Most oven door locks are set at a specific temp to lock and unlock, usually between 180 and 220 degrees. If the door has locked and then unlocked ok there is not a fault it is a safety feature. If it has locked and has stayed locked then you may have a problem with the stat linked to the lock mechanism or the mechanism itself. If it is still working ok then there isn't a problem.
Hope this helps.

How do I lock door for self cleaning


Some ovens have a latch handle between the top of the door and the actual range top that you have to push sideways to lock. May also be a lock button you have to push in while moving the latch handle.
If you don't see the latch handle, The lock system may be the hidden type that should lock automatically when set to clean. Once the oven is set properly for clean, a motor will latch the door by itself. After the oven gets close to clean temperature, the latch gets locked out and the door will not open until the clean cycle is complete and oven cools down to normal room temperature again. This is a safety feature so you can't open the door while the oven is at clean temp (about 850 degrees). Hope this explains enough. If door never auto latches, could be a problem with the latch/lock system and motor.

How do I clean the electrolux oven? It won't start after i take the racks out


As you did not specify the exact model I assume that this is a self-cleaning oven, in other words with pyrolytic cleaning. It has a microswitch which is activated by removing the racks and just because that you can not run the pyrolytic cleaning otherwise racks would be destroyed. Do not forget that the temperature during pyrolytic cleaning is app. 500 degrees Celsius. For that reasons the oven door is locked when temperature increasing to app. 300 degrees and unlocked when the temperature decreasing to the app. 200 degrees. It is clear that when you remove the racks only program that you can run is pyrolytic cleaning.

Oven locks after self cleaning After self cleaning the panel indicates locked


I believe they can stay "Locked" for up to 3/4 Hours. See they heat up to like 900 Degrees, to "Clean" the oven... It stays locked until the oven "Thinks" it is "Safe" to be opened.

Model GBS307PDQ5: Oven preheated to 425 degrees.


F3 usually means, that the oven temp. sensor is bad and one need to replace it.
The fact, that it's not heating tells me, the fuse in the back also needs to be replaced (requires pulling out).

When baking my oven door is not locked is it supposed to be?and if so how do we lock it.


The locking of the oven door is a safety feature used only during automatic self cleaning cycle, this is because temperatures during the self clean cycle can reach upwards of 600+ degrees creating a dangerous situation if the door was opened, it will remain locked after the self cleaning cycle is complete until the oven interior temperature is below 100 degrees. So no the door is not normally locked during the bake cycle. Good luck !

My jenn-air self-cleaning electronic wall oven model w131 is heating up very slowly. It took 1.5 hours to get to 175 degrees.


One of the 2 hot wires is out. Flip (hard) the oven circuit breaker to the off position, and then back on. If it did not help - verify 220-240v between the two hot wires on the terminal block behind the electronic control. If there is less - call electrician.

Oven won't work after cleaning


Molly,
"Auto Clean" means that the control thinks the door is locked. If you can open the door, it's obviously not locked. You can try turning the power off at the breaker. Leave it off for 20 minutes or so. See if this resets the control. If not, the high temps in "auto clean" may have fried one of the monitor switches on the door latch.
Let us know what happens.

How can i quit cleaning oven?


During the self clean cycle, oven temp will exceed 900 degrees F. At these temps, if you opened the door, the food inside would immediately catch on fire when the supply of oxygen hit it. When you turn your self clean cycle off, the oven door will remain locked until the internal temp drop below aprox. 550 degrees F for your safety. Once the oven cool below this temp, you will be able to start using the bake or broil again. This should be a Fix-Ya for your oven.
