SOURCE: Whirlpool Gold ceramic cooktop removal.

the safest way for a home owner to do this is turn the main breaker off to the house that is the safest way. Then poll the cover plate off the box in th wall with the two screws. not the screws on the round conduit. Then pull out the wire nuts that hold the wires together and un screw them to separate wires I would label them so you know what ones went together. After top is in just reverse the proses above.

Hi

The oven door lock needs approximately 1 hour to cool down before the oven door can be opened after a self cleaning cycle has finished. If the lock does not open after the oven has cooled down, you can try....1) Unplugging the range or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Plug the range back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and try moving the door lock lever or opening the door. 2) Set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for 15 minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever or opening the door.

Most ranges today use 3 different types of door locks...one is a solenoid controlled lock ( you hear a loud buzz noise when setting or unlocking the lock and has a arm that you must move to set the lock )...another is a heat sensitive lock ( has a arm that you must move to lock and un-lock, makes no noises and has a spring that slowly moves to lock the door will the oven is heating up )...Some locks are motorized ( no handle to move, the motor locks the door by it's self when you set the range for self clean )... If the motorized and heat sensitive locks fails to open after the self clean cycle, you must access the lock and move it yourself to open the door. On the free standing ranges, most times you must lift the cook top to access the lock mechanism. On built in ovens, the oven must be pulled out to remove the top access panel to get at the lock mechanism. Some build in ovens can have the control console removed to access the lock system. On the heat sensitive style of lock, there are no electrical parts to operate the lock, usually you will need to replace the lock. On the motorized style of lock, you will have to use a ohm/volt meter to test why the motor will not work. On the solenoid style of lock, the solenoid is often mounted on the back of the range and can be accessed by removing the rear panel, some may be mounted at the front, such as in a built in oven. The failure of the solenoid style of lock is normally caused by a bad lock solenoid. In order to get your door open, you must operate the door latch mechanism manually. Unplug or remove power from the range. Take the rear cover off the range. Locate the door latch assembly and operate it manually and open your door. Then check continuity of the solenoid. Some of the latch assemblies have micro switches to supply power also. You may need to check them. You should be able to get the door open and use your range until you can get a tech to repair if you can not repair yourself.

If you've interrupted the clean cycle or have accidentally set the clean cycle with the oven door open, the latch may have engaged and now the door can't be closed because it will hit the latch. There may be a door activated* switch on the front face of the oven. In this case you may need to manually press that door switch with your finger while at the same time canceling the clean cycle to get the latch to retract so the door can close fully again.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Replaced element on frigidaire oven and oven still not working


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand you've recently replaced the elements on your Frigidaire oven and that it is still not working. May I have your model number please? The serial tag, which lists your model number, is normally located in the storage drawer, on the right side if you have a range. If you own a wall-oven please check the front of the oven, on the left side, as you open the door. Also, think about what may have happened prior to this occurrence. For instance, did you notice any strange functions or any other error codes prior to this issue? With this information I can better determine what may be causing the issue at hand. Thank you! - Z

Light in oven does not turn off


There should be a switch in the door that is pressed in when you close the door. Check the switch by pressing it yourself. If it still doesn't work, replace the switch.

Some have a magnet that operates the switch.

Whirlpool self-cleaning feature not available


Because the features mention utilize 220 VAC power, I do not advise you attempt any corrections. Very dangerous; unless you are a trained technician. If the unit is in Warranty, get the Whirlpool folks out to you home ASAP.

Whirlpool Double Oven Range


Recycle the circuit breaker for the oven several times. If you haven't used the oven much the contacts may be corroded. The display is off a 110Vac circuit but the ovens use 220Vac, The circuit breaker should be 2 switches "ganged" together as one. Both should be cycled...
