Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

This is a common problem. In the upper back of your range you have a small motor which can fail and not rotate to unlock the door.

You need to pull your unit out to get behind it. Unplug your unit. Remove the top back cover and disconnect the motor. The rotate the oven door latch shaft to open the door.

Go into the following website. Input your model number (on the left) and you will get diagrams and part numbers for the repair.

You probably need a door lock mechanism. If you remove the rear panel and locate the lock mechanism (about middle of back) and HELP the gear turn a little it may finish it's unlock cycle. If not just keep turning the gear till the door unlocks.

How do i unlock after self cleaning my kenmore elite electric slide in 30"


Hello,Give it time for the oven to cool if it has just completed the clean cycle. The door is not to unlock if the oven is still too hot. If the oven is cool and the door will not unlock,program and start another clean cycle and after about two minutes press cancel/clear/stop and wait for another minutes to see if the door will unlock.If the door doesn't unlock i recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your range.
Thanks

Started to self-clean, locked the door, etc. Had


Hi.

The appliance door is probably locked in consequence of the self cleaning cycle.

Unplug power cord, and allow the oven cooling down for few hours.

If the is still locked, then the high temperature generated in self cleaning cycle may have damaged the door latch, or the electronic control.

Parts must be tested to discover the fault.

Call Frigidaire at the number listed on the owners manual.

Regards.

Door locked after cancelling self clean option


Open the door. In the upper left corner, press and hold the door switch (the one that controls the inside light). Start a self clean cycle and wait for lock motor to engage. When the lock stops moving it should be in the unlocked position. Press cancel to stop the self clean.

If you need more assistance let me know.
Good luck!

Stopping the self-clean function after starting in erro


You don't have a cancel clean button on it? If not, you may have a reset button in the back of the oven. Otherwise, you may have to let it "run the cycle". Hopefully, you don't have wooden/plastic handles on your frying pans.

Frigidaire self clean electric stove 'f9' message comes on when self cleaning


I had the same problem. All I had to do was clean around the door lock. A small bit of burnt food or something had gotten into the hole around the lock and prevented it from moving all the way into position. Took a tooth pick and 30 seconds of probing to clean it out. Works fine now.
