Question about Kitchen Ranges

Light in oven keeps coming on

My oven light keeps coming on. It goes off if I press in on the door real hard but it's a continuing issue. Can this be fixed? Is it a defect or is there something I can do. This oven is only a few months old and has done this the whole time.

    Thanks.....that looks like something I just should call a technician for as my range is very tightly placed in my kitchen and hard to move in and out from the wall.

I believe that the switch is either defective or it is coming loose from its mount.

You will either need to make sure that the switch is properly fixed in place or replace the switch.

Depending on which particular oven you have, it could be more work than you would like to do yourself.

Your oven is probably under warranty and may be serviced free.

There may also be a screw next to the button that you could tighten and it will work. (hopefully it is this easy)

Be careful in removing switch if you do not disconnect power supply/plug.

How do I stop the door lock from flashing on my self cleaning oven


Hello Brian Pelletier, thanks for your inquiry!

I understand that you are having issues with your door not locking upon using the self-clean feature. It sounds like a possible issue with your EOC (Electronic Oven Control) or dock latch assembly. I would suggest unplugging your range if possible or flipping you breaker for ten minutes to perform reset. If the light continues to flash you may want to seek assistance from a professional for proper diagnosis and repair. -Matt

Oven lock motor frigidaire stove close and open continuously- flashing door lock light


Hi Chris -- if I am understanding you correctly, your door lock is stuck with the door open. If this is the case, locate the oven door light switch that is typically in the top left corner of the unit. Press and hold the switch button in for about 30-60 seconds. While you're doing so, look for a flashing light on the control panel next to the word, "lock". If the latch hook is in the locked position, continue holding the button and press the CLEAR/OFF key on the control panel. Hold the button in until the flashing light goes off. If this does not resolve the issue, please supply your unit's model number and any additional symptoms it was experiencing prior to this event so that I can be of more assistance to you. - Best of Luck!

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.

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.

1800 XL JVM1860BD - won't work


It sounds like your controller may be failing. Or it could be an electrical line problem. Any other electrical itmes giving you trouble? Has anyone measured the voltage level of your power line? It should be around 110-125 volts AC. If it's significantly lower or higher, you may have a bad connection in your breaker panel or in the wiring leading to the home.
