    I have self cleaned my oven also, and the message pad reads an error; my door will not go off of lock mode. This oven is no more than 1 year and feel that this should not be a problem. I have tried to press the cancel button, the heating element starts up on the top side of the inside of the oven; after a couple of minutes the pad reads cleaning over, but the door will not unlock. I sure would like to bake in this oven, since we just bought the house that as stated earlier is not even a year old.

    While roasting at 400 degrees, my built in Whirlpool went into cleaning mode, and would not turn off! We shut off the breaker and waited a couple of hours for it to cool. We got the door opened by setting the clock and pushing the" timer off "and "oven off" buttons. BUT the top burners (the broiler mode) will not turn off....so we had to shut off the breaker again....and after I throw both the roast and the casserole = pans away, I'll call a repair guy. FYI the oven is less than 5 yrs old.

  • barnabas75 Apr 27, 2009

    After the self-cleaning cycle on our double oven the top door would not unlock and the face information on the control panel went off. I flipped the house breaker to the oven but nothing happened. Could there be a built-in fuse in the oven system that has blown and if so, where is it and how do you get to it?

F7 shows instead of door lock


This happens with a lot of ovens. It's because the mechanism that locks the door is stuck. When the door doesn't lock you can't do a self clean. They don't want you to be able to open the door while the oven is 800 degrees? or so. Look just below the little button that gets pushed in when the door is closed, upper left, and you should see a vertical slot. This is where a little lever comes out and grabs the slot on the door. There is a microswitch inside that tells the oven if the lever has come out or not. Your lever is stuck.
You can test this in a totally dangerous way by opening the door, holding in the button, and turning on the self cleaning. If everything is correct you will see the lever come out to grab and lock the door, but your's won't because it's stuck. Jiggle it or push on it or pull on it with needle nosed pliers. It frees up pretty easily. But when it does, the oven will go into self clean, which you don't want it to do with the door open, so turn it off, close the door and try again. It should work fine.

Cant unlock oven door


Hi, unplug the unit or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Plug the unit back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and gently try moving the door lock lever (is so equipped) or opening the door. Set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for 15 minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever (is so equipped) or opening the door. If these procedures fail to correct the condition, the lock must usually be accessed and moved manually to open the door.
*Note: Some model ovens require the oven door to be manually unlatched before the controls are returned to the OFF position or else the door may not be able to be unlocked. Check the owner's manual for proper operating procedures.

Kenmore oven locked


Hello dktshopping,
I know you probable don't want to hear this but in you circumstance, I think you would be better off to contact a repair professional. Those oven door locks are meant to keep the door from opening during the oven's self-cleaning cycle. They are both mechanically and temperature controlled so that the door can not be opened when the oven is 950 degrees. It sounds to me as though something is not releasing to allowing the locking mechanisim to disengage from the door even though the lever is in the unlock position. The unit will probably have to be taken apaprt to remedy the problem. Good luck.
