Oven door during self cleaning mode

My Jenn Air SEG 196 will not let me lock the oven door during self cleaning mode. Both dials are on clean mode and when I move the lock switch to the right an awful buzzing sound happens until I move the lever back to the left. Thanks for your time. Vickie Roberts

    Same problem. On a 20-year old built in Jenn Air, with both dials set to "clean," the oven door lock makes a buzzing noise when we try to set the lock and will not engage. Thus, no cleaning cycle can happen. Would like to clean the oven soon before cooking a turkey, but I sure hope that we don't end up with the door luck stuck shut like many others note. Regarding that, the manual says the knobs must be on "clean" in order to disengage the lock.

    My 11-year old dual-fuel SVD8310-C just did this today when I decided to clean the oven.

    My Jennair seg196 would not self clean after both dials were set to the cleaning setting. The lock engaged and not it will not open.

    I have the same problem...horrible buzz, exact same symptoms.
    To make matters worse, shyster repairman sent by home warranty came out and fiddled with it for 5 minutes (did NOT open it up to inspect the latch mechanism/switches/solenoid), told me he needed to order a new latch assembly, and then told the warranty people the latch must be bent by excessive force (so they denied my claim). The visible latch is not bent in any way, and once I educated myself as to what parts were involved, there is NO WAY he could diagnose the problem without opening up the stove. I need to know how to open this thing up to inspect the parts.

    I too have a SEG 196 and it does the same thing as jhoagland's. I cannot figure out how to open it up to access/inspect the solenoid and other parts.

    A crooked repairman for the home warranty company came out and fiddled with the latch arm for 5 minutes, tried to get it to lock, and then wrote up a bogus report to the warranty company that the latch was bent due to excessive force (so they won't cover). He did NOT open up this oven to inspect the parts at all, and the visible part of the latch is not even bent! Warranty co. is sending out another contractor tomorrow for 2nd opinion at my demand, but that company has an F rating with the better business bureau! Help!

Have a wall mounted Jenn-air oven. Have used self-cleaning feature before. Followed step by step instructions to the end including locking the door and pushing "Enter". Went to bead expecting to wake

This is a general answer and not specific. The oven thinks is still in the cleaning mode. If it has one, push the clean button again. Set the oven to a regular bake cycle.

I used the self cleaning mode on my dual fuel oven and can't get the door to unlock. Not sure what model, but it is about 12 years old.

if you have dial controles. if you turn off the oven thermostat to off, it will not let oven unlock. keepit set to clean and you should be able to unlatch.
If digatil clock ,auto lock try reseting into clean and then cancle it. Dont forcethe door. you will cause more dammage.

Jenn-Air stove locked

After the lock indicator light goes out, move the door lock lever to the left. The oven door can now be opened. Turn the selector and temperature knobs from clean to off AFTER THE DOOR IS UNLOCKED. If the temperature knob is turned to off BEFORE the door is unlocked, the door will not open. Forcing the lock will damage the lock mechanism. If this should happen, return the temperature knob back to CLEAN, unlock the door, THEN turn the temperature knob off.

Jenn Air oven door won't open after clean cycle

Had this EXACT same problem the day before a party where I needed the oven for lots of baking.... Tried all sorts of things, was about to call a repair man- I FINALLY got it to open by following the first two directions for putting it into self clean mode (turned both knobs to CLEAN), then when it said to lock door I tried to move the lock lever and bam it worked! Give it a shot! Good luck! (:

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.

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.

Jenn air s136 stove won,t self clean

You've probably already read pages 34 through 37 of the owners manual for this oven. We had this stove in the house we bought and the owner wrote in his own directions, which seem to work fine:

1. Turn knob selector to clean.
2. Turn temp knob to clean.
3. Close and lock door.
4. Push enter button and turn dial clockwise to desired time.
5. Push enter button again.

You've probably already tried this, but just in case I figured I'd pass it along.
