    I just set the oven to self clean, I quickly opened the door to make sure nothing was inside and the locking mechanism locked in place and I can't close the door. The panel shows locked. Is there something to reset? I tried pushing the cancel several times but to no avail. Tom

The oven locks when you either deliberately or accidentally hit the self-clean button. It is protecting you from the smoke and extremely high temperature needed to burn off the food drippings turning it to ash. You can turn off the breaker switch for the oven, when you turn it back on, see if the door opens again. If not, wait until the oven cools as it may have a temp control feature to prevents burns and therefore not allow the door to be unlocked until it is cool again.

Why has both top elements stop working at the same time


Hello kimberlymaso - If you are referring to the bake element, but the broil element works then you would need to just replace the bake element. If both your bake and broil element does not work, then there might be a problem with the wiring communication. However, if the oven does not bake and/or broil but the cook top works; contact a professional to diagnose the EOC (electronic oven control).

If tripping and turning the circuit breaker off for about 10 minutes does not work, contact Frigidaire. Sounds like the control board and/or door switch will need replacing.

Frigidaire self clean electric stove 'f9' message comes on when self cleaning


I had the same problem. All I had to do was clean around the door lock. A small bit of burnt food or something had gotten into the hole around the lock and prevented it from moving all the way into position. Took a tooth pick and 30 seconds of probing to clean it out. Works fine now.
