How do I Fix a Locked Frigidaire Gallery Oven?

Automatic oven door locks are a wonderful safety feature, particularly for the parents of small children. But unless you know how to disable this feature once engaged, it can also be a real problem. Fortunately, unlocking your Frigidaire gallery oven is very simple once you know the trick.

There are several model variations of Frigidaire Gallery ovens, but each can be unlocked the same way.

Step 1

Locate the oven lockout pad. The pad is located to the lower left of the clock and display screen. It is labeled with a padlock icon.

Step 2

Press and hold the oven lockout pad. You will need to hold the pad down for 3 seconds. A beep will then sound, and the display screen will read "door opn."

Step 3

Wait. The word "door" and the padlock icon will flash for a few seconds while the door unlocks. You can now open the door and use the oven.
