My oven started acting up last night and started turning off after 5-10min no errors no beeping nothing just turned off. you could turn it back on and it would work but turn off again. then in the middle of the night when oven was cool and had been off for hours, the oven started beeping and showed a F9 error code.

today i took the top off and tested the latch and everything seemed to move fine. i also checked the continuity of the wires and when in both locked and unlocked position there was continuity all the way to the control board.

i cleaned the terminals on the lock switch and plugged oven back in and tried doing a cleaning of the oven. after 5 min the oven started beeping and i couldn't clear the code without unplugging the oven.

the latch seems to be working fine and locking when hot and unlocking when cooled so i'm not sure what the error could mean. i don't want to buy a new latch assembly if it something else. and i'm not sure if control panels for my oven are available anymore.

thanks for the help.

my oven is a GE J BP90G W1BB

For your F9 means that the oven's electronic control system has detected some problem with the automatic door lock. For this you can follow the following steps:
Step 1: Disconnect the power from the oven
Step 2: Open the oven's door. Remove the three screws that are underneath the oven's control panel. Now, Lift the control panel straight up to disengage the mounting pins on the top corners of the panel, then tip the panel toward you.
Step 3: Now, check the door's mechanism by rotating the cam on the door lock mechanism to be certain it moves without binding
Step 4: Check the wires (which you have done) but check foe its frayed insulation. Repair wires as is needed.
Step 5: On right side of the door mechanism, find the six-pin connector of the door lock motor, unlock it by rotating it, and now test the resistance between Pin 1 and 3, it must be zero and if it isn't a zero, then you will have to replace the switch 2 of door lock
Step 6: Do the same between pin 2 and 3 and of the resistance is not zero, change switch 1 of door lock

If you are not comfortable doing all of it or you aren't sure, you call a specialist for it rather than doing it by yourself.
