Got F5 E1 code

Just want to get the oven door open. How do you raise the top of the range? It looks like screws are concealed. Help!

    Working on it, I was on the right track, just didn't want to mess anything up with my experimentation. Gotta leave it to the guru! Will let you know what happens and will ask for further advice. Thanks!

    Got it! Coat hanger with a loop. Took some work, but pulled it to the left and got it! Now for the next step: replace the latch solenoid? This was the first time I tried to use the cleaning feature and am, of course, not too happy with it. You're a lifesaver. What now? Can I disable this thing if I don't want to clean it again (I'm kind of afraid).

Well,the problem is in order to open the top, you need to get to the screws that are under teh top across the fron, however your door is locked and wont allow that.so youll need a coat hanger and som patience forthis one, you should be able to look into thegap between the door and top or parhaps down the side of the unit, you will need to "hook" the latch with the hanger and pull it "i belive to the left. in order unlock the door

Kenmore 95024 Electric Range The self clean cycle Door stuck shu


The E1- F5 error is a door lock error.

The control (TIMER) has likely failed in this instance - BUT...

Sometimes when you disconnect power to a range and reconnect it the electronic range control gets confused.
You should disconnect power again for 15 seconds and reconnect and see if that helps.

If it doesn't cure the E1- F5 error hold the bake button in until E0- F2 appears in the display.
This is the error for a stuck button on the keypad and is the way to clear the memory of the electronic range control.

Sometimes these work, but if the control has failed it won't make any difference.

We just moved into a home with an older model Whirlpool range with a self cleaning oven. When we press the button for self cleaning we get a E1-F5 code. The previous owner did not leave a manual. Can you...


Hi, The E1-F5 code means that there is a problem with the door locking circuit.
Try moving the door lock if access is easy. - then turn off at the wall for 5 minutes to reset.

There could be a faulty connection with the interlock switch or the drive motor. With the power off, Check the switch operation first. It could just be a faulty contact.
To access it, you have to rise the top to access the latch if the motor is bad. There are screws along the front edge when you open the door. These need to come out to lift the top. Take care not to lift too high as you may crack the top.

Error code E1 -F5- Broil element comes on and wont shut off


if it is a whirlpool, kitchen aid or kenmore by whirlpool you need to check the self clean latch asembly found on the rear of the unit. check the micro switches with an ohm meter. always remember to unplug the oven before you test any thing or replace parts. not sure why the broil wouldnt shut off. but the f5 error is definatly related to the door latch.
