Question and Answers

Q:

Lock indicator won't quit flashing on our Kenmore Oven Model 790-95711890.

A:

The door not closing on the range can be an inconvenience and keep the oven from working properly. I did manage to find a link that will provide you with some troubleshooting tips. I hope this helps while you wait for your expert response.

A:

That lock indicator is flashing because the oven door latch is partially or fully extended with the oven door open.

Press and hold the oven door light switch in. If the lock mechanism begins to move, continue to hold that door switch in until it stops. Press the CLEAR button while continuing to hold that oven door light switch plunger in constantly. (The image below shows the procedure for canceling a clean cycle.) You may see that oven door latch retract to the original unlocked position. Once it is fully retracted, you can then let go of that oven door light switch. This may reset that lock mechanism so that you can use the oven again.

There is a chance that you may need to start a clean cycle and then cancel it to fully extend and then retract that door latch mechanism. Here is a link for your owner's manual that shows how to set that clean cycle: Owner's Manual .

If that oven door lock mechanism won't work, then you may need to replace that component. Reply with additional details if you need more help.

If you need to have a service technician repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .
