I have a Whrilpool GW395LEP Gas Range that the door is locked.

Resolved Question:

I have a Whrilpool GW395LEP Gas Range that the door is locked. This resulted in setting the oven self-clean switch. After the oven heated up and ran approximately 30 min we returned to the oven and found the front panel dead and the oven door still locked. We unplugged the stove from the wall waited a long while..30min to an hour... and then plugged it back in. Still nothing showed on the front panel. The stove top still ignites and operates. How do I get the door open and what parts do I need?

the best way to get the oven open is to replace the control. when you replace it and plug the oven back in it should unlock. the power for the lock comes from the control, before replacing the control check the thermal protector and make sure its not blown, Part 905772# XXXXX on this diagram, if it has continuity its good, replace the control, hope this helps, thanks Bryan

little confused... the thermal protector appears to be inside the oven compartment and in accordance with your description I can't get to it without replacing the control panel. Is that correct?
Expert:  Bryan replied 7 years ago.
well the thermal protector is either on the back of the oven or the roof, these can be a pain sometimes, the diagram doesn't really show where , sorry, Bryan
