    Door will not lock

  • dhkhth Mar 04, 2008

    I am thinking it maybe a switch. I had a problem a couple of years ago where the light would not shut off, I thought it was just the light, I am very sure the procedure was done correctly. Thanks for your help.

Gas range oven door with not open


Your self cleaning cycle is running. When self cleaning is running the door is automatically locked and will not unlock until the self cleaning cycle completes or self cleaning is turned off. You should be able to just turn off the self cleaning cycle and the door will unlock. Do not try to pry open the oven door. You will just damage the door and/or the catch.

Amana range model 770M door won't fully close


Is the door hitting the door lock hook. Or a strike pin hitting the inside door panel. If this is a self cleaning range the door seal is a metal mesh and does hold the door slightly away, this is normal. More info ?

Amana Oven Door won't open. Latch to lock it is broken.


After pressing Self Clean, Adjusting the Time and Pressing Start, the self cleaning cycle shows the # F57_ on the read-out. I tried to cancel and now the door opens, but I can't get the Bake to begin when I press Start. No matter what I press LOC flashes on and off, but the door is unlocked and the heat is off.
Please help!

Oven door is locked


the oven door should only unlock the door when it deems the temperature a safe temperature.. there are 2 other possible reasons.. the door lock motor could be bad.. or the control is bad.. you would need an electric volt meter to test to see which it is.. if you need further assistance please ask b4 rating

Viking range self cleaning not working - door locked


This is a more common problem than revealed by Viking.
Heres how I an "amature" fixed it.
Top center of many viking ovens have slots. With a small flashlight look into the center slots. "Its HARD to see" Look for something
shiney thats the latch/hook everything else will be dark.
I used a shish ka bab skwer. You need something like that or maybe an ice pick. Knives screwdrivers and things like that will
damage the face of the oven and then after opeining it you will forever feel bad about marring that very expensive unit.
Take the pick and with the flashlight guide it to the shiney part.
Once touching push to the LEFT. Keep trying as the pick will slip
many times. The latch should have no resistance if you can get on it.
Once open you can try and reset the hook to its open position.
Mine would not reset and prevented the door from closing.
This is now another fix. To keep the hook held to the open position. E mail me for how I jury rigged this part.
Mexvillas@aol.com
I have the hook held open now and will never be able to use the self clean function again. But thats better for me than a open wallet fix for the repair man and then wonder when it will happen again. To repeat. This is a known problem with Viking ovens.

Cheers

Oven door stuck on locked!


E1-F5 indicates door lock motor has probably failed.....Self clean on many ovens can be a self destruct mode. Door latch motors, sensor probes and even the electronic controls can be destroyed by this operation. Suggest oven cleaner method next time...

On many freestanding stoves the lock motor is located in the right rear (looking from the front) with a long rod connected to the lock. Remove the motor and unhook the rod from the motor cam. If it is a built-in over, sometimes bending a coat hanger into a hook and sliding from the right side into the lock you can unlock the door.

MAYTAG (AMANA) OVEN DOOR


I finally got my door back on, I had to wedge a butter knife in the hinge to keep it open, then I could put it back on the pins and slide the metal cover/locking thinge over it. Was a pain in the ass.
