    My GE Profile door is "locked". I was in the process of cleaning it & set the self clean button BEFORE i shut my oven door. Now, the door is locked, but open!

  • outland1 Nov 17, 2008

    I don't have a LOCK button on my stove. It automatically locks when you start the 'oven cleaning' process.

  • outland1 Nov 17, 2008

    Well, the timer isn't working since the door wasn't shut. Any more suggestions???

  • outland1 Nov 18, 2008

    The cycle isn't running. No timer is running or will run.

    Ok, try this:


    1. Press CANCEL

    2. Depress and hold down the DOOR LIGHT SWITCH

    3. Press CLEAN (not START). Latch will unlock in about 6 seconds. You can now close the door.
    Or turn off the circuit breaker for about 5 minutes, and turn it back on and see if this helps..

If you've interrupted the clean cycle or have accidentally set the clean cycle "with the oven door open,"or u forgot to close the door and started cleaning then  the latch may have engaged and now the door can't be closed because it will hit the latch. There may be a door activated* switch on the front face of the machine. In this case you may need to manually press that door switch with your finger while at the same time canceling the clean cycle to get the latch to retract so the door can close fully again.
On -some- Frigidaire built ranges, the switch is located behind the right hand side panel and activated by the right hand door hinge. On this model, the side panel may need to be removed to access a malfunctioning door switch.

If the lock does not open after the machine has cooled down, you can try....1) Unplugging the range or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 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. 2) 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 or opening the door.

    elf clean "how to" help....
    There are many different styles of clocks and ranges that are popular today. You may not find the exact type as your range, but have a look through, as one may be close enough to help you set the self clean.
    ...Room 1 some common GE built ranges
    ...Room 2 more GE and some Maytag built ranges
    ...Room 3 Amana and Frigidaire (WCI) built ranges
    ...Room 4 Older style common ranges....White-Westinghouse/Frigidaire
    ...Room 5  Whirlpool - Inglis built Kenmore range

Oven lock stuck in locked position and oven door won't close - was starting self cleaning and then checked to see if door was locked and door opened, but lock engaged, and now oven door won't shut. ...


Hello there:
This is a very common issue with these appliances whenever the cleaning cycle is interrupted this normally is the result.
So what you will need to do is to first unplug the appliance from the wall outlet and leave it alone for 1 hour this allows the internal self reset feature to reset the oven.
once the hour has elapsed plug it back in and you should hear a audiable click within about 5 min or if you have a cancel button press it and you should be able to continue from there okHopethis is very helpful for you Please keep me posted ok
Best regards mike

I found the owner's manual online and tried all of the solutions. One worked.

GE Spectra XL44 Gas Oven, flashing "Locked Door". Can't use oven or close door


I had the same problem happen tonight. I have an XL44 self-cleaning gas range. We unplugged it for several minutes and pressed 'cancel' a bunch of times--neither worked. We finally lucked out--opened the oven door and pressed a black button on the upper left side of the front of the oven. It turned out the flashing words and unlocked our door. Weird. There was nothing in the manual about this...

Locked oven door


Look for a button or sensor which the door would press when closed.
If you find it hold it down for a minute, this should reset the lock
if it doesn't it may do when you let go

Oven door won't unlock


I had the same problem on my Kenmore Electric Range. Door would not unlock. Tried pressing "Off" for multiple seconds, but still would not unlock. No error codes. Clock was displaying normally. Finally decided to try running it thru the self cleaning operation to get it to cycle thru locking and unlocking the door. When I started self clean, the door automatically went thru the auto lock and "locked" appeared in the display. I then hit "Off" to clear it and stop the cleaning cycle. The door then unlocked as normal!

DCS gas oven locked


I let the door stay open, hold the switch closed with my finger, activated self clean. Let it run for a minute then hit cancel, the stove heating element shut off and the locked door blinked for 5 seconds then finally stopped. Back to normal.

Self cleaning oven door locked before I got the door closed.


Try holding in on the door switch while resetting the clean cycle.
This should rotate the latch. Once the cycle starts, cancel it. The latch should go to the unlock position.

You will have to hold in on the door switch during all these steps.

If this does not work, post back with the complete model number from the oven and I will see what else I can come up with.
