Frigidaire ranges are dangerous appliances that are not to be treated as toys by children. Although the oven and burner controls are often located on the top of the appliance, well out of the reach of children, it is possible for a child to open the oven door. The door is spring loaded and can slam shut, potentially causing serious injury. To prevent children from opening and closing the oven door, Frigidaire includes a safety feature that allows you to lock the door.
