General Electric Profile ranges come with a self-cleaning oven. Some models of the GE Profile range have a motorized oven door lock, while others have a manual lock. Occasionally, an error may occur that misguides the range in believing the oven door is locked. When the error occurs, the control panel's display screen will read "Locked" and blink. Fix the error yourself without calling a repair technician.
