Self cleaning oven latch is stuck and the oven no longer works

We have a Jenn-Air drop-in style stove (cook top + oven) that was bought about 1989. Recently the cleaning lady tried unsuccessfully to use the oven's self cleaning feature and could not get it to work. Although the oven door opens and closes normally, the locking handle seems to be slightly to the right of the fully left position. It seems stuck. I have not forced it. Since then, the oven and broiler do not work. The cook top works normally and the circuit breakers are set. Is there anything I can do or try other than call the repairman?

Lever will not unlatch after cleaning.


The lock is a latch connected to a temperature sensitive bi-metallic spring that locks the door when HOT and releases it when it cools to a safe level. Self cleaning ovens reach over 500F in cleaning mode.

If it's been a few hours and the door is cool it should open. If not, press the door closed a bit and whack the top of the stove with your hand. It may be stuck or gummed up as that part does not get cleaned during the cycle.

You may be able to raise the top of the burner deck like the hood of a car and see some part of the locking mechanism and be able to get the door open. Replace the lock.

Need help unlock oven after self cleaning jenn air jjw9527


The temperature setting must be set on "Cleaning" and the oven cooking dial to "Clean"; otherwise the door will not open and forcing will damage the mechanism. Also, before the door will open, the internal temperature must drop to a safe level and a red "cleaning" light must go off, after the temperature drops inside the oven.

Stove cleaning


The filter in the jenn air can be run through the dishwasher. clean the outside of the oven as best as you can before you start the self clean cycle. NEVER!!! use oven cleaner inside a self cleaning oven. or on the gasket. . You can use a degreaser or oven cleaner on the cooktop on any stainless steel, procelain or chrome surface. Don't get oven cleaner on painted or aluminum surfaces. Rinse off very well.

Jenn air oven stuck closed after attempt to activate self-cleaning


The lock motor may have failed. Most often, bending a coat hanger into a hook and sliding from the right side as you move the door to the right,will allow you to release the lock and open the door.

Jen air locked latch after cleaning


I finally got my oven to work properly by shutting off the breaker and resetting the main clock. Cured the always locked problem as well as the beep twice when self cleaning.

Have to repeat this every few months since the problem seems to come back.
