Question about Ovens

1 Answer

This oven has a motor driven electric door lock located immediately behind the control panel. When I attempted to put it in the clean mode, the 4 hour timer came on as it should, the lock door icon started flashing, but the motor never started nor made a sound, nor will the door lock. Eventually, when the door doesn't lock, the clean mode goes off. I have tried resetting everything several times both on the control panel and shutting off the power to no avail. The motor number is WB26K5030. I am wondering if I should order a new motor or if this might be a control panel problem.

Oven is stuck in lock mode


Hi Lora, this is AP!

Based on the description of the Frigidaire electric range provided it appears the door lock feature has been activated. In order to cancel the Oven Lockout feature, press clear off and hold for 3 seconds. The control will unlock the oven door and resume normal operation.

This door lock feature is activated by pressing clear off and holding for 3 seconds. "Loc" will appear in the display, the "Door Locked" indicator light will flash and the motor driven door lock will begin to close automatically. Allow about 15 seconds for the oven door to lock. Once the oven door is locked, the current time of day will appear in the display. If any control pad is pressed with the oven lockout feature active, "Loc" will appear in the display until the control pad is released.

This information is also located in the owner's manual should you like to view it again, you may retrieve a manual using your model# and the following link http://www.frigidaire.com/Owner-Center/Product-Support-Manuals/.

I hope this information helps to some degree - thanks for your question, and please do not hesitate to reconnect.

Got error code F9 while oven cleaning in process. What does this mean?


An F9 error code on a General Electric (GE) oven indicates that the oven's electronic control system has detected a problem with the automatic door lock.
The automatic door lock mechanism prevents the oven door from being opened when the oven is set for "Clean" mode.

The malfunction may be a jammed door lock mechanism, a pinched or broken wire, a faulty lock switch or a fault in the control board itself.

9 out of 10 times the lock switch has failed.

STEP # 1 - Disconnect power to the oven!!

  • Step 2 Open the oven door. Remove three screws from underneath the oven's control panel. Lift the control panel straight up to disengage the mounting pins on the top corners of the panel, then tip the panel toward you.
  • Step 3 Inspect the door lock mechanism. The mechanism is in the lower left area of the space behind the control panel. Rotate the cam on the door lock mechanism to be certain it moves without binding. Replace the mechanism if its mechanical parts do not function properly.
  • Step 4 Inspect the wires that connect the door lock mechanism to the control panel. Check for pinched or broken wires. Check for wires with frayed insulation2_bing.gif. Repair wires as needed if defects are present.
  • Step 5 Locate the six-pin connector on the door lock motor on the right end of the door lock mechanism.
  • Step 6 Rotate the cam on the door lock mechanism to the unlocked position. Test the resistance between Pin 3 and Pin 1 of the door lock connector with the ohmmeter. The resistance should be 0. Replace Lock Switch 2 of the door lock mechanism if the resistance reads other than 0.
  • Step 7 Rotate the cam on the door lock mechanism to the locked position. Test the resistance between Pin 3 and Pin 2 of the door lock connector with the ohmmeter. The resistance should be 0. Replace Lock Switch 1 of the door lock mechanism if the resistance reads other than 0.

    My frigidaire gas range has a F90 on it when I tried the self cleaning oven feature


    F90 Maximum oven door unlock time exceeded.
    F91 Maximum oven door unlock attempts exceeded.
    F92 Maximum oven door open time exceeded.
    F93 Maximum oven door lock time exceeded.
    F94 Maximum oven door lock attempts exceeded.


    1. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Check the wiring between EOC & Lock Motor Micro Switch.

    2. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Replace the Motor Door Latch assembly if necessary.

    3. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Check for binding of the Latch Cam, Lock Motor Rod & Lock Motor Cam.

    4. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Check to see if Lock Motor Coil is open. If open, replace Lock Motor Assembly.

    5. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Lock Motor continuously runs - if Micro Switch is open, replace Lock Motor Assembly.

    6. (F92, 93 & 94) Check oven door Light Switch - if open, replace Switch.

    7. If all situations above do not solve problem, replace EOC.


    F90 is a door lock code, Try this...
    unplug the range.
    wait 1 minute.
    turn the range back on,
    then while holding in on the oven door.
    start another self clean.
    wait 2 minutes.
    then cancel the self clean.

    do not release the door until the door lock light goes out.

    Flashing locking door light


    Re : Within the electrical enclosure exposed by removing the control panel, Look for a small silver and black device with 2 wires attached to the back.

    That cames from an old thread and is a generic explanation of how it works. Here original reference
    GE Profile Electric.

    There is no electrical cylinder because the solution was referring to a different model and a different problem. In case linked above the door was locked, in your case door is clicking continuously, showing that there is a contact or a faulty door lock motor control.

    If I was doing the repair I would start reading voltages on lock motor motor harness with motor wiring cut, this will tell you if contact is inside lock motor assembly or on control. The test can be done either from control side (easier access) or from lock motor, after disconnecting the harness.
    If the control actuator keeps turning on and off , then replace the box in there, otherwise work on wiring harness and on lock motor.

    This is not an easier repair, and tests with live power in there may be riskyd if you have not enough experience. If you are a beginner just inspect wiring with power off first, then replace control, and if that does not fix the problem replace wiring harness.

    Here parts that must be tested, and relative diagrams:

    LOCK MOTOR WIRE HARNESS (LCK MTR HARN) connects to part 999 on diagram.



    LIMIT SWITCH(LOCK)
    Part 158 on diagram.

    ea2994c.gif

    If problem is not in control or wiring harness, then check if there is a contact inside door lock assembly or on LOCK MOTOR connectors. If two connectors on picture below are making contact, that is the problem:

    ba71f6f.gif

    As a matter of principle , do not forget to leave feedback, or you may end up rewarding the person that copied and pasted a solution for the wrong problem.

    Thanks, and thanks for asking Fixya.

    First press and hold the cancel/off button for 10 seconds.
    If that does not work you have a bad thermal switch due to excessive heat buildup. Possibly a bad fan motor.
    The 2 thermal switches are located on top of the oven behind the control panel.

    GE Double Oven doors locked and circuit not responding


    Hi, well this is a brain tester!! I think you need really to look at this in a simple way. Check to see where the door lock wires come from first? Find where the mains power comes into? then if it goes directly to the main control board then check to see if there is any power getting through the board to the otherside where the wires disapear into the cooker. I would consider checking the control board for any signs of burn damage and then look at the clock unit to as these are normally the main components in the cooker that will stop it from working.
    Good luck,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    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.
