What about child lock? Read user manual or try holding button for 10 seconds, might be two at once.
(I bought a $200 control board and travelled 150 kilometers for that one....)

SOURCE: Kenmore 790 Oven Locking mechanism problem

I had the same problem. Open the oven door. Press and hold the light switch. You will hear the door lock move back into the correct position. Hope this fixes your problem. This has happened to me twice and holding the light switch always works.

SOURCE: 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!

It was easier than I thought. I was watching the other postings scroll by and saw the answer, posted months ago, right in front of me. I was missing the last step...pushing the up arrow button.

SOURCE: Kenmore Electric Range Slide in....beeping while not in use

Hard wiring is O.K. and really better because you don't have to fool with the plug and the loss of or poor connection there. You can just turn the power off at the breaker. Without knowing what the F9 error code is, you may have a problem with the board inside the control panel. To get the door open, try to push and hold door closed at the same time. This may loosen the tension on the closer and allow it to open. Pull the lever to open it. If not, try to moderately tap on the door where it latches and it may open then. Next, slide a thin screwdriver into the latch and free it up there. Once the door opens, I believe your oven will work. The oven believes it is in the self clean mode. When you get the door open, turn on the oven with the door open and it should heat. If it does not, check the wiring in the back and you may find that one of the wires has burned off the control switch for the oven. I know this sounds like a lot, but it should save you a tech call and a couple of hundred dollars. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: self cleanning oven - door is lock and I can not get it to open

if you open the lid on your stove,you will probably be able to reset the
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
Try this, and let me know if it worked, I am trying to help someone else with the same problem, that stove is Model, 790

Electrolux oven wont work after cleaning


Hi ja1078063,

I understand you having trouble getting your oven to work after using the self-cleaning mode. Does any part of the oven work? Confirm a fuse is not blown or a circuit breaker tripped. Test the power outlet with a lamp, hair dryer, etc.
Does "Loc" appear in the display if any button is pushed?
The Oven Lockout feature automatically locks the oven door, prevents most oven controls from being turned ON. Press and hold CLEAR/OFF for 3 seconds. A beep will sound. LOC will clear. The "DOOR LOCKED" will continue to flash until the oven door has completely unlocked.

Best Regards,

MY OVEN WON'T HEAT


Hello - Does any part of the range work? I would recommend verifying that a fuse is not blown or a circuit breaker tripped. Test the power outlet with a lamp, hair dryer, etc. Another questions, does "Loc" appear in the display if any button is pushed? The Oven Lockout feature automatically locks the oven door, prevents the warmer drawer and most oven controls from being turned ON. If so, press and hold CLEAR/OFF for 3 seconds. A beep will sound. LOC will clear. The "DOOR LOCKED" will continue to flash until the oven door has completely unlocked. Does the clock display "Sd" or "dddd"? If so, the clock is in sales demo mode. Press and hold the "BAKE TIME" button for 6 seconds to exit sales demo mode. If this does not prove to be successful, contact a professional to have EOC diagnosed and/or to confirm that there isn't a wiring failur

My oven/stovetop isn't turning on, and it says "LOC" on the screen. Its like the stove won't ignite. What should I do?


To lock/unlock the controls: Turn all surface burners off.

Touch and hold the GAS/CONTROL LOCKOUT pad for 3 seconds until the display shows LOC.

To unlock the control, touch and hold the GAS/CONTROL LOCKOUT pad for 3 seconds until LOC disappears from the display.

Used the self cleaning cycle 24 hrs. ago, but the oven door will not unlock. We tried to run it through another clean cycle but we recieve an E1 error.


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.
you may have done a panel lock, so try the first solution.

To Lock/Unlock Control: Before locking, make sure the ovens, Timer and Timed Cooking are off. Press and hold START/ENTER until a single tone sounds and "Loc," a picture of a lock and "START?" will appear on the oven display, about 5 seconds. Repeat to unlock and remove "Loc" from display.

To Stop Self-Clean any time:
Press UPPER OFF, LOWER OFF or OFF/CANCEL. If the oven temperature is too high, the door will remain locked. It will not unlock until the oven cools.

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.
