SOURCE: oven door is locked and will not clear. I have tried to reset

Hello JJ, Try pressing the "Clear/OFF" button to stop the self cleaning cycle. It will take up to an hour before the oven will unlock the door, if the oven has started to heat up for the cleaning process

You may have started the default 3 hour self-clean cycle, so you can attempt to reduce the time to 2 hours, by pushing the timer down so it displays "2" which would indicate the shorter cleaning cycle. Then at the end of the timed cleaning cycle, it should open up, once the temperature has cooled sufficiently for it to be safe to open, again, which takes up to an hour to sufficiently cool.

Typically, when an oven is accidently put into self clean mode, the timer "kicks in" and the timer has to run out before the oven will unlock. With the older mechanical knob timers, you could just rotater the timer until you reached the end of the pre-set time. With the electronic timers, you have to let the timer "count down" until it reaches zero before the oven will unlock the oven door.

Here's a link to the Frigidare site where you can select your specific FEF352 version and download a owners manual, free of charge.

http://www.frigidaire.com/manuals

Just enter in FEF352 and then scroll down the page until you find your particular version of teh FEF352 oven/range and then click on "complete owners guide" (english) to get the manual in an Adobe pdf format.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

SOURCE: Cooktop Locked Up!!

Got the same problem.
Here's a work around: Turn breaker off, second person needs to hold the CANCLE/LOCK button (keep holding it!)
Turn breaker back on and keep holding the button, lock feature may turn on, red lock light stays on, KEEP HOLDING THE BUTTON. At the end you will get a F11 (shorted keypad) warning. It may take up to 20 seconds or more but in my case the red lock light goes off, the dashes disappear and everything is back to normal.
Now here are the bad news. This does not fix the problem (I think it's the EOC). Every time the power goes off the red lock light and dashes will come back. It also may require to people to fix this/work around... but, hey, it doesn't cost anything either...

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.

Many microwaves have children locks. Of course they are for safety reasons. they are for tricking the little kids from playing with the big people toys.

Process A
To Turn the Control Lockout Feature On or Off:
  1. Make sure the microwave oven and timer are off.
  2. Press and hold the CANCEL keypad for 3 seconds.
  3. 2 tones will sound and "LOC" or a padlock icon will be displayed (indicating the control is LOCKED).
  4. Repeat to unlock. Again, 2 tones will sound.
Process B
To Turn the Control Lockout Feature On or Off:
  1. Make sure the microwave oven and timer are off.
  2. Press and hold the START keypad for 5 seconds.
  3. 2 tones will sound and "L" will be displayed (indicating the control is LOCKED)
  4. Repeat to unlock. Again, 2 tones will sound.
Hope this helps?

My kenmore W&R locked to start the cleaning process and never turned on, but now won't open. It's been 4 hours.


Verify that the Whirlpool oven is connected to its power source. The oven may sometimes lock down if experiencing a power surge or similar electrical problems. Additionally, check that a fuse hasn't been blown in your home's fuse box. Some older homes may not have the proper wiring to support a high-powered appliance such as a Whirlpool oven. If you are not sure if your wiring is sufficient, consult a local electrician.
  • Check to see if the Whirlpool oven's Control Lock has been turned on, a safety mechanism designed to lock the oven and disable its keypad and display controls. A padlock symbol will be displayed in the corner of the Whirlpool oven's front display panel if it is locked. The oven will not unlock itself on its own even if it is disconnected from its power source. To disable, press and hold the "3" button on the keypad for five seconds until the padlock icon disappears.
  • See if the Whirlpool oven is engaged in its self-cleaning cycle. During the self-cleaning process, the stove will lock its front door and will flash "OVEN LOCKED" on its front display. This is to prevent users from accidentally opening the oven and burning themselves during the high-heat segment in the cleaning process. If you must open the oven, first stop the process by pressing and holding the "OFF/CANCEL" button on the stove's control panel. If the oven remains locked, wait for the internal temperatures to decrease. The locking mechanism is temperature controlled and will not unlock until internal temperatures have cooled.
  • Contact Whirlpool's service department if your Whirlpool oven remains locked and you cannot troubleshoot it or open it. All Whirlpool self-cleaning ovens are covered for five years after the original purchase date. Call the warranty team for assistance by dialing toll-free (800) 253-1301 in the United States, or (800) 807-6777 in Canada. Be prepared to give the oven's model number and purchase date

    How do I unlock the key pad? The display shows locked and I don't know how it locked.


    Here you go.

    The Child Lock shuts down the control panel pads to prevent
    unintended use of the microwave oven.
    When the control is locked, only the Vent Fan and Light pads will
    function.
    To Lock/Unlock Control: The microwave oven and Timer must
    be off. Touch and hold START for 5 seconds until 2 tones sound
    and a lock icon appears on the display. Repeat to unlock and
    remove the lock icon from display.

    Lighting the oven


    Control Lockout (on some models)
    Your control will allow you to lock out the
    touch pads so they cannot be activated when
    touched or cleaning the glass panel.
    To lock the controls:
    Touch the 9 and 0 touch pads at the
    same time for 3 seconds until the
    control beeps twice. The display will
    show LOC continuously and the time
    of day if not blacked out.
    NOTE: All cooking and timing functions will be
    cancelled when locking out the control.
    To unlock the control, touch the
    9 and 0 touch pads at the same time
    for 3 seconds until the control beeps
    twice, and LOC will be removed from
    the display.
    NOTE: Some models have a Control Lockout
    pad. Touch and hold it for 3 seconds to
    lock/unlock.
    Gas/Control Lockout (on some models)
    Your control will allow you to lock out the
    surface burners, oven burners and control
    panel so they cannot be activated.
    To lock/unlock the controls:
    Turn all surface burners off.
    Touch and hold the Gas/Control
    Lockout pad for 3 seconds until the
    display shows LOC ON.
    To unlock the control, touch and hold the
    Gas/Control Lockout pad for 3 seconds
    until the display shows LOC OFF.
    When this feature is on and the touch pads
    are touched, the control will beep and the
    display will show LOC ON.
     The control lockout mode affects all
    controls. No controls will work when this
    feature is activated.
     The adjustment will be retained in memory
    after a power failure.
