This answer was rated:

Amana AER5845QAS Electric Kitchen Range and the oven door, self cleaning, will not unlock even when the oven has been sitting for several days. I have even pressed the cancel button and nothing happened. Any suggestions?

Hi, Thank you for using justanswer for your appliance questions!

First things first, Turn the power off to your range and wait 5 minutes, then turn back on. Do not touch any controls for 2 minutes after turning power back on. Then touch cancel.

Hope this helps!

Let me know if you need more assistance or if you have any questions.

Your idea was unsuccessful. Any ways I will still pay you for the timely answer. I managed to open it on my own using a screwdriver to shimmy the locking mechanism to the left a bit. I didn't want to try this earlier in fear of causing damage. Nonetheless, I want my lady to cook some pie for me. Thanks again.
Ok , If you need any help just ask! / chuck
