KENMORE SELF CLEANING FEATURE WILL NOT ACTUATE

I have a Sears Kenmore Gas Range, Model #790.75750100, with touch panel controls.

I do not have the Manual.
I only need to know how to actuate the Self Cleaning feature.

Thank you.

Firstly, empty the oven of stuff, including the little thermostat that dangles from the grate, if you value it's life.

Next, close oven door.

Press CLEAN; it beeps and green LED illuminates. LED readout says " -- -- --".
Press the UP arrow; it beeps and LED readout says: ''3:00'', for a three hour burn.

DOOR LOCKED LED blinks while door locking mechanism actuates, then stays on steady. Burner ignites, and it's off to the races.
The exterior of the Range becomes quite HOT, providing an excellent opportunity to educate young children of the concept. ;)

The Cleaning Cycle can be stopped at any time by pressing the OFF/CANCEL button for ~3 seconds. The door will remain locked until the internal temperature of the oven falls below 400F. Nice toy.

Manual for model 790.45062401

Sears Parts Direct has the manual for the Kenmore 790.45062401 here: https://www.searspartsdirect.com/manual/69n6jkqbeh-000582/kenmore-79045062401-electric-range . Usually when a range beeps continuously, there is a communication problem between the key pad and the control board. It could indicate a short or a stuck key. That's part 20 on the backguard diagram: https://www.searspartsdirect.com/model/69n6jkqbeh-000582/kenmore-79045062401-electric-range-parts .

Since you indicate that the door lock has been triggered with the door open, try pressing the Stop/Clear button. (Note: holding the Stop/Clear button will trigger the control panel lock.) If that doesn't return the lock to the normal position, you probably have a fault in the lock mechanism. See parts 88 and on the body diagram: https://www.searspartsdirect.com/model/69n6jkqbeh-000582/kenmore-79045062401-electric-range-parts?page=3 . You can try to turn the latching rod by accessing the lock mechanism from the back of the range. (Unplug or turn the range off at the circuit breaker.) Since the lock mechanism gets a signal from the control board, check your wiring for damage. If needed, replace the lock or wiring.

I hope this helps. If your range is covered by a warranty, contact Sears/Kenmore or your extended warranty company.

Oven door is locked out - Sears no help

      1. 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.
      2. 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.
      3. 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.

I do not know how to use the self clean feature on my Kenmore Gas stove

Hi

Press the self-clean button to start the cycle. The panel becomes blank (---), then press the up arrow (^). The panel will appear 3:00 (indication for the duration of self-cleaning). The oven will lock on its own and start the self-cleaning. After self cleaning is done wait for 15-20 minutes and open the door. Please post back for any further assistance. Hope this helps...

Kenmore oven and brolier will not work

The problem lies within your oven control board. This is very common and are not very hard to replace but they are expensive. You can check the price of a new control board at sears parts.
