Oven door will not unlock

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!

SOURCE: Kenmore 790 Oven Locking mechanism problem

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.

The F9 code indicates there is a problem with the door lock.

Try disconnecting the power to the range for 10 seconds and reconnecting. Open the oven door and hold the door switch plunger in while you try these things. Put the control into clean for 5 minutes then cancel clean. You must hold the door switch plunger in for the 5 minutes.

Try canceling the clean cycle without putting the control into clean.

The lock will not release after cleaning


This is GE's trouble shooting advise:

Range - Oven Door Won't Unlock After Self Clean

The Oven Door has been Locked Accidentally:

  • If no food or utensils are in oven, put it into a short self-clean cycle (1-2 hours).


  • If there is food in the oven, let the oven cool to room temperature and try to unlatch the door.


  • With electronic ranges there is a small chance that turning the circuit breaker off for a few minutes and turning it back on can release the door. latch to the "off"


  • Note: Do not force the latch at anytime!

Door Will Not Unlock After Cleaning:

On models with mechanical latches:
  • Once the oven is cool after a self-clean cycle (approximately 30-90 minutes), slide the latch over to the left.(Some older models have a latch release button that must be pushed in while sliding the latch over.)
Note: Some models with oven Set and Temperature knobs must have those knobs set in the Clean position before the latch can be moved to the left. If your door won't unlock, try turning those knobs back to Clean, then slide the latch over.

If the above suggestions do not work try the following to unlock your door:
  1. Disconnect power to range for 30 seconds.
  2. Reconnect power and see if door will unlatch.
  3. If door does not unlatch, and you do have food in the oven, wait for oven to cool completely and try again. If it still will not open you will need service.
  4. If door does not unlatch, and you do not have food in the oven, set the oven up to clean for 1-2 hours.
  5. Wait approximately 30 minutes and try to unlock the door.
  6. If the door unlocks, the control has reset itself and there should not be any other problems.
  7. If the door will not unlock or if you would like to schedule a service appointment, please contact GE Consumer Service at 1-800-432-2737 or schedule a service appointment on-line.
Note: Under no circumstances should you ever force the door or latch open.

I have a frigidaire mef352bgwd electric oven- after a power outage the lock engaged (door open) and now blinks continually. Tried shutting off breaker for 30 minutes- no change.


There is a pin that tells the oven the door is open, you need to push it in an hold it. It is pretty stiff, you can't use your bear hand. It will be in the upper left of where the door closes.

Upon recovery from a power outage, the oven door on a Kenmore model #911455881C engaged the automatic door lock, and it will not release. I have cycled the power off and back on; have tried starting the...


I traced the problem to a faulty motor in the automatic door latch. In an effort to get the range operable again quickly, I removed the latch and got the door open. However since I just removed the latch and did not rotate the cam on the motor, the electronics did not "know" that the door latch was open, and therefore it still would not allow the oven to bake or broil. To remedy this I had to completely disassemble the motor and rotate the cam 180 degrees so the the sensors would recognize an open latch.

Older Kenmore oven- door locked by itself


We had a quick power outage and when the power came back on it locked our older (1991) Kenmore electric oven model # 40889 / 40881. Went throought the manuel and nothing pertains to this problem. We have turned off the circuit breaker and turned back on, but nothing seems to unlock the door. Any suggestions would be GREAT!!!!!!!

Pf code on frigidaire professional series free standing range


"PF" indicates the electronic control detected a Power Failure.
This could have been caused a brief power outage OR may be an indication that the connections to the oven, either at the stove or at the plug are loose.

Electric Kenmore Ultra Bake Oven


I finally found my manual to the range, and to change from celsius to fahrenheit press the BROIL button for 5 seconds. A tone will sound, and the temperature should switch to Fahrenheit.

As far as the code PF 5ab--it could be PF Sab which means the power went out during Sabbath mode. Try pressing and holding TIMER OFF for 5 seconds. If that doesn't work, then open the oven door, press STOP/CLEAR, press both the HOUR "up" and "down" arrow pad at the same time and hold for 5 seconds, "Sab OFF" should appear. Press START to accept the change, then close the oven door.
