We have a kenmore 970-628810. the right hand heat dial is turned to "clean" first, then the left hand dial turned to "clean" cycle. Oven door locks immediately and the timer registers 3:00 but only hums and nothing else happens.

Look for a button or sensor which the door would press when closed.
If you find it hold it down for a minute, this should reset the lock
if it doesn't it may do when you let go

Had to loosen the lock -- loose enough that the door opened. Only thing that worked. Of course then door wouldn't shut! Cut off the lock and will have to replace.

I suspect the timer is involved in this process. It can be set to clean automatically. You need to set the complete time at least 2 hours after start.

OK, when you go to use the "Self Clean" function, what happens is special door "Interlocks" engage to absolutely ensure they door can in NO WAY come open during and for some considerable time later. You see the "Clean" is heating up to so,e absurd temperature, about 700 -900 Degrees! This basically BURNS everything up. So when this happens, the Doors stay looked, if you hit cancel and it DID NOT do anything, then try removing from Power, totally for a while and reconnect. If it did do the clean, then often this procedure burns out the thermistor inside, and then the doors stay closed too. You will have to check, which one. Also it may have "Glitched" the controller. Hopefully removing from power will work.

The E1- F5 error is a door lock error.
The control (TIMER) has likely failed in this instance - BUT...
Sometimes when you disconnect power to a range and reconnect it the electronic range control gets confused.
You should disconnect power again for 15 seconds and reconnect and see if that helps.
If it doesn't cure the E1- F5 error hold the bake button in until E0- F2 appears in the display.
This is the error for a stuck button on the keypad and is the way to clear the memory of the electronic range control.
Sometimes these work, but if the control has failed it won't make any difference.
