on most modern ovens there is a button for cleaning and some have a lever on the front door you have to move from left to right to lock the door first. If you do not have a lever yours more than likely is an auto lock door. You push the oven clean button and set time by pushing the up button on the temperature this will automatically turn it on for a minimum amount of time usually 2 hours and if you keep scrolling up it will go up to 6 hours. Once you start the cleaning mode it has to run its course and the oven will not unlock until the oven cools down to a safe temperature. have a nice day
I've seen this problem on my own oven. If yours, like mine, has a door that has a locking mechanism, the catch is most likely stuck in the locked position. The door still closes and the lever still moves (though it may be very stiff).
Take off the screws around the locking plate, manually push the catch to the open position, spray the catch VERY, VERY lightly with WD-40 and dry it thoroughly. Close the oven door and try the lever again.
At this point, it should move freely and your oven should be able to switch between LOCKED/Self-Clean Mode and UNLOCKED/Cook Mode. If it does still get stuck, you'll just has to a) try lubricating the catch a bit more or b) keep a screwdriver handy! ;)
If you ran a self cleaning cycle and now the door won't open you may just need to wait a while. The door locks to avoid anyone from opening it as the over heats up to around 700 or more degrees to burn anything off. Sometimes what will happen however is that the heat will get to intense and cause the door lock mechanism to jamb. If the door doesn't open for you after a good few hours or so you can try unplugging the oven for a while to try and reset it. If not though you will have to go through the front panel and go down to manually unlock the door. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful. Keep me updated on the outcome too if you wouldn't mind. Good luck and glad I could help.
