Question about Bosch HES 252/ HES 256 Electric Kitchen Range

Open Question

Oven door remained locked after self clean

Self cleaning was activated in the middle of the night by roaches which have enjoyed crawling across the board on the top of the range - where the display is.

By 3:00pm in the afternoon I heard something pop or crack so I turned off the range at the circuit breaker.

Even after the range cooled down it remained locked for days.

Since then I have taken the range apart and cleaned it fairly thoroughly.

The display on the control panel reads error 43 - and the little "lock" icon displays.

I took off the range top and systematically removed at least five of the eight or so leads to the motor that latches the oven door. The "lock" icon went away. Then I turned on the oven and it would start heating. However, the second the oven sensed it was heating - when the temperature would logically display 110 vs the starting temperature of 100 degrees - the error 43 message would return and the oven shut down - stopped heating.

Even though I kept removing wires from the latch motor the oven would only start to heat for a few seconds and then stops.

The question is which board controls the sensing? and do I need to replace it?

SOURCE: Error when self-cleaning - oven locked

Hello,

Here is the error code and things to check on your oven.
Error Code: F41 Cause: Upper (or single) oven motorized latch will not lock; defective or jammed upper (or single) oven door or latch switches; Defective latch motor or its wiring. Corrective Action: 1. Check P24 connector on the power board. 2. Ensure door latch switches are operating properly. 3. Check that neither latch switch nor common wires are
pinched to the appliance chassis. 4. Check that the solder joints in header P24 on the power board are not broken. 5. Check P10 connector and check if latch motor wire is
pinched to the appliance chassis.

    Oven door locked.


    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.

    Door locked after cancelling self clean option


    Open the door. In the upper left corner, press and hold the door switch (the one that controls the inside light). Start a self clean cycle and wait for lock motor to engage. When the lock stops moving it should be in the unlocked position. Press cancel to stop the self clean.

    If you need more assistance let me know.
    Good luck!

    Oven Door Locked


    the oven door does lock during self clean, otherwise it will not work. however, the door is supposed to unlock after the oven has cooled. if it is still locked, turn the oven to self clean and wait about a minute and then hit cancel and see if the door unlocks. if not, there may be a probelm with the door lock mechanism.

    Self-cleaning gas oven


    Door lock motor has probably failed.....Self clean on many
    ovens can be a self destruct mode. Door latch motors, sensor
    probes and even the electronic controls can be destroyed by
    this operation. On many freestanding stoves the lock motor is located in the right rear (looking from the front) with a long rod connected to the lock. remove the motor and unhook the rod from the motor cam. Sometimes bending a coat hangar into a hook and sliding from the right side into the lock you can unlock the door.

    Self cleaning oven directions


    Press the self-clean button.  The panel becomes blank(---), then press the up arrow( ^ ).  The panel will appear 3:00 (indication for the duration of self-cleaning). The oven will lock on its own and start the self-cleaning.  Good luck, ya'll!
