I had to interrupt the clean clyle of my Jenn Air Oven due to too much smoke. Not not matter what I do I can't get the door to open. I even ran it thru a clean cycle on lower heat, but it still won't open.
I just received my Jenn Air dual fuel double oven the day before yesterday. After a big day of cooking for a large crowd, I ran the self clean cycle on the lower oven.After it cooled down, the upper oven unlocked and could be opened, the lower oven remained locked even after "Lock" was no longer in the display, oven had cooled down for over two hours after the display cleared and the power was cut then turned back on. I am now cleaning the upper oven but likely is not going to disengage the lower oven door lock. I'm calling the company tomorrow and will post any response I receive.

Perhaps it hasn't cooled down enough; or you may have to run the self-cleaning cycle again. The oven has to reach a certain temperature before it starts to turn the residue to ash.You may have interrupted its cycle.
It then has to cool off sufficiently to safely open the door.
CLEAN PAD Use to set a self-clean cycle or a delayed self-clean cycle. One press of the Clean pad sets up an immediate clean cycle. A second press of the Clean pad sets up a delayed clean cycle. • Clean oven frame, door frame (area outside of gasket) and around the opening in the door gasket with a nonabrasive cleaner such as Bon Ami*. These areas are not exposed to cleaning temperatures. • Remove air grille. • Remove oven racks. If racks are left in during a clean cycle, it may impair function and they will discolor. Turn off the oven light and close door. * Brand names for cleaning products are registered trademarks of the respective manufacturers. TO SET FOR IMMEDIATE START: 1. Press Clean pad once. 2. Press the Auto Set pad for 3 hours of cleaning time, press again for 4 hours and again if 2 hours of clean time are desired. 3. CLEANING and LOC plus the clean time will appear in the display. 4. When the clean cycle is complete, CLEANED will be displayed. LOC will remain on until the oven has cooled (approx. 1 hour). 5. When the oven is cool, LOC will no longer be displayed and the door may be opened. 6. Wipe out the oven interior with a damp cloth. If soil remains it indicates the cycle was not long enough.
TO CANCEL SELF-CLEAN: 1. Press Cancel pad. 2. If LOC is NOT displayed, open oven door. If LOC is displayed, allow oven to cool.

Had this EXACT same problem the day before a party where I needed the oven for lots of baking.... Tried all sorts of things, was about to call a repair man- I FINALLY got it to open by following the first two directions for putting it into self clean mode (turned both knobs to CLEAN), then when it said to lock door I tried to move the lock lever and bam it worked! Give it a shot! Good luck! (:
I did it by mistake. I tried to move the lever over and of course, it didn't open but went to restart. I hit the cancel button and then tried the door again and it opened. Yup, we all here feel likes dorks!
I have a similar Jenn Air oven approximate date 1982. It has a catalytic liner (colored a kind of dark charcoal with paler flecks), so it is a continuous clean oven during normal cooking.
However, it also has the Accel Clean setting on the control knob.
This increases the oven temperature to maximum and also runs the convection fan to burn off cooking residues. This allows the catalytic lining work at high efficiency, and burn off stubborn residues that are not removed at normal cooking temperature. The oven may emit smoke through the top door vents as the food residues burn off, so watch that you do not set off your smoke detector. I switch on the cooker hood fan and also put a fan in the kitchen window (blowing air out of the kitchen), to avoid setting off my kitchen smoke detector if I use Accel Clean.
any power to unit at all?? clear, start, clean ,button?? what happens when you push them??? clock on?what happens when you try to set to clean again??? it should activate hte door lock latch at which point cancel and it should reset itself. with any luck! what happened thankgiving how was it fixed
This is not a problem. The cleaning cycle goes on for approximately 4 hours as I recall. it will unlock by itself when done. Read your user guide for troubleshooting tips. if you can't locate your copy, one is available on line at the Jenn-Air site
