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

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.

Need help to unlock the cooktop


You will have to hold the lock button down for 3 or 5 seconds for it to unlock. If this doesn't help, it could be a stuck key pad or a problem in the circuit board.

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.

How do I unlock my Dacor cooktop


When your Dacor cooktop is locked, there will be a red light lit above the Dacor emblem located under your cooktop controls.

If you see this light, pressing the Dacor emblem for three seconds will turn it off and unlock your range. Pressing it again for three seconds will again lock your range and turn the light back on.

Another fun thing about that Dacor emblem is that if one or more of your elements are lit, tapping it twice in quick succession will turn off all elements.

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?

How to start the self-cleaning cycle in jenn-air sce30600?


An electric cooktop uses a great deal more electrical energy than a gas cooktop. The electric portion of the gas cooktop runs the electronics (clock, timer, ignitor, oven light, etc.), and these are small electrical loads. An electric cooktop uses more electrical energy cooking a batch of, say, pasta sauce, than a gas cooktop would normally use in a month or two. There just isn't a good comparison as there is such a broad difference in the electrical usage of the two units.
