Re: Lock won't disengage
Try putting it into CLEAN MODE and wait about 3 minutes.... then cancel the clean mode. Sometimes this will release the relay if its stuck.
If that doesn't work, you have a problem with the latch relay and you need service on the unit. You can try and remove the latch assembly yourself, but it can be tricky, and you may create more problems than you fix.

I understand you are having trouble putting the door back on your Frigidaire wall oven. Without knowing exactly how you removed the door I cannot say with certainty how to reattach the door. However, when removing the door did you pull up the lock located on both hinge supports and engage it in the hinge lever hooks? You might have had to apply a little downward pressure on the door to pull the locks fully over the hinge lever hooks. Then grab the door by the sides and pull the bottom of the door up and toward you to disengage the hinge supports. If so, then to reattached the door grab the door by the sides; place the hinge supports in the hinge slots. Open the door to the fully opened position. Disengage the lock from the hinge lever hooks on both sides. Make sure the hinge supports are fully engaged before unlocking the hinge levers. Then close the oven door. There are instructions with images to remove and replace the oven door in the owner's manual. I hope this information proves helpful for you.
is the light oven on??? can you see the switch/button that the door would hit against to turn light off?? if so depress button so the lifht goes off, and start a clean cycle.This should make the lock mechanism engage fully. then cancel cycle and should fully disengage lock/latch (you need to depress light switch to trick unit into thinkin the door is closed)
Hello Steven Krenz - Was the unit in self-clean mode? Try pressing and holding the "Clear/Off" button to stop any operation of the EOC. Do this at the same time while pushing and hold the light switch to the left of the door lock. Usually this will trick the oven into unlocking the door. If it is ineffective, try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and redo the steps. If door continues to maintain locked while open, the unit may possibly have a faulty door latch or a communication problem with the EOC. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.
lock assembly is bad and should be replaced, you can try to move it but that
won't help and will have to be replaced to solve this issue. Hope this
helps...please post back for further assistance.
throwing the electrical breaker off and then on to see if it will
reset. If not you could put it through another cycle to see if its a
jammed armature. However either the door lock motor armature is jammed
or the motor is the problem or the solid state did not recognize the
cycle was over. If you open the breakers and remove the covers to
access the mounting screws you can work the unit out of the wall. Be
sure to place some heavy towel or card board on the ground to keep from
damaging the floor. Watch placement of your hands and depending on your fitness level you may need a hand pulling and replacing the unit.
Test the electrical supply to ensure that its not energized. Then try
disengaging the lock armature. IF YOU OPT TO REMOVE THE LOCK THEN THE
UNIT SHOULD NOT BE USED IN THE CLEANING CYCLE, EVEN THOUGH THE UNIT
SHOULD NOT FUNCTION WITH THE LOCK DISENGAGED, YOU NEVER KNOW ABOUT
ELECTRONICS AND IF IT RAN IN THE CLEANING CYCLE SOMEONE COULD OPEN IT
AND GET BADLY BURNED. SO DON'T DO IT. You should be able to order the
parts needed on line at this website. searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action?intcmp=xsite_Sears
most of the time a simple fix....
you have to trick the door lock mech into cycling through the cleaning process (takes about 20 seconds)
PrintRange - “LOCKED DOOR” flashes in the display
If “LOCKED DOOR” is flashing in the display of your range or oven, and the self-clean cycle has not been selected, follow the steps below to reset your control:
With the door open, locate the door jamb switch on the face of the oven. It will look like a small black post or dowel.
Push it in until the oven cavity light goes off, indicating that the oven believes the door is closed.
While you hold the door jamb switch in this position, complete the following steps.
Press the Clean pad, wait 10 seconds.
When the cycle initiates, press the clear/off or cancel pad immediately to cancel it.
Wait 10 seconds for the display to clear.
The door should unlock and there should not be a need for service.
Press the Clean pad.
Close the door.
Slide the latch to lock the door.
Hit the cancel button immediately.
Unlock the door.
If the above does not correct the situation, a service technician will need to check your cooking product. To obtain in or out of warranty repair on Major Appliances, you may call 1-800-GE-CARES (800-432-2737) or schedule service online.
