GE Spectra XL44 Gas Oven, flashing "Locked Door". Can't use oven or close door

Oven door latch won't allow my oven door and control pad flashing "door locked". We have turned off the power for 5 minutes, tried pressing the self cleaning button to reset it and nothing works. Oven will not close or come on. Gas stove top still working though. Please help me.

    same problem - used self cleaning feature and now door is locked. This is the second time this happened. Only solution was to call for service.

    I have the same exact problem! The "Locked Door" sign keeps flashing and I can't use my oven. I tried unplugging the oven and waiting - still nothing! If someone has a solution to this - please let us know.

    Thank you,bayziepper! My upper oven light flashed all night because I thought it was cleaning. Turns out it wasn't and hitting 'clear/off' did nothing. My oven is electric but I took your advice and pressed the black button and it finally turned off. You have NO idea how much stressed you relieved for me today! Again, thank you!

    I was going to do the self clean on my oven. I hit the bottom and then it flashed locked door. So I tried to open the door to see if it was locked and it opened. Now I can't do anything with the oven. The door won't close all the way and "locked door" keeps flashing in red. I've tried the control unlock with no results. We have unplugged it, turned off all power in kitchen, and left it unplugged all nite. Still cannot get flashing to stop, reset nothing. Please help

I had the same problem happen tonight. I have an XL44 self-cleaning gas range. We unplugged it for several minutes and pressed 'cancel' a bunch of times--neither worked. We finally lucked out--opened the oven door and pressed a black button on the upper left side of the front of the oven. It turned out the flashing words and unlocked our door. Weird. There was nothing in the manual about this...

    Thank you so much, this worked! I was about to let my wife go out and buy a new stove!! Saved my Christmas! As for shannon603, great idea, use a hammer. I would hate to see the rest of the repairs around that house.

I tried several different solutions I found on the web, and the simplest (hold in black button on top left side of oven) worked. You may have to hold it for several seconds before Locked quits flashing and the door will close.

To bayziepepper. Thanks so much. Had the same problem as those above and pressing the black button solved the problem. Now, I don't need to call the repairman.

As for shannon603, I think he/she has his/her own particular problem (and not only with the oven).

You all are idiots. The reason the "locked door" sign is flashing is NOT because you need to cut the power, or clean your oven. It is actually flashing "locked door," because YOUR oven is NOT closing. I bought a hammer and hit the latch until it closed properly. I advise you all to do the same. Don't blame it on GE, just use common sense.

Glad I found this blog. I guess I didn't start the self clean correctly and "locked" kept flashing. The lock had shifted to the right and was actually preventing the door from closing. After reviewing several on line manuals, this was the only place I found the solution. I pushed in the black button (upper left outside the frame of the oven) for a few seconds, the lock reset and the light stopped flashing "locked", and I was able to shut the door.

Most likely the oven ignitor is bad or weak.  You can look at it and see how it compares to the broil ignitor.  If you see a whitish color on the ignitor and if it doesn't fully glow then it needs to be replaced.

I did the self clean on my oven, and now the oven door will not unlock (E1-F5-) pops up onto the oven screen.


Hi

Error E1 F5 means that the control has detected a problem with door latch switch. Switch off the power and unplug it from the mains. Check after 5-6 minutes whether the error has disappeared. If the error is still there then once again start the self clean cycle. Press the self-clean button to start the cycle. The panel becomes blank (---), then press the up arrow (^). The panel will appear 3:00 (indication for the duration of self-cleaning). The oven will lock on its own and start the self-cleaning. After self cleaning is done wait for 15-20 minutes and open the door. Try moving the latch manually to unlock it. hope this helps...

Oven will not work.


This is what GE recommends for your oven:

“F—and a number or On models with a door latch, • The latch may have been moved, even if only slightly,
letter” flash in the display if a function error code appears from the locked position. Make sure the latch is moved
during the self-cleaning cycle, to the right as far as it will go.
check the oven door latch.
You have a function error code. • Touch the Clear/Off pad. Allow the oven to cool for
one hour. Put the oven back into operation.
If the function code repeats. • Disconnect all power to the range for 5 minutes
and then reconnect power. If the function error
code repeats, call for service.

