How to open oven door after self cleaning? oven


I was advised to disconnect power for at least 60 seconds to clear the control board. I did this several times with no luck getting the door unlocked. However, a few hours later, the door did finally unlock. Not sure what ultimately caused the door to unlock, but happy that I did not have to replace the control board
or
Try this to get the oven door open. Turn off the power, take a coat hanger and bent at 90 degree angle about 2 inches long. Turn the wire side ways along the top of the door, 2 inches to the right of center, turn your wire so the bent piece is down. Now pull out on the door and move the wire to the left. This should unlock your door so you can get to dinner. What may have happened is that the oven sensor has locked the door for safety. That does happen

I entered the "quick" option for self-cleaning my


It has a safety that will not allow the door to open while the temperature is high in the oven. oven temps can reach 700 degrees during the self clean cycle. allow the unit to cool completely and see if it works then. if not, let us know.

Our Kenmore oven door also remained locked after I manually switched the cleansing level just over the oven door to the right side in hoping of locking the oven door to prevent my 19M daughter from opening...


You are correct. The locking mechanism has a heat sensor which will not allow you to open it while its hot. You should only use the lever while in self-clean mode. It will not let you open it because it heats to about 900 degrees during self-clean and could cause serious harm if anyone opened it while it was that hot.

How do I self clean my gallery series fridgidaire?


Some of the self cleaning ranges require that the door be locked before the self-cleaning cycle will work. If your oven door has a manual locking lever then make sure it is completely latchedthen press the self-clean button. Also make sure the dooris completely closed because if there is not a manual latch then it will be a auto latching system. If not then there could be a problem with the button on the control panel for the self cleaning option.

Oven door locked and will not unlock


hi friend,
step 1
Look for a manual lever to unlock the oven. If there is one, it will probably swing back and forth horizontally, just below the upper edge of the oven door.
  • Step 2 Swing the locking lever, if one is present, all the way to the left. This should unlock the oven. If there is no manual lever to unlock the oven, it may be unlocked using push-button controls.
  • Step 3 Check to see if the oven is in a self-cleaning cycle, or has just completed a self-cleaning cycle. If so, the door will unlock automatically once the oven has finished the cleaning cycle and cooled completely, which may take several hours. You cannot unlock the oven before it has cooled.
  • Step 4 Unlock the "Clean/Off" button. Depending on the brand and model of your oven, the button may display both of these designations or just one. If your oven door is locked, but the oven is not warm and is not in a cleaning cycle, unlock it by pressing and holding the "Clean/Off" button.
  • jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); Who Can Help Sponsored hope this helps u

    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

    I cant get my viking 30inch electric range to self clean. it has a self clean spot on the knob and on the temperature knob but when both in place nothing happens.


    You might need to lock the oven door to get the self clean to go on. My stove had a lever which locked the oven door when you pushed it sideways. It was in the middle above the oven door, in the gap... Hope this helps!
