Question about Kenmore 40494 / 40495 / 40499 Electric Single Oven

1 Answer

Older oven stuck on Clean and door is locked.

We have an older Kenmore oven can't find the model number bt it is one where the burners are old school anyways we needed to clean the oven so we turned it on clean at 1pm this afternoon and the door has been locked, the clean light is on and it is really hot. Have tried unplugging the oven and tugging on door, flicking the fuse in the fuse box, turning it off and nothing works. Please help as I have 2 young children and the like to touch the oven door and I do like to cook.

    Panel states door locked but it isn't. I think the latch is in the lock position but can't clear it. Unplugged to no avail. I'm going to run through the clean to see if at the end it will unlock automatically. Any other recommendations? I wasn't cleaning it I was cooking and opened then closed door to check food when this happened.

How do I fix an oven lock on a self cleaning Kenmore built in dual ovens? The oven locked up during a clean oven cycle and will not unlock.


Some ovens will not open unless the clean button or knob is set to Clean. Make sure you are trying to open in correct direction. Try turning it on and off and press down on the latch while trying to open. I would not use a crow bar, this can be done. If you unplug it and wait for it to reset after about 30 seconds it might let go. Just keep playing mine stuck once and it was because I flipped the clean switch off an turning it back on ready to start the cycle pulled back on it and it opened. Oh I remember my neighbor had a older style dial clock and she set the clock for a certain time to stop and the door would not open until she ran the clock to that time spot. Hope this helps. I wish I knew how to open it from the electrical side but I dont.

How can we calibrate the oven temperature?


Older oven or newer oven? Old school ovens have a screw in the hollow stem yall can tweak. The new ovens have a themobilian_2771.jpgsensor.
If your oven has a sensor it should read around 1100 ohms at room tempt. If it is out of spec, shorted to frame or open then the fancy shocktronic oven control won't know what the oven temp is.
If you want a great answer post a make and model.

I have an older model double oven by Kenmore - probably 15-18 years old. I was baking bread in foil three days ago and the oven set on bake 325 degrees. (I had been cooking a roast in it for several hours...


Hi.

the oven may have locked in consequence of the self cleaning cycle.

After unplugging, allow the oven cooling down for few hours.

If the is still locked, then the high temperature generated in self cleaning cycle may have damaged temp probe, door latch, or electronic control.

Parts must be tested to discover the fault.

Call Kenmore at the number listed on the owners manual.

Regards.

Kenmore oven door will not unlock, it is an older model and i have lost the manual. i tried to activate the self clean but i couldn't remember how all that ended up happening is that the door has locked...


Look around the console area for a button that says push to unlock. If it is there push the button in while unlocking the door. Some models may require that you also place the stove into self clean then canceling it out thus enabling you to unlock the door. Without a model number off stove tho it is all just guess worjk as all stoves are not the same.
