SOURCE: Self cleaning oven won't lock

Generally
There is a motor that lets the latch slide out and catch the door either this latch motor isn't getting power from the board or the motor is bad. You will have to need a volt meter and a wire diagram, and take the covers off to see the motor and board.

Always remove power until you get the item open and can see whats going on before reapplying power.
If you don't feel confident I recommend calling in a repair man.

Thanks a million, solved the problem like a charm. For those that can't find it, it is on the left side orf the OVEN, not the stove. Once you open the door, you'll find it on the frame's upper left side corner, can't miss it. Good luck

Frigidaire Gallery series model GLEB30T8CBA key pad not working


Hello Dana, thank you for your post!
From my understanding your Frigidaire oven is displaying an error code of "F8" and your keypad is not working properly. An "F8" error stands for runaway temperature (overheating). I would recommend performing a reset on your oven and you can do that by disconnecting the power cord for at least ten minutes.

If that does not help correct your issue then you could have a problem with your RTD (Resistance Temperature Detector) or the EOC (Electronic Oven Control). I would suggest having a professional technician out to perform a proper diagnosis and repair. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Oven is stuck in lock mode


Hi Lora, this is AP!

Based on the description of the Frigidaire electric range provided it appears the door lock feature has been activated. In order to cancel the Oven Lockout feature, press clear off and hold for 3 seconds. The control will unlock the oven door and resume normal operation.

This door lock feature is activated by pressing clear off and holding for 3 seconds. "Loc" will appear in the display, the "Door Locked" indicator light will flash and the motor driven door lock will begin to close automatically. Allow about 15 seconds for the oven door to lock. Once the oven door is locked, the current time of day will appear in the display. If any control pad is pressed with the oven lockout feature active, "Loc" will appear in the display until the control pad is released.

This information is also located in the owner's manual should you like to view it again, you may retrieve a manual using your model# and the following link http://www.frigidaire.com/Owner-Center/Product-Support-Manuals/.

I hope this information helps to some degree - thanks for your question, and please do not hesitate to reconnect.

Good Morning ostamos, thank you for your post!

Are you seeking information on how to reset the lock mechanism of your Frigidaire range? If so, and the oven lockout feature is activated, try pressing CLEAR/OFF and hold for roughly 5 seconds. The control will unlock the oven door and resume normal operation. I ask that you please follow up with a response on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your range status has changed successfully. Thank you!

If a selfclean oven door lock fails to open after the self clean cycle and sufficient cooling time has elapsed (approximately 1 hour), there are several things you can try.
  1. Unplug the unit or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Plug the unit back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and gently try moving the door lock lever (is so equipped) or opening the door.

  2. Set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for 15 minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever (is so equipped) or opening the door.

If these procedures fail to correct the condition, the lock must usually be accessed and moved manually to open the door.
Most self cleaning ranges today use one of 3 different types of door locking systems. One design is solenoid driven, another is heat activated and the last, motorized.
  • A solenoid controlled system can be identified by the lever that must be set to lock the door, plus a loud buzzing or clunking noise heard when locking or unlocking the door.
  • The heat sensitive lock mechanism also has a locking lever but makes no noises. It instead utilizes a coiled spring to slowly lock the door as the oven heats.
  • The motorized design has no lever to move, the motor locks the door by itself when the range is set for self clean. The motor may have made an audible whining or ratcheting sound when in use.

