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?

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.

SOURCE: range displays error code f9-5

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.

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.

Since we bought our Maytag Gemini 9 years ago, every time I use the oven cleaning function, I get an f9-4 error and cannot clean my oven. Is there anything I can do to bypass this? Its just too expensive...


Oven Cleaner can be used instead of letting the ovens "Self Clean". This error report you are getting could be a couple of things, 1 the oven latching mechanism may have gone on the blink (this is the part that locks the door during the cleaning process to prevent any opening of the door during cleaning) 2 it could be that the oven will not reach the self cleaning temp. any longer (this temp is much higher than the hi broil) Good Luck
