Question about Kitchen Ranges
I cleaned my oven yesterday and tried to open the lever before it was ready and now my oven door seems to be locked (no matter which position you put the lever)
THIS IS NOT A STRANGE PROBLEM. Many times the lever that you move to lock door becomes slightly bent and it now will not travel completely to the unlock position (yet you can't tell just by looking) and it only needs to travel another 1/8 or 1/4 inch; you need to bend the handle in the oposite direction in order to get the extra clearance when moved to the unlock position. If this does not work, then you need to remove the burner top; some lift up, others need the individual burners removed (unscrewed) so the burner top can be lifted. Inside you will see a metal arm attached to the lever. This arm is either moved by a small servo-motor (geared rotation motor) or it is attached to a small micro switch or magnetic selenoid. You may need to disconnect the arm or rod from any of these components in order to move the lock lever and tereby release the lever tong from the door. Goodluck, Macgivor
