Locking Issue Hi. I am having a problem with my range. I was in the middle of cooking and the locking mechanism came on. I opened the door while this was happening so now the door will not shut and the lock will not go back in.

Let me see if I can help you. I see three components that make up the locking mechanism. The 1st is the door latch itself, the 2nd is the linkage that runs from the door latch to the lock motor. The 3rd being the lock motor. When you try to lock it can you hear any clicks or a motor hum? Also have you checked to make sure the reciever is in the open position on the latch to ensure that the latch will function in the correct position? There should also be a spacer just to the right of the latch reciever make sure that it is in place as well. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment me.

You might have a fried ERC. This would mainly affect ovens that have automatic door latching in self clean Check for error code in display. If an error code is given, check against manufacturer’s code explanations in owner’s manual or tech data sheet inside oven control panel. You’ll need to disassemble the oven to get at it.

All the best

There are 3 things you can try and atleast one of them will work.
1)hold in the door button and push broil until the latch makes a 360 degree then the door lock should stop flashing and the oven will work again
2)press and hold the lock button for about 3 seconds.
3)push and hold in on the door switch with the door open and push cancel will reset

Let me know if it worked.

Regards,
Sai.

Mcclary stove


One thermostat (sometimes at the back of the stove) is open/blown or the door locking assembly has failed. To open the door you may remove the back of the stove; take the door locking assembly apart to release the long wire that hooks the door close.
On some models you can see the locking the latching mechanism through a **** in the top front and can play with the mechanisms there to release the door.
Then you can begin to figure why the door latched in the first place.

"Locked Door" flashes after interrupting self clean...


Hi robertkbrown...you may want to try to following steps.....good luck my friend...chris If ?LOC DOOR? is flashing in the display of your range or oven, and the self-clean cycle has not been selected, follow the steps below to reset your control: Motorized Switch 1. With the door open, locate the door jamb switch on the face of the oven. It will look like a small black post or dowel. 2. Push it in until the oven cavity light goes off, indicating that the oven believes the door is closed. 3. While you hold the door jamb switch in this position, complete the following steps. 4. Press the Clean pad, wait 10 seconds. 5. When the cycle initiates, press the clear/off or cancel pad immediately to cancel it. 6. Wait 10 seconds for the display to clear. 7. The door should unlock and there should not be a need for service. Manual Switch 1. Press the Clean pad. 2. Close the door. 3. Slide the latch to lock the door. 4. Hit the cancel button immediately. 5. Unlock the door.

Hi! My LG washing machine is showing a "de" error code. It won't allow water into the drum. Please help


Hi, the error code "dE" signifies a door open error. This may simply be because the door is not all the way closed. This indicates that the washing machine door is not shutting, locking or opening. This means that there is something faulty with the door switch and locking mechanism . You should get this replaced or you may have water where you do not want it, though it could also represent a number of other problems. There may be a faulty door switch, a malfunctioning electrical connection or a damaged gasket.

Cleaned oven door lock wont release, cant cook


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. There is an over-temperature switch built into the electrical panel of the oven. Resetting this switch might solve the issue.

To reset it: Turn off the power. Open the door (if door is locked, turn the power back on and gently try pulling the door every few seconds as the locking mechanism cycles until it is unlocked). Remove the 3 screws below the control panel (screws point upwards, with the head just inside the oven). Pull off the face of the control panel. Let it dangle by the wires so that you have access to the space behind it.

Within the electrical enclosure exposed by removing the control panel, look for a small silver and black device with 2 wires attached to the back. The device is about .5" wide by 1" long and is attached with 2 screws to the sheet metal on the bottom of the electrical enclosure.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Rylee

Oven will not come on to cook, it will come on in cleaning mode


I've seen this problem on my own oven. If yours, like mine, has a door that has a locking mechanism, the catch is most likely stuck in the locked position. The door still closes and the lever still moves (though it may be very stiff).
Take off the screws around the locking plate, manually push the catch to the open position, spray the catch VERY, VERY lightly with WD-40 and dry it thoroughly. Close the oven door and try the lever again.
At this point, it should move freely and your oven should be able to switch between LOCKED/Self-Clean Mode and UNLOCKED/Cook Mode. If it does still get stuck, you'll just has to a) try lubricating the catch a bit more or b) keep a screwdriver handy! ;)

I used my speed clean fixture for the first time today. It ran for 2 hours this morning (9am), but I cannot open the oven door now. The door lock light is off and it should be cool by now. Error code...


I had the same issue when I used the clean feature for the first time. I opened up the back and found the door locking motor in the middle of the range. I ended up taking off the power wires to the door lock switch and motor and tapping the motor a few times. I reconnected the power and the door lock opened. No problems since, but I don't think I will try to automatically clean the oven again!

"Locked Door" flashes after interrupting self clean


Robert, see if you can get it back home by using the test funtion. Kill the power to the oven. Turn it back on and on the control press and hold the cooking time and delay start pads together. While hold these keys, press the number 8 pad. The words test should appear in the display. Now press and hold the self clean pad and it should cycle the cam through the whole process. Here is what you should see. 1 test (unit is in unlocked position 0 test (moving toward latched pos. 2 test (latched position 0 test (moving toward unlocked pos. 1 test (unit is in unlocked pos. Press cancel to exit the test. See if this gets you going again, let me know, Catriver
