Scholtes FE46 and the door is locked. Also no clock/timer lights. Temp/function and oven work but is locked even though completely cold.


Here are a couple of things to try:
  1. Unplug the unit or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Plug the unit back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and gently try moving the door lock lever (is so equipped) or opening the door.
  2. Set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for 15 minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever (is so equipped) or opening the door.

How to CLEAN a Frigidaire Self-Cleaning Oven Step 1Use a plastic spoon to scrape...


How to CLEAN a Frigidaire Self-Cleaning Oven
Step 1Use a plastic spoon to scrape away any extra spillovers or burnt-on food from inside the oven. Remove as much of this as you can before running the self-cleaning cycle, because any spillovers left in the oven during the cleaning cycle may cause a lot of smoke.
  • Step 2Wipe off the inside of the oven with a rag dipped in soapy water. Be careful not to get any cleaning supplies on the oven door gasket or to disrupt the position of the gasket at all; having a good seal is critical to the success of the oven's self-cleaning cycle.
  • Step 3Clean any soil away from the oven frame and its door liner with a rag dipped in soapy water. Any soil left on these parts of the oven may become burned on during the self-cleaning cycle.
  • Step 4Pull the broiler pan and grid, any utensils, and any tin foil that may have been left in the oven out of it. They can't withstand the extreme temperatures the self-cleaning oven will reach. It's okay to leave the oven racks in the oven.
  • Step 5Make sure the oven door is completely closed.
  • Step 6Press the "CLEAN" button on the control pad. Use the up and down arrows to select the desired cleaning time; use 2 hours for a lightly soiled oven and 3 or 4 hours for a dirtier oven. The oven will lock itself and begin the cleaning cycle.
  • Step 7Wait for the cycle to end and the oven to cool; it will then unlock itself automatically. Don't try to open the oven door before it has unlocked itself.

    Oven door is locked with food in it how to unlock asap


    Hi , Anon !
    My name is Ashlynn .
    If your oven is locked , here's some ways you can unlock it :
  • 1 Look for a manual lever to unlock the oven. If there is one, it will probably swing back and forth horizontally, just below the upper edge of the oven door.
  • 2 Swing the locking lever, if one is present, all the way to the left. This should unlock the oven. If there is no manual lever to unlock the oven, it may be unlocked using push-button controls.
  • 3 Check to see if the oven is in a self-cleaning cycle, or has just completed a self-cleaning cycle. If so, the door will unlock automatically once the oven has finished the cleaning cycle and cooled completely, which may take several hours. You cannot unlock the oven before it has cooled.
  • 4 Unlock the "Clean/Off" button. Depending on the brand and model of your oven, the button may display both of these designations or just one. If your oven door is locked, but the oven is not warm and is not in a cleaning cycle, unlock it by pressing and holding the "Clean/Off" button.

    But it seems you have food inside so ,
    Press cancel on the cooking cycle , and let it cool to room temperature , and then try to open your oven .

    Can I clean a TruTemp oven with soap and water without ruining it?


    Hi,

    Yes you could clean it.

    Check few details :-

    t the bottom of this post you will find the web address for your ranges manual and the self clean system is in side this manual.

    How to self clean

    If your model has a door latch, never force the latch handle. Forcing the handle will damage the door lock mechanism.
    The oven door must be closed and all controls set correctly for the cycle to work properly.
    Before a Clean Cycle
    For the first self-clean cycle, we recommend
    venting your kitchen with an open window
    or using a ventilation fan or hood.
    Remove any broiler pan, broiler grid, all
    cookware, probe and any aluminum foil
    from the oven—they cannot withstand the
    high cleaning temperatures.
    NOTE:
    If your oven is equipped with nickel oven
    shelves, remove them before you begin
    the self-clean cycle.

    If your oven is equipped with gray
    porcelain-coated oven shelves, they may
    be left in the oven during the self-clean
    cycle.
    Soil on the front frame of the range and
    outside the gasket on the door will need to
    be cleaned by hand. Clean these areas with
    hot water, soap-filled scouring pads or
    cleansers such as Soft Scrub®. Rinse well
    with clean water and dry.
    Do not clean the gasket. The fiberglass
    material of the oven door gasket cannot
    withstand abrasion. It is essential for the
    gasket to remain intact. If you notice it
    becoming worn or frayed, replace it.
    Wipe up any heavy spillovers on the oven
    bottom.
    Make sure the oven light bulb cover is in
    place and the oven light is off.
    IMPORTANT: The health of some birds
    is extremely sensitive to the fumes given
    off during the self-cleaning cycle of any
    range. Move birds to another well ventilated
    room.

