Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

Try the following and let me know if it works or not, sometimes it will but if the door lock mechanism has failed then the following will not work and the locking mechanism will have to replaced on the unit.

Program and start a cleaning cycle and then wait 2 minutes. After 2 minutes of starting a clean cycle, press the "Clear" button and then wait to see if the door lock mechanism will unlatch the door.

Let me know, thanks. Also if you have the full model number I will need that in order to give you the replacement part number if it comes down to having to replace it.

Ok then ya the door lock assembly has failed and needs to be replaced you will need to give me the model number of the range to be able to give you the replacement part number.

model 790 kenmore
Expert:  Joel Swenson replied 14 days ago.

ya that is not going to be the full model number, there are 5769 ranges that start with 790, the model number is ***** on a tag on the frame of the range behind the door, but I know the door wont open so what you will need to do is make a hook out of a coat hanger and slip it down in the top of the door and manually move the locking hook to open the door but it is not that easy of a task.
