    The cleaning cycle has been finished for three hours or more now. The oven feels cool to the touch.

Oven door is locked with food in it how to unlock asap


Hi , Anon !
My name is Ashlynn .
If your oven is locked , here's some ways you can unlock it :
  • 1 Look for a manual lever to unlock the oven. If there is one, it will probably swing back and forth horizontally, just below the upper edge of the oven door.
  • 2 Swing the locking lever, if one is present, all the way to the left. This should unlock the oven. If there is no manual lever to unlock the oven, it may be unlocked using push-button controls.
  • 3 Check to see if the oven is in a self-cleaning cycle, or has just completed a self-cleaning cycle. If so, the door will unlock automatically once the oven has finished the cleaning cycle and cooled completely, which may take several hours. You cannot unlock the oven before it has cooled.
  • 4 Unlock the "Clean/Off" button. Depending on the brand and model of your oven, the button may display both of these designations or just one. If your oven door is locked, but the oven is not warm and is not in a cleaning cycle, unlock it by pressing and holding the "Clean/Off" button.

    But it seems you have food inside so ,
    Press cancel on the cooking cycle , and let it cool to room temperature , and then try to open your oven .

    After cleaning the outside surfaces of the stove, the oven door is locked and does not unlock if we push the stop button. Display reads LOC. No self cleaning cycle was initiated. The stove is a Kenmore...


    What about child lock? Read user manual or try holding button for 10 seconds, might be two at once.
    (I bought a $200 control board and travelled 150 kilometers for that one....)

    Whirlpool GR396LXGQ oven comes on by itself & goes into clean cycle, code reads E2 -F3-


    Whirlpool F3 faults relate to temperature problems in the oven. In the case of the error E2-F3, F3 is the general fault code and E2 is the specific error code. An E0-F3 error indicates that the oven's temperature sensor is open; E1-F3, that the temperature sensor is shorted; E2-F3, that the oven temperature has exceeded the maximum rated 575 degrees Fahrenheit in "Cook" mode; and E3-F3, that the oven temperature has exceeded the maximum rated 950 degrees Fahrenheit in the clean mode. Here is the probe to order.

    The part comes with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

    Closed door, pushed clean button, but door lock button keeps flashing and door won't lock.


    Hello there and welcome to Fixya
    This is a fairly common problem with self cleaning ovens
    The problem normally is that the user has interrupted the clean cycle and the door is locked by default or the door lock assy has failed all together .
    Now here is the thing these ovens have a built in memory module that stores a number of commands that the user has input in it like self clean or broil ect.ect so what you will have to do is to clear the memory and it is done like this.
    First unplug the oven and do not touch it leave it sit for a minimum of 1 hour this will reset the memory module
    Now only after the hour is up plug in the oven and you may hear a beep ora click if so great wait a few min then you can press the cancel button then try to open the door again.

    I push the bake button for the lower oven and it begins to beep and displays a F9 on the digital display


    Hi

    F9 is a door lock error and to solve this issue you can hold the light switch for 15 seconds, this will reset the control. If it won't work then hold the light switch in and set the unit to clean and after a minute press cancel to cancel the clean cycle. If still it won't work then the door lock assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

    Stove reads F3 and won't cancel and oven won't shut off?


    Hello & Welcome to FixYa

    F3 error code indicates a open/shorted oven temperature sensor and to solve this problem the sensor needs replacement. If you wan to be sure before replacing the sensor then you can test it with a voltmeter for around 1100ohms....if it reads more then this then it needs replacement however, if the reading is around or less then 1100ohms then it is the control board that needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

    F1 is displayed on Maytag Electric Oven I ran the self-clean cycle on my Maytag Model MER5530 oven yesterday; before it completed F3 was displayed and beeps sounded. I pressed CANCEL, the F3...


    Hi

    F1 error means that you have either a bad ERC (clock) or a bad touch pad. To check these please follow these simple instructions:
    1. Disconnect power to stove
    2. Gain access to the back of the clock (electronic range control or ERC).
    3. Unplug the touch pad ribbon connector from the ERC. This will be a flat wire approx. 1 1/2" to 2" wide.
    4. Make sure everything is clear and will not short out when power is turned back on.
    5. Turn power back on to stove.
    6. Watch for the F1 and listen for the beep.
    7. If you get the F1 and beep, replace the ERC.
    8. If after approx. 30 minutes you do NOT get the F1 and hear the beep, replace the touch pad...
    thank u

    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.
