Had this EXACT same problem the day before a party where I needed the oven for lots of baking.... Tried all sorts of things, was about to call a repair man- I FINALLY got it to open by following the first two directions for putting it into self clean mode (turned both knobs to CLEAN), then when it said to lock door I tried to move the lock lever and bam it worked! Give it a shot! Good luck! (:
I did it by mistake. I tried to move the lever over and of course, it didn't open but went to restart. I hit the cancel button and then tried the door again and it opened. Yup, we all here feel likes dorks!
It's 'sort of' self cleaning. I just got done figuring it out. If your clock still works, you're supposed to set it for one hour of cooking. Turn the Selector to Accel Clean and the thermostat to 550. The oven fan should come on and the elements should heat. The door doesn't have a lock, which must explain why it only 'cleans' at 550°F.
my automatic cleaning setting in my oven will not heat up. I set "clean" on both dials and put the lock on, the fan comes on but no heat. Is there a certain system to turning it all on and the timer so it will work?
It sounds to me like the switch that operates the light is malfunctioning. You're taking the right steps by pressing the switch by hand. Since that didn't work, either that switch is not working or there is another switch that is intended to keep the light on while the door is closed. You can look at that one too. The last thing to consider is if the light is relay controlled, the relay might be stuck closed and applying power to the light all the time.
