While attempting to use the self-cleaning feature the top oven locked and now does not respond to any buttons on the control panel. We tried turning off power @ the electric box in the basement. Still no go. How can I get the top oven to work again?

    thanks for the detail.

    The cleaning cycle never occurred, it just locked and stopped functioning.

    I believe that there is a series of buttons that can be pressed on the control panel to "reset" the oven. My hope is that this will fix the problem since the lower oven on the same unit continues to work.

    Any ideas on what this combination of buttons could be?

  • ehaunz Jun 05, 2010

    Thanks for your ideas. It got us thinking...

    We solved the problem by pushing in on the door until the lock hardware engaged. It was stuck between the lock and unlock cycle. First it openned but the display said the lock was still on, then we pressed and held the keys to unlock and it cleared the lock reading from the display and the unit is now fully functional.

Hello,

Check to make sure that the oven's digital display still shows "Lock" or "Off." If neither of these messages show, the oven is not locked and requires no further effort to unlock it.

Wait for the oven to cool completely, if it has been on the self-cleaning cycle, before attempting to unlock or open the oven door. It will automatically unlock once the oven has cooled, which may take several hours depending on the temperature of the cleaning cycle.

Press and hold the "Cancel" and "Cook & Hold" buttons on the oven or, if you have dual ovens installed, the upper oven. This will reverse a manual locking of the oven door.

Wait until the message "Lock" flashes on the digital display, then release the buttons. Your oven is now unlocked.

Take care.

    Hello,

    If the above did not solve the problem, then, Perform a hard reset. Pull the plug out of the wall power supply while it is on, and
    wait a moment before plugging it back. Plug the oven back into the wall power supply to
    reset any anomalies with the oven memory.

    Take care.

As per the procedure after self-cleaning the door will remain locked for one hour while the oven cools down.But if still the door will not get unlocked then its the problem with door latch assembly.The assembly has got cracked internally and that is not letting the door to open.But if the door latch checks out ok then its the problem of control board.The control board got short in the self cleaning procedure.Many users face this same problem in self-cleaning .If you open the door by mistake in between the self cleaning procedure then the door latch gets short or the control board gets short. The possibilities you can try to unlock the door is as follows:-- If a self clean oven door lock fails to open after the self clean cycle and sufficient cooling time has elapsed (approximately 1 hour), there are several things you can try.

  1. Unplug the unit or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Plug the unit back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and gently try moving the door lock lever (is so equipped) or opening the door.

  2. Set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for 15 minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever (is so equipped) or opening the door.
If these procedures fail to correct the condition, the lock must usually be accessed and moved manually to open the door.
Most ranges today use 3 different types of door locks...one 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. 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. Some build in ovens can have the control console removed to access the lock system. On the heat sensitivestyle of lock, there are no electrical parts to operate the lock, usually you will need to replace the lock. On the motorized style of lock, you will have to use a ohm/volt meter to test why the motor will not work. On the solenoid style of lock, the solenoid is often mounted on the back of the range and can be accessed by removing the rear panel, some may be mounted at the front, such as in a built in oven. The failure of the solenoid style of lock is normally caused by a bad lock solenoid. In order to get your door open, you must operate the door latch mechanism manually. 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 yourself.
 For getting required parts you can get it from the on-line site like www.repairclinic.com 
Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

How to operate the self-cleaning feature?


Remove the racks and go for it. What it does is locks the oven and superheats the oven space which turns any grease or splashes to ash. When the cycle is finished, the door will unlock.

After self cleaning oven door remains shut won't open, no access by push buttons which are now not lit


oven will stay locked till oven cools off to room temp , this is a safety feature (no burnt hands) and no front panel controls should be able to override this feature , if it still wont open some models have a "release" button that must be pressed on top back control panel after a clean cycle is run to signal to operator that oven is ready to wiped out , but that's a feature that id only seen on commercial ovens

Oven not heating up after using self clean oven feature


OK. Not a professional, but I happen to have a lot of experience with this situation. For reference, I have a Whirlpool RBD305PDT11 Double-Oven with a "Self-Clean" feature.

