    I put Whirlpool super capacity 465 into self clean mode. I then opened it to check to make sure nothing was in it, then lock hook/tongue came out. It won't go back in, tried to restart, tried to cancel, tried via the expert to un-plug unit it isn't working.

    Do you have a better solution?

Hi

Here is the repair manual for your exact model

http://adcxns1.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/ca8e028c60d9804f85256a8c00621f04/$FILE/4322089.pdf

See page 18 for diagrams on your lock which is activated by an electric solenoid.

Here is the solution to get the lock to open:

Pull the unit out - on the upper right side top of the back (when facing the oven door), there is a small plastic wheel attached to a bracket with a 0.125" OD lever attached. When the wheel rotates via the electronic solenoid, the lever goes front to back. This is connected to the door latch in such a way that when you move the latch lever toward you (the front of the oven), the latch moves to the left, unlocking the door! Either spin the wheel by hand to move the lever forward, or remove one screw to loosen the housing, then remove the lever from the wheel and push forward toward the door.

Hope this resolves the issue for you. If so please remember to accept and rate my answer as this is exremely important to me as an expert on the site. Many Thanks.

Check the wiring on the door lock. If that looks good you need to replace the door lock but that part is no longer available.

How do I unlock the oven door?


If the lock is engaged, is the oven in a self cleaning cycle? If so, cycle power to the oven, that should cancel the self cleaning cycle.

Reply back if that worked or not and I'll try to help you further.

I did not follow directions on self-cleaning and now stove is loc


Since the door is open and the lock is engaged, you will need to hold the "door closed" switch in located in the top left door opening. Push and hold the switch in, push the clean button, set the time at 3:00 hours, keep holding the switch in for 20 seconds, then push cancel button. The motorized locking mechanism should disengage. Then, you can release the switch. Hope this helps.

Jenn Air oven door won't open after clean cycle


Had this EXACT same problem the day before a party where I needed the oven for lots of baking.... Tried all sorts of things, was about to call a repair man- I FINALLY got it to open by following the first two directions for putting it into self clean mode (turned both knobs to CLEAN), then when it said to lock door I tried to move the lock lever and bam it worked! Give it a shot! Good luck! (:

Oven door that wont come unlocked


sounds like you have a latch/lock issue. the unit seems to think the door is still currently locked, preventing proper operation, i would try to see if you can locate the door/light switch and manually trip it with your hand(turning off light). then while keeping depressed activate the self clean mode again, the machine will try to engage the lock/latch, as soon as it does then cancel it and it will return back to a normal resting location. you must keep the light switched pushed in order for this to work correctly

Oven clean 'dr', F9, door lock flashing


The F9 code indicates there is a problem with the door lock.

Try disconnecting the power to the range for 10 seconds and reconnecting. Open the oven door and hold the door switch plunger in while you try these things. Put the control into clean for 5 minutes then cancel clean. You must hold the door switch plunger in for the 5 minutes.

Try canceling the clean cycle without putting the control into clean.
