Customer Question
I have a Kenmore...

I have a Kenmore Gas range, Model No. 790. In cleaning the control panel, I accidentally hit the door lock button. The oven door is now locked and even though I pressed "Stop" per the directions in the manual it is still locked. The oven was never on.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Kenmore is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

It is five years old and the Model No. 790

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes, if it is not complicated.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

The oven was never turned on. I just accidentally pushed the button.
