Question about Kenmore 30169 Electric Single Oven
While using the oven the latch on the door went to lock. we think it happened when we were checking the food half way thru. at this point the latch on the door is sticking out and the door will not close all the way and we can't use the oven. oven is currently off.
Try switching power off to unit by switching breaker of and on.if this does not work you will have to remove oven and remove rear panel or top panel and disengage or relpace latch assembly.only if your a tech.

There could be couple things. First, try pushing the door closed
as you turn the handle. The latch may have dropped into the strike hole
completely, binding the latch. Or you may try lifting the door as you try and
open it. Friction is the one thing that most often happens causing a latch not
Another possibility is that the latch may have become detached from the knob set. If this is the case, you will have to remove the lock from the door, and from there you can open the door with a flat blade screwdriver. I recommend replacing the latch as well. If you remove the lock from the inside of the door, using a flat blade screwdriver you can pull the little 'T' that sticks out from the latch on the inside of the hole. This pulls the latch back away from the strike, allowing you to open the door.
There are different configurations of latches, and they activate like way. You could run into a long latch the lock runs through. You can use a large flat blade to activate that. If you have the type with the half moon, use the outside of the lock body, stick it into the half moon, and turn the whole thing to retract the latch.
