I have a Kenmore oven model # 665.95024100 and used the logi-clean cycle and now the door will not open. This happened before when I used it and I called the repair service to fix it but I cannot remember...


Articles on the internet suggest not using the self cleaning feature of modern ovens, becuase fuses and other parts may easily burn out due to the high temperature.

Door locked after cancelling self clean option


Open the door. In the upper left corner, press and hold the door switch (the one that controls the inside light). Start a self clean cycle and wait for lock motor to engage. When the lock stops moving it should be in the unlocked position. Press cancel to stop the self clean.

If you need more assistance let me know.
Good luck!

Oven Door Locked


the oven door does lock during self clean, otherwise it will not work. however, the door is supposed to unlock after the oven has cooled. if it is still locked, turn the oven to self clean and wait about a minute and then hit cancel and see if the door unlocks. if not, there may be a probelm with the door lock mechanism.
