    It wasn't forced open but accidently pushed clean pad and immediatly opened. It then locked itself. Pushing the clear button does not unlock the door.

    SOME RANGES ARE DESIGNED TO LOCK IF THE CONTROL SENSES A TEMPERATURE
    EXTREME. IF THERE IS A FAILURE OF THE SENSOR THAT MAKES THE CONTROL
    THINK THE TEMP IS UP, IT WILL LOCK THE DOOR TO PREVENT INJURY. REMOVE
    THE BACK PANEL AND FIND THE OVEN SENSOR LEADS COMING OUT THE BACK OF
    THE OVEN. DISCONNECT THE SENSOR AND CHECK THE RESISTANCE. AT ROOM TEMP
    IT SHOULD BE SOMEWHERE AROUND 1084 OHMS. IF IT IS NOT CLOSE,

    THE SENSOR IS BAD. PLUG IN A NEW SENSOR AT THAT CONNECTOR AND THE DOOR
    SHOULD UNLOCK. THEN GET INSIDE THE OVEN, REMOVE THE OLD SENSOR, AND
    REPLACE IT WITH THE ONE PLUGGED IN.

    Or try these:

    1. Unplug the oven from the AC source, and turn off the circuit breaker. Wait about 5 minutes and turn on the breaker and plug in the oven.

    2. Open door with the oven on, push in on the door switch and hold it. Hit clean while
    holding the switch and count to ten and release the swith. Turn the circuit breaker off for about 20 seconds and turn it on again.

    3. Otherwise, with the breaker on, tap the door latch with a hammer (lightly!) to the left. Hopefully, it should slowly move to the left and resolve the issue.

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.

Amana EvenAir Convection Plus Self Cleaning Oven will not unlock.


My oven was locked and would not open. No lock light was on but the oven was clearly locked. F9 error when I hit certain buttons.

Try this. I unplugged the oven for about 5 minutes. Plugged back in. A LOCK light came on. Held down "Oven Cancel" for a few seconds. Door opened and lock light went off. No more F9 error when I hit those buttons.

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.

"Door Locked" flashing on GE Oven JTP15 - can't unlock


The problem may very well be in one of the micro switches on the self cleaning motor bracket. These switches control the electrical flow to the heating elements. In the owners manual there is/should be a chart that lists the unlock and safety combinations. This would be your best source of information.
