1. If door latched:

  1. Disconnect power from unit.
  2. Check wires and connectors from control to door switch, then from door switch to control. If no damage to wires and all connectors okay, proceed to step 3.
  3. Replace door switch.
  4. Re-apply power.
  5. Press and hold any key down for 1 minute to clear F5 failure code from memory. F2 will appear. Press CANCEL and observe for 1 minute to ensure operation is correct.

I have a Whirlpool Gold Accubake System Microwave. I have no power to the microwave. The outlet it is plugged into have power running to it and the circut breaker is good and only runs to the microwave...


Most likely the power supply has to be replaced; but it could be the safety switch too. Do you have any experience or knowledge in using meters and troubleshooting electronics? If not and you want to repair the microwave- send it out to a qualified/ certified microwave repair shop. Or else buy a new one. Best regards ~

Model# 66568601891 (Whirlpool) Error code F5. Can't find solutions in the forums for this code for microwaves but yes for others appliances with different meanings. I unplugged appliance for 24 hrs and...


F5 may be a transient problem (grease, impending failure) involving the door switches or *possibly* a sensor error.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

It should also have the fault / error codes.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

WHEN TRYING TO SELF CLEAN OUR KENMORE ELECTRIC RANGE WE GET THE E1-F5 LIGHT?


The E1 - F5 error code indicates that the oven door lock assembly is not operating. The oven will not begin the self clean cycle unless the oven door is properly locked. This failure is normally caused by a failed door lock assembly. In rare instances, it can be caused by a failed control board or a wiring failure. The normal troubleshooting for this problem is to unplug the range and check the wire harness connections between the control board and the door lock assembly. The first image below shows the access information for the components in this model of range. The second image shows the wiring diagram with the door lock circuit highlighted. If you are able to unplug the range and check the wiring connections, you can likely fix this problem yourself. If the wiring connections are okay, the next step in troubleshooting is to replace the door lock assembly (part W10107820). You can order this part from the Sears PartsDirect website. Replacing this part will likely fix your problem. If you replace the door lock assembly and still have the same problem then the electronic oven control board may also need to be replaced. If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

What does error message F5 mean?


There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, & testing..

I'm not finding the one for for this model online.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If it's a convection model, F5 would be a damper door sensing error, which is usually a bad switch.

More info on switches is here.

One of the damper-related components, either the switch or motor or the damper door may be binding.

The damper is a door inside that opens or closes depending on cooking mode. If the controller senses that the door is not in the right position, it will shut down the cook cycle.

If it's not a convection model, F5 is probably a sensor error.

On some models, "SENSOR ERROR" appears on the display when:
  • Using the sensor feature, the door was opened before steam could be detected. Do not open the door until stream is sensed and time is shown counting down on the display.
  • Steam was not detected in the maximum amount of time. Use Time Cook to heat for more time.
Here's some info from Samsung, which is the actual manufacturer of these ovens:

"Some models are equipped with a sensor that can automatically adjust the oven's heating time based on the amount of steam in the oven. If your microwave is displaying E1, E4, or E5, there may be an issue with the gas sensor. For an E1 error, press the Cancel button and check on the food.

"Other microwaves do not give specific error messages and just display "8888" on the LED. If you get this error message, your microwave needs service.

"If the message is either ERROR or E-6, it indicates a mechanical fault.

"For all error indications, including the SE or 5E error, try unplugging the microwave from the outlet for at least ten minutes and then plug it back in. If the error persists, the microwave may require service. Please use our ASC Locator to find your nearest Authorized Service Center."

Feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.

Whirlpool Gold Accubake system microwave indicates door open whenever try to heat. Light (inside microwave) does not come on when door is open. Door open error stays on until cancel button clicked then...


I just had the same problem with my microwave. First DISCONNECT THE POWER. Remove the front top grill (screws are on top of microwave). Unscrew the one screw at the top of the control panel and lift it out of the way. You will see three micro switches to the left of the pannel. I bent the metal frame they were mounted to by hand to move them back into place. The microwave oven works great now. If this does not help, then I would consider replacing the top limit switch.

You have a faulty keypad. You could probably special order this part from a local appliance parts supply store for 50-60$ or purchase a new microwave.
