Question about KitchenAid KESC307 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Oven door locked?

We don't have a clue on how this may have happened. The over door is locked and the display says "door locked". We are unable to release the locked door. We can use the glass burner tops but that is all that is operable at this time. The manual does not address this problem in the trouble shooting pages.
The door feels it is not totally locked as I can move the door maybe a quarter inch at the most but it still remains locked?
Please advise.

    I have the same problem with a Whirlpool Gold range. After a self-cleaning cycle was finished, an error code came up on the display and started beeping..after hitting the CANCEL/OFF button, it cleared, but 60 seconds later it came up again, and started beeping again. This went on until I could no longer stand it, and just unplugged the range. Have not been able to unlock the door.

I suggest that you try and use the manual to run the self clean cycle for the shortest time if still not call serviceman .Rember to wait the time it takes to COOL DOWN before it will unlock

We have a Kenmore Electric range. It has a cook top with burners integrated underneath, not exposed. Apparently, the "oven door is LOCKED". We are unaware how it became locked and how do we unlock the...

I had the same thing happen to me and could not figure out what happened. Although I do not recall exactly what I had todo but it was a simple fix. Google "keeper oven door is locked. How do I get it to open?" Or something like that. You should be able to find the answer there. I also seems like maybe closing the breaker to the stove for a couple of minutes may also reset the oven, but I am not sure about that. Good luck

I have a frigidaire professional, I am unable to close the oven door. I have a effortless oven rack systems

Good Afternoon Nancy,

I understand that you are unable to close your Frigidaire range door, model# FPGF3081KF. I would check to make sure that there is nothing blocking the door from closing. Make sure that the racks are in fully, and that the hinges on the door are not hindering the door from closing. If everything is fine there, make sure that the door locking mechanism is not engaged. If the locking mechanism is engaged, what you will want to do is press and hold down the oven lockout button for 5-10 seconds, while the door is still open. Give it about 15-30 seconds and the lock should retract. If none of these suggestions help, I would contact either the manufacturer or a local authorized technician for further assistance.

-Best Regards-

I accidently put the lock on my oven.Now the lock will not come off. Please help


The oven door and controls can be locked to avoid unintended use of the oven. The oven doors and controls cannot be locked if the oven is in use, or the oven temperature is 400°F (205°C) or above.

To lock the control panel and both oven doors:

  1. Press and release Cancel.
  2. Press and hold upper oven Cancel and Cook & Hold for 3 seconds. “Off” appears in the display and “Lock” flashes while the controls and oven doors lock. Both oven doors lock. “Lock” remains lit in the display.
To unlock the control panel and both oven doors:

Press and hold upper oven Cancel and Cook & Hold for 3 seconds. “Off” disappears from the display and “Lock” flashes while the controls and oven doors unlock.

Hello kmgtsg,

You said, The door on my frigidaire stove model # FEF389WJCC locked and we are unable to get it open. We weren't self cleaning the oven so I'm not sure what happened. Any suggestions how to fix it? We did try turning the breaker off and that didn't help.

Did you leave the breaker off for 5 minutes or just flicked it off and on?

It may be a faulty door Latch
The door latch consist of a micro switch and solenoid. Once the door is closed and the latch handle.

But first try to deactivate the door lock

Oven Lockout
To activate the Oven Lockout feature:
1. Press and hold for 3 seconds
2. After 3 seconds a beep will sound, LOC will appear & "DOOR
LOCKED" will flash in the display. Once the oven door is locked
the "DOOR LOCKED" indicator will stop flashing.
To reactivate normal oven operation:
1. Press and hold for 3 seconds. A beep will sound. LOC will
clear. The "DOOR LOCKED" will continue to flash until the oven
door has completely unlocked
2. The oven is again fully operational.

Let me know if these procedures work for you!!
Please remember to leave a rating!

Oven wont work everytime we push bake E1 and F1 appear

Is the display showing E0-F5?
The Self-Cleaning latch may be interfering with the oven door causing the Self-Cleaning cycle not to work. If the oven door is open and will not lock, press Stop/Clear to clear the display, press and hold the door switch plunger (located in the upper-right corner of the oven front), and the door latch will unlock. If the oven door is closed and locked, press Stop/Clear to clear the display; apply pressure to the upper-right corner of the oven door, and the door will unlock.
Is the display showing E"#"-F"#," for example, E1-F2?
You will need to schedule service.

Locked oven door

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
