 3 Let the oven do its work;it will heat for several hours, charring off baked-on foods.
  • Fast Cleaning

    Model GBS307PDQ5: Oven preheated to 425 degrees.


    F3 usually means, that the oven temp. sensor is bad and one need to replace it.
    The fact, that it's not heating tells me, the fuse in the back also needs to be replaced (requires pulling out).

    Oven not heating KitchenAid KERC506HWH3


    Built-in ovens have a thermal fuse mounted in the back of the oven preventing the bake and broil from operating. In some cases this fuse will open after a self clean operation. In some models, the cooling fan turns off too soon, causing an overtemperature condition that may also cause the fuse to open. You will have to remove the oven and take off the back panel to gain access to this device.

    Oven door won't unlock


    I posted a message on 12/27 and since then I have contacted Jenn-Air again and as I mentioned above the two things they told me to do didn't work, so I looked at the schematic of the unit and there appears to be a motor that locks and unlocks the door. I have a service repair coming this Saturday and seems to believe the motor is bad. Trenatru are you getting an error message? I was told by Jenn-Air that there is a 6 yr. warranty on electrical parts so will try to keep you posted if that is the cause. If you havn't tried shutting off the power try that first. They said keep it off for a couple minutes before turning back on. If that try pushing on the door and hitting cancel twice. If those two things don't work, will let you know what I find out next weekend.

    PROBLEMS WITH FR ERROR MESSAGE APPEARING


    Mewood What part did you call "thermostat"? If you?re talking about the device which operates the oven temperature, your oven does not have such thermostats. It has two oven temperature sensors (one in each oven) and a control board (ERC). An error code "F4" will be displayed along with a beeping sound if the ERC determines an open oven temperature sensor circuit. It can be the sensor itself or the wires that connect the sensor to the ERC. The F4 message will not be displayed in the time of day mode. To get access to an oven sensor and wires, the oven has to be removed from the cabinet. Then you have to remove the rear cover. Then unplug the oven sensor and check the resistance across the oven sensor. It?s supposed to be about 1100 ohms at room temperature. If the resistance is incorrect, the sensor is bad and needs to be replaced. If not, check all the wires from the oven sensor to the ERC. If it is not the sensor and wires, you have to replace the ERC, but most likely the problem is with the wires and/or connections. Part number for ERC is 62965, part number for oven sensor is 62593. Gendos....post back.
