How to unlock oven Door frigidaire?


Usually the door locks during a self cleaning cycle for safety reasons. If the self cleaning cycle did not finish properly (over temp sensor trip, etc.) it could end up with the lock deployed or it could be that the locking mechanism failed in the lock position (unlikely!). Turn off the power to the oven by finding the correct circuit breaker in your electrical distribution box. Keep it off for some 30 seconds. If the oven is ok it will reset and unlock the door. If it has a failure in the locking mechanism you should be able to access that part from the top or you may have to call a repair person. Hope this helps!

We a kitchen aid oven the door was accidentally lock. Can you find out how to open it? Whirlpool owns kitchen aid


  • Look for a manual lever to unlock the oven. If there is one, it will probably swing back and forth horizontally, just below the upper edge of the oven door

  • Swing the locking lever, if one is present, all the way to the left. This should unlock the oven. If there is no manual lever to unlock the oven, it may be unlocked using push-button controls.

    Check to see if the oven is in a self-cleaning cycle, or has just completed a self-cleaning cycle. If so, the door will unlock automatically once the oven has finished the cleaning cycle and cooled completely, which may take several hours. You cannot unlock the oven before it has cooled.

  • 4

    Unlock the "Clean/Off" button. Depending on the brand and model of your oven, the button may display both of these designations or just one. If your oven door is locked, but the oven is not warm and is not in a cleaning cycle, unlock it by pressing and holding the "Clean/Off" button.

    No power on stove after using self clean oven door is locked and cant be open is there a braker swith somewhere


    A self cleaning oven that won't open after the self cleaning cycle is usually the oven has not had time to cool down from the high temperatures of cleaning. You should wait at least an hour to open it. You can also try to unplug the unit or turn of the breaker to the over for at least five minutes. You will then have to reset the clock and then try to move the door lock. If that does not work, you can set the self clean cycle again for but only allow it to work for 15 minutes, then cancel the cycle and let the oven cool and then again try to move the door lock or open the door If that does not work, then the lock will have to be accessed and moved manually to open the door
    Some ovens need the door to be manually unlatched before the controls are set to the off position before they can be unlocked.

    I turned on the cleaning switch for my self cleaning wall oven and now it seems to be finished but mthe door lock is still on and the oven keeps making a buzzing noise what do I do?


    If the lock does not open after the oven has cooled down, then try this: First, unplug the range or shut off the circuit breaker for ten 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. Next, set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for twenty minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever or opening the door

    I cant get my self cleaning oven to unlock... what do I do, I cant find my manual


    Unplug the unit or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Plug the unit back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and gently try moving the door lock lever (is so equipped) or opening the door.
    or
    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 (is so equipped) or opening the door.
    If these procedures fail to correct the condition, the lock must usually be accessed and moved manually to open the door.
    Some model ovens require the oven door to be manually unlatched before the controls are returned to the OFF position or else the door may not be able to be unlocked. Check the owner's manual for proper operating procedures.

    Whirlpool RF367LXS Ceramic Glass Range not working


    Almost every time I run the SELF CLEAN cycle on my Whirlpool Self Cleaning range, it fails to function after completing the self clean cycle, even though it completes the cycle of cleaning and unlocks the door. What I do to solve the problem, I power off the BREAKER for the range at the main electrical panel in the house and wait 30 seconds, then power on....and the whole system works just fine until the next time I clean it. This has been a problem from the beginning. My theory is that the electronics get heated up and, like a computer, the system stalls out and needs a complete hard reboot. Good luck!
