SOURCE: locked ovens

We had this same problem in September, 2007. Ours was the result of a burned out motor on the latch assembly. I didn't want to shell out $450 for service calls (without the cost of parts), so found the following information and parts and did the repairs ourselves - for about $120 and a couple of hours work. For the record: we have no connections to, except to order parts.

You can get the range service manual at:

The part you'll probably need is:

The manual says to virtually disassemble the oven to get the part out, but my husband got around that by wrapping one end of a 3 foot piece of flexible wire tightly around the locking mechanism. He removed the back range cover, unscrewed the latch assembly and carefully drew it out without disarranging the insulation inside the range. Then he wrapped the wire around the new latch assembly and gently pulled it through to the front. Secure all parts again.
Our range has worked great since we did this fix, although he said it would've been cheaper to just replace the little motor on the latch assembly. It would be simple for someone with a moderate skill level to just pull the latch assembly out a little bit and wire a new motor on. Good luck!

SOURCE: Maytag Oven Door is locked

I had the same problem.  Unplugging the oven didn't solve it, as the same "F9" message appeared when restarted.  
Here's what worked:  start a cleaning cycle, and then hit cancel.  I leaned on the door just a little, the latch stopped making the "clicking" noise, and then the lock light turned off and the door opened.

SOURCE: After using the self-clean cycle, display panel went black and oven door stayed locked.

Happens alot dont feel bad , self clean mode runs the elements at 500 deg. to cook off everything possible , what happens is the cabinet gets to hot and heats saftey temp. fuses until they go out and they are not resetable. they are always located in different areas of ranges but usaully in the back. you can ohm them out to check them if you have a meter.let me know if you have any other questions.

SOURCE: Ran Self Cleaning - Display went blank & Oven Door stayed locked

Solution #3 was very helpful. Took off the back panel and found the small black fuse. Removed the fuse and joined the two black wires, oven now turns on and oven door opens. Don't think it would be to safe to leave like this but going to get the part and put the fuse back in myself. Very easy to fix (just a million screws) so save yourself the expensive service charge!!!!

Self cleaning

There is a SAFETY INTERLOCK, if you opened it then locked... Is that what you said? It can not clean if the door is not locked.

If you unplug the stove and this will give it a reset. but you may have done some mechanical damage that you will have to inspect to see what it is doing. Is the Locking handle working properly? Is anything jammed ? Ect... Look at the Mechanical components first...

No power, door locked

there are 2 thermal switches within the component area in front of the fan of the oven, they open and close like a switch at certain temps,if one of these go bad (stays open after oven clean cycle)and oven cools then it wont let power back to the unlock motor,you can access these switches and bypass them to test them,if lock works then merely replace that particular switch

F90 Maximum oven door unlock time exceeded.
F91 Maximum oven door unlock attempts exceeded.
F92 Maximum oven door open time exceeded.
F93 Maximum oven door lock time exceeded.
F94 Maximum oven door lock attempts exceeded.

1. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Check the wiring between EOC & Lock Motor Micro Switch.

2. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Replace the Motor Door Latch assembly if necessary.

3. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Check for binding of the Latch Cam, Lock Motor Rod & Lock Motor Cam.

4. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Check to see if Lock Motor Coil is open. If open, replace Lock Motor Assembly.

5. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Lock Motor continuously runs - if Micro Switch is open, replace Lock Motor Assembly.

6. (F92, 93 & 94) Check oven door Light Switch - if open, replace Switch.

7. If all situations above do not solve problem, replace EOC.

F90 is a door lock code, Try this...
unplug the range.
wait 1 minute.
turn the range back on,
then while holding in on the oven door.
start another self clean.
wait 2 minutes.
then cancel the self clean.

Locked oven door

OK, when you go to use the "Self Clean" function, what happens is special door "Interlocks" engage to absolutely ensure they door can in NO WAY come open during and for some considerable time later. You see the "Clean" is heating up to so,e absurd temperature, about 700 -900 Degrees! This basically BURNS everything up. So when this happens, the Doors stay looked, if you hit cancel and it DID NOT do anything, then try removing from Power, totally for a while and reconnect. If it did do the clean, then often this procedure burns out the thermistor inside, and then the doors stay closed too. You will have to check, which one. Also it may have "Glitched" the controller. Hopefully removing from power will work.

By the way the door lock error will stay there until the oven cools. Once it has cooled it will go away. the reason is in a self clean the oven is supposed to get very hot to clean. The door lock is for your protection. once it has cooled down enough the door lock will go away.

Locked latch on the self cleaning oven

try wiggling the door latch to get it open if not try the cleaning process, if that works, and see if the door comes unlatched and the light goes off. if not the lock light switch is stuck and it will need to be taken apart and cleaned
