Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

Electric range I think I'm a little confused so I will try again. This is trible. I accidentally pushed the clean button on my stove and opened the oven door before I realized it. It is now locked and I cannot get it unlocked. Pushing clear does nothing. It is a fridgedare electric range with a self cleaning oven. The model # is FEF364BWB and the serial # VF50835097. how do I get it to unlock?

Yes, like I said, unplug the range from the wall socket. There should be a circuit breaker that corresponds to that particular socket. Switch that off as well, and wait about 15minutes. After that, please plug the range back into the socket and turn on the circuit breaker. That should reset the device.

If that does not work, you can either try calling the manufacturer, or get a repair guy to come and physically unlock/replace the interlock assembly.

PS, if you have more queries, please reply to this same post, you need not start a new post, or else I may get confused, considering the number of posts I have to handle :) If you reply to this same post, I will have an idea about the issue and you will not have to repeat things for me again :)

Electric stove works, oven turns on briefly then shuts down


Try turning off the power at the switch again and leave it off for a little while, sometimes the microprocessors become confused and need time to re adjust.

I accidentally pushed the lock button on my stove and can't get it to unlock.


Hello,
You should be able to push cancel/off and the door should open. If the oven started the clean cycle it may not open till it has reached a certain low tempature, where the door could be opened without the intense heat of the clean cycle burning you

I hope this has helped you,
Gene

LG Electric Range Oven touchpad buttons not working


The lock and unlock works well for the 4 - 5 button problem. However the "start" button failure is another problem altogether. I had this problem and found that the ribbon connector attaching the membrane switches to the circuit card (PWB) is where the problem lies. The ribbon cables (two of them) are connected by a pressure contact connector mounted on the PWB. This connection method is less than robust. the fix is to pull the ribbon from the connector, clean it carefully with a paper towel and some alcohol, and reconnect it. To remove the cable the connector has a small flange that pops up about .05 inch whn you pull on the connector. Once it pops up gently pull the ribbon cable out of the connector. To replace it just push the ribbon back into the slot on the top of the connector and snap the flange back down. I strongly suspect this connector will get dirty again every couple years as the oven vent fumes are not properly prevented from partially passing over the PWB right where these connectors are mounted.

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.

Locked oven door


Look for a button or sensor which the door would press when closed.
If you find it hold it down for a minute, this should reset the lock
if it doesn't it may do when you let go

Frigidaire---oven door locks.


On my Frigidaire electric range with flat screen front controls, when the "Clean" control was accidentally pushed and the door locked, I could not unlock the door by cutting power, by running the clean mode for 30 seconds then pushing "Clear", or by hitting any button. What opened the door was holding down the "Clear" button for 30 seconds until the range started beeping and code "F11" read on the led. This worked. Good luck with yours.
