My whirlpool oven model RBD245 is locked after the self cleaning cycle, it does not heat up even if i open the latch with a tool?


Whirlpool have the self clean latch assembly solenoid go bad and wont return back to unlock the switch to tell the control is is no longer in self clean. Replace the self clean latch assembly or make sure the switch on the assembly is in the non self clean mode, If the oven starts working then you know the problem if it still doesn't work then there may be other issues.

If a selfclean 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, the lock must usually be accessed and moved manually to open the door.
Most self cleaning ranges today use one of 3 different types of door locking systems. One design is solenoid driven, another is heat activated and the last, motorized.
  • A solenoid controlled system can be identified by the lever that must be set to lock the door, plus a loud buzzing or clunking noise heard when locking or unlocking the door.
  • The heat sensitive lock mechanism also has a locking lever but makes no noises. It instead utilizes a coiled spring to slowly lock the door as the oven heats.
  • The motorized design has no lever to move, the motor locks the door by itself when the range is set for self clean. The motor may have made an audible whining or ratcheting sound when in use.

A motorized or heat sensitive style lock will usually be located beneath the cook top on free standing ranges. The cook top would usually need to be lifted to access the locking mechanism. On built in ovens, the oven must usually be removed from its enclosure (or at least partially) in order to remove the top panel to gain access to the locking mechanism. On some built in oven models, the lock assembly may be able to be accessed by removing the control console.
sc-lock-geheatsensitive.gifOn the heat sensitive style (illustrated), there are no electrical parts used to operate the lock which could fail, so the whole mechanism will usually need to be replaced if not operational.
With the motorized lock mechanism, a volt/ohm meter is required to try to determine why the locking motor will not operate. The failure could be in the motor itself or the power supply leading to it, including a door activated and/or console mounted switch and switches on the latch mechanism itself.
On solenoid activated designs, the solenoid coil is a common failure point which is often mounted on the back of the range. On many of these models, the lock mechanism can be accessed by removing the rear panel of the appliance. Some models such as built-in ovens or drop-in/slide-in ranges, may have the mechanism mounted towards the front, under the top.
sc-lock-gelocksolenoid.anim.gifFailure of a solenoid style lock is most often caused by a bad solenoid. Once the lock is located, the solenoid coil can be checked for continuity. Some latch assemblies also have micro switches in the power supply that will need to be checked for faults too.
Be certain to unplug or remove power from the range before undertaking any repairs yourself and follow all standard safety precautions.
usually if you are unable to open it after all these tests then you would resort to manually opening the door by getting a piece of wire and slip it where the latch mechanism is and prying to the left this is a last means resort so try these other ways and get back to me with any further questions that you may have and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation Thanks again

We also just did self clean, and oven now does not heat.


Don't ever use "self-clean".   Since you did, call a tech, pay for repairs, and get angry because I told you. If you use it again, blame someone else.  "Self-clean" is called 'Self-Destruct' by most Technicians.    Using this feature will destroy circuits and components in any oven.                          --- Clean by scraping stuff off bottom, wipe with damp cloth, and turn on to 450deg. for 30 min.     I have told you what has happened and how to solve the problem- direct your anger elsewhere.                                         Please acknowledge this post.  Thank you for your time- Ed

I have a whirlpool gbs307 oven and after completing a self-clean cycle and wiping it clean after it cooled, it won't heat at all. Any ideas?


HI,
This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

thank you,

Cleaning over but lock light will not goff and i can not open my oven


The oven door lock needs approximately 1 hour to cool down before the oven door can be opened after a self cleaning cycle has finished. If the lock does not open after the oven has cooled down, you can try....1) Unplugging the range or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Plug the range back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and try moving the door lock lever or opening the door. 2) Set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for 15 minutes.

Most ranges today use 3 different types of door locks...one is a solenoid controlled lock ( you hear a loud buzz noise when setting or unlocking the lock and has a arm that you must move to set the lock )...another is a heat sensitive lock ( has a arm that you must move to lock and un-lock, makes no noises and has a spring that slowly moves to lock the door will the oven is heating up )...Some locks are motorized ( no handle to move, the motor locks the door by it's self when you set the range for self clean )... If the motorized and heat sensitive locks fails to open after the self clean cycle, you must access the lock and move it yourself to open the door. On the free standing ranges, most times you must lift the cook top to access the lock mechanism. On built in ovens, the oven must be pulled out to remove the top access panel to get at the lock mechanism. Some build in ovens can have the control console removed to access the lock system.

Unplug or remove power from the range. Take the rear cover off the range. Locate the door latch assembly and operate it manually and open your door. Then check continuity of the solenoid. Some of the latch assemblies have micro switches to supply power also. You may need to check them. You should be able to get the door open and use your range until you can get a tech to repair if you can not repair yourself.

If you've interrupted the clean cycle or have accidentally set the clean cycle with the oven door open, the latch may have engaged and now the door can't be closed because it will hit the latch. There may be a door activated* switch on the front face of the oven. In this case you may need to manually press that door switch with your finger while at the same time canceling the clean cycle to get the latch to retract so the door can close fully again.

*On -some- Frigidaire built ranges, the switch is located behind the right hand side panel and activated by the right hand door hinge. On this model, the side panel may need to be removed to access a malfunctioning door switch.
