Oven door is locked out - Sears no help

      1. Step 1 Read the display on the electronic oven controls, where the clock and timer normally appear. If the display reads "CLN" while the "Door Locked" light is on, the Kenmore range is in self-clean mode. When the Kenmore range is in self-clean mode, you must stop the cleaning process before the door will unlock.
      2. Step 2 Stop the self-cleaning process by pressing and holding the "Stop/Clear" button for three seconds. The oven lock should disengage after three seconds. In some cases, a malfunction between the control panel and the locking mechanism prevents the door from unlocking.
      3. Step 3 Hold the light switch for several seconds if the "Stop/Clear" button fails to unlock the range door. Engaging the light switch for several seconds resets the entire locking mechanism and overrides the "Stop/Clear" button.

CFEF372BC2 - Oven Door Locked

I would replace it. IF you unplug it and set it to clean it is a hazard if someone opens it. If the safety feature is working it should not self clean with the motor unplugged anyway.

The oven is locked with the door open. cant figure out how to unlock it so we can use it

Hello - Was the unit in self-clean mode? Try pressing and holding the "Clear/Off" button to stop any operation of the EOC. Do this at the same time while pushing and hold the light switch to the left of the door lock. Usually this will trick the oven into unlocking the door. If it is ineffective, try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and redo the steps. If door continues to maintain locked while open, the unit may possibly have a faulty door latch or a communication problem with the EOC. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

My maytag range model mer5765ras lock is stuck can not operate anything except stove top We turned off electricity it released but as soon as I shut the door it locked Thank

On something like this I recommend setting the control up into a self-cleaning mode. Let the self cleaning cycle run for about 5 minutes then press stop/cancel. This should cause the lock motor to reset the lock switches.

My GE jgbp24 oven is stuck in self-cleaning mode. How can I fix this?

It sounds like the self clean solenoid has locked the door and you will need a service technician to come and release it for you. You will likely need to replace the door locking mechanism.

Oven door stuck on locked!

E1-F5 indicates door lock motor has probably failed.....Self clean on many ovens can be a self destruct mode. Door latch motors, sensor probes and even the electronic controls can be destroyed by this operation. Suggest oven cleaner method next time...

On many freestanding stoves the lock motor is located in the right rear (looking from the front) with a long rod connected to the lock. Remove the motor and unhook the rod from the motor cam. If it is a built-in over, sometimes bending a coat hanger into a hook and sliding from the right side into the lock you can unlock the door.
