Question about Frigidaire Ovens

1 Answer

Self-cleaning gas oven

I have a Frigidaire self-cleaning gas oven that is 5 - 6 years old. Unfortunately, I've lost the paperwork and do not know the model number. For years I cleaned the oven manually and only used the self-cleaning option for the first time this past weekend. Unfortunately, when the cleaning cycle ended and the oven cooled down the oven door remained locked. The word "Locked" appears in red under the time in the time display window. The "Bake" and "Clean" functions are on the left of this disply and "Cancel" is on the right. Even though we have tried pushing "Cancel" and even repeating the "Clean" cycle the oven door remains locked.

Door lock motor has probably failed.....Self clean on many
ovens can be a self destruct mode. Door latch motors, sensor
probes and even the electronic controls can be destroyed by
this operation. On many freestanding stoves the lock motor is located in the right rear (looking from the front) with a long rod connected to the lock. remove the motor and unhook the rod from the motor cam. Sometimes bending a coat hangar into a hook and sliding from the right side into the lock you can unlock the door.

How to use self-cleaning on 1996 frigidaire electric oven


Thank you for your post, Jewell!
From the information you have provided you would like a manual for your Frigidaire oven. I would be happy to research and see if that information is available. In order to research for any available manuals I would need your model number. You can locate the serial tag (which lists your model number) on the door frame of your oven or on the inside left hand wall. Once I have that information I would be able to better assist you. -Matt

Frigidaire gas oven, 5 years old, oven pre-heat light comes on and stays on, oven gets warm but not up to temp (it was like this for about an hour), also smell gas when oven door is opened. Burners work...


I don't have a solution, but I was wondering if it constantly beeps until you press the start button? I am having the same problem with my oven preheating. Until we can figure out how to stop this we unplug it and shut the gas off when not in use.

I wish I had a solution for you...unfortunately I don't. However, if you know anywhere I might find a thermostat knob for this model I would be eternally grateful. I've been searching for 2 years for my mother. It's the knob with 5 settings (off, bake, broil, time-bake and clean).

Frigidaire oven


I JUST CALLED FRIGIDAIRE AND GOT INSTRUCTIONS FOR SELF CLEANING:

1. TAKE OUT THE RACKS UNLESS YOU DON'T MIND THEM TARNISHING
2. TURN THE "SELECTOR" AND/OR "OVEN" DIALS TO THE LOCK POSITION
3. PRESS THE "COOK TIME" BUTTON
4. SET THE CLOCK TO 2 OR 3 HOURS (I.E., "2:00" OR "3:00"), DEPENDING ON HOW DIRTY THE OVEN IS
5. PRESS "START" BUTTON
6. YOU WILL HEAR THE MOTORIZED LOCK MOVE INTO PLACE; WAIT ABOUT 30 SECONDS, THE DOOR SHOULD BE LOCKED AND CLEANING WILL BEGIN.
7. CLEANING WILL STOP AFTER THE TIME SELECTED (I.E., 2 / 3 HRS) AND THE DOOR SHOULD AUTOMATICALLY UNLOCK
