Yes, one thing you can try is to use a thin piece of strong metal and try to slide the latch over to open the door. You may have to shake the door as you do this. I have seen this done with a credit card. Similar to opening a door that is locked. Let me know how that does. One last ditch effort is to put the oven in self clean mode and let it run it cycle and maybe it will send a message to open the doot at the completion of it's cycle.

Gas range says dr how to fix it


Hello robin_deathe - Will the door look? Is the door lock indicator light glowing? Try resetting the unit by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately one minute and turn the range back on. This will clear most false error codes. If error code still displays on panel, I would suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately. The unit could possibly have a faulty light switch, door latch or EOC.

F5E1 or FSE1 error code DOOR LOCKED LATCH NOT OPERATING


On this double oven, each door has it's own latch mechanism that consists of a motor, a position switch, and the door switch used to activate the cavity lights. Because the error indicated a latch failure (and the bottom door was locked), Start by cycling the power to the unit. Each time the power is removed and then applied to these ovens, both latches will lock then unlock the doors to ensure they are in the home open position. By doing so, you might be able to get the bottom oven door opened allowing me access to the latch assembly. With the latch removed, I try to begin a clean cycle so you could watch the motor operate and you will probably find that it will start to turn, but never would rotate enough to lock the door. Since the position switch was not actuated at the end of the motor operation, the F5 E1 error was again displayed. Replace the motor assembly

I went to clean the oven and opened the door as the lock came out. It is beeping with an error code FSEO and I can not stop it or make the lock go back in.


Hi

Error code F5-E0 indicates that there is an issue with the door latch switch assembly; if the switch tests open then the door lock assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Aeg b5741-14 oven has code f5 -what does this mean?


Here is a list of oven error codes for your model Kenmore oven.
  1. F0 indicates a Stuck key pad.
  2. F1 and F7 may mean relay is turned on.
  3. F2 indicates that the oven is over temperature in one of the following modes within either cooking or cleaning mode of operation. The control is sensing over 615 degrees with the door lock circuit in the unlock mode. Control senses oven temperature above 915 degrees with the door in the locked mode.
  4. F3 and F4 indicates an open or shorted oven sensor or sensor circuit.
  5. F5 indicates a loss of relay drive circuit.
  6. FF indicates a loss of door motor safety switch.
  7. FC indicates a door lock circuit problem.
If the display of your control is flashing "F" followed by a number or letter its a range malfunction. Press the clear/off pad. Let the range cool for 1 hour and place the range back into operation.
If the problem repeats, call for service.

Oven is model 665.95781. I used the cleaning cycle.Oven door will not open. Message is E1 F5. Please help!


Based on your description, the E1 F5 error code likely indicates that the door latch is not operating.

Make sure that the oven door is closed when you start the Self Clean cycle. Check the door switch to see if it is apparently operating properly. Open the oven door and the oven light should turn on. Press in the door switch plunger and the light should turn off. If the light switch is not operating properly, it could cause this type of problem.

If the light switch is operating properly, then you could have a failed door latch assembly. A wiring failure or a problem with the control board could also cause this failure. I recommend that you unplug the range and access the door latch assembly at the back of the range. Pull the upper and lower back panels off of the range. Caution: The edges on these panels can be sharp. Protective gloves are recommended. With the panels off, check the wire harness connections on the door latch assembly.

Replace switch if defective.
4. Measure latch switch (unlatch = switch open,

F5 fault codes are latch mechanism problems. One means the latch won't lock, the other means the latch won't unlock. Odd you're getting both...

Oven gives code E6 F2 on panel


The problem in our oven has cleared by itself. I did see the E6 F2 error message but for now, it's working fine. Considering the customer service was only able to help to the extent of reading the error code sheet the same as I was (the sheet is behind the touch pad) and seeing how limited the solutions were, we don't think we'll be buying another Whirlpool. I was pretty insulted when the girl a customer quality called to offer me part #8300453 at half cost of $164 providing I have a service guy look at the stove and call in the part. On top of that, the warrenty is 90 days and the part is on back order. Why would the part be on back order? A) they either did not make an ample supply for inventory, B) there are many ovens needing this part. For an oven to require parts after 2.5 yrs of service and 2 self cleanings tells me someone was sleeping with a cigar in their mouth in Quality Control. Or, learning what that meant.

Enjoy the day!

F9 code


I hit the same F9 problem when trying to self-clean, except that the door was locked OPEN.

After much trial and error, I found the following fix: 1. Switch circuit breaker off. 2. Switch circuit breaker on. 3. Press Bake button. 4 Press the small/inside button which indicates that the oven door is closed.

The lock mechanism opened and the oven now works fine.
