If you have a self cleaning oven, the door will lock automatically as the self cleaning begins. Give it some time ,it will happen. When cleaning is done it will take a while for the door to unlock. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Why is door locked and will not self-clean?


Hey Kimberly, thank you for your inquiry!
I understand that the door on your Frigidaire range is locked and it will not start a self-clean cycle, it is also displaying an error code of "F91". The "F91" error code means that the door has exceeded maximum oven door unlock time. This means you could be experiencing an issue with your door latch, control panel, or a miscommunication within the range. To clear out a miscommunication within your range you need to disconnect power from it for at least ten minutes. I hope that this information is helpful to you. -Matt

Oven Lock stuck open before start of self-cleaning cycle I get a code F9, a flashing lock light, a continous beep and a dr code on the panel when I try to set self-cleaning cycle again.


Thank you for your inquiry, Lucie!

From what you have described your Frigidaire oven lock is stuck open and you are receiving error codes "F9" and "DR". The "F9" error code stands for runaway temperature (overheating). This could be an issue with your RTD (Resistance Temperature Detector) or the EOC (Electronic Oven Control). I would recommend performing a reset on your oven and you can do that by disconnecting from your oven for ten minutes. The "DR" code means that the door is not closed or the door latch is not recognizing the door is closed. This could be an issue with your door latch or control panel. If the reset does not help correct your issues I would recommend having a professional technician out to perform a proper diagnosis and repair. Best of luck! -Matt

How to get the F9 err off when i press the button clean for my oven


The F9 code indicates a problem with the door lock. (Since the oven must lock the door for a cleaning cycle, this will be a "fatal" error for the cleaning cycle.) There are a few possibilities. Open the oven door and look for a L-shaped piece of metal on the top of the oven frame. Check that this lock part is angled to go straight up (12 on an analog clock). If it is rotated slightly, it won't fit properly during the lock cycle.

Clean the latch and wiggle it to check if it will move freely. If these steps don't fix the problem, you need to check the door latch motor and switches. You will need to take off the back panel of the oven to find the motor. Check for loose wires or damaged/loose switches.

If the motor assembly and switches are good, then the central control (clock) probably needs to be replaced.

I hope this helps.

UNplug it and let it sit for a half hour to a hour then plug it back in and it might reset itself.

How do I know when my stove is done self cleaning?

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.
thanks.
