You must allow for the temp to cool down in the oven first. As the temp rises on the oven to a dangerously high level of 900f if anyone were to open that door they would be severely burned.
A thermostatically operated locking mech is installed to lock the door. The only way to get the door open is to wait till the oven cools down. If the mechanism is stuck locked you must remove the oven from the wall and disconnect a rod in the rear to get the oven open.

Self cleaning oven


Pheo,
Turn Breaker/Fuse for the stove, your electrical panel, “OFF” and then “ON”, wait 20 - 30 seconds and the door should unlock.
It may be that the temp sensor is going out and you'll need to have that looked at soon.

We had a lighting storm and the current went off. When the current came back on the oven door locked and now wont open.


The lighting has sent a surge though the control board, in return, causing a short within the main control circuits.

The EOC(electronic Oven Control) is unable to send the unlock command. it is shorted at this time. replacing this failing oven control(EOC), will restore the normal functions of this unit.

Normally, you would recive a door lock malfuction error code in this case to signal a door lock mechinism failuer but, in this case, the control has took a direct hit and, it is unable to fuction correctly.

LOC for oven door is unable to unloc


Put the oven in Self Clean mode for 3 minutes and then cancel.. if if that will release the relay that controls the lock. If that doesn't work, Unplug the oven for 10 mintues, then plug it back in holding the CLEAR button down. If neither of those work you will need to contact a service repair man.

Cant unlock self clean oven door


Door lock motor has probably failed.....Self clean on many ovens can be a self destruct mode. Door latch motors, sensor probes and even the electronic controls can be destroyed by this operation. Suggest oven cleaner method.
