Kenmore elite oven lock

Seems this is a common problem recently (bad batch of touch pads?) My Elite oven spontaneously locked up and won't unlock. Pad unresponsive. Un plugging ineffective

    By 'locked up' do you mean the door locked shut, or the controls give no response?



    Answer: Yes to both. Some controls (clock and timer) respond. Others ("Clear", "lock") do not.



    Problem happened spontaneously. I did not use the "self clean". I will check the contacts but fear that the touchpad is defective/cooked.

    Thank you for your recommendations and response, Bromikl

    Same thing happend to me with my Kenmore Elite oven. Somehow while cleaning the touch pad I must have hit the clean button. It took me days to figure out what was wrong. To fix it I went to the oven and hit the clean mode and let it begin. I then hit the stop button for 3 seconds and it flashed for about 15-20 seconds and it shut off. I then hit the stop mode for 3 seconds to activate the lock and then again for 3 seconds to unlock and it worked! I have no clue how it happened but my 2 1/2 year old could have something to do with it also! Hope this works for you.

Kenmore Elite Glasstop model lower oven door lockup - we found that if you reset the time on the control panel, the oven door unlocked, and the problem was cleared.

By 'locked up' do you mean the door locked shut, or the controls give no response?

Did you recently perform a self clean cycle? Sometimes during the self clean, a high temp thermostat blows, and the door will not unlock.

If it's the controls, you can try cleaning the contacts where the touchpad plugs into the clock. You may need to replace the touchpad. The clock could be bad, too. Sometimes the touchpad and clock are sold as one piece.
Unfortunately, there's no good way to determine which one it is without changing parts until the symptoms disappear.

Yes, the clock and touchpad are one piece. I replaced the ciruit board for $185. (Pull out old, plug in new) Now works fine.

I have a Kenmore Elite double oven, model 790.48123801.(4 years old). My wife attempted to operate the self-cleaning feature and 29 seconds later an F90 error message appeared, the oven began to beep


Oven door latch error code. The oven door latched but the control board did not receive a signal that the door was latched.
The only time that the latch is used is during the cleaning cycle.

How to unlock Kenmore oven

Oct 18, 2014 | Kenmore Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

Oven door locked


Many Kenmore ovens have a control lock that keeps the oven door locked even when the self-clean cycle has not been in use. This feature is meant to prevent children from opening the door or using the controls on the oven. To cancel the oven lockout, push and hold "Stop" for three seconds. Wait 15 seconds for the oven door to unlock automatically.

Reset
After verifying that the oven lockout feature has been released and waiting at least an hour after a self-clean cycle, if the oven door remains locked, try to reset the oven. Disconnect power to the range, and wait 30 seconds. Restore power and try again. If the door remains locked, disconnect the power and try to reset the circuit breaker or fuse. Contact Kenmore if the door remains locked after both attempts at a power reset at 800-827-6655.

I have a Kenmore Oven and the tempeture display is reading F1. The oven is beeping and it has locked the oven door.


Hi jimmyholaway,

The F1 error code description is a bad touch pad or clock (ERC). You need to replace the control board (also called ERC or clock) to fix the problem.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

How do I set the oven to self clean


The oven door must be closed and all controls set correctly for the cycle to work properly. After a Clean Cycle You may notice some white ash in the oven. Wipe it up with a damp cloth after the oven cools. If white spots remain, remove them with a soap- filled scouring pad and rinse thoroughly with a vinegar and water mixture. These deposits are usually a salt residue that cannot be removed by the clean cycle. If the oven is not clean after one clean cycle, repeat the cycle.
You cannot set the oven for cooking until
the oven is cool enough for the door to unlock.
While the oven is self-cleaning, you can
touch the TIMER/CLOCK pad to display the time of day.
To return to the clean
countdown, touch the COOKING TIME pad.
If the shelves become hard to slide,
apply a small amount of vegetable oil or cooking oil to a paper towel and wipe the edges of the oven shelves with the paper towel.

Using the self-cleaning oven.

How to Delay the Start of Cleaning

Make sure the clock shows the correct time of day. If your model has a latch, latch the door. Touch the SELF CLEAN pad. Using the + or or the number pads, enter the desired clean time. Touch the DELAY START pad. The earliest start time you can set will appear in the display. Using the + or or the number pads, enter the time of day you want the clean cycle to start. Touch the START pad. On models without a door latch, the door locks automatically. The display will show the start time. It will not be possible to open the oven door until the temperature drops below the lock temperature and the LOCKED DOOR light goes off. The oven shuts off automatically when the clean cycle is complete. When the LOCKED DOOR light is off, slide the latch handle to the left as far as it will go and open the door. If your range does not have a latch, the door will unlock automatically. n The words LOCK DOOR will flash and the oven control will signal if you set the clean cycle and forget to close the oven door or forget to latch the door on models with a latch. n To stop a clean cycle, touch the CLEAR/OFF pad. When the LOCKED DOOR light goes off indicating the oven has cooled below the locking temperature, unlatch the door (on models with a latch) and open the door.

Kenmore elite double oven control panel


I just purchased the kenmore elite double oven with the touch pad control centre. Has anyone had any problems with the control panel on these ovens?

Kenmore Elite Range/Oven problem.


We had this problem as well, our's locked and we were not able to unlock it.

We found that holding down the stop/clear button on he bottom right of the key pad for 3 consecutive seconds releases the lock.

The locked oven wording will blink for about a minute and then the oven is released completely.

So frustrating...I accidently hit the option while cooking. Talk about panic. I needed to use the oven.

Oven door won't unlock


I had this same issue and consulted the owner's manual. Once on self clean it takes up to 3-4 hours for it to automatically unlock. It is a built in safety feature of the oven.

Lighting the oven


Control Lockout (on some models)
Your control will allow you to lock out the
touch pads so they cannot be activated when
touched or cleaning the glass panel.
To lock the controls:
Touch the 9 and 0 touch pads at the
same time for 3 seconds until the
control beeps twice. The display will
show LOC continuously and the time
of day if not blacked out.
NOTE: All cooking and timing functions will be
cancelled when locking out the control.
To unlock the control, touch the
9 and 0 touch pads at the same time
for 3 seconds until the control beeps
twice, and LOC will be removed from
the display.
NOTE: Some models have a Control Lockout
pad. Touch and hold it for 3 seconds to
lock/unlock.
Gas/Control Lockout (on some models)
Your control will allow you to lock out the
surface burners, oven burners and control
panel so they cannot be activated.
To lock/unlock the controls:
Turn all surface burners off.
Touch and hold the Gas/Control
Lockout pad for 3 seconds until the
display shows LOC ON.
To unlock the control, touch and hold the
Gas/Control Lockout pad for 3 seconds
until the display shows LOC OFF.
When this feature is on and the touch pads
are touched, the control will beep and the
display will show LOC ON.
 The control lockout mode affects all
controls. No controls will work when this
feature is activated.
 The adjustment will be retained in memory
after a power failure.
