    You can turn it off at the breaker panel. You should also be able to 'cancel' self clean function on the oven itself.

I just bought a used Whirlpool 465 electric stove. I tried using the self-cleaning feature which didn't work and now I can't get the oven open.

Thanks for any help.

Gas range oven door with not open


Your self cleaning cycle is running. When self cleaning is running the door is automatically locked and will not unlock until the self cleaning cycle completes or self cleaning is turned off. You should be able to just turn off the self cleaning cycle and the door will unlock. Do not try to pry open the oven door. You will just damage the door and/or the catch.

I started a self clean on my oven, and then shut it off, the door opened, now it will not close, seem like the latch is in the lock posistion. help


For an oven self cleaning problem, the first thing to check is the door lock motor and switch assembly. Every self cleaning oven door has a locking mechanism to prevent the door from being opened during the cleaning cycle. An oven self cleaning problem often happens after a clean cycle has been run. If that happens, more often then not the lock assembly will need to be replaced. The door lock motor and switch assembly, over time, fail due to the high temperatures that are encountered during the cleaning cycle.
Here is the part to order.

All parts come with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

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.

How do use self clean service?


CAUTION: SHOULD AN OVEN FIRE OCCUR,
CLOSE THE OVEN DOOR AND TURN OFF THE
OVEN. IF THE FIRE CONTINUES, USE A FIRE
EXTINGUISHER. DO NOT PUT WATER OR FLOUR
ON THE FIRE. FLOUR MAY BE EXPLOSIVE.
To set the controls for a self-clean cycle:
For satisfactory results use a 2 hour self-clean cycle for
light soils and a 3 hour cycle for average to heavy
soils.
1. Be sure the clock shows the correct time of day.
2. Press Clean. "— — —" appears in the display.
3. Press the Up Arrow until "3:00" appears in the
display for a 3 hour cycle, or press the Down Arrow
until "2:00" appears in the display for a 2 hour cycle.
4. As soon as the Up Arrow or Down Arrow is
released, "CLN" appears in the display.
5. As soon as the controls are set, the motor driven
lock will begin to close automatically and the "LOCK"
indicator light will flash. DO NOT open the door while
the light is flashing (it takes about 15 seconds for the
oven door to lock).
6. The "LOCK" light will glow until the cleaning cycle is
completed or cancelled, and the oven
temperature has cooled.
When the self-clean cycle is completed:
1. The time of day or “END” will appear in the display
window and the “Clean” and "LOCK" light will continue
to glow.
2. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 HOUR
and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can
be opened.
3. If “END” is in the display and the “Clean” indicator
remains on, press Clear/Off. The time of day will
appear in the display.
NOTE: When the oven is cool, wipe away any residue
or powdered ash with a damp cloth or paper towel.
Stopping or interrupting a self-cleaning cycle:
If it becomes necessary to stop or interrupt a selfcleaning
cycle.
1. Press Clear/Off.
2. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 HOUR
and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can
be opened.
3. Restart the self-clean cycle once all conditions have
been corrected.
How the ES 200 operates:
CAUTION: NEVER ATTEMPT TO REMOVE EITHER
THE BAKE OR BROIL ELEMENT WITHOUT DISCONNECTING
ELECTRICAL POWER FROM THE
RANGE. ELECTRICAL POWER IS CONNECTED
TO THE ELEMENTS WHENEVER ELECTRICAL
POWER IS CONNECTED TO THE RANGE.
The ES 200 electronic oven control system is made up
of three parts that control the bake and broil elements,
and the locking of the door in the self-clean cycle.
1. Electronic oven control.
2. Oven temperature sensor.
3. Oven door lock mechanism.

I want to stop the self cleaning function


To Stop or Interrupt a Self-Cleaning Cycle

Self cleaning oven


If the door is sealed properly, there will not be enough oxygen to have combustion. If a fire develops, there may be a problem with the door seal. The self clean mode will raise the temperature to around 1000 degrees, causing the soil to turn into an ash.

Self cleaning oven directions


Press the self-clean button.  The panel becomes blank(---), then press the up arrow( ^ ).  The panel will appear 3:00 (indication for the duration of self-cleaning). The oven will lock on its own and start the self-cleaning.  Good luck, ya'll!
