Oven Door Locks During Baking

The lock on wall ovens and ranges is designed to be used during a self-clean cycle only. If your oven has a manual lock, do not manually lock for other functions.

If your oven has an auto lock it, should only engage during the self-clean cycle. Should the oven lock during a bake cycle, press the CLEAR/OFF pad and allow the range to cool to room temperature. Once cool, reset it again to your desired baking temperature.  

If this does not resolve the issue, service may be needed. For service, please schedule an appointment with GE Appliances Factory Service.