Oven door lock does not unlock, I turned on the self clean mode and then changed my mind and turn it back off about 3 minutes later. But it does not unlock. The lock light is blinking.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. There is an over-temperature switch built into the electrical panel of the oven. Resetting this switch might solve the issue.

To reset it: Turn off the power. Open the door (if door is locked, turn the power back on and gently try pulling the door every few seconds as the locking mechanism cycles until it is unlocked). Remove the 3 screws below the control panel (screws point upwards, with the head just inside the oven). Pull off the face of the control panel. Let it dangle by the wires so that you have access to the space behind it.

Within the electrical enclosure exposed by removing the control panel, look for a small silver and black device with 2 wires attached to the back. The device is about .5" wide by 1" long and is attached with 2 screws to the sheet metal on the bottom of the electrical enclosure.


Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

How do I set the oven to self clean


The oven door must be closed and all controls set correctly for the cycle to work properly. After a Clean Cycle You may notice some white ash in the oven. Wipe it up with a damp cloth after the oven cools. If white spots remain, remove them with a soap- filled scouring pad and rinse thoroughly with a vinegar and water mixture. These deposits are usually a salt residue that cannot be removed by the clean cycle. If the oven is not clean after one clean cycle, repeat the cycle.
You cannot set the oven for cooking until
the oven is cool enough for the door to unlock.
While the oven is self-cleaning, you can
touch the TIMER/CLOCK pad to display the time of day.
To return to the clean
countdown, touch the COOKING TIME pad.
If the shelves become hard to slide,
apply a small amount of vegetable oil or cooking oil to a paper towel and wipe the edges of the oven shelves with the paper towel.

Using the self-cleaning oven.

How to Delay the Start of Cleaning

Make sure the clock shows the correct time of day. If your model has a latch, latch the door. Touch the SELF CLEAN pad. Using the + or or the number pads, enter the desired clean time. Touch the DELAY START pad. The earliest start time you can set will appear in the display. Using the + or or the number pads, enter the time of day you want the clean cycle to start. Touch the START pad. On models without a door latch, the door locks automatically. The display will show the start time. It will not be possible to open the oven door until the temperature drops below the lock temperature and the LOCKED DOOR light goes off. The oven shuts off automatically when the clean cycle is complete. When the LOCKED DOOR light is off, slide the latch handle to the left as far as it will go and open the door. If your range does not have a latch, the door will unlock automatically. n The words LOCK DOOR will flash and the oven control will signal if you set the clean cycle and forget to close the oven door or forget to latch the door on models with a latch. n To stop a clean cycle, touch the CLEAR/OFF pad. When the LOCKED DOOR light goes off indicating the oven has cooled below the locking temperature, unlatch the door (on models with a latch) and open the door.

F90 Maximum oven door unlock time exceeded.
F91 Maximum oven door unlock attempts exceeded.
F92 Maximum oven door open time exceeded.
F93 Maximum oven door lock time exceeded.
F94 Maximum oven door lock attempts exceeded.


1. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Check the wiring between EOC & Lock Motor Micro Switch.

2. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Replace the Motor Door Latch assembly if necessary.

3. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Check for binding of the Latch Cam, Lock Motor Rod & Lock Motor Cam.

4. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Check to see if Lock Motor Coil is open. If open, replace Lock Motor Assembly.

5. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Lock Motor continuously runs - if Micro Switch is open, replace Lock Motor Assembly.

6. (F92, 93 & 94) Check oven door Light Switch - if open, replace Switch.

F90 is a door lock code, Try this...
unplug the range.
wait 1 minute.
turn the range back on,
then while holding in on the oven door.
start another self clean.
wait 2 minutes.
then cancel the self clean.

do not release the door until the door lock light goes out.

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!
