How to open a locked oven door

Is the oven door locked at power up?

Press Cancel/Off key to start a latch reset, wait 20-30 seconds and open door.


Turn the power off at the circuit breaker or fuse box for 1 min, then turn power back on.

Is the oven door locked due to power failure during Self-Clean?

If power was interrupted during a Self-Clean cycle, select the "Self Clean" option, then select "Cancel".  Wait a couple of minutes then try to start the cycle again. 

If the oven clean cycle was started mistakenly:

Press Cancel/Off key. The oven will need to cool to approximately 200F(95C) before the oven door will open.
