Hello there:
Normally every body gets this almost right by cutting the power but there is a trick to this it can be done in 2 different ways depending on the unit
First unplug the unit and wait 15 -30 seconds then plug it back in and wait for 15 to 30 seconds then unplug it again and repeat this step 1 more time then upon the final plug in wait for 5 min and then unlock as you normally would.
now on the newer units the trick is to let it stand unplugged for 1 hour to allow the internal reset device to reset the appliance then plug it back in and then wait 5 min and you should hear it automatically unlock the appliance or you cn simply unlock it as you normally would
BUT REMEMBER DO NOT TOUCH IT FOR THE 5 MINUTES AFTER THE PLUG IN STAGE OR YOU WILL HAVE TO DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN OK
Hope this is very helpful for you please keep me posted on how this is going there is still more that i can show you but i wanted to start with the basics ok?
Best regards Michael

My GE wall oven is stuck on lock mode. I cancelled a self clean (I know, big mistake) and after cooling down it still won't unlock. I've cut the power and still nothing. It's been 3 days! Trying to avoid...


Try putting it back in self clean. Listen to see if it locks. then cancel the self clean. It could be the self clean lock motor has gone bad. The lock hook can be moved to unlock the door by inserting a stiff wire like a coat hanger between the door and the oven and moving the latch over to unlock the door.

Self cleaning


There is a SAFETY INTERLOCK, if you opened it then locked... Is that what you said? It can not clean if the door is not locked.

If you unplug the stove and this will give it a reset. but you may have done some mechanical damage that you will have to inspect to see what it is doing. Is the Locking handle working properly? Is anything jammed ? Ect... Look at the Mechanical components first...

Frigidaire door lock won't reset


Hello Steven Krenz - Was the unit in self-clean mode? Try pressing and holding the "Clear/Off" button to stop any operation of the EOC. Do this at the same time while pushing and hold the light switch to the left of the door lock. Usually this will trick the oven into unlocking the door. If it is ineffective, try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and redo the steps. If door continues to maintain locked while open, the unit may possibly have a faulty door latch or a communication problem with the EOC. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

I was cleaning my oven and one of my kids opened the doore before it was finished and then pushed the cleaning button again but did not shut the over door so the lock is up on the door and it won't shut. ...


unplug unit. remove rear cover, see if latch motor has made it to rest position. microswitch may be holding power off to latch. a slight turn may be all you need to reset latch.
hope this helps

Started to self-clean, locked the door, etc. Had


Hi.

The appliance door is probably locked in consequence of the self cleaning cycle.

Unplug power cord, and allow the oven cooling down for few hours.

If the is still locked, then the high temperature generated in self cleaning cycle may have damaged the door latch, or the electronic control.

Parts must be tested to discover the fault.

Call Frigidaire at the number listed on the owners manual.

Regards.

Opened oven door before it could lock while I was


try unplugging the unit,
depending on your exact model it may just be lost in the programming becuse it sensed the door open while locking so it shuts down the lock for safety
just unplugging if for a few minutes might clear the error enough for the lock to rotate back to closed
position

Locked latch on the self cleaning oven


try wiggling the door latch to get it open if not try the cleaning process, if that works, and see if the door comes unlatched and the light goes off. if not the lock light switch is stuck and it will need to be taken apart and cleaned
