Question about Kenmore 79012 / 79014 / 79019 Gas Kitchen Range

I accidentally turned the dial to 'cleaning' instead of off.

It's locked and won't unlock and there is food inside.

    My chicken nuggets are sadly stuck in the oven - it has completely cooled down but the door still won't open. Once in a while it makes a strange noise - but it's not cleaning - if it ever even was - but the door is stuck and I'm at a loss as what to do. Any other suggestions?

Ge profile oven lock button won't go off


  • 1.Press the "Clear/Off" button on the control panel to reset the oven. This will clear the lock setting and unlock the door.

    2.Allow the oven to cool to room temperature to avoid turning the lock on again during this heating cycle.

    3.Reset the oven to the temperature you require to finish cooking by pressing the correct temperature control on the control pad.

    or

  • 1.If your GE Profile microwave won't turn on, unplug it, then plug it back in. A power outage may have occurred due to a power surge. Check your home's fuses and circuit breakers.

    2.Set the clock of your GE Profile microwave. Certain models will not operate until you set the clock. Select the "Clock" key and type in the correct time.

  • 3.Hold down your microwave's "Off" button. You may have accidentally hit the control-lock feature on your GE Profile microwave. Hold down the "Off" button for three seconds to turn the lock off.

  • 4.If the sensors of your GE Profile microwave are not working correctly, remove the food from the machine. If the sensors detect food-surface temperatures over 200 degrees Fahrenheit, it will not work properly until the area cools down.

  • 5.Contact GE Support if you are unable to resolve the issue on your own. Call the GE Support hotline or browse the help library on the GE website. You can also schedule a service visit on GE's website.

    My fridge is FREEZING food


    There should be a dial on the top part in the inside of your refrigerator or somewhere inside there that you can turn that dial down and it will not freeze your food.

    locking your phone will help stop accidental dialling. if you don't lock your phone all you have to do is touch the screen and your ready to press buttons if you lock it then you have to unlock before you can press them, so in turn to acccidently call somebody it would have to unlock itself in your pocket.

    The lock will not release after cleaning


    This is GE's trouble shooting advise:

    Range - Oven Door Won't Unlock After Self Clean

    The Oven Door has been Locked Accidentally:

    • If no food or utensils are in oven, put it into a short self-clean cycle (1-2 hours).


    • If there is food in the oven, let the oven cool to room temperature and try to unlatch the door.


    • With electronic ranges there is a small chance that turning the circuit breaker off for a few minutes and turning it back on can release the door. latch to the "off"


    • Note: Do not force the latch at anytime!

    Door Will Not Unlock After Cleaning:

    On models with mechanical latches:
    • Once the oven is cool after a self-clean cycle (approximately 30-90 minutes), slide the latch over to the left.(Some older models have a latch release button that must be pushed in while sliding the latch over.)
    Note: Some models with oven Set and Temperature knobs must have those knobs set in the Clean position before the latch can be moved to the left. If your door won't unlock, try turning those knobs back to Clean, then slide the latch over.

    If the above suggestions do not work try the following to unlock your door:
    1. Disconnect power to range for 30 seconds.
    2. Reconnect power and see if door will unlatch.
    3. If door does not unlatch, and you do have food in the oven, wait for oven to cool completely and try again. If it still will not open you will need service.
    4. If door does not unlatch, and you do not have food in the oven, set the oven up to clean for 1-2 hours.
    5. Wait approximately 30 minutes and try to unlock the door.
    6. If the door unlocks, the control has reset itself and there should not be any other problems.
    7. If the door will not unlock or if you would like to schedule a service appointment, please contact GE Consumer Service at 1-800-432-2737 or schedule a service appointment on-line.
    Note: Under no circumstances should you ever force the door or latch open.

    The oven door won't open, and there is still food in it. We have a Whirlpool Super Capacity 465 Model, amd need assistance immediately.


    Hello. It is possible that the oven accidentally got turned to the self-clean function. Check to see. If it is set to self-clean, the door lock activated. In order to unlock the oven has to be taken off of self-clean and then it has to cool down to room temperature before it will unlock. Joe
