Question about Ovens

1 Answer

I have a kenmore gas oven that my son locked the door on so I had to go thru the self cleaning feature and let it clean, I followed all the directions in the manual, it was in cleaning for 4 hours and 30 min and the clean light was flashing so I turned the knob to the off position and opened the door just like the manual said and when I turn the oven on to set a temp the clean light comes on and flashes and the oven won't come on. What can I do?

The blinking could be an indication of a door lock mechanism failure or a door lock switch failure. Some models will blink the clean light until the door lock switch is energized or de-energized. You could try to start a self cleaning cycle and the press Clear/Cancel and wait to see if the self clean light quits flashing.
But if the door lock mechanism and door lock switch both checked ok then the spark igniter in the gas oven is got loose or shorted so the oven is not coming On.This igniter went short because the clean cycle took longer time then actual time.Get the igniter checked and replaced.It will show 120 volts with meter.
Thanks.

How do you keep the door locked so you can use t self cleaning feature


Good Morning Friend,

I understand you want to know how to keep the door locked on your Frigidaire oven, model# FEB24S2AS, so you can use the self-clean feature. The "Door Locked" light will flash until the door locks when the self-clean cycle is in use. It glows constantly after the door locks. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Just use some easy off and do not use the self clean feature. Clean it the old fashioned way. Self clean ruins expensive electronics.

Oven door will not unlock


Hello,, Some times this will happen after a self clean cycle if the timer did not finish the entire clean. Try to set the clock to start the self clean again then simply end the self clean. This should unlock the door. If the door remains locked. You may check the oven for an error code, or the door latch itself may need to be replaced. One other possible would be to turn off the power to the oven and try to let the oven control reset. leave the power off for about 15 minutes then turn the power back on. That will sometime work aswell. Good luck and feel free to call me if you need more help.

When baking my oven door is not locked is it supposed to be?and if so how do we lock it.


The locking of the oven door is a safety feature used only during automatic self cleaning cycle, this is because temperatures during the self clean cycle can reach upwards of 600+ degrees creating a dangerous situation if the door was opened, it will remain locked after the self cleaning cycle is complete until the oven interior temperature is below 100 degrees. So no the door is not normally locked during the bake cycle. Good luck !

This is a Door lock malfunction. you will need to replace the door lock mechanism. it is faulty.

Test the door lock mech for its operational value to be sure.if the door mech test is good, replace the control(ERC/Clock)

Self cleaning oven directions


Press the self-clean button.  The panel becomes blank(---), then press the up arrow( ^ ).  The panel will appear 3:00 (indication for the duration of self-cleaning). The oven will lock on its own and start the self-cleaning.  Good luck, ya'll!
