Fixya does not sell replacement control panel glass. Check with a local appliance parts supplier or contact Beaumark directly to determine availability and source.

Oven is locked and I can't open it

Try setting back into the selfclean mode. The door should finalize the locking action after which you can cancel selfclean and it should then unlock. If this doesn't do it, the locking mechanism could be disengaged (broken), which will require an experienced tech to open the door for you for temporary use until a repair part is installed.

If you want to try unlatching it manually, try a THICK coat hanger. Bend one end at a 90 degree angle.With it at a horizontal position, insert it over the top edge of the door 2 inches to the right of center, rotate it 90 degrees (so the bent end is pointing straight down) and slowly pull it to the left in an attempt to pull the latch hook to the open position. You will have to "wiggle" the door slightly as you pull the latch. Use caution not to jam the hanger in place and PLEASE TURN OFF THE POWER BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY DO-IT-YOURSELF REPAIRS.
Good luck.

Gas oven door locked after autocleaning-- will not open

set the selfclean and after you hear it lock down then cancel the operation and wait to give it time to unlock ,,, may take up to 10 minutes ,,, if it dont unlock you will need to get into the back of it and run the door latch back by hand
Take the back cover off the the stove. UNPLUG THE STOVE
On the left rear facing the back of the range youll see that the timer motor had stopped.may sure you unplug the input(230 volt power) leading to the stove, then unpluggand insulate the wiring to the timer motor and the microswitch on top of it ( 4 wires). Then take the long steel wire off of it and unlatch the oven door.
this probably had something to do with the timer motor on the self cleaning cycle and that it was stuck
Do NOT use the self cleaning function unless you fix the timer motor. Replace it or clean it.
Hope this helps
