Did you smell plastic burning when this happened? More than likly you fried the door lock. see if you can see a bubble of melted plastic. If you do try to clean the bubble (remove it)

How do I turn off the lock on my electric oven


You may try starting a clean cycle again. This sometimes will run the lock motor to unlock the latch after it sets the lock. Cancel the clean after a few minutes. I hope this will help.

Power went out, now ovens are 'locked' - how to unlock?


I DO know the lower oven door can be released by lifting gently up and to the right, and a little 'joggling' will allow the door to be opened. It seems the lock latch swings to the (almost) locked position unpredictably and intermittently. I hate this @#$% stove. So does my wife.
The upper oven door has never seized. Upper oven has burned through several elements, and it's dangerous to replace. NEVER TRY ANYTHING WHEN CIRCUITS ARE STILL LIVE.
I hate thjis stove. I REALLY DO HATE IT.

If you can push the latch in manually, press the clear button while the button is pressed in. If that doesn't clear it:

Try disconnecting the power at the breaker to reset any electronics that might be at fault. (Make sure there are no little graphics of a lock that appear on your screen. If there are and you can't find the source, the shut down should help.

There is sometimes a separate switch aside from the light switch the is on the front of the stove front or very close to the latch itself. Considering that the oven clean will work, if there is one, it appears that is working in the in position. Look around the latch and the front of the oven for any other switches. Clean it if you find a separate control so that it can pop back out when the door is open.

I fixed the problem simply by pressing the clean button when the oven was warm, not cold.
For some reason not explained in the instruction manual, the oven door safety locked properly and automatically when the oven was warm. I don't know why, but I'll take it!!

Whirlpool oven


When I had a similar problem, the door wouldn't unlock even after unplugging, waiting 30 minutes, and plugging the oven back in. I finally had to manually unlock the oven by turning the lock latch motor myself.

Here's a good page that describes what the lock latch motor looks like and where it's located. Of course, there is 220V current running around inside there, so please unplug before removing the back access cover and put it back on before plugging the oven back in.

My symptoms:
  • Oven failed to complete auto-clean cycle.
  • Oven started beeping; control panel showed FSE 1
  • About a minute after plugging in, oven started beeping and displaying FSE 1 again
Once I unlocked the door manually and plugged back in, the oven started behaving normally.

Frigidaire---oven door locks.


On my Frigidaire electric range with flat screen front controls, when the "Clean" control was accidentally pushed and the door locked, I could not unlock the door by cutting power, by running the clean mode for 30 seconds then pushing "Clear", or by hitting any button. What opened the door was holding down the "Clear" button for 30 seconds until the range started beeping and code "F11" read on the led. This worked. Good luck with yours.
