Self clean and oven light


The latch is stuck halfway! Take your finger and push the latch all the way to the right until the oven light goes out. Now hold it there and press the self clean button. Let it start up for a few seconds then hit the off/cancel button and let go of the latch. It should hear it made a winding like sound as it goes back to it starting position.

Hello kmgtsg,
Welcome


You said, The door on my frigidaire stove model # FEF389WJCC locked and we are unable to get it open. We weren't self cleaning the oven so I'm not sure what happened. Any suggestions how to fix it? We did try turning the breaker off and that didn't help.

Did you leave the breaker off for 5 minutes or just flicked it off and on?

It may be a faulty door Latch
The door latch consist of a micro switch and solenoid. Once the door is closed and the latch handle.

But first try to deactivate the door lock


Oven Lockout
To activate the Oven Lockout feature:
1. Press and hold for 3 seconds
2. After 3 seconds a beep will sound, LOC will appear & "DOOR
LOCKED" will flash in the display. Once the oven door is locked
the "DOOR LOCKED" indicator will stop flashing.
To reactivate normal oven operation:
1. Press and hold for 3 seconds. A beep will sound. LOC will
clear. The "DOOR LOCKED" will continue to flash until the oven
door has completely unlocked
2. The oven is again fully operational.

Let me know if these procedures work for you!!
Huuum,
Please remember to leave a rating!

Self Clean won't start - Amana ACS3350AS Gas Kitchen Range


Our door on this oven is coming apart, so the oven door never truly closes.  When you set the self clean cycle, push the door shut until it locks... at least this has worked for me.  But I think all your problems, which are similar to mine, result from the oven door not truly closing... heat escapes, so the temp is not right and takes forever to heat up.  The heat melts the control panel, causing other problems.  In fact, our door is starting to fall open... a bit dangerous.
Good luck!

Jen air locked latch after cleaning


I finally got my oven to work properly by shutting off the breaker and resetting the main clock. Cured the always locked problem as well as the beep twice when self cleaning.

Have to repeat this every few months since the problem seems to come back.

Whilrpool Self Cleaning Range Door won't unlock


try this 1. Verify error code by pressing and holding CANCEL/OFF key for 5 seconds.
Momentarily (less than 5 sec.) press CANCEL key again to remove error code
display.
2. Press and hold any key for 1 minute until F2 E0 code is displayed.
3. Cancel F2 E0 error code.
4. Program and start the clean mode. Observe to see if door locks. If it does not,
inspect the locking mechanism from the solenoid to the latch pawl and door to
find the cause of the problem. If the door is not locking, then 1 minute from the
start of clean, the F5 E1 code will again be displayed. Steps 1 through 3 will
have to be repeated before another clean can be started.
5. Once any mechanical problems with the latch mechanism have been corrected,
program and start a clean cycle (after, if necessary, clearing F5 E1 error code)
to ensure proper operation of the door lock. Immediately cancel the clean mode to observe proper operation of door unlock
