How do I unlock the oven door?

The door is actually open and I can't shut it back because the lock is engaged. It is a Frigidaire Self Cleaning Oven model #FEF365BGWC.

Thanks,
Tammie

    Hi Mark,

    No, I cancelled the cleaning cycle but I can't get the door to shut back because the lock is still engaged. Yes, I know this sounds weird, don't ask how I got myself in this predicament, lol.

    Thanks,

    Tammie

    Oh, phooey!!! I turned off the breaker for a minute or two and started it up again to no prevail. I guess I've done it good this time @#$%. Yes, something told me I should gone to bed instead but I am one of those silly night owls.

    Any other tricks up your sleeve?

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.

    Tammie,

    Turn the power off to the oven for a minute or so. This should reset the controller board, if the controller board is what is energizing the door solenoid.
    Otherwise, it could be the mechanism is broken. I'll look at the assembly and reply.

    What are you doing up this late at night anyway? :-)


  • Mark Egan Jan 24, 2009

    Well, I cant get into SearsPartsDirect right now, which is where I look at exploded views and wiring diagrams.

  • Mark Egan Jan 24, 2009

    Well,

    the latching mechanism can be set manually, but until I can get into the Sears website, I can't tell for sure.

    Look at the oven just above where the door closes, and see if there is a grill of some type. If so, get a flashlight and look up inside the grill, your should see a solenoid connected to a lever, which latches the door. See if you can move the lever with a screwdriver poked through the grill.

    I had the same problem. Door open but lock engaged so door wouldn't close. I called Frigidaire. Hold down the light switch button on the upper left front of the oven then press the Clear/Off button on the control panel...yours might say "Cancel". Door should close and door lock light stop flashing.

I turned on the cleaning switch for my self cleaning wall oven and now it seems to be finished but mthe door lock is still on and the oven keeps making a buzzing noise what do I do?


If the lock does not open after the oven has cooled down, then try this: First, unplug the range or shut off the circuit breaker for ten minutes. Plug the range back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and try moving the door lock lever or opening the door. Next, set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for twenty minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever or opening the door

My frigidaire gas range has a F90 on it when I tried the self cleaning oven feature


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.

7. If all situations above do not solve problem, replace EOC.


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.

Opened oven door before it could lock while I was


try unplugging the unit,
depending on your exact model it may just be lost in the programming becuse it sensed the door open while locking so it shuts down the lock for safety
just unplugging if for a few minutes might clear the error enough for the lock to rotate back to closed
position

Oven Lock stuck open before start of self-cleaning cycle


Sounds like you bent the door where the lock is. You might have to replace the door.

Oven Door Locked


the oven door does lock during self clean, otherwise it will not work. however, the door is supposed to unlock after the oven has cooled. if it is still locked, turn the oven to self clean and wait about a minute and then hit cancel and see if the door unlocks. if not, there may be a probelm with the door lock mechanism.

Oven locked so I can't shut door/operate oven


Thanks a million, solved the problem like a charm. For those that can't find it, it is on the left side orf the OVEN, not the stove. Once you open the door, you'll find it on the frame's upper left side corner, can't miss it. Good luck
