Gas range oven door with not open


Your self cleaning cycle is running. When self cleaning is running the door is automatically locked and will not unlock until the self cleaning cycle completes or self cleaning is turned off. You should be able to just turn off the self cleaning cycle and the door will unlock. Do not try to pry open the oven door. You will just damage the door and/or the catch.

Frigidaire self clean oven: how long will it stay on and can I turn it off before it is finished cleaning? Freestanding stove is 39' width


you can set the amount of time for self clean that you want, you can also turn it off during mid cycle, but if oven is hot it will not unlock the door til it is cooled down enough, maybe 20 min to 1/2 hr. It is a safety pre-caution.

Ran the self cleaning cycle on my Kithen Aid electric range and once the cycle finished the touch pad would not unlock, the oven door unlocked but none of the touch pad will work except for the the button...


This is a common problem with all self cleanig ranges. The 1200+ degree heat will sometimes leak up into the control panel and damage components. Try turning the power off first for 30 minutes and see if the control resets itself. If it doesn't have directions on the panel, then check you owners manual to see if their is a certain procedure you use to unlock your contols. If none of these work you will need to have a technician come out to diagnose your elecronic range contol or you touch pad. Good Luck Appliance Specialists

Oven door locked and will not unlock


hi friend,
step 1
Look for a manual lever to unlock the oven. If there is one, it will probably swing back and forth horizontally, just below the upper edge of the oven door.
  • Step 2 Swing the locking lever, if one is present, all the way to the left. This should unlock the oven. If there is no manual lever to unlock the oven, it may be unlocked using push-button controls.
  • Step 3 Check to see if the oven is in a self-cleaning cycle, or has just completed a self-cleaning cycle. If so, the door will unlock automatically once the oven has finished the cleaning cycle and cooled completely, which may take several hours. You cannot unlock the oven before it has cooled.
  • Step 4 Unlock the "Clean/Off" button. Depending on the brand and model of your oven, the button may display both of these designations or just one. If your oven door is locked, but the oven is not warm and is not in a cleaning cycle, unlock it by pressing and holding the "Clean/Off" button.

    How do I set the oven to self clean


    The oven door must be closed and all controls set correctly for the cycle to work properly. After a Clean Cycle You may notice some white ash in the oven. Wipe it up with a damp cloth after the oven cools. If white spots remain, remove them with a soap- filled scouring pad and rinse thoroughly with a vinegar and water mixture. These deposits are usually a salt residue that cannot be removed by the clean cycle. If the oven is not clean after one clean cycle, repeat the cycle.
    You cannot set the oven for cooking until
    the oven is cool enough for the door to unlock.
    While the oven is self-cleaning, you can
    touch the TIMER/CLOCK pad to display the time of day.
    To return to the clean
    countdown, touch the COOKING TIME pad.
    If the shelves become hard to slide,
    apply a small amount of vegetable oil or cooking oil to a paper towel and wipe the edges of the oven shelves with the paper towel.

    Using the self-cleaning oven.

    How to Delay the Start of Cleaning

    Make sure the clock shows the correct time of day. If your model has a latch, latch the door. Touch the SELF CLEAN pad. Using the + or or the number pads, enter the desired clean time. Touch the DELAY START pad. The earliest start time you can set will appear in the display. Using the + or or the number pads, enter the time of day you want the clean cycle to start. Touch the START pad. On models without a door latch, the door locks automatically. The display will show the start time. It will not be possible to open the oven door until the temperature drops below the lock temperature and the LOCKED DOOR light goes off. The oven shuts off automatically when the clean cycle is complete. When the LOCKED DOOR light is off, slide the latch handle to the left as far as it will go and open the door. If your range does not have a latch, the door will unlock automatically. n The words LOCK DOOR will flash and the oven control will signal if you set the clean cycle and forget to close the oven door or forget to latch the door on models with a latch. n To stop a clean cycle, touch the CLEAR/OFF pad. When the LOCKED DOOR light goes off indicating the oven has cooled below the locking temperature, unlatch the door (on models with a latch) and open the door.

    How does self clean work


    MOST SELF-CLEAN OVENS RAISE THE TEMPERATURE IN THE OVEN TO ABOUT 850 DEGREES AND BURN EVERYTHING TO A POWDER. THAT IS WHY THERE IS A SPECIAL DOOR GASKET AND IMPROVED INSULATION AROUND THE OVEN LINER. THE AVERAGE CLEAN CYCLE
    TAKES 3 HOURS TO COMPLETE. YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO
    LOCK THE OVEN DOOR (SOME MODELS LOCK THE DOOR
    AUTOMATICALLY) SELECT SELF-CLEAN, AND START.
    OLDER MODELS WITH A MECHANICAL TIMER AND CLOCK REQUIRE SETTING THE START AND STOP TIME.
