    your suggestion was correct about the sensor being bad, I now have an F9-4 code showing when we turn the clean on either oven. we have been out of town since you returned my request.It seens to have something to do with the lower oven lock. any suggestions would be helpful.

F1-3 is the code for the upper oven being over 950 deg F.
If the oven is now cool, then most likely there is a problem with the temp sensor in the upper oven.
You will need to remove the rear panel from the stove and check the resistence of the sensor to know for sure if it is bad. The only other way is to hook a new sensor to the harness and see if doors will unlock then.
Post back if you have any questions.

I have a Kenmore oven model # 665.95024100 and used the logi-clean cycle and now the door will not open. This happened before when I used it and I called the repair service to fix it but I cannot remember...

Articles on the internet suggest not using the self cleaning feature of modern ovens, becuase fuses and other parts may easily burn out due to the high temperature.

Suggested methods to open a locked Kenmore oven at the artlcle at the link below:

Oven door still locked after clean cycle

Take off the burner platform over the oven. Slide out the drip platform completely. Remove the access plate over the oven (Use a Phillips head sideways in a locking wrench to loosen screws). Using a long screwdriver slide the locking arm to the left of the oven as you face it, jiggle it a bit and it should release. I hesitate to clean the oven again but at least I now know how to release the lock and I saved $150.00 from my local appliance repair bandit.

Cant unlock self clean oven door

Door lock motor has probably failed.....Self clean on many ovens can be a self destruct mode. Door latch motors, sensor probes and even the electronic controls can be destroyed by this operation. Suggest oven cleaner method.

Locked oven door

try turning off the circuit breaker, resetting the power sometimes trips the self clean latch to operate, youll need to push in the door light switch.(it will have to think the door is closed to operate)

Hotpoint Self Cleaning Oven

the oven has a feature where you set the time for it to begin cleaning and the time for it to end cleaning.
Next to the clock in the middle of the back are two dials. The top one is the start time, the bottom one is the end time.
I suggest 2 hours to allow a good cleaning.
The locked light will turn off when the cleaning is done, allowing you to open the locking lever.

Look for a microswitch connected to the lock mechanism at the back of the stove. The switch is probably broken.

Ge oven door locked

You oven is locked because it is self-cleaning. Some how the handle got moved and it initiated. You may need to let the oven finish self-cleaning. Usually, it can take about an hour to complete the process. Afterward, the oven will beep when done and your oven can be opened. Good luck.