Inevitably, my bride decided that she would "clean" the oven. She set the controls and let it go. At the end of this procedure, I noticed that the electronic control board no longer showed the time or any other lights. So, I checked it out and found that the oven was ENTIRELY non-functional. Virtually nothing would work.

Since this oven is hard-wired, I turned off the fuse and let it sit for few minutes (these things are just computers, so I thought that I would "reboot" the whole thing). This did nothing.

Then, with the help of the internet (thank you, "Fixya"), I found out that this model of Whirlpool oven (and many others of different brand names) seems to have this sort of problem all the time.

It turns out that the physical act of using the "Self-Clean" feature, with its very high heat, blows a few "Thermal Fuses" that are one-use only and cannot be reset. They must be replaced.

First, be sure to turn off the power to the oven BEFORE doing anything. I did this and then took the oven out of the wall enclosure so I could get to the back of the unit. For sake of brevity, I will not go over the procedure to take the oven out of the wall, but those instructions can be found on the internet. Several metal screws hold the sheet metal covering on the top and bottom. Note: This has happened to me twice now (my bride used the "Self Clean" feature without my knowledge) and I have found that the lower Thermal Fuse has NOT blown either time, but the top one has blown both times.

On this unit, the "Oven Shutdown Thermal Fuse" (part number 4451442 costing about $40) is attached with two screws and is located on the upper left section (picture attached below). It is very easy to take the two wire leads off and remove the two screws holding it in place. You can then check this item with a Multimeter to see if the fuse is working. I won't go over the Multimeter instructions, but, you are looking for "Continuity". If you have continuity (electricity will flow), the fuse is good. If you do not have continuity, the fuse is bad.

The first time that this happened (about 5 years ago), the control panel still had lights on and was issuing "error codes" specific to this brand of oven (I don't remember the codes...F1 or something) and the only problem was the fuse as discussed above.

However, the second time that this happened, as I mentioned earlier, the control panel was blank also. So, I had to look for the "Control Panel Thermal Fuse" also. This fuse can be accessed from the FRONT and is behind the control panel. In this unit, that part number is 4451042 and costs about $20. This item is sheathed in clear plastic with a "bullet-looking" thing inside of the plastic. It is very easy to pull this fuse out and check it for continuity to see if it is in working order. Continuity (electricity can flow from one side to the other), and the fuse is good. No continuity, and the fuse is bad. Again, you can check the continuity with a Multimeter. In the second instance of this happening, this fuse was bad also (that is why the control panel had no lights or error codes or anything).

Once I replaced these fuses, the control panel came back, the oven would then respond and worked just fine. If I was to guess, I would say that the cabinet that the oven is installed into is too tight of a space and the temperature just gets way too hot and the fuses blow. This is just a thought, but maybe a fan set to blow at the unit when attempting the cleaning process would help keep the unit somewhat cooler on the outside. But then, at $60 to fix and all of the hassle involved, I am NOT willing try this just to see if it helps!

Just to get in a rant....How a company can sell a unit with a feature of "Self Cleaning" that, when used exactly per the instructions, will render the unit completely useless is WAY beyond me. oven-not-heating-up-after-using-self-m2kgk0sj4irmtvrbwm3x5vdv-1-1.jpg oven-not-heating-up-after-using-self-m2kgk0sj4irmtvrbwm3x5vdv-1-3.jpg

I was using the Self Clean on the oven after a couple of hours I got an error message E1 and F5 - and the oven door is locked. I have no idea what that means or how to get the door open again. I tried...


Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
Ok before i get into the error codes just a few words here about the self cleaning feature
This the feature that is the most harsh on these ovens due to the extremly high temperatures that is produced then this can and will cause serious problems if not done correctly
I know that people like this feature but i highly suggest that if you are going to use it please try to get the oven as clean as possiable before using this feature this helps the cleaning cycle tremendously ok?
Now for the error code
the e1 error dode is due to the door being locked so to repair this you need to unplug the oven and leave it sit for at least 1 hour this allows for the internal reset feature to reset the oven controle
after the hour is over plug it back in and in 1 to 5 min you may hear a audiable beep or click if so simply press the cancel button and attempt to open the door if so great you should be ok
Now for the bad one
The F5 code is due to the oven control sensing the extreem heat during self cleaning
and sensing that the controls are not controlling the temperature during cleaning which is a bad thing this can and will cause the control board to fail and once again due to the excessive heat
So hopefully once the oven has been unplugged for the hour and reset you should be allright but if not than you do have a bigger problem meaning that your controle board is shot ok?
Please keep me posted on how this is going so i can send you more information on this
Best regards Mike

