Customer Question

I set the oven to 350 to bake a cake. I opened the door to make sure the rack was at the right level, closed the door and it locked itself. How do I get it open? I need to put the cake in the oven. Posie Beam
JA: What's the make and model of your oven? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: Yes......I need to get my cake in the oven now

Doesw the oven seem to be getting very hot, much hotter than the temperature selected?

The oven doesn't respond at all. I told you that I set to 350 then opened the door to make sure the rack was in the right position, then closed the door and it locked and the oven turned itself off

Does the oven control show that the door is locked? Turn the breaker off for about 5 minutes and see if it unlocks. Let me know what happens, please.

This is ridiculous. You've got my credit card and permission to charge $5.00 to answer what should be a simple question. Just tell me how to get the oven door open PLEASE. I've got a cake ready to go into the oven!!!

Your hostility and unwillingness to work with me is not going to work for me. Good luck.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Don't you dare charge my credit card unless you answer my question - how to unlock the oven door - in the next 10 minutes.
