Question about Whirlpool RBS275PR Electric Single Oven

Oven malfunction Earlier today I completed cleaning my oven in the self-cleaning mode, but now the door on the oven refuses to open. Oven has completely cooled by now. The screen on the front reads "E 1 F-5," which doesn't help me a bit. I have misplaced the instruction manual, so can't go there to troubleshoot. Can you help me? Thank you.

Re: Oven malfunction

I dont know how old yours is but there was a recall on whirlpool wall ovens due to the dor not closing enough and when in the clean cycle too much hot air was getting into the control panel and causing a thermal fuse to blow causing the oven to not operate. There is also a non resetable fuse in the back that will cause no operation of the oven. So if you did not have the shim kit installed along with a new seal you should call whirlpool and have your model and serial number off the unit to give them and the will tell you if yours needs the updated fix. If it needs it the repair should be of no cost to you.

Used self cleaning process on my oven yesterday and today the oven will not turn on, we keep getting message to unlock the oven door even though it is. What can we do?

The oven gets extremely hot during the self-cleaning mode... the door switch might have got stuck in locked position, or broken in locked position (to be replaced), let's hope it's just stuck...which you'll need to work the mechanical lock-unlock latching back and forth to hopefully unstick....and if that doesn't work just re-run self-cleaning process but this time let the oven cool completely before unlocking the door. Hope this helps.

Hi lost the manual..need to start self cleaning


An electric oven is a great oven choice because of the advanced self-cleaning feature often available on certain models. A self-cleaning oven uses high temperatures to clean crusty baking spills and splatters and free its owner from having to use harsh chemicals to clean his oven. The following 4 steps lay out how a self-cleaning oven works.

Step 1 - Setting the Self Cleaning Mode
Depending on the style and brand of oven you own, you start the self-cleaning cycle by setting the oven's operating dial to "Clean," a function that can be as simple as setting a timer knob or pushing one or two buttons.

Step 2 - Cleaning Cycle
Once you have set the self-cleaning cycle, the oven coils-both lower and upper--will begin to heat. These self-cleaning ovens are protected from high oven temperatures damage by heavy insulation installed in their walls and door during the manufacturing process.

Step 3 - Automatic Door Lock
When the oven reaches a pre-determined temperature, the lock on the oven door engages, preventing anyone from opening the door until the oven temperature has cooled.

Step 4 - Removing Residual Ashes
Once the cleaning process is completed, including cooling, you can then remove the residual ash by wiping the bottom oven surface with a damp cloth or sponge.

Hope this helpout

I did a self-clean session and the oven remained locked way after it completed the cleaning. The error message on the backsplash reads E1- F5-. I am not able to open the oven. What's wrong?

I hit the cleaning button instead of the broiler and the oven lock went in mode so now it thinks it is cleaning but I can't close it and it won't shut off the cleaning mode. What can I do?

Oven door locked

First check to see if you activated the "child lock-out". See your manual to deactivate.

You could also try unplugging the unit, or trip the circuit breaker in your home which supplies power to the oven. Wait 5 minutes and turn power back on. This will reset the controls.

Good luck!

Self-Clean gets too hot on JTP56 double-oven

Your husband is correct, kind of. You should not try self clean again until you get the oven repaired. You have a temp sensor going out. I doubt that the oven actually got too hot, most likely the resistor in the sensor is failing as it heats up and giving a false temp reading.Since the lower oven was operating at the time, it is probably the sensor in the lower oven. Don't use it for baking until you get it repaired. It will go out completely and shut down both ovens. You should be able to get a new sensor for around $30 and they are not hard to replace.

The oven won't set your house on fire during clean mode if the cabinets were built with the correct air space and dimensions, but they do get very hot, about 800 degrees F. Most ovens give no trouble during the clean cycle, but if there is any weak components in the electronics system it will show up then. It will give you less trouble over time if you don't use the self clean mode and just manually clean it.

Oven door open

Turn the operating mode dial to self-clean, then manually hold in for about 20 seconds the light pin on the oven rim. The lock will eventually open after 20 or so seconds. Turn off the operating dial and the door will close.
