Stopping the self-clean function after starting in erro

The self-clean function on our Kenmore oven was pushed in error. The door is now locked and we cannot stop the cycle. The oven has a fying pan and baking racks inside. We have turned the power off at the breaker but can't figure out how to stop the cycle so the door will unlock.

You don't have a cancel clean button on it? If not, you may have a reset button in the back of the oven. Otherwise, you may have to let it "run the cycle". Hopefully, you don't have wooden/plastic handles on your frying pans.

Did the self cleaning. Now it has a F 3 code & door will not unlock.


  • Check warranty to make sure it has expired.
  • Disconnect power for 30 seconds and see if oven will reset the electrical lock.
The following link describe for Kenmore several procedures to disengage the electrical lock securing the door.

It is unfortunate that during the self cleaning cycle the stress levels at the elevated temperature premature failure appears to occur.
How to Clear the Oven Lock Mechanism on Kenmore Stove

The F3 error is most likely the temperature sensor that protrudes into the oven near the top usually on the left. Don't be confused there can be two probes that enter the oven. One is the over temp like not to exceed type of switching device and the other is the actual sensor that maintains the temperature at the set point.

There is a procedure to replace this sensor from inside the oven. I have had only limited success doing this repair in ovens from the front. Newer ovens are equipped with a plug that is easier. In all cases ensure that the plug is pushed through away from the oven wall. In older ovens I have had to pull the built in ovens to accomplish the work from the back to ensure a good connection using wire nuts... The sensor in the second photo does not have a plug so small wire nuts that will fit through the back of the oven are used.

This is a Door lock malfunction. you will need to replace the door lock mechanism. it is faulty.

Test the door lock mech for its operational value to be sure.if the door mech test is good, replace the control(ERC/Clock)

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!
