Question about Kenmore Ovens
The oven door on my Kenmore electric range (model #911-4658811) locked following a brief power outage and will not open. I have tried touching and holding the cancel button, cutting power to the range, and waiting several hours. Nothing so far has worked. There are casseroles in there I need to get out. Is there anything short of breaking it that will open the door? Help!

Well... I found the reason why this happened. We had a mouse and now don't have a mouse. I took off the back panels of the oven after unplugging it and located the motor that controls the lock. Well, a mouse decided to rest there and was electrocuted causing a short of the motor. Since the motor is out of commission I discovered that I could move the circular pull into a position that moves the locking latch to open allowing the oven to be back in working order.

We have a Jenn-Aire self cleaning oven. The cleaning latch would only open if BOTH knobs for the cleaned oven are set to cleaning. Then the latch opened right away.