    NOTE: Use caution when opening the upper
    oven after the self-clean cycle has ended.
    The oven may still be hot.


    How to Set the Upper Oven for Cleaning
    On models with Gas/Control Lockout,
    touch and hold the Gas/Control Lockout
    pad for 3 seconds to turn it off.
    NOTE: The surface burners must be turned
    off prior to the self-clean start time.
    If your model has a latch, latch the door.
    Touch the Self Clean pad.
    Using the number pads, enter the
    desired clean time, if a time other than
    4 hours is needed.
    Clean cycle time is normally 4 hours. You can
    change the clean time to any time between
    3 hours and 5 hours, depending on how dirty
    your oven is.
    Touch the Start pad.
    On models without a door latch, the door
    locks automatically. The display will show
    the clean time remaining. It will not be
    possible to open the oven door until the
    temperature drops below the lock
    temperature and the LOCKED DOOR
    light goes off.
    The oven shuts off automatically when the
    clean cycle is complete.
    When the LOCKED DOOR light is off,
    slide the latch handle to the left as far
    as it will go and open the door. If your
    range does not have a latch, the door
    will unlock automatically.
    The words LOCK DOOR will flash and
    the oven control will signal if you set
    the clean cycle and forget to close the
    oven door or forget to latch the door
    on models with a latch.
    To stop a clean cycle, touch the Clear/Off
    pad. When the LOCKED DOOR light goes
    off, indicating the oven has cooled below
    the locking temperature, unlatch the door
    (on models with a latch) and open the door
    The oven door must be closed and all controls set correctly for the cycle to work properly.

    How to Delay the Start of Cleaning
    Make sure the clock shows the correct time
    of day.
    On models with Gas/Control Lockout,
    touch and hold the Gas/Control Lockout
    pad for 3 seconds to turn it off.
    NOTE: The surface burners must be turned
    off prior to the self-clean start time.
    If your model has a latch, latch
    the door.
    Touch the Self Clean pad.
    Using the number pads, enter the
    desired clean time.
    Touch the Delay Start pad. The earliest
    start time you can set will appear in the
    display.
    Using the number pads, enter the time
    of day you want the clean cycle
    to start.
    Touch the Start pad.
    On models without a door latch, the door
    locks automatically. The display will show the
    start time. It will not be possible to open the
    oven door until the temperature drops below
    the lock temperature and the LOCKED DOOR
    light goes off.
    The oven shuts off automatically when the
    clean cycle is complete.
    When the LOCKED DOOR light is off,
    slide the latch handle to the left as far
    as it will go and open the door. If your
    range does not have a latch, the door
    will unlock automatically.
    The words LOCK DOOR will flash and the
    oven control will signal if you set the clean
    cycle and forget to close the oven door or
    forget to latch the door on models with
    a latch.
    To stop a clean cycle, touch the Clear/Off
    pad
    . When the LOCKED DOOR light goes
    off, indicating the oven has cooled below
    the locking temperature, unlatch the door
    (on models with a latch) and open the door.


    After a Clean Cycle
    You may notice some white ash in the oven.
    Wipe it up with a damp cloth after the
    oven cools.
    If white spots remain, remove them with a
    soap-filled scouring pad and rinse thoroughly
    with a vinegar and water mixture.
    These deposits are usually a salt residue
    that cannot be removed by the clean cycle.
    If the oven is not clean after one clean cycle,
    repeat the cycle.
    You cannot set the oven for cooking until
    the oven is cool enough for the door to
    unlock.
    While the oven is self-cleaning, you can
    touch the Clock pad to display the time
    of day. To return to the clean countdown,
    touch the Cooking Time pad.
    If the shelves become hard to slide, apply a
    small amount of vegetable oil or cooking oil
    to a paper towel and wipe the edges of the
    oven shelves with the paper towel.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    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!

    Jenn-Air stove locked


    After the lock indicator light goes out, move the door lock lever to the left. The oven door can now be opened. Turn the selector and temperature knobs from clean to off AFTER THE DOOR IS UNLOCKED. If the temperature knob is turned to off BEFORE the door is unlocked, the door will not open. Forcing the lock will damage the lock mechanism. If this should happen, return the temperature knob back to CLEAN, unlock the door, THEN turn the temperature knob off.

    Oven Door Locked


    the oven door does lock during self clean, otherwise it will not work. however, the door is supposed to unlock after the oven has cooled. if it is still locked, turn the oven to self clean and wait about a minute and then hit cancel and see if the door unlocks. if not, there may be a probelm with the door lock mechanism.
