I was cleaning my Jenn-Air JER8850 when at the end of the cycle the display flashed F1 and began to beep. Now the door is locked and will not release. Does anyone know how to get the door to release???

Re: Electric Range Door Locked after cleaning

"F1" is an error code for any of the following possible problems: Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board. Wiring harness shorted. Defective touchpad on the control board. I speculate that the control board may have failed during the cleaning cycle, causing your problem. Unfortunately, this may be an expensive repair if it is a control board, and it could be maintenance intensive to get to the door latch to release it. You will need to lift the stove top to gain access to the linkage for the oven door relay. There should be a few screws under the top front to remove. Make sure you unplug the unit or turn off the circuit breaker before servicing. I hope this helps you.

I have a double oven electric whirlpool oven and turned self cleaning on and by mistake as it was loking i opened the door and cannot turn on its showing locked the opens and i can not turn on oven

Hi, Door locked flashing after the attempt of the cleaning cycle. After taking the oven appart to get the door open, I began troubleshooting. I discovered that the door lock motor failed in the locked position. I opened up the motor and found the magnet inside was cracked! The coil winding for the motor was also open. Hope that helps! While your waiting on the new part you can trick the oven by using a zip tie on each of the two lock motor micro switches to hold them closed and remove the lock lever. The oven will work just fine.

This is not a problem. The cleaning cycle goes on for approximately 4 hours as I recall. it will unlock by itself when done. Read your user guide for troubleshooting tips. if you can't locate your copy, one is available on line at the Jenn-Air site

Beeping, flashing, oven door locked, display shows F-1

F1 Defective touch pad or membrane Replace touch pad or membrane (this problem is usually the touch pad) F1 Watchdog on board Replace touch pad or clock assembly (also called the ERC) BUT you also need to check the Oven Temperature Sensors The Oven Temperature Sensors should read room temperature, 70°F, the resistance is 1000-1200 ohms. make sure you pull off the wires to measure the sensor's resistance and it reads open it is bad. and you will have to replace it too. hope this helps.
