Control Lock light remains on

The "Control Lock" light is lit and when the door is closed a "1" appears in the "time-window". When the number disappears, the "Control Lock" light remains on and none of the other touch controls work either. Any suggestions? Thanks Vince

    The keypad doesn't have a "lock" symbol. I tried pressing and holding all the other menu keypads but that didn't work either. The menu keypad is as follows:
    Favotite Cycle
    Pots Pans
    Normal Wash
    Water Miser
    China Wash
    Quick Wash
    Quick Rinse
    Water Heat
    Sani Rinse
    No Heat Dry
    Delay Start
    Start
    Cancel Drain
    Don't know if that helps but I'm trying to give you as much infor as possible.

    Thanks

Dishwasher door will not close dishwasher come on with door open.


Good Morning Garthraie, thanks for your post!
I see that the door on your Frigidaire dishwasher appears to be locked and will not close. Could you please advise if the control panel has any lights lit up on it? Also, may I have the model number of your dishwasher? You can locate the serial tag (which lists your model number) on the inside left hand wall of your dishwasher. With this additional information I would be able to assist you further. -Matt

My handle is broke, but closes just fine. I can't select a type of wash. It's stuck where its at. It says hold button for 3 seconds to unlock but still nothing. Whats the issue?


Hello. From what you describe, you have multiple issues at work here. I need the model number of the washer to help you most accurately for exploded diagrams, diagnostic routines, and part numbers. If the door lock mechanism is still working, then the only part that needs replacing is the plastic handle--there is an internal switch that MUST close when the door is shut thereby telling the main control board it's okay to start the cycle. If that switch isn't closed, you can choose options as much as you want but the washer will NEVER start. It's an important safety feature. Next, the control lock light is lit--that tells you that nothing will work on the panel until the lock is disabled. You must press and hold the button until the light goes out--USUALLY 3-4 seconds more or less. If the light remains lit no matter what you do, then there is an issue with the main control board. Have you had a power outage recently?(3-4 weeks prior or anytime in-between) They are NOTORIOUS for damaging the digital boards in modern appliances. And, it could have been a "brown out" where the power just blinks that does it. Also, the button control panel might be defective--the soft-touch buttons can become shorted internally--the computer won't let anything happen because it thinks you're pressing a button and haven't let it go yet.

How do i operate the self cleaning function


Hello - Before using the self-cleaning cycle of the appliance, remove the broiler pan and any utensils stored in the appliance. Also remove any excess spillovers in the oven cavity. Allow the oven to cool before cleaning. During the self-cleaning cycle, the outside of the wall oven can become very hot to the touch.

Typically to set the controls for a self-clean the first step is to confirm that the clock shows the correct time of the day. Press CLEAN. "---" appears in the display. Press the UP ARROW or DOWN ARROW once. "3:00" appears in the display for a 3 hour cycle. To change to a 2 hour cycle press DOWN ARROW"2:00" appears in the display. As soon as the controls are set, the motor drive lock will begin to close automatically and the "LOCK" indicator light will flash. DO NOT open the oven door while the light is flashing (it takes about 15 seconds for the over door to lock). "CLn" will appear in the display during the Self-Clean cycle and the "LOCK" light will glow until the Self-Cleaning cycle is complete or cancelled and the oven temperature has cooled.

When the Self-Clean cycle has completed, the time of the day or "End" will appear in the display window and the "Clean" and "LOCK" light will continue to glow. Once the over has cooled down for about 1 HOUR and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can be opened. If "End" is the display and the Clean indicator light remains ON, press CLEAR/OFF. The time of the day will appear in the display.

If it becomes necessary to stop or interrupt a Self-Cleaning cycle, press CLEAR/OFF. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 HOUR and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can be opened. Restart the Self-Clean cycle once all conditions have been corrected.

I have a Whirlpool stove (model# RF385PXE)and I tried to start the self clean oven cycle the letters "door" appeared along with "E1" and "F5". The door is closed all the way. I even tried pushing it closed...

1. If door latched:

3. Measure door switch (door open = switch open small low voltage terminals). Replace switch if defective.
4. Measure latch switch (unlatch = switch open, CAUTION - oven light contacts are closed). Replace switch if defective.

My oven is in lock mode after i had cleaned it. I can't open it now and the lock light is on.


Control panel and oven door lock
The oven door and controls can be locked to avoid unintended use of the oven. The oven doors and controls cannot be locked if the oven is in use, or the oven temperature is 400°F (205°C) or above. The current time of day will remain in the display when the controls and oven doors are locked.
To lock the control panel and both oven doors:
  1. Press and release Cancel.
  2. Press and hold upper oven Cancel and Cook & Hold for 3 seconds. “Off” appears in the display and “Lock” flashes while the controls and oven doors lock. Both oven doors lock. “Lock” remains lit in the display.
To unlock the control panel and both oven doors:
  1. Press and hold upper oven Cancel and Cook & Hold for 3 seconds. “Off” disappears from the display and “Lock” flashes while the controls and oven doors unlock.

How do use self clean service?


CAUTION: SHOULD AN OVEN FIRE OCCUR,
CLOSE THE OVEN DOOR AND TURN OFF THE
OVEN. IF THE FIRE CONTINUES, USE A FIRE
EXTINGUISHER. DO NOT PUT WATER OR FLOUR
ON THE FIRE. FLOUR MAY BE EXPLOSIVE.
To set the controls for a self-clean cycle:
For satisfactory results use a 2 hour self-clean cycle for
light soils and a 3 hour cycle for average to heavy
soils.
1. Be sure the clock shows the correct time of day.
2. Press Clean. "— — —" appears in the display.
3. Press the Up Arrow until "3:00" appears in the
display for a 3 hour cycle, or press the Down Arrow
until "2:00" appears in the display for a 2 hour cycle.
4. As soon as the Up Arrow or Down Arrow is
released, "CLN" appears in the display.
5. As soon as the controls are set, the motor driven
lock will begin to close automatically and the "LOCK"
indicator light will flash. DO NOT open the door while
the light is flashing (it takes about 15 seconds for the
oven door to lock).
6. The "LOCK" light will glow until the cleaning cycle is
completed or cancelled, and the oven
temperature has cooled.
When the self-clean cycle is completed:
1. The time of day or “END” will appear in the display
window and the “Clean” and "LOCK" light will continue
to glow.
2. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 HOUR
and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can
be opened.
3. If “END” is in the display and the “Clean” indicator
remains on, press Clear/Off. The time of day will
appear in the display.
NOTE: When the oven is cool, wipe away any residue
or powdered ash with a damp cloth or paper towel.
Stopping or interrupting a self-cleaning cycle:
If it becomes necessary to stop or interrupt a selfcleaning
cycle.
1. Press Clear/Off.
2. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 HOUR
and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can
be opened.
3. Restart the self-clean cycle once all conditions have
been corrected.
How the ES 200 operates:
CAUTION: NEVER ATTEMPT TO REMOVE EITHER
THE BAKE OR BROIL ELEMENT WITHOUT DISCONNECTING
ELECTRICAL POWER FROM THE
RANGE. ELECTRICAL POWER IS CONNECTED
TO THE ELEMENTS WHENEVER ELECTRICAL
POWER IS CONNECTED TO THE RANGE.
The ES 200 electronic oven control system is made up
of three parts that control the bake and broil elements,
and the locking of the door in the self-clean cycle.
1. Electronic oven control.
2. Oven temperature sensor.
3. Oven door lock mechanism.
