Question about Jenn-Air JJW8130D Electric Single Oven
HI. You will need to check the wiring that links the door latch assembly to the actual control board. The main board controls the actions of the door latch mechanism during cleaning sessions and long bake periods on certain models. If this malfunction occurred after a self cleaning session, the temp sensor may have failed, causing the oven temp to reach far beyond the rated threshold, in return, welding the relay contacts together. This will suspend the door latch mech and prevent the control from initiating the UN-lock signal.
If you are sure that this didn't occur after a self cleaning session, i would suggest to unplug the unit for 5 minutes. after the five minutes are up, simply plug the unit in the appropriate socket once more, and power up. If you experience the same issue as before, this will confirm that the door lock latch mechanism has failed. it should be replaced in this case.
NOTE(If an over temp situation has occurred during a cleaning session, and the door would not unlock after the session, this will require you to replace the control board, lock mech and wiring harness contacts as well).

Thanks for using FixYa. The lock indicator light must be in off position. This can take more than one hour. After the lock indicator light goes out, move the door lock lever to the left. The oven door can now be opened. Turn the selector and temperature knobs from clean to off after the door is unlocked. If the temperature knob is turned to off before the door is unlocked, the door will not open. Forcing the lock will damage the lock mechanism. If this is the case, then return the temperature knob back to clean, unlock the door and turn the temperature knob in off position. If still you are not able to open the lock then it means that the lock motor might have failed. Use an insulated wire bending into the hook and slide from the right side and move the door to the right. It can also allow you to release the lock and open the door.
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.
