Wolf Dual Fuel 36 in range. Oven door won't latch closed.

Wolf Dual Fuel 36 in range. Following self clean mode and after the oven cooled down the oven door will not latch closed so the oven can't be used. I briefly recycled the self clean mode, to test operation of the oven door lock, and it locked successfully then unlocked when self clean cancelled but the oven door won't latch in normal cook mode. Can you please offer any suggestions/fixes. Thanks a lot.

Hey there gcato1, your problem is actually a protective feature designed to prevent you from getting burned. The self cleaning feature runs at extremely hot temps. Until the temperature reaches a safe level, the oven door will remain latched. Be patient and the problem will solve itself.

SOURCE: 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...

I have no owner's manual and need to know how to clean a "self-cleaning" over.

Manuals for many GE appliances are available here: . You will need the model number and there is a guide to find the plaque at the site. Most ranges will have the plaque under the left front burner, on the frame behind the oven door, on the frame behind the drawer or on the left leg behind the drawer or kickplate.

General cleaning procedure for self-cleaning: first use hot soapy water (non-abrasive cleaner, not an oven cleaner) to clean the frame around the oven and the oven door itself. Also clean large spills (acidic and sugary spills can damage the surface of the oven). Remove all of the racks, foil, pans and the broiler pan from inside the oven. Close the oven. Ventilate the kitchen well. Then it depends on the oven type.

If you have a touch pad, press the Clean button and adjust the time for the cleaning cycle (usually with the +/- touch pads). Then press Start. Press Cancel to stop the cycle. The oven will automatically lock and remain locked until the oven cools down after the cleaning cycle. See the documentation for timed cleaning. If you have a dual oven, you will need to press the Oven button for the one you want to clean.

If you have an older range, push the latch to the right and set the Oven cycle dial to Clean. After the oven has cooled, turn the oven cycle dial to Off and push the latch back to the left.

I hope this helps.

Iam using the self clean on the oven . Is there anything I need to know? Itook the racks out before starting the self clean.

Yes never use the self clean right before a holiday like thanksgiving.
99.9% of the time everything will be fine. The other time when you're going to need the oven the HSI will go bad a the oven will not relight. This happened to me. I love self clean. Do this on a cool day it will heat up the kitchen and kinda smell a little. Make sure all racks and cookie sheets are out, lock the door and hit the button.

I had this problem on my Wolf Dual Fuel oven after I removed the oven racks and oven rack supports in preparation for the self clean cycle. Wolf recommends this removal to avoid discoloration of the racks due to the extreme heat.
After cool down I re-installed the racks and the door wouldn't close fully. I messed around for quite a while, everything looked fine but then noticed that the rack support on the left hand side of the oven was not correctly mounted on the support studs/screws on the side of the oven wall. There are 4 keyhole slots on the rack support that have to aligned correctly with the studs if they're not the racks interfere with the fit of the door.

Wolf oven self-clean error 01

Well, ours is working now. We called Wolf, they said the Error 01 indicated a problem with the latching mechanism (that locks the oven during self clean).

We called the local repair outfit (they've been here several times before working on this range), they ordered a latch mechanism and arrived today to install it. The tech this time had worked at an electronic company that I also worked for about 10 years ago (I'm an electrical engineer). So we had a good time talking about the old days and working on the range - I'm always curious about such things. We removed the latching mechanism - its an assembly with a motor and a couple of switches that are used to start and stop the motor. We tested the switches and motor using a meter and power cord. Seemed to be OK. The next thing would be the control board - which we had replaced about 3 years ago - under warranty. Before removing the control board we reinstalled the latch mechanism - and, of course, everything worked fine.

We were both a little dismayed about the quality of the assembly of the range - the wiring looks more like a rat's nest than the tidy routing that we'd like to see.

So, bottom line, neither of us knows what the problem was. Could have been a food particle lodged in the switching mechanism, an intermittent connection or ???.

One thing I noticed as we checked out both ovens: We put the small oven (the one that was having problems) in self clean for a couple of minutes - was OK. Then we turned it off and turned the larger oven to clean mode - when we did that, "OPP" appeared on the display. The tech said that was because the latch of the smaller oven was not in its stop position yet. We gave it a few more seconds then tried clean mode on the other oven and it was fine. I mention that because OPP appeared on the small oven once or twice when we (my wife and I) were initially trying to figure out what the problem was. There's probably a hint in there somewhere as to what the real problem was.

At any rate, its working again ($115 later) but I'm not real confident that it will continue. Next time, I'll open it up myself (not recommended). <g>.

Self cleaning oven door locked before I got the door closed.

Try holding in on the door switch while resetting the clean cycle.
This should rotate the latch. Once the cycle starts, cancel it. The latch should go to the unlock position.

You will have to hold in on the door switch during all these steps.

If this does not work, post back with the complete model number from the oven and I will see what else I can come up with.
