My oven door won't unlock after self cleaning

We purchased our home in July 2005 and it came with a Maytag Range Precision Touch Control 500 Electric Smoothtop. Model #MER5755QAB

I cooked a turkey in it last weekend and the juice/grease was so smoky I had to stop the process. It was very messy inside and after I cleaned up what I could, I set it for self clean. It would not take the first few tries but eventually did.

After the cycle was complete, the lock light will not turn off and the door will not unlock. All else works - clock, stove etc. I have followed the troubleshooting steps in manual, unplugged the unit and shut off the breaker. No results.

I am certain it is the wiring/computer mechanism in the back panel that needs to be reset. I have opened that up and am afraid to tamper with it and make things worse. There is no obvious RESET button but I hate to pay $75 for someone to come out and press a button.

Admiral electric range with self cleaning oven


Hey there gcato1, your problem is actually a protective feature designed to prevent you from getting burned. The self cleaning feature runs at extremely hot temps. Until the temperature reaches a safe level, the oven door will remain latched. Be patient and the problem will solve itself.

Maytag range model mer6750 - I tried to open the oven door too soon after a self cleaning cycle Now door won't open and fault code F9-2 appeared. What to do? THANK YOU


Try unplugging the oven from the electrical power. May release the lock, which is held in place by a tiny micro switch. If not and while the electric is still off or the oven is unplugged, use a bright light flashlight to look through the slot where the lock is in the oven, not in the door.
You may be able to use a thin blade screwdriver to move the lock to the release position. Check the angle of the lever. A slightly bent lever handle also can cause this type of condition.

If all else fails, remove the access panel on the front of the oven to access the locking device and release it. May have to disconnect the wires to the lock which will allow door to function but not during any self cleaning modes.

F9 Door Lock Warning Check door lock circuit or Replace Clock
F-2 Oven temperature sensed by electronic control Replace the clock/relay board.
Here is the part you need to order.

We have an Amana Easy Touch Control 500, the pilot is on but oven won't heat up. We also can't self-clean because the door won't lock or sometimes it locks and won't open. I suspect the...


Hi there,
Most likely the door for your kitchen range has a sensor that is not allowing it to heat up because it detects that the door is not closed.
I would suggest you consult help from a certified technician by the manufacturer of your Kitchen range that way they would also be able to check other possible faults on your kitchen range and replacement parts would be 100% compatible.

You can also check the services that these guys offer:

Hope this helps!

Kitchen range cleaning


Use Glass cook top cleaner by Weiman. For stubborn burnt on food use a scraper or razor blade and hold it at and angle almost parallel with the top of the stove top and scrape off gunk.

Self cleaning MAytag Gemini GAS oven


A wonderful feature is that the ovens self-clean with the press of a few buttons. Only one oven can be programmed to self-clean at a time. Remove the oven racks. Turn off the oven light and close the door. Press the "Clean" button and then press "Auto Set" to automatically clean the oven for 3 hours. Press the "Auto Set" pad again to set the oven for a 4-hour clean cycle, or press the button one more time for a 2-hour cleaning. The oven locks when in cleaning mode. When the oven is finished cleaning, the word "Cleaned" will be displayed on the control panel, and the oven will remain locked until the oven has cooled, which takes about an hour. To cancel the self-clean cycle, just press the "Cancel" button. Simple!
