Kenmore Oven Door Lock Stuck Out

We have a Kenmore oven and the lock is stuck out and won't go back in; we can't run the oven because we can't close the door. There is no error code and we don't know the model number.

    Same thing - oven lock is stuck in the closed position (even though the door is open) so that we cannot close the oven door.  Please advise.

    I have the same problem. The door lock sensor works because when you take a small screw driver and push in the sensor that the cam is supposed to activate. The door lock light goes out. This means that either the cam motor, or the temp. sensor is bad. The only way to test the temp sensor seems to be to manually bypass the cam and fool the oven into thinking the door lock isn't locked, and see if the oven will heat. If it heats to a specified temp then the sensor must be working. That would leave the cam motor as the only thing that needs to be replaced. All this on Christmas day so I can't even buy a motor if thats what it needs. Oh well.

We had this same problem. We found that pushing the censor button/switch on the upper left rim of the oven's inside moved the lock and made it capable to unlock, or purchase a pizza pizzaz.

I have had the same problem here is how I fixed it.

Step 1. Dis-connect power to oven.

Step 2. Make sure that oven door is completely closed. (You might have to use a hammer on the metal lock located inside the oven in the to middle when you open the door)

Step 3. Once the oven door is flush with the oven re-connect power to oven (the time and lock light should be flashing)

Step 4. reset clock and push door firmly aginst oven and press the clean buton. Once the clean button is pushed you should hear the motor of the lock at work. and the lock light should be solid not flashing.

Step 5. After about 30 sec with the cleaning going and the lock light solid press the clear button while pressing the oven door aginst the oven, you should then hear the lock motor disengage.

this worked for me I hope it works for you all too.

SOURCE: Oven lock stuck in locked

Hello there:
This is a very common issue with these appliances whenever the cleaning cycle is interrupted this normally is the result.
So what you will need to do is to first unplug the appliance from the wall outlet and leave it alone for 1 hour this allows the internal self reset feature to reset the oven.
once the hour has elapsed plug it back in and you should hear a audiable click within about 5 min or if you have a cancel button press it and you should be able to continue from there okHopethis is very helpful for you Please keep me posted ok
Best regards mike

Oven door stuck on locked!


E1-F5 indicates door lock motor has probably failed.....Self clean on many ovens can be a self destruct mode. Door latch motors, sensor probes and even the electronic controls can be destroyed by this operation. Suggest oven cleaner method next time...

On many freestanding stoves the lock motor is located in the right rear (looking from the front) with a long rod connected to the lock. Remove the motor and unhook the rod from the motor cam. If it is a built-in over, sometimes bending a coat hanger into a hook and sliding from the right side into the lock you can unlock the door.

Oven beeping f1 and f3


Here are the error codes for your range:

F1 Circuit board defective Replace control board F2 1. The oven temp has risen above 665F and the door is not locked or
2. The temp has risen above 965F with the door locked 1. Check oven temp in mode that failure occurred. Replace EOC (Electronic Oven Control) if above limits
2. Check 8-pin connector. Check and replace oven temperature sensor if necessary F3 Oven temperature sensor is open (above 3000 ohms) Check resistance of oven temperature sensor, check for open wiring between oven temperature sensor and control F4 Oven temperature sensor is shorted (below 500 ohms) Check resistance of oven temperature sensor, check for shorted wiring between oven temperature sensor and control F5 Internal watchdog circuit has detected a failure Defective EOC (Electronic Oven Control) F6 Shorted buttons Check push buttons and dome switches on control F8 Logic interrupted (lock motor switch sequence) Check door lock switches and wiring

Most likely problem is the oven temp. sensor. Should check around 1100 ohms at room temp. I would replace that first because it is the easiest and cheaper than an oven control.
