Thank you for contacting Sears Parts Direct with you question about your Frigidaire Oven. I am so sorry to hear the door lock is stuck. I know how frustrating it must be to have food locked in the oven and you can't get it out. I will be happy to work with you on a solution to this problem.

First I recommend trying to unlock it from the control panel. If your control panel has the word "Lock" on the display screen, press and hold the "Clear/Off" button until you hear a beep and the work "Off" disappears from the display. The word "Lock" will remain lit until the door lock disengages. It can take up to 15 seconds. If that doesn't resolve the issue, there are a couple of other things to try to get the door open. First try disconnecting the electricity to the oven. You can either unplug it, or turn the power off at the breaker. I recommend waiting a couple of minutes. Sometimes it takes that long for a program to reset in the control panel. Then restore the power. If that doesn't release the door, try setting the oven to the clean cycle. Start it and wait 30 seconds. Then cancel the clean.

Normally, if the above procedures do not release the lock, the next step would be to disconnect the power and remove the rear panel of the oven. Then you can see the lock motor with a rod going up to the door latch mechanism. You would remove the screws holding the lock motor to the assembly and lift it off. Rotate the cam on the lock assembly and it will unlatch the door. But because yours is a built-in oven, I can see where this may be a difficult way to proceed.

You can open the door with a coat hanger. First disconnect the power to the oven. Next bend the hook of the hanger to about 1/4 the size it is now. Squeeze the hanger so that the hook is on one end. Put the coat hanger into the opening above the oven door so that the hook is past the center of the door and the free end of the coat hanger is on the left side of the door. Slide the coat hanger down until it is resting on the hook that locks the door. Pull it to the left until the hook in the coat hanger is caught on the hook that latches the door. Grasp the end of the hanger with your left hand, put your right hand on the door handle. Pull sharply to the left as you push the door handle to the right and pull out at the same time. The latch and the door will give enough to let the door open.

If the lock assembly needs to be replaced it is located on the back of the oven behind the oven liner and insullation. I have included the parts diagram for your oven so you can see where the parts line up.

I have also included the link to order the door lock assembly in case you need to replace it.

You didn't mention if it was the upper or lower oven that is locked. In either case, the door lock assembly is in the same place. If you go to either the upper or lower oven diagram, the oven lock is key number 89. (Shown in the circle just to the left of the wire shield (key 71). It is behind key numbers 83 (the oven liner), and 58b (the oven back insullation). If you decide this is more of a repair than you want to tackle yourself, I have also included the website for our Sears Home Services to schedule a technician.
