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.
