Door Locked on and can't remove after water spill

I have a KitchenAid self-cleaning eliectric range KESH307 HBS5. A lobster pot overflowed and wet the glass control panel. Now the Door Locked displays and the over door won't open and I can't turn it off.

Also the display panel looks like it has cobwebs on it. When it was wet, I could see the water in the display and now that it dried, it has this pattern like a cob web or something.

Please let me know what to do. Thanks!

    You won't believe this, but it fixed itself. I guess it had to dry out. I couldn't find the circuit breaker to turn if off, but the door locked display is gone and the oven door opens now! It still has the spider web look, but as you say, that's just cosmetic. Thanks for your help.

I have a kitchenaid slide in range that was working perectly except for the oven bulb. As I was trying to remove the bulb it just continued to spin as the actual glass part of the bulb was coming apart from it's socket. Well needless to say it came apart sparking and no the display is completely dark. The burners work perfectly but the clock and oven are shot. Any suggestions?

At this point it is very likely the control panel will need to be replaced. If you had disconnected the power and let it dry completely before trying to use it it may have been ok except for the cosmetic issues. You might still try unplugging it for a half hour or shut down the circuit breaker for that amount of time. I am thinking it won't help but it is worth a try. I don't know what to tell you about the cobweb looking damage.

hmmm....that interlock is dependent on a temperature sensor, to ensure that no one opens that door when it's too hot inside. I'm assuming that it's still locked, even after the temperature has dropped off?

GE Range flashing locked after boil over


GE Electric range with front controls. I had a pot boil over and spill over the front of the range, some water got on the membrane key panel. But I’m assuming some went behind the panel on to the control board. The LOCKED button started to flash randomly and the electric door latch was engaging and disengaging also randomly. Unplugging the unit and looking for any type of reset button did not help. The control board which is mounted behind the membrane panel got wet and was causing a short. Luckily it survived. I fixed it by removing the four stove knobs, four retaining plastic nuts that are mounted behind the knobs, and then the four (2 and 2 outer most) 1/4” bolts that hold the main panel on. I dried out the electric front door switch and the electric panel with hairdryer for 10 minutes. Plugged it back in and its all fixed. . No so good design to allow this to happen so easily so as I assembled it back together I put silicone around the membrane panel in hopes of preventing this from reoccurring.

It has a safety that will not allow the door to open while the temperature is high in the oven. oven temps can reach 700 degrees during the self clean cycle. allow the unit to cool completely and see if it works then. if not, let us know.

How do I use the self cleaning functions - kitchenaid oven


Hi,

Please allow me to help you first with some background of self cleaning functions:

Self-cleaning ovens use an approximately 900 degrees Fahrenheit (482 degrees Celsius) temperature cycle to burn off spills leftover from baking, without the use of any chemicals. A self-cleaning oven is designed with a mechanical interlock (patented in 1982) to keep the oven door locked and closed during and soon after the high-temperature cleaning cycle, which can be approximately three hours. The door stays locked to prevent burn injuries. You can open the oven door after the oven cools to approximately 600 F (315 C).

If baking spills are not wiped up after baking, there may be some smoke during an oven cleaning cycle. It is a good idea to remove any pets from the area when running the oven's self-cleaning cycle. There have been reports of oven-heated Teflon-coated items releasing odorless fumes deadly to birds.
Self-cleaning ovens have the added benefit of more insulation, which helps the energy efficiency for regular baking. This is similar in concept to an increased R-factor for home insulation.

You will also save energy costs by using the self-cleaning cycle right after baking, to make use of the already partially heated oven.

Please check this website mentioned bellow which would give you a detailed method of how to perform it:

Hope this would help you .

God Bless.

By the way the door lock error will stay there until the oven cools. Once it has cooled it will go away. the reason is in a self clean the oven is supposed to get very hot to clean. The door lock is for your protection. once it has cooled down enough the door lock will go away.

Spill into oven vents


The best way to clean the inner glass is to remove the door from the oven. With the door in the broil open position (first stop) pull up for about 2 inches until the hinge brackets are released from their stops. Close the door all you can and lift the door off the hinges. Lay the door on a padded surface and remove the 4 screws on the bottom. The outside glass will now slide out of its rail and you can clean the inside. To install just reverse the process. If you take your time and observe, it's not that bad of a job...Catriver..post back.
