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.
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. or 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. If these procedures fail to correct the condition, the lock must usually be accessed and moved manually to open the door. Some model ovens require the oven door to be manually unlatched before the controls are returned to the OFF position or else the door may not be able to be unlocked. Check the owner's manual for proper operating procedures
Oven doors are made to lift off for routine maintenance but there might be problems if the spring load hinges are not disabled before pulling the door off the body.
There should be a catch which holds the hinge in the open position but if it is the release position (i.e. the state in which it is in for normal use), the I would expect the hinges to snap into the closed position when the door is removed from the body.
To rectify this, hold each spring loaded arm in the position it would be in the "door open" position and move the catch into the position which prevents the arm springing back when they are released.
It should now be possible to fit the door to the cooker.
If you can not open this door, then the problem probably is that you stopped the clean cycle before it was finished. Restart the cycle, and set it at the minimum of 3 hours, and then when it is finished, it will release the latch that locks the door. I had this problem last night, and after the cycle was finished, the door latch was released. Hope this helps.
After self cleaning the range the door won't open.... The oven door lock needs approximately 1 hour to cool down before the oven door can be opened after a self cleaning cycle has finished. If the lock does not open after the oven has cooled down, you can try....1) Unplugging the range or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Plug the range back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and try moving the door lock lever 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 or opening the door.
open the door on the hook that's still engaged look in the slot you will see a hinge lock using a small screw driver flip it back to lock the hinge then let the door up til the door engages the hinge lock grasp the door on either side and lift up and back to take the door off then pull the other hinge out till you can lock it then grasp both sides put the hinge hooks on the pins in the slot open the door all the way and fold the locks back in the body of the range and close the door
i posted the solution under premiumproblems i don't know how that works but what you have to do is get a couple of nails pull the hinge on the door down far enough to insert the nails in the holes and let it rest against the door this will hold the door at the proper angle to engage the hooks inside the hinge slots on the body of the range grasp the door on each side and insert the hinges in each side to engage the hooks then open the door all the way and remove the nails
On the door by the hinges there are levers that keep the door on the range. You must pull the hinges down away from the door far enough to move these levers towards the door so that when you let go of the hinges the levers will catch on the frame of the door. This will take a considerable amount of force. I suggest using pliers to do this.
Then grab the door firmly and insert the hinge hooks as far into the slots as possible. then open the door completely . Then move each lever up and against the body of the range. Close the door and all shouild be ok.
