Either the door switch has failed or the control board is not sensing the door is closed. Try turning the power off for a couple minutes and back on. The oven is supposed to go through a diagnostic cycle when the power is applied and rotate the door latch. If this doesn't help you will probably have to call for service since it is in warranty.
I will look up your model and see if there is anything else you can do that won't void your warranty.
Thanks/Mike

    You may also try starting a self-clean mode. This should activate the latch. Once the self-clean has started, cancel it and see if the latch rotates to the unlocked position.

    About the only thing left that I can think of is to remove the trim and pull the oven out enough to get the top off so you can manually turn the door latch to get the door open.

    It would be good to double check the wiring to the oven to make sure none of the wires are crossed. Usually if an oven is wired improperly it will blow out the transformer and the control won't even come on, but if the repairman comes out and finds it miswired you may have to pay for the repair. The only thing about the wiring that might be the problem is if the neutral and ground are crossed and the neutral and ground are not tied together at your switch box.

How does the self-clean feature work on a Frigidaire CFEF366EMB model?


Hi Beverly,

I understand that you are looking to run your self-clean feature on your Frigidaire range, model# CFEF366EMB.

-To start this you will remove all racks and make sure that any excessive spillovers are cleaned up as best as you can.
-Next you will press the "Clean" button, and the display will show "---".
-Press the up or down arrows to select the length of time you want the oven to clean. Usually 2 or 3 hours.
-The door will automatically lock once your time has been chosen and the "LOCK" indicator light will flash. DO NOT open the door while the light is flashing. (it takes about 15 seconds for the oven door to lock).
-"Cln" will appear in the display during the self-clean cycle and the "LOCK" light will continue to glow until the self-cleaning cycle is complete or cancelled and the oven has cooled.

When the self-clean cycle has completed:
-The time of day or "END" will appear in the display window and the "Clean" and "LOCK" light will continue to glow.
-Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 HOUR and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can be opened.
-If "END" is in the display and the Clean indicator light remains ON, press the "CLEAR/OFF" button and the time of day will appear on the display.
-When the oven is cool, wipe away any residue or powdered ash with a damp cloth or paper towel.

-Best Regards-

I have a flashing locked door light and cannot open the oven.


The oven is locked because the temperature inside the oven has not dropped below the locking temperature. Press Clear/Off button and allow the oven to cool. Oven door should open once it has been cooled below the locking temp.

F90 code flashing and i cant reset it


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.

Amana EvenAir Convection Plus Self Cleaning Oven will not unlock.


My oven was locked and would not open. No lock light was on but the oven was clearly locked. F9 error when I hit certain buttons.

Try this. I unplugged the oven for about 5 minutes. Plugged back in. A LOCK light came on. Held down "Oven Cancel" for a few seconds. Door opened and lock light went off. No more F9 error when I hit those buttons.

"door lock" light stays on and oven won't work


On mine, I was able to take of the face plate and unscrew the metal locking arm from the motor. Once i wiggled the locking arm away from the locked position I was able to open the door. Once i opened the door, the little motor which controls the locking arm automatically rotated to the unlocked position and cleared teh "locked door" message on the control panel.
