Door lock is stuck on

I tried to clean an oven I bought recently. It came up with "door" and then F9 indicating that the door was not closed. After various attempts I now realize that the door lock appears to be in the locked position and is preventing the door from closing now (the light stays on). I have cycled power and tried to manually move to lock out of the way in both the powered and unpowered mode to no avail.

Hello,

Check to see if the oven is in a self-cleaning cycle, or has just completed a self-cleaning cycle. If so, the door will unlock automatically once the oven has finished the cleaning cycle and cooled completely, which may take several hours. You cannot unlock the oven before it has cooled.
If your oven door is locked, but the oven is not warm and is not in a cleaning cycle, unlock it by pressing and holding the "Clean/Off" button.
Take care.

    Thanks for the advice. I have since made some calls and I think I am beyond simple solutions. The door lock is stuck out and the door is open. Based on the service persons advice I tried starting a cleaning cycle while holding in the door closed sensor; this makes the lock mechanism do a slow circular dance but never retracts. Sounds like a relay board issue. Thanks for the help, though.

Oven Lock stuck open before start of self-cleaning cycle I get a code F9, a flashing lock light, a continous beep and a dr code on the panel when I try to set self-cleaning cycle again.


Thank you for your inquiry, Lucie!

From what you have described your Frigidaire oven lock is stuck open and you are receiving error codes "F9" and "DR". The "F9" error code stands for runaway temperature (overheating). This could be an issue with your RTD (Resistance Temperature Detector) or the EOC (Electronic Oven Control). I would recommend performing a reset on your oven and you can do that by disconnecting from your oven for ten minutes. The "DR" code means that the door is not closed or the door latch is not recognizing the door is closed. This could be an issue with your door latch or control panel. If the reset does not help correct your issues I would recommend having a professional technician out to perform a proper diagnosis and repair. Best of luck! -Matt

F9 door will not lock to self clean. Is there any way that we could test anything/hold door closed to help clean/take door off oven and re-install?


The "F9" fault code is indicating the control has detected a problem with the Door Latch Motor assembly (key#89) or latch motor circuit. The door latch motor and door latch switches will need to be checked. The door must be closed in order for the door switch to energize. Try pushing inwards on the door and keep tension on it while starting a clean cycle.

I tried to "clean" the oven and only got a F9


The F9 error code indicates a problem with the oven door lock assembly. The door lock assembly will need to be checked and replaced if defective. If the door lock assembly is okay, then the electronic oven control board will need to be replaced.

Try disconnecting the power to the range for 10 seconds and reconnecting. Open the oven door and hold the door switch plunger in while you try these things. Put the control into clean for 5 minutes then cancel clean. You must hold the door switch plunger in for the 5 minutes.

Try canceling the clean cycle without putting the control into clean.

F9 code


I hit the same F9 problem when trying to self-clean, except that the door was locked OPEN.

After much trial and error, I found the following fix: 1. Switch circuit breaker off. 2. Switch circuit breaker on. 3. Press Bake button. 4 Press the small/inside button which indicates that the oven door is closed.

The lock mechanism opened and the oven now works fine.
