Maytag MER5870 F9 code and door locked

Performed a self clean which stopped after 2 hours and error F1 appeared and door is locked. After leaving unplugged overnight it now has F9 error code and door is still locked. Opened back panel to unplug touch pad ribbon connector but can not remove without force. Do not want to damage. Does anyone have any advice or pictorial of panel?

SOURCE: F1 Error Code on MayTag range

migs, on a Maytag the F1 indicates there is a problem with the touch-pad or control itself. Usually, it's the touch pad. Try killing the power to the range and remove the touch pad ribbon from the control board. Clean it with an eraser. Power back up and see if the error comes back. If it does, remove the ribbon cable again and power up with-out it attached. If the same error still returns, then I would suspect the control board itself. Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: Maytag Oven MER5770AAA gives F9 code and won't

F9 is a door latch problem.Check the door latch components.It actually means that the machine is not detecting the door closing.There might be some purchase of parts to rectify this problem.

Maytag range model mer6750 - I tried to open the oven door too soon after a self cleaning cycle Now door won't open and fault code F9-2 appeared. What to do? THANK YOU


Try unplugging the oven from the electrical power. May release the lock, which is held in place by a tiny micro switch. If not and while the electric is still off or the oven is unplugged, use a bright light flashlight to look through the slot where the lock is in the oven, not in the door.
You may be able to use a thin blade screwdriver to move the lock to the release position. Check the angle of the lever. A slightly bent lever handle also can cause this type of condition.

If all else fails, remove the access panel on the front of the oven to access the locking device and release it. May have to disconnect the wires to the lock which will allow door to function but not during any self cleaning modes.

F9 Door Lock Warning Check door lock circuit or Replace Clock
F-2 Oven temperature sensed by electronic control Replace the clock/relay board.
Here is the part you need to order.

My oven door will not shut, i have a code of F9 showing


it MAY be your oven door lock is jammed..
I found this information for you:
1
  • Wait at least one hour after the oven has completed a self clean cycle to attempt to open the oven door, as the oven remains locked until the interior temperature has cooled sufficiently.

  • 2

    Press "Cancel" and wait a few minutes if the oven is cool and wait until at least one hour has elapsed since the completion of a self-clean cycle.

  • 3

    Open the oven door and check the door lock switch. Move the switch back and forth with your fingers to return the switch to the original position. Check for dirt or debris that may be causing the switch to stick or lock and clean as necessary.

  • 4

    Contact an authorized service technician if the problem is not resolved, as the door switch may need to be replaced.



  • Perhaps you can get some advice from Maytag

    Call the dealer from whom your appliance was purchased or call Maytag Appliances Sales Company, Maytag Customer Assistance at 1-800-688-9900

    While self cleaning, we experienced a power surge. now the doors will not open and we can not get it to reset. F9-2 is the error message.


    Hi happytrailri,

    The F9-2 error code is a Latch, Unlock Upper. Check for obstruction in door lock mechanism.

    Hope it helps.

    Thank you for using FixYa.

    (Positive feedback will be greatly appreciated.)

    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.

    Model 5770ACW 19401490Z. An hour into self cleaning I heard a beep and a F1 appeared on the screen. Can you tell me what happened and what I need to do to fix the problem. Thank you


    F1 touch pad / ERC test This simple test will help determine whether the ERC (Electronic Range Control or Clock) or the touch pad is defective when F1 error code is present.

    Note: Some models incorporate the touch pad in to the ERC as a single assembly, in which case this test is not necessary. Simply replace the ERC (Clock).

    Warning: If you feel in any way uncomfortable performing this test or making this repair, please contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

    1. Disconnect power to the range (unplug the range power cord or turn the power off to the range at the circuit breaker). It is very important that the power to the range has been disconnected, so please double check before continuing.
    2. Gain access inside the control panel.
    3. Disconnect the touch pad (also called keypad or membrane switch) ribbon from the ERC.
    4. Make sure there are no lose wires, or anything else that may cause a short when power is turned back on. Assemble the control panel back the way it was.
    5. Turn the power back on.
    6. Wait for at least one hour to see if the F1 code comes back (usually accompanied by a beeping sound).
    7. If F1 comes back, replace the ERC. If it does not, replace the touch pad.

    Maytag range fault code F92


    There should be some number after the F 9 Error code. And, it would look like this
    F9-1 Latch lock upper
    F9-2 Latch unlock upper
    F9-3 Latch lock lower
    F9-5 Latch unlock lower
    F9-6 Latch both lower


    This is just to give you an idea. But one thing you can try is UNPLUG THE UNIT AND LEAVE IT LIKE THAT FOR AN HOUR OR TWO, AND THEN PLUG IT BACK IN.
