Either unplug or turn the off off at the breaker. It may clear the problem. This happens a lot after clean cycles. Sometimes the electronics fry due to high heat, so try not to use self clean very often.

If this doesn't work, leave comments with your oven model and type of lock if you know. The instructions for opening a stuck lock depend on which type of lock you have: solenoid controlled buzz when setting or unlocking and have an arm you move to engage the lock. Heat sensitive locks have an lever you move to lock and un-lock, but don't make noises. Motorized locks don't have handles or levers, and lock by themselves. Thanks for your question, I hope the first instruction helps.

How do I unlock my gas stove oven?

Thank you for your inquiry, friend!
From the information you have provided you need assistance unlocking your Frigidaire oven. Performing a reset on your oven can trigger the door latch to unlock, in order to reset your oven you would need to disconnect power from it for roughly ten minutes. If this does not unlock your oven you can also hold down the clear or cancel button for 10 to 15 seconds. You can also attempt to perform a self-clean cycle and before the cycle starts cancel it and that can trick your oven into unlocking. If these troubleshooting steps do not help resolve your issue please feel free to reconnect. I would be happy to provide you further assistance. -Matt

My oven is saying unlock door after self cleaning but the door is open

It's likely that the door switch has failed, or stuck in the depressed position from grease or your oven cleaner spray solution. To correct this problem, remove the door switch and inspect with a multimeter for continuity connection.

Used the self cleaning cycle 24 hrs. ago, but the oven door will not unlock. We tried to run it through another clean cycle but we recieve an E1 error.

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.
you may have done a panel lock, so try the first solution.

To Lock/Unlock Control: Before locking, make sure the ovens, Timer and Timed Cooking are off. Press and hold START/ENTER until a single tone sounds and "Loc," a picture of a lock and "START?" will appear on the oven display, about 5 seconds. Repeat to unlock and remove "Loc" from display.

To Stop Self-Clean any time:
Press UPPER OFF, LOWER OFF or OFF/CANCEL. If the oven temperature is too high, the door will remain locked. It will not unlock until the oven cools.
