There is a thermal fuse in the back of the oven that more than likely has tripped during self clean poor air flow around can cause this power surges during self clean can too you have to pull the oven out and remove back panel to find it

I started a self clean on my oven, and then shut it off, the door opened, now it will not close, seem like the latch is in the lock posistion. help

For an oven self cleaning problem, the first thing to check is the door lock motor and switch assembly. Every self cleaning oven door has a locking mechanism to prevent the door from being opened during the cleaning cycle. An oven self cleaning problem often happens after a clean cycle has been run. If that happens, more often then not the lock assembly will need to be replaced. The door lock motor and switch assembly, over time, fail due to the high temperatures that are encountered during the cleaning cycle.
Here is the part to order.

All parts come with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

Oven went dead in self clean mode and the door remains locked. Is this the thermostat? How do I get the door unlocked when control panel shut down? Kitchenaide KGRA806

Unplugged the stove and turn off the gas.Take the back off the oven and replace the thermostat. It's super easy. Before you buy the part call kitchen aid... this is a known problem. They will say the parts are not free and try to give you a discount. But if you continue to argue , they'll send it for free.

After using the self-clean cycle, display panel went black and oven door stayed locked.

Happens alot dont feel bad , self clean mode runs the elements at 500 deg. to cook off everything possible , what happens is the cabinet gets to hot and heats saftey temp. fuses until they go out and they are not resetable. they are always located in different areas of ranges but usaully in the back. you can ohm them out to check them if you have a meter.let me know if you have any other questions.

Kitchen aid model# kgri801pbs

On most models, the door stays locked during a self clean, until the temperature returns to normal for safety reasons.

It sounds like your unit may have tripped a breaker during this self clean event. Check your panel for a tripped breaker. If the oven has cooled down, and the lock is still engaged, then we may have a different problem.

Let me know what you find out!

I recently encountered this issue after trying "self clean" on my KitchenAid oven for the first time. I wish I had read these forums and simply avoided the feature. KitchenAid was, of course, completely unhelpful since my warranty was expired. This is the first they've heard of the problem; perhaps search engines are prohibited within the KitchenAid community and they are unable to view the complaints of thousands of other customers as I have... but I digress.

The solution was straight forward: Don't worry about the locked door for now and pull the oven away from the wall. Safety first: unplug your oven and turn off your gas valve. Now remove the back panel. There is a sheet metal strip near the top of the oven that must be removed before the back panel comes loose. With the back panel removed, look for a circular device with a blue and white sticker on it and the part number: 8300802. This is a thermal fuse that blows when the oven gets too hot (apparently "too hot" is a subjective measure as normal operation during self clean will cause this issue). You can check it with a multimeter if you have one... a failed fuse will have a high resistance. To ensure this is your only issue and to immediately unlock your door, adventurous types can bypass the fuse by connecting the two wires that connect to the fuse and hold them together with some electrical tape. WARNING: never operate your oven in this manner. This is a quick test to verify resolution of the issue; not a permanent fix. Apply power to your oven and presto, your door will unlock and your front panel will illuminate.

Now, use the aforementioned search engine KitchenAid has never heard of and search for your new fuse: 8300802. I got mine for $34... you can probably find it for cheaper but my patience was wearing thin by the time I got to ordering a replacement part.

Oh, and one last step: never ever under any circumstances use the self clean feature. Do not take the easy route like I did: get your Brillo Pad and your Easy-Off and get dirty, you lazy bum.

We had the same problem as well. everything locked up and the display board went dead. It turned out to be the thermostat in the back. Once that was replaced everything worked ok. . The serviceman told us to pull the oven out from the wall when self cleaning. It is because the heat disapation and air circulation from the oven is very poor when running at maximum temperatures and this burns out components. First check the termostat, which is a $20.00 item.
