This is an occasional problem for many brands. 1st, it depends whether you have a lever in front that locks the oven door or the door is locked electronically. If you have the lever, it is common for the lever to get bent too much to the right or left so that it does not (after while) come back to the full open position, yet it looks like it is fully in the open position. You will have to bend the outer part of the handle in order for it to travel the extra distance to fully release. Or you will need to lift the top (be careful if it is sealed burners;some sealed burners need to be removed before the top can be lifted or you will damage the burner tubes or the ignitor wires). You will then see a plate to the front of the range where the lock mechanism is located. Under this plate you will find the lock engsging pin or finger and posibly an electric selenoid coil ( basically a magnet coil that energizes the lock pin/finger). You must release this from the latch arm or latch hole on the oven door. This will get the door released and now you need to determine if the selenoid or the mechanism was at fault. There also may be a small switch that is turned on/off that is attached to the mechanism and this is the safety fail switch that sends the signal to the oven control to operate or not operate in clean mode. This switch could be stuck or internally fused in the on position. Hope you have the tenacity and skill to determine all this. Good Luck, Macgivor

I need direction on how to start the clean cycle on my jenn air


CLEAN PAD
Use to set a self-clean cycle or a delayed
self-clean cycle. One press of the Clean
pad sets up an immediate clean cycle. A
second press of the Clean pad sets up a
delayed clean cycle.
• Clean oven
frame, door
frame (area
outside of gasket)
and
around the
opening in the door gasket with a nonabrasive
cleaner such as Bon Ami*. These
areas are not exposed to cleaning temperatures.
• Remove air grille.
• Remove oven racks. If racks are left in
during a clean cycle, it may impair function
and they will discolor. Turn off the
oven light and close door.
* Brand names for cleaning products are
registered trademarks of the respective
manufacturers.
TO SET FOR IMMEDIATE START:
1. Press Clean pad once.
2. Press the Auto Set pad for 3 hours of
cleaning time, press again for 4 hours
and again if 2 hours of clean time are
desired.
3. CLEANING and LOC plus the clean
time will appear in the display.
4. When the clean cycle is complete,
CLEANED will be displayed. LOC will
remain on until the oven has cooled
(approx. 1 hour).
5. When the oven is cool, LOC will no
longer be displayed and the door may be
opened.
6. Wipe out the oven interior with a damp
cloth. If soil remains it indicates the
cycle was not long enough.

TO CANCEL SELF-CLEAN:
1. Press Cancel pad.
2. If LOC is NOT displayed, open oven
door. If LOC is displayed, allow oven to
cool.

Jenn-Air stove locked


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 should happen, return the temperature knob back to CLEAN, unlock the door, THEN turn the temperature knob off.

Oven door locked - jenn air


My Jenn-Air double oven locked after a clean cycle. My model (JJW8630) has a series of slots cut in the top of the door. Take a piece of stiff wire, coat hanger, and bend a right angle about 1/2 inch at the end, feed the wire into the 3rd or 4th slot from the center on the right hand side. Turn the wire so that the bent piece is on the top and push the wire so it engages the lever which latches the door shut, it is spring loaded and moves easily.

Once the door was opened, I removed the temperature sensor, held by 2 screws, from the top of the oven and eased the wire out to get to the connector. The faulty sensor was reading 4.2 k, at room temperature it should be just over 1k, while waiting for a new sensor to arrive I stuck in a 1k resistor, ex Radio Shack, so the fan stops running and the door latch can be retracted by closing the oven door, or press the switch on the top right of the door opening.

My replacement part was ordered on line for less than 1/2 the official quoted price.

Hope this helps.
