Used self cleaning process on my oven yesterday and today the oven will not turn on, we keep getting message to unlock the oven door even though it is. What can we do?


The oven gets extremely hot during the self-cleaning mode... the door switch might have got stuck in locked position, or broken in locked position (to be replaced), let's hope it's just stuck...which you'll need to work the mechanical lock-unlock latching back and forth to hopefully unstick....and if that doesn't work just re-run self-cleaning process but this time let the oven cool completely before unlocking the door. Hope this helps.

How do you clean a self-cleaning gas oven?


If it's one with pyrolytic oven coatings then you empty the oven and turn the oven to maximum for about three hours.

The linings will get hot enough to burn deposits to a light ash residue which you can then wipe off with a damp cloth when the oven has cooled down.

Some modern ovens have a self-cleaning setting on one of the controls. All it does is to automate the process and to lock the oven door until the cycle has completed.

Note that you will smell the fumes as the oven self-cleans and they can set off any smoke alarms you have. Also, if the oven is really filthy and thickly caked in grease then the pyrolysis will not be fully effective. Note that oven shelves and other metal fittings and also door glass are not pyrolytic and any deposits will get baked on, so clean those separately first. Really stubborn deposits will come off using a caustic-soda based cleaners, but you must wear suitable protective gloves, glasses and clothing and exercise extreme care when using them as caustic soda burns are far, far, worse than acid burns.

Frigidaire electric drop in oven has blinking door locked light on. F9 error message. Tried to self clean, oven never got hot, door locked and can't get open. Been 2 days. Self clean light will not come...


http://b2b.frigidaire.com/support/manuals.asp
this is a free download site from frigedaire if you have your model number you can download your complete manuel i was unable to find the F9 code for an oven
but suspect it has to do with door lock switchs if you can download your manuel from site it may help you can try shutting off breaker for oven and see if it will reset
good luck ron

When I try to start the self-cleaning oven, ''door'' appears in the display, and then the display goes to F5 E1. The door doesn't even try to lock. I have a Whirlpool Self-cleaning electric range Model #...


there are switches under the cooktop that go bad frequently. i do not recommend ever using the self clean mode in an oven. the oven gets so hot that things have a tendency to melt because they dont build stuff like they used to. there is inadequate insulation in modern ovens. use easy off and follow the label directions. it'll be cheaper in the long run, trust me.

How to self clean


Depending on the condition of the oven, it could take up to 4 hours.

A couple things to remember is: (1) Make sure you do not turn the light on inside the oven. The clean cycle should disable it. (2) Lock the door if it does not lock itself. (3) Do not open the door during the clean cycle.

Remember the self cleaning temperature is extremely high. Do not allow children in the area while doing it.

Self-clean not cleaning


I was wrong (I think).  the baking element probably was burnt out as the repairman said.  He replaced it and I thought selfclean still wasn't working.  In fact, I think I just had to give the self-clean function more time.  Also, I was judging by smell.  We have become used to a bad odor during self clean which was missing when it was broken and still missing after the repair.  Bottom line, the oven was clean after the baking element was replaced, sans smell.

Cleaning my self-clean oven


Turn the oven to "clean" and lock the door if the oven has a manual door lock. The oven may have an automatic timer for the clean setting. If it doesn't then you'll have to turn it off yourself in three or four hours. Don't be surprised if the oven puts out a very foul smell while it's cleaning itself as that's normal for an oven that hasn't been cleaned in so long. After it's done, wait for the oven to cool and then wipe out the ash from the inside of the oven.