My frigidaire gas range has a F90 on it when I tried the self cleaning oven feature


F90 Maximum oven door unlock time exceeded.
F91 Maximum oven door unlock attempts exceeded.
F92 Maximum oven door open time exceeded.
F93 Maximum oven door lock time exceeded.
F94 Maximum oven door lock attempts exceeded.


1. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Check the wiring between EOC & Lock Motor Micro Switch.

2. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Replace the Motor Door Latch assembly if necessary.

3. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Check for binding of the Latch Cam, Lock Motor Rod & Lock Motor Cam.

4. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Check to see if Lock Motor Coil is open. If open, replace Lock Motor Assembly.

5. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Lock Motor continuously runs - if Micro Switch is open, replace Lock Motor Assembly.

6. (F92, 93 & 94) Check oven door Light Switch - if open, replace Switch.

7. If all situations above do not solve problem, replace EOC.


F90 is a door lock code, Try this...
unplug the range.
wait 1 minute.
turn the range back on,
then while holding in on the oven door.
start another self clean.
wait 2 minutes.
then cancel the self clean.

do not release the door until the door lock light goes out.

Advise use of self clean feature on kenmore self clean oven 30''


If there is an up and down arrow on the control panel, you need to press the clean button first and then choose clean time with the up and down arrow. Be sure to remove the racks, if left in the oven they will be blackened by the extreme heat. Clean them separately with oven cleaner. Place them on newspaper and spray them.

GE Double Oven doors locked and circuit not responding


Hi, well this is a brain tester!! I think you need really to look at this in a simple way. Check to see where the door lock wires come from first? Find where the mains power comes into? then if it goes directly to the main control board then check to see if there is any power getting through the board to the otherside where the wires disapear into the cooker. I would consider checking the control board for any signs of burn damage and then look at the clock unit to as these are normally the main components in the cooker that will stop it from working.
Good luck,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Dead Whirlpool Double Oven


This happened to us the first time we used the self-cleaning feature. The repairman said we had to replace the whole electronic panel -- but when he put in the new panel it didn't work either. It turned out he just needed to replace the oven shutdown thermal fuse I believe. We finally got up enough courage to try the self-cleaning again and the exact thing happened. The door is locked and the electronic panel is dead again. So when we get it fixed we will never use the self-clean again.

Our GE Profile JTP18 keeps flashing "door lock" since we ran a self clean


most of the time a simple fix.... http://www.geappliances.com/search/fast/infobase/10004586.htm
you have to trick the door lock mech into cycling through the cleaning process (takes about 20 seconds)
Print Range - “LOCKED DOOR” flashes in the display

If “LOCKED DOOR” is flashing in the display of your range or oven, and the self-clean cycle has not been selected, follow the steps below to reset your control:

Motorized Switch
    1. With the door open, locate the door jamb switch on the face of the oven. It will look like a small black post or dowel.
    2. Push it in until the oven cavity light goes off, indicating that the oven believes the door is closed.
    3. While you hold the door jamb switch in this position, complete the following steps.
    4. Press the Clean pad, wait 10 seconds.
    5. When the cycle initiates, press the clear/off or cancel pad immediately to cancel it.
    6. Wait 10 seconds for the display to clear.
    7. The door should unlock and there should not be a need for service.
Manual Switch
    1. Press the Clean pad.
    2. Close the door.
    3. Slide the latch to lock the door.
    4. Hit the cancel button immediately.
    5. Unlock the door.
If the above does not correct the situation, a service technician will need to check your cooking product. To obtain in or out of warranty repair on Major Appliances, you may call 1-800-GE-CARES (800-432-2737) or schedule service online.
