What does error F 53 mean. I was trying to have the oven go

Resolved Question:

What does error F 53 mean. I was trying to have the oven go through the self-clean sequence after a dinner in which some mess spilled on the bottom of the oven. However, after I took out the racks and turned the self clean on, the code F 53 came. i turned the oven off. Please tell me the meaning of fault code 53. Thank you.

the door latch is broken and will have to be replaced and if the door is locked and need to open you you just need to get some kind of thin wire (a coat hanger or something thinner, more flexible preferably) and slide the latch.

thank you. I used your suggestion and finally got the door to open again. I presume that I can still cook with the oven?
