I have taken the door off to clean the oven having done this before without problems. However, i noticed that where the tiny catches that lock on to the "arms" in order to remove it, they were still locked on to them when i had removed it. the manual said they would be released.
I managed to release only one of them and now the arm is at right angles to the oven door and i cannot manage to reinsert the oven door. I' afraid to push this arm down so that it resembles the other one as i don;t want to damage it - is it spring loaded? it feels very hard to push which i why i haven;t. I don;t know how to replace the door. The arm of the left is ok. the one on the right is at 90 degress and the smaller arm above it is floppping about. What can i do please?
I just fixed this. Rest the bottom of the door on a rug and push the long arm down by foot, as it is spring loaded it needs a lot of force. Once it is down slip the catch of the smaller arm on to the hook. Both sides will now be the same and you insert the door gently into the oven. Hope this helps.

Whirlpool door are a bit difficult to remove from the stove. the owners manual may tell you what you need to do to remove it. Once you have it off then the door can be taken apart by removing tye screws that hold it together. This should be done on a flat surface and taking a lot of care. Remember how it comes apart and reverse the procedure when putting it back together. If you break a glass they are expensive to replace if available.
It should go without saying that it is IMPOSSIBLE to answer your question without first knowing the MAKE and MODEL of your oven.
That being said, if you just ran a self-clean cycle, you cannot open the door until the oven has cooled. If you have not just run a self-clean cycle, the interlock may have failed.
Open the door and look at the hinges the connect the oven door to the oven body, on each side you will notice a piece that can be moved back and forth without moving the door, roll each side toward the oven body this should be the locked position, now try to close the door and you will notice the hinges lift up. At this time you need to pull up and push forward on the door and both hinges will come out.
in order to get the door open you can remove the door locking motor and turn the locking shaft.
there could be a problem with the excessive heat from the oven during the cleaning cycle check with frigidaire and see if there is any kind of recall for this problem
Had the same problem. How I fixed it, was by using a very thin, and I mean really thin, flat tip screw driver and a flash light. Unplug the stove. Use the flash light to look at the very top of the oven door. You should see in the air vent slats a silver hook. Use the screw driver to go through the vent slats and push the lock open. Now, you should be able to open your door. But we arent done yet. With the door open, plug the stove back in. Close the door and wait for the F9 to flash. Now open your door, and on the right side you should see a tiny peg sticking out on the open oven. Its for the light to come on when the oven door is open and also to let the oven know the door is ajar. Push it in and wait. The door latch circuit should reset like normal, and you will see the latch move back into its normal open position. Which resets the F9 error and allows you once again to use your oven like normal.
You would need to take the door apart, and even then the glass isn't really made to be taken apart. So it COULD be done, but it would be easier to buy new glass and replace it. It all depends on how much you want it to look clean.
F-9 means:Door lock safety circuit on ERC sensed Replace the door latch assembly
To solve this...Just press and hold the door latch to unlock position and then press
cancel for a few seconds. The latch will return to its original position
This will probably fix it..but if doesnt work try this Try unplugging the oven from the electrical power. May release the
lock, which is held in place by a tiny micro switch. If not and while
the electric is still off or the oven is unplugged, use a bright light
flashlight to look through the slot where the lock is in the oven, not
in the door.
You may be able to use a thin blade screwdriver to move the lock to the
release position. Check the angle of the lever. A slightly bent lever
handle also can cause this type of condition.
If all else fails, remove the access panel on the front of the oven to
access the locking device and release it. May have to disconnect the
wires to the lock which will allow door to function but not during any
self cleaning modes.
