    I have the same problem. We used the self clean function and a day later when we wanted to use the oven we just found out that we can't unlock the door. I'm looking through internet to see if someone had the same issue. If I get the answer, I'll post it for sure. But what a pain !!!

I finally got it !!!!

Click on the Clean Button - Then click on the Up arrow - a 3:00 hours should appear on the screen (In fact you are fooling the system by starting another self-clean session. Then click on Cancel, this should unlock the door. When door is open you might then get a warning message but it should disappear after a couple of seconds.

Oven door is locked with food in it how to unlock asap


Hi , Anon !
My name is Ashlynn .
If your oven is locked , here's some ways you can unlock it :
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    But it seems you have food inside so ,
    Press cancel on the cooking cycle , and let it cool to room temperature , and then try to open your oven .

    How does the self-clean feature work on a Frigidaire CFEF366EMB model?


    Hi Beverly,

    I understand that you are looking to run your self-clean feature on your Frigidaire range, model# CFEF366EMB.

    -To start this you will remove all racks and make sure that any excessive spillovers are cleaned up as best as you can.
    -Next you will press the "Clean" button, and the display will show "---".
    -Press the up or down arrows to select the length of time you want the oven to clean. Usually 2 or 3 hours.
    -The door will automatically lock once your time has been chosen and the "LOCK" indicator light will flash. DO NOT open the door while the light is flashing. (it takes about 15 seconds for the oven door to lock).
    -"Cln" will appear in the display during the self-clean cycle and the "LOCK" light will continue to glow until the self-cleaning cycle is complete or cancelled and the oven has cooled.

    When the self-clean cycle has completed:
    -The time of day or "END" will appear in the display window and the "Clean" and "LOCK" light will continue to glow.
    -Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 HOUR and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can be opened.
    -If "END" is in the display and the Clean indicator light remains ON, press the "CLEAR/OFF" button and the time of day will appear on the display.
    -When the oven is cool, wipe away any residue or powdered ash with a damp cloth or paper towel.

    -Best Regards-

    How do i operate the self cleaning function


    Hello - Before using the self-cleaning cycle of the appliance, remove the broiler pan and any utensils stored in the appliance. Also remove any excess spillovers in the oven cavity. Allow the oven to cool before cleaning. During the self-cleaning cycle, the outside of the wall oven can become very hot to the touch.

    Typically to set the controls for a self-clean the first step is to confirm that the clock shows the correct time of the day. Press CLEAN. "---" appears in the display. Press the UP ARROW or DOWN ARROW once. "3:00" appears in the display for a 3 hour cycle. To change to a 2 hour cycle press DOWN ARROW"2:00" appears in the display. As soon as the controls are set, the motor drive lock will begin to close automatically and the "LOCK" indicator light will flash. DO NOT open the oven door while the light is flashing (it takes about 15 seconds for the over door to lock). "CLn" will appear in the display during the Self-Clean cycle and the "LOCK" light will glow until the Self-Cleaning cycle is complete or cancelled and the oven temperature has cooled.

    When the Self-Clean cycle has completed, the time of the day or "End" will appear in the display window and the "Clean" and "LOCK" light will continue to glow. Once the over has cooled down for about 1 HOUR and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can be opened. If "End" is the display and the Clean indicator light remains ON, press CLEAR/OFF. The time of the day will appear in the display.

    If it becomes necessary to stop or interrupt a Self-Cleaning cycle, press CLEAR/OFF. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 HOUR and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can be opened. Restart the Self-Clean cycle once all conditions have been corrected.

    My oven door is locked. It is not cleaning. I have tried turning off the breaker. help i have a turkey to put in the oven. Is there a sequence of buttons I can push to unlock it?


    Hello,

    Here are some solution on how to unlock the door of your oven ans do self cleaning below.

    IF you can locate the model number tag (bottom left of door opening) you can look up the manual at www.geappliances.com
    The only button on your stove that should make the door lock would be the clean button (self clean model) if that is pressed simply hit the clear/off or cancel key and wait for the door to unlock. IF the self clean option ran for an hour or so, you will have to wait for the oven to cool down before the lock can unlock (safety feature).
    hope this helps you out please rate this solution it helps get better results for our customers like you

    The lock will not release after cleaning


    This is GE's trouble shooting advise:

    Range - Oven Door Won't Unlock After Self Clean

    The Oven Door has been Locked Accidentally:

    • If no food or utensils are in oven, put it into a short self-clean cycle (1-2 hours).


    • If there is food in the oven, let the oven cool to room temperature and try to unlatch the door.


    • With electronic ranges there is a small chance that turning the circuit breaker off for a few minutes and turning it back on can release the door. latch to the "off"


    • Note: Do not force the latch at anytime!

    Door Will Not Unlock After Cleaning:

    On models with mechanical latches:
    • Once the oven is cool after a self-clean cycle (approximately 30-90 minutes), slide the latch over to the left.(Some older models have a latch release button that must be pushed in while sliding the latch over.)
    Note: Some models with oven Set and Temperature knobs must have those knobs set in the Clean position before the latch can be moved to the left. If your door won't unlock, try turning those knobs back to Clean, then slide the latch over.

    If the above suggestions do not work try the following to unlock your door:
    1. Disconnect power to range for 30 seconds.
    2. Reconnect power and see if door will unlatch.
    3. If door does not unlatch, and you do have food in the oven, wait for oven to cool completely and try again. If it still will not open you will need service.
    4. If door does not unlatch, and you do not have food in the oven, set the oven up to clean for 1-2 hours.
    5. Wait approximately 30 minutes and try to unlock the door.
    6. If the door unlocks, the control has reset itself and there should not be any other problems.
    7. If the door will not unlock or if you would like to schedule a service appointment, please contact GE Consumer Service at 1-800-432-2737 or schedule a service appointment on-line.
    Note: Under no circumstances should you ever force the door or latch open.

    Started to self-clean, locked the door, etc. Had


    Hi.

    The appliance door is probably locked in consequence of the self cleaning cycle.

    Unplug power cord, and allow the oven cooling down for few hours.

    If the is still locked, then the high temperature generated in self cleaning cycle may have damaged the door latch, or the electronic control.

    Parts must be tested to discover the fault.

    Call Frigidaire at the number listed on the owners manual.

    Regards.

    I JUST CALLED FRIGIDAIRE AND GOT INSTRUCTIONS FOR SELF CLEANING:

    1. TAKE OUT THE RACKS UNLESS YOU DON'T MIND THEM TARNISHING
    2. TURN THE "SELECTOR" AND/OR "OVEN" DIALS TO THE LOCK (OR CLEAN) POSITION
    3. PRESS THE "COOK TIME" BUTTON
    4. SET THE CLOCK TO 2 OR 3 HOURS (I.E., "2:00" OR "3:00"), DEPENDING ON HOW DIRTY THE OVEN IS
    5. PRESS "START" BUTTON
    6. YOU WILL HEAR THE MOTORIZED LOCK MOVE INTO PLACE; WAIT ABOUT 30 SECONDS, THE DOOR SHOULD BE LOCKED AND CLEANING WILL BEGIN.
    7. CLEANING WILL STOP AFTER THE TIME SELECTED (I.E., 2 / 3 HRS) AND THE DOOR SHOULD AUTOMATICALLY UNLOCK
