UNABLE TO USE MY BOTTOM OVEN DUE TO LOCKED DOOR INDICATOR
Locked door light flashing for bottom oven, I am unable to bake, broil or even self clean. I tried the GE tricks to clear the problem- open the door, press in the light button/door shut button, then press the clean button for 10 seconds, when cycle starts quickly press the clear off button- the cycle never starts. I checked the circuits involved on the sensor and lock switch connector, temperature probe reads 1100 ohms, voltage thru the correct limit switches and thermal switch--except that voltage at the door latch output pin is supposed to read -25VDC it is -11.81VDC instead, although the upper oven reads the same and does not have an issue.

Turn off breaker for minute or so if no contact repair man mcro switch bad or out of position. Did he try to pull door right after candle. The motor takes time to clear the hook from the latch. If so he probly bent some thing in the mech that latches the door or on the switch plate that holds the micro switch
Try turning the breaker off for 5 minutes and see if this resets the system. if not you may have a defective Control board and you will need to have a HANDS on tech to diagnose these parts to be sure! They will have the diagnose equipment !

I found I have this exact problem. Same bake preheat issue: I can bake if I set broil first. However, the oven doesn't work if I press bake first. The control board has already been replaced a couple times over the years. Is this another replacement??
I was wrong (I think). the baking element probably was burnt out as the repairman said. He replaced it and I thought selfclean still wasn't working. In fact, I think I just had to give the self-clean function more time. Also, I was judging by smell. We have become used to a bad odor during self clean which was missing when it was broken and still missing after the repair. Bottom line, the oven was clean after the baking element was replaced, sans smell.
