For some reason I get the same error code every time we have a power outage. If you push and hold the "lower off" button for about ten or 15 seconds it will unlock and reset. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: When I try to start the self-cleaning oven,

there are switches under the cooktop that go bad frequently. i do not recommend ever using the self clean mode in an oven. the oven gets so hot that things have a tendency to melt because they dont build stuff like they used to. there is inadequate insulation in modern ovens. use easy off and follow the label directions. it'll be cheaper in the long run, trust me.

Used self cleaning process on my oven yesterday and today the oven will not turn on, we keep getting message to unlock the oven door even though it is. What can we do?


The oven gets extremely hot during the self-cleaning mode... the door switch might have got stuck in locked position, or broken in locked position (to be replaced), let's hope it's just stuck...which you'll need to work the mechanical lock-unlock latching back and forth to hopefully unstick....and if that doesn't work just re-run self-cleaning process but this time let the oven cool completely before unlocking the door. Hope this helps.

We have a 24" wall


The problem is due to the door latch and specially one of the two micro switches is not contact properly that is why when you cracked little the oven can work little better. So all you need is check the latch at the back and if nessesary replace the latch

The lock will not release after cleaning


This is GE's trouble shooting advise:

Range - Oven Door Won't Unlock After Self Clean

The Oven Door has been Locked Accidentally:

  • If no food or utensils are in oven, put it into a short self-clean cycle (1-2 hours).


  • If there is food in the oven, let the oven cool to room temperature and try to unlatch the door.


  • With electronic ranges there is a small chance that turning the circuit breaker off for a few minutes and turning it back on can release the door. latch to the "off"


  • Note: Do not force the latch at anytime!

Door Will Not Unlock After Cleaning:

On models with mechanical latches:
  • Once the oven is cool after a self-clean cycle (approximately 30-90 minutes), slide the latch over to the left.(Some older models have a latch release button that must be pushed in while sliding the latch over.)
Note: Some models with oven Set and Temperature knobs must have those knobs set in the Clean position before the latch can be moved to the left. If your door won't unlock, try turning those knobs back to Clean, then slide the latch over.

If the above suggestions do not work try the following to unlock your door:
  1. Disconnect power to range for 30 seconds.
  2. Reconnect power and see if door will unlatch.
  3. If door does not unlatch, and you do have food in the oven, wait for oven to cool completely and try again. If it still will not open you will need service.
  4. If door does not unlatch, and you do not have food in the oven, set the oven up to clean for 1-2 hours.
  5. Wait approximately 30 minutes and try to unlock the door.
  6. If the door unlocks, the control has reset itself and there should not be any other problems.
  7. If the door will not unlock or if you would like to schedule a service appointment, please contact GE Consumer Service at 1-800-432-2737 or schedule a service appointment on-line.
Note: Under no circumstances should you ever force the door or latch open.

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.

Door locked


resetting thebreaker sometimes will work. if not try setting to clean. after engages the door to clean simply cancel the cycle the door lock/latch will cycleback . perhaps it just glitched shut.

Kenmore oven locked after celf cleaning


I had the same problem today. After I cleaned my self cleaning oven the cycle went back to normal but the oven door would not open even though the screen was clear and didn't read locked. I held the stop button for 3 second, I don't remember what the message said on the screen but I held the stop button in again for 3 seconds and the screen said locked then I did it again and the screen said door and the oven opened. I don't know, maybe it was just sheer luck it's worth a try. I'm happy.
