GE Wall Oven: Display says "BAKE" but relays won't engage.

 

From our tech support conversation:
  Tech Support: Is the door closed or open?
  Tech: Closed.

  .... 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. :woot:

Some of the older KitchenAid/Whirlpool built in wall oven must also have the door closed before they will heat.
