Complaint is oven door locked while using oven.   Will not unlock & has never used clean cycle.    They told me that it happened once before when they bought range in 2006.   Repair men came out and 'calibrated' it.

 

My questions:

  • what would trigger the latch motor into locking
  • How can I get it to unlatch (button dance)
  • If I can't get it to electronically unlatch, how would I manually unlock it.
  • May I get a mini manual if it does not have one (already told that there is nothing at rear cabinet.

I have reviewed other posts But found nothing pertaining to this exact model.   I have not talked to client yet, information was passed on to me,  I will see range in morning.

Several things can cause the doors to lock.. Chief among them is the board may think the oven is too hot so it's trying to protect the customer. Failed sensor, bad connection to the board or a bad board. Unplugging the stove for a while and starting and cancelling a self clean cycle after 10 minutes or so can sometimes unlock the doors.

Sensei Reg is correct, this usually happens after a self clean or an aborted self clean cycle.

Check the manual for manual unlocking procedures... many times a good old coat hanger slid in from the left side and hooked on the latch is the easiest way... but again check your manual
