    After exposeing the locking mechanism motor it must be turned with pliers, channel locks or whatever works for you until both limit switches are engaged. Light is out, lock is open although non functioning. The unit can be used until a new motor is installed or the oven is replaced.

    I forced the side of the oven to one side of the cabinet to strip the screws then did the same to the other side. Pull oven out of cabinet, removed the 5 screws holding the fan housing cover. I then removed the screw holding the lock lever ASM and moved it in order to open the door. I have not yet made the door locked notice go out which in itself makes the unit inoperatableble. The motor has not made a complete cycle so I think there is an electrical problem between switches.

If you have the front cover removed from your oven, you may then proceed to remove the wires to the lock. After that reconnect the power to the oven and the oven computer should sense an unlock condition and return power to your unit so you can cook. Take care to tape those wire leads.

Some models with oven Set and Temperature knobs must have those knobs set in the Clean position before the latch can be moved to the left. If your door won't unlock, try turning those knobs back to Clean, then slide the latch over.

Lock light on frigdaire self cleaning oven


OK, this is not a good situation here. your Electronic Oven Control board is damaged. the logic sectors are faulty. The F-1 represents a major EOC failuer and, you will need to replace your EOC(clock) asap, if possible.

Amana EvenAir Convection Plus Self Cleaning Oven will not unlock.


My oven was locked and would not open. No lock light was on but the oven was clearly locked. F9 error when I hit certain buttons.

Try this. I unplugged the oven for about 5 minutes. Plugged back in. A LOCK light came on. Held down "Oven Cancel" for a few seconds. Door opened and lock light went off. No more F9 error when I hit those buttons.

What is the reset button for GE Profile JTP18?


For me the solution was in the temperature sensor. The Locked light kept flashing and the door locking mechanism kept cycling when the door was shut or if I just held the oven light switch in the closed door position. After replacing the control panel I still had the same problem. Next I turned off the breaker and then took off the wire covers on the back of the oven and disconnected the temperature sensor. I then checked the continuity of the sensor which was fine. With the sensor still unplugged, I turned the breaker back on and the panel said locked but the locking mechanism was not cycling. With power still on to the oven I connected the temperature sensor. It worked. All I had to do was press the clear button on the touch panel and everything was fine. I turned the breaker back off and reassembled the oven. Hope this helps.

"Door Locked" flashing on GE Oven JTP15 - can't unlock


The problem may very well be in one of the micro switches on the self cleaning motor bracket. These switches control the electrical flow to the heating elements. In the owners manual there is/should be a chart that lists the unlock and safety combinations. This would be your best source of information.

"door lock" light stays on and oven won't work


On mine, I was able to take of the face plate and unscrew the metal locking arm from the motor. Once i wiggled the locking arm away from the locked position I was able to open the door. Once i opened the door, the little motor which controls the locking arm automatically rotated to the unlocked position and cleared teh "locked door" message on the control panel.
