: How do I unlock the oven door on my Kenmore Elite oven?

Without the model number I'm unable to provide you with technical information. Please resubmit your question with the model number.

General Information


Steps to unlock a jammed manual latch


Make sure the oven is not hot.

Place hand on oven door handle.

Push the oven door enough to release the tension.

While pressing on the door, move the latch lever to the unlocked position. Do not force the latch to move.

Steps to unlock door lock engaged with push button


Push the oven lock button and see if the display changes. If not proceed.

Start a self clean cycle.

Wait about one minute.

Press the cancel button to stop the self clean cycle.

Wait until the self clean light is no longer illuminated. the door should unlock completely.

If none of these options work for you I recommend resubmitting the question with your model number, or calling a service technician.
