ge wall oven

10 posts in this topic

no model number, the sticker is badly worn off. the oven door lock keeps locking and unlocking. As it does this the oven lock is light up on the display, i replaced the door lock about two months ago for the same exact problem so I'm sure this one is out again. My question is why does this keep happening?

Well that didn't make sense. The cam on these normally has 2 microswitches, one of which tells it to stop turning...

Any idea how old it is? Is this a wall oven? Can you get a picture of the oven?  

I had a wall oven doing this due to a bad connection on the molex plug on the back of the oven. I thought it was a bad control since all the switches were working, and the switches didn't stop the lock motor, it just told the control to stop the motor. I was sure it had a bad control so I replaced that and found it didn't fix the  problem. After looking in to it more and spending some time on the GE tech line we found a terminal on a molex plug that pulled out of the plug.
