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

Try turning it off at the mains, then whilst turning it on, press and hold the cancel button.
Check the fuse and any other electrics on the same ring; eg. Washing Machine - this can indicate that the circuit breaker has tripped, replace any fuses and check integrity of electric on that circut, then flick it back on.

SOURCE: Frigidaire Gallery Series Oven Locked

Not familiar with this particular stove, but it sounds like you activated a child protection lock. To turn these on and off, you have to hit that lock icon and hold it for 4-8 seconds for anything to happen. This is so that the kids won't have sense enough to unlock it, assuming that you locked it to keep them out!

Also, frequently they work  in stages. Hitting it one time (for 4-8 seconds) will lock the panel, hitting it another time will unlock it, hitting it a third time might lock the door, and so on. So RTFM, or just keeping hitting it multiple times for 4-8 seconds each, and see what does what. But the manual should tell you everything you need to know. You can go to the GE website, or to managemyhome.com, which is maintained by Sears, and you should be able to find a PDF copy of the manual if you don't have the manual that came with it.

SOURCE: Oven locked so I can't shut door/operate oven

Thanks a million, solved the problem like a charm. For those that can't find it, it is on the left side orf the OVEN, not the stove. Once you open the door, you'll find it on the frame's upper left side corner, can't miss it. Good luck

SOURCE: door locked after shutting down cleaning cycle earlier than

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.

I went to clean my oven and it locked I pressed cancel the door opened but my oven doesn't work when I hit bake locked signal comes up what do I do


Your oven got locked by a hook that gets initiated when the "Clean" button\option is depressed. Even though you hit cancel and the door opened, it is possible the hook didn't completely recluse back into it's housing.

Might I suggest trying to hit clean and let it take it's course, and try to verify the unit DOES heat up during the cleaning process? This may be the only option you have without calling out for a service call.

I really hope this helps.

I hit the clean button in error and then cancel right away. I shut off the breaker for 15 min and the oven door still won't open


Hello there and welcome to fixya
Well you are in the right direction but here is the thing you need to unplug the oven for at least 1 hour to allow the internal reset feature to erase the previous command.
Then only after the hour is over plug in the oven then you may hear a audiable click sound simply wait 5 min then press the cancel button then attempt to unlock the door it should now open ok?
Hope this is very helpful for you

How do we unlock the oven door! Accidentally pushed a button in front. We have no manual or SS#. Oven was in house when we bought it. We unplugged it to turn off and was able to open the door. Please...


IF you can locate the model number tag (bottom left of door opening) you can look up the manual at www.geappliances.com
The only button on your stove that should make the door lock would be the clean button (self clean model) if that is pressed simply hit the clear/off or cancel key and wait for the door to unlock. IF the self clean option ran for an hour or so, you will have to wait for the oven to cool down before the lock can un-lock (safety feature).
Good luck with this!!

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.
