There must be something in the air..... Minus the "bras" :shock: I did exactly the same thing as Cheri. MODEL Number 911-4742594.  Lock light is flashing and the lock mechanism is deployed: door unable to close as a result. Please advise. Many Thanks!  Kevin - Durham,NC

PROBLEM SOLVED...:D If anyone else has this problem (w/Kenmore 911-47425)  after you cancel the self-clean cycle, just press and hold the light switch; the "locking mechanism" resets itself and then the door will close. ( hopefully ) you won't have to open up the panel and disconnect the "locking arm" as I did...only to watch it "reset" when I closed the door...ugh.

Peace, Kevin :cool:

Stupid question, but do you mean the inside light button, or the one on the front top of the range?  For some reason, this just started happeneing with my range and the lock light keeps coming on, again and again, after I cancel the clean process.  At first I thought my son had pushed the clean button, when he was supposed to push the broiler button.  Then after I hit cancel, it kept locking the door, then I couldn't close the door.  Then the lock light would go out, then it would come back on.  I can't easily get to the power cord because it is literally in the floor UNDER the range.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  It is also the season for four-legged critters to find a warm place.  I heard scratching inside the stove last weekend and thought perhaps they had chewed thru some wires or something.  The top burners work fine, just the oven and broiler doesn't.

Sure would be nice to have the model number so we can see who made this for Sears.

I followed your posted oven door unlocking instructions, but was unsuccessful.   I have a Kenmore model # 665 75822001,  series# RK4819580.  The oven door is lock shut.  When pressing the cancel button I come up with the following error code E0  -F0-. It happened once before and a Sears repair man came out, pressed a few buttons and unlocked it.  I negletected to get the info at that time even though I paided for it.Thanks,Oscar

This is a Whirlpool range, the tech sheet did not give any codes or diagnostics, this is all I have been able to find but is not for the Y line, but since this is a Kenmore badged unit with a Sears model number have no way to know if this pertains to your range or not. Need to get to your tech sheet that is locked inside of your range somewhere...:?

Thank's anyway.

I have another question. By "replace controls" does this mean the circuit board with the buttons?

The exact quote is "replace control" -- singular, not plural.

And yes.

:D Thanks for the Advice, I Couldn't open door for about an hour. It just needed to be reset by starting the "Clean" cycle again(fan turns on), then canceling it with "cancel" button(fan turns off).

  - Once again, thanks for your input and time in this matter!  -PC

I mistakenly pushed the clean button and then canceled it on my Kenmore oven (haven't looked for the model # yet)now the lock mechanism won't stop locking and unlocking itself. In fact, as long as the oven door is shut the lock mechanism will continually operate. The display doesn't respond to any buttons pushed only flashes the light button.:yikes:
