GE spectra Gas Oven XL 44 : self clean mode door does not seal shut

When i self clean, and manually move leaver to right to lock door., house reaks of gas and I think i see smoke. upon investigating it does not appear the door closes completely or is fully sealed when self cleaning only . self clean leaver (when locked) and moved to the right is not complete to right, its sought of 75% there - not tucked into the right as it does to the left when not in self clean .

door seal well when in standard cooking mode , only problem is self clean, its almost like the lock leaver when slid to the right keeps the door from sealing .......................door does lock and cannot move leaver until oven cools

Is this a fix for a novice, im not too handy but can do anything under direction., i would like to fix myself - got laid off from my job three weeks ago

thank you to anyone considering to help

SOURCE: GE Spectra XL44 Gas Oven, flashing "Locked Door". Can't use oven or close door

I had the same problem happen tonight. I have an XL44 self-cleaning gas range. We unplugged it for several minutes and pressed 'cancel' a bunch of times--neither worked. We finally lucked out--opened the oven door and pressed a black button on the upper left side of the front of the oven. It turned out the flashing words and unlocked our door. Weird. There was nothing in the manual about this...

Ge xl44 after self clean cycle the door won't open and the display says "locked door" flashing.


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.

I don't remember how to use the self cleaning feature


Remove everything from the inside of the oven, lock the door if your model has a latch handle that you move from left to right to lock the door, then set the oven selector switch to clean.

DCS gas oven locked


I let the door stay open, hold the switch closed with my finger, activated self clean. Let it run for a minute then hit cancel, the stove heating element shut off and the locked door blinked for 5 seconds then finally stopped. Back to normal.

Oven wont turn on.


I tried several times to get my oven to work and nothing seemed to help. After downloading the manual from this site, my husband locked and unlocked the oven door several times very hard and it knocked something in place and now my oven works. I hope it works for you.
