My kenmore gas range (made by WCI) has mysteriously locked its own door. No manual, of course: how to unlock? Any ideas?

Hi grltk,

If you could post the model# that would help us to try to help you get it unlocked.

This model has a rod that goes from the back of the range up to the front door lock/latch assembly, what you can do is unplug the range, then open up the back access panel and then find that lock motor cam with the metal rod attached, then unscrew the motor cam assembly , then pull or push that rod to release the door.
