GE monogram double oven display getting extremely hot
I have a mongram stainless steel double oven and when I use the top oven the stainless display (where he knobs are) gets extremely hot. Any thoughts? We ran the self clean cycle today and the fan is still blowing but i cannot touch that panel because of the high temp.

Usually the knob type controls uses the bulb for temperature regulation. There is usually only one adjustment available - otherwise the thermostat has to be replaced. - that dial with the temperature graduations on it. the whole unit - the bulb in the oven is connected to it.

F9 is a problem with the oven door lock circuit. If the door is locked, it's probably a bad switch that tells the oven it's locked. If the door isn't locked, it's probably a problem with the lock mechanism.
A common problem on many built-in GE ovens (you don't say if yours is built-in or free standing...) is air circulation in the control panel. The fan that keeps the panel cool either stops working or gets clogged with dirt/dust and can't move any air. This causes the panel to overheat and can cause all kinds of odd problems and error codes. If you have a built-in, check to make sure the fan is working and the mesh screen behind it is clean.
Failure to clean code
I have two Monogram ovens but they are not adjacent to each other top and bottom but are separate in different areas of the counter. I did the self clean for both ovens for the first time and one oven had the F9 error code about 1 hour and 45 min into the clean and the other did not sound a code.
I believe this is because it takes a while for your oven to cool down (the cleaning cycle uses a very high temperature to burn up the grease and food). The timer is how long it takes before it will be cool, at which time the oven will unlock.
