One thermostat (sometimes at the back of the stove) is open/blown or the door locking assembly has failed. To open the door you may remove the back of the stove; take the door locking assembly apart to release the long wire that hooks the door close.
On some models you can see the locking the latching mechanism through a **** in the top front and can play with the mechanisms there to release the door.
Then you can begin to figure why the door latched in the first place.

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: Can't Unlock oven doors after "self-Clean" maytag double oven

I was advised to disconnect power for at least 60 seconds to clear the control board. I did this several times with no luck getting the door unlocked. However, a few hours later, the door did finally unlock. Not sure what ultimately caused the door to unlock, but happy that I did not have to replace the control board.

SOURCE: After using the self-clean cycle, display panel went black and oven door stayed locked.

Happens alot dont feel bad , self clean mode runs the elements at 500 deg. to cook off everything possible , what happens is the cabinet gets to hot and heats saftey temp. fuses until they go out and they are not resetable. they are always located in different areas of ranges but usaully in the back. you can ohm them out to check them if you have a meter.let me know if you have any other questions.

I have a McClary Charm A2746 wood stove.I wanted to know what year it is?


Kathy, There should be a certification plate on the stove some where, listing make, model, year of manufacture, etc., open doors/drawers etc. to see if tag is riveted on inside panel or frame. Check the attached links they may help determine the age of your stove, Good luck.

Cleaning my self-clean oven


Turn the oven to "clean" and lock the door if the oven has a manual door lock. The oven may have an automatic timer for the clean setting. If it doesn't then you'll have to turn it off yourself in three or four hours. Don't be surprised if the oven puts out a very foul smell while it's cleaning itself as that's normal for an oven that hasn't been cleaned in so long. After it's done, wait for the oven to cool and then wipe out the ash from the inside of the oven.
