My wife did the self clean thing, now we have the F1 code, as well as a locked oven door. After opening the back to gain access to the clock board, and removing the flat cable, power back on and I get the beeps and F1 code still. After reading here and elsewhere, I tend to think it's the temp sensor. But the oven door is locked! So, is there a trick to get it open so I can check the sensor?

BTW, this has been the best site I have visited regarding my problem. It will be even better if I can get the oven fixed because of this site.

Be thankful that you're is the manual locking assembly-- these are much easier to break into than the autolocks. 

You may have to disassemble from the top downward to get access to the door lock assembly.  I seem to recall that on some of these Jenn Airs, I could get into a locked door by removing the grill just below the control panel and manually actuating the lock assembly.   You may also be able to use a coat hangar to unclip the lock catch.  It's a small, subtle catch, so it doesn't take much force. 

Once you get the door open, you should replace the door lock assembly.

Thank you! for the quick reply. So I should replace the door lock assembly in addition to the temp sensor (provided it test bad)?

Thanks again,
John

Yes, you replace any and all parts that are bad.  The door latch assembly is bad prima facia because of the stuck door.  The sensor will prove to be either good or bad once you get your meter on it.

OKAY! It works! Here's what I did. I opened the door with a coat hangar (very quick and easy), the latch was at the top in the center and was locked to the right (facing the front of the door), and it was spring loaded.

Removed the temp sensor and took a ohm reading, 24k! So I replaced the sensor (a shop in town was open today, Sunday) and plugged in the cord. Voila! The door latch slowly retracted and all is good.

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
