We see a common problem caused by a control board failure where the oven shuts off after about 30 seconds, as if you had pressed CANCEL. We repair oven control boards at www.fixyourboard.com.

Scholtes FE46 and the door is locked. Also no clock/timer lights. Temp/function and oven work but is locked even though completely cold.


Here are a couple of things to try:
  1. 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.
  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 (is so equipped) or opening the door.

Oven door will not open after self clean


There are two easy things to try to fix this.

First, unplug the oven, or turn off the circuit breaker to it - so long as power is cut to the oven. Leave it for about 5 minutes, then plug it back in or turn the circuit breaker back on and try to open the door.

If that doesn't work, turn on the self-cleaning cycle again, and let it run for about 15 minutes. Then turn it off and wait another 15 minutes, and see if the door will open.

If neither of those work, you have a more serious problem with the locking mechanism. Either a bad solenoid or a damaged heat locking mechanism. Both of these will require removing the stove top to access and repair. Let me know if the above suggestions fix the problem. If they don't, I will get you more specifics on repairing the locking mechanism - assuming you're up for that.

I used the self-clean for the first time and my oven door is still locked and the display doesn't work at all. Model #YKESS908. What can I do to unlock the oven door? I have checked the circuit...


Hi

You can set the unit on self cleaning and then after 15 minutes stop the cycle, let it cool down for an hour and then open the door. If the issue remains then you'll have to replace the door lock assembly, then you can open the door with a coat hanger by pulling the latch towards you. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Hi
First press the CANCEL/Delay button for 20 seconds...If this won't work then you can start the self cleaning cycle again and then stop it after 15 minutes, then let the oven cool for sometime and check if the door opens again, if the not then you have to take a screw driver and open the latch. After this the latch mechanism should be replaced as it is bad. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Oven door is locked shut. Latch for self cleaning won't fully open. Thanks


FIRST TRY TO TURN THE BREAKER OFF FOR ABOUT 20 MINUTES, IF THAT DOESNT WORK YOU WILL NEED TO PULL IT OUT AND REMOVE THE BACK PANEL ( UNPLUG IT BEFORE YOU WORK ON IT) THEN LOCATE THE DOOR LOCK MOTOR AND ROD, SOMETIMES THE ROD NEEDS ADJUSTING, SOMETIME THE MICRO SWITCH ON THE MOTOR GOES OUT,, YOU CAN GET IT ULOCKED AND STILL USE IT, BUT YOU WONT BE ABLE TO USE THE SELF CLEANE,, YOU WILL HAVE TO FIND OUT IF IT IS THE MICRO SWITCH OR THE MOTOR AND RELACE THE PART BEFORE YOU CAN USE THE SELF CLEAN

I started the self-cleaning process on my GE electric oven last night. The process is complete but the oven door will not unlock. It sounds like it keeps running and running.

Cant unlock oven door


Hi, 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. 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.
*Note: 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 door will not unlock


Hello,, Some times this will happen after a self clean cycle if the timer did not finish the entire clean. Try to set the clock to start the self clean again then simply end the self clean. This should unlock the door. If the door remains locked. You may check the oven for an error code, or the door latch itself may need to be replaced. One other possible would be to turn off the power to the oven and try to let the oven control reset. leave the power off for about 15 minutes then turn the power back on. That will sometime work aswell. Good luck and feel free to call me if you need more help.

Ran self clean on my oven and it stopped in middle of cleaning cycle


That most likely means there is a fault in the control board. You need to contact the manufacturer or retailer for service.
