    Did you get the door to unlock by shutting the power down for several minutes?

My kenmore oven model c970-692622 is lock.what is the step of unlock.


Select "clean" function and observe whether or not the lock attempts to reset itself, if no movement occurs- you will need a lock latch assembly. If the latch just circles round and round, then you need one of the microswitches in the assembly... Frigidaire Range Stove Oven Micro Switch 5304440026

Self cleaning range - door is locked, food inside, and self clean malfunction


Here are a couple of remedies that may work:
1. Disrupt the power to the stove for at least 5 minutes. If the clean cycle has been on to heat the oven at all, wait until you are certain it is completely cooled down. Patience is a virtue. There should be no lights on the panel. This resets the stove and stove errors the majority of times. I usually pull the plug at the rear of the stove. It gives me a chance to clean the floor while waiting. Re-power and determine if the if the clean cycle cancels. If not, go to 2.
2. Push the door in and press "Cancel". There is a push button switch (not visible when the door is closed) that is also a part of the self clean circuit. This switch may not be fully depressed. If it does not cancel, press the "Bake" button and press "Start". If it continues on the clean cycle, allow it to run for approx. 5 minutes and then enter "Cancel". If it does not cancel, retry the #1 waiting longer than 5 minutes and repeat #2 sequence.
3. The door can not be disassembled when it is locked closed. The lock mechanism is at the top of the door in the center and approx. 2" down.. The latch operates from left (open) to right (lock). It may be possible to get a slim jim type device to disengage the latch. A piece of scrap spring steel pallet banding may work for this You may have to depress the "Cancel" while doing this/. Hopefully, your range cooperates and you do not have to try 3.

Let us know if any of these work for you.

What about child lock? Read user manual or try holding button for 10 seconds, might be two at once.

My kenmore W&R locked to start the cleaning process and never turned on, but now won't open. It's been 4 hours.


Verify that the Whirlpool oven is connected to its power source. The oven may sometimes lock down if experiencing a power surge or similar electrical problems. Additionally, check that a fuse hasn't been blown in your home's fuse box. Some older homes may not have the proper wiring to support a high-powered appliance such as a Whirlpool oven. If you are not sure if your wiring is sufficient, consult a local electrician.
  • Check to see if the Whirlpool oven's Control Lock has been turned on, a safety mechanism designed to lock the oven and disable its keypad and display controls. A padlock symbol will be displayed in the corner of the Whirlpool oven's front display panel if it is locked. The oven will not unlock itself on its own even if it is disconnected from its power source. To disable, press and hold the "3" button on the keypad for five seconds until the padlock icon disappears.
  • See if the Whirlpool oven is engaged in its self-cleaning cycle. During the self-cleaning process, the stove will lock its front door and will flash "OVEN LOCKED" on its front display. This is to prevent users from accidentally opening the oven and burning themselves during the high-heat segment in the cleaning process. If you must open the oven, first stop the process by pressing and holding the "OFF/CANCEL" button on the stove's control panel. If the oven remains locked, wait for the internal temperatures to decrease. The locking mechanism is temperature controlled and will not unlock until internal temperatures have cooled.
  • Contact Whirlpool's service department if your Whirlpool oven remains locked and you cannot troubleshoot it or open it. All Whirlpool self-cleaning ovens are covered for five years after the original purchase date. Call the warranty team for assistance by dialing toll-free (800) 253-1301 in the United States, or (800) 807-6777 in Canada. Be prepared to give the oven's model number and purchase date

    F90 code flashing and i cant reset it


    F90 Maximum oven door unlock time exceeded.
    F91 Maximum oven door unlock attempts exceeded.
    F92 Maximum oven door open time exceeded.
    F93 Maximum oven door lock time exceeded.
    F94 Maximum oven door lock attempts exceeded.


    1. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Check the wiring between EOC & Lock Motor Micro Switch.

    2. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Replace the Motor Door Latch assembly if necessary.

    3. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Check for binding of the Latch Cam, Lock Motor Rod & Lock Motor Cam.

    4. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Check to see if Lock Motor Coil is open. If open, replace Lock Motor Assembly.

    5. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Lock Motor continuously runs - if Micro Switch is open, replace Lock Motor Assembly.

    6. (F92, 93 & 94) Check oven door Light Switch - if open, replace Switch.

    7. If all situations above do not solve problem, replace EOC.


    F90 is a door lock code, Try this...
    unplug the range.
    wait 1 minute.
    turn the range back on,
    then while holding in on the oven door.
    start another self clean.
    wait 2 minutes.
    then cancel the self clean.

    do not release the door until the door lock light goes out.

    switch manually (the latch).with the lid up its located toward the front
    behind the safety latch.(by no means attempt to force,bypass,or disable this
    switch)this is a safety feature designed to protect you from the high temps
    generated by the cleaning cycle.hope this helps.thanx for using fix-ya

    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!
