SOURCE: "Door Locked" flashing on GE Oven JTP15 - can't unlock

The problem may very well be in one of the micro switches on the self cleaning motor bracket. These switches control the electrical flow to the heating elements. In the owners manual there is/should be a chart that lists the unlock and safety combinations. This would be your best source of information.

Whirlpool 8053294 door locked


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

This is a common problem. In the upper back of your range you have a small motor which can fail and not rotate to unlock the door.

You need to pull your unit out to get behind it. Unplug your unit. Remove the top back cover and disconnect the motor. The rotate the oven door latch shaft to open the door.

Go into the following website. Input your model number (on the left) and you will get diagrams and part numbers for the repair.

Unlock frigidaire professional series


Good Morning Anonymous, thank you for your post!

Based on the symptoms you are describing, it appears that your Frigidaire range is possibly locked. Typically, the "Door Locked" light will glow until the Self-Clean cycle has completed or the oven temperature has cooled. However, if the issue continues, please confirm that the Oven Control Lockout feature was not accidently selected (on some models). If so, you can cancel this feature by pressing CLEAR/OFF and hold for approximately 10 seconds. The control will unlock the oven door and resume normal operations.

If the instructions above do not solve the problem, may I please have your model number? The serial tag, which lists your model number, is typically located in the storage drawer, on the right side. With this information I can determine if your range is possibly experiencing other issues. Thank you - Z.

How do i unlock after self cleaning my kenmore elite electric slide in 30"


Hello,Give it time for the oven to cool if it has just completed the clean cycle. The door is not to unlock if the oven is still too hot. If the oven is cool and the door will not unlock,program and start another clean cycle and after about two minutes press cancel/clear/stop and wait for another minutes to see if the door will unlock.If the door doesn't unlock i recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your range.
Thanks

The lock will not release after cleaning


This is GE's trouble shooting advise:

Range - Oven Door Won't Unlock After Self Clean

The Oven Door has been Locked Accidentally:

  • If no food or utensils are in oven, put it into a short self-clean cycle (1-2 hours).


  • If there is food in the oven, let the oven cool to room temperature and try to unlatch the door.


  • With electronic ranges there is a small chance that turning the circuit breaker off for a few minutes and turning it back on can release the door. latch to the "off"


  • Note: Do not force the latch at anytime!

Door Will Not Unlock After Cleaning:

On models with mechanical latches:
  • Once the oven is cool after a self-clean cycle (approximately 30-90 minutes), slide the latch over to the left.(Some older models have a latch release button that must be pushed in while sliding the latch over.)
Note: Some models with oven Set and Temperature knobs must have those knobs set in the Clean position before the latch can be moved to the left. If your door won't unlock, try turning those knobs back to Clean, then slide the latch over.

If the above suggestions do not work try the following to unlock your door:
  1. Disconnect power to range for 30 seconds.
  2. Reconnect power and see if door will unlatch.
  3. If door does not unlatch, and you do have food in the oven, wait for oven to cool completely and try again. If it still will not open you will need service.
  4. If door does not unlatch, and you do not have food in the oven, set the oven up to clean for 1-2 hours.
  5. Wait approximately 30 minutes and try to unlock the door.
  6. If the door unlocks, the control has reset itself and there should not be any other problems.
  7. If the door will not unlock or if you would like to schedule a service appointment, please contact GE Consumer Service at 1-800-432-2737 or schedule a service appointment on-line.
Note: Under no circumstances should you ever force the door or latch open.

How do you unlock the oven on a freestanding Accubake gas range/oven? Its a whirlpool gold.


Take a wire coathanger and cut the long wire from the middle.
Bend a small "U" shape on one end.
Slide the "U" in from the left side of the oven door near the top center.
Moving the wire back and forth slowwly to grasp the lock latch.
When you feel the latch pull the wire firmly to the left to open the door.
Then have the latch mechanism repaired.

Kenmore oven locked


Hello dktshopping,
I know you probable don't want to hear this but in you circumstance, I think you would be better off to contact a repair professional. Those oven door locks are meant to keep the door from opening during the oven's self-cleaning cycle. They are both mechanically and temperature controlled so that the door can not be opened when the oven is 950 degrees. It sounds to me as though something is not releasing to allowing the locking mechanisim to disengage from the door even though the lever is in the unlock position. The unit will probably have to be taken apaprt to remedy the problem. Good luck.

Our GE Profile JTP18 keeps flashing "door lock" since we ran a self clean


most of the time a simple fix.... http://www.geappliances.com/search/fast/infobase/10004586.htm
you have to trick the door lock mech into cycling through the cleaning process (takes about 20 seconds)
Print Range - “LOCKED DOOR” flashes in the display

If “LOCKED DOOR” is flashing in the display of your range or oven, and the self-clean cycle has not been selected, follow the steps below to reset your control:

Motorized Switch
    1. With the door open, locate the door jamb switch on the face of the oven. It will look like a small black post or dowel.
    2. Push it in until the oven cavity light goes off, indicating that the oven believes the door is closed.
    3. While you hold the door jamb switch in this position, complete the following steps.
    4. Press the Clean pad, wait 10 seconds.
    5. When the cycle initiates, press the clear/off or cancel pad immediately to cancel it.
    6. Wait 10 seconds for the display to clear.
    7. The door should unlock and there should not be a need for service.
Manual Switch
    1. Press the Clean pad.
    2. Close the door.
    3. Slide the latch to lock the door.
    4. Hit the cancel button immediately.
    5. Unlock the door.
If the above does not correct the situation, a service technician will need to check your cooking product. To obtain in or out of warranty repair on Major Appliances, you may call 1-800-GE-CARES (800-432-2737) or schedule service online.
