"Locked Door" flashes after interrupting self clean

My wife was cleaning the face of the range when she accidentally hit the self clean button. Not knowing what to do, she just reacted and opened the door. Initially, the locking mechanism had moved over into the lock position so we couldn't shut the door. I figured out how to raise the lid and get into the locking mechanism to move it back manually to the "open" position so we can at least shut the door now. However, it still flashes "Locked Door" and we can't do anything with the stove portion of it. I suspect there's a solenoid that still thinks the mechanism is in the locked position that needs to be reset. I've tried running it through the self clean cycle and recycling power on the unit. No change. Suggestions? TIA, Robert

    Thanks Catriver,

    I think I'm doing something wrong. I pull the power cord and hold the cooking time and delay start pads together while my wife plugs the range back in. At this time, the screen says 72 (degrees) and "test". I press "8" and nothing changes, the screen still just says "test. I tried pressing and holding the "self clean" pad, but nothing happens (tried holding it for about 10 or 15 seconds). The whole time this is happening, it's still flashing "Locked Door".

    What am I doing wrong?

Robert, see if you can get it back home by using the test funtion. Kill the power to the oven. Turn it back on and on the control press and hold the cooking time and delay start pads together. While hold these keys, press the number 8 pad. The words test should appear in the display. Now press and hold the self clean pad and it should cycle the cam through the whole process. Here is what you should see. 1 test (unit is in unlocked position 0 test (moving toward latched pos. 2 test (latched position 0 test (moving toward unlocked pos. 1 test (unit is in unlocked pos. Press cancel to exit the test. See if this gets you going again, let me know, Catriver

Accidentally hit clean button on a Frigidaire Gallery Oven. Hit Cancel button. Oven door won't open.


I appreciate your post, C Maury!
From my understanding your hit the clean button on your Frigidaire wall oven and now the door will not open. I would hold down the cancel button for at least ten seconds, this should unlock the door. If that does not help I would recommend disconnecting power from your wall oven by flipping the household circuit breaker for ten minutes. I hope this information was helpful to some degree. -Matt

I have a Kenmore self-cleaning oven/range model C880665719F0 and have never used the self-clean feature. It came on by itself today, complete with buzzing and locked door and only stops when I pull the AC...


Are you sure that you did not accidentally hit the "CLEAN" button? Once this process starts, you have to let it run it's course. See: http://www.ehow.com/way_5206788_kenmore-self_cleaning-oven-instructions.html One thing you might try is to throw the breaker at the fuse box on the range and see if it will forget the instruction to clean.You may have to leave the breaker off for several hours as I do not know if the machine has battery power or a capacitor that holds the memory in case of power failure. The prudent thing to do is to let it run its course.

Hi,

If you've interrupted the clean cycle or have accidentally set the clean cycle with the oven door open, the latch may have engaged and now the door can't be closed because it will hit the latch. There may be a door activated switch on the front face of the oven. In this case you may need to manually press that door switch with your finger while at the same time canceling the clean cycle to get the latch to retract so the door can close fully again.

Whirlpool self cleaning oven Accubake. 2 yr old


Hi

The oven door lock needs approximately 1 hour to cool down before the oven door can be opened after a self cleaning cycle has finished. If the lock does not open after the oven has cooled down, you can try....1) Unplugging the range or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 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. 2) Set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for 15 minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever or opening the door.

Most ranges today use 3 different types of door locks...one is a solenoid controlled lock ( you hear a loud buzz noise when setting or unlocking the lock and has a arm that you must move to set the lock )...another is a heat sensitive lock ( has a arm that you must move to lock and un-lock, makes no noises and has a spring that slowly moves to lock the door will the oven is heating up )...Some locks are motorized ( no handle to move, the motor locks the door by it's self when you set the range for self clean )... If the motorized and heat sensitive locks fails to open after the self clean cycle, you must access the lock and move it yourself to open the door. On the free standing ranges, most times you must lift the cook top to access the lock mechanism. On built in ovens, the oven must be pulled out to remove the top access panel to get at the lock mechanism. Some build in ovens can have the control console removed to access the lock system. On the heat sensitive style of lock, there are no electrical parts to operate the lock, usually you will need to replace the lock. On the motorized style of lock, you will have to use a ohm/volt meter to test why the motor will not work. On the solenoid style of lock, the solenoid is often mounted on the back of the range and can be accessed by removing the rear panel, some may be mounted at the front, such as in a built in oven. The failure of the solenoid style of lock is normally caused by a bad lock solenoid. In order to get your door open, you must operate the door latch mechanism manually. Unplug or remove power from the range. Take the rear cover off the range. Locate the door latch assembly and operate it manually and open your door. Then check continuity of the solenoid. Some of the latch assemblies have micro switches to supply power also. You may need to check them. You should be able to get the door open and use your range until you can get a tech to repair if you can not repair yourself.

If you've interrupted the clean cycle or have accidentally set the clean cycle with the oven door open, the latch may have engaged and now the door can't be closed because it will hit the latch. There may be a door activated* switch on the front face of the oven. In this case you may need to manually press that door switch with your finger while at the same time canceling the clean cycle to get the latch to retract so the door can close fully again.

Pushed the clean button, the oven locked, and the screen started beeping and flashing f9 or f7. I hit cancel, and the oven is still locked and the clean button is sill flashing.... It has been 10 hrs!


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 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.

*On -some- Frigidaire built ranges, the switch is located behind the right hand side panel and activated by the right hand door hinge. On this model, the side panel may need to be removed to access a malfunctioning door switch.
