    My frigidaire over keeps beeping after I attempted to self clean and an error message of F90 appeared. Door lock keeps going forever. It will unlock however then relock and start beeping all over again. I've unplugged overnight and still the F90 reappears. I just wanted to clean the oven and the self cleaning function never started. Please Help! Thanks

In our case the door was open but the lock was latched. Holding the Clear/Off button had no effect. We unplugged the unit. Then while one person held the oven door light switch button in, another person plugged the unit in. While still holding the light switch button in, the Clear/Off button was pressed for 10-15 seconds, at which point "locked" appeared in the display. Then, while still holding the light switch button in, pressing and holding the Clear/Off button unlocked the unit and everything worked!

My range door is open and in the locked position. How can I close it? To close an open door when it’s in the locked position and the door is open, press and hold the oven door light switch while following these simple steps:


  1. Program the oven to self-clean.

  2. Wait 20 seconds.

  3. Cancel self-clean.

  4. Wait 20 seconds.

My oven door remained locked after the cleaning cycle- model # FES365ESA. I flipped the breaker and then turned the oven on just to 350. Then, I held the Clear/Off button until the door opened. Don't know why it worked, but it did. Hope this helps anyone else. There seems to be no mention of it in the owner's manual either.

Posted on Apr 10, 2008

Hold in the door button and push broil until the latch makes a 360 degree
then the door lock should stop flashing and the oven will work again

Here's what worked for us when the oven door wouldn't unlock. Hold the LOCK button down until the display shows "LOCKED" with a little padlock icon. Then select the OFF button. Yaaaay... dinner is only an hour late!

My locking pin was slightly bent in a manner that would not let the door fully shut.  I bent it so that it would line up with the door hole.

Service man said we need new electronic overlay and oven probe--$250 plus !1
Tech 17 solution confusing- where is "cancel" button?
"hold" in light switch?
Help us who are not so sharp.
Unplugging did not help.

I just did this, Hold the clear button until it beeps. When you get it open and shut it hold the clear again, close it and in a few seconds the door unlocks by itself.

OK, here's what I did. My company leaned against the door and LOCKED it. No freaking manual thanks to the previous owner. SOOO, I held down the Clear key until the little red lock went away. Then I held down the Clear key again until the "Door Locked" display went off. YAY, success!!! Hope that helps!

SOURCE: How do I unlock the oven door?

If the lock is engaged, is the oven in a self cleaning cycle? If so, cycle power to the oven, that should cancel the self cleaning cycle.

Reply back if that worked or not and I'll try to help you further.

SOURCE: Oven door lock engaged while NOT in cleaning mode with door open

The question isn't that clear as to what your problem is but try unplugging the stove or turning the power off to the stove at your main fuse/breaker box and then turn it back on. You should then have the oven door unlocked

Door locks and F9 fault codes


The F9 code indicates there is a problem with the door lock.

Try disconnecting the power to the range for 10 seconds and reconnecting. Open the oven door and hold the door switch plunger in while you try these things. Put the control into clean for 5 minutes then cancel clean. You must hold the door switch plunger in for the 5 minutes.

Try canceling the clean cycle without putting the control into clean.

Oven door lock engaged while NOT in cleaning mode with door open. Will not disengage. Cycled main power, cancel button does not work; Oven also inoperable. HELP! Appreciate any tips or tricks to get it...


your oven uses a motor lock latch #316028101 around 100 dollars the motor or the linkages to the motor are most likely bad . the control board could be supplying the voltage to the motor is which case the board would be bad if the are no sensors telling it to lock the door If you are not pretty handy with a schematic and a meter I would suggest you call someone. F3 can be a thermal fuse or maybe the wrong resistance on the over sensor

Our GE Profile JTP18 keeps flashing "door lock" since we ran a self clean


most of the time a simple fix.... http://www.geappliances.com/search/fast/infobase/10004586.htm
you have to trick the door lock mech into cycling through the cleaning process (takes about 20 seconds)
Print Range - “LOCKED DOOR” flashes in the display

If “LOCKED DOOR” is flashing in the display of your range or oven, and the self-clean cycle has not been selected, follow the steps below to reset your control:

Motorized Switch
    1. With the door open, locate the door jamb switch on the face of the oven. It will look like a small black post or dowel.
    2. Push it in until the oven cavity light goes off, indicating that the oven believes the door is closed.
    3. While you hold the door jamb switch in this position, complete the following steps.
    4. Press the Clean pad, wait 10 seconds.
    5. When the cycle initiates, press the clear/off or cancel pad immediately to cancel it.
    6. Wait 10 seconds for the display to clear.
    7. The door should unlock and there should not be a need for service.
Manual Switch
    1. Press the Clean pad.
    2. Close the door.
    3. Slide the latch to lock the door.
    4. Hit the cancel button immediately.
    5. Unlock the door.
If the above does not correct the situation, a service technician will need to check your cooking product. To obtain in or out of warranty repair on Major Appliances, you may call 1-800-GE-CARES (800-432-2737) or schedule service online.
