I don't see the make and model number of your unit. I only see part of your post. Please post the make and model number. It should be a simple fix. From what I do see in your post, it sounds like the control board will need to be replaced. Regards,Richard
Press the self-clean button. The panel becomes blank(---), then press the up arrow( ^ ). The panel will appear 3:00 (indication for the duration of self-cleaning). The oven will lock on its own and start the self-cleaning.
This code means the control has detected a problem with the door latch switch. Switch is defective and needs replaced. Part # is W10107820 and cost is $39.99. You can get it at this LINK Before calling a repair shop,go to the circuit breaker box and turn off the power to the oven. then turn it back on and then see if the door is released and the error is cleared. its probaly bent door latch or door sensor gone bad. try pushing on the door when you start the clean cycle see if that helps. if not our suggestion would be to replace the part....
If no food or utensils are in oven, put it
into a short self-clean cycle (1-2 hours).
If there is food in the oven, let the oven cool
to room temperature and try to unlatch the door.
With electronic ranges there is a small
chance that turning the circuit
breaker off for a few minutes and turning it back on can release
latch to the "off"
not force the latch at anytime!
Door Will Not Unlock After Cleaning:
On models with mechanical latches:
Once the oven is cool after a self-clean cycle
(approximately 30-90 minutes), slide the latch over to the left.(Some
older models have a latch release button that must be pushed in while
sliding the latch over.)
Note: Some models with
oven Set and Temperature
knobs must have those knobs set in the Clean position
before the latch can be moved to the left. If your door won't unlock,
try turning those knobs back to Clean, then
slide the latch over.
If the above suggestions do
not work try the following to unlock your door:
Disconnect power to range for 30 seconds.
Reconnect power and see if door will unlatch.
If door does not unlatch, and you do
have food in the oven, wait for oven to cool completely and try again.
If it still will not open you will need service.
If door does not unlatch, and you do
not have food in the oven, set the oven up to clean for 1-2
Wait approximately 30 minutes and try to unlock the door.
If the door unlocks, the control has reset itself and there
should not be any other problems.
Turns out that the latch is attached to a plastic piece (made by the manufacturer) and the spring melted! To boot, the fuse in the back which aids in heating the oven went out also. Repair man said this was typical after several uses in cleaning cycle. He recommended using a gentle steel wool pad with soap built in to gently remove backed on food instead of using cleaning cycle. It is just too hot for too long, and there seems to be a domino effect with things that will go wrong. Nothing like the old fashioned way and a little elbow grease!
There is a manual reset button behind the vent under the touch pad. Turn off the power. Open the door. Remove the vent. Behind the latch is a two wire switch. press the red button on it until it clicks. reassemble and turn on power. It over heated when the power went off by stopping the cooling fan.
