I accidentally hit clean instead of clear. I got the clean function to stop before it inciderated my bread, however I can't get the oven door open. I cut off power to the stove for 5 minutes hoping for reset. Nope. I did hit clear and many combinations of buttons.

If you've interrupted the clean cycle or have accidentally set the clean
cycle with the oven door open, the latch may have engaged and now the door can't
be closed because it will hit the latch. There may be a door activated switch on the front face of the oven. In this case you may need to manually
press that door switch with your finger while at the same time canceling the
clean cycle to get the latch to retract so the door can close fully again.
The board is either confused and you can just unplug this unit and let it sit for 30 minutes then plug in and reset. its possible, it will be okay....or did you actually clean the oven and the door opens , but lock light is lit? if this is the case and it cleaned, and you can open the door. I'dsay you have a problem in door latch to door light switch causing this condition
I had the same problem on my Kenmore Electric Range. Door would not unlock. Tried pressing "Off" for multiple seconds, but still would not unlock. No error codes. Clock was displaying normally. Finally decided to try running it thru the self cleaning operation to get it to cycle thru locking and unlocking the door. When I started self clean, the door automatically went thru the auto lock and "locked" appeared in the display. I then hit "Off" to clear it and stop the cleaning cycle. The door then unlocked as normal!
what do you mean locked accidently if if the door is locked and 3hrs is on the display hit start then cancel if the door showes locked and is not (you can still open the door)push in on the door switch by hand and push cancel let me know
On my Frigidaire electric range with flat screen front controls, when the "Clean" control was accidentally pushed and the door locked, I could not unlock the door by cutting power, by running the clean mode for 30 seconds then pushing "Clear", or by hitting any button. What opened the door was holding down the "Clear" button for 30 seconds until the range started beeping and code "F11" read on the led. This worked. Good luck with yours.
I let the door stay open, hold the switch closed with my finger, activated self clean. Let it run for a minute then hit cancel, the stove heating element shut off and the locked door blinked for 5 seconds then finally stopped. Back to normal.
I have a Tappan double oven range. An older model #316065301
How do I operate the cleaning cycle? I set the start and stop times, Locked the door and switched to clean. The clean light comes on but it doesn't heat up much at all. Never locks. I have misplaced my instructions manual.
