Since you said everything is off, it is impossible for the door to open. Is the door working with electric power?

If it is, it is possible that the fuse that is working with the door might have cut off or perhaps the wire that connects the bosch to the main socket i damaged.

It is also possible you operates at an higher temperature than what is required that is why it gets shut that you could not open it..

Firstly, i advice you check the main socket that that supply you electricity to see if there is current in the socket because it is possible that the voltage might have cut off.

Take a very close look at the wire and plug that connect your bosch to the power supply, to see if the wire is not cut or damage, check if the plug does not have any coarse smell because it is possible that the fuse might have got burnt.

If you are able to locate this, you can make a change of the damage item.

Take care.

How can I unlock a bosch dual fuel over?

To open the door, raise the oven top and use a a flat head screwdriver to open the lock manually. It might still click shut when you close the door again. If so, you will have to take the top of the range off and examine the latch.

Upper and lower elements in my bosch HBE 632 elec oven work well individually but only the lower element works in dual element mode.

If it is a fan assisted oven, and it is the fan oven you are referring to, then I would suspect the fan element to be faulty.
Assuming you are in the U/K, this should be located at the rear of the oven compartment behind a removeable cover.
Alternatively, it is possible that the selector switch could be faulty, but I would check all elements first.

I have a 3-year old GE Profile gas range. Yesterday after cooking for about an hour at 350, and after the over was turned off, the "locked door" light started flashing and the door lock hook moved so that...

This is a Door lock malfunction. you will need to replace the door lock mechanism. it is faulty.
Test the door lock mech for its operational value to be sure.if the door mech test is good, replace the control(ERC/Clock)
check the connections that lead form the door lock mechanism to the control board. if the wiring harness is in good condition and, the connectors are not corroded, simply replace the door lock mechanism(assembly)..
hope ur prob will b sorted out
do let me kno

Dacor CPO230, can't get lock to engage for self cleaning. I follow step clean symbolcomes up door lock moves into locked position then beeping starts and the word door flashes and the lock opens up.

For some reason the oven thinks you have a door that is not shut all of the way. Check the locking slot to make sure that there are no obstructions. Make sure that you are only doing one oven at a time, and not trying to cook in the other. Make sure you have no racks in the oven. Try pushing lightly on the door when the lock engages. For some reason your lock isn't engaging fully and that's why door is flashing. Good Luck
Below is from the owners manual for your oven.

Oven does not self-clean Door not shut tight Check for obstructions. Close door tightly
Oven set for delay timed cleaning Oven will start to self-clean at preset time.
Press CANCEL/SECURE to return to
normal operation
Double ovens only: Other oven is on. Turn off other oven.

Bosch 755 Oven resets during cooking

Hi Jim. Thanks for your request re prob with your oven.
Unfortunately, this is not a problem I have come across before, so in this instance, I am unable to help solve it for you.
Only thing I can suggest at this time is that you check all connections and plug in connectors, you never know it could be caused by a bad or intermittent connection.
Once again, sorry I can't be of more help.
