Re: the lock is locked

It should unlock as soon as the temp drop low enough if not you could put it into self clean again wait a couple of seconds then cancel it in the hopes the motor just got stuck otherwise your motor broke and you would have pull the oven out of the wall and disasemble it enough to manually turn the motor

How do I lock door for self cleaning

Some ovens have a latch handle between the top of the door and the actual range top that you have to push sideways to lock. May also be a lock button you have to push in while moving the latch handle.
If you don't see the latch handle, The lock system may be the hidden type that should lock automatically when set to clean. Once the oven is set properly for clean, a motor will latch the door by itself. After the oven gets close to clean temperature, the latch gets locked out and the door will not open until the clean cycle is complete and oven cools down to normal room temperature again. This is a safety feature so you can't open the door while the oven is at clean temp (about 850 degrees). Hope this explains enough. If door never auto latches, could be a problem with the latch/lock system and motor.

Oven model 790.49072400 sn#NF52117116 is beeping at me, with the door locked. I can't unlock it. All happened when I was trying to set the timer. clear/reset is right next to door lock.


There might be many reasons for the same. First, Unplug the same for few minutes and then Turn it back ON. Check, if the problem is solved.

If not, let me know along with few details :-

1. Do you see any error message ?
2. Is there any Self Clean option in this Model.If yes, have done that before all this happened?
3. Is this a permanent or intermittent issue?
4. What have you done to fix this?
5. How old this oven is?
6. Do you hear any humming noise?

Let me know, once done.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

First press and hold the cancel/off button for 10 seconds.
If that does not work you have a bad thermal switch due to excessive heat buildup. Possibly a bad fan motor.
The 2 thermal switches are located on top of the oven behind the control panel.

Kenmore oven locked after celf cleaning

I had the same problem today. After I cleaned my self cleaning oven the cycle went back to normal but the oven door would not open even though the screen was clear and didn't read locked. I held the stop button for 3 second, I don't remember what the message said on the screen but I held the stop button in again for 3 seconds and the screen said locked then I did it again and the screen said door and the oven opened. I don't know, maybe it was just sheer luck it's worth a try. I'm happy.
