Lower oven lock latch on a Maytag Gemini electric range

I am getting error code F9-4 when I try to start the self cleaning function on my oven. I can see that the latch on the upper oven is functioning properly, but the lower oven latch will not move at all into the lock position. It does not appear that the latch is blocked in any way - it just doesn't seem to even try to move to the lock position when it should. What might the problem be and how might I go about fixing it?

SOURCE: F9-4 when cleaning upper oven

its related to the self clean ltach motr, if you pull hte unit out and drop teh rear panel, approx halh way down on theright side( when behind unit) thers asmall lock mechinisn mavbe 1.5 round, with a connecting rod 2 wires and a witch, well that motor sometimes as it heats looses connection with the switch. the switch is monitoring door positoin so if it loses contact it thinks the door is open and will trigger a code. the entire latch is replacabel (FRont to back comesa sone assy latch motor swittch and rod. 2 wires connect it and 2 screws(by front latch secure it. if youtry to replaceit your self i giveyou the heads up to lie a yard stick on top of latch before removing old latch (thos will keep the insulation in place) andthen when installe ing new latch also use hte ayrd stick ontop to keep insulation inplace!!!!!

Hello Steve
Welcome

You said , We lost the instruction manual...can someone show me how to turn on the self-cleaning function on both the upper and lower ovens? Thanks, Steve O.

The instructions are to long to put in here and will not fit.
so here is what you asked for at the original site.

Whirlpool owns Maytag now so your manual is at this site and the cleaning page starts on page 12.

HI. This indicates that there are serious issues that concern the operational value of the main control abord(ERC/Clock).

This will require you to replace the ERC, asap.

F1-4 is a lower oven runaway clean error F9-3 is a lower oven door latch failure. Must be a bad door latch causing the errors.

Hi szambarano,

My Maytag Gemini oven is displaying an F9-2 error code...I believe this has to do with the upper oven door lock mechanism...anything I can do, or does this require a service call?


F9-2 error code indicates:

  1. Door latch motor failure/jammed. Latch motor switch failure.
  2. Oven control software failure, or component failure(stuck relay).
  3. Wiring problem.
  • Press the clear key.
  • If the Clear key does not eliminate the problem, turn off the power to the range for 30 seconds, then turn the power back on.
  • It is most likely to have a failed or misaligned door lock switch.

Oven will not work.


This is what GE recommends for your oven:

“F—and a number or On models with a door latch, • The latch may have been moved, even if only slightly,
letter” flash in the display if a function error code appears from the locked position. Make sure the latch is moved
during the self-cleaning cycle, to the right as far as it will go.
check the oven door latch.
You have a function error code. • Touch the Clear/Off pad. Allow the oven to cool for
one hour. Put the oven back into operation.
If the function code repeats. • Disconnect all power to the range for 5 minutes
and then reconnect power. If the function error
code repeats, call for service.
