Hold the oven light switch (push in by hand) reselect clean let the cycle start for a couple minutes then push cancel. you have to continue to hold the light switch the hole time. If you have a light switch on the control panel it's not that one it's the one that the oven door engages. If this fails unplug the stove and plug unit back in 5 minutes later again hold the door switch (push in). good luck

I have a ge spectra self cleaning oven the door does not lock when cleaning process begins it flashes locked and starts beeping but hook does not move into the lock position. I tried to unplug oven ho


If your GE Oven will not lock during the self clean cycle count yourself lucky. If it will go through the cycle then let it self clean and just make sure no one opens the door while it is hot. Most ovens fail locked and there are several possible faults - one of the two switches may have failed, the oven temperature sensor may have failed, the motor that drives the lock may have failed (most likely your issue), the plastic gear may have stripped. There is not a manual lock or unlock over ride and to unlock the oven manually you have to take the stove apart which is difficult when it is locked.

"Locked Door" flashes after interrupting self clean...


Hi robertkbrown...you may want to try to following steps.....good luck my friend...chris If ?LOC DOOR? is flashing in the display of your range or oven, and the self-clean cycle has not been selected, follow the steps below to reset your control: Motorized Switch 1. With the door open, locate the door jamb switch on the face of the oven. It will look like a small black post or dowel. 2. Push it in until the oven cavity light goes off, indicating that the oven believes the door is closed. 3. While you hold the door jamb switch in this position, complete the following steps. 4. Press the Clean pad, wait 10 seconds. 5. When the cycle initiates, press the clear/off or cancel pad immediately to cancel it. 6. Wait 10 seconds for the display to clear. 7. The door should unlock and there should not be a need for service. Manual Switch 1. Press the Clean pad. 2. Close the door. 3. Slide the latch to lock the door. 4. Hit the cancel button immediately. 5. Unlock the door.

My oven is locked and wont open. it is cold and wont unlock


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. The locking of the oven is a safety measure while self clean function is activated. Once the oven has completed the cycle & has cooled down, then it will reset the door lock.

If a self clean oven door lock fails to open after the self clean cycle and sufficient cooling time has elapsed (approximately 1 hour), there are several things you can try.
  1. Unplug the unit or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Plug the unit back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and gently try moving the door lock lever (is so equipped) or opening the door.
  2. Set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for 15 minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever (is so equipped) or opening the door.
If these procedures fail to correct the condition or you were not using the self clean cycle, then, the lock must usually be accessed and moved manually to open the door—

In order to open the door you have to open the control panel and remove the door lock.

Remove the three screws from the bottom of the control panel. You'll heed a 1/4" open wrench. Pull the bottom of the control panel toward yourself and push it up to release from the upper tabs.
The door lock is secured by the three screws.


Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.
Thanks

Some model ovens require the oven door to be manually unlatched before the controls are returned to the OFF position or else the door may not be able to be unlocked. Check the owner's manual for proper operating procedures.

I have an old(over 20 nyears) free standing magic chef model No. 177-31DB2 range. I put it on the cleaning cycle and everything seemed to be working well. But then it seemed like there was alot of smoke so...


WHEN THE DOOR IS LOCKED ON A SELF-CLEANING RANGE, AND THE TEMP GETS ABOVE 400 DEGREES, IT LOCKS THE LATCHING ASSEMBLY SO YOU CAN'T OPEN THE DOOR AND GET SCORCHED. IF YOU FORCED THE HANDLE TO TRY TO OPEN IT, YOU BENT THE ARM OF THE LATCHING ASSEMBLY. IN ORDER TO RELEASE THE LATCH,
ONLY IF YOU FORCED IT TO THE OPEN POSITION, YOU MUST FORCE IT BACK TO THE LOCK POSITION TO STRAIGHTEN THE ARM.THEN IT MIGHT RELEASE.

IF YOUR RANGE HAS A LOCK BUTTON THAT NEEDS TO BE
PRESSED TO SLIDE THE LATCH TO THE LOCK POSITION,
YOU WILL HAVE TO SET ALL CONTROLS BACK INTO THE CLEAN POSITION AND PRESS THE LOCK BUTTON TO RELEASE THE LOCK ON THE LATCH ASSEMBLY. YOU SHOULD HEAR A BUZZING OR HUMMING SOUND WHEN THE BUTTON IS PRESSED.

Self cleaning oven will not start for cleaning door lock problem


hi alot of people have been having this same problem with either the door locking before clean cycle and not opening or it goes through clean cycle and then the door is stuck shut and wont open.
You could try this it sometimes works before you press start push the door shut and keep pressure on it i mean lean on the door so your pushing it shut further than it is now then whilst putting pressure on the door try pressing start button again if it then starts cleaning cycle keep pushing door for about a minute then gently let go of the door.
This should then allow it to go through clean cycle but remember when clean cycle has finished dont try opening the door strait away as you will then have the problem door stuck and wont open you need to let the oven cool down before the door will open.
If after pushing the door shut a bit further you still have problem then the only thing you can try is switching off at mains for 24 hours this should release the lock let me know how you get on ok
