I had the situation where the oven thinks the door is locked but it was not locked. Setting and holding clear eventually gave a f9 error.
I solved this by turning the circuit breaker off and taping over the oven light switch ( so it thinks it really is locked ) and turning on the breaker. The oven unlocked and appears fine now.

Hi, 

The "F9" error code means the EOC (electronic oven control) has found the lock motor switches to be out of sequence or shorted.

Test switches and if there is nothing wrong then replace the EOC.

R.K.

F9 error


the F9 error code means that you have a problem with the door latch assembly in your range. The specific technical information on this failure in your model of Frigidaire range is shown in the image below. If you can clear the F9 by using the troubleshooting steps shown below then your range may resume normal operations. If the CLEAR key does not eliminate the F9 then you will need to try unplugging the range for 30 seconds. If the F9 returns when you plug the range back in, then you will need to replace the door latch. Here is that part to order.

To continue to troubleshoot this problem yourself, then you will need to unplug the range and check the wiring between the door latch assembly and the electronic oven control board. Remove the back panels to access these components. NOTE: Internal metal edges and the sides of the back panels can be sharp.

Frigidaire Rang cfef357cb2 error code F9


Hello Youngmi Park - Typically error code F9 indicates that the range has experienced maximum oven door unlock attempts, open time, or lock attempts exceeded. Try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and this will usually clear most false error codes. If it proves to be ineffective, the range may possibly have an issue with the motor door latch, lock motor assembly, door light switch, or EOC. Contact a professional to move forward accurately for a properly diagnose.

I'm getting an F9 error, how do i reset it. I was trying to clean the oven and i mistakenly opened the door. It started beeping and gave me an F9 error


The F9 code indicates there is a problem with the door lock.

Try disconnecting the power to the range for 10 seconds and reconnecting. Open the oven door and hold the door switch plunger in while you try these things. Put the control into clean for 5 minutes then cancel clean. You must hold the door switch plunger in for the 5 minutes.

Try canceling the clean cycle without putting the control into clean.

How do I clear error beeping (F9) on my Amana gas range


try to hold in on the oven light switch plunger that the door would hit if it was closed properly. what you probably did was to pull the door open while it was trying to lock. once you hold the plunger in, then hit the clean cycle again and then push to cancel button to get the door latch to unlock the door. it may take a minute or two but that should clear up the error code and let you use the oven again.
next time if you push the clean by mistake, just let it go and then when it says "locked" just push the cancel button. it will unlock and be ready to use.

HI,
your model number confirms that your range was manufactured by WCI (Frigidaire). although this doesn't help you now, it may help if parts are needed.

now, there is an indepth guide online to fixing this common problem and I would like you to go through it and see if it helps you solve your problem.

Frigidaire---oven door locks.


On my Frigidaire electric range with flat screen front controls, when the "Clean" control was accidentally pushed and the door locked, I could not unlock the door by cutting power, by running the clean mode for 30 seconds then pushing "Clear", or by hitting any button. What opened the door was holding down the "Clear" button for 30 seconds until the range started beeping and code "F11" read on the led. This worked. Good luck with yours.
