Re: Need help unlock oven after self cleaning jenn air...
The temperature setting must be set on "Cleaning" and the oven cooking dial to "Clean"; otherwise the door will not open and forcing will damage the mechanism. Also, before the door will open, the internal temperature must drop to a safe level and a red "cleaning" light must go off, after the temperature drops inside the oven.

The timer may think it is still in clean. The easiest way to try and fix this is to set another clean cycle and let it run all the way. Set it for the least amount of time that it will let you for example try a 15 minute clean cycle. Once it goes through it and turns off automatically it may release the lock, if not you will most likely need someone from service out.
After the lock indicator light goes out, move the
door lock lever to the left. The oven door can now be opened. Turn the
selector and temperature knobs from clean to off AFTER THE DOOR IS
UNLOCKED. If the temperature knob is turned to off BEFORE the door is
unlocked, the door will not open. Forcing the lock will damage the lock
mechanism. If this should happen, return the temperature knob back to
CLEAN, unlock the door, THEN turn the temperature knob off.
Jenn-Air Grill Range with Self Cleaning Radiant Bake and Convection Oven models S136, S156, S161
I have Jenn Air oven S136-C with a locking bar. After cleaning cycle wait for the oven to cool down and the lock light will go out (but the oven is not yet unlocked.)
Set SELECTOR knob to OFF
Set TEMPERATURE knob to CLEAN
Press CANCEL button (on right) twice.
Slide the locking bar to the left and the oven door will open.
Maryann, try shutting the breaker off for 5 minutes and see if the door unlocks. Im assuming the oven has cooled down. If that doesn't work try holding the cancel and broil pads for 3 seconds. This will put it into the quik test mode. Once in this mode press the clean button. This should toggle between lock and unlock. Don't know if this will work for you but it's worth a try..Catriver...post back.
