    I don't know which manual you are having thats why I provided you the link. The procedure is with big pictures hence I can't copy paste it over here. To me it seems that you are having users manual and in users manual they only tell how to operate but the one which I provided is a service manual and it describes in detail how to open the door manually. It is described on page 45
    I'm not pasting that because this is the result after pasting this is the contents and once I paste look what hapens to it.

    hi there,
    before getting back to you in my first mail, i also checked the link you sent and i could not find usable information. now i checked again, and i am thinking maybe we misunderstand each other.
    i dont need to remove the glass.
    i can not open the door. it is completely locked.
    i therefore can not assemble or disassemble anything described in the manual.
    do you have any other advice?
    i suppose it is an electrical fault ...
    thnx so much for your help

    Most ranges today use 3 different types of door is a
    solenoid controlled lock ( you hear a loud buzz noise when setting or
    unlocking the lock and has a arm that you must move to set the lock
    )...another is a heat sensitive lock ( has a arm that you must move to
    lock and un-lock, makes no noises and has a spring that slowly moves to
    lock the door will the oven is heating up )...Some locks are motorized
    ( no handle to move, the motor locks the door by it's self when you set
    the range for self clean )... If the motorized and heat sensitive locks
    fails to open after the self clean cycle, you must access the lock and
    move it yourself to open the door.

    How to access lock.

    On the free standing ranges, most times you must lift the cook top to
    access the lock mechanism. On built in ovens, the oven must be pulled
    out to remove the top access panel to get at the lock mechanism.

    Removing control panel

    Unplug or remove power from the range. Take the rear cover off the
    range. Locate the door latch assembly and operate it manually and open
    your door. Then check continuity of the solenoid. Some of the latch
    assemblies have micro switches to supply power also. You may need to
    check them. You should be able to get the door open and use your range
    until you can get a tech to repair if you can not repair yoursel

The oven lock is a safety feature designed to keep children from injuring themselves on the oven. When the oven lock is enabled, the control panel is inoperable and the oven door locks. Before you can use the oven as normal you need to disable the lock.

Pull lightly on the oven door or by check for the word "Lock" and "Off" on the display screen to make sure the oven door is locked. You may actually lock the oven if you don't check before attempting to unlock it.

Press and hold the "Clear/Off" button on the oven until you hear a beep and the word "Off" disappears from the display. The word "Lock" will remain in the display until the door lock is disengaged, which could take up to 15 seconds. You can now use the oven as normal.

Reengage the oven lock by pressing and holding the "Clear/Off" button until "Lock" and "Off" reappear on the display.

I hope this helps to solve your problem.

Take care.

Hot air blowing out at the top of De Dietrich oven, just after putting on new oven seal, fan seems ok what could it be.

Pending on the location of the oven (i.e. not where the seal is) it could be natural ventilation of the oven. Many ovens have ventilation underneath the stovetop.

How to get the heating element out of the large oven in a De Dietrich DOD348*

If you mean the element at the back (not the bottom one), inside the oven undo a screw at the back to reveal the element, then undo one more screw attaching the element. THEN, totally disassemble the oven, removing all the cladding, taking off the top oven and controls, detaching lots of wires to be able to do this, in order to finally gain access to the 2 little nuts securing the element behind the oven. Then if you're not sufficiently dismayed by De Dietrich's design skills, email their customer service to be given the wrong part recommendation at twice the price of an independent supplier. Finally, buy part from independent supplier, spend several hours dismantling and rebuilding oven. Then it will work. But maybe don't ever buy De Dietrich (Brandt) again!

Oven Light does not turn off

The problem is due to a faulty door switch, this is part of the door lock mechanism. The reason is that the oven thinks the door is open , this puts on the light and stops some of the oven functions ie the fan the fan element and probably the bottom element.
The answer is to fit a new door lock mechanism.

My oven keeps turning itself off

the oven may be trying to protect itself because of a faulty device that says "I'm too hot". As electric clothes dryers have a thermal high temp limit switch to protect them, look for this device (may be 1 inch round with 2 wires connected) and replace it
