Question about Kenmore 75620 / 75621 / 75622 / 75624 Gas Kitchen Range

3 Answers

Message says "unlock door", but the door is already unlocked.

We had the oven on "self-clean" and were cleaning the oven. Now that we are finished, we cannot bake. Anytime you push the "bake" button, the panel flashes a message - "unlock door.' The door is already unlocked. We already rebooted the system by shutting off the breaker, and unplugging it.

Please advise ASAP.

Thanks,

The Ramaleys.

Door of the oven will not open after using self cleaning


Hi Virginia.

if you just finished, the door will not usually unlock until the oven is back to room temperature. This is a safety feature to avoid fires or bad burns resulting from the extreme temperatures used during the self-clean.

Gas range oven door with not open


Your self cleaning cycle is running. When self cleaning is running the door is automatically locked and will not unlock until the self cleaning cycle completes or self cleaning is turned off. You should be able to just turn off the self cleaning cycle and the door will unlock. Do not try to pry open the oven door. You will just damage the door and/or the catch.

Oven door locked and will not unlock


hi friend,
step 1
Look for a manual lever to unlock the oven. If there is one, it will probably swing back and forth horizontally, just below the upper edge of the oven door.
  • Step 2 Swing the locking lever, if one is present, all the way to the left. This should unlock the oven. If there is no manual lever to unlock the oven, it may be unlocked using push-button controls.
  • Step 3 Check to see if the oven is in a self-cleaning cycle, or has just completed a self-cleaning cycle. If so, the door will unlock automatically once the oven has finished the cleaning cycle and cooled completely, which may take several hours. You cannot unlock the oven before it has cooled.
  • Step 4 Unlock the "Clean/Off" button. Depending on the brand and model of your oven, the button may display both of these designations or just one. If your oven door is locked, but the oven is not warm and is not in a cleaning cycle, unlock it by pressing and holding the "Clean/Off" button.
  • jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); Who Can Help Sponsored hope this helps u

    How does self clean work


    MOST SELF-CLEAN OVENS RAISE THE TEMPERATURE IN THE OVEN TO ABOUT 850 DEGREES AND BURN EVERYTHING TO A POWDER. THAT IS WHY THERE IS A SPECIAL DOOR GASKET AND IMPROVED INSULATION AROUND THE OVEN LINER. THE AVERAGE CLEAN CYCLE
    TAKES 3 HOURS TO COMPLETE. YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO
    LOCK THE OVEN DOOR (SOME MODELS LOCK THE DOOR
    AUTOMATICALLY) SELECT SELF-CLEAN, AND START.
    OLDER MODELS WITH A MECHANICAL TIMER AND CLOCK REQUIRE SETTING THE START AND STOP TIME.
