Resolved Question:

I just used the self clean on my double oven (cleaning the bottom oven). Both doors lock during cleaning, but when it was finished only the top door unlocked and the bottom door oven which I was cleaning will not unlock. I tried unplugging the appliance for a few minutes but it will still not unlock

I also tried the method in the manual but it did not work. It has been approx 5 hours since the cleaning ended.
Expert:  Michael L....JA Appliance Repairman replied 6 years ago.

ok, try reseting the factory settings

The control can be reset to the factory default settings. To

return to the default settings:

1. Press and hold upper oven Keep Warm and CANCEL

pads for three seconds. A single beep will sound and 12:00

will appear in the display.

2. Reset the clock to the current time of day.

I tried that too! I guess I need to call a repair man in.
Expert:  Michael L....JA Appliance Repairman replied 6 years ago.

Unfortunately it sounds like the lock itself is failing, I would suggest that you do have a repairman to look at that, do you have the number for there repairman?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
YES, BUT THE MAIL BOX IS FULL, THAT IS WHY I CONTACTED THIS SITE. THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP ANYWAY.
