    When you say "cleaning the oven" do you mean running the oven through a self-cleaning cycle? If so, how long have you waited since the end of the cycle?

If you ran a self cleaning cycle and now the door won't open you may just need to wait a while. The door locks to avoid anyone from opening it as the over heats up to around 700 or more degrees to burn anything off. Sometimes what will happen however is that the heat will get to intense and cause the door lock mechanism to jamb. If the door doesn't open for you after a good few hours or so you can try unplugging the oven for a while to try and reset it. If not though you will have to go through the front panel and go down to manually unlock the door. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful. Keep me updated on the outcome too if you wouldn't mind. Good luck and glad I could help.

Ge profile self-Cleaning oven: how do I clean between the glass door. Where do I take t apart?


Hello Patricia
Oven doors by their design are very difficult, almost impossible to open then re-assemble. Not advised.
However, for the brave-hearted, oven doors can be open, eg to change a broken spring etc.
This involves dressing in protective gear as glass fiber wool insulation inside stove and door casing is very hazardous.
Strip half the stove to get to the hinge/arm mountings, unbolt so that door & hinge-arms come free, lay face-down on newspaper.
Using brute strength, unscrew Philips screws which have stuck solid from years of baked fat and heat.
Lift carerfully and try to avoid itchy glass fibres.
Glass inspection hatch insert may have stuck to silicone seal so press until it falls free.
Clean glass & re-assemble all in reverse order.
Trying to get the hinge-arms to line up while holding the heavy door is the most difficult part.
Can lead to stress, premature ageing....
Hope this helps :)
Clive.

How do i lock the self cleaning ge oven door when i put it on self clean


If you have a self cleaning oven, the door will lock automatically as the self cleaning begins. Give it some time ,it will happen. When cleaning is done it will take a while for the door to unlock. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

DO NOT KNOW HOW TO USE SELF CLEAN ON OVEN?


Hi April,

Without a model number, I'm shooting in the dark but I'll give you basic instructions that fit for most ovens, OK?

First off the door has to be locked PRIOR to cleaning. Look around the top of the oven door, there should be a handle (for mechanical models). Rotate this handle from the left to the right to lock it. If there's no handle, that means your oven locks the door by itself when "Clean Mode" is selected.

Now, at the control panel, select "Clean". At this point, you may have options on the length of time it should clean, select 3 hours and hit "Start".

There ya go! Hope this helps. If not, DON'T RATE THIS SOLUTION! Just write back and provide the model number, I'll give you exact instructions with that. Deal? Cool.
