Oven door will not unlock on Amana gas range
« on: August 29, 2014, 10:07:29 AM »
Went to clean the oven and the door locked. When it was done the door remained locked. This model doesn't have a lock latch on the outside so there's no way to access it. Any thoughts would be appreciated. I was about to just force it open but it feels like I will break it if I do. Don't think I can get to it from the rear so I'm at a loss.

TIA - Brian

I believe the latch latches from left to right. If you bend a hook in a coat hanger and grab latch hook with it, pull hook to left push door in and to the right, open door. Now you can take screws out of range top from just above door also need to remove burners to lift top. Replace latch assembly.

You can with a 1/4" wrench. One on each corner. Also have to remove screws in sealed burners

Got it! Pretty sure I have a defective/broken latch assembly but I can live with that for now. My oven works again. A big thank you to everyone here  O0
