Q:

CAN'T CLOSE DOOR OF STOVE ITS A KENMORE LOCK BUTTON IS FLASHING

A:

Sometimes it feels like you are putting in a secret code to figure out how to reset an appliance. So I have taken the time to research your question and noticed that someone else had asked a similar question with a posted response from an expert. I have attached the link below for you to view because I am sure that it will help you. Good luck!

The first link that Dezeray S. provided in the above response may help you retract the oven door lock. Try that procedure to fix this problem. The oven door lock motor will not run unless the door switch is closed.

If you cannot retract the oven door lock using that procedure, you may have a bad door lock assembly or a failed electronic control board. A problem with the door switch could also cause this problem. See if the oven light turns on and off properly when you cycle the door switch. If the door switch is bad, you may be able to fix this problem by replacing that component (part 316027701). Be sure that you unplug the range before accessing internal components.

You can view the parts diagram and order replacement parts from the Sears PartsDirect website.

If the door switch appears to be okay, you would need to conduct some testing with a volt/ohm meter to determine the cause of this failure. I provided the wiring diagram for the oven door lock components in the image below. You can unplug the range and check the continuity through the door switch and the door lock motor using this information. If the door switch is "open" from COM to NO when the door switch is pushed in to simulate the oven door being closed, then you will need to replace the door switch. If the door switch is okay, check the resistance through the door lock motor. If the motor is "open" then the door lock assembly (part 5304449471) will need to be replaced. If both of these components are okay, you could have a bad control board or a wiring failure causing this problem.

If you need more help, reply with additional details.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Lyle, I have the problem that I can't set my oven temperature (and consequently, can't turn the oven on) unless I first wiggle the switch. I need to replace it. I can find the part - but, not sure how to replace. With the power off, can I extract the old one without removing the side panel? It looks like it has expanding tabs to hold it in place. Any advice you can provide would be appreciated. Thanks Dan

Dan: In order to see what type of range and control it has, I will need to know the model number of the range. If you could supply me with that information I will be happy to assist you further.

Thanks Joey. The range is a Tappan TEF362BBBA. I believe the control unit P/N is 316028325, but I've determined that the CU works fine if I wiggle the switch. The switch P/N is 316027701.

Dan: A faulty oven door light switch could prevent the door from locking and prevent the oven from going into the clean cycle but it would not have anything to do with the oven not operating in the Bake or Broil cycles. The light switch can be removed without removing the side panel. If you need to replace the light switch, pry it out. You may need to press the locking tabs inwards before it can be pried out all the way. Note: Disconnect the range from the power source before prying the oven door switch out. If it breaks, you will have new one anyway.

Joey, I can see from examining the schematic, you are quite right, the light switch has nothing to do with the oven not coming on. I am at a loss to explain why, after jiggling it, I got a beep when I pressed the Bake Temp button, was able to set the temp, and have the oven start to heat. But, I have additional information... The lock motor is cycling continuously. If I open the door and hold the switch plunger in, I can watch the motor lever lock (and the red "locked" indicator briefly light on the console), then unlock again. Of course, releasing the plunger halts the action. It's not that I've requested the oven to go into clean mode - I can cancel all I want, and I've powered off, waited some time and powered back on again. Is it likely that I've got a blown control module? I'd like to know what I did to make the oven operable, at least one time... Is there any way to "hot wire" the oven so that it will operate with thermostatic control? I don't need the oven clean feature. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide. Dan P.S. the light switch can't be removed from the front on this model - only the plunger shaft comes through the face

An update! I can now explain how "jiggling" the oven light switch permitted me to turn the oven on. I opened the door, and held in the switch. I waited for the lever to return to the open position, and then alternately pushed the bake temp button, and briefly the oven light button. Somewhere around the fully unlocked position, the bake temp switch became enabled! It wasn't jiggling the switch that enabled it - it was putting the lever in this critical position. I'm inclined to think that if I disable the motor when the lever arrives at this position, I'll be able to use my oven normally (I've never used the clean function anyway). So, what's the best way to achieve that? Is there an easier way, than disconnecting the motor contacts on the light switch (which can't be accessed through the front)? Dan

A:

Dan: There is a micro switch on the door lock motor assembly and a cam. The micro switch is likely faulty. You can let the lock motor rotate to the open position and then disconnect one of the motor leads to the lock motor. You can access the lock motor assembly at the back of the range. You will need to remove the rear panel to access the lock motor assembly. Be sure and disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the rear panel. I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
