There are a couple of mentions I found on Frigidaire site I copied and pasted hope its some thing you can use.

Stopping or Interrupting a Self-Cleaning Cycle:

If it becomes necessary to stop or interrupt a selfcleaning cycle.
1. Press Clear/Off.

2. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 hour and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can be opened.

3. Restart the self-clean cycle once all conditions have been corrected.

The appliance is equipped with an electronic oven control and has an auto locking door latch feature.

When the self clean cycle is programmed, the door is locked by a motor operated latch system. The interior of oven does'nt need to heat up to 500°F/260°C before the door locks. However, until the temperature inside oven reaches 500°F/260°C, the self-clean program can be canceled and door will unlock immediately. After oven reaches temperatures over 500°F/260°C, the door will not unlock until temperature drops below 500°F/260°C.

All Self-Clean Gas and Electric with a single micro switch on the left side of the doorlock cam.

After selecting a self-clean function the door lock motor circuit fails to operate causing an F9 fault code.

Open lock motor winding, micro switch failure, open lock motor relay on EOC, binding of the lock latch and/or rod causing the EOC (electronic oven control) to time out the locking sequence with an F9 fault code. Thus, the EOC can’t be cleared or reset through a power down reset.

After determining what caused a failure in the door lock circuit, reset the EOC electronic oven control so the customer can use the oven. Follow the timing locking sequence of the lock motor cam below. (see photo micro switch lever location)

• Remove power from unit.
• Restore power to unit and count to 12.
• Push micro switch lever IN count to 2.
• Release micro switch lever count to 2.
• Push micro switch lever IN count to 15.
• Release lever and set the clock time of day.
• Program a bake or broiler function, but do not program a clean cycle. Doing so will cause the F9 code time out fault. Order and replace defective components.

Note: If the EOC does not reset, repeat the above timing sequence with a jumper wire across the micro-switch terminals. If the F9 fault code does not clear, then replace the EOC. (electronic oven control)

I have to add I do NOT think this is what you are desribing to us but it is allI can bring up on door locks on Frigidaire site

Self-Cleaning Oven Doors: ‘Lock at Random’
Oven door locks at random. This may occur during bake cycle or even when the range is not in use. Failure is often very intermittent and usually does not occur when the service technician is present making an accurate diagnosis very difficult. Often the EOC and sensor are replaced unnecessarily.

There are three possible causes for this; 1. A defective EOC. 2. A defective switch on the door latch/motor assembly. (or) 3. An internal short in the oven door light switch.


1. Defective EOC. The software in the EOC could erroneously be initiating a locking sequence without the clean function being selected. Also the contacts in the latching relay on the EOC can short circuit or stick in the closed position. This is the least likely cause of the problem.

2. Defective switches on door latch/motor assembly. This failure will only apply to ranges that have two switches in the monitor circuit of the latch motor assembly. These switches will be labeled Lock Switch A and Lock Switch B on the wiring diagram. On the lock motor assembly switch A is the lower switch and switch B is the upper switch. The EOC constantly monitors the condition (open or closed) of the microswitches and if the switch contacts fail either open when they should be closed or vice versa, then the EOC will run the lock motor to try to correct the condition. This will sometimes also result in a fault code displayed on the EOC.

3. Internal short in oven door light switch. This is the most frequent cause of the intermittent nuisance locking of the oven door. On many models the oven light switch has two independent electrical circuits. One set of contacts serves as an interrupt circuit to the latch motor to prevent the motor from running if the door is open. The other set of contacts supplies line voltage to the oven lamp or oven lamp relay when the door is open.There is a specific type of short circuit that can occur inside the body of the switch which allows the voltage that would normally be supplied to the oven light circuit to bleed through to the latch motor contacts and cause the motor to run. This failure is difficult to diagnose unless you are present at the time of failure. There is one technique that can be used to achieve an accurate diagnosis when this failure is suspected. Locate the wire on the E4 or MDL terminal of the EOC this is usually a pink wire that comes from the oven door light switch. Disconnect the wire and insulate the terminal with electrical tape.

Secure the wire so that it can not touch any other electrical components or short to ground. With this wire disconnected and secured allow the customer to continue using the range to see if the nuisance locking occurs again. If it does then there is no doubt that the cause is an internal short in the body of the oven door light switch.

Hot Surface Indicator Lights

When you receive a complaint from a customer that the hot surface indicator lamp on their smooth glass top range stays on after the cooktop has cooled down, you can be certain that the problem is NOT in the surface element switch.

The hot surface indicator light operates on an independent circuit that is not connected to the element control switch. There is a separate set of contacts in the limiter on every element that are used to turn the light on or off as required.

