The following kashrus alert is from Koshquest.org and Star-K on January 1,2008.

GE MONOGRAM OVENS: We are not currently certifying the following GE Monogram ovens because of a software flaw in the Sabbath Mode. If you have already purchased the following ovens: ZET1SM, ZET1PM, ZET2SM, or ZET2PM (made from April 2007 to date) you will need to tape down the plunger switch, in the Sabbath mode, to be able to open the door on the Sabbath. (Remember, even in the Sabbath mode, one is never permitted to adjust the temperature on the Sabbath.) GE is working on a fix for these ovens.
