On most models, the door stays locked during a self clean, until the temperature returns to normal for safety reasons.

It sounds like your unit may have tripped a breaker during this self clean event. Check your panel for a tripped breaker. If the oven has cooled down, and the lock is still engaged, then we may have a different problem.

Let me know what you find out!

there is a thermal fuse in the back of the oven that more than likely has tripped during self clean poor air flow around can cause this power surges during self clean can too you have to pull the oven out and remove back panel to find it

SOURCE: Oven door won't open

Hi... Having problems with my Dacor ERD36 as well, I came across this posting that might help with your particular situation of not being able to open the oven door.

Here is the link to the forum:
http://www.applianceguru.com/forum1/2189.html

In case you can't get to the forum link, here is the response:

Have a 2nd person at the circuit breaker turn off power. You press and hold the cooktime keypad. The other person turns the breaker back on. The display will show the 4-character ID code of the ERC (e.g., 1180). You have 30 seconds between each test.

Press and hold these keys on sequence:

convection bake
standard bake
pure convection
broil
timer 2 (momentary push only)
stop time
clock


Finally, we arrive at the test we want:
Open the door, push and hold cook time for 10 seconds. Self clean latch motor will activate. Door latch will complete a cycle. The test will end the ERC will display the time of day.

Complete this test within 30 seconds or you'll get an F0 code (stuck keypad).


I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Whilrpool Self Cleaning Range Door won't unlock

try this 1. Verify error code by pressing and holding CANCEL/OFF key for 5 seconds.
Momentarily (less than 5 sec.) press CANCEL key again to remove error code
display.
2. Press and hold any key for 1 minute until F2 E0 code is displayed.
3. Cancel F2 E0 error code.
4. Program and start the clean mode. Observe to see if door locks. If it does not,
inspect the locking mechanism from the solenoid to the latch pawl and door to
find the cause of the problem. If the door is not locking, then 1 minute from the
start of clean, the F5 E1 code will again be displayed. Steps 1 through 3 will
have to be repeated before another clean can be started.
5. Once any mechanical problems with the latch mechanism have been corrected,
program and start a clean cycle (after, if necessary, clearing F5 E1 error code)
to ensure proper operation of the door lock. Immediately cancel the clean mode to observe proper operation of door unlock

SOURCE: After using the self-clean cycle, display panel went black and oven door stayed locked.

Happens alot dont feel bad , self clean mode runs the elements at 500 deg. to cook off everything possible , what happens is the cabinet gets to hot and heats saftey temp. fuses until they go out and they are not resetable. they are always located in different areas of ranges but usaully in the back. you can ohm them out to check them if you have a meter.let me know if you have any other questions.

After self cleaning oven door remains shut won't open, no access by push buttons which are now not lit


oven will stay locked till oven cools off to room temp , this is a safety feature (no burnt hands) and no front panel controls should be able to override this feature , if it still wont open some models have a "release" button that must be pressed on top back control panel after a clean cycle is run to signal to operator that oven is ready to wiped out , but that's a feature that id only seen on commercial ovens

Oven is locked and I can't open it


Try setting back into the selfclean mode. The door should finalize the locking action after which you can cancel selfclean and it should then unlock. If this doesn't do it, the locking mechanism could be disengaged (broken), which will require an experienced tech to open the door for you for temporary use until a repair part is installed.

If you want to try unlatching it manually, try a THICK coat hanger. Bend one end at a 90 degree angle.With it at a horizontal position, insert it over the top edge of the door 2 inches to the right of center, rotate it 90 degrees (so the bent end is pointing straight down) and slowly pull it to the left in an attempt to pull the latch hook to the open position. You will have to "wiggle" the door slightly as you pull the latch. Use caution not to jam the hanger in place and PLEASE TURN OFF THE POWER BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY DO-IT-YOURSELF REPAIRS.
Good luck.

Whirlpool MAX 18 in use since 2003, now opening the door the internal light goes thru multiple on/off cycles, as if some contact or wire in the door is starting to get loose or worn. At this time I can...


Had this kind of problem (and others) related to the fact that the cable from front panel (on door) to the main board won't last forever. Later models don't have this kind of problem as they don't have control panel on the door anymore, for a good reason! For a while, the owen will work then door is closed, but very soon that cable gets more damaged and you have to replace it with a new one (or make a better and longer lasting one yourself).

Used the selfcleaning feature. now it won't stop beeping and the oven door is locked. we have tried to unplug the oven, still nothing has changed. there is an error displayed. Please help!


HI- Sorry-No good news here. Techs call this feature 'Self-Destruct'. On site diagnosis is required to determine what components are affected. Best case is a burned out door switch, worst case is a burned out control. Find a good tech to check it out. And avoid the self clean 'feature' unless you have an extended warranty. Too many people believe the salesman when he says; "Clean? Just touch this button!"  Let me know if this explains what has happened, and if you need more info, just ask. Thanks-- Ed

Try to use selfcleaning feature on range and as soon as door locks it stops and goes to F9


The F9 code indicates there is a problem with the door lock.

Try disconnecting the power to the range for 10 seconds and reconnecting. Open the oven door and hold the door switch plunger in while you try these things. Put the control into clean for 5 minutes then cancel clean. You must hold the door switch plunger in for the 5 minutes.

Try canceling the clean cycle without putting the control into clean.

Kitchenaid superba oven stovetop oven door will not open after se


When the oven goes into clean mode the door is automatically locked as a safety feature. I would put it back into clean mode again, let it clean for a while and then hopefully when it cools down the door will open. good luck .

Frigidaire electri clean selfcleaning feature


It locks automatically. You can download the manual from Frigidaire here (as I just discovered while trying to figure out how to use the self-cleaning feature :) ): http://www.frigidaire.com/support/manuals.asp?NewSearch=New+Search

You don't need to type in the whole model number. For example, if the model number (found in the upper left when you open the oven door) is RSE37BAW*4, you only need to enter RSE37BA.

Good luck!
