Jenn-Air oven won't unlock after cleaning is done.
Oven appears cool and clock works, but cooking controls do not respond and "lock" is displayed. It has also beeped and displayed F1 F2 and F3 errors. It appears that others have had similar problems. What is the solution? Flipping the circuit breaker did not work. There is no locking bar on this double oven.

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out. you may have done a panel lock, so try the first solution.
To Lock/Unlock Control: Before locking, make sure the ovens, Timer and Timed Cooking are off. Press and hold START/ENTER until a single tone sounds and "Loc," a picture of a lock and "START?" will appear on the oven display, about 5 seconds. Repeat to unlock and remove "Loc" from display.
To Stop Self-Clean any time: Press UPPER OFF, LOWER OFF or OFF/CANCEL. If the oven temperature is too high, the door will remain locked. It will not unlock until the oven cools.

The problem is likely bad capacitors on the clock module. I had the
same problem on a similar oven and fixed it by replacing the capacitors
on the clock module. Find someone who is good with electronics to help
you. The parts will be a few dollars at most. Give them a tip too. See
this link for more info: http://www.badcaps.net/forum/showthread.php?t=7902
Control panel and oven door lock
The oven door and controls can be locked to avoid unintended use of the oven. The oven doors and controls cannot be locked if the oven is in use, or the oven temperature is 400°F (205°C) or above. The current time of day will remain in the display when the controls and oven doors are locked. To lock the control panel and both oven doors:
Press and release Cancel.
Press and hold upper oven Cancel and Cook & Hold for 3 seconds. “Off” appears in the display and “Lock” flashes while the controls and oven doors lock. Both oven doors lock. “Lock” remains lit in the display.
To unlock the control panel and both oven doors:
Press and hold upper oven Cancel and Cook & Hold for 3 seconds. “Off” disappears from the display and “Lock” flashes while the controls and oven doors unlock.
After the lock indicator light goes out, move the
door lock lever to the left. The oven door can now be opened. Turn the
selector and temperature knobs from clean to off AFTER THE DOOR IS
UNLOCKED. If the temperature knob is turned to off BEFORE the door is
unlocked, the door will not open. Forcing the lock will damage the lock
mechanism. If this should happen, return the temperature knob back to
CLEAN, unlock the door, THEN turn the temperature knob off.
Jenn-Air Grill Range with Self Cleaning Radiant Bake and Convection Oven models S136, S156, S161
I have Jenn Air oven S136-C with a locking bar. After cleaning cycle wait for the oven to cool down and the lock light will go out (but the oven is not yet unlocked.)
Set SELECTOR knob to OFF
Set TEMPERATURE knob to CLEAN
Press CANCEL button (on right) twice.
Slide the locking bar to the left and the oven door will open.
Maryann, try shutting the breaker off for 5 minutes and see if the door unlocks. Im assuming the oven has cooled down. If that doesn't work try holding the cancel and broil pads for 3 seconds. This will put it into the quik test mode. Once in this mode press the clean button. This should toggle between lock and unlock. Don't know if this will work for you but it's worth a try..Catriver...post back.
