HI. you will need to press the 9 and 0 pad on the touch pad, simultaneously, for 5 seconds. This will unlock the unit. if this doesn't release the child lock feature, you may have a severe control board issue. this will require you to unplug, or shutdown the appropriate circuit breaker for 5 minutes. The will force a reset of the main control sector. Once the 5 minutes have passed, simply re-introduce power to the unit, and try to preform a baking cycle. If the unit is still locked, kindly replace the main control board.


Now, if you are referring to a stuck door lock mechanism, or your door wont unlock after a self cleaning session, this will indicate that the door lock mech is damaged. You will need to replace the door lock mechanism, in this case.

Try cutting the power to the oven for about 20 minutes and see if it will reset and release the door lock. Hope this helps.

The display shows LOC - but the door is open - cant turn on the oven


Hello & Welcome to FixYa
After reading your question the problem seems to be with the control which got locked. To unlock the controls press and hold the STOP/OVEN LOCK button for 20 seconds. If the problem returns then check the door and make sure it is fine, after this you can unplug the unit for 15 minutes and then try to reset it again. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

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.

I did a self clean on my tappan electric oven; cant get the door to open.... what can i do?


MaryAnn, If you try to push the locking lever/handle towards the "lock" position first, then pull it back towards the open position, it should unlock for you.

However if that doesn't work, you can turn off the breaker for the electric range, in most electric panels, it is marked as "Range" or "Stove" but is typically a double pole 50 Amp Breaker (It takes up 2 spaces). If you look at the handles of the breakers, you should be able to see the numbers "50" on the handle.

Once you turn off the power, you should be able to unlock the oven. Some ranges require that the power be on in order to unlock it, but first try to open it with the power turned off, and it that doesn't work, turn the breaker back on and the door should be able to be unlocked.

Remember that it will take a little bit of effort to get the door to unlock in some cases, so give it a good tug.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

F90 code flashing and i cant reset it


F90 Maximum oven door unlock time exceeded.
F91 Maximum oven door unlock attempts exceeded.
F92 Maximum oven door open time exceeded.
F93 Maximum oven door lock time exceeded.
F94 Maximum oven door lock attempts exceeded.


1. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Check the wiring between EOC & Lock Motor Micro Switch.

2. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Replace the Motor Door Latch assembly if necessary.

3. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Check for binding of the Latch Cam, Lock Motor Rod & Lock Motor Cam.

4. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Check to see if Lock Motor Coil is open. If open, replace Lock Motor Assembly.

5. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Lock Motor continuously runs - if Micro Switch is open, replace Lock Motor Assembly.

6. (F92, 93 & 94) Check oven door Light Switch - if open, replace Switch.

7. If all situations above do not solve problem, replace EOC.


F90 is a door lock code, Try this...
unplug the range.
wait 1 minute.
turn the range back on,
then while holding in on the oven door.
start another self clean.
wait 2 minutes.
then cancel the self clean.

do not release the door until the door lock light goes out.

Door lock lites keeps flashing but the door is not locked


The F9 code indicates there is a problem with the door lock.

Try disconnecting the power to the range for 10 seconds and reconnecting. Open the oven door and hold the door switch plunger in while you try these things. Put the control into clean for 5 minutes then cancel clean. You must hold the door switch plunger in for the 5 minutes.

Try canceling the clean cycle without putting the control into clean.

How do I switch off child lock from my neff oven 1641


So, you should have a "-s-" being displayed if you have the child lock on.
The switch for selecting the oven mode( oven, fan oven, grill etc)
-from its off position, turn it one click left so the light comes on, and then click it back to off. Do this three times in quick succession. The "-s-" should now have disappeared and you can use your oven again.
Regards,
Steve.

i suspect you took the door off without locking the hinges
you will have to put the hinges in the lock position before putting back.
lay door on a blanket with hinges upwards. force the hinges back and bring the locking arm up to lock the hinges.
this requires considerable strength
