F7 shows instead of door lock

This happens with a lot of ovens. It's because the mechanism that locks the door is stuck. When the door doesn't lock you can't do a self clean. They don't want you to be able to open the door while the oven is 800 degrees? or so. Look just below the little button that gets pushed in when the door is closed, upper left, and you should see a vertical slot. This is where a little lever comes out and grabs the slot on the door. There is a microswitch inside that tells the oven if the lever has come out or not. Your lever is stuck.
You can test this in a totally dangerous way by opening the door, holding in the button, and turning on the self cleaning. If everything is correct you will see the lever come out to grab and lock the door, but your's won't because it's stuck. Jiggle it or push on it or pull on it with needle nosed pliers. It frees up pretty easily. But when it does, the oven will go into self clean, which you don't want it to do with the door open, so turn it off, close the door and try again. It should work fine.

The lock on the oven door is stuck on lock and the oven door is open.

OK, this is oven door lock mechanism failuer. check the connections that lead form the door lock mechanism to the control board. if the wiring harness is in good condition and, the connectors are not corroded, simply replace the door lock mechanism(assembly).

Oven Lock stuck open before start of self-cleaning cycle

Sounds like you bent the door where the lock is. You might have to replace the door.

Oven door stuck

To open the door, raise the oven top and use a a flat head screwdriver to open the lock manually.
The door will still lock itself when you close it, so this is only usefull to get your food out.

Kenmore Oven Door Lock Stuck Out

We had this same problem. We found that pushing the censor button/switch on the upper left rim of the oven's inside moved the lock and made it capable to unlock, or purchase a pizza pizzaz.

Jenn air oven stuck closed after attempt to activate self-cleaning

The lock motor may have failed. Most often, bending a coat hanger into a hook and sliding from the right side as you move the door to the right,will allow you to release the lock and open the door.
