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. If it is a built-in over, sometimes bending a coat hangar into a hook and sliding from the right side into the lock you can unlock the door.

Did a cleaning on the stove. in middle of cleaning the stove started to smoke so they hit the off button. Now the stove wont open. How do we get the stove oven door to open?


All you have to do it wait and it will unlock itself. It just gets very hot so the stoves are made to seal themselves until cool!

Kenmore oven door will not unlock, it is an older model and i have lost the manual. i tried to activate the self clean but i couldn't remember how all that ended up happening is that the door has locked...


Look around the console area for a button that says push to unlock. If it is there push the button in while unlocking the door. Some models may require that you also place the stove into self clean then canceling it out thus enabling you to unlock the door. Without a model number off stove tho it is all just guess worjk as all stoves are not the same.

My oven was accidentally locked while the door was opened and I do not know how to unlock it. I do not have an owners manual. I got the stove second hand. how do I unlock it so I can use my oven?


I unplugged the stove. Checked to make sure my motor fuse was still good and plugged in. I am not an electrician but I can read. Plugged it back up, and all was well.

After self cleaning cycle, oven door will not open. the lever won't move.


in the rear of the stove there might be a wax motor that has melted not allowing the stove to be unlocked. or a stuck switch.
all too common with self clean ranges.
unplug stove, remove rear panel and begon looking for any type of heat damage, or any switches that may have been stuck closed.
i see this at least once per week

How do you unlock a whirlpool stove if it locks manual


I think you mean if it locks automatically not "manual". There should be small print next to one of the buttons that includes the word "lock". Hold this button down until the indicator goes out.

Jenn-Air stove locked


After the lock indicator light goes out, move the door lock lever to the left. The oven door can now be opened. Turn the selector and temperature knobs from clean to off AFTER THE DOOR IS UNLOCKED. If the temperature knob is turned to off BEFORE the door is unlocked, the door will not open. Forcing the lock will damage the lock mechanism. If this should happen, return the temperature knob back to CLEAN, unlock the door, THEN turn the temperature knob off.
