Place a hammer handle between the door and the frame at the hinges..
Push on the door, carefully.
This usually works to re-seat the door hinges.

Elite range


This pertains to model 790 Kenmore ranges, comprised of an oven door handle that is mounted on the door's glass.

Be careful when tightening the oven's door handle. Even slightly over tightening would likely result in the glass shuttering, because tightening the screws pulls in and thus presses the handle against the glass. This is a problematic design in my opinion. I'd rather give up on a couple inches in the width of the glass, than be unable to adequately tighten the screws fastening the handle and risk shattering the glass.

Amana range model 770M door won't fully close


Is the door hitting the door lock hook. Or a strike pin hitting the inside door panel. If this is a self cleaning range the door seal is a metal mesh and does hold the door slightly away, this is normal. More info ?

Oven has been cleaning for hours and won't turn off


You will find that the cleaning cycle takes more than 3 hours. Leave it for at least twice that long before you get concerned. When the cleaning is done and the oven is cool it will unlock

Ovendoor not closing for tight seal...


You should feel the door pull closed when you as you lift it and get near the closed position.

There is some spring linkage associated with the hinge pins at the bottom sides of the oven.

I cannot find the oven you indicated, but I did find exploded views and parts list of the topic post oven on the SearsPartsDirect website.

My kenmore elite electric slide in range displayed error and F13 and the oven won't turn on


i phoned Sears about error code f13 on a gas range, and was told to unplug the range for 30 minutes. i think she meant 30 seconds - to reprogram the microchip. i unplugged it for 15 minutes or so, then reconnected, and it worked.

Oven door won't unlock


I had this same issue and consulted the owner's manual. Once on self clean it takes up to 3-4 hours for it to automatically unlock. It is a built in safety feature of the oven.
