    Hi Guru
    Been there done that. Tried all the tricks.
    Clean cycle has never been used. Just a few day ago we noticed the door would not open.
    However, when we try to use the clean cycle now. It come on Bake.
    It never says clean or jumps to 3:;00 hours as the book says it should.
    We're hoping you know of a manual override to unlock the door.
    It will open about one inch and the lights go on in the oven.
    The lock seems to be in the middle of the door.
    Lets see if we can get the clean cycle program to work. Then we can worry about the door. Or maybe it will fix itself when thats fixed.
    All the best

    Our problem has not been solved.  For some reason we mistakenly said it was solved.  It was not. We still can't use the clean function.  It does not work.  Why is it so difficult for us to get a answer.  Also the oven door will not open.  We had already tried  all the fixes that the expert gave us to no avail. 




    Is it asking too much to have one of your experts to call us.  Here is our toll free number.

    Waiting for your call.

Hi 1926,

I think you will have to go to your Circuit Breaker panel and turn the power supply to the oven off then back on after waiting for about 15 seconds. Try opening the oven door when the power is turned off. If this does not fix your problem ,please post another comment in this thread. I will respond. good luck.

    Also, The manual for your Oven states the door will not open if the interior temperature is above a set limit. Allow 1 hour for the oven to cool and then the door should open. Even though the Clean cycle has finished the interlock will hold the door closed unitl the temperature falls to a safe level.

Scholtes FE46 and the door is locked. Also no clock/timer lights. Temp/function and oven work but is locked even though completely cold.


Here are a couple of things to try:
  1. Unplug the unit or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Plug the unit back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and gently try moving the door lock lever (is so equipped) or opening the door.
  2. Set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for 15 minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever (is so equipped) or opening the door.

The door switch has gone bad. This will keep the oven light on and the self clean won't work because it thinks the door is open.

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.

Can't open door for self clean oven


The door won’t open until oven has cooled as a safety feature. Self clean is high temperatures.
