I was cleaning my range hood and leaning over I somehow set the lock on the cook top. How do I unlock it?

Kenmore Elite... | Answered on Mar 19, 2014


You can do this by:
Check the oven display to see whether the screen says "LOC." When "LOC" is displayed, the oven lock is activated and the door cannot be opened. You need to make sure it is locked so you do not mistakenly lock the door.

  • 2 Press and hold the "Stop" button on the oven control panel until "LOC" disappears from the display. Some oven models have a button marked "Oven Lock," which should be used instead of the "Stop" button.
  • Lock the oven again by pressing and holding the "Stop" or "Oven Lock" button until "LOC" appears in the display

    Either hold down the 'Unlock' button or if the little red pad lock symbol is lid in the main display hold the 'Oven light' button for about 7 seconds...

    Thanks for posting to Fixya I will be helping you today. You have posted that you have a Kenmore Elite 44173 electric cooktop with a problem. However, you also mention your are having trouble with the oven not working. This post maybe categorized wrong but I will try to answer you question for both a range and oven control.

    Sometimes on a cooktop customers will lockout the controls on accident while cleaning. Usually there is a button on the control that you hold for 4 seconds +/- and there is a little simbol of a padlock next to it or you might have to check the owners manual.

    Lastly, Ranges may also have a lock out feature that the customer must press 4 seconds too unlock. On select models controls may also be locked out by putting their oven into sabbath mode. Usually the display will indicate a "SAB" to alert that this feature has been set.

    *In general the above instructions should help if your unit is locked out.

    Happy Holidays!

    For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
    I recommend both sites because ...


    FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

    PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
    RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


    If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
    In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


    Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

    If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

    I think you have entered "Sabbath Mode" which blanks the display ... check your owners manual to see how to exit this mode.

    If it was the burner element it either would work or not (no in between)
    It has to be the switch
