Default door won't unlock
Model Number: kem1300v   Brand: Kitchen Aid   Age: More than 10 years

After a cleaning cycle, the oven door won't unlock. I have turned the power off, then back on, and restarted the cleaning cycle and cancelled it after an hour. Still won't unlock. Please help! This combo microwave/lower oven is fairly old, but I need to repair rather than replace it.

HI.

This is the latch assembly. Check if the handle is not band out of shape (if it is the latch will not open).

Part number: 814262

The handle is not bent. It operates smoothly to tighten the latch against the door. I have the front panels off, and the latch will not move to the left.

Hi.

This latch has a temperature controlled lock at the rear end.
The spring expends and contracts closing and releasing the latch.
Use a long screwdriver to push on the locking mechanism to open the door.
The latch assembly is no longer available, so don't be afraid to damage it. The oven should work OK as long as the latch will be in open position.
You will lose the self clean option.

Simon.
