Kenmore gas range--oven won't come on

After self cleaning, the oven will no longer come on. When you turn the oven control on, the self clean light flashes, but the oven won't come on. I have tried to self clean again...which it WILL do, but after the cycle is finished, the lights on the contol panel flash instead of going off. The burners work, but I know that they run independently of the oven. I cannot locate a cancel or reset button & I've tried unplugging the unit to let the control panel cool off, but nothing has worked.

    The model number is 362.72321002. Thanks.

    Having been in the appliance business for over 10 years, I actually was pretty sure of the problem before I started. It was not the ignitor, unfortunately, because I could have fixed that. I actually seemed to have taken out part of the board, thus forcing us to replace the oven. Thanks.

    Bought a Kenmore gas range in 2006. 13 mo. later had same problem,

    replaced the part for $226. Used the self cleaning oven 3 weeks ago and

    the same problem occured. Now they want $368 to fix it, plus the $75 I

    spent for the last service call. Can't find anyone at Sears to help with

    this defective range.

My oven will not work. After pressing the desired temp on the oven, the preheat light and oven light comes on. After about 15 minutes, the oven is slightly warm and maybe an hour later the oven may or may not heat to desired temp. Kenmore gas range model #790.72851301.

    During the self clean it may have burnt out the ignitor. Need to check power to ignitor when in bake. Should have 120 volts. If power is there and ignitor is not coming on then it is bad. Could also check resistance of ignitor with an ohm meter. Also, could have burnt out the oven temp. sensor. You can check the resistance on the sensor from the board. Now, if the ignitor is coming on and oven is not lighting, the ignitor could have become too weak. In this case you would need to replace the ignitor. Let me know what you find.

Kenmore elite oven door shows door locked how to unlock it

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.

Cannot do anything but self=clean

The oven temperature is regulated by a temperature sensor when placed in self clean the sensor is removed from the circuit and full power is applied to both the bake and broil elements causing an the temperature to exceed in some some models up to 1,000 F. I would recommend against using self clean for the simple fact that no oven cavity to this date has been designed to withstand that high of a temperature and therefore excess heat is passed upward resulting in damaged lock mechanisms, control boards, and other electronic components. More than likely your thermostat or oven control has been damaged and needs to be replaced. I would replace the temperature sensor as well

Oven lite won't go off and when turn on self cleaning it says door

The door switch has gone bad. This will keep the oven light on and the self clean won't work because it thinks the door is open.

After self- cleaning my Kenmore Gas Range, I have not been able to get the 'Cooktop Lock' light turned off! So while I can use my oven for baking I can't turn the gas on the top of my stove! I have...

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?

Kenmore Gas Range

Hey Alan- 'Self clean' sells. Techs call this function 'self- destruct'. Depending on age and number of previous 'clean' cycles, the control may have developed errors, or lockout switches may not function. If inside is thoroughly scraped, and bottom pan checked, removed, and cleaned if necessary, oven should work fine. Preventitive drip pans and a lot of aluminum foil keep the 'Self Clean' Gremlins away. Hope this helps- Thanks- ED

Kenmore gas range will not stop beeping showing F9 in window

The F9 code indicates there is a problem with the door lock.

Try disconnecting the power to the range for 10 seconds and reconnecting. Open the oven door and hold the door switch plunger in while you try these things. Put the control into clean for 5 minutes then cancel clean. You must hold the door switch plunger in for the 5 minutes.

Try canceling the clean cycle without putting the control into clean.
