Blodgett DFG-100 Gas Single Oven - Page 8 - Answered Questions & Fixed issues
My oven door is still locked after cleaning system set yesterday. How can I get it to open?
First, make sure that the control pad lock (child lock) isn't enabled. This could prevent any of the following steps from working. You can try unplugging the oven (or turn it off at the circuit breaker) for several minutes (5-10). After returning power to the unit, press the key pad button for Clear/Off. This often resets the electronic control. A similar option is to start another self-cleaning cycle. After 1-2 minutes, when you hear the oven start the heating cycle, press Clear/Off. Sometimes if you wait for up to 2 hours after running a short (1-2 hour) cleaning cycle, the door will unlock.
If these steps don't work, then the thermostat is not recognizing that the oven has cooled down to a safe temperature or the door lock mechanism is damaged. Trying to force the door open will probably damage additional parts of the oven. Turn off the oven before starting to attempt to access the lock mechanism. You can try accessing the lock mechanism from the back or by using a bent wire (like a section of coat hanger). Slide the wire between the door and the oven at the top. Then try to pull the locking rod to the open position.
You'll need to either schedule a service call or pinpoint the failure yourself. Check the continuity across the oven temperature sensor, the over temperature limit sensor and the door lock mechanism. Make sure that the oven is cool and unplugged to start. For the door lock, you need to set the oven to the self-clean cycle to obtain a measurement. Check the wiring between these points and the control board if the readings are close to the expected value for your model. For most ovens, the door lock switch test should give a value close to zero. If replacing the temperature sensor or the door lock mechanism doesn't work and the wiring is undamaged, then the control board may need to be replaced. Replace the faulty parts.
I hope this helps. Please add comment with the model number if you need a parts list or diagram for your oven.
