Has anybody had the problem of the oven door staying locked and won't open after cooking and has cooled down for several hours?


The oven door lock should only lock during self clean only. SHould never lock during normal oven functions. While in self clean because of high temps, the door lock will remain locked for safety reason until the temps drop to about 350 or so then release. Thats how the lock system works. If you select the normal bake mode and your door locks you may need to have the latch adjusted or the unit checked for problems. Good Luck

Oven door will not close properly

Generally speaking, if the oven door closes most of the way, but remains partially open, then it is necessary to replace the oven door hinges if it ios a drop down door.

I'd check to make sure you don't have a door switch that isn't functioning properly. Also, might be a control panel or control panel interface issue.

My electric Samsung oven will not hold a temperature setting, especially on the bake setting. The oven seems to preheat fine and then when you put the food in, obviously the temp will drop because you open...

After finding a cheap one on Craig's and reading the problems I decided to roll the dice and buy this range. It has the exact problem described above. The owner had replaced the control module and temp probe with no luck. I hooked up the range and sure enough it would come up to temperature (let's say 350) then dropped back to below 200 and never recovered. Lots of relay clicking but no heat. I unplugged it, took off the back and sure enough, one of the connections to the bottom burner was burnt and the wire was laying in the bottom of the range. I cut the bad part off of the wire, added a new high temp stainless terminal reconnected and viola', it works fine now. Wonderful range for practically nothing. It took about 20 minutes to repair and cost $2.00 for the new terminal. Piece of cake. Take a look inside before you call someone. These terminals Samsung used are cheap, not crimped properly etc.... hope this helps! I'll change them all out tomorrow.

Unable to unlock after cleaning - unable to open oven door

You must allow for the temp to cool down in the oven first. As the temp rises on the oven to a dangerously high level of 900f if anyone were to open that door they would be severely burned.
A thermostatically operated locking mech is installed to lock the door. The only way to get the door open is to wait till the oven cools down. If the mechanism is stuck locked you must remove the oven from the wall and disconnect a rod in the rear to get the oven open.

I have a flashing locked door light and cannot open the oven.

The oven is locked because the temperature inside the oven has not dropped below the locking temperature. Press Clear/Off button and allow the oven to cool. Oven door should open once it has been cooled below the locking temp.

Hey- Some models have a temp adj mode. Usually accessed by holding temp up until reaches 500deg. and holding until "0" appears. If this works properly, temp can then be adjusted up or down. If this function operates properly, temp. sensor is next suspect. Probe tests good at about 1000ohms. See if this helps- have more info if needed- Thanks. -ED

How can i quit cleaning oven?

During the self clean cycle, oven temp will exceed 900 degrees F. At these temps, if you opened the door, the food inside would immediately catch on fire when the supply of oxygen hit it. When you turn your self clean cycle off, the oven door will remain locked until the internal temp drop below aprox. 550 degrees F for your safety. Once the oven cool below this temp, you will be able to start using the bake or broil again. This should be a Fix-Ya for your oven.
