Question about Kitchen Ranges
After self-cleaning the oven. The "Locked" readout on the control panel keeps blinking. Door opens, light is on, but when I press any mode on the control panel it reads "door." It allows me to initiate the self-clean cycle but the oven doesn't kick into the self-clean cycle. I've unplugged it and plugged it back in after a few minutes and it remains in the same status. Did the control panel get fried when the oven went through the self-cleaning cycle? If not, what might be the issue. I thought perhaps it was the thermal fuse, but there doesn't seem to have one on this model.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

SOURCE: Oven door won't unlock
I had the same problem on my Kenmore Electric Range. Door would not unlock. Tried pressing "Off" for multiple seconds, but still would not unlock. No error codes. Clock was displaying normally. Finally decided to try running it thru the self cleaning operation to get it to cycle thru locking and unlocking the door. When I started self clean, the door automatically went thru the auto lock and "locked" appeared in the display. I then hit "Off" to clear it and stop the cleaning cycle. The door then unlocked as normal!

I've had the same problem and have had the thermo-protector switch replaced four times. After the last time I was so ********** I wrote to the CEO at Whirpool/Kitchen Aid in Benton Harbor, MI with my complaint. Today I received a call from an extremely nice lady in his office who said that they were sending me an updated kit for repair free of charge. The part number is 9759243. She offered that this was a known problem but was limited to just one production run - my luck!
If you are having this problem with your KGSA906PSS write to the CEO at Whirlpool!

Happens alot dont feel bad , self clean mode runs the elements at 500 deg. to cook off everything possible , what happens is the cabinet gets to hot and heats saftey temp. fuses until they go out and they are not resetable. they are always located in different areas of ranges but usaully in the back. you can ohm them out to check them if you have a meter.let me know if you have any other questions.

Unplugged the stove and turn off the gas.Take the back off the oven and replace the thermostat. It's super easy. Before you buy the part call kitchen aid... this is a known problem. They will say the parts are not free and try to give you a discount. But if you continue to argue , they'll send it for free.

1, Controloptionsmay be changedby se-
2. Currentoptionwillappearin thedisplay.
4. PressCANCELpadtosetthe displayed
The LOCK is option 4 change the OPTION from 4 to 9.
9 is the factory default settings.
This should work. However.... there is the possibility that the unit had performed a self clean function. If you just completed a self clean cycle it can but up to 1 hour AFTER the cycle before you can open the door or use the oven as the range must cool down and cycle a thermostat before it wil work again.
There is also the possibility that the door lock has not completely retracted. If you can get it to start a self clean cycle.... after 1 minute press cancel and the lock should retract. (I know you said won't do anything) I am hoping that after you reset the options from 4 to 9 that you might be able to do this.
