Range - Oven Door Won't Unlock After Self Clean

The Oven Door has been Locked Accidentally:

  • If no food or utensils are in oven, put it into a short self-clean cycle (1-2 hours).


  • If there is food in the oven, let the oven cool to room temperature and try to unlatch the door.


  • With electronic ranges there is a small chance that turning the circuit breaker off for a few minutes and turning it back on can release the door. latch to the "off"


  • Note: Do not force the latch at anytime!

Door Will Not Unlock After Cleaning:

On models with mechanical latches:
  • Once the oven is cool after a self-clean cycle (approximately 30-90 minutes), slide the latch over to the left.(Some older models have a latch release button that must be pushed in while sliding the latch over.)
Note: 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.

If the above suggestions do not work try the following to unlock your door:
  1. Disconnect power to range for 30 seconds.
  2. Reconnect power and see if door will unlatch.
  3. If door does not unlatch, and you do have food in the oven, wait for oven to cool completely and try again. If it still will not open you will need service.
  4. If door does not unlatch, and you do not have food in the oven, set the oven up to clean for 1-2 hours.
  5. Wait approximately 30 minutes and try to unlock the door.
  6. If the door unlocks, the control has reset itself and there should not be any other problems.
  7. Note: Under no circumstances should you ever force the door or latch open.

You will need to replace the switches on the door lock motor, if they are the type that are rivetted onto the motor then you have to replace the whole lock mechanism. For pricing info, and to learn how to do the repair yourself, please reply.

Please rate my solution if it was helpful to you.

Thanks, Repairman45

I have exactly the same problem. I take it no one has offered a solution to this. Don't know if this is a lining coming loose and potentially dangerous. Anyone know?

Door lock is stuck closed cannot shut door?


Good Morning Richard, thank you for your inquiry!

Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire oven door is stuck closed and you are unable to shut the door. You can disconnect power from your range for at least ten minutes and that will reset your oven. This may trick your door latch into opening.

You can also hold down the cancel or clear button for 10 to 15 seconds that may allow your door latch to release. Also attempt to hold down the light and cancel buttons. I hope this information has been helpful to some degree. -Matt

Locked door flashes and oven will not start


Per GE Service bulletin # RA 03-01:

Serial Numbers affected: TZ, VZ, ZZ, AA, DA

Door will not open after self clean cycle due to motorized latch motor stuck in closed position or grinding noise during motorized lock operation.
Both issues are caused by interference of the inner vent trim slot with the latch arm as it travels to the closed position.

Correction:
Replace both the lock motor (WB14T10008) and inner vent trim (WB07T10179).
Failure to replace the inner vent trim will not correct the problem long term, and subsequent lock motor failures will occur.

Oven door latch will not release so that I can open the door


Try jiggling the door by the handle. Jiggle it hard, both sideways, in/out and up/down. The little piece in there that releases the door may just be stuck, and didn't move quite far enough to let the door open. These things happen.

F7 shows instead of door lock


This happens with a lot of ovens. It's because the mechanism that locks the door is stuck. When the door doesn't lock you can't do a self clean. They don't want you to be able to open the door while the oven is 800 degrees? or so. Look just below the little button that gets pushed in when the door is closed, upper left, and you should see a vertical slot. This is where a little lever comes out and grabs the slot on the door. There is a microswitch inside that tells the oven if the lever has come out or not. Your lever is stuck.
You can test this in a totally dangerous way by opening the door, holding in the button, and turning on the self cleaning. If everything is correct you will see the lever come out to grab and lock the door, but your's won't because it's stuck. Jiggle it or push on it or pull on it with needle nosed pliers. It frees up pretty easily. But when it does, the oven will go into self clean, which you don't want it to do with the door open, so turn it off, close the door and try again. It should work fine.

How to put oven door back on after removing!


Although very tight (because the oven is only 1 yr old) i managed to get the hinges into the open position, then slide the door into position on the oven and close the door. The hinges did go back and lock as they should but I struggled for almost 30 mins before success.

Oven door will not open


If you have just finished using the self clean part, the latch may be stuck. Push the door closed and hold it and then tap moderately on the door where the latch is and it may release. Unplug the oven and then then replug after 10-15 seconds.

Oven door stuck


To open the door, raise the oven top and use a a flat head screwdriver to open the lock manually.
The door will still lock itself when you close it, so this is only usefull to get your food out.

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.
