Question about Ovens
I tried holding down the clock button, opening the oven and pressing the up and down button, turning it off for more than 72 hours, holding the cook time and delay start button. What else can I do?
This is the Sabbath mode. If you can get the owners manual. this should tell you how to get this shut off. The owners manual is usually downloadable from the customer support page on the company website.

I had the same problem. It occurred when it was in a cleaning cycling. I fot the F3 Fasult and also the door remained locked. I let it cool down overnight and killed the power at the circuit breaker. I turned the power on and got a F3 alarm and the door remained locked. I took our the screws holding the control panel and pull it out far enough to give me access to the locking mechanisim. I took out the screw holding the locking latch to the motor. With the latch loose, iwas able to get move it out of the door lock. With the door now open I was able to get to the temperature sensor with was held with two sheet mmetal screws. The screw were impossible to get out, so I ground off the heads with a Dremel tool. I couldn't get the sensor wires out. So I pulled the unit out to get at the back sde. I cut the old sensor wires and was able to get in the hole to remove the screws with a pair of needle nose pliers. I installed a new sensor and with wire nuts attached the sensor wires to the computer wires. Make sure that you work the insulation in the hole to plug it back up. Put the oven back in and installed the sensor in the oven with two small sheet metal screws. . refasten the locking latch to the locking latch motor. turn on the power and everything was fine. I ohmmed out the old sensor and it was 180 ohms at room temperature. The replacement checked out at a 1000 ohms in accordance with the schematic for the control. By the way, the schematic was neatly folded on the control panel when I removed it I used a Whirlpool sensor Part No. 12001656 which was half the price of a Kenmore sensor. +

Hi I am Vortash the cooling fan must be controlled by a thermostat , it appears that it has a problem on it and is not shutting off .
They are usually normally open contact switches that are on the top or the side of the oven ,they heat up close the connection and turn the fan on . yours sounds as if it is sticking . Other ovens are controlled by a rheostat a long tubed thermostat that goes to a main control consul on the oven , it controls the fan and responds to what the stat tells it .
It may be this controller is not turning the fan off afterwards , my suggestion is that unless you are electrically trained you get the help of a service engineer to check your oven out .... regards Vortash

It is in Sabbath mode, used for Jewish holidays. Anyway, hold the cancel button for 3-5 seconds and it should revert back to normal operating mode. It will still bake in Sabbath mode but will not display anything due to the laws regarding observation of the Sabbath
