Question about Dacor Epicure ERD36 Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range
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!
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.

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
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

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
