"Locked Door" flashes after interrupting self clean...

Thanks Catriver, I think I'm doing something wrong. I pull the power cord and hold the cooking time and delay start pads together while my wife plugs the range back in. At this time, the screen says 72 (degrees) and "test". I press "8" and nothing changes, the screen still just says "test. I tried pressing and holding the "self clean" pad, but nothing happens (tried holding it for about 10 or 15 seconds). The whole time this is happening, it's still flashing "Locked Door". What am I doing wrong? ----- My original problem ----- My wife was cleaning the face of the range when she accidentally hit the self clean button. Not knowing what to do, she just reacted and opened the door. Initially, the locking mechanism had moved over into the lock position so we couldn't shut the door. I figured out how to raise the lid and get into the locking mechanism to move it back manually to the "open" position so we can at least shut the door now. However, it still flashes "Locked Door" and we can't do anything with the stove portion of it. I suspect there's a solenoid that still thinks the mechanism is in the locked position that needs to be reset. I've tried running it through the self clean cycle and recycling power on the unit. No change. Suggestions? TIA, Robert ----- catriver posted the following ----- Robert, see if you can get it back home by using the test funtion. Kill the power to the oven. Turn it back on and on the control press and hold the cooking time and delay start pads together. While hold these keys, press the number 8 pad. The words test should appear in the display. Now press and hold the self clean pad and it should cycle the cam through the whole process. Here is what you should see. 1 test (unit is in unlocked position 0 test (moving toward latched pos. 2 test (latched position 0 test (moving toward unlocked pos. 1 test (unit is in unlocked pos. Press cancel to exit the test. See if this gets you going again, let me know, Catriver

    Chris,

    Thanks, but there was no change following the instructions you have for the motorized switch (since it's this particular model, there is of course, not a manual lock).

    Just to make sure we're on the same page, the locking arm itself is no longer in the "locked" position after I raised the range lid and manually move it back. However the stove "thinks" it's still locked and that's why it's flashing "Locked Door".

    Other suggestions?

    Thanks.
    Robert

Hi robertkbrown...you may want to try to following steps.....good luck my friend...chris If ?LOC DOOR? is flashing in the display of your range or oven, and the self-clean cycle has not been selected, follow the steps below to reset your control: Motorized Switch 1. With the door open, locate the door jamb switch on the face of the oven. It will look like a small black post or dowel. 2. Push it in until the oven cavity light goes off, indicating that the oven believes the door is closed. 3. While you hold the door jamb switch in this position, complete the following steps. 4. Press the Clean pad, wait 10 seconds. 5. When the cycle initiates, press the clear/off or cancel pad immediately to cancel it. 6. Wait 10 seconds for the display to clear. 7. The door should unlock and there should not be a need for service. Manual Switch 1. Press the Clean pad. 2. Close the door. 3. Slide the latch to lock the door. 4. Hit the cancel button immediately. 5. Unlock the door.

Pushed the clean button, the oven locked, and the screen started beeping and flashing f9 or f7. I hit cancel, and the oven is still locked and the clean button is sill flashing.... It has been 10 hrs!


The F9 code indicates there is a problem with the door lock.

Try disconnecting the power to the range for 10 seconds and reconnecting. Open the oven door and hold the door switch plunger in while you try these things. Put the control into clean for 5 minutes then cancel clean. You must hold the door switch plunger in for the 5 minutes.

Try canceling the clean cycle without putting the control into clean.

GE Spectra XL44 Gas Oven, flashing "Locked Door". Can't use oven or close door


I had the same problem happen tonight. I have an XL44 self-cleaning gas range. We unplugged it for several minutes and pressed 'cancel' a bunch of times--neither worked. We finally lucked out--opened the oven door and pressed a black button on the upper left side of the front of the oven. It turned out the flashing words and unlocked our door. Weird. There was nothing in the manual about this...

Oven shut down during Self-cleaning


tde, sounds like your thermal fuse (TC0) opened on the back side of the oven. If this opens, it will shut the oven down. This happens alot during self cleaning on built ins. Sometimes I have to re-route the tco to a different area to prevent this from happening. Your part number is 4451442. You will have to pull the oven out far enough to remove the back paneling and replace the fuse....Catriver..post back.
