Door locked after power surge/failure

We had a power failure and our Gaggenau electric wall oven door will not open. We have tried taking off the child lock and flipping the breaker. It's an older oven like EB270

Re: Door locked after power surge/failure

We did leave the breaker off for more than 5 minutes and did try the pyro clean mode letting it heat up and then canceling it. When the oven reached locking temperature it didn't self-lock nor did it unlock. The lock symbol is also not lit on the panel at any time... Thanks for the suggestions though!

Re: Door locked after power surge/failure

The question here is how long did you leave the breaker off? Gaggenau ovens have a memory and I always advise turn the oven off for 5 mins before turning the breaker back on. Give that a try. The first thing the oven does when the power is reapplied is go thru a test phase which included locking and unlocking the door. The key symbol will go on and off during this. Sometimes you have to also can run a self clean then cancel it to reset the lock. This works as well.

How do I clean between the glass?

Hello Alison;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

This is a bit of a task.

1.) Remove the oven door - Put the door in the first locking position (Opened partly at the top) Pull straight up. When replacing the oven door make sure the door hinges are in the same first open position.
2.) Lay the door face down on the floor.
3.) Remove the back panel. You may have torque screws requiring a special screw driver.
4.) Remove the door latch assembly. But first take a picture of the latch so you can reassembly properly.
5.) Remove the oven glass retaining brackets/plates.
6.) Remove the inner glass.

When you are doing this task make sure you lay out the parts in the order in which they were removed for re-assembly.

Why is the oven stuck with a "Door Locked" error?

Just guessing but did you just use the clean cycle???? During clean, the oven temp gets high enough to trip the door lock safety thermostat. This is to keep owners from trying to open the door when oven is too hot from clean cycle. It sounds like that safety didn't reset to normal when it cooled off and therefore the door is still locked. With door locked you may need to get oven out of the wall and remove top cover to get to the lock system and thermostats. Make sure power is off before doing any of this.

Here's the info from the service manual

I have a Gaggenau 270-271 wall oven. It is showing F 42 on the screen. what does this mean?

Open circuit in the door contact switch even if the door is locked.
If this happened during a clean cycle sometimes if you start another cycle and then switch the selector off after a few seconds the fault will right itself. If this doesn't work then you probable need a new door lock.
Hope this helps
