I've had a similar problem - door is locked. If the door is open - locate the light switch and hold it in for a few seconds. Sometimes it makes a noise and resets the lock. Otherwise, push the Clean button and the Cancel button on front of oven simultaneously and hold for about 30 seconds. The ?locked? light should disappear. If it is working, you?ll hear a mechanical hum as it resets.

Frigidaire stove door is locked to be cleaned but the door is ajar and the cleaning is not happening either. Should I just wait for three hours to end and then it will unlock. Or, do I need to do something to get it unlocked.
Thank you, Robin

My door remained locked for several hours after the Oven Cleaning cycle was complete. As mentioned by RMclellans solution,I pushed in on the right side of the door for 20 seconds and it unlocked. Seems the door switch is slightly out of adjustment. Thanks RMclellan!

Stuck in lock after self clean maybe? the lock assembly is in the back. you can open up the back to get to it and get the unit open.

SOURCE: I did not follow directions on self-cleaning and now stove is loc

Since the door is open and the lock is engaged, you will need to hold the "door closed" switch in located in the top left door opening. Push and hold the switch in, push the clean button, set the time at 3:00 hours, keep holding the switch in for 20 seconds, then push cancel button. The motorized locking mechanism should disengage. Then, you can release the switch. Hope this helps.

Power surge made my Frigidaire stove show a F9 code


F9 is a door lock error. Sometimes when the power surges the door locks then unlocks. It is possible your door lock could actually be broken, however many times when the EOC fails, it will show an F9 when it should show F1. I would guess that your EOC (main computer board) is fried. Try unplugging it for 24 hours then press the door lock button once you plug it back in. If there is no error code when you plug it in but the error code comes back when you lock the door, you probably have a problem with the lock.

I have an older frigidaire self cleaning stove and i cannot get it to unlock for some reason it is stuck on lock mode the knob is wore out so it is a little hard to see where i need to get it


have you tried to unplug the stove and see if when you plug it back in it will allow you to unlock the door? you may have a door lock solenoid burnt out on it as well, in which case you will need to replace the door lock mechanism.

My 1992 Frigidaire Elite stove has locked itself, how do unlock it?


1-turn oven control to lock
2-push in and turn the stop dial knob to set a cleaning time of aprox. 1 hour
3-push the start dial knob in . this will make the locking mechanism to operate (wait 15 seconds)
4- turn the stop knob back to the"0" setting on the cleaning dial. the knob will pop out waight 15 seconds to allow the mechanism to unlatch the door
5-open the door
6 push the stop dial in to return it to the manual position
7- turn the oven control knob to off
8- close door.
basically your just repeating a cleaning cycle to reset the lock mechanism
