    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 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?

My kenmore W&R locked to start the cleaning process and never turned on, but now won't open. It's been 4 hours.

Verify that the Whirlpool oven is connected to its power source. The oven may sometimes lock down if experiencing a power surge or similar electrical problems. Additionally, check that a fuse hasn't been blown in your home's fuse box. Some older homes may not have the proper wiring to support a high-powered appliance such as a Whirlpool oven. If you are not sure if your wiring is sufficient, consult a local electrician.
  • Check to see if the Whirlpool oven's Control Lock has been turned on, a safety mechanism designed to lock the oven and disable its keypad and display controls. A padlock symbol will be displayed in the corner of the Whirlpool oven's front display panel if it is locked. The oven will not unlock itself on its own even if it is disconnected from its power source. To disable, press and hold the "3" button on the keypad for five seconds until the padlock icon disappears.
  • See if the Whirlpool oven is engaged in its self-cleaning cycle. During the self-cleaning process, the stove will lock its front door and will flash "OVEN LOCKED" on its front display. This is to prevent users from accidentally opening the oven and burning themselves during the high-heat segment in the cleaning process. If you must open the oven, first stop the process by pressing and holding the "OFF/CANCEL" button on the stove's control panel. If the oven remains locked, wait for the internal temperatures to decrease. The locking mechanism is temperature controlled and will not unlock until internal temperatures have cooled.
  • Contact Whirlpool's service department if your Whirlpool oven remains locked and you cannot troubleshoot it or open it. All Whirlpool self-cleaning ovens are covered for five years after the original purchase date. Call the warranty team for assistance by dialing toll-free (800) 253-1301 in the United States, or (800) 807-6777 in Canada. Be prepared to give the oven's model number and purchase date

    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.

    Oven shut down during Self-cleaning

    tde, sounds like your thermal fuse (TC0) opened on the back side of the oven. If this opens, it will shut the oven down. This happens alot during self cleaning on built ins. Sometimes I have to re-route the tco to a different area to prevent this from happening. Your part number is 4451442. You will have to pull the oven out far enough to remove the back paneling and replace the back.
