How do I get the door open on my oven?

I turned it on to clean last night and when I came out this morning it was still going. I can't get the door open and the green light is still on.

Most newer ovens have a lock on them, and you probably haven't noticed it. look for a lock button. It will probably be electronic, not a mechanical button. Not sure what brand you have or how old it is.

Testimonial: "Thanks so much for get back to me. I got a hammer and a screwdriver, as recommended by someone on here, and it worked. The oven is in use again. Still don't know why the oven took all night to clean. I'll ring the Smeg people on Monday. Thanks again for getting back to me."

H E L P !!! My oven made some noises this morning when my husband was wiping down the front of the oven door. Noise sounded like the "oven was going into clean mode"....but then only lasted...


Hello.

Please apply the solution this way!

To close an oven door when it's in the locked position and the door is open, press and hold the oven door light switch while following these simple steps:
  • Program the oven to self-clean.
  • Wait 20 seconds.
  • Cancel self-clean.
  • Wait 20 seconds.
To self-clean your wall oven, follow these simple steps:
  • Remove the oven racks.
  • Set your oven control to "Clean."
  • Select a cleaning time or choose a cleaning level: light, medium or heavy. For typical cleaning needs, we recommend that you select a cleaning time of three hours or choose the medium setting.
  • Select "Start." (To set a delayed start, see your Use & Care Guide.)

Note: For safety reasons, the oven door will remain locked until the oven cools down. When it is sufficiently cool, the door will automatically unlock.

Thanks for using fixya.

How do i reset the locked oven door to unlock it?


I have had that problem once.I turned off the breaker to that oven over night and then in the morning the door opened as it should.I found a GE page that is below.It may help.


http://www.geappliances.com/search/fast/infobase/10000161.htm
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.

The oven works fine as in it heats up but when turned off the cooling fan keeps going...used it last night and this morning the fan is still on...turned oven on and it is heating up but as I said the fan...


most ovens use a cut in limpet themostat(sometimes called button stat) typically normally open and closed at 40deg c. it will be this that will be not resetting to the open position at room temp. on rarer models the timer controls the cooling fan. some models of aeg and electrolux have a thermal delaying device located in abulb in the wiring loom. hope this helps

My oven display is beeping and blinking 'PBR' on the display. What does that mean?


I had this same problem last night.. I have been having problems with the oven shutting off on preheat.. That sort of stopped. Last night lost power to the house. When it returned the oven was beeping and flashing PBR. I turned off the breaker for a few mins. last night and it returned. It was bugging me so much that turned it off the whole night. Woke up this morning turned the breaker back on and it stopped. I don't think this is the total solution. I am thinking that eventually I am going to have to replace power board in this oven. Hope it works!

Need help unlock oven after self cleaning jenn air jjw9527


The temperature setting must be set on "Cleaning" and the oven cooking dial to "Clean"; otherwise the door will not open and forcing will damage the mechanism. Also, before the door will open, the internal temperature must drop to a safe level and a red "cleaning" light must go off, after the temperature drops inside the oven.
