Question about Frigidaire GLEB27S7A Electric Single Oven
Our kitchen aid gas floor model oven door won t open after self clean cycle. i have tried unplugging the unit to try to reset unit. after reading another post, i tried intiating the self clean cycle again but when i attempt this the display reads "to hot". when i try to intiate any action the display reads "to hot". there is also a period ticking sound coming from inside the unit....
Hello there and welcome to Fixya
This is a fairly common problem with self cleaning ovens
The problem normally is that the user has interrupted the clean cycle and the door is locked by default or the door lock assy has failed all together .
Now here is the thing these ovens have a built in memory module that stores a number of commands that the user has input in it like self clean or broil ect.ect so what you will have to do is to clear the memory and it is done like this.
First unplug the oven and do not touch it leave it sit for a minimum of 1 hour this will reset the memory module
Now only after the hour is up plug in the oven and you may hear a beep ora click if so great wait a few min then you can press the cancel button then try to open the door again.
Now if this has not worked then you will have to remove the top part of the oven to get to the latch asy which means you may have to remove part of the back of the oven or the entire back piece depending on your model to be able to remove the screws that hold in the top of the oven on the back then you should be able to see the latch mechanism
Now remove it and have it tested or simply replace it ok
Hope this helps please keep me informed on how this is going i can send you a link to a site that has a video on how this is done if needed ok to help you repair this
Best regards Mike

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.
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.
