Your oven uses a motor lock latch #316028101 around 100 dollars the motor or the linkages to the motor are most likely bad . the control board could be supplying the voltage to the motor is which case the board would be bad if the are no sensors telling it to lock the door If you are not pretty handy with a schematic and a meter I would suggest you call someone. F3 can be a thermal fuse or maybe the wrong resistance on the over sensor

Oven door is locked out - Sears no help


      1. Step 1 Read the display on the electronic oven controls, where the clock and timer normally appear. If the display reads "CLN" while the "Door Locked" light is on, the Kenmore range is in self-clean mode. When the Kenmore range is in self-clean mode, you must stop the cleaning process before the door will unlock.
      2. Step 2 Stop the self-cleaning process by pressing and holding the "Stop/Clear" button for three seconds. The oven lock should disengage after three seconds. In some cases, a malfunction between the control panel and the locking mechanism prevents the door from unlocking.
      3. Step 3 Hold the light switch for several seconds if the "Stop/Clear" button fails to unlock the range door. Engaging the light switch for several seconds resets the entire locking mechanism and overrides the "Stop/Clear" button.

Oven door lock engaged while NOT in cleaning mode with door open


The question isn't that clear as to what your problem is but try unplugging the stove or turning the power off to the stove at your main fuse/breaker box and then turn it back on. You should then have the oven door unlocked

Door locks and F9 fault codes


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.

How do I unlock the oven door?


If the lock is engaged, is the oven in a self cleaning cycle? If so, cycle power to the oven, that should cancel the self cleaning cycle.

Reply back if that worked or not and I'll try to help you further.

Oven door that wont come unlocked


sounds like you have a latch/lock issue. the unit seems to think the door is still currently locked, preventing proper operation, i would try to see if you can locate the door/light switch and manually trip it with your hand(turning off light). then while keeping depressed activate the self clean mode again, the machine will try to engage the lock/latch, as soon as it does then cancel it and it will return back to a normal resting location. you must keep the light switched pushed in order for this to work correctly

Locked oven door


Look for a button or sensor which the door would press when closed.
If you find it hold it down for a minute, this should reset the lock
if it doesn't it may do when you let go

Oven door won't unlock


I had the same problem on my Kenmore Electric Range. Door would not unlock. Tried pressing "Off" for multiple seconds, but still would not unlock. No error codes. Clock was displaying normally. Finally decided to try running it thru the self cleaning operation to get it to cycle thru locking and unlocking the door. When I started self clean, the door automatically went thru the auto lock and "locked" appeared in the display. I then hit "Off" to clear it and stop the cleaning cycle. The door then unlocked as normal!

We had the same problem as well. everything locked up and the display board went dead. It turned out to be the thermostat in the back. Once that was replaced everything worked ok. . The serviceman told us to pull the oven out from the wall when self cleaning. It is because the heat disapation and air circulation from the oven is very poor when running at maximum temperatures and this burns out components. First check the termostat, which is a $20.00 item.
