Oven door stuck on locked!

Hello! I ran the self-cleaning mechanism on my oven last night and now the door to the oven is stuck on locked. The owners manual says nothing about the error that is on the screen (E1 -F5-) and I can't figure out how to open it up now. The model is kenmore model #665.95781, its about 7 or 8 years old.

    you helped me fix my frigidare oven! but i cannot fiind a place on your website to give you the best "fixya" rating.

    i--like others, had started the clean mode--then realized that i forgot to remove the racks.

    my scheduled is such that i couldn't commit to a repair appointment---so had no oven/broiler for 6 weeks

    info from tech 17 was great--- then 'montanabrand' clarified it for a novice.



    Thank you!!!

E1-F5 indicates 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 next time...

On many freestanding stoves the lock motor is located in the right rear (looking from the front) with a long rod connected to the lock. Remove the motor and unhook the rod from the motor cam. If it is a built-in over, sometimes bending a coat hanger into a hook and sliding from the right side into the lock you can unlock the door.

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.

We used the self cleaning option and now we cannot get the oven door open. The lever is stuck in lock mode. Can you give suggestion?


Hello,

IF you can locate the model number tag (bottom left of door opening) you can look up the manual at www.geappliances.com

The only button on your stove that should make the door lock would be the clean button (self clean model) if that is pressed simply hit the clear/off or cancel key and wait for the door to unlock.

IF the self clean option ran for an hour or so, you will have to wait for the oven to cool down before the lock can unlock (safety feature)


Thank you and thanks for using fixya

    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.

    Need help unlock oven after self cleaning jenn air jjw9527


    The temperature setting must be set on "Cleaning" and the oven cooking dial to "Clean"; otherwise the door will not open and forcing will damage the mechanism. Also, before the door will open, the internal temperature must drop to a safe level and a red "cleaning" light must go off, after the temperature drops inside the oven.

    I can't stop cleaning!!!


    I had the same problem. The issue is in the electric switch that tells the oven whether the door lock is latched. If the switch gets stuck in the "clean" position, even though the lock is released, the oven will not run the regular cycles. If you wiggle the lock levr a few times it may free the switch, otherwise you'll have to raise the cooktop, and there is a metal cover over the mechanism. Remove the 2 screws holding the switch (unplug the power first) and you should be able to un-stick it. Reassemble and you're good to go, at least until you need to run the cleaning cycle again...
