Problem with oven door latch

After Hurricane Ike, when the electricity came back on, I noticed the oven door latch was in lock posistion and the door would not close because it would hit the door latch. I guess the door latch locked on it's own with the surge of electricity but did not lock the door in place. I have never used the self cleaning oven, so the door latch has never been used. How can I get the latch to unlock itself?
Thank You, Noahlene

Hello noahsark,

Welcome to Fixya

You said, after Hurricane Ike, when the electricity came back on, you noticed the oven door latch was in lock position and the door would not close because it would hit the door latch. You guess the door latch locked on it's own with the surge of electricity but did not lock the door in place. And that you have never used the self cleaning oven, so the door latch has never been used. How can I get the latch to unlock itself?

Was the range get under water?
If so there may be some shorts in it or faulty electronic parts!

Try turning the range off and then turning the power off at the breaker for 5 minutes.
This is should reset the system in an electronic range.
If it works , great .
If not you may need service to diagnose your electronic problem.
Let me know that it works!!!!!

Send me the Brand and mode;l number.

Please remember to leave a rating when you finish.
Huuum

I started a self clean on my oven, and then shut it off, the door opened, now it will not close, seem like the latch is in the lock posistion. help


For an oven self cleaning problem, the first thing to check is the door lock motor and switch assembly. Every self cleaning oven door has a locking mechanism to prevent the door from being opened during the cleaning cycle. An oven self cleaning problem often happens after a clean cycle has been run. If that happens, more often then not the lock assembly will need to be replaced. The door lock motor and switch assembly, over time, fail due to the high temperatures that are encountered during the cleaning cycle.
Here is the part to order.

All parts come with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

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.

Oven door lock does not unlock, I turned on the self clean mode and then changed my mind and turn it back off about 3 minutes later. But it does not unlock. The lock light is blinking.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. There is an over-temperature switch built into the electrical panel of the oven. Resetting this switch might solve the issue.

To reset it: Turn off the power. Open the door (if door is locked, turn the power back on and gently try pulling the door every few seconds as the locking mechanism cycles until it is unlocked). Remove the 3 screws below the control panel (screws point upwards, with the head just inside the oven). Pull off the face of the control panel. Let it dangle by the wires so that you have access to the space behind it.

Within the electrical enclosure exposed by removing the control panel, look for a small silver and black device with 2 wires attached to the back. The device is about .5" wide by 1" long and is attached with 2 screws to the sheet metal on the bottom of the electrical enclosure.


Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Oven not working -makes a buzzing sound when turned OFF!


You just need to adjust your door latch assm. Try putting a little oil on the latch and arm. The sound you hear is the solenoid trying to pull the latch arm all the way back to lock the door. Even though it is pulling the arm back and the door locks it may not be all the way back. A little lubrication will fix the problem.
