I was cleaning my Jenn-Air JER8850 when at the end of the cycle the display flashed F1 and began to beep. Now the door is locked and will not release. Does anyone know how to get the door to release???

Re: Electric Range Door Locked after cleaning
"F1" is an error code for any of the following possible problems:
Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board.
Wiring harness shorted.
Defective touchpad on the control board.
I speculate that the control board may have failed during the cleaning cycle, causing your problem. Unfortunately, this may be an expensive repair if it is a control board, and it could be maintenance intensive to get to the door latch to release it. You will need to lift the stove top to gain access to the linkage for the oven door relay. There should be a few screws under the top front to remove. Make sure you unplug the unit or turn off the circuit breaker before servicing. I hope this helps you.

Door locked flashing after the attempt of the cleaning cycle.
After taking the oven appart to get the door open, I began troubleshooting. I discovered that the door lock motor failed in the locked position. I opened up the motor and found the magnet inside was cracked! The coil winding for the motor was also open. Hope that helps!
While your waiting on the new part you can trick the oven by using a zip tie on each of the two lock motor micro switches to hold them closed and remove the lock lever. The oven will work just fine.
Hello, I am going to include a link which gives you a full list of error codes, once you have found the error code for you range it should just be a matter of changing the part...If you have any problem understanding what the error code refers to please feel free to comment again and i will go through the problem with you. Hope this helps...good luck!!!
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.

This is not a problem. The cleaning cycle goes on for approximately 4 hours as I recall. it will unlock by itself when done. Read your user guide for troubleshooting tips. if you can't locate your copy, one is available on line at the Jenn-Air site
