    I have the same problem. Our Kenmore wall oven door is locked and I have tried different combinations on the keypad to no avail. I have switched power off overnight hoping for a complete reset and nothing. The model number is 911-4742991. Can you help?

  • Viretarmis Mar 10, 2008

    I put the burner on, heard a beep and looked at the control panel. The "lock" indicator was shining red and the overn door remains locked despite unplugging/resetting etc. HELP!

    I have a Kenmore 790.3670 and the oven door is locked and I can't get it open as well. Nothing seems to work. it's 3 weeks out of warranty! Sears is of no help.

  • Frank P Scot Jun 03, 2008

    My son put the stove onto clean by mistake (instead of broil). He closed the door because "door" was flashing on the display then realised he'd hit the wrong button so did a cancel.



    Door is now locked. Tried doing a short clean to trick it - but "door" flashes for 10 seconds, stove buzzes, it clicks out of clean mode and stays locked...

  • alanthony Jun 09, 2008

    Me to!! I have a 79095413203 I attempted the self clean button, the lock door button is lit, screen beeps will flash F9, can not get the beeping to shut off regardless of unpluging time ie. 1 week!!! I can open the door although it states it is locked!! Help!!!

  • nolens2 Jun 27, 2008

    Had the same problem, dicovered that if you press and hold clear for three seconds, it will still show as locked, but will allow you to open the door. It started to beep and became very annoying. So, what I discovered was that if you open the door, leave it open while pushing clear for three seconds again, it will reset and be back to normal. I was able to use the oven immediately with no problems.

I held down the clear button for three seconds, it unlocked but still showed the lock button lit. It began beeping over and over. I opened the door and pressed the clear button again for three seconds. It stopped and the oven works just fine now. In fact, I used it right after I got it cleared out.

Had the same problem, I held the clear botton for 3 seconds and it allowed me to open the door. As the door was open, I held the clear button for three seconds until an error message came up. I quickly closed and opened again and it clear it up. Back to normal.
Hope this helps.

I had the same thing and with some sheer luck, I was able to open the door. Don't ask me how but I started pressing buttons. One of them was holding down on the STOP button. It will beep and flash "Door Locked" and the display will show LOC. I tried this a couple of times before even trying to open the door only to realize the door was unlocked. Hope this helps. After awhile, the beeps will go away and the door stays unlocked.

I held the "Stop" button down for 3 seconds: this unlocks the oven (give the latch a few seconds to release the door), but the lock icon is still displayed and the burners are still inoperable.....but the oven works!

    We just realize that the reason the Burners were not working, is because they were locked. To unlock the burners, hold down the "CLOCK" button for 3 sec. The lock icon stays lit until both are unlocked (Kenmore Elite c970).

There is a button sequence, my 2 yr old could find it, but we just unplug it and the computer resets. I;m not giving kenmore any more money for this exoensive oven.

Posted on Mar 15, 2009

We had the same problem and the company would not offer any solutions. Thanks to this site we pushed clear for 3 seconds and could open the door. When we tried to push clear again for 3 seconds so that the beeping would be cleared, an error message popped up. We started over and once the door was open, we closed and opened it quickly again, somehow fooling the door. We heard a click and the problem was solved.

    The Kenmore Gas Range cost big money! Sears is aware of this problem and still continues to sell this product without informing the consumer! I'm very upset! I too am having this problem and I bought this oven after you all had this problem..,.However no one at the store said ANYTHING about this! I even asked if any customers have had ANY problems with this oven that I should know about.
    This was OBVIOUSLY a FRAUDULENT sale, as I know now! Please, lets get the word out as customers, and lets stop the big companies from screwing us!!!!!

  • billysmith Nov 28, 2010

    I have the same problems twice in 2 years, We are treated like a fool by Searsand Kenmore. First time, I phoned up Sears, fwait for the techician for 2 days. and he would not fix the problem, and I have to wait for one week for him to fix it. so I have to eat out for the whole week, now I have the same problem again, I am so upset and the clean button is a money making machine for Kenmore and Sears.

  • billysmith Nov 28, 2010

    I will not buy a Kenmore product and Sears again

  • mrfixit1970 Nov 29, 2010

    A Kenmore could be made by LG, GE, Whirlpool, etc. Sears doesn't make anything. They put a Kenmore label on someone elses stuff. FYI.

MY OVEN WON'T HEAT


Hello - Does any part of the range work? I would recommend verifying that a fuse is not blown or a circuit breaker tripped. Test the power outlet with a lamp, hair dryer, etc. Another questions, does "Loc" appear in the display if any button is pushed? The Oven Lockout feature automatically locks the oven door, prevents the warmer drawer and most oven controls from being turned ON. If so, press and hold CLEAR/OFF for 3 seconds. A beep will sound. LOC will clear. The "DOOR LOCKED" will continue to flash until the oven door has completely unlocked. Does the clock display "Sd" or "dddd"? If so, the clock is in sales demo mode. Press and hold the "BAKE TIME" button for 6 seconds to exit sales demo mode. If this does not prove to be successful, contact a professional to have EOC diagnosed and/or to confirm that there isn't a wiring failur

How do you unlock a kenmore elite cooktop?


You can do this by:
Check the oven display to see whether the screen says "LOC." When "LOC" is displayed, the oven lock is activated and the door cannot be opened. You need to make sure it is locked so you do not mistakenly lock the door.

  • 2 Press and hold the "Stop" button on the oven control panel until "LOC" disappears from the display. Some oven models have a button marked "Oven Lock," which should be used instead of the "Stop" button.
  • Lock the oven again by pressing and holding the "Stop" or "Oven Lock" button until "LOC" appears in the display
