Question about Thermador Ovens

Self cleaning lock handle does not unlock

I have an older (10-12 years) Thermador wall oven. The clock is inoperative. I set it to self clean, set the nonworking clock ahead, turned control knob to clean, raised the protective shield, and was able to lock the handle. Locked light came on, fan came on and it cleaned for 3 hours. Because of the inoperative clock, it never turned off. So I turned off the oven, moved the knob off clean and it shut down with fan running to cool down. Next morning, fan was still running, but oven was cool. Somehow got the fan to turn off, but when I press the unlock button, still cannot move the handle to the right to unlock the door. What can I do next besides use a hammer to smash the glass door!!!!!!!!

    Unplug power, wait one hower and plug cord back.

    Well, I tried that - it was a good tip, but unfortunately didn't work. I waited 1/5 hours, flipped the latch release switch and the handle still wouldn't move. Anybody else have a solution?

    After lots of searching, I found the manual. It is a Thermador Self-cleaning oven, Model MSC-19, Serial No. 695636. The manual does not offer any help to my problem except to flip the unlatch switch and move the lever.

Every self-cleaning oven is different. It's best to consult the owner's manual for the correct procedure for your oven. But often the steps are:

  1. Set the Start time for the time you want the cleaning to begin.
  2. Set the Stop time to a time 2-3 hours after the start time.
  3. Close and latch the oven door.
  4. Set the selector switch and/or thermostat to "Clean."

You will have to replace the control panel / timer. It could also be a case of faulty wiring. In any case, I recommend getting a professional to take a look.

The oven self clean lock handles have a thermo detector to protect kids from opening while in self clean mode. The actual switch is malfunctioning the only way to replace it is to open the top of the stove and you should be able to unlock the oven. also you should try to offer a make and model number so we can give the best advice.

Hi, It would be better to have the Oven's brand and model number to look at what and where exactly things happened...

THanks,

Unplug power, wait one hower and plug cord back.

That should reset the oven, if it does not, the oven timer control is clearly defective and should be replaced , you find parts here.

How do you clean 1993 thermador double ovens


you can't get parts for this stove anymore so i wouldn't use the self clean on it,use soft scrub to clean it it says not to use easy off on a brand new oven but at this point i don't think it would matter on a 20 to 30 year old oven,when you put a stove into self clean it gets up to 1000 degrees,the wire casings on older stoves break down as it is but with all that heat you can do some damage to the stove,even if you just bought a brand new stove using the self clean can damage the electronics in it,usually it will take out the computer board or clock assy. same thing,your clock is most likely broken on that anyway or something else could be wrong with it and most likely you won't get it to self clean but if you want to use it or try to get it into self clean go here and read from page 32 to 36 hope this helps you out but i would not put it into self clean

I have double wall unit Thermador oven. After self cleaning, the door can not open. Or may be I hit the panel lock , so the door is lock. How to unlock?


Hello April,

If any OVEN FUNTION is being used...
The controls cannot be LOCKED off...

So no... REQUIRES PUSHING 2 buttons & holding
for four (4) seconds... (not likely to be accidental)

The steps to Lock & Unlock are the same...
(see reference page (click here)
Thermador SCD302 Care And Use Manual Child Lockout

Touch and hold the COOK TIME pad and
the STOP TIME pad simultaneously for 4
seconds.

Likewise SELF CLEANING is described in great detail.
(double click this URL)...
Thermador SCD302 Care And Use Manual Page 29

ELSE...
Please contact THEM if you have questions or comments.
Phone: 1-800-735-4328 or reach THEM through their
website at www.thermador.com

Hope this helps

Cant unlock oven door


Hi, 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. 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.
*Note: 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.

(90s) Jenn-air single wall oven locked


The timer may think it is still in clean. The easiest way to try and fix this is to set another clean cycle and let it run all the way. Set it for the least amount of time that it will let you for example try a 15 minute clean cycle. Once it goes through it and turns off automatically it may release the lock, if not you will most likely need someone from service out.

I hope this helps

I turned on the cleaning switch for my self cleaning wall oven and now it seems to be finished but mthe door lock is still on and the oven keeps making a buzzing noise what do I do?


If the lock does not open after the oven has cooled down, then try this: First, unplug the range or shut off the circuit breaker for ten minutes. Plug the range back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and try moving the door lock lever or opening the door. Next, set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for twenty minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever or opening the door

Frigidare Self Clean Oven


I JUST CALLED FRIGIDAIRE AND GOT INSTRUCTIONS FOR SELF CLEANING:

1. TAKE OUT THE RACKS UNLESS YOU DON'T MIND THEM TARNISHING
2. TURN THE "SELECTOR" AND/OR "OVEN" DIALS TO THE LOCK (OR CLEAN) POSITION
3. PRESS THE "COOK TIME" BUTTON
4. SET THE CLOCK TO 2 OR 3 HOURS (I.E., "2:00" OR "3:00"), DEPENDING ON HOW DIRTY THE OVEN IS
5. PRESS "START" BUTTON
6. YOU WILL HEAR THE MOTORIZED LOCK MOVE INTO PLACE; WAIT ABOUT 30 SECONDS, THE DOOR SHOULD BE LOCKED AND CLEANING WILL BEGIN.
7. CLEANING WILL STOP AFTER THE TIME SELECTED (I.E., 2 / 3 HRS) AND THE DOOR SHOULD AUTOMATICALLY UNLOCK
