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.

None of above worked for me. But, gave me a clue. I pressed the Stop/Clear button for apprx 10 sceonds. the "door locked" flashed for 5 seconds and then cleared and the door unlocked. Panel worked fine after that.

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.

Kenmore Elite micro/convect model 64289. Convect not heating...F1 error


F 11 code. it is a touch pad error.
if you just cleaned the control panel it may have water in the panel causing a key to stick.
If after a day or 2 it hasn't dried out - then you will need to replace the touch pad.

Kenmore micowave


IF IT IS THE KEYPAD THAT IS LOCKED, ONE OF THE TOUCH PADS SHOULD BE HELD FOR 5 SECONDS TO UNLOCK THE
TOUCH CONTROL.YOUR INSRTUCTION MANUAL WILL TELL
YOU WHICH PAD TO HOLD. IF NOT AVAILABLE, TRY EACH PAD, ONE AT A TIME. HOLD EACH PAD FOR 5 SECONDS.
IF NO RESPONSE, TRY THE NEXT ONE. WHEN YOU FIND THE ONE THAT UNLOCKS THE CONTROL, WRITE IT DOWN
FOR FUTURE REFERENCE. THAT PAD WILL ALSO LOCK THE CONTROL WHEN HELD FOR 5 SECONDS.
