Cannot close oven door after cleaning

Hi Pauline:
Lots of oven doors are mounted by metal tabs that slide into slots.
I'd guess that maybe while cleaning, they may have moved.
Try moving the door towards the closed position until it binds or stops. Stand facing the door, knees against it, and hold both edges of the door with your hands. Gently lift the door and then try to slide it back down toward the hinge point. If it does not want to move, use a flashlight and try to determine what is stopping it from closing.
Hope this helps. Let me know.

Somehow the freezer door became locked and I can't figure out how to unlock it.

There is no lock on your refrigerator for either door. The lock/unlock button is only for the dispenser to keep small children from dispensing ice or water. If your door won't open it could be a few things. First, a package on one of the shelves dropped and is jamming the door on the inside. May require removal of the top hinge so you can tilt the door top forward and look inside to see what happened. Next, you may have one of the door hinges that actually broke and is keeping the door from opening. You will need to look close at both hinges but I would guess the bottom hinge would cause this more that the top since the door weight is all on the bottom hinge. The only thing that holds the doors closed is a magnetic gasket on most side by side models under normal conditions.

We have a Jenn-Air French door refrigerator. It's about 4 years old. It is maintaining its temperature fine. But all of a sudden, about 3 hours ago, there is a constant sound similar to a squeaky...

This is most likely a door open alarm caused by a problem with the door / light switch. Locate the light switch plunger and depress it. The light should go off. If the light does not go off the door switch has failed. The door switch is removed by sliding a thin bladed knife along the side if the switch and releasing the locking tab. The freezer door only has one locking tab on one side of the switch. The fresh food compartment door switch has 2 locking tabs on opposing sides of the switch. You unlock the tab(s) and remove the switch. The fresh food compartment door switch has 2 wires on it that close when the door is closed. The freezer door switch has 3 terminals on it. One terminal is C common. One is NO Normally open and once is NC normally closed. The NC terminal will have continuity to C with the punger extended. The NO contact will have continuity to C only when the plunger is depressed.

I think you have a bad door switch. If the freezer door switch fails the unit will stop making ice.

I have an Estate refrigerator by whirlpool Corporation, model # TT18DKXRQ01 with a 12-07 mfg. date. When you open the refrigerator door, as it closes, the freezer door always opens and closes. Apparently...

I also own a model # TT18DKXRQ01 Estate refrigerator and my freezer door pops open when I close the refrigerator. As you stated, this is caused by the magnet in the freezer gasket not being strong enough to hold. As far as I know, they do not make a stronger freezer gasket but even if they did, it would probably be too costly considering that a standard gasket replacement costs $80.

My solution was to install an adhesive child safety lock on the top of the freezer near the door handle. I purchased the 'Safety 1st Lock Release Fridge Latch' model # HS038 from my local Walmart store for around $5.

You may find this solution to be slightly inconvenient at first but you will get used to it. It sure beats losing food because the freezer door was accidently popped open.

It is a side-by-side, and difficult to open the doors, esp. the refrig. side after having opened and closed the freezer door.

Hi, this problem are what we called, vacuum (air) lock, it's not a problem, it means that your door are sealing properly, you should wait 2-4 mins, before opening, doors will open normally, if you give it 2-4 mins, if you try to open door immediately after closing, you will get that sort of vacuum lock, what you could do when it's lock, push something flat between door gasket and ref. body, try not to break gasket, you will hear air releasing, wait few seconds and door will open easily. it.s quite normally for ref. door to air lock, especially when you try to re-enter ref. immediately after closing. it will go away after a while, good luck.

How do use self clean service?

To set the controls for a self-clean cycle:
For satisfactory results use a 2 hour self-clean cycle for
light soils and a 3 hour cycle for average to heavy
1. Be sure the clock shows the correct time of day.
2. Press Clean. "— — —" appears in the display.
3. Press the Up Arrow until "3:00" appears in the
display for a 3 hour cycle, or press the Down Arrow
until "2:00" appears in the display for a 2 hour cycle.
4. As soon as the Up Arrow or Down Arrow is
released, "CLN" appears in the display.
5. As soon as the controls are set, the motor driven
lock will begin to close automatically and the "LOCK"
indicator light will flash. DO NOT open the door while
the light is flashing (it takes about 15 seconds for the
oven door to lock).
6. The "LOCK" light will glow until the cleaning cycle is
completed or cancelled, and the oven
temperature has cooled.
When the self-clean cycle is completed:
1. The time of day or “END” will appear in the display
window and the “Clean” and "LOCK" light will continue
to glow.
2. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 HOUR
and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can
be opened.
3. If “END” is in the display and the “Clean” indicator
remains on, press Clear/Off. The time of day will
appear in the display.
NOTE: When the oven is cool, wipe away any residue
or powdered ash with a damp cloth or paper towel.
Stopping or interrupting a self-cleaning cycle:
If it becomes necessary to stop or interrupt a selfcleaning
1. Press Clear/Off.
2. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 HOUR
and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can
be opened.
3. Restart the self-clean cycle once all conditions have
been corrected.
How the ES 200 operates:
The ES 200 electronic oven control system is made up
of three parts that control the bake and broil elements,
and the locking of the door in the self-clean cycle.
1. Electronic oven control.
2. Oven temperature sensor.
3. Oven door lock mechanism.

Oven door no longer closes

sounds as if the hinges are no longer closing properly,its the only thing gonna stop door from closing, unless you can physically see something protruding from the door that would stop it. no t totally unheard of for the hinges to fail, especially after a self clean cycle

Panel flashing, ice door opening and closing constantly

That is a faulty icemaker solenoid switch, or a contact on wiring.
