Did you smell plastic burning when this happened? More than likly you fried the door lock. see if you can see a bubble of melted plastic. If you do try to clean the bubble (remove it)

How do you use the self-cleaning ??? i lost my manual within minutes of getting....


we have a sears kenmore model and this is how we do it. remove everything from stove including the racks, close oven door, slide door lock latch to the right till it locks the door. turn knob to clean. when it is done cleaning it will turn off by itself. on some models the door latch will not slide open when done. just wait for it to cool if this is the case. it should tell on the touch pad on stove the hours that it takes to clean it. good-day !

unplug unit. remove rear cover, see if latch motor has made it to rest position. microswitch may be holding power off to latch. a slight turn may be all you need to reset latch.

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.

Frigidaire oven door is open; lock is engaged so door will not close. When recommended procedure of holding oven light switch in and turning on oven clean for 20 sec is preformed, the lock moves in and...


If you can push the latch in manually, press the clear button while the button is pressed in. If that doesn't clear it:

Try disconnecting the power at the breaker to reset any electronics that might be at fault. (Make sure there are no little graphics of a lock that appear on your screen. If there are and you can't find the source, the shut down should help.

There is sometimes a separate switch aside from the light switch the is on the front of the stove front or very close to the latch itself. Considering that the oven clean will work, if there is one, it appears that is working in the in position. Look around the latch and the front of the oven for any other switches. Clean it if you find a separate control so that it can pop back out when the door is open.

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?

E1 F5 Error on Whirlpool Accubake Oven


The lock latch is located directly in the center upper portion of the door. It is a hook shaped latch that lock by turning downward. This lock gets stuck in this position which causes the e1 f5 error code. Locate the latch through the vent holes in the upper front of the oven door. Insert flat headed srew driver into vent hole and gently push latch up to a horizontal position & simply open door. Once unlocked, push cancel on the control panel.This will clear the error code and resolve the issue.

I fixed the problem simply by pressing the clean button when the oven was warm, not cold.
For some reason not explained in the instruction manual, the oven door safety locked properly and automatically when the oven was warm. I don't know why, but I'll take it!!

My electric oven will not lock the door to have it self clean


The most likely problem is that the motor that drives the locking mechanism is defective.

Frigidaire---oven door locks.


On my Frigidaire electric range with flat screen front controls, when the "Clean" control was accidentally pushed and the door locked, I could not unlock the door by cutting power, by running the clean mode for 30 seconds then pushing "Clear", or by hitting any button. What opened the door was holding down the "Clear" button for 30 seconds until the range started beeping and code "F11" read on the led. This worked. Good luck with yours.
