Dear electronic guru!!!
Jenn-aire door lock LOCKED! after self-cleaning - won't open, have unplugged for 2 days, etc, still is locked (hopefully clean by now), have never had an owner's manual, but have successfully oven self-cleaned before....
I turned the feature on, let it go for aprox. 6 hrs, it was still cleaning, had to leave and didn't want to leave that heat on if I weren't home, let it cool - locked and wouldn't open. Unplugged for 2 days, plugged back in, and lock still won't budge - I'll send biscotti if I can get it baked!!!!
Thanks for ANY assistance - Deborah

Most likely you set a child lock (front panel lock) by holding a button too long (3 seconds). Without a model number, I can't be absolutely sure of the keypad lock for your Jenn-Aire microwave. Usually, the key will have a small padlock icon on it. Press and hold this key. On my microwave you press and hold Start to toggle the lock off.
On a Jenn-Aire JMW2430 and similar models, the Button Lock is activated by a several step process (More and Button Lock). However, pressing and holding the Start button will deactivate it.
the self clean cycle will run for 2-3 hrs and the door will remain locked for another couple hrs while cooling let it finish and wait till the next day basically if it still wont open (sorta common) the door lock assy needs replacing.
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.
