Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 8 months ago.

First, you're going to want to leave the circuit breaker off or unplug the oven for 24 hours. After that, you can plug the unit back in and hopefully it'll dry out and work like norm. If not, then your display board shorted out from water getting on it because that's the only thing that would cause the door to lock and such.

Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open and unrated. Is there anything else I can help you with?
