While cleaning oven I lifted bottom element heard a pop. Now neither the stove or oven will not come on. The indicator lights do not light up either.


The "pop" was the sound of the heating element shorting to ground so naturally nothing works now.

I have a modern maid double wall oven (gas). I set it to clean last night (at 3:00AM). It is now 12:PM the next day and it can't unlock it. What should I do?


Try turning the main power off to the house for 5 mins and turn it back on see if that reset your oven.

Blinking auto self clean light


There is probably a switch attached to the oven locking mechanism that need to be replaced. I had a similar problem on my GE electric oven and it worked for me.

Oven lock light


Oven lock is usually associated with oven cleaning. Last owner probably tried to clean the oven for you and didn't finish the cycle. Either finish cycle or turn it off (if possible).

Need help unlock oven after self cleaning jenn air jjw9527


The temperature setting must be set on "Cleaning" and the oven cooking dial to "Clean"; otherwise the door will not open and forcing will damage the mechanism. Also, before the door will open, the internal temperature must drop to a safe level and a red "cleaning" light must go off, after the temperature drops inside the oven.

I can't stop cleaning!!!


I had the same problem. The issue is in the electric switch that tells the oven whether the door lock is latched. If the switch gets stuck in the "clean" position, even though the lock is released, the oven will not run the regular cycles. If you wiggle the lock levr a few times it may free the switch, otherwise you'll have to raise the cooktop, and there is a metal cover over the mechanism. Remove the 2 screws holding the switch (unplug the power first) and you should be able to un-stick it. Reassemble and you're good to go, at least until you need to run the cleaning cycle again...

Self clean light blinks, oven does not work


You were right. The locking mechanism switch somehow became jammed and the oven thought the door was locked, even though I could open the door. I didn't know if I was supposed to take the top off and moving the lever back and forth did not help. Finally I turned the oven on and just kind of jiggled the latch in the unlocked position. I kind of moved it back and forth furiously and the cleaning light stopped blinking and the oven light came on. I'm glad it is working now, but I will be manually cleaning my oven from now on! Thanks for your help.
