GE Wall Oven: Display says "BAKE" but relays won't engage.
From our tech support conversation:
Tech Support: Is the door closed or open?
.... long conversation with measurements etc ...
Tech Support: I'd like to verify the functionality of the plunger switch on the door. Can you locate it?
Tech: Yes, that's what I'm holding in to "close the door".
.... Ka-Ching! ... Nooo!!!
Tech Support: Please physically close the door and try again.
Tech: The oven is heating!
TIME SAVING TIP ABOUT GE WALL OVEN:
If the control board thinks the door is open it prevents the heating element relays from engaging.
This is completely determined by the state of the 2 micro-switches in the LATCH MECHANISM.
(To cook switch #2 (top) MUST BE CLOSED, switch #1 (bottom) MUST BE OPEN)
The oven controller DOES NOT SENSE the PLUNGER switch!
Remember this to save wild geese.
