1 Answer

Locked oven door

I have a kenmore oven that was short cycled while on clean mode. Since then, the door has remained locked. I have been able to open the door with a wire hanger, but the lock remains in place. The LED still reads locked and beeps regularly.
Any suggestions?

Try turning off the circuit breaker, resetting the power sometimes trips the self clean latch to operate, youll need to push in the door light switch.(it will have to think the door is closed to operate)

Hi.

the oven may have locked in consequence of the self cleaning cycle.

After unplugging, allow the oven cooling down for few hours.

If the is still locked, then the high temperature generated in self cleaning cycle may have damaged temp probe, door latch, or electronic control.

Parts must be tested to discover the fault.

Call Kenmore at the number listed on the owners manual.

Regards.

When baking my oven door is not locked is it supposed to be?and if so how do we lock it.


The locking of the oven door is a safety feature used only during automatic self cleaning cycle, this is because temperatures during the self clean cycle can reach upwards of 600+ degrees creating a dangerous situation if the door was opened, it will remain locked after the self cleaning cycle is complete until the oven interior temperature is below 100 degrees. So no the door is not normally locked during the bake cycle. Good luck !

last time that happened to me it was the control board. It still thinks it's too hot inside the oven. Either that or you have a fauly door lock. Is the door still locked if not, that would be normal because it cooling down It's kind of like a safty.

Kenmore oven locked


Hello dktshopping,
I know you probable don't want to hear this but in you circumstance, I think you would be better off to contact a repair professional. Those oven door locks are meant to keep the door from opening during the oven's self-cleaning cycle. They are both mechanically and temperature controlled so that the door can not be opened when the oven is 950 degrees. It sounds to me as though something is not releasing to allowing the locking mechanisim to disengage from the door even though the lever is in the unlock position. The unit will probably have to be taken apaprt to remedy the problem. Good luck.

Self-cleaning gas oven


Door lock motor has probably failed.....Self clean on many
ovens can be a self destruct mode. Door latch motors, sensor
probes and even the electronic controls can be destroyed by
this operation. On many freestanding stoves the lock motor is located in the right rear (looking from the front) with a long rod connected to the lock. remove the motor and unhook the rod from the motor cam. Sometimes bending a coat hangar into a hook and sliding from the right side into the lock you can unlock the door.
