Jenn-air gas electric grill range

After setting this range to the self-cleaning cycle, and running through it, we cannot get the oven door to open; it remains locked. This happened to us on Thanksgiving afternoon. Talk about frustration!

So how do we get our door to open?

Re: Jenn-air gas electric grill range

This is not a problem. The cleaning cycle goes on for approximately 4 hours as I recall. it will unlock by itself when done. Read your user guide for troubleshooting tips. if you can't locate your copy, one is available on line at the Jenn-Air site

Self cleaning ovens

Perhaps it hasn't cooled down enough; or you may have to run the self-cleaning cycle again. The oven has to reach a certain temperature before it starts to turn the residue to ash.You may have interrupted its cycle.

It then has to cool off sufficiently to safely open the door.

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 will not unlock.

You will not be able to open the door if you turn off temp gage. Return the temp gage only to clean and door should open.
