    The oven has been cleaned and cycle finished. I opened the door but the hook remains in locked position so I can't shut the door, the fan is blowing and the light is on. The hook is jamed. I would like to be able to shut the door, the fan off and light. Suggestion?

    Once I can turn everything off I can check the hinge and turn on broil right now everything is locked but door open.

Hi,

Probably it has been locked for a cleaning cycle.
If the cycle has not commenced, you should be able to unlock it with the lever that locks it.One or both of the hinges could be bad.There is a way you can check this.First put the door in the broil position and then liftand remove the oven door.Then carefully with a pair of pliers grab the hingeand move it forward towards the range body.In most ranges the hinge should actually be able to rest up against the body of the range itself.Do this with both hinges and see if they rest up againstthe range. If one of them doesn’t then it will need replaced.

post a comment for further assistance.

Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

    Stop the oven and remove the oven from wire from current connection.Take apart the body of the oven,Now you can see the spring that will loaded on the side.You have to release the lock.Please check for shortage in wire connection to the board too.

Is the oven self cleaning and if so how does it work?


if its self cleanin it will say right on it "self cleaning"

self cleaning ovens do exactly that they clean themselves no harsh chemicals (oven cleaner foam) are needed to dissolve the baked on cooking goo that builds up inside ovens , although if one uses a foil liner in bottom then one might never need to self clean it , but some models cant use liners due to convection fans air flow getting in the way ,
self cleaning ovens have the ability to get very hot (500 degrees plus) no one should ever open a oven in cleaning cycle as this hi temp can spontaneously combust to ashes your hair/clothing never the less burn the hand that opened it severely(most lock the door for safety) all that needs done after cycle, is ashes need wiped out with damp towel next day after cleaning cycle is done and oven cooled off completely , im waiting on the day they make one that sweeps its self out into the dust bin ,(not yet )

Those units will not unlock until the interior temperature goes down to a safe level. Self cleaning cycles approach 900 degree F and reduce anything inside to ash. Wait a few hours for oven to cool down and ........

How do i fix the light socket to my Frigidaire Gallery 30" Self-Cleaning Freestanding Gas Convection Range


Hi michell51238 - From what you are describing it sounds like the range may possibly have a faulty light switch or wiring failure that only a professional can repair. I personally recommend consulting a certified technician for a proper diagnosis and to move forward accurately.

Locked oven door


Try unplugging the oven for about 30-45 minutes. Plug it back in and see if the door will open. If not, you have a bad latch, interlock microswitch or control board.
