Q:

How do you use a Frigidaire self-cleaning oven?

A:

To use the self-cleaning function on a Frigidaire self-cleaning oven, remove all of the oven racks except those that are constructed of porcelain. Set the oven control to clean, and select the cleaning time or choose a cleaning level, then select start.

A self-cleaning oven uses a temperature of 900 degrees Fahrenheit during its cleaning cycle to burn away baking spills without the use of chemicals. Some smoke will emit from the oven during the cleaning process. The oven features a mechanical interlock that keeps the oven locked during the cleaning cycle to prevent burns. A normal cleaning cycle takes approximately three hours to finish. The mechanical interlock releases after the oven cools down to 600 degrees Fahrenheit when the cycle is complete.

  • Q:

    How to Cancel the Lock on a Frigidaire Self Cleaning Oven?

    A:

    The Frigidaire self-cleaning oven has a lock to prevent the door from being opened during the cleaning cycle. The oven door can become locked before and after the cleaning cycle. The method to unlock the oven door depends on whether the oven door has been locked in a closed or open position. If the door is locked open, hold the light switch, program the oven's self-cleaning cycle, wait several seconds, cancel the self-cleaning cycle, wait several seconds again, and you are able to close the door. If the door is locked closed, unplug and re-plug the unit, and gently open the oven door. You can also try starting and canceling the self-cleaning cycle.
