Question about Frigidaire Kitchen Ranges
I tried to self clean my oven. After I have started the self clean I got the F93 error and the door remained locked. I turn off the breaker, didn't unlock the door. I tried many times to start the self cleaning and cancel it. After many times I got a new problem, the fan is running all the time and my door is still locked. What can I do?
Hello Yves Trottier, thank you for your post!
I understand that your Frigidaire range is displaying the error code "F93". Typically, "F93" stands for maximum over door unlock time exceeded. This could be a potential issue with EOC (Electronic Oven Control), motor door latch assembly, or fan motor. I would recommend performing a reset on your range which consists of you disconnecting power from the range for approximately ten minutes. If you continue to experience such issues I would suggest consulting with a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. Hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Testimonial: "Thank you! The engine of the lock is lacking. To stop the fan and unlock the oven you must perform reset, push the door and hold closed, put the clock, start the self-cleaning and cancel. The fan stops and the door unlock. A technician should come to change the engine today for $ 200 Thank you again, Y."

SOURCE: Self clean oven door lock
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.
*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.

SOURCE: frigidaire oven door locked
SOME RANGES ARE DESIGNED TO LOCK IF THE CONTROL SENSES A TEMPERATURE EXTREME. IF THERE IS A FAILURE OF THE SENSOR THAT MAKES THE CONTROL THINK THE TEMP IS UP, IT WILL LOCK THE DOOR TO PREVENT INJURY. REMOVE THE BACK PANEL AND FIND THE OVEN SENSOR LEADS COMING OUT THE BACK OF THE OVEN. DISCONNECT THE SENSOR AND CHECK THE RESISTANCE. AT ROOM TEMP IT SHOULD BE SOMEWHERE AROUND 1084 OHMS. IF IT IS NOT CLOSE,
THE SENSOR IS BAD. PLUG IN A NEW SENSOR AT THAT CONNECTOR AND THE DOOR SHOULD UNLOCK. THEN GET INSIDE THE OVEN, REMOVE THE OLD SENSOR, AND REPLACE IT WITH THE ONE PLUGGED IN.

SOURCE: Oven door won't unlock
I had the same problem on my Kenmore Electric Range. Door would not unlock. Tried pressing "Off" for multiple seconds, but still would not unlock. No error codes. Clock was displaying normally. Finally decided to try running it thru the self cleaning operation to get it to cycle thru locking and unlocking the door. When I started self clean, the door automatically went thru the auto lock and "locked" appeared in the display. I then hit "Off" to clear it and stop the cleaning cycle. The door then unlocked as normal!

SOURCE: The door on my frigidaire
You said, The door on my frigidaire stove model # FEF389WJCC locked and we are unable to get it open. We weren't self cleaning the oven so I'm not sure what happened. Any suggestions how to fix it? We did try turning the breaker off and that didn't help.
Did you leave the breaker off for 5 minutes or just flicked it off and on?
It may be a faulty door Latch
The door latch consist of a micro switch and solenoid. Once the door is closed and the latch handle.
But first try to deactivate the door lock
To activate the Oven Lockout feature:
1. Press and hold for 3 seconds
2. After 3 seconds a beep will sound, LOC will appear & "DOOR
LOCKED" will flash in the display. Once the oven door is locked
the "DOOR LOCKED" indicator will stop flashing.
To reactivate normal oven operation:
1. Press and hold for 3 seconds. A beep will sound. LOC will
clear. The "DOOR LOCKED" will continue to flash until the oven
door has completely unlocked
2. The oven is again fully operational.
Let me know if these procedures work for you!!
Please remember to leave a rating!

your model number confirms that your range was manufactured by WCI (Frigidaire). although this doesn't help you now, it may help if parts are needed.
now, there is an indepth guide online to fixing this common problem and I would like you to go through it and see if it helps you solve your problem.
If you have found this site previously then I apologise, if you still need help, by all means post again and someone more qualified may help.
