Kenmore Elite 790 flashing 'door locked' and LOC

The door is locked with a flashing 'door locked' and LOC. I can depress the STOP/CLEAR for 3 seconds and the door will unlock. However, the flashing 'door locked' and LOC remain. If I now open the door, 'dr' is displayed along with the other displays. When I now close the door the time replaces the 'dr' but the other displays remain and the oven is non-functional.

SOURCE: my oven says LOC and it is not locked

Today the "Loc" light came on and I can not use
the oven... the oven door does open and the
cook top works ok?
I see two others have the same problem.
I tried to un-plug the electric plug but this did
not re-set it?
This unit is about 7 years old. I can not find
the manual. There is no re-set button anywhere
and I also can not find a model number on back?

SOURCE: Kenmore 790 Oven Locking mechanism problem

I had the same problem. Open the oven door. Press and hold the light switch. You will hear the door lock move back into the correct position. Hope this fixes your problem. This has happened to me twice and holding the light switch always works.

SOURCE: kenmore elite microwave oven displays "Locked" and will not respond

My Kenmore Elite microwave (don't have the model number in front of me) also mysteriously locked its own keypad (we were sitting in an adjacent room, heard a strange beep, and got up to find the LED reading "Locked."). I pressed and held down the Stop/Clear button for ~10 seconds and it returned to normal.

Flashes LOC and won't start

The solution to the "LOC" error depends on many factors, including which Elite model machine you own and the cause of the error. If your machine has an "Options" and a "Select" button, try pressing and holding these for five seconds to clear the locking error. You can also try unplugging the machine for five minutes and then plugging it back in

My Kenmore Elite oven door is locked and I am getting an F93 error message. I have had repairmen here 3 times already to fix the problem. Can you help?

The F93 - Maximum oven door lock time exceeded. First thing to try is holding the clear button down for 3-5 seconds sometimes this unlocks the door and then leaves the loc light still on in this case you would open the door and once again hold down the clear to make the loc light clear. If your unit doesnt have a clear button then you would hold the stop button for the same amount of time as described above. If this doesn't work try shutting off the power at your electrical breaker for 7 minutes this usually causes the control to reset in the unit. If you have any further questions or if this does not work to allow you to be able to open the door and clear the error code message me back for further diagnosis. Thanks

How do you unlock a kenmore elite cooktop?

You can do this by:
Check the oven display to see whether the screen says "LOC." When "LOC" is displayed, the oven lock is activated and the door cannot be opened. You need to make sure it is locked so you do not mistakenly lock the door.

  • 2 Press and hold the "Stop" button on the oven control panel until "LOC" disappears from the display. Some oven models have a button marked "Oven Lock," which should be used instead of the "Stop" button.
  • Lock the oven again by pressing and holding the "Stop" or "Oven Lock" button until "LOC" appears in the display

    Kenmore elite 790.3670 oven door locked

    I held down the clear button for three seconds, it unlocked but still showed the lock button lit. It began beeping over and over. I opened the door and pressed the clear button again for three seconds. It stopped and the oven works just fine now. In fact, I used it right after I got it cleared out.
