Oven door is locked with food in it how to unlock asap


Hi , Anon !
My name is Ashlynn .
If your oven is locked , here's some ways you can unlock it :
  • 1 Look for a manual lever to unlock the oven. If there is one, it will probably swing back and forth horizontally, just below the upper edge of the oven door.
  • 2 Swing the locking lever, if one is present, all the way to the left. This should unlock the oven. If there is no manual lever to unlock the oven, it may be unlocked using push-button controls.
  • 3 Check to see if the oven is in a self-cleaning cycle, or has just completed a self-cleaning cycle. If so, the door will unlock automatically once the oven has finished the cleaning cycle and cooled completely, which may take several hours. You cannot unlock the oven before it has cooled.
  • 4 Unlock the "Clean/Off" button. Depending on the brand and model of your oven, the button may display both of these designations or just one. If your oven door is locked, but the oven is not warm and is not in a cleaning cycle, unlock it by pressing and holding the "Clean/Off" button.

    But it seems you have food inside so ,
    Press cancel on the cooking cycle , and let it cool to room temperature , and then try to open your oven .

    Admiral electric range with self cleaning oven


    Hey there gcato1, your problem is actually a protective feature designed to prevent you from getting burned. The self cleaning feature runs at extremely hot temps. Until the temperature reaches a safe level, the oven door will remain latched. Be patient and the problem will solve itself.

    Cannot unlock oven door


  • Here it is!

  • Swing the locking lever, if one is present, all the way to the left. This should unlock the oven. If there is no manual lever to unlock the oven, it may be unlocked using push-button controls.

  • Check to see if the oven is in a self-cleaning cycle, or has just completed a self-cleaning cycle. If so, the door will unlock automatically once the oven has finished the cleaning cycle and cooled completely, which may take several hours. You cannot unlock the oven before it has cooled.

    Can't Unlock oven doors after "self-Clean" maytag double oven


    I was advised to disconnect power for at least 60 seconds to clear the control board. I did this several times with no luck getting the door unlocked. However, a few hours later, the door did finally unlock. Not sure what ultimately caused the door to unlock, but happy that I did not have to replace the control board.

    How does self clean work


    MOST SELF-CLEAN OVENS RAISE THE TEMPERATURE IN THE OVEN TO ABOUT 850 DEGREES AND BURN EVERYTHING TO A POWDER. THAT IS WHY THERE IS A SPECIAL DOOR GASKET AND IMPROVED INSULATION AROUND THE OVEN LINER. THE AVERAGE CLEAN CYCLE
    TAKES 3 HOURS TO COMPLETE. YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO
    LOCK THE OVEN DOOR (SOME MODELS LOCK THE DOOR
    AUTOMATICALLY) SELECT SELF-CLEAN, AND START.
    OLDER MODELS WITH A MECHANICAL TIMER AND CLOCK REQUIRE SETTING THE START AND STOP TIME.
