Hotpoint oven self cleaner mode; cant unlock the door

I set the self cleaner and sprayed oven cleaner and then realized after about 10 minutes that spraying the cleaner might not have been the right thing to do, so I turned the mode off and I can not unlock the door. Please help. thank you.

Hello. I want to help you. I can understand why you did what you did. Now though I want you to forget about the open cleaner and just set the self cleaner again and let it run its course. get back to me if it won't let you do that as there are other things you can do then.

My oven is saying unlock door after self cleaning but the door is open


It's likely that the door switch has failed, or stuck in the depressed position from grease or your oven cleaner spray solution. To correct this problem, remove the door switch and inspect with a multimeter for continuity connection.

Cant unlock oven door


Hi, 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. 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. If these procedures fail to correct the condition, the lock must usually be accessed and moved manually to open the door.
*Note: Some model ovens require the oven door to be manually unlatched before the controls are returned to the OFF position or else the door may not be able to be unlocked. Check the owner's manual for proper operating procedures.

Just purchase a good oven cleaner, generally available at most supermarkets, they can be a spray type cleaner, or a gel that you brush on, personally, I prefer the spray on type of cleaner.

    My oven door is locked. It is not cleaning. I have tried turning off the breaker. help i have a turkey to put in the oven. Is there a sequence of buttons I can push to unlock it?


    Hello,

    Here are some solution on how to unlock the door of your oven ans do self cleaning below.

    IF you can locate the model number tag (bottom left of door opening) you can look up the manual at www.geappliances.com
    The only button on your stove that should make the door lock would be the clean button (self clean model) if that is pressed simply hit the clear/off or cancel key and wait for the door to unlock. IF the self clean option ran for an hour or so, you will have to wait for the oven to cool down before the lock can unlock (safety feature).
    hope this helps you out please rate this solution it helps get better results for our customers like you

    Cant unlock self clean oven door


    Door lock motor has probably failed.....Self clean on many ovens can be a self destruct mode. Door latch motors, sensor probes and even the electronic controls can be destroyed by this operation. Suggest oven cleaner method.
