SOURCE: Oven wont turn on.

I tried several times to get my oven to work and nothing seemed to help. After downloading the manual from this site, my husband locked and unlocked the oven door several times very hard and it knocked something in place and now my oven works. I hope it works for you.

I have a ge spectra self cleaning oven the door does not lock when cleaning process begins it flashes locked and starts beeping but hook does not move into the lock position. I tried to unplug oven ho

If your GE Oven will not lock during the self clean cycle count yourself lucky. If it will go through the cycle then let it self clean and just make sure no one opens the door while it is hot. Most ovens fail locked and there are several possible faults - one of the two switches may have failed, the oven temperature sensor may have failed, the motor that drives the lock may have failed (most likely your issue), the plastic gear may have stripped. There is not a manual lock or unlock over ride and to unlock the oven manually you have to take the stove apart which is difficult when it is locked.

My Electrolux double oven has locked down with food in the oven. How can we get the door to release

My oven does that when the self-clean button has been pressed. Try pushing any sort of power-off buttons or pushing any buttons that are lit up in attempt to turn them off. Older ovens have a lever you have to slide to lock and unlock the oven door.

I have a ge profile oven that is blinking and beeping all of a sudden. it is blinking FC on and off. We have a double wall oven.

This is an indication that there is a sensor issue with the door lock mechanism. There is a reset procedure you can try to see if the doorlock mechanism is working. It is usually used for a different code "Lock Dor" but it should let you know if the circuit is working or not. It also resets the devices and maybe will clear your error code.

Locked door on my GE Profile Oven (Range)

Amazing. I've searched across the web, and this "locked door" problem appears to be a DESIGN FLAW across the entire product line: if you run the self-cleaning cycle, it WILL trigger this problem and despite the suggestion of a wide range of "self-help" strategies, the only real solution is to pay for a service call (and then, it appears, paying for a new control unit and probably an additional service call to have it installed, and then more service calls if the same problem occurs). We have a JGB900BEF2BB GE Profile range, and of course we've run through all the self-help suggestions at and on a dozen other web sites like this one.

Amana Oven Door won't open. Latch to lock it is broken.

After pressing Self Clean, Adjusting the Time and Pressing Start, the self cleaning cycle shows the # F57_ on the read-out. I tried to cancel and now the door opens, but I can't get the Bake to begin when I press Start. No matter what I press LOC flashes on and off, but the door is unlocked and the heat is off.
Please help!

After canceling self cleaning on my GE Hotpoint oven, I was able to unlock the door and open the oven door. When I try to use the broil or bake feature it keeps saying "un lock dor" The door is not lock...


You will need to allow oven to cool, the temperature is one thousand degrees plus while the oven is cleaning. Until the oven cools it will not open, this is a safety caution. If it will not open after it is totally cooled, it may be stuck, try pushing on the door or pulling it out a bit while trying to move the lever.

Always consult the owners manual when using the cleaning mode on your oven. Be sure it is fully cooled before cleaning any residue out of oven area.

Self clean light blinks when you turn oven on (oven does not work)

I had this same problem with mine (still posted under unsolved) This is the simpler model with the old turn style knob and the lever you slide over to lock the door for cleaning What I think (keep in mind I know little about ovens, more about cars) is that the switch that tells the oven the door is latched is staying engaged, and this is part of the lever mechanism. I cleaned and lubed this mechanism (obviously I would guess you want to use a food safe lubricant) and then moved the lever several times with the oven on so I could see if it turned on. After a few tries the cleaning light went off and the oven light came on. No, its not really a technical answer, all indications to me where that the problem was in the switch which is part of the latch mechanism. Good luck
