Customer Question
We cleaned our GE...

We cleaned our GE with self cleaning mode. Door lights stays on and a clicking sound. Oven will not turn on

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

2-4 years

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I turned the breaker off and back on hoping to reset it. It sounds like the door latch is still trying to open or close. The door will open and close
