Hi,

Cooling time has elapsed so this problem will occur.
Try these steps to solve the issue:

1)Unplug the unit or shut off the circuit breaker for 10 minutes. Plug the unit back in.Set the clock and gently try moving the door lock lever try Set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for 15 minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever (is so equipped) or opening the door.

2) Set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for 15 minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever try opening the door.

If still the problem persist you have to manually open the lock.
There is three types of lock that will occur.These locks
1)Heat sensitive lock
2)Motor controls the lock
3)Solenoid lock

Solenoid lock is located at the back of the range.Remove the rear panel.
Solenoid coil Failure will cause the unit to lock.Do continuity testing on the solenoid coil and check its working.
A motorized or heat sensitive style lock will usually be located beneath the cook top on free standing ranges. The cook top would usually need to be lifted to access the locking mechanism.If the motor controls the lock then do continuity testing on the motor coil.and replace the motor accordingly.

post a comment for further assistance.
Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

After selfcleaning tried to bake put when you push the bake button it says to unlock door, however door is already unlocked and open


During self clean the oven controller locks the door to ensure one does not accidentally open the door and get insured due to high temperature. The door lock mechanism is unlocked once the temperature comes to normal when self clean is complete. In your case the controller is still sensing high temperature but the door lock mechanism has been released. This could mean the controller is detecting incorrect signal. Try to turn the mains power to oven off and back on. If this does not make a difference then you need to check the temperature sensor or worst the controller needs to be checked.
As I do not have the model number of the oven it is hard to give further diagnostic information.

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.

My oven door will not unlock after cleaning


It will take some time for it to unlock. The lock after self cleaning is controlled by temp. The temps during self cleaning are over 900 degrees and after self cleaning it will take several hours before the oven lock will release. Don't try to force. If after 3 hours it has not unlocked you can try disconnecting power for 2 minutes then reconnecting to activate the self cleaning motor assembly. Good luck and thanks for using Fixya

Self cleaning oven won't unlock after cycle is complete


Unplug it for about 30 minutes, plug it back in and see if it unlocks. If not, then the latch, interlocking microswitch or control board is faulty. Also look for any bad connections (make suer the power is off before you start wiggling connections).
