Kenmore oven locked after celf cleaning

How do I get my Kenmore oven unlocked after self cleaning mode?  It has been locked since the self cleaning has since ended over 10 hrs ago.  I tried hitting cancel many times and unplugging it for a few minutes I pulled the slide lever to lock when baking to keep my toddler from opening the door. The slide lever was stuck in lock, but was finally able to slide it back to unlock position, but the door was still locked. Kenmore Model 665.4438993 built in 1990.

    I pulled the slide lever to lock when baking to keep my toddler from opening the door. The slide lever was stuck in lock, but was finally able to slide it back to unlock position, but the door is still locked. I have a Kenmore microwave on top and oven bottom built into a cabinet. I cannot find any model number other than when I open the microwave and it is Model 665.4438993 built in 1990. The unit has two manual dial for temperature and settings. I tried to go into cleaning mode but neither the lock light or heat light comes on (the heat light come on in bake mode). I turn off the circuit breaker for a few hours and no luck; tried cleaning again after circuit breaker and no luck.

Be very carefull, the glass on the inside of the door could shatter or might have already shattered.
The only thing you can do at this point in time is disconnect from the mains and leave it of for an hour or so to reset.
seems this is a typical problem when these ovens are set to self cleaning mode

kind regards

Hello,

Unfortunately unless you are willing to disasemble the stove you will have to have a service technician come out to do the repair.

Can't unlock oven door


Put the oven in self clean mode, it will lock the oven, once the self clean mode has started turn the self clean mode off, give it a second and the oven should turn off. Same thing just happened to me and it worked.

My oven door will not unlock after cleaning


It will take some time for it to unlock. The lock after self cleaning is controlled by temp. The temps during self cleaning are over 900 degrees and after self cleaning it will take several hours before the oven lock will release. Don't try to force. If after 3 hours it has not unlocked you can try disconnecting power for 2 minutes then reconnecting to activate the self cleaning motor assembly. Good luck and thanks for using Fixya

Cant unlock self clean oven door


Door lock motor has probably failed.....Self clean on many ovens can be a self destruct mode. Door latch motors, sensor probes and even the electronic controls can be destroyed by this operation. Suggest oven cleaner method.

Kenmore oven locked after celf cleaning


I had the same problem today. After I cleaned my self cleaning oven the cycle went back to normal but the oven door would not open even though the screen was clear and didn't read locked. I held the stop button for 3 second, I don't remember what the message said on the screen but I held the stop button in again for 3 seconds and the screen said locked then I did it again and the screen said door and the oven opened. I don't know, maybe it was just sheer luck it's worth a try. I'm happy.
