Oven door is locked with food in it how to unlock asap


Hi , Anon !
My name is Ashlynn .
If your oven is locked , here's some ways you can unlock it :
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    But it seems you have food inside so ,
    Press cancel on the cooking cycle , and let it cool to room temperature , and then try to open your oven .

    Used self cleaning process on my oven yesterday and today the oven will not turn on, we keep getting message to unlock the oven door even though it is. What can we do?


    The oven gets extremely hot during the self-cleaning mode... the door switch might have got stuck in locked position, or broken in locked position (to be replaced), let's hope it's just stuck...which you'll need to work the mechanical lock-unlock latching back and forth to hopefully unstick....and if that doesn't work just re-run self-cleaning process but this time let the oven cool completely before unlocking the door. Hope this helps.

    How do i unlock the hindge when door is out


    This is quite tricky to explain, did you lock hinge before removal, if so then should be easy to put back in.
    It is very difficult to unlock hinge once taken from oven and can potentially destroy door glass if you try!
    You can try to unlock but will need some pump pliers, but best not to try unless experienced

    Used the self cleaning cycle 24 hrs. ago, but the oven door will not unlock. We tried to run it through another clean cycle but we recieve an E1 error.


    Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.
    you may have done a panel lock, so try the first solution.

    To Lock/Unlock Control: Before locking, make sure the ovens, Timer and Timed Cooking are off. Press and hold START/ENTER until a single tone sounds and "Loc," a picture of a lock and "START?" will appear on the oven display, about 5 seconds. Repeat to unlock and remove "Loc" from display.

    To Stop Self-Clean any time:
    Press UPPER OFF, LOWER OFF or OFF/CANCEL. If the oven temperature is too high, the door will remain locked. It will not unlock until the oven cools.

    The lock will not release after cleaning


    This is GE's trouble shooting advise:

    Range - Oven Door Won't Unlock After Self Clean

    The Oven Door has been Locked Accidentally:

    • If no food or utensils are in oven, put it into a short self-clean cycle (1-2 hours).


    • If there is food in the oven, let the oven cool to room temperature and try to unlatch the door.


    • With electronic ranges there is a small chance that turning the circuit breaker off for a few minutes and turning it back on can release the door. latch to the "off"


    • Note: Do not force the latch at anytime!

    Door Will Not Unlock After Cleaning:

    On models with mechanical latches:
    • Once the oven is cool after a self-clean cycle (approximately 30-90 minutes), slide the latch over to the left.(Some older models have a latch release button that must be pushed in while sliding the latch over.)
    Note: Some models with oven Set and Temperature knobs must have those knobs set in the Clean position before the latch can be moved to the left. If your door won't unlock, try turning those knobs back to Clean, then slide the latch over.

    If the above suggestions do not work try the following to unlock your door:
    1. Disconnect power to range for 30 seconds.
    2. Reconnect power and see if door will unlatch.
    3. If door does not unlatch, and you do have food in the oven, wait for oven to cool completely and try again. If it still will not open you will need service.
    4. If door does not unlatch, and you do not have food in the oven, set the oven up to clean for 1-2 hours.
    5. Wait approximately 30 minutes and try to unlock the door.
    6. If the door unlocks, the control has reset itself and there should not be any other problems.
    7. If the door will not unlock or if you would like to schedule a service appointment, please contact GE Consumer Service at 1-800-432-2737 or schedule a service appointment on-line.
    Note: Under no circumstances should you ever force the door or latch open.
