It will not release until the oven cools. If it is cooled and still won't release unplug the range or shut down the circuit breaker that controls it for 30 minutes then power it back up and that should reset it and the latch will release.

Oven sef clean latch locked but door is open and I cannot clos it. I inadvertantly urned it to self clean and openedthe door and the latch is locked in self clean position. How do I release the latch so I...


Ok. Open the door and find the oven light switch(es) (some models had two switches). Press the switch(es) in and see if the latch goes back to the home position. If not enlist a volunteer to turn on the self clean cycle while you are holding the switch(es) in. Just after the self clean starts have them hit cancel and wait until the lock comes back to it's "home" or unlocked position.
Good luck!!

GE JBP260W3AD oven door will not open. It's an old stove and I was trying to run the clean cycle but never did because it wouldn't work. The problem is that as I was following the instructions on the...


You can use a long thin metal rod,like a welding rod to open the door.
Bend a "U" shape in one end of the rod. Slide the rod in between the door and the oven frame at the top center where the lock mechanism is located.
Do this from the left side facing the oven.
Pull on the rod to release the latch.
It may take several attempts.

Ge wall oven door will not open


If you can not open this door, then the problem probably is that you stopped the clean cycle before it was finished. Restart the cycle, and set it at the minimum of 3 hours, and then when it is finished, it will release the latch that locks the door. I had this problem last night, and after the cycle was finished, the door latch was released. Hope this helps.

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.

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
display.
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
