Here is what you do when the convection oven door locks automatically. Where the stop/clear button is, you will see a lock symbol that has a number 3 on it. hold the stop/clear button down for 5 seconds and it will unlock you convection oven.

SOURCE: My Kenmore Oven door won't unlock

Try throwing the electrical breaker off and then on to see if it will reset. If not you could put it through another cycle to see if its a jammed armature. However either the door lock motor armature is jammed or the motor is the problem or the solid state did not recognize the cycle was over. If you open the breakers and remove the covers to access the mounting screws you can work the unit out of the wall. Be sure to place some heavy towel or card board on the ground to keep from damaging the floor. Watch placement of your hands and depending on your fittness level you may need a hand pulling and replacing the unit. Test the electrical supply to ensure that its not energized. Then try disengaging the lock armature. IF YOU OPT TO REMOVE THE LOCK THEN THE UNIT SHOULD NOT BE USED IN THE CLEANING CYCLE, EVEN THOUGH THE UNIT SHOULD NOT FUNCTION WITH THE LOCK DISENGAGED, YOU NEVER KNOW ABOUT ELECTRONICS AND IF IT RAN IN THE CLEANING CYCLE SOMEOEN COULD OPEN IT AND GET BADLY BURNED. SO DONT DO IT. You should be able to order the parts needed on line at this website. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action?intcmp=xsite_Sears Best o Luck :?) DRRXR

F5 - E7 Self clean latch will not unlock

Remedy:

1. If door latched:

  1. Disconnect power from unit.

  3. Replace door switch.
  4. Re-apply power.
  5. Press and hold any key down for 1 minute to clear F5 failure code from memory. F2 will appear. Press CANCEL and observe for 1 minute to ensure operation is correct.
2. If door not latched:
  1. Disconnect power from unit.
  2. Check wires and connectors from control to latch switch, then from latch switch to control. If no damage to wires and all connectors okay, proceed to step C.
  3. Repeat steps A and B for door switch.
3. Measure door switch (door open = switch open small low voltage terminals). Replace switch if defective.
4. Measure latch switch (unlatch = switch open, CAUTION - oven light contacts are closed). Replace switch if defective.
5. If corrections are made in any step, reconnect power to control. Press and hold any key for 1 minute to clear R failure code from memory. F2 will appear. Press CANCEL and observe for 1 minute to ensure operation is correct.
6. If failure remains, disconnect power and replace control.

The oven has been heating irregularly, and the food has cooked unevenly.


The fan is likely for convection cooking. And it sounds like you might be used to cooking on convection mode. Try changing it.

Hi Guys,

What model have you got? I have one that I have owned for well over a year now with absolutely no problems. In fact I would have to say for the $119 I paid for it, it has been the bargain of the century so far.

My model is CAS048 and to preheat it is very simple. You set the press the convection oven button to set the temp you want (i.e 180 deg) and push start. The oven will operate until it has warmed up at which time it will beep 3 times. Open the door and put your food in and set the time you wish it to cook and you are away!

P.S, mine will shut off automatically after a few minutes of reaching it's set temperature if I don't open the door and set the timer on it, so it pays to have your food ready or close to ready when you set it to preheat as it warms up quite fast.

What is wrong if the oven is not cooking food evenly?


If it is not a fan assisted oven, then I would say that one of the side elements has gone, u will have to locate and check it,or put the oven for a couple of mins, then check the elements they should both be hot.
Hope this helps.

Thanks.

Food is not cooking evenly.


The best way to check your door gasket is use a strip of paper, shut it between the door and the oven. pull on the strip you should feel just a slight resistance do that on several areas around the door. other than that, not enough info for more, i'm assuming it is just uneven browning, just make sure you have your pan centered in the oven, or if you have convection use that it generally gives you the best results in baking, once you get use to it

Amana Convection oven not controlling temp


I have just checked the baking guide in the manual and have found that it may not be us after all. (Maybe this is why they telll us to read the whole manual. Well, I never have) According to the cooking time for Baking, the range is very extensive. For example, an angel cake at 350 could take from 28-50 minutes, buscuits at 375-400 could take 8-16 minutes, layer cakes at 350-375 could take 25-40 minutes, pound cakes at 325-350 could take 45-70 minutes and fresh pies at 400-450 could take 35-60 minutes. Basically, the baking directions on the box means absolutely nothing to use Amana oven owners. We have no choice but to cook our food or baked goods until they are cooked, whenever that may be. :) Linda
