Thread: Blinking lock light, and oven won't turn on

    Blinking lock light, and oven won't turn on

    Model Number: FEF369CGSC
    Brand: Frigidaire
    Age: 6-10 years

    I was using the self cleaning feature and cancelled it as we were leaving the house. When we got back the oven door would not open and the lock light was flashing. I tried pushing different buttons and canceling the lock feature, all to no avail. I removed the back and unlocked the door by releasing the locking rod. I then removed the lock switch which was burnt up. All the wires from the lock switch were covered with electrical tape to prevent any short. At this point I thought that the lock light would go out. It hasn't, and the oven won't work.
    What do I do next?
    PS: since the lock motor is so costly, if it can be fixed without it that's fine.
    Thank you,

    Attached is the wiring diagram.

    I am not sure I understand but it sounds like you just taped up the lock switch and reinstalled it.

    I would check it with a meter. Check it out of the unit and when installed.

    Note that the diagram shows with the door closed and unlocked.

    Thank you for taking the time to reply. What I did was to just disconnect the switch, which did nothing to help.
    What I realised was that there are 2 micro switches that are normally on and normally off, and they got stuck in a position that left the door locked. I put the switches opposite the way they were and low and behold, the blinking light stopped and the oven now functions properly.
