How to Unlock the Cooktop?

After successfully using the self-cleaning feature, I find I cannot "unlock" the cooktop.  In other words, gas does not come to the burners.  The owner's manual tells me to be sure to unlock the cooktop after all is cool...but it does not say HOW?!  I am confused.

    Actually, my girlfriend showed up and showed me what to do.  The manual instructs you to turn off the lock feature, but does not say how.  Here's how:  Press the cookout lockout button (a picture of a lightbulb is on the button, since this also controls the oven light), and HOLD IT DOWN FOR 10 SECONDS.  Pressing the button once does not work.  You have to hold it down.  Thereafter, the lockout light will go off, and the gas will flow again to the burners.  Simple.  If the manual had included this instruction, all would have been solved.

The manual should tell you how to lock; do the same procedure to unlock. I cannot see your repyl due to some tech issue w/ the site, so it may be a day or so before I can reply again. Please leave feedback for me if appropriate. Thanks

I cannot unlock the cooktop on my Kenmore gas range. There is no lockout button, only Select Clean and Stop/Clear. Neither one of which unlocked the cooktop. There is a little padlock looking symbol t


I'm sorry, but the model number given in the question is either wrong or incomplete. Please check that model number. Usually, on Kenmore ranges, you can find the model # and serial # on either the left or right side of the storage or warmer drawer. Open the drawer and look on the frame of the range for a label. On a few ranges, the label is affixed to the frame between the oven door and the drawer.
As an alternative, please post a clear picture of the control panel.

Directions on how to use the self-cleaning feature of my Kenmore Ultra Bake Self Cleaning Super Capacity oven


First take out the racks (unless they are coated with the same porcelan coating as the oven interior). Press the Clean or Self-Clean button. Press up or down arrow key - 3:30 will show in display which represent time in hours and minutes. You can press the up arrow key for more time, or the down arrow key for less time, but usually the default time is good. Then just press Start. The door will lock and the oven will turn on. In 3 1/2 hours the oven will turn off, but the door won't unlock for another hour.

From the manual:

To turn the Cooktop Lockout Feature OFF:
1. Press and hold (_ until "CLO" appears (Figure 3). Continue holding
until a second beep sounds (after 3 seconds). I_1will disappear from
the display indicating the cooktop may be used normally (Figure 4).
Note: Starting a Self-Clean cycle will automatically turn ON the Cooktop
Lockout feature. The cooktop will remain locked until the Self-Clean cycle
has completed and the oven door has unlocked. If a power failure occurs
after the Cooktop Lockout has been activated, you must turn OFF the
Cooktop Lockout feature before being able to use the cooktop features
again.

This may be a silly question but, did you just try turning off the circuit breaker for a couple minutes to see if it resets itself when you flip it back on?

Stove cleaning


The filter in the jenn air can be run through the dishwasher. clean the outside of the oven as best as you can before you start the self clean cycle. NEVER!!! use oven cleaner inside a self cleaning oven. or on the gasket. . You can use a degreaser or oven cleaner on the cooktop on any stainless steel, procelain or chrome surface. Don't get oven cleaner on painted or aluminum surfaces. Rinse off very well.

Self Cleaning Feature


First... yes you should remove the racks before using self cleaning. Broil pan too if it is in there. Second... the doors will lock by themselves, you don't need to do anything there. typically it takes about 3 and 1/2 hours to go through the cleaning cycle and yes you can use the cooktop while it's cleaning.
