My oven door won't open after it went through the self cleaning cycle. Help.

I cleaned my oven yesterday but brought the oven timer to 2 hours of cleaning instead of the original 3 hour cleaning cycle. Today, I recleaned the oven at the set 3 hours time and now I cannot open the oven door.

I know that it can be very frustrating to have your oven door refuse to unlock. However, without your model number I can only give some general information. On your control panel you should see a button, usually the stop/clear, that has a picture of a lock underneath it. Press this button down for 5 seconds, then wait for 2 minutes and try the door. If it does not unlock, restart your self clean cycle, wait for 1 minute, then press stop/clear twice. You should hear the latch unlock. If it does not and the door lock light is flashing, then it shows a malfunction in the latch assembly. If the door does not unlock and the light stays the same, it is a control panel problem. I would recommend for these repair you have a technician do them. They can be very complicated.

If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
