Question about Kenmore 79012 / 79014 / 79019 Gas Kitchen Range
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.
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.

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
