Are there any prohibitions to putting a 240V electric range receptacle with a switch behind the range to lock out front-control ranges from young children?

No problem - just a tad bit un-conventional

How would you access the switch if it is behind the range?

How about a definite purpose contactor next to the panel in the basement with a 24volt coil...hide the switch in the cabinet above the stove [Linked Image]

One could use shortcircuits idea, and add an access control key pad.

Ooh, I know- binary switch code! Wire up 8 3-way switches hidden in a cabinet such that you must hit the proper combination for the circuit to work [Linked Image]

Have seen this more than once in nursing or limited care facilities for ranges or cooktops in accessible areas. Best one was a Square D molded case switch (60A) which comes in an enclosure that is padlockable.

Jes is right.

Nursing home we did two years ago had a definite purpose contactor in the attic. 120v control was switched with a wall mounted key switch in the kitchen area.
