Reply to MrBill's Post: where would I find it at

Hello,

If the stove has a bottom drawer, check down there. Pull out the drawer and look around where the drawer meets the body of the stove.

Thanks Again,

Bill

i have looked everywhere there is not one on it we rent and the stove comes with the house- It is quite a few years old I am sure- can you help me without the model number
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
is there a manual release somewhere - i think I might have open the oven before it was cooled down and that is why the lock will not release
Expert:  MrBill replied 8 years ago.

Hello,

By having the model number I will be able to look up diagrams of your machine and basically be able to see what you are looking at. There are many different types of lock styles for this brand of stove. Some are electronic and some are manual.

Some locks are in the front and some are in the back. Without the model number, I would be guessing an answer.

Is the stove Gas or electric?

Is there a lever to manually lock the door?

I will do my best without the model number.

Thanks Again,

Bill
