    I used the self cleaning mode and now my over wont unlock. Help!

    After using the clean button the control panel "stop time control" started to beep repeatedly during the cooling down process. I unplugged the range and reset the time. The oven door has been locked for the past two days. I have tried to cancel without success, and I have tried to find a program reset without success. We do not have a product user manual. OUR MODEL NUMBER IS ACTUALLY MR5750ADW, but this is the closest one I can find.

    I had the same problem, cleaned my oven now the panel is black. i tried to reset my circuit breaker but that didn't fix the problem. Of course this happend on Thanksgiving. Has anyone found a solution to unlock the door and getting the oven to work? I need this ASAP.

    I am so frustrated with this range. This problem happened last year. My husband actually broke the door open and then ordered the parts online to replace them.

    Beware -- I came home one night to find the house filled with smoke. The oven was off, but the broiler went on (by itself) fullblast like it was in self cleaning mode. And since the oven was off, the only way to shut it was by the circuit breaker, then unplug it. Every time we tried to plug it in again, the broiler goes on full blast without the oven being on.

    The range is now at the curb. And Sears was not sympathetic to the fact that my house could have burned down. I just ordered a Maytag.

    I have an older Tappan self cleaning oven. I set the self cleaning mode and now after 3 days the door still will not unlock. Does anyone know how to either bypass the lock, unlock the lock, or somehow open the door?

    Please email me at [email protected] ASAP. Many thanks.

    I purchased older model used oven and when we first plugged it in, the loc light came on and the buzzer sounded and wouldn't go off. We unplugged it and the buzzer stopped, but when the door was locked the next time it wouldn't unlock at all.

  • Anonymous May 27, 2008

    I fixed it by turning the timer to 1 min., holding in the oven light button (inside door) and clear button at the same time. It only took a few seconds for the lock to disengage and the door to be able to close.

    Thank you. It worked. I turned the timer to 1 min., holding in the oven light button and clear button at the same time. When the oven blinked "END," I pressed "Timer Off." Door unlocked. Yeah!

My oven door was locked with the door open. Tried turning off power overnight. NO help. Tried to get my mechanically challenged husband to fix it. NO help. Thank God for your website! I set the time to 1 minute, held in the oven light and pressed the cancel light until the timer counted down to 0 (zero). I am a cake baker and would have been freaked out to have to but another oven.

The door latch hook pulls door and swing to close. The door unlatch cycle takes 60 sec. If it does not unlatch, Slide a thin wire below the latch from side of the door and then try to make a "U" shape of the wire arround the neck of the door hook and pull the latch from side. I used sodering wire.

Maytag Range:
What worked for me was - holding the oven handle and lifting up on it and moving it left to right, back and forth, you will feel it fall into place and it will pop right open for you. This happened to me twice already and worked both times.Don't bother calling tech support they only want to send a technician out, and that will cost the same as a new range top. Hope this works for you. Good Luck!!

We unplugged the unit and started it again. It worked! We were nervous because this is why we had to purchase a new oven. the cost to repair the old was just short of buying a new one.
Hope this helps somebody in the future. Our model barely shows up on the web from a popular manufacturer. That was interesting!

My oven has been cool for a day still nothing :-(

Posted on Nov 23, 2007

If you find yourself with a lock latch in the lock position with the door open (maybe as a result of opening the door right after activating the clean process before the latch has set) you should be able to correct it by pressing the "Clear Off" button and waiting awhile. Even after awhile it will not de-activate the lock until you "fool" the oven to think the door is closed by pushing in on the oven light activator switch located on the door panel for a few seconds. Good Luck!

If wiring to door lock motor are ok then the motor may need to be replaced. Need to check the resistance of the motor with a meter. If it checks open then the motor is bad.

My error message says FC the oven door is locked I tried unplugging but that did not work . The cleaning cycle was stopped right after it was accidently started.

The self clean option usually can't be stopped once its started. you may have to let it finish its cycle (a few hours) and see what happens from there. It also sounds like you could have a bad door sensor switch.

LOC for oven door is unable to unloc

Put the oven in Self Clean mode for 3 minutes and then cancel.. if if that will release the relay that controls the lock. If that doesn't work, Unplug the oven for 10 mintues, then plug it back in holding the CLEAR button down. If neither of those work you will need to contact a service repair man.

If you have a multimeter check for resistance on the lock motor. Can access from the back by taking the panel off.  Make sure you unplug the range first.  If the lock shows open then it is bad and causing your problem.  Most likely this is your problem.  The motor has to be good for the oven to work.  Let me know what you find.
