Somehow I bumped the top of the oven when I was putting in a cookie sheet. The "bake" light went off, and the "locked" indicator began to flash. However, the door was not closed and the latch is in the out or locked position. The oven door will not close all the way. I have tried pushing cancel, clean, bake, unplugging the whole thing. Nothing has worked yet. Please help me.

The door light switch was broken (upper right face of oven). The door switch is automatically activated when the door is opened to turn on the oven light. When the door is closed the switch is depressed to turn off the light. It seems the switch position is detected by the oven and if it is in the open position it will not allow the oven to function properly (reach temperature or allow the cleaning cycle to run). I temporarily locked the broken switch in the closed position, which allows the oven to function. A new switch was ordered for replacement.
First, I would buy an oven thermometer to use in the gas oven to see if the temp you set is what you are getting. Second, Perhaps, you used a different pan or cookie sheet in one vs the other? Also the cookies perhaps should be a little closer together as they bake. A cookie sheet with a lot of uncovered surface will get hotter than one with a bigger load. (ever notice the instructions for biscuits or cinnamon rolls say "sides touching"?, same reasoning. if you put a few rolls on a big sheet or pan, you'll burn the bottoms, gas or electric.) Hope this works for you, when you get happy using the gas, you won't want an electric again.
Hello Friends Creek. Welcome to Fixya You said, you used the self cleaning selection on my Admiral Designer Series gas
range. The oven went through the complete cycle of 3 hours. You then unlocked
the door and was able to open the oven door no problem. Later on you went
to use the oven, pushed the bake button and the lock light would flash. And you could not get past that to get the oven to come on.
You did the right thing to turn off the
electricity and then turned it back on. Did you wait 5 minutes before turning the power back on?Or just flick it off and on? You said, the lock light still blinked. But did it lockup again?
Please send me the model and year of your range. Huuum
try to hold down the light switch on the door set it up for another cleaning hit start when oven clean door lock showes hit cancel if that doesnt work try unplugging it for three min fyi the doors can take up to an hour to un lock after cleaning its so it dont burn your face off from the intense heat after cleaning some take 2
You were right. The locking mechanism switch somehow became jammed and the oven thought the door was locked, even though I could open the door. I didn't know if I was supposed to take the top off and moving the lever back and forth did not help. Finally I turned the oven on and just kind of jiggled the latch in the unlocked position. I kind of moved it back and forth furiously and the cleaning light stopped blinking and the oven light came on. I'm glad it is working now, but I will be manually cleaning my oven from now on! Thanks for your help.
My Spectra XL44 suddenly refuses to ignite the baking portion of the oven - broiler and top work just fine. The day before it was working fine. Wondered if it was an electrical egnition problem - gas feed or what??? Help!! Mregressor@aol.com
