Question about Kitchen Ranges
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.
Kick the **** out of it. the front window will break then you can reach inside and unlock it. lead by experince, of my wife

This just happened to me today. Wait for one hour for the oven to cool, When it has cooled the lock light will turn off and the lever will release
