Oven door won't open

Hi - My husband tried to use the self-cleaning feature in our new home's oven, but turned it off before it finished. Since then, the door will not open (I moved it manually, but then when I shut it, the door still latches shut and won't open). It is a Kenmore range with the model #362.75571691. Thanks in advance for your help!

    I used the self cleaning feature with my GE Spectra Model # J B878W B2WW . A fire started on the bottom-I guess from leftover grease. I turned off the oven and unplugged it. Now the door won't open. I don't want to pay for a servcie man-any help?

    My Maytag oven door seems locked. Haven't used the cleaner, it just won't open. How can you fix it "with an open door" if the door won't open?

Best bet on this one is to replace the lock assembly. Although you could make a minor adjustment that may help. what you would do is with the door open put latch in lock position and then slightly bend latch to the left, making sure not to twist it. This works about 80% of the time.

SOURCE: Whilrpool Self Cleaning Range Door won't unlock

try this 1. Verify error code by pressing and holding CANCEL/OFF key for 5 seconds.
Momentarily (less than 5 sec.) press CANCEL key again to remove error code
display.
2. Press and hold any key for 1 minute until F2 E0 code is displayed.
3. Cancel F2 E0 error code.
4. Program and start the clean mode. Observe to see if door locks. If it does not,
inspect the locking mechanism from the solenoid to the latch pawl and door to
find the cause of the problem. If the door is not locking, then 1 minute from the
start of clean, the F5 E1 code will again be displayed. Steps 1 through 3 will
have to be repeated before another clean can be started.
5. Once any mechanical problems with the latch mechanism have been corrected,
program and start a clean cycle (after, if necessary, clearing F5 E1 error code)
to ensure proper operation of the door lock. Immediately cancel the clean mode to observe proper operation of door unlock

SOURCE: KENMORE SELF CLEANING FEATURE WILL NOT ACTUATE

Firstly, empty the oven of stuff, including the little thermostat that dangles from the grate, if you value it's life.

Next, close oven door.

Press CLEAN; it beeps and green LED illuminates. LED readout says " -- -- --".
Press the UP arrow; it beeps and LED readout says: ''3:00'', for a three hour burn.

DOOR LOCKED LED blinks while door locking mechanism actuates, then stays on steady. Burner ignites, and it's off to the races.
The exterior of the Range becomes quite HOT, providing an excellent opportunity to educate young children of the concept. ;)

The Cleaning Cycle can be stopped at any time by pressing the OFF/CANCEL button for ~3 seconds. The door will remain locked until the internal temperature of the oven falls below 400F. Nice toy.

SOURCE: self cleaning oven instructions

you can google it or just push the clean button and it will most likely default to 3 hours and all you have to do is push start and after it is done wipe out the ashes with warm soapy water DO NOT USE OVEN CLEANER as this will destroy the finish of the self clean cavity

Door of the oven will not open after using self cleaning


Hi Virginia.

if you just finished, the door will not usually unlock until the oven is back to room temperature. This is a safety feature to avoid fires or bad burns resulting from the extreme temperatures used during the self-clean.

I had the same prob. Just today I figured it out. My husband tried for a hour the other day and it just took me 30. Min. Lift up the burnner part. You will have to unscrew a cover that sticks up on the front part. Open that section and this is what I done. I beat it with a hammer to ser it it worked, but no. I played with it then I took a screw out on the lever and wool

I turned on the cleaning switch for my self cleaning wall oven and now it seems to be finished but mthe door lock is still on and the oven keeps making a buzzing noise what do I do?


If the lock does not open after the oven has cooled down, then try this: First, unplug the range or shut off the circuit breaker for ten minutes. Plug the range back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and try moving the door lock lever or opening the door. Next, set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for twenty minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever or opening the door

DOOR SHOWS OPEN BUT IT IS NOT


After self cleaning the range the door won't open....
The oven door lock needs approximately 1 hour to cool down before the oven door can be opened after a self cleaning cycle has finished. If the lock does not open after the oven has cooled down, you can try....1) Unplugging the range or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Plug the range back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and try moving the door lock lever 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 or opening the door.


Hope this may help;

Self-Clean gets too hot on JTP56 double-oven


Your husband is correct, kind of. You should not try self clean again until you get the oven repaired. You have a temp sensor going out. I doubt that the oven actually got too hot, most likely the resistor in the sensor is failing as it heats up and giving a false temp reading.Since the lower oven was operating at the time, it is probably the sensor in the lower oven. Don't use it for baking until you get it repaired. It will go out completely and shut down both ovens. You should be able to get a new sensor for around $30 and they are not hard to replace.

The oven won't set your house on fire during clean mode if the cabinets were built with the correct air space and dimensions, but they do get very hot, about 800 degrees F. Most ovens give no trouble during the clean cycle, but if there is any weak components in the electronics system it will show up then. It will give you less trouble over time if you don't use the self clean mode and just manually clean it.
