First, consult the Use and Care manual that came with your oven– usually the procedure is explained there. If you no longer have the manual, you can buy another one from Sears.

Next, locate the tech sheet for your oven; it’s cleverly hidden somewhere in the range. Common hiding places are the control panel and the pots n’ pans drawer area. It will have a procedure for putting the oven into diagnostic mode. Usually, just doing this clears the error.

Door lock motor motor is OK when power is disconnected to left motor limit switch. Can lock and unlock door, but can not clear “LOC” indication to use other oven pad controls.

If the board won’t even go into diagnostic mode, then replace the board.
