Frigidaire Range Door Lock Problems

5 posts in this topic

Great Wisened Samuri and master of all Appliantology (and all that is fermented with hops),

So I have a Frigidaire Range model # FEF389WFCF. The other day, cannot be sure what happened since I was not there, the door lock engaged but the door is in the open position and not matter what sequence of buttons I push it does not unlock.

I have done some reading and tried pushing in the door switch and holding down the clean button but it just continues to say lock on the controls.

My next step was going to be to replace the door switch and then perhaps the door lock motor.

I make my petition to thee oh master of appliances, shouldst I proceed on my humble course or must I change direction.

Your Humble Servant.

The Latch Motor is located behind the Range's Rear Wall Shield.

You could apply 120v AC to the Motor to turn it, and test the Switches.

Which terminal should I apply power to? The brown wire? I have already removed the panels and located the switch and the door motor.

Thanks.

Looking at the Wiring Diagram, it looks like the Pink wire and the White wire go to the Motor Connector.

may be the Connector in the upper right corner of this picture

does your range have a control lock? many frigidaires do and they will say LOC on the display, there will be a button to push and hold to release this feature, consult manual if unsure of button
