SOURCE: self cleaning oven directions

Press the self-clean button.  The panel becomes blank(---), then press the up arrow( ^ ).  The panel will appear 3:00 (indication for the duration of self-cleaning). The oven will lock on its own and start the self-cleaning.  Good luck, ya'll!

SOURCE: Getting error code F10 on Kenmore model 47889603 wall oven

Leaving the breaker off for the time I was at work (about 9 hours) seems to have cleared the problem. May have just been an abberation and not an actual problem with the appliance. Since the first step with most electronics that develop a fault of some type is to power down for a while then power back up to reset the electronics, I decided to see if that would do it and it did. Thanks for having a site to go to for assistance, though!!!! -Mike-

SOURCE: oven door won't unlock after self clean

Try unplugging it. If that does not work, try to use a flat object like a butter knife, to move the latch (between handle, and top of stove.) Other than that... have a handy guy you know come look at it....

Range throws an F5E1 code, cleaned the oven 2 weeks ago. Worked fine. Plugged it back in today to clean oven but it threw the code, door is not locked.this is in a rent house.


Using the 'self clean' function nearly always results in faults. We see it here all the time, burnt out elements, doors that won't open, fires and error codes. Google the manual for it. They are all online

The error is listed in this link. Also look at the video tab

You have to manually open it by hand. Since you did not provide a model number I cannot tell you the correct way to do this. need the mod. number

Frigidaire electri clean selfcleaning feature


It locks automatically. You can download the manual from Frigidaire here (as I just discovered while trying to figure out how to use the self-cleaning feature :) ): http://www.frigidaire.com/support/manuals.asp?NewSearch=New+Search

You don't need to type in the whole model number. For example, if the model number (found in the upper left when you open the oven door) is RSE37BAW*4, you only need to enter RSE37BA.

Good luck!
