Question about GE JGB916SEKSS stainless steel Gas Kitchen Range
Spilled some stuff in the oven and wanted to run the Self Cleaning... I apparently didn't have the door all the way closed when I hit start and now the latch is locked but the door is still open. Help! There must be a way to open the latch "manually" I tried to cycle the power to the stove. Off 30 seconds at breaker. That didn't even reset the clock... I saw a refence to a manual open? Any help is appreciated... I have warranty support but that takes 2-3 weeks I can't imagine no oven for that long even witht eh toaster oven and microwave working!
On many freestanding stoves the lock motor is located in the right rear (looking from the front) with a long rod connected to the lock. Pull or push the rod to move the lock to the open position..

SOURCE: Oven lock stuck in locked
This is a very common issue with these appliances whenever the cleaning cycle is interrupted this normally is the result.
So what you will need to do is to first unplug the appliance from the wall outlet and leave it alone for 1 hour this allows the internal self reset feature to reset the oven.
once the hour has elapsed plug it back in and you should hear a audiable click within about 5 min or if you have a cancel button press it and you should be able to continue from there okHopethis is very helpful for you Please keep me posted ok
Best regards mike
