Kenmore 790-90922400 range oven 'Door Locked' light is blinking.
Holding down unlock button does not make it unlock.
Is there some other key sequence I must use to get it to unlock?
-Could you explain your situation a little more? The door is locked closed or is the door locked open and you cannot shut the door? Both can happen.
My oven is locked. If the door is opened and the door lock mechanism is locked,To deal with this, open the door and locate the door switch plunger. You will need to push and hold the door switch plunger in continuously while you press the 'Stop/Clear' button and wait for the door lock mechanism to fully lock and unlock before you release the door switch plunger.
You may have to select 'Clean', wait one minute and then press 'Stop/Clear' while pushing and holding the door switch plunger in until the door lock mechanism fully unlocks.
I don't understand how to "Select Clean".I held down the door detector switch while 'Stop Clearing' and the light stopped blinking but the light is still on and it still won't let the door close.
Start self clean, the door automatically will auto lock and "locked" appear in the display. Then hit "Off" to clear it and stop the cleaning cycle. The door then should unlock as normal!If this does not work for you go to the house breaker box and turn off the power switches to your oven for 5 minutes. This resets the system. But usually the self clean on and then off unlocks it!
I don't understand how to unlock it in general. The blinking has stopped but it still shows a steady "Door Locked" light.If I take the self-clean route, how do I start the self clean? I've already tried holding down the clean button.
