Jenn-Air S160 Jenn-Air Electric self cleaning oven (model S160) oven door won't open after I used the cleaning cycle. I don't have the owners manual to get instructions. Help. We've cut the power to the stove hoping it would unlock when we powered back up. Didn't work.

I did it by mistake. I tried to move the lever over and of course, it didn't open but went to restart. I hit the cancel button and then tried the door again and it opened. Yup, we all here feel likes dorks!

Thank you!

What is 15 year old Jenn air stove, model S 160 worth? It is in good shape and has just recently been checked by SEARS and operates fine. New racks, new knobs, and new broiler pan. Completely cleaned up. Looks like new!

There's a safety feature built in which will not unlock the door until the oven has come back down to a safe temperature after a cleaning cycle.

Self cleaning ovens


Perhaps it hasn't cooled down enough; or you may have to run the self-cleaning cycle again. The oven has to reach a certain temperature before it starts to turn the residue to ash.You may have interrupted its cycle.

It then has to cool off sufficiently to safely open the door.

Can not open the door of the self- cleaning electric Range after cleaning operation


Unplug the unit or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Plug the unit back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and gently try moving the door lock lever (is so equipped) or opening the door.
or
Set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for 15 minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever (is so equipped) or opening the door.
If these procedures fail to correct the condition, the lock must usually be accessed and moved manually to open the door.
Some model ovens require the oven door to be manually unlatched before the controls are returned to the OFF position or else the door may not be able to be unlocked. Check the owner's manual for proper operating procedures

Self cleaning instructions


If the model number is correct, the self-cleaning instructions are as follows:

1. Make sure oven door is closed and press "CLEAN".

2. "REMOVE RACKS" should be displayed. Remove all oven racks to avoid damaging them.

3. Select "CONTINUE" using the Quickset pads on either side of the control panel.

4. Set LIGHT soil level by entering "200" using the number pads for 2 hours cleaning. Select MEDIUM for 3 hours. Select HEAVY for 4 hours.

5. "CLEAN", "TIME", "LOCKED" and the cleaning time countdown will be displayed while the oven is cleaning.

6. "OVEN COOLING" will appear when the cleaning time is complete, but the oven door will remain locked until it is safe to open. (approx. one hour after cleaning cycle ends).

These instructions are almost verbatim on page 23 of your owner/operator's manual. If you no longer have a manual, you can go to managemylife.com and enter your model number under the "Manuals" link. Your owner and installation manuals are listed in a .pdf (Adobe) format that you can download or print for FREE.

If you have any questions, or if your model number is different, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

I need direction on how to start the clean cycle on my jenn air


CLEAN PAD
Use to set a self-clean cycle or a delayed
self-clean cycle. One press of the Clean
pad sets up an immediate clean cycle. A
second press of the Clean pad sets up a
delayed clean cycle.
• Clean oven
frame, door
frame (area
outside of gasket)
and
around the
opening in the door gasket with a nonabrasive
cleaner such as Bon Ami*. These
areas are not exposed to cleaning temperatures.
• Remove air grille.
• Remove oven racks. If racks are left in
during a clean cycle, it may impair function
and they will discolor. Turn off the
oven light and close door.
* Brand names for cleaning products are
registered trademarks of the respective
manufacturers.
TO SET FOR IMMEDIATE START:
1. Press Clean pad once.
2. Press the Auto Set pad for 3 hours of
cleaning time, press again for 4 hours
and again if 2 hours of clean time are
desired.
3. CLEANING and LOC plus the clean
time will appear in the display.
4. When the clean cycle is complete,
CLEANED will be displayed. LOC will
remain on until the oven has cooled
(approx. 1 hour).
5. When the oven is cool, LOC will no
longer be displayed and the door may be
opened.
6. Wipe out the oven interior with a damp
cloth. If soil remains it indicates the
cycle was not long enough.

TO CANCEL SELF-CLEAN:
1. Press Cancel pad.
2. If LOC is NOT displayed, open oven
door. If LOC is displayed, allow oven to
cool.

Thanks for using Fix Ya, Please take the time to rate this solution.

Jenn Air oven door won't open after clean cycle


Had this EXACT same problem the day before a party where I needed the oven for lots of baking.... Tried all sorts of things, was about to call a repair man- I FINALLY got it to open by following the first two directions for putting it into self clean mode (turned both knobs to CLEAN), then when it said to lock door I tried to move the lock lever and bam it worked! Give it a shot! Good luck! (:

This is not a problem. The cleaning cycle goes on for approximately 4 hours as I recall. it will unlock by itself when done. Read your user guide for troubleshooting tips. if you can't locate your copy, one is available on line at the Jenn-Air site

Jenn air s136 stove won,t self clean


You've probably already read pages 34 through 37 of the owners manual for this oven. We had this stove in the house we bought and the owner wrote in his own directions, which seem to work fine:

1. Turn knob selector to clean.
2. Turn temp knob to clean.
3. Close and lock door.
4. Push enter button and turn dial clockwise to desired time.
5. Push enter button again.

You've probably already tried this, but just in case I figured I'd pass it along.
