SOURCE: frigidaire oven door locked

SOME RANGES ARE DESIGNED TO LOCK IF THE CONTROL SENSES A TEMPERATURE EXTREME. IF THERE IS A FAILURE OF THE SENSOR THAT MAKES THE CONTROL THINK THE TEMP IS UP, IT WILL LOCK THE DOOR TO PREVENT INJURY. REMOVE THE BACK PANEL AND FIND THE OVEN SENSOR LEADS COMING OUT THE BACK OF THE OVEN. DISCONNECT THE SENSOR AND CHECK THE RESISTANCE. AT ROOM TEMP IT SHOULD BE SOMEWHERE AROUND 1084 OHMS. IF IT IS NOT CLOSE,
THE SENSOR IS BAD. PLUG IN A NEW SENSOR AT THAT CONNECTOR AND THE DOOR SHOULD UNLOCK. THEN GET INSIDE THE OVEN, REMOVE THE OLD SENSOR, AND REPLACE IT WITH THE ONE PLUGGED IN.

SOURCE: After using the self-clean cycle, display panel went black and oven door stayed locked.

Happens alot dont feel bad , self clean mode runs the elements at 500 deg. to cook off everything possible , what happens is the cabinet gets to hot and heats saftey temp. fuses until they go out and they are not resetable. they are always located in different areas of ranges but usaully in the back. you can ohm them out to check them if you have a meter.let me know if you have any other questions.

Why won't big oven door unlatch?


sounds like the lock motor has failed. Lots of clicking noises and not being able to lock/unlock is normally a good indicator. In some rare circumstances, main control board could be faulty. Look for me on 6ya if you need any more detailed help.

How to use self clean for oven


Turn off the oven light and remove all pans and racks from the oven. Clean the oven and door frames with a non-abrasive cleaner. Do not clean the door gasket. Remove any excess grease or debris from the oven bottom.

Close the door and move the lock lever to the right. The "Lock" indicator will light. Press the "Clean" pad, then press the up or down arrows on the "Set" pad to adjust the cleaning time: two hours for light soil, three hours for medium soil and four hours for heavy soil.

Cancel self-cleaning after it has started by pressing "Cancel."

Wait one hour after the cleaning cycle has ended for the "Lock" indicator to go out. Unlock the door.

Clean the oven racks with soapy water and a scouring pad and put them back in the oven.

Locked oven door


OK, when you go to use the "Self Clean" function, what happens is special door "Interlocks" engage to absolutely ensure they door can in NO WAY come open during and for some considerable time later. You see the "Clean" is heating up to so,e absurd temperature, about 700 -900 Degrees! This basically BURNS everything up. So when this happens, the Doors stay looked, if you hit cancel and it DID NOT do anything, then try removing from Power, totally for a while and reconnect. If it did do the clean, then often this procedure burns out the thermistor inside, and then the doors stay closed too. You will have to check, which one. Also it may have "Glitched" the controller. Hopefully removing from power will work.

Need instruction book


Jade / Dynasty ph# 800-884-5233, most cases the big BANG noise is coming from the broken oven bottom pan, small BANG is normal, if you know how to remove the bottom them pull it out and inspect it, part of the V shape flame spreader may come off from bottom pan, you can have the welder weld it back on for you or order new bottom pan thru Dynasty. I'm not sure what do you mean by gas shut off. (turn off oven? turn off burners?)

Maytag oven: How to clean


Before you self clean you always want to take a rag with warm water and remove all chunks of food.

Next clean around the frame of the door gasket with the rag(these cant get clean in self clean) do not clean gasket IMPORTANT

Remove all racks and pans

Most older door handle locks require a few buttons, get your model number(which is located either on the frame your bottom drawer shuts on if a single oven, if double is on door frame if built into cabinet walls, if on floor its on back of control panel, a piece of metal thats like a mailbox flag, you turn it to read model from front) and go to www.maytag.com click support then manuals enter your whole model number EXCEPT the last letter. (example if your model is MER6775AWW enter MER6775AW<--only one W) This should bring up use and care guide, which will give step by step instructions, if you follow them and it wont clean, your latch most likely needs replacement

Self cleaning


You can go to the Maytag web site and download the manual.  www.maytag.com, or go to http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/8113p293.pdf
and download the manual CAUTION 
• It is normal for parts of the ovens to become hot during a self-clean cycle. 
• To prevent damage to oven doors, do not attempt to open the doors when LOCK is displayed. 
• Avoid touching doors, windows or oven vent area during 
a clean cycle. 
Do not use commercial oven cleaners on the oven finish or around any part of the ovens.  They will damage the finish or parts. 
Do not leave baking/pizza stone in the oven during self-clean. 

The self-clean cycle uses above-normal cooking temperatures 
to automatically clean the oven interior. 
The oven should be cleaned regularly by wiping up spillovers 
to prevent excessive smoke and flare-ups.  Do not allow a 
heavy build-up of soil to accumulate in the oven. 
During the cleaning process, the kitchen should be well 
ventilated to get rid of normal odors associated with cleaning. 

Before Self-Cleaning 
1. Turn off the oven light before cleaning as the light may burn out during the clean cycle. 
2. Remove broiler pan, all pans, and oven racks from the oven.  The oven racks will discolor and may not slide easily after a self-clean cycle if they are not removed. 
3. Clean oven frame, door frame (area outside of gasket, and around the opening in the door gasket) with a nonabrasive 
cleaner such as Bon Ami* or detergent and water.  The self-cleaning process does not clean these areas.  They should be cleaned to prevent soil from baking on during the clean 
cycle.  (The gasket is the seal around the oven door and window.) 
4. To prevent damage, do not clean or rub the gasket around the oven door.  The gasket is designed to seal in heat during the clean cycle. 
5. Wipe up excess grease or spillovers from the oven bottom. This prevents excessive smoking, flare-ups or flaming during the clean cycle. 
6. Wipe up sugary and acidic spillovers such as sweet potatoes, tomato, or milk-based sauces. Porcelain enamel is acid-resistant, not acid-proof.  The porcelain finish may discolor if acidic or sugary spills are not wiped up before a self-clean cycle. 

Important: 
• Oven temperature must be below 400° F to program a clean cycle. 
Only one oven can be cleaned at a time. 
• Both oven doors lock when either oven is being cleaned. 
To set Self-Clean: 
1. Close the oven door. 
2. Press the Clean pad. 
    • CLEAN flashes. 
    • SET and UPPER or LOWER flash in the display. 
3. Press the Autoset pad. 
    • “MEd” (Medium Soil, 3 hours) is displayed. 
4. Press the Autoset pad to scroll through the self-cleaning settings. 
     “HVy” (Heavy Soil, 4 hours) 
     “MEd” (Medium soil, 3 hours) 
     “LITE” ( Light Soil, 2 hours) 
Choosing the soil level of the oven automatically programs the self-cleaning time. 
5. After four seconds, the oven will start cleaning. 
    • If the door is not closed, beeps will sound and ‘door’ will display.         If the door is not closed within 30 seconds, the self-cleaning       operation will be canceled and the display will return to the time of day. 
    • CLEAN will appear in the display. 
    • LOCK will flash in the display.  Once the door locks, LOCK will
      remain steady. 
    • The cleaning time will start counting down in the display.

Self cleaning oven door locked before I got the door closed.


Try holding in on the door switch while resetting the clean cycle.
This should rotate the latch. Once the cycle starts, cancel it. The latch should go to the unlock position.

You will have to hold in on the door switch during all these steps.

If this does not work, post back with the complete model number from the oven and I will see what else I can come up with.
