My kenmore W&R locked to start the cleaning process and never turned on, but now won't open. It's been 4 hours.


Verify that the Whirlpool oven is connected to its power source. The oven may sometimes lock down if experiencing a power surge or similar electrical problems. Additionally, check that a fuse hasn't been blown in your home's fuse box. Some older homes may not have the proper wiring to support a high-powered appliance such as a Whirlpool oven. If you are not sure if your wiring is sufficient, consult a local electrician.
  • Check to see if the Whirlpool oven's Control Lock has been turned on, a safety mechanism designed to lock the oven and disable its keypad and display controls. A padlock symbol will be displayed in the corner of the Whirlpool oven's front display panel if it is locked. The oven will not unlock itself on its own even if it is disconnected from its power source. To disable, press and hold the "3" button on the keypad for five seconds until the padlock icon disappears.
  • See if the Whirlpool oven is engaged in its self-cleaning cycle. During the self-cleaning process, the stove will lock its front door and will flash "OVEN LOCKED" on its front display. This is to prevent users from accidentally opening the oven and burning themselves during the high-heat segment in the cleaning process. If you must open the oven, first stop the process by pressing and holding the "OFF/CANCEL" button on the stove's control panel. If the oven remains locked, wait for the internal temperatures to decrease. The locking mechanism is temperature controlled and will not unlock until internal temperatures have cooled.
  • Contact Whirlpool's service department if your Whirlpool oven remains locked and you cannot troubleshoot it or open it. All Whirlpool self-cleaning ovens are covered for five years after the original purchase date. Call the warranty team for assistance by dialing toll-free (800) 253-1301 in the United States, or (800) 807-6777 in Canada. Be prepared to give the oven's model number and purchase date

    The display shows LOC - but the door is open - cant turn on the oven


    Hello & Welcome to FixYa
    After reading your question the problem seems to be with the control which got locked. To unlock the controls press and hold the STOP/OVEN LOCK button for 20 seconds. If the problem returns then check the door and make sure it is fine, after this you can unplug the unit for 15 minutes and then try to reset it again. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

    Old kenmore built in oven wont unlock


    When I turn on my Maytag performa using the "bake" function, everything looks ok on the display, however the temp. never rises above 100. I've tried "bake" and "convect", and neither one work. "Clean" doesn't work either. The oven will lock, and display shows that it's heating up, but temp. never rises.
    However....."broil" feature works just fine.
    Please help.

    This is a Door lock malfunction. you will need to replace the door lock mechanism. it is faulty.

    Test the door lock mech for its operational value to be sure.if the door mech test is good, replace the control(ERC/Clock)

    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.

    The lock motor may have failed. On many freestanding stoves the lock motor is located in the right rear (looking from the front) with a long rod connected to the lock. remove the motor and unhook the rod from the motor cam.
