Try turning the power off at the fuse or circuit box and then with it off open the door!
If no then turn the power on again and try to open the door!

There may be a section in the user guide too!
I am not there to give hands on diagnoses.


But I can give you a good service that is nation wide!
A&E Factory service .
They answer 24/7 to make appointments!
And have a reasonable service charge of $75 around our area

Remember though, if the unit is 10 years old or more it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are much more efficient and pay for them selves in only a few years!

I have a ge spectra self cleaning oven the door does not lock when cleaning process begins it flashes locked and starts beeping but hook does not move into the lock position. I tried to unplug oven ho


If your GE Oven will not lock during the self clean cycle count yourself lucky. If it will go through the cycle then let it self clean and just make sure no one opens the door while it is hot. Most ovens fail locked and there are several possible faults - one of the two switches may have failed, the oven temperature sensor may have failed, the motor that drives the lock may have failed (most likely your issue), the plastic gear may have stripped. There is not a manual lock or unlock over ride and to unlock the oven manually you have to take the stove apart which is difficult when it is locked.

Lost instructions - I have my oven cleaning how


Typical oven self clean cycle is 3 hours. Oven needs to cool down to under 550 degrees before door will unlock. Download a use and care manual at http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/

DO NOT KNOW HOW TO USE SELF CLEAN ON OVEN?


Hi April,

Without a model number, I'm shooting in the dark but I'll give you basic instructions that fit for most ovens, OK?

First off the door has to be locked PRIOR to cleaning. Look around the top of the oven door, there should be a handle (for mechanical models). Rotate this handle from the left to the right to lock it. If there's no handle, that means your oven locks the door by itself when "Clean Mode" is selected.

Now, at the control panel, select "Clean". At this point, you may have options on the length of time it should clean, select 3 hours and hit "Start".

There ya go! Hope this helps. If not, DON'T RATE THIS SOLUTION! Just write back and provide the model number, I'll give you exact instructions with that. Deal? Cool.

Hello,

You will need to allow oven to cool, the temperature is one thousand degrees plus while the oven is cleaning. Until the oven cools it will not open, this is a safety caution. If it will not open after it is totally cooled, it may be stuck, try pushing on the door or pulling it out a bit while trying to move the lever.

Always consult the owners manual when using the cleaning mode on your oven. Be sure it is fully cooled before cleaning any residue out of oven area.

Hello Friends Creek.
Welcome to Fixya
You said, you used the self cleaning selection on my Admiral Designer Series gas range. The oven went through the complete cycle of 3 hours. You then unlocked the door and was able to open the oven door no problem. Later on you went to use the oven, pushed the bake button and the lock light would flash. And you could not get past that to get the oven to come on.

You did the right thing to turn off the electricity and then turned it back on.
Did you wait 5 minutes before turning the power back on?Or just flick it off and on?
You said, the lock light still blinked.
But did it lockup again?

Please send me the model and year of your range.
