Question about Frigidaire 30" Self-Cleaning Freestanding Electric Range - White-on-White
I startred a self-cleaning cycle on a frigidaire stove but I pulled on the oven door accidently before it locked shut and now it won't shut because the lock is stuck closed. I get a flashing lock light and a "dr" code on the panel when I try to set self-cleaning cycle again.
Push in on the oven light switch and hit clean then cancel you have to hold the oven light switch thats what tells the eoc the door is closed if this dont work reply to me

Wow! Thanks so much tech17 for your help. For some reason I wasn't sure what you meant by oven light switch? Thinking it was the oven switch on top of the stove! Thank you again for your help ! Really ~~ I 've been flat broke and calling on Sears for 65. an hour hasn't been an option so have been without the oven for about a week now. Magically your words helped and the door now closes as well as the oven works once again ! Yay ! 100 stars go out to you ! Thank you so much !

The light button worked perfectly for this thank you everyone who posted solutions for not only this situation but any questions people have. It's very helpful especially when you can't afford to get it looked at let alone replaced. Thank you. God bless

I pushed the clean button on my kenmore oven, the door wasn't closed and the lock came out, not I can not close the oven nor get the lock light to stop flashing. What can I do?

I am having the same problem except I did not pull on the door too early.
It's just now that the cleaning is done.
The door will not open and the lock light is still blinking.
Can't get the oven door open.
Must be that the door is smarter than the operator huh?

This helped me. I didn't know where my light switch on the stove was. Until I read the part about on the left and I started looking on the left, in the inside then when I found it. It worked. I'm so happy it's fixed :-)

Just wanted to say THANKS to Tech 17, I turned on the cleaning and forgot to shut the door first and it locked and I could not shut the door. I did what you said I pushed the oven light to turn off and held it for about 10 seconds and the lock let go and now I can shut my oven. Thanks I was very frustrated and calling the help line did nothing.

Thank you tech17. It worked! My husband repeated your instructions just a couple of times and bingo - it unlocked. Thank you very much!

Well i tryed the oven light switch solution, and it didnt work. I attepmted the brute force solution and that didnt work either, but as i was on the verge of breaking the lock off i noticed 2 screws on both sides of the lock. I took a phillips head screw driver and turn the screws a bits to adjust the lock and it worked... the oven made a sound for less then a min. and the flashing lock button turned off, and everything went back 2 normal.