The terminals for these contacts often have one grey wire and one black wire connected to them. To diagnose the internal contacts you must disconnect the power to the range, disconnect either the grey or black wire, which ever is most convenient, and test for continuity between the terminals of the limiter contacts. If the top is cold there should be no continuity.

The limiter is a non serviceable part . You must replace the entire element if the hot surface light contacts have stuck closed.

Below is pictured a typical circuit in which this kind of failure can occur. You can see that L1 is present at the lower left corner of the door switch common terminal. If the internal short occurs, L1 voltage is delivered to the normally open contact pictured at the top right corner of the door switch diagram. This will cause the latch motor to run.

Hi lost the manual..need to start self cleaning


Hello,

An electric oven is a great oven choice because of the advanced self-cleaning feature often available on certain models. A self-cleaning oven uses high temperatures to clean crusty baking spills and splatters and free its owner from having to use harsh chemicals to clean his oven. The following 4 steps lay out how a self-cleaning oven works.

Step 1 - Setting the Self Cleaning Mode
Depending on the style and brand of oven you own, you start the self-cleaning cycle by setting the oven's operating dial to "Clean," a function that can be as simple as setting a timer knob or pushing one or two buttons.

Step 2 - Cleaning Cycle
Once you have set the self-cleaning cycle, the oven coils-both lower and upper--will begin to heat. These self-cleaning ovens are protected from high oven temperatures damage by heavy insulation installed in their walls and door during the manufacturing process.

Step 3 - Automatic Door Lock
When the oven reaches a pre-determined temperature, the lock on the oven door engages, preventing anyone from opening the door until the oven temperature has cooled.

Step 4 - Removing Residual Ashes
Once the cleaning process is completed, including cooling, you can then remove the residual ash by wiping the bottom oven surface with a damp cloth or sponge.


Hope this helpout

How do use self clean service?


CAUTION: SHOULD AN OVEN FIRE OCCUR,
CLOSE THE OVEN DOOR AND TURN OFF THE
OVEN. IF THE FIRE CONTINUES, USE A FIRE
EXTINGUISHER. DO NOT PUT WATER OR FLOUR
ON THE FIRE. FLOUR MAY BE EXPLOSIVE.
To set the controls for a self-clean cycle:
For satisfactory results use a 2 hour self-clean cycle for
light soils and a 3 hour cycle for average to heavy
soils.
1. Be sure the clock shows the correct time of day.
2. Press Clean. "— — —" appears in the display.
3. Press the Up Arrow until "3:00" appears in the
display for a 3 hour cycle, or press the Down Arrow
until "2:00" appears in the display for a 2 hour cycle.
4. As soon as the Up Arrow or Down Arrow is
released, "CLN" appears in the display.
5. As soon as the controls are set, the motor driven
lock will begin to close automatically 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).
6. The "LOCK" light will glow until the cleaning cycle is
completed or cancelled, and the oven
temperature has cooled.
When the self-clean cycle is completed:
1. The time of day or “END” will appear in the display
window and the “Clean” and "LOCK" light will continue
to glow.
2. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 HOUR
and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can
be opened.
3. If “END” is in the display and the “Clean” indicator
remains on, press Clear/Off. The time of day will
appear in the display.
NOTE: When the oven is cool, wipe away any residue
or powdered ash with a damp cloth or paper towel.
Stopping or interrupting a self-cleaning cycle:
If it becomes necessary to stop or interrupt a selfcleaning
cycle.
1. Press Clear/Off.
2. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 HOUR
and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can
be opened.
3. Restart the self-clean cycle once all conditions have
been corrected.

TO THE ELEMENTS WHENEVER ELECTRICAL
POWER IS CONNECTED TO THE RANGE.
The ES 200 electronic oven control system is made up
of three parts that control the bake and broil elements,
and the locking of the door in the self-clean cycle.
1. Electronic oven control.
2. Oven temperature sensor.
3. Oven door lock mechanism.

Delf-cleaning oven (Frigidaire) caught fire while cleaning. Any recalls on this problem? Stove was purchased about one and a half years ago.


yorkbill,
Wecome to fixya,
Huuum at your service.

You said, your self-cleaning oven (Frigidaire) caught fire while cleaning.
Any recalls on this problem? Stove was purchased about one and a half years ago.

Please give me the model number so I may check for recalls!


If you attempted to clean the oven with drippings or heavy food on the bottom of the oven from spills,
then you can have a small fire in the oven .
But it will burn out.
The user guides all tell the reader that if you drip or spill food in the oven to first, "wipe out loose soil to reduce smoke and avoid damage!"
