Question about Viking Kitchen Ranges

The door to the larger side of the oven is locked even though it is not self cleaning. I have run a self clean cycle, hoping that it would unlock at the end with no luck.

    Thank you. What lever and when you refer to a clear button, what do you mean? Sorry! I have no idea what I'm doing

  • grimslely Sep 12, 2009

    Thank you so much. I'm not aware of timers on it. Where would they be? I also tried to unplug it from a previous suggestion and did manage to pull the unit from the cabinets (and it might be staying pulled out, cause i can't get it back in:) ) but the connection is not by a plug or anything that I could get to. I'm sorry that I am such an idiot!

Please keep in mind that I am attempting to diagnose your appliance without being there and with very little information.
Turn your timers on and then off. Make sure they are off. If the lock does not unlock when you do this, find your fuse box and flip the breaker to the unit off for five min's. Then flip the power back on. This should reset the locks, if it does not, I would think that you have a bad lock mechanism.
Please rate solution.

Try unplugging the range for one minute and work the lever all the way to one direction firmly then work to the other direction, plug it back in and repeat,also make sure you have pressed clear on the display a number of times, repeat this procedure and also the self cleaning cycle to release door.

Gas range oven door with not open


Your self cleaning cycle is running. When self cleaning is running the door is automatically locked and will not unlock until the self cleaning cycle completes or self cleaning is turned off. You should be able to just turn off the self cleaning cycle and the door will unlock. Do not try to pry open the oven door. You will just damage the door and/or the catch.

Used self cleaning process on my oven yesterday and today the oven will not turn on, we keep getting message to unlock the oven door even though it is. What can we do?


The oven gets extremely hot during the self-cleaning mode... the door switch might have got stuck in locked position, or broken in locked position (to be replaced), let's hope it's just stuck...which you'll need to work the mechanical lock-unlock latching back and forth to hopefully unstick....and if that doesn't work just re-run self-cleaning process but this time let the oven cool completely before unlocking the door. Hope this helps.

Oven door is locked


the oven door should only unlock the door when it deems the temperature a safe temperature.. there are 2 other possible reasons.. the door lock motor could be bad.. or the control is bad.. you would need an electric volt meter to test to see which it is.. if you need further assistance please ask b4 rating

Self-cleaning gas oven


Door lock motor has probably failed.....Self clean on many
ovens can be a self destruct mode. Door latch motors, sensor
probes and even the electronic controls can be destroyed by
this operation. On many freestanding stoves the lock motor is located in the right rear (looking from the front) with a long rod connected to the lock. remove the motor and unhook the rod from the motor cam. Sometimes bending a coat hangar into a hook and sliding from the right side into the lock you can unlock the door.

Whirlpool RF367LXS Ceramic Glass Range not working


Almost every time I run the SELF CLEAN cycle on my Whirlpool Self Cleaning range, it fails to function after completing the self clean cycle, even though it completes the cycle of cleaning and unlocks the door. What I do to solve the problem, I power off the BREAKER for the range at the main electrical panel in the house and wait 30 seconds, then power on....and the whole system works just fine until the next time I clean it. This has been a problem from the beginning. My theory is that the electronics get heated up and, like a computer, the system stalls out and needs a complete hard reboot. Good luck!
