Reading all the questions and responses - I had the same problem (would press "self clean", it would run for less then a minute then give the error message), so once I saw the code was E5F1 and what it meant (thanks for whoever posted that), I just pressed on the door for the first minute of the cycle, and self-cleaning then worked. Go figure :)

How do I find out what FSE1 or F5E1 means on my oven display


If your oven is by Whirlpool (or from that family), the F5E1 error code indicates that the door lock mechanism is damaged, lock motor isn't working or the sensor can't tell if the door is locked. Did you try to do a self-cleaning cycle on the oven recently? Can you open the oven door? Look at the lock mechanism near the top of the door jamb in the oven and check whether the latch move freely from left to right and back. If the oven door is locked, you open the back panel and try to manually move the lock mechanism to open the door.

Please add a comment with the model of the oven for further assistance. The model number will be on a plaque on the oven frame for most models.

I hope this helps.

What is the solution if my oven beeps?


Hello friend, thank you for your inquiry!

I understand that your door is locked and you have error "F5E1" showing on your range. I would perform a reset on your appliance which can be done by flipping the household circuit breaker off for roughly ten minutes. If that does not correct the issue and you continue to receive the error "F5E1" I would contact a professional to come out and repair your appliance because it could be an issue within your UIB (user interface board) or main control panel. Hopefully this helps. -Matt

Why does the message F5E1 come up on the oven display after I auto-cleaned the oven. The oven is still locked. MOD: RF 265LXTY3, Serial #RW-1117104-X. I have a manual, but it doesn't tell anythi


The F5E1 message means that the door lock mechanism isn't working. This could be a fault at the lock, the mechanism or the wiring.

First press and hold Cancel to clear the error temporarily. Another code should appear. Press Cancel again to clear the second error. (Some models require unplugging the power cord to reset the code.)

To unlock the door, take a metal wire hanger and bend it. Slide it into the door opening and try to get the lock to move. (The lock is in the middle of the opening.) Then try to open the door. Otherwise, see below to see if you can unlock the door from the back of the unit.

You can check some of the parts by taking off the back panel and attempting to move the lock. Similarly check the motor and the cam that controls the lock. It should take a bit of force to move but not a lot.

I hope this helps.

I get an "F5E1" code when I try the have selfclean


4Hello and sorry to hear about your problem.

The F5 E1 error message indicates the latch motor was unable to lock the door. When the self clean cycle is started, the control board will turn on the latch motor which is mounted on the rear of this range. The motor is connected to a cam that transfers the motors motion to a rod that runs under the cooktop. This rod connects to the actual latch mounted behind the oven door. The control board will then monitor a position switch that is actuated by the latch motor cam. As the motor rotates, the latch will engage the door locking it in place just as the cam contacts the switch button. When the switch contacts close, the control turns the latch motor off and starts the cleaning cycle.

I tried to help you, Please help me and rate/vote this response. Thanks and good luck.Hello and sorry to hear about your problem.

My oven code is F5E1 , my oven was in self clean , now the door is locked


F5E1 is door latch assembly. One way that may work to unlock is to turn circuit breaker to stove off for few seconds then turn back on and door lock should activate and unlock. If not you are going to have to replace the door lock assembly.

Oven door is locked and won't open


Sorry to hear the "self clean" Gremlins are at it again. Several things have happened, none good. During the cycle at full power for several hours, a circuit on the control board has failed. Various errors are now keeping functions from occurring normally, although sometimes door switches fail causing similar anomalies. At any rate 'self clean' eventually becomes 'self-destruct'. Boards run 150-300$ . Hope info helps- Thanks-ED

Inglis F5E1 Oven model: IJP85801


The error code F5 E1 is normally associated with problems cleaning
in this case latch not locking. If you did not initiate the cleaning mode then (as u indicate - was baking) then we have a bigger problem. The controller (clock) has malfunctioned. Press any key for about a minute - F2 should appear - then press cancel observe for about a minute - try operation - either back to normal or change control board
