SOURCE: oven door is locked

the oven door should only unlock the door when it deems the temperature a safe temperature.. there are 2 other possible reasons.. the door lock motor could be bad.. or the control is bad.. you would need an electric volt meter to test to see which it is.. if you need further assistance please ask b4 rating

yes alot of times when you use the clean the door will latch then not unlock....these have micro switches that lock and unlock the door.....this is gonna be either one of the switches or the door latch assembly itself.

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!!

Gas range oven door with not open


Your self cleaning cycle is running. When self cleaning is running the door is automatically locked and will not unlock until the self cleaning cycle completes or self cleaning is turned off. You should be able to just turn off the self cleaning cycle and the door will unlock. Do not try to pry open the oven door. You will just damage the door and/or the catch.

My oven is locked and wont open. it is cold and wont unlock


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. The locking of the oven is a safety measure while self clean function is activated. Once the oven has completed the cycle & has cooled down, then it will reset the door lock.

If a self clean oven door lock fails to open after the self clean cycle and sufficient cooling time has elapsed (approximately 1 hour), there are several things you can try.
  1. Unplug the unit or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Plug the unit back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and gently try moving the door lock lever (is so equipped) or opening the door.
  2. Set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for 15 minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever (is so equipped) or opening the door.
If these procedures fail to correct the condition or you were not using the self clean cycle, then, the lock must usually be accessed and moved manually to open the door—

In order to open the door you have to open the control panel and remove the door lock.

Remove the three screws from the bottom of the control panel. You'll heed a 1/4" open wrench. Pull the bottom of the control panel toward yourself and push it up to release from the upper tabs.
The door lock is secured by the three screws.


Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.
Thanks

Self clean oven door wouldn't unlock!


Hi,
Try a trick that was given by an expert :-
All I needed to do was unscrew the 2 screws holding the lock assembly and it released it!! I screwed it back in and set the oven to self clean and it worked!!
Unless , F9 refers to slave micro not working. A condition in which you might need to replace control board.
Thanks.

Amana Oven Door won't open. Latch to lock it is broken.


After pressing Self Clean, Adjusting the Time and Pressing Start, the self cleaning cycle shows the # F57_ on the read-out. I tried to cancel and now the door opens, but I can't get the Bake to begin when I press Start. No matter what I press LOC flashes on and off, but the door is unlocked and the heat is off.
Please help!

Amana oven not working and boiler also


Check the oven sensor it may be the problem. Also check the lock assembly. When in self clean does your bake come on too? It should come on with the broiler.

Self cleaning oven door locked before I got the door closed.


Try holding in on the door switch while resetting the clean cycle.
This should rotate the latch. Once the cycle starts, cancel it. The latch should go to the unlock position.

You will have to hold in on the door switch during all these steps.

If this does not work, post back with the complete model number from the oven and I will see what else I can come up with.
