Re: kenmore door locked
Try pushing and holding the door shut. Then moderately tap on the door where the latch is and it may come loose. Usually it is mechanical and not electrical here. Could also be if you have a self cleaner on it, that it is reading that you are cleaning the oven. If the first thing does not work, then turn off your breaker for about 15 seconds and then back on. Sometimes it may reset itself and put it back in working order.

Set selector knob it to clean, push in and turn the Stop time ahead. Wait for the motor to complete latching the door. turn selector to "Off" and wait for motor to unlatch door. If it's stuck you can either manually unlatch it from above or rear or use a coathanger wire made into a hook to catch and release the door "hook"
I know you probable don't want to hear this but in you circumstance, I think you would be better off to contact a repair professional. Those oven door locks are meant to keep the door from opening during the oven's self-cleaning cycle. They are both mechanically and temperature controlled so that the door can not be opened when the oven is 950 degrees. It sounds to me as though something is not releasing to allowing the locking mechanisim to disengage from the door even though the lever is in the unlock position. The unit will probably have to be taken apaprt to remedy the problem. Good luck.
We had the F4 problem and called Sears repa. They sent someone out. The guy opened the panel above the bottom oven (we have a double oven) and hit a reset button - then charged us $75. This has worked on several occasions (my husband did it after that). But then that didn't work and Sear's told us it was the electronic panel which they replaced twice. Now it's (F4) happened again on the top oven only on a brand new electronic panel. So I guess it's the heat sensor this time.
