Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

After canceling self cleaning on my GE Hotpoint oven, I was able to unlock the door and open the oven door. When I try to use the broil or bake feature it keeps saying "un lock dor" The door is not lock why does it keep telling me to unlock it? How do I fix this? I tried unplugging and setting the clock forward nothing works.

Hello,

You will need to allow oven to cool, the temperature is one thousand degrees plus while the oven is cleaning. Until the oven cools it will not open, this is a safety caution. If it will not open after it is totally cooled, it may be stuck, try pushing on the door or pulling it out a bit while trying to move the lever.

Always consult the owners manual when using the cleaning mode on your oven. Be sure it is fully cooled before cleaning any residue out of oven area.

Lost instructions - I have my oven cleaning how


Typical oven self clean cycle is 3 hours. Oven needs to cool down to under 550 degrees before door will unlock. Download a use and care manual at http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/

We have a GE convection oven. Every time I go to turn on the oven, the words "DOOR" come on and then the oven shuts off. So frustrating. My husband's hungry!


Hi,

there are several possible causes for this symptom. The most common are...in my experience.

1) the self clean monitor switch is "open" (have you recently done a self-clean cycle ?)

2) the electronic relay control (erc) is faulty. (hopefully not)

It is most likely the first possible cause. The first thing to try of which you can do on your own is shutting off the 40amp breaker to the unit for a couple of minutes, or unplugging the unit from the wall, they both accomplish the same thing. If that doesn't yield any remedy, try selecting a self clean cycle, allow the door to lock, then cancel the cycle and allow it to unlock. The lock switch (s) may just be stuck in the wrong position for normal bake and broil operations.

Let me know how that goes and we'll deal with whatever happens as a result, hopefully success and a yummy supper for everyone !

Good Luck :)

Kenmore gas range will not stop beeping showing F9 in window


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.
