Oven door won't close


if you look around under the handle or under the top of the stove on the front there should be thin lever. This lever is designed to lock the oven door closed tightly when you are activating the self cleaning oven feature. It is likely that someone accidentally lock the lever while the door to the oven was open. Simply find that locking lever return it to the unlocked position and your door should shut fine.

F7 shows instead of door lock


This happens with a lot of ovens. It's because the mechanism that locks the door is stuck. When the door doesn't lock you can't do a self clean. They don't want you to be able to open the door while the oven is 800 degrees? or so. Look just below the little button that gets pushed in when the door is closed, upper left, and you should see a vertical slot. This is where a little lever comes out and grabs the slot on the door. There is a microswitch inside that tells the oven if the lever has come out or not. Your lever is stuck.
You can test this in a totally dangerous way by opening the door, holding in the button, and turning on the self cleaning. If everything is correct you will see the lever come out to grab and lock the door, but your's won't because it's stuck. Jiggle it or push on it or pull on it with needle nosed pliers. It frees up pretty easily. But when it does, the oven will go into self clean, which you don't want it to do with the door open, so turn it off, close the door and try again. It should work fine.

I was cleaning my oven and one of my kids opened the doore before it was finished and then pushed the cleaning button again but did not shut the over door so the lock is up on the door and it won't shut. ...


unplug unit. remove rear cover, see if latch motor has made it to rest position. microswitch may be holding power off to latch. a slight turn may be all you need to reset latch.
hope this helps

Dacor CPO230, can't get lock to engage for self cleaning. I follow step clean symbolcomes up door lock moves into locked position then beeping starts and the word door flashes and the lock opens up.


For some reason the oven thinks you have a door that is not shut all of the way. Check the locking slot to make sure that there are no obstructions. Make sure that you are only doing one oven at a time, and not trying to cook in the other. Make sure you have no racks in the oven. Try pushing lightly on the door when the lock engages. For some reason your lock isn't engaging fully and that's why door is flashing. Good Luck
Below is from the owners manual for your oven.

Oven does not self-clean Door not shut tight Check for obstructions. Close door tightly
Oven set for delay timed cleaning Oven will start to self-clean at preset time.
Press CANCEL/SECURE to return to
normal operation
Double ovens only: Other oven is on. Turn off other oven.

Replace door hinges


I had exactly the same problem until tonight!
I had nothing to lose so solved it by sheer brute force!
The problem is with the hinges that the door clips into they seem to get very loose. If you can manage to crimp them against metal they won't move and your door will shut properly. This is how I did it.

1. There are a couple of locks (levers) on each hinge open them up and then lift off the door
2. Ensure that there is nothing wrong with the door brackets, tighten the screws on them to ensure they don't move.
3. Fit the door back on to the hinges and with the levers still open(towards the door) push the door against the hinges which bends them tight in position (don't push too hard otherwise you will completely bend the bracket out of shape you just need to do it enough to crimp it in to place and prevent it from moving)
4. Now open the door, push the levers back closed against the hinges and then shut the door. Hopefully it will be a much tighter fit.

Good luck!
