Kenmore self cleaning slide in range door will not unlock

I have a Kenmore self cleaning slide in range. The model no. is 911.36665. I cleaned the oven and now the door will not unlock. I have tried to hold in the clear button as well as unplug it and plug it back in but neither has worked. Do you have any suggestions before I call for repair?

we have a sears kenmore model and this is how we do it. remove everything from stove including the racks, close oven door, slide door lock latch to the right till it locks the door. turn knob to clean. when it is done cleaning it will turn off by itself. on some models the door latch will not slide open when done. just wait for it to cool if this is the case. it should tell on the touch pad on stove the hours that it takes to clean it. good-day !

How do i unlock after self cleaning my kenmore elite electric slide in 30"


Hello,Give it time for the oven to cool if it has just completed the clean cycle. The door is not to unlock if the oven is still too hot. If the oven is cool and the door will not unlock,program and start another clean cycle and after about two minutes press cancel/clear/stop and wait for another minutes to see if the door will unlock.If the door doesn't unlock i recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your range.
Thanks

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.

Kenmore oven door will not unlock, it is an older model and i have lost the manual. i tried to activate the self clean but i couldn't remember how all that ended up happening is that the door has locked...


Look around the console area for a button that says push to unlock. If it is there push the button in while unlocking the door. Some models may require that you also place the stove into self clean then canceling it out thus enabling you to unlock the door. Without a model number off stove tho it is all just guess worjk as all stoves are not the same.

Kenmore oven locked


Hello dktshopping,
I know you probable don't want to hear this but in you circumstance, I think you would be better off to contact a repair professional. Those oven door locks are meant to keep the door from opening during the oven's self-cleaning cycle. They are both mechanically and temperature controlled so that the door can not be opened when the oven is 950 degrees. It sounds to me as though something is not releasing to allowing the locking mechanisim to disengage from the door even though the lever is in the unlock position. The unit will probably have to be taken apaprt to remedy the problem. Good luck.

Self cleaning oven directions


Press the self-clean button.  The panel becomes blank(---), then press the up arrow( ^ ).  The panel will appear 3:00 (indication for the duration of self-cleaning). The oven will lock on its own and start the self-cleaning.  Good luck, ya'll!
