Jenn-Air stove locked

I put my Jenn-Air stove on the clean cycle and when it started to beep 1 hour into the cyle, I hit cancle. Now the stove is perminatly locked and I can't get it to open. It is not heating. I turned it off at the circut breaker, and that did't work. I also tried to restart the cleaning and it just beeps "F5" at me. Help! How can I get the stove to unlock? My oven door is locked after a cleaning cycle of about 11 hours! The oven is cooled and the fan is still going. Also the digital display is blank.

After the lock indicator light goes out, move the door lock lever to the left. The oven door can now be opened. Turn the selector and temperature knobs from clean to off AFTER THE DOOR IS UNLOCKED. If the temperature knob is turned to off BEFORE the door is unlocked, the door will not open. Forcing the lock will damage the lock mechanism. If this should happen, return the temperature knob back to CLEAN, unlock the door, THEN turn the temperature knob off.

Lever will not unlatch after cleaning.


The lock is a latch connected to a temperature sensitive bi-metallic spring that locks the door when HOT and releases it when it cools to a safe level. Self cleaning ovens reach over 500F in cleaning mode.

If it's been a few hours and the door is cool it should open. If not, press the door closed a bit and whack the top of the stove with your hand. It may be stuck or gummed up as that part does not get cleaned during the cycle.

You may be able to raise the top of the burner deck like the hood of a car and see some part of the locking mechanism and be able to get the door open. Replace the lock.

Jenn air wall oven, 18 years old, tried to clean, code f-8 came on, oven beeps, hit clear, beeping comes on in several minutes, and oven will unlock, have tuned circuit breaker off and back on, did not...


The oven remains locked when internal temperature is hot enough for the cleaning cycle. If it unlocks after the temperature comes back down, it seems to be working properly.

We used the self cleaning option and now we cannot get the oven door open. The lever is stuck in lock mode. Can you give suggestion?


Hello,

IF you can locate the model number tag (bottom left of door opening) you can look up the manual at www.geappliances.com

The only button on your stove that should make the door lock would be the clean button (self clean model) if that is pressed simply hit the clear/off or cancel key and wait for the door to unlock.

IF the self clean option ran for an hour or so, you will have to wait for the oven to cool down before the lock can unlock (safety feature)

Model SVD48600 door won't open after clean cycle. Fan also locked on. Powered off overnight; no change: "Locked" still displayed


That is a very complicated unit for the average handyman. It has electronic controls and a relay board, sensors and a locking mechanism. First thing I would check is the locking mechanism and the switch on it. Do this first and let me know if you find one of the switches defective or shorted. While there, check the light switch which is bi-functional being used for the light and also to tell the ERC the door is opened or closed.

Jenn-Air self-cleaning ovens have a special setting that allows you to clean the oven without chemicals or scrubbing. The oven heats to a temperature higher than used for cooking. The intense heat burns food spills and other residue off oven's inner surfaces.

Instructions
1. Remove the broiler pan and any utensils to prevent them from being damaged. Take out the oven racks, since the high heat might discolor them.
2. Wet a cleaning cloth or sponge with hot water and detergent. Wash off splatters or spills from areas that won't be affected by the cleaning process, including the oven door liner and the oven's front frame. Wipe up any excess grease or spills on the oven floor.
3. Close the oven door and press the "clean" pad on the unit's touch pad.
4. Enter the amount of cleaning time. For example, two hours is appropriate for a lightly soiled oven, three for average and four for heavily soiled. Cleaning should start immediately. The oven will remain locked during the cycle.
5. To delay cleaning, hit the "stop time" pad and enter the desired stop time. For example, if it is 9 p.m. and you want the oven to clean for three hours starting at 10 p.m., key in the numbers 1,0,0.
6. While the cleaning function operates, use the scouring pads to wash the oven racks and other utensils. Once the cycle ends and the oven unlocks and cools, you can use a damp cloth to pick up any loose or burnt debris inside. Replace the racks, broiler pan and utensils.

It will remain locked until the temperature is safely as low as it should be. You just have to wait and be patient.

Stove door locked and continues to beep and flash code F9


The F9 code indicates there is a problem with the door lock.

Try disconnecting the power to the range for 10 seconds and reconnecting. Open the oven door and hold the door switch plunger in while you try these things. Put the control into clean for 5 minutes then cancel clean. You must hold the door switch plunger in for the 5 minutes.

Try canceling the clean cycle without putting the control into clean.
