I cannot unlock the cooktop on my Kenmore gas range. There is no lockout button, only Select Clean and Stop/Clear. Neither one of which unlocked the cooktop. There is a little padlock looking symbol that says cooktop lockout, but there is no button. There is another one for the oven, but no button. How do I unlock the cooktop?

    Hi Anonymous, I want to help you with your question, but I need more information from you. The model number given in the question is either wrong or incomplete. Please check that model number. Usually, on Kenmore ranges, you can find the model # and serial # on either the left or right side of the storage or warmer drawer. Open the drawer and look on the frame of the range for a label. On a few ranges, the label is affixed to the frame between the oven door and the drawer.
    As an alternative, please post a clear picture of the control panel.

Your best bet is to unplug the stove and plug it back in again and hope that clears the lock

SOURCE: oven door won't unlock

I had this same issue and consulted the owner's manual. Once on self clean it takes up to 3-4 hours for it to automatically unlock. It is a built in safety feature of the oven.

This may be a silly question but, did you just try turning off the circuit breaker for a couple minutes to see if it resets itself when you flip it back on?

How to Unlock Locked Oven Door on Kenmore Range Hunker

Quoting from the link shown:
Step 1 Read the display on the electronic oven controls, where the clock and timer normally appear. If the display reads "CLN" while the "Door Locked" light is on, the Kenmore range is in self-clean mode. When the Kenmore range is in self-clean mode, you must stop the cleaning process before the door will unlock.
Step 2 Stop the self-cleaning process by pressing and holding the "Stop/Clear" button for three seconds. The oven lock should disengage after three seconds. In some cases, a malfunction between the control panel and the locking mechanism prevents the door from unlocking.
Step 3 Hold the light switch for several seconds if the "Stop/Clear" button fails to unlock the range door. Engaging the light switch for several seconds resets the entire locking mechanism and overrides the "Stop/Clear" button.

Error 40 on kenmore convection oven


The 40 error code indicates a failure of the cooktop lockout board. The cooktop lockout board is not communicating with the main EOC electronic oven control. This could be a loose wiring harness or either the EOC board or cooktop lockout board is faulty. This type of diagnosis will require using a volt/ohm meter. If you decide to check the harness to the boards you will need to remove the back panel for access.

How do I turn off the "key" icon on screen display Heartland Stove/Oven ?


The key is a lockout symbol. It appears when you set the oven to child lock mode ( Stops kids from opening the door and getting burnt) or when the oven gets over a certain temperature. (Stops you getting burnt) If you from have the instruction manual, it is xa bit difficult. You usually have to npress and hold 1 or more of the buttons in for a few seconds to unlock. I'm not sure which ones on your oven.

From the manual:

To turn the Cooktop Lockout Feature OFF:
1. Press and hold (_ until "CLO" appears (Figure 3). Continue holding
until a second beep sounds (after 3 seconds). I_1will disappear from
the display indicating the cooktop may be used normally (Figure 4).
Note: Starting a Self-Clean cycle will automatically turn ON the Cooktop
Lockout feature. The cooktop will remain locked until the Self-Clean cycle
has completed and the oven door has unlocked. If a power failure occurs
after the Cooktop Lockout has been activated, you must turn OFF the
Cooktop Lockout feature before being able to use the cooktop features
again.

How do I fix an F40 code on a kenmore elite rlectric range model #790.46709603


The "F40" fault code indicates a Cooktop Lockout error. There is a "Lockout" control board that locks out the cooktop from operating whenever the "Clean" cycle is used. It's not normal to display "F40" unless there is a "Lockout" or an "EOC" (electronic oven control) failure. It may need one or the other or both boards replaced. If the cooktop will operate after the range has cooled and unlocked then it may need the EOC and not the Lockout board. If you can ignore the beeping and the F40 and the range will heat up again in the clean cycle and complete the clean cycle then it could have a faulty Lockout board. Here a link to a YouTube video with the instructions on how to access and replace the EOC.

Here is the lockout board if you need to order it.
Here is the EOC board if you should need it also.

HOW TO UNLOCK JEN-AIR STOVE TOP MODEL# JED4536WR01


The All Off cooktop touch control turns off the downdraft exhaust

system and all surface cooking areas that are in use at the same

time.



The Lock cooktop control avoids unintended use of the surface

cooking areas. When the cooktop is locked out, the surface

cooking areas cannot be turned on by the cooktop touch

controls.



To Lock Cooktop: Touch and hold the ALL OFF/LOCK keypad

for 4 seconds. After 4 seconds, ALL OFF/LOCK will glow red,

indicating that the cooktop controls are in the lockout position.

To Unlock Cooktop: Touch and hold the ALL OFF/LOCK keypad

Keys on the oven are not working so I can not start oven bake


Thanks for posting to Fixya I will be helping you today. You have posted that you have a Kenmore Elite 44173 electric cooktop with a problem. However, you also mention your are having trouble with the oven not working. This post maybe categorized wrong but I will try to answer you question for both a range and oven control.

Sometimes on a cooktop customers will lockout the controls on accident while cleaning. Usually there is a button on the control that you hold for 4 seconds +/- and there is a little simbol of a padlock next to it or you might have to check the owners manual.

Lastly, Ranges may also have a lock out feature that the customer must press 4 seconds too unlock. On select models controls may also be locked out by putting their oven into sabbath mode. Usually the display will indicate a "SAB" to alert that this feature has been set.

*In general the above instructions should help if your unit is locked out.

Happy Holidays!
