The switch inside the door lock mechanism is stuck down making the unit think it is still locked.  the switched is located next to the hook that locks your door.

SOURCE: cant unlock self clean oven door

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. Suggest oven cleaner method.

SOURCE: "door lock" light stays on and oven won't work

Same problems. When I removed the lock operating arm nothing happened. Motor is not operating. I've temporarily kluged it by tying the "unlock" (upper) switch circuit together and disconnecting one side of the power to the "locked" (lower) switch. At least we'll have an oven to use, but I'll have to come back and remove the lock motor assembly to find out what's really wrong.
BTW, if some knows those keyed-in service codes they could be useful.

SOURCE: oven door staying open about 1 inch

your going to have to replace both the door hinges, since they have been over extended past ninety degrees they are not able to close to ninety degrees. that is the only repair, i would also look closely at the inner door panel and make sure that is not "crowned" or bent from the force that might also need replacing

Quick try is to remove the power and see if it re-sets. Do not unplug try it from the fuse box. be careful.

I used the self clean cycle and it has cooled off now getting error F5E1 and won't unlock? Please help. I use my oven almost daily!!


F5-E1 is a door lock error. Depending on the extent of the error, a hard reset may recycle the door lock and allow you to use the oven. Turn off power to the oven for 2 to 5 minutes and then turn the power back on. Give the oven about 2 to 3 minutes to possibly reset.

If the error code returns, there a few different problems you may have.
  1. The door latch mechanism could be broken or shorted
  2. The may be a pinched or shorted wire
  3. The Oven Control Unit may be bad
If further assistance is needed, please submit the brand and model # of your oven

I have a Gaggenau 270-271 wall oven. It is showing F 42 on the screen. what does this mean?


Open circuit in the door contact switch even if the door is locked.
If this happened during a clean cycle sometimes if you start another cycle and then switch the selector off after a few seconds the fault will right itself. If this doesn't work then you probable need a new door lock.
Hope this helps

Door locked after power surge/failure


The question here is how long did you leave the breaker off? Gaggenau ovens have a memory and I always advise turn the oven off for 5 mins before turning the breaker back on. Give that a try. The first thing the oven does when the power is reapplied is go thru a test phase which included locking and unlocking the door. The key symbol will go on and off during this. Sometimes you have to also can run a self clean then cancel it to reset the lock. This works as well.

I am a gaggenau engineer this is usually a fault with the door lock mechanism it can be manually reset eg remove oven and side panel pull back locking arm there is a also a built in test prog in oven clock that will switch door lock back to reset position but these will need to be done by an engineer as oven very heavy.

ring 08705 678910 for service and/or advise

good luck
