Question about Maytag Kitchen Ranges
I am unable to unlock the top oven door after running the self-clean routine for the top oven. This is a Maytag 850 series double oven stove. Is there some code to enter to clear the oven so that the door will unlock?
I was advised to disconnect power for at least 60 seconds to clear the control board. I did this several times with no luck getting the door unlocked. However, a few hours later, the door did finally unlock. Not sure what ultimately caused the door to unlock, but happy that I did not have to replace the control board.

Look for a manual lever to unlock the oven. If there is one, it will probably swing back and forth horizontally, just below the upper edge of the oven door.
Swing the locking lever, if one is present, all the way to the left. This should unlock the oven. If there is no manual lever to unlock the oven, it may be unlocked using push-button controls.
Check to see if the oven is in a self-cleaning cycle, or has just completed a self-cleaning cycle. If so, the door will unlock automatically once the oven has finished the cleaning cycle and cooled completely, which may take several hours. You cannot unlock the oven before it has cooled.
Unlock the "Clean/Off" button. Depending on the brand and model of your oven, the button may display both of these designations or just one. If your oven door is locked, but the oven is not warm and is not in a cleaning cycle, unlock it by pressing and holding the "Clean/Off" button.
