Self cleaning oven


Pheo,
Turn Breaker/Fuse for the stove, your electrical panel, “OFF” and then “ON”, wait 20 - 30 seconds and the door should unlock.
It may be that the temp sensor is going out and you'll need to have that looked at soon.

Oven will not unlock after self cleaning


User manual says that the oven must cool off. I am sure this is not the case. Try starting the oven self clean function, and then clear/off to stop the function. Since the oven is cool, perhaps the oven will unlock.

Finally, you could try turning off the circuit breaker and then back on to see if it unlocks - unfortunately you will have to reprogram everything. All else fails, call a technician.

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.

Lock would not open after cleaning process has been canceled, oven is still hot


Don't open or try to open the oven door, until it has cooled down completely. The oven heats to a very hot temperature, usually 800 to 900 degrees. The door locks itself once it gets to a certain temperature, and will not allow the door to be opened until it cools below a certain temperature. On some units, this can take hours to cool down enough to unlock. If you try to force it before the cooldown is complete, it usually results in a repair call. If it still will not unlock when it is cool, turn your power to the oven off for 20 minutes, then turn on and reset your oven controls. Sometimes you have to put the oven back into the self-cleaning cycle, and then cancel it immediately to cycle the oven door lock. If it still won't unlock, call a repair company out to service this. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Kitchenaid superba oven stovetop oven door will not open after se


When the oven goes into clean mode the door is automatically locked as a safety feature. I would put it back into clean mode again, let it clean for a while and then hopefully when it cools down the door will open. good luck .

OVEN DOOR WILL NOT UNLOCK AND NO INDICATORS ARE FLASHING


Yes, one thing you can try is to use a thin piece of strong metal and try to slide the latch over to open the door. You may have to shake the door as you do this. I have seen this done with a credit card. Similar to opening a door that is locked. Let me know how that does. One last ditch effort is to put the oven in self clean mode and let it run it cycle and maybe it will send a message to open the doot at the completion of it's cycle.

Jenn-Air stove locked


After the lock indicator light goes out, move the door lock lever to the left. The oven door can now be opened. Turn the selector and temperature knobs from clean to off AFTER THE DOOR IS UNLOCKED. If the temperature knob is turned to off BEFORE the door is unlocked, the door will not open. Forcing the lock will damage the lock mechanism. If this should happen, return the temperature knob back to CLEAN, unlock the door, THEN turn the temperature knob off.
