Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya:
Ok on this oven it has a internal reset feature that will trip sometimes when in the self clean mode :
To fix this here is what you need to do
First unplug the oven from the wall or if it is hard wired find the breaker for this oven and trip it next leave it for 1 hr to allow for the internal reset feature to reactivate after the hour is up plug in the power back to the oven you may hear a audible click if so simply press cancel and you are ready to go the door should now open and you can resume normal operations
Please note soemtimes this audiable click can take 5 min after the power is restored so please be patient ok
Hope this is very helpful for you
Please dont forget to rate the solution i have provided it helps get better answers for our customers
Best regards michael

How do i lock the self cleaning ge oven door when i put it on self clean


If you have a self cleaning oven, the door will lock automatically as the self cleaning begins. Give it some time ,it will happen. When cleaning is done it will take a while for the door to unlock. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Gas range oven door with not open


Your self cleaning cycle is running. When self cleaning is running the door is automatically locked and will not unlock until the self cleaning cycle completes or self cleaning is turned off. You should be able to just turn off the self cleaning cycle and the door will unlock. Do not try to pry open the oven door. You will just damage the door and/or the catch.

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.

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.

Cant unlock self clean oven door


Door lock motor has probably failed.....Self clean on many ovens can be a self destruct mode. Door latch motors, sensor probes and even the electronic controls can be destroyed by this operation. Suggest oven cleaner method.
