If your oven has the control panel in the door, try this...

Open the top door and in the bottom right you'll find a flat cable that goes from the top door into the unit. It'll be just at the hinge.

Pull up on that cable and push it up into the top door. It will likely move just a little. Whilst holding that cable up into the top door look at the control panel and see if it begins behaving normally.

GE had a design problem with the connector on that ribbon cable that is inside the door with the control panel. There is no lock on the connector to hold the cable into the plug. It comes loose (just a little) and can give "probe light" error, "overtemp error" (on a cool oven), and any and all sorts of other unusual errors. The plug will even appear to be connected properly when only one or two terminals of the cable aren't making good contact.

It is poor design for a sliding card / cable configuration. The fix is to come up with a way of holding the cable into the plug. Since one or more connectors in the cable lose connection, some of the controls will be OK and others won't.

If you can "fix" the problem by wiggling that cable then you can have a repairman come out and rig something to hold the cable into the plug.

I took my double oven apart and used duct tape and it lasted a year. I used velcro and it seemed to work better. If it fails again I'm going to cut a couple of cable ties and glue them to the cable and plug to create a semi-permanent connection.

good luck

Whirlpool loc


From a google search the following is copied:

LOC is a control panel lock not a door lock, see below.

The Control Lock shuts down the control panel pads to prevent
unintended use of the ovens.
When the control is locked, only the CLOCK, TIMER SET and
TIMER OFF pads will function.
The Control Lock is preset unlocked, but can be locked.
To Lock/Unlock Control: Before locking, make sure the ovens,
Timer and Timed Cooking are off. Press and hold START/ENTER
until a single tone sounds and "Loc," a picture of a lock and
"START?" will appear on the oven display, about 5 seconds.
Repeat to unlock and remove "Loc" from display.

If the above does not work have you tried removing power from the uit for a few minutes to see if it will reset.

MY OVEN WON'T HEAT


Hello - Does any part of the range work? I would recommend verifying that a fuse is not blown or a circuit breaker tripped. Test the power outlet with a lamp, hair dryer, etc. Another questions, does "Loc" appear in the display if any button is pushed? The Oven Lockout feature automatically locks the oven door, prevents the warmer drawer and most oven controls from being turned ON. If so, press and hold CLEAR/OFF for 3 seconds. A beep will sound. LOC will clear. The "DOOR LOCKED" will continue to flash until the oven door has completely unlocked. Does the clock display "Sd" or "dddd"? If so, the clock is in sales demo mode. Press and hold the "BAKE TIME" button for 6 seconds to exit sales demo mode. If this does not prove to be successful, contact a professional to have EOC diagnosed and/or to confirm that there isn't a wiring failur

  • 1.Press the "Clear/Off" button on the control panel to reset the oven. This will clear the lock setting and unlock the door.

    2.Allow the oven to cool to room temperature to avoid turning the lock on again during this heating cycle.

    3.Reset the oven to the temperature you require to finish cooking by pressing the correct temperature control on the control pad.

  • 1.If your GE Profile microwave won't turn on, unplug it, then plug it back in. A power outage may have occurred due to a power surge. Check your home's fuses and circuit breakers.

    2.Set the clock of your GE Profile microwave. Certain models will not operate until you set the clock. Select the "Clock" key and type in the correct time.

  • 3.Hold down your microwave's "Off" button. You may have accidentally hit the control-lock feature on your GE Profile microwave. Hold down the "Off" button for three seconds to turn the lock off.

  • 4.If the sensors of your GE Profile microwave are not working correctly, remove the food from the machine. If the sensors detect food-surface temperatures over 200 degrees Fahrenheit, it will not work properly until the area cools down.

  • 5.Contact GE Support if you are unable to resolve the issue on your own. Call the GE Support hotline or browse the help library on the GE website. You can also schedule a service visit on GE's website.

    Oven clock no display and oven wont work any way to bypass clock new world cgk 21556


    These things are a pain! When you first power up a lot of New Workd ovens, they come up in AUTO mode and the oven won't work, so you have to take it out of auto mode and stop the clock flashing. I'm giessing that though your clock DISPLAY isn't working, the clock is and the oven think it is.

    There are 6 buttons below the clock display.To take it out of AUTO and stop the clock and oven thinking the display is flashing:

    Numbering the buttons from left to right as 1,2,3,4,5 and 6 (because they have silly symbols!) press the 4th button (a picture of a hand) you will hear a little click and the oven will now work. If you have to power the unit off for more than about a minute at any time, you will need to do this again

    if the clock is blank it's bad and you have to change out the clock assy. if that's your model number MEW5527B it says your part is
    WP74009198 and it's around 260 dollars but this must be an older wall oven because nobody has it in stock,you can go here,put your full model number in and go to control panel and look up your computer board or clock assy. same thing

    What does the sign "control lock" mean?


    Here is what the manual for your oven says about control lock.

    Let me know if you have questions.

    Control Lock
    The Control Lock shuts down the control panel pads to prevent
    unintended use of the oven(s). The Control Lock will remain set
    after a power failure, if set before the power failure. The only time
    it is not available is during the Sabbath Mode or Self-Clean cycle.
    When the control is locked, only the TIMER SET · START, TIMER
    CANCEL, OVEN LIGHT and CANCEL OFF, UPPER OVEN
    CANCEL / OFF or LOWER OVEN CANCEL / OFF pads will
    function. On double oven models, CLOCK SET · START will also
    function.
    The Control Lock is preset unlocked, but can be locked.
    To Lock/Unlock Control: Press and hold CONTROL LOCK for
    about 3 seconds, until “CONTROL LOCK” and a picture of a lock
    appear on the display. Repeat to unlock and remove “CONTROL
    LOCK” from the display.

    Your error code is for a stuck keypad. You can try pressing every button at random several times each to unstick.'
    When the control board is changed on these ovens the keypad assembly is supposed to be changed also.

    Oven Light won't shut off


    Amazing, I had the same problem, was told the same thing, even quoted the same amount!   There must be a playbook with stupid answers by repair people.  Anyhow, here is how I unlocked my oven:  "Press and hold the 'Lock' button for 3 seconds then let go and it should unlock in about a minute."  Hope this works for you.
