Question about Kenmore 40494 / 40495 / 40499 Electric Single Oven
Locked door - Kenmore 790.4671 - was in self-cleaning mode. The oven started beeping, a F10 error code is flashing, and the door is locked. How do you get the door unlocked?
More than likely the tco thermal cutout fuse has opened during cleaning and now the ovens latch motor cant get power to open,its under the top cover where the surface elements are located its a frequent thing with all ovens/stoves

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.

SOURCE: Locked oven door
try turning off the circuit breaker, resetting the power sometimes trips the self clean latch to operate, youll need to push in the door light switch.(it will have to think the door is closed to operate)
