Hi

Can you post the model number please.

Also are you able to set the time?

Regards

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

SCP399X -8 is the more modern version of the oven

We can set the time on the clock

Hi

Ok have you tried unplugging the oven and leaveing it 20 mins then turn it back on and see if this resets it and allows the door to release?

Regards

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

sorry we have tried that already

Expert:  Daniel replied 2 years ago.

Ok there isnt much info in the service info on this model so rather then guess im going to opt out and if another expert can help on this they will jump in.

solved ourselves, used a flat instrument across the door to release the door lock and this has cleared the fault code

Hi, I am Tech Michael, can you give me a little more information on this. How old is your oven?

You will likely have a problem using the self clean feature again. If you would like to fix that please let me know and I will assist you there ;-)

Thank you Tech Michael
