Yes you can, many a times just by unplugging and replugging back works. Else try the following.

  1. Step 1 Check to make sure that the Jenn-Air oven's digital display still shows "Lock" or "Off." If neither of these messages show, the oven is not locked and requires no further effort to unlock it.
  2. Step 2 Wait for the oven to cool completely, if it has been on the self-cleaning cycle, before attempting to unlock or open the oven door. It will automatically unlock once the oven has cooled, which may take several hours depending on the temperature of the cleaning cycle.
  3. Step 3 Press and hold the "Cancel" and "Cook & Hold" buttons on the oven or, if you have dual ovens installed, the upper oven. This will reverse a manual locking of the oven door.
  4. Step 4 Wait until the message "Lock" flashes on the digital display, then release the buttons. Your oven is now unlocked.

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

    More then likely your electronic clock control board is going bad. After turning the power off, you can also try cleaning the connectors on the clock board and make sure the connectors are tight.

    Jenn-Air stove locked


    After the lock indicator light goes out, move the door lock lever to the left. The oven door can now be opened. Turn the selector and temperature knobs from clean to off AFTER THE DOOR IS UNLOCKED. If the temperature knob is turned to off BEFORE the door is unlocked, the door will not open. Forcing the lock will damage the lock mechanism. If this should happen, return the temperature knob back to CLEAN, unlock the door, THEN turn the temperature knob off.

    No digital display oven works


    We own a Jenn-Aire model W27400W oven. The display module has gradually gone dim over a period of several months prior to the end of the warranty, and the display is no longer visible. It is apparent that several Jenn-Aire oven models use the same display. Does Anyone else have the same problem, and If so, are they willing to join a class-action suit against Jenn-Aire with us?

    Jenn Aire lock for self clean in locked position


    The LOCK INDICATOR light must be OFF. This can take up to one hour!!!

    Do NOT force the door.

    Leave the SELECTION and TEMPERATURE knob alone. The Temperature knob MUST be set to CLEAN

    Indicator Light OFF, knobs set to CLEAN - OPEN the slide lever.

    Lever open, set the knobs to OFF and away you go
