THEY NEVER SIT REAL TIGHT,BUT SOME CAN.TAKE A TEMPERATURE (SAY 250)AND SEE IF IT HOLDS.THE IDEA IS TO SEE IF YOUR LOSING HEAT OR JUST BAKE SOMETHING TO SEE IF IT IS UNDERCOOKED.YOU CAN CHANGE THE HINGE IF YOU WANT TO BUT I DONT THINK IT IS NEEDED.

Frigidaire self cleaning oven FEF365BGWC lock stuck and unable to close oven door what do i do


according to your model #, Your door latch is no longer available. the only way you can get your door to close completely, is to have the door latch removed. You won't ever be able to use the cleaning cycle, but you can still cook with it!

Oven door will not remain fully closed


Noiselab is not correct for all cases. As Buzz says, if the springs are strong then the foil fix works and works really well. Refer to attached photo for guidance in conjunction with instructions below. Note my possibly simpler answer at bottom.

I cut some short narrow strips (about 4mm x 20 mm) from a tin can and folded them over into a flattened "U". You can back off the large Phillips head screw on the frame of the oven where the door hinges are inserted and sit the tin over the little plate that is held by these screws and then tighten so that one end of the "U" sits between the oven chassis and the adjustment plate. If it still doesn't quite close add more tin as required. Refer photo for terminology.

Now the simpler solution which I didn't try but which would probably work after I contemplated the problem in retrospect is this. The reason I didn't think of this was that I thought the hinge went into a tube or slot. Later I realised it is just a simple cantilever design which is why the tin foil solution works (ie lifting the middle support of the cantilever produces a corresponding closure of the door). When I inspected the large Phillips head screws to insert the tin foil these were completely loose. Try this first then. Slide the adjustment plate up as high as the tolerance of the Phillips screw allows and then tighten it off hard. This will raise the bottom edge of the plate just as the tin foil method does. If not enough then proceed to the tin foil method.

Frigidaire oven door is open; lock is engaged so door will not close. When recommended procedure of holding oven light switch in and turning on oven clean for 20 sec is preformed, the lock moves in and...


If you can push the latch in manually, press the clear button while the button is pressed in. If that doesn't clear it:

Try disconnecting the power at the breaker to reset any electronics that might be at fault. (Make sure there are no little graphics of a lock that appear on your screen. If there are and you can't find the source, the shut down should help.

There is sometimes a separate switch aside from the light switch the is on the front of the stove front or very close to the latch itself. Considering that the oven clean will work, if there is one, it appears that is working in the in position. Look around the latch and the front of the oven for any other switches. Clean it if you find a separate control so that it can pop back out when the door is open.

I have a Frigidaire smooth top oven. Oven door will not close completely and the oven light is on 24/7. Any suggestions?


Check the gap on the side of the door. Most likely the top will be wider than the bottom. There is a bulliten for several models. Call a service/parts dealer. Give them your model and serial number they can check the bulliten and order the correct hinge kit. The hinges and receivers will need to be replaced. Both must be replaced to correct problem. Not a difficult repair. If no one will hepl you, respond back and I can check the bulliten and get you a part number. And can order and ship you a part if necessary.

Oven door not sealing?


These doors have springs to shut them. If you can figure out how to get to the springs usually you will see that one is either unhooked or unattached at one end. If broken on the end bend another hook into it and add a pice of wire long enough to make up the broken difference.

Hello kmgtsg,
Welcome


You said, The door on my frigidaire stove model # FEF389WJCC locked and we are unable to get it open. We weren't self cleaning the oven so I'm not sure what happened. Any suggestions how to fix it? We did try turning the breaker off and that didn't help.

Did you leave the breaker off for 5 minutes or just flicked it off and on?

It may be a faulty door Latch
The door latch consist of a micro switch and solenoid. Once the door is closed and the latch handle.

But first try to deactivate the door lock


Oven Lockout
To activate the Oven Lockout feature:
1. Press and hold for 3 seconds
2. After 3 seconds a beep will sound, LOC will appear & "DOOR
LOCKED" will flash in the display. Once the oven door is locked
the "DOOR LOCKED" indicator will stop flashing.
To reactivate normal oven operation:
1. Press and hold for 3 seconds. A beep will sound. LOC will
clear. The "DOOR LOCKED" will continue to flash until the oven
door has completely unlocked
2. The oven is again fully operational.

Let me know if these procedures work for you!!
Huuum,
Please remember to leave a rating!

OPEN THE DOOR COMPLETELY. IF IT GOES BEYOND HORIZONTAL, THE HINGES ARE BENT FROM EXCESS DOWNWARD FORCE. THEY WILL HAVE TO BE REPLACED.
CHECK THE DOOR HINGE SPRINGS TO MAKE SURE ONE OF THEM ISN'T BROKEN. IF YOU FIND ONE BROKEN, REPLACE IT.

Oven door will not seal at top.


The same thing with mine. I took apart the door today and found the hinges a little bent. I think it should be ok to bent them the opposite way a little with some mole grips......and then I must remember not to move the stove out for cleaning by the oven door handle again (oops).
Door comes off (unlock hinges and lift up). undo 4 screws on the bottom edge and then two on the inside of the door handle then it comes apart - beware as it's heavy. The hinges themselves come off with two screw each.

Oven door won't unlock


I fixed the automatic oven door lock on my oven. While the door was open, I pushed the button on the upper left hand side a couple of times (the one that senses when the door is closed.) Then I was going to call the repairman when the door closed! I had to run the self clean cycle again to get the lock light to go off, but it worked!
