Question about Ovens
The lock on my oven door is in the lock position so the oven door can't close. How do I reset the oven to get the lock to release? I've tried unplugging it and hitting clear.
Try putting it into CLEAN MODE and wait about 3 minutes.... then cancel the clean mode. Sometimes this will release the relay if its stuck.
If that doesn't work, you have a problem with the latch relay and you need service on the unit. You can try and remove the latch assembly yourself, but it can be tricky, and you may create more problems than you fix.

Hello Steven Krenz - Was the unit in self-clean mode? Try pressing and holding the "Clear/Off" button to stop any operation of the EOC. Do this at the same time while pushing and hold the light switch to the left of the door lock. Usually this will trick the oven into unlocking the door. If it is ineffective, try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and redo the steps. If door continues to maintain locked while open, the unit may possibly have a faulty door latch or a communication problem with the EOC. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

lock assembly is bad and should be replaced, you can try to move it but that
won't help and will have to be replaced to solve this issue. Hope this
helps...please post back for further assistance.
