If you unplug the range and remove the lower rear cover on your left side you should see the motor with 2 switch's on it. There are 3 possibilitys with it. One of the switch's on the assembly is not working or the light switch for the door is not good. You also can disconect the lead to the motor and connect a power cord to it and that will unlock the door so you can check the dor switch also. if you do not feel comfortable powering up the lock motor then you should call a repair man. But one of the switches is not letting the computer know the dor is locked.

SOURCE: Self-Clean gets too hot on JTP56 double-oven

Your husband is correct, kind of. You should not try self clean again until you get the oven repaired. You have a temp sensor going out. I doubt that the oven actually got too hot, most likely the resistor in the sensor is failing as it heats up and giving a false temp reading.Since the lower oven was operating at the time, it is probably the sensor in the lower oven. Don't use it for baking until you get it repaired. It will go out completely and shut down both ovens. You should be able to get a new sensor for around $30 and they are not hard to replace.

The oven won't set your house on fire during clean mode if the cabinets were built with the correct air space and dimensions, but they do get very hot, about 800 degrees F. Most ovens give no trouble during the clean cycle, but if there is any weak components in the electronics system it will show up then. It will give you less trouble over time if you don't use the self clean mode and just manually clean it.

Probably a bad door lock solenoid. That is some kind of door lock problem. Trouble is they are not all the same. This training manual shows locations of model number. Perhaps if you post that I might can come up with a tech sheet and you would get a better answer. see page 4

Scholtes FE46 and the door is locked. Also no clock/timer lights. Temp/function and oven work but is locked even though completely cold.


Here are a couple of things to try:
  1. Unplug the unit or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Plug the unit back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and gently try moving the door lock lever (is so equipped) or opening the door.
  2. Set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for 15 minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever (is so equipped) or opening the door.

Kenmore Electric Oven won't bake after using self-clean!


The oven temperature is regulated by a temperature sensor when placed in self clean the sensor is removed from the circuit and full power is applied to both the bake and broil elements causing an the temperature to exceed in some some models up to 1,000 F. I would recommend against using self clean for the simple fact that no oven cavity to this date has been designed to withstand that high of a temperature and therefore excess heat is passed upward resulting in damaged lock mechanisms, control boards, and other electronic components. The most common complaint I have had with built in ovens besides the element burning out, is the oven door locked shut. When I get to the house and I ask to tell me a little bit of whats going on the story always starts " well, I was using the self clean option" or some variation of the sort. Now comes the bad news, you fall under the catagory of damaged electronics. The control has been damaged and I wouldn't doubt if the sensor as well.The part number for the control is WB50T10056 and cost about 108.20. The sensor part number is going to be WB21X5301 and cost about 94.00 On the second part I would call my local parts distributor and as if there is a sub part for it and self yourself about 50 bucks or so. Sorry, and good luck.

We are using self clean feature. continuous beep about 20 minutes into cleaning screen shows F# locked door and beeps nonstop. what can we do to stop beeping but still proced with self cleaning?


F3 is a bad oven temp sensor. The sensor fail F3 code will appear if during self clean that it senses temps above 915F, or there is an open / short in the temp sensor. The only thing you can do is replace the sensor. Just getting the oven door open can be a real pain as you have unlatch the oven door lock to get to the screws that are in the top lip above the oven door so that you can change the sensor. Depending on model you may have to reach through a burner to manually unlatch the oven door lock or remove the side panel of the oven to manually unlatch the door lock. On most units It will not continue to self clean with an F3 code detected. Once an F3 code is detected the ERC shuts off power to the bake and broil elements so that it does not catch fire from a run away temperature condition.

My GE drop electric range will not turn on the self cleaning unit. I set the time and push start and it flashes clean oven, door lock, however, the door will not lock. I hear a clicking sounds, it beeps...


You will need to press the stop/cancel button, next press the self clean button, you do not have to set the time the cleaning cycle takes approx 3-1/2 to 4 hours and the cool down takes another 45 minutes to one hour, it will clean and cool down and you do not need to interrupt this cycle, it will let you know when it is complete.

Door lock lites keeps flashing but the door is not locked


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.

Kenmore Oven going crazy


The bang may have been an element arcing over.  Turn off the power and remove the element.  If it shows any form of damage, replace it.  If you're not sure, use a continuity checker to check it.  If you have two elements...do this for both.  You will likely find the problem.
