Self cleaning range - door is locked, food inside, and self clean malfunction


Here are a couple of remedies that may work:
1. Disrupt the power to the stove for at least 5 minutes. If the clean cycle has been on to heat the oven at all, wait until you are certain it is completely cooled down. Patience is a virtue. There should be no lights on the panel. This resets the stove and stove errors the majority of times. I usually pull the plug at the rear of the stove. It gives me a chance to clean the floor while waiting. Re-power and determine if the if the clean cycle cancels. If not, go to 2.
2. Push the door in and press "Cancel". There is a push button switch (not visible when the door is closed) that is also a part of the self clean circuit. This switch may not be fully depressed. If it does not cancel, press the "Bake" button and press "Start". If it continues on the clean cycle, allow it to run for approx. 5 minutes and then enter "Cancel". If it does not cancel, retry the #1 waiting longer than 5 minutes and repeat #2 sequence.
3. The door can not be disassembled when it is locked closed. The lock mechanism is at the top of the door in the center and approx. 2" down.. The latch operates from left (open) to right (lock). It may be possible to get a slim jim type device to disengage the latch. A piece of scrap spring steel pallet banding may work for this You may have to depress the "Cancel" while doing this/. Hopefully, your range cooperates and you do not have to try 3.

Let us know if any of these work for you.

Hi, The door of the oven of my kenmore cooker locked itself and the code 'F9' flashes alternatively with the code 'dr' can you please give me some help to fix this issue? Thanks


Hi, the F9 code indicates there is a problem with the door lock.

Try disconnecting the power to the range for 10 seconds and reconnecting. Open the oven door and hold the door switch plunger in while you try these things. Put the control into clean for 5 minutes then cancel clean. You must hold the door switch plunger in for the 5 minutes.

Try canceling the clean cycle without putting the control into clean.

Self cleaning oven directions


Press the self-clean button.  The panel becomes blank(---), then press the up arrow( ^ ).  The panel will appear 3:00 (indication for the duration of self-cleaning). The oven will lock on its own and start the self-cleaning.  Good luck, ya'll!
