The lock mechanism is acting up. if they fail they can give the board a door locked indication through one of the microswitches but not be locked. you can find the assembly under the cooktop and at the back of the unit with a rod going up to the actual latch you may be able to touble shoot it from the back without taking the top off

How to use the self clean feature for a Frigidaire FES 355 ASF


Hi Anonymous, this is AP!

I understand you are interested in the self-clean process for your Frigidaire slide in range, model FES355ASF. Start by removing all excess spillovers in the oven cavity before starting the self-cleaning cycle. To clean, use hot soapy water and a cloth. Large spillovers can cause heavy smoke or fire when subjected to high temperatures. Clean any soil from the oven frame and the door liner, but avoid cleaning the oven door gasket. These areas heat sufficiently during self-cleaning cycle to burn soil on. Clean with soap and water. Remove the oven racks, broiler pan and insert, all utensils and any foil. These items do not withstand high cleaning temperatures

Make sure the clock shows the correct time of day. Push the CLEAN button "---"will appear on display. Push the up arrow button until "3:00" appears for a 3 hour clean cycle or push the down arrow until "2:00" is displayed for a 2 hour clean cycle. Once the time is selected and released CLn will appear on the display. The door will then automatically lock and the LOCK indicator light will flash. Do not open the door while the indicator is flashing, usually about 15 seconds. The LOCK display will stay until the cleaning cycle is complete or cancelled, and the oven temperature has cooled to a safe temperature.

In the event you need to stop the cycle at any point, simply push the CLEAR OFF button and the door will automatically lock once the oven has cooled, usually about an hour.

Best of luck,

When trying to use either upper or lower oven, panel flashing "Control Locked." Won't work.


Try this:

ToChangeFactorySetDefaultOptions:

1, Controloptionsmay be changedby se-

desiredoptionpad.(SeeOptionsbelow.)

2. Currentoptionwillappearin thedisplay.

3. PresstheAUTOSETpadtochangethe

4. PressCANCELpadtosetthe displayed
optionandexittheprogram

The LOCK is option 4 change the OPTION from 4 to 9.
9 is the factory default settings.

This should work. However.... there is the possibility that the unit had performed a self clean function. If you just completed a self clean cycle it can but up to 1 hour AFTER the cycle before you can open the door or use the oven as the range must cool down and cycle a thermostat before it wil work again.

There is also the possibility that the door lock has not completely retracted. If you can get it to start a self clean cycle.... after 1 minute press cancel and the lock should retract. (I know you said won't do anything) I am hoping that after you reset the options from 4 to 9 that you might be able to do this.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Hi mike_glenn,

Ok, do the following:

1) Press and hold the "Clear/Off" button on the oven until you hear a beep and the word "OFF" disappears from the display. The word "Lock" will remain in the display until the door lock is disengaged, which could take up to 10 to 15 seconds.

-or-

2) Find the main circuit breaker for your oven. Turn it off for fifteen minutes, then flip it back on. This should allow the door latch to open.

I hope this helps

Kind Regards

I fixed the problem simply by pressing the clean button when the oven was warm, not cold.

Oven door won't unlock


I had the same problem on my Kenmore Electric Range. Door would not unlock. Tried pressing "Off" for multiple seconds, but still would not unlock. No error codes. Clock was displaying normally. Finally decided to try running it thru the self cleaning operation to get it to cycle thru locking and unlocking the door. When I started self clean, the door automatically went thru the auto lock and "locked" appeared in the display. I then hit "Off" to clear it and stop the cleaning cycle. The door then unlocked as normal!

LED display not working


Did somebody use the control lock by accident. Here is how to disable it. Hopefully it will work: The Control Lock feature shuts down the control panel pads to avoid unintended use of the oven. The Control Lock feature may be used either when the range is in use or turned off (for example, during cleaning). To lock/unlock control: Before locking, make sure the oven, the timer, and Timed Cooking are off. Press and hold the START pad for 5 seconds until ?CONTROL LOCK? appears on the display. Repeat to unlock, and ?CONTROL LOCK? will disappear from the display. Hope this helps Jason
