GE gas stove. I cleaned my GE gas oven the other day and now whenever I want to use the oven the "clean" light comes on and I can't use the oven. How can I fix this? Rosalie

First try killing power to the unit at the breaker for a few minutes then restore power this may reset the control if not try the following:

Follow the steps below to reset your control:

With the door open, locate the door jamb switch on the face of the oven.

It will look like a small black post or dowel. Push it in until the oven cavity light goes off, indicating that the oven believes the door is closed.

While you hold the door jamb switch in this position, complete the following steps.
Press the Clean pad, wait 10 seconds.
When the cycle initiates, press the clear/off or cancel pad immediately to cancel it.
Wait 10 seconds for the display to clear.
The door should unlock,

If this does not work you will probably want to call a tech out because it will need to be examined to see if the board has failed or the lock mechanism has failed.
