You oven is locked because it is self-cleaning. Some how the handle got moved and it initiated. You may need to let the oven finish self-cleaning. Usually, it can take about an hour to complete the process. Afterward, the oven will beep when done and your oven can be opened. Good luck.

Fan stuck on, door locked


Hello,"If actual over temperature condition occurred"
Look for welded relay contacts. If this happens,replace oven control (also called clock or ERC).
IF NO OVER TEMPERATURE condition occurred: Look for high resistance connection or any other cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit.Check sensor, sensor harness and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control .Replace sensor if found defective.Check door lock switches.
REMEMBER: Oven control (ERC) measures resistance of sensor circuit, not actual oven temperature.

Thanks

GE Oven door won't unlock after cleaning cycle (and cool down).


Hi,
Cycling the power off and then on again will sometimes reset it...often you will have to call the customer service number to get the steps to take to unlock that...

Lock light flashing after cleaning. Will not


OK, what has happen here is, the actual temp sensor has failed during the cleaning process, this has cause a temp that reached a dramatic high range(above 915F-930F). At these temps, there will be major damage that will weld the contacts on the door lock switch mechanism and control board.

If actual over temperature condition occurred: Look for welded relay contacts. If this happens, replace oven control (also called clock or ERC).

If no over temperature condition occurred: Look for a high resistance connection or any other cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace sensor if found defective. Check door lock switches for faults as well(welded contacts and burned wiring harness)

Remember: Oven control (ERC) measures resistance of sensor circuit , not actual oven temperature.

Older Kenmore oven- door locked by itself


We had a quick power outage and when the power came back on it locked our older (1991) Kenmore electric oven model # 40889 / 40881. Went throought the manuel and nothing pertains to this problem. We have turned off the circuit breaker and turned back on, but nothing seems to unlock the door. Any suggestions would be GREAT!!!!!!!

There is usually a micro switch that is activated when the lock lever is in place - very likely this switch is still activated or has failed closed (defective) .

"Door Locked" flashing on GE Oven JTP15 - can't unlock


The problem may very well be in one of the micro switches on the self cleaning motor bracket. These switches control the electrical flow to the heating elements. In the owners manual there is/should be a chart that lists the unlock and safety combinations. This would be your best source of information.