A motorized or heat sensitive style lock will usually be located beneath the cook top on free standing ranges. The cook top would usually need to be lifted to access the locking mechanism. On built in ovens, the oven must usually be removed from its enclosure (or at least partially) in order to remove the top panel to gain access to the locking mechanism. On some built in oven models, the lock assembly may be able to be accessed by removing the control console.
sc-lock-geheatsensitive.gifOn the heat sensitive style (illustrated), there are no electrical parts used to operate the lock which could fail, so the whole mechanism will usually need to be replaced if not operational.
With the motorized lock mechanism, a volt/ohm meter is required to try to determine why the locking motor will not operate. The failure could be in the motor itself or the power supply leading to it, including a door activated and/or console mounted switch and switches on the latch mechanism itself.
On solenoid activated designs, the solenoid coil is a common failure point which is often mounted on the back of the range. On many of these models, the lock mechanism can be accessed by removing the rear panel of the appliance. Some models such as built-in ovens or drop-in/slide-in ranges, may have the mechanism mounted towards the front, under the top.
sc-lock-gelocksolenoid.anim.gifFailure of a solenoid style lock is most often caused by a bad solenoid. Once the lock is located, the solenoid coil can be checked for continuity. Some latch assemblies also have micro switches in the power supply that will need to be checked for faults too.
Be certain to unplug or remove power from the range before undertaking any repairs yourself and follow all standard safety precautions.
usually if you are unable to open it after all these tests then you would resort to manually opening the door by getting a piece of wire and slip it where the latch mechanism is and prying to the left this is a last means resort so try these other ways and get back to me with any further questions that you may have and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation Thanks again

I have a Frigidaire Gallery Oven Professional Series, I don't have the model number. In trying to self clean my oven, I accidentally pressed something that engaged the oven door lock. Now I can't close...


If your oven door has gotten bent or warped (maybe you rested something heavy on it…), you need to remove the door, disassemble it, and straighten it. You can lift most oven doors off of their hinges by opening the door several inches to its first "stop," and lifting the entire door straight up.

If the hinges have become worn, damaged, or bent, you probably need to replace them. I recommend replacing both hinges at the same time, to prevent uneven wear of the undamaged hinge.

I accidently pressed self clean instead of boil on my oven


Hi

The oven door lock needs approximately 1 hour to cool down before the oven door can be opened after a self cleaning cycle has finished. If the lock does not open after the oven has cooled down, you can try....1) Unplugging the range or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Plug the range back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and try moving the door lock lever or opening the door. 2) Set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for 15 minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever or opening the door.
Most ranges today use 3 different types of door locks...one is a solenoid controlled lock ( you hear a loud buzz noise when setting or unlocking the lock and has a arm that you must move to set the lock )...another is a heat sensitive lock ( has a arm that you must move to lock and un-lock, makes no noises and has a spring that slowly moves to lock the door will the oven is heating up )...Some locks are motorized ( no handle to move, the motor locks the door by it's self when you set the range for self clean )... If the motorized and heat sensitive locks fails to open after the self clean cycle, you must access the lock and move it yourself to open the door. On the free standing ranges, most times you must lift the cook top to access the lock mechanism. On built in ovens, the oven must be pulled out to remove the top access panel to get at the lock mechanism. Some build in ovens can have the control console removed to access the lock system. On the heat sensitive style of lock, there are no electrical parts to operate the lock, usually you will need to replace the lock. On the motorized style of lock, you will have to use a ohm/volt meter to test why the motor will not work. On the solenoid style of lock, the solenoid is often mounted on the back of the range and can be accessed by removing the rear panel, some may be mounted at the front, such as in a built in oven. The failure of the solenoid style of lock is normally caused by a bad lock solenoid. In order to get your door open, you must operate the door latch mechanism manually. Unplug or remove power from the range. Take the rear cover off the range. Locate the door latch assembly and operate it manually and open your door. Then check continuity of the solenoid. Some of the latch assemblies have micro switches to supply power also. You may need to check them. You should be able to get the door open and use your range until you can get a tech to repair if you can not repair yourself.
There may be a door activated* switch on the front face of the oven. In this case you may need to manually press that door switch with your finger while at the same time canceling the clean cycle to get the latch to retract so the door can close fully again.
*On -some- Frigidaire built ranges, the switch is located behind the right hand side panel and activated by the right hand door hinge. On this model, the side panel may need to be removed to access a malfunctioning door switch.

    4. Press the Clean pad, wait 10 seconds.
    5. When the cycle initiates, press the clear/off or cancel pad immediately to cancel it.
    6. Wait 10 seconds for the display to clear.
    7. The door should unlock and there should not be a need for service.
