Electric range surface elements not working after self clean cycle.


It sounds like it is broken. You can bypass it by connecting the 2 wires together. This should be fine until you replace it. They aren't that expensive.

I have the Samsung Electric Induction Range FTQ307NWGX. I had it on self cleaning overnight and experienced a power blip during the night. In the morning found oven totally out with door still locked. ...


Since I have not worked on one nor do I own one take this as a suggestion. According to the manual, you can't use the cooktop when in the self clean mode.

If I were you, I would make sure that the cooktop was shut off and then try to get the self clean to start again. If it will complete the self clean cycle then it will unlock.

BTW you can download the manual from Samsung, that has the troubleshooting guide for free.

Oven door won't unlock after self clean


Try unplugging it. If that does not work, try to use a flat object like a butter knife, to move the latch (between handle, and top of stove.) Other than that... have a handy guy you know come look at it....

Oven Door Locked


the oven door does lock during self clean, otherwise it will not work. however, the door is supposed to unlock after the oven has cooled. if it is still locked, turn the oven to self clean and wait about a minute and then hit cancel and see if the door unlocks. if not, there may be a probelm with the door lock mechanism.

Need help unlock oven after self cleaning jenn air jjw9527


The temperature setting must be set on "Cleaning" and the oven cooking dial to "Clean"; otherwise the door will not open and forcing will damage the mechanism. Also, before the door will open, the internal temperature must drop to a safe level and a red "cleaning" light must go off, after the temperature drops inside the oven.
