You can try holding the clean button until it unlocks (varies with version)... Otherwise accessing from the back and manual manipulating the locking motor is another option.

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 .

    How to unlock the hinge on an Ariston Oven Door with door off


    To Unlock the hinge on an Ariston Oven Door

    Lay the oven door flat on the worktop with the inner door upwards and the locked hinge facing you.


    With a pair of pliers and a good grip on the hinge, force the locked hinge towards you (by pulling it open towards you) and keep it in position by flipping the U piece over.


    Fitting the Oven Door

    Fit the door to the oven with the metal receivers in the slots on the oven.


    Once the receivers are in the slot, fully open the door (in a downward position).


    Flip the U shaped pieces over to lock the hinges.

    My oven is in lock mode after i had cleaned it. I can't open it now and the lock light is on.


    Control panel and oven door lock
    The oven door and controls can be locked to avoid unintended use of the oven. The oven doors and controls cannot be locked if the oven is in use, or the oven temperature is 400°F (205°C) or above. The current time of day will remain in the display when the controls and oven doors are locked.
    To lock the control panel and both oven doors:
    1. Press and release Cancel.
    2. Press and hold upper oven Cancel and Cook & Hold for 3 seconds. “Off” appears in the display and “Lock” flashes while the controls and oven doors lock. Both oven doors lock. “Lock” remains lit in the display.
    To unlock the control panel and both oven doors:
    1. Press and hold upper oven Cancel and Cook & Hold for 3 seconds. “Off” disappears from the display and “Lock” flashes while the controls and oven doors unlock.

    Oven Door Locked


    the oven door does lock during self clean, otherwise it will not work. however, the door is supposed to unlock after the oven has cooled. if it is still locked, turn the oven to self clean and wait about a minute and then hit cancel and see if the door unlocks. if not, there may be a probelm with the door lock mechanism.
