    Mid 80's (I think) Whirlpool 30" Microwave/oven combination. Has a locking arm/lever for self cleaning. The cleaning cycle finished, but now the door is still locked, and we can't get it open.



    HELP!!

    I have the same problem. I moved the lever to the clean position, now I can't move it back. I have jiggled it, but I don't even know how to remove the oven to replace it. Any suggestions?

I think it stays locked until the oven cools down.

Used self cleaning process on my oven yesterday and today the oven will not turn on, we keep getting message to unlock the oven door even though it is. What can we do?


The oven gets extremely hot during the self-cleaning mode... the door switch might have got stuck in locked position, or broken in locked position (to be replaced), let's hope it's just stuck...which you'll need to work the mechanical lock-unlock latching back and forth to hopefully unstick....and if that doesn't work just re-run self-cleaning process but this time let the oven cool completely before unlocking the door. Hope this helps.

Admiral electric range with self cleaning oven


Hey there gcato1, your problem is actually a protective feature designed to prevent you from getting burned. The self cleaning feature runs at extremely hot temps. Until the temperature reaches a safe level, the oven door will remain latched. Be patient and the problem will solve itself.

Door lock light blinking ,oven wont work on a older gibson self cleaning oven.


It sounds to me that the door lock switch itself is stuck in the "on" position. If you don't use the self-cleaning feature, I would suggest simply disconnecting the switch. If you DO use the self-cleaning feature, you may want to consider replacing the switch or inspect it to make sure there isn't debris, grease, etc., stuck in it, making it stuck on all the time.

I hope this helps! :) Please let me know if you need any further assistance in this matter and I'll be more than happy to help!

Self-cleaning door lock is engaged and door won't close. How do I get door look to release so I can close the door?


Hello,

I would first try resetting the breaker or unplugging the unit for a minute or two and see if that yield`s any success. If not...

Try holding the door switch pushed in.(or held closed in electrical terms) This may require a second person if you can`t reach the clock/timer while engaging the switch. With the switch held, set the unit for self-clean, let the lock advance to a "locked" position and once it indicates it is locked press cancel while still holding the switch closed. This should in theory force the lock to advance to it`s open/unlock position.

Hope that help`s. If so please rate the solution I provided.

Thanks for visiting fixya and good luck.

Opened oven door before it could lock while I was


try unplugging the unit,
depending on your exact model it may just be lost in the programming becuse it sensed the door open while locking so it shuts down the lock for safety
just unplugging if for a few minutes might clear the error enough for the lock to rotate back to closed
position

Door locked after cancelling self clean option


Open the door. In the upper left corner, press and hold the door switch (the one that controls the inside light). Start a self clean cycle and wait for lock motor to engage. When the lock stops moving it should be in the unlocked position. Press cancel to stop the self clean.

If you need more assistance let me know.
Good luck!

Oven Lock stuck open before start of self-cleaning cycle


Sounds like you bent the door where the lock is. You might have to replace the door.

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..
