Hi,
it sounds like the child lock may be on...
if there is a key on the pad that says "child lock" press and hold that for 30 seconds or so until it unlocks, if there is no key that says "child lock" try doing that to the "end/stop" key or the "start" key.

Turns on when door opened


There is an power interlock inside the oven that breaks the power connection to the magnetron when the door is open. Most likely, something is stopping the switch from opening.

Check for a small plastic probe on the door that may have broken off inside the oven keeping the circuit made. Otherwise, open the oven and see is some foreign object is keeping the connection made or if the interlock needs to be cleaned out so it can function.

WERE IS MODEL NUMBER ON KEMNORE RANGE?


The model numbers on most Kenmore ranges will be located on a nameplate along the oven door, or lower drawer opening. Some models may have this information on the back of the operator console.

If this question is in reference to a microwave oven, the model number will be located along the oven door opening, or inside the oven cavity along the upper portion on either the left or right hand side.

If you need further assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

DOOR SHOWS OPEN BUT IT IS NOT


After self cleaning the range the door won't open....
The oven door lock needs approximately 1 hour to cool down before the oven door can be opened after a self cleaning cycle has finished. If the lock does not open after the oven has cooled down, you can try....1) Unplugging the range or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Plug the range back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and try moving the door lock lever or opening the door. 2) Set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for 15 minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever or opening the door.


Hope this may help;
