How to Unlock a Kenmore Self-Cleaning Oven

Save

Kenmore, the brand marketed by Sears, offers a line of ovens for residential use that include a door lock feature. This lockout feature will lock the oven door and disable the control panel so the oven cannot be opened or used until the lockout feature is canceled. This child-safety feature prevents curious young children from operating the oven unsupervised.
