Question about Kitchen Ranges
Oven door is locked, won't allow reset via clear/off, I unplugged, hoping to "reboot" but when I plugged it back in, same status. Time didn't help: I eft it "locked" overnight. Still won't clear. . (... I accidentally hit "clean" last night and immediately pressed buttons to stop. I successfully stopped "clean, but can't make it unlock. It's Frigidaire ES300 Control, Self-Cleaning oven. The manual does not address this problem.
I had the same problem on my Kenmore Electric Range. Door would not unlock. Tried pressing "Off" for multiple seconds, but still would not unlock. No error codes. Clock was displaying normally. Finally decided to try running it thru the self cleaning operation to get it to cycle thru locking and unlocking the door. When I started self clean, the door automatically went thru the auto lock and "locked" appeared in the display. I then hit "Off" to clear it and stop the cleaning cycle. The door then unlocked as normal!

I had the same problemI looked at the above answers And here is what I came up with. my door was locked open so in order to start the clean cycle I had to hold in the door position/light switch only then would the clean cycle start. After a short time (only 30 to 60 seconds) I hit the clean/off button and the door latch retracted

From Don H.
I have the problem with the oven door locked and the code F2E0 showing and here is what I found!! When I tried the clean cycle the locking solenoid would try to engage ,or disengage if I tried to cancel , but the door would not release. After opening up the back with the power off I tried to cycle the solenoid manually and it worked fine. However on close inspection I found that the micro switches ,which detect the position of the locking arm, were not closing. I found the upper bolt which holds the adjustment of the switches was loose! I realigned the microswitch assembly to close properly , tightened that bolt and all is well. Restored the power, cleared the code and everything works fine.

My oven door would open but the oven would not start because of the "un lock door" message. I tried the start self-clean and stopped the cycle after a minute. Did not work I tried to reset the system: unplug for 30 sec. with door closed, plugged it in and waited 60 sec. Did not work. I slammed the door closed without breaking it. That did work. I guess the vibrations rattled it every thing back into place.

I went to my fuse box and turned off the power for the oven. Once that was done, I was able to pull the latch back to the unlocked position. I turned the power back on and the oven is working fine now.

THANK YOU BREADLESS...I had a similar problem with my Kenmore built-in oven. I accidentally pushed the clean button and then immediately opened the door. The clean cycle stopped but I could not close the door because the latch was in the locked postion. Holding the clear button for 3 seconds activated the latch to move to the unlocked position and I was able to close the door.

After self clean the door will not unlock. Tried resetting circuit breaker several times. Tried to restart the cleaning and cancel after 15 min. Tried restarting cleaning and cancel after 1 min. Tried holding clear off for several seconds. Nothing has worked. I have a 9 yr old ge true temp double oven.

Tips for a great answer:
Hello Steven Krenz - Was the unit in self-clean mode? Try pressing and holding the "Clear/Off" button to stop any operation of the EOC. Do this at the same time while pushing and hold the light switch to the left of the door lock. Usually this will trick the oven into unlocking the door. If it is ineffective, try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and redo the steps. If door continues to maintain locked while open, the unit may possibly have a faulty door latch or a communication problem with the EOC. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

1.Press the "Clear/Off" button on the control panel to reset the oven. This will clear the lock setting and unlock the door.
2.Allow the oven to cool to room temperature to avoid turning the lock on again during this heating cycle.
3.Reset the oven to the temperature you require to finish cooking by pressing the correct temperature control on the control pad.
1.If your GE Profile microwave won't turn on, unplug it, then plug it back in. A power outage may have occurred due to a power surge. Check your home's fuses and circuit breakers.
2.Set the clock of your GE Profile microwave. Certain models will not operate until you set the clock. Select the "Clock" key and type in the correct time.
3.Hold down your microwave's "Off" button. You may have accidentally hit the control-lock feature on your GE Profile microwave. Hold down the "Off" button for three seconds to turn the lock off.
4.If the sensors of your GE Profile microwave are not working correctly, remove the food from the machine. If the sensors detect food-surface temperatures over 200 degrees Fahrenheit, it will not work properly until the area cools down.
5.Contact GE Support if you are unable to resolve the issue on your own. Call the GE Support hotline or browse the help library on the GE website. You can also schedule a service visit on GE's website.
