Electric Jen Air range oven door won't unlock

Ran the oven in cleaning mode which locks the door. At the end of the cycle, the door latch will not release. I have disconnected power & repowered (hoping to reset the locking swith) but that did not work.

SOURCE: Electric Range Door Locked after cleaning

"F1" is an error code for any of the following possible problems: Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board. Wiring harness shorted. Defective touchpad on the control board. I speculate that the control board may have failed during the cleaning cycle, causing your problem. Unfortunately, this may be an expensive repair if it is a control board, and it could be maintenance intensive to get to the door latch to release it. You will need to lift the stove top to gain access to the linkage for the oven door relay. There should be a few screws under the top front to remove. Make sure you unplug the unit or turn off the circuit breaker before servicing. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: jen air locked latch after cleaning

I finally got my oven to work properly by shutting off the breaker and resetting the main clock. Cured the always locked problem as well as the beep twice when self cleaning.

Have to repeat this every few months since the problem seems to come back.

My oven display says door locked. it isnt locked i can open it. BUT it wont unlock and allow me to set a temperature.

press in the door switch with your hand and set the clean cycle wait for the latch to make complete cycle then hit cancel while still holding door switch. if unit still says locked you may have bad latch assy.

Oven door lock does not unlock, I turned on the self clean mode and then changed my mind and turn it back off about 3 minutes later. But it does not unlock. The lock light is blinking.


Thanks for using FixYa. There is an over-temperature switch built into the electrical panel of the oven. Resetting this switch might solve the issue.

To reset it: Turn off the power. Open the door (if door is locked, turn the power back on and gently try pulling the door every few seconds as the locking mechanism cycles until it is unlocked). Remove the 3 screws below the control panel (screws point upwards, with the head just inside the oven). Pull off the face of the control panel. Let it dangle by the wires so that you have access to the space behind it.

Within the electrical enclosure exposed by removing the control panel, look for a small silver and black device with 2 wires attached to the back. The device is about .5" wide by 1" long and is attached with 2 screws to the sheet metal on the bottom of the electrical enclosure.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

I have a Frigidaire oven model # 316244485. I

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.

Jenn Air oven door won't open after clean cycle

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! (:

Whilrpool Self Cleaning Range Door won't unlock

try this 1. Verify error code by pressing and holding CANCEL/OFF key for 5 seconds.
Momentarily (less than 5 sec.) press CANCEL key again to remove error code
2. Press and hold any key for 1 minute until F2 E0 code is displayed.
3. Cancel F2 E0 error code.
4. Program and start the clean mode. Observe to see if door locks. If it does not,
inspect the locking mechanism from the solenoid to the latch pawl and door to
find the cause of the problem. If the door is not locking, then 1 minute from the
start of clean, the F5 E1 code will again be displayed. Steps 1 through 3 will
have to be repeated before another clean can be started.
5. Once any mechanical problems with the latch mechanism have been corrected,
program and start a clean cycle (after, if necessary, clearing F5 E1 error code)
to ensure proper operation of the door lock. Immediately cancel the clean mode to observe proper operation of door unlock

Oven door won't unlock

I fixed the automatic oven door lock on my oven. While the door was open, I pushed the button on the upper left hand side a couple of times (the one that senses when the door is closed.) Then I was going to call the repairman when the door closed! I had to run the self clean cycle again to get the lock light to go off, but it worked!
