    It doesnt appear the door is closing snug enough to press the switch in....when I press lock the latch pulls the door closed completely

    The door of my oven does not close all the way. It closes at the bottom but not at the top, so the light stays on, but more importantly the heat escapes.

    I have the same problem, after only 1 year. Had the sears repair man out and was told i need new hinges.

    Our range door does not close tight so there is discoloration of the exterior at the top end of the door.  The light does turn off, however.  The bottom of the door closes tight, the top does not.


    We have door hinges cannot be adjusted differently for the door to close properly.

If your locking it to make the light goes off it sounds more like the light switch on the oven needs to be replaced

Oven on lock. How do you unlock


most likely the door locked due to an overheat situation. It's a safety feature on most ovens made today. It may be caused by a fan motor not running properly thus allowing area above oven cavity to sense extreme temperature, blockage in air flow pattern, or a bad temperature control.
Whatever the cause, it's best to have a tech take care of this issue for you to prevent danger to you and your family.

I continue to get code F11 on my Kenmore Elite Gas Range Oven and therefore, I am unable to unlock / open my oven door. I have pressed and held down the STOP button as well as the oven light button.


Your model number should be much longer than 790 30 Open drawers and doors to look for the whole model number around the frame.

With the whole model number you can get more information at Sears Parts Direct. There are parts diagrams and user manuals and you can order parts.
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/



This site gives instructions for repairing F11 and recommends checking the temperature probe and tells how to do it.

Code f90 indicated


F90 Maximum oven door unlock time exceeded.
F91 Maximum oven door unlock attempts exceeded.
F92 Maximum oven door open time exceeded.
F93 Maximum oven door lock time exceeded.
F94 Maximum oven door lock attempts exceeded.


1. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Check the wiring between EOC & Lock Motor Micro Switch.

2. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Replace the Motor Door Latch assembly if necessary.

3. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Check for binding of the Latch Cam, Lock Motor Rod & Lock Motor Cam.

4. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Check to see if Lock Motor Coil is open. If open, replace Lock Motor Assembly.

5. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Lock Motor continuously runs - if Micro Switch is open, replace Lock Motor Assembly.

6. (F92, 93 & 94) Check oven door Light Switch - if open, replace Switch.

7. If all situations above do not solve problem, replace EOC.


F90 is a door lock code, Try this...
unplug the range.
wait 1 minute.
turn the range back on,
then while holding in on the oven door.
start another self clean.
wait 2 minutes.
then cancel the self clean.

do not release the door until the door lock light goes out.

Microwave oven only operates if the door is held closed


If the microwave oven operates with the door open it is a serious issue. DO NOT OPERATE IT. Call a technician immediately. The RF frequency is extremely dangerous. the safety switches inside the oven are malfunctioning and needs to be replaced

Range door will not seal properly.


Place a hammer handle between the door and the frame at the hinges..
Push on the door, carefully.
This usually works to re-seat the door hinges.

Kenmore oven model# 790.79383401 door not closing


Do the hinges come out with the door or does the door slip off the hinges? If the hinges are on the door then there is no adjustment if not there should be an adjustment but you may have to pull the range out to properly adjust if it is a built in range. Also check the door lock.
