Push and hold the cancel/off button for 4 seconds.
See if a code appears. If so write it down.
Turn off the gas supply to the range.
Unplug the range.
Pull the range out from the wall.
Remove the top and bottom rear panel covers.
On the left side just below the rear burner is the latching mechanism.
Unhook the actuator rod from the mechanism and open your oven.

Do you have a code to report?

My oven is locked. Display shows F5:E7 How do I unlock it?


Vera, Code F5 E7 your latch assembly has failed. Turn oven breaker off to the unit for 5 min. to see if it will reset. If not, then try to set the self clean, wait 1 min. and cancel it to see if that will reset the door latch. If it does not reset the door lock, then you will have to manually open the door and replace the door latch assembly. It's not easy task to unlock the door. You'll need to use a coat hanger and pull the latch assembly from (right - left) by slipping it down between the door and the oven top. Force the latch over to the left and open the door, then you will have access to remove latch.

How to Troubleshoot the Door Lock on your Stove Range

1 Answer

Maytag range model mer6750 - I tried to open the oven door too soon after a self cleaning cycle Now door won't open and fault code F9-2 appeared. What to do? THANK YOU


Try unplugging the oven from the electrical power. May release the lock, which is held in place by a tiny micro switch. If not and while the electric is still off or the oven is unplugged, use a bright light flashlight to look through the slot where the lock is in the oven, not in the door.
You may be able to use a thin blade screwdriver to move the lock to the release position. Check the angle of the lever. A slightly bent lever handle also can cause this type of condition.

If all else fails, remove the access panel on the front of the oven to access the locking device and release it. May have to disconnect the wires to the lock which will allow door to function but not during any self cleaning modes.

F9 Door Lock Warning Check door lock circuit or Replace Clock
F-2 Oven temperature sensed by electronic control Replace the clock/relay board.
Here is the part you need to order.

I am receiving the F9 code. The oven will not turn on. I have reset the oven but it still does not work


Hi

F9 is a door lock error and to solve this issue you can hold the light switch for 15 seconds, this will reset the control. If it won't work then hold the light switch in and set the unit to clean and after a minute press cancel to cancel the clean cycle. If still it won't work then the door lock assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Oven door on gas range won't open. Apparently the "clean" cycle was initiated and locked the door and now won't open. Also didn't clean. The range is 4 burner about 25yrs old. I do...


Hello & Welcome to FixYa
This is a common problem that occurs when self-clean cycle is used after a long time or when the oven gets old. Recommended repair is replacing the door latch-lock assembly as the latch mechanism cannot be repaired. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Oven door lock does not unlock, I turned on the self clean mode and then changed my mind and turn it back off about 3 minutes later. But it does not unlock. The lock light is blinking.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. There is an over-temperature switch built into the electrical panel of the oven. Resetting this switch might solve the issue.

To reset it: Turn off the power. Open the door (if door is locked, turn the power back on and gently try pulling the door every few seconds as the locking mechanism cycles until it is unlocked). Remove the 3 screws below the control panel (screws point upwards, with the head just inside the oven). Pull off the face of the control panel. Let it dangle by the wires so that you have access to the space behind it.

Within the electrical enclosure exposed by removing the control panel, look for a small silver and black device with 2 wires attached to the back. The device is about .5" wide by 1" long and is attached with 2 screws to the sheet metal on the bottom of the electrical enclosure.


Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

After using my electric range self cleaning oven an f90err appeared and the door will not open. I would really like to cook my new years dinner .Can you help please ?


F90 Maximum oven door unlock time exceeded.
F91 Maximum oven door unlock attempts exceeded.
F92 Maximum oven door open time exceeded.
F93 Maximum oven door lock time exceeded.
F94 Maximum oven door lock attempts exceeded.


1. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Check the wiring between EOC & Lock Motor Micro Switch.

2. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Replace the Motor Door Latch assembly if necessary.

3. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Check for binding of the Latch Cam, Lock Motor Rod & Lock Motor Cam.

4. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Check to see if Lock Motor Coil is open. If open, replace Lock Motor Assembly.

5. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Lock Motor continuously runs - if Micro Switch is open, replace Lock Motor Assembly.

6. (F92, 93 & 94) Check oven door Light Switch - if open, replace Switch.

7. If all situations above do not solve problem, replace EOC.


F90 is a door lock code, Try this...
unplug the range.
wait 1 minute.
turn the range back on,
then while holding in on the oven door.
start another self clean.
wait 2 minutes.
then cancel the self clean.

do not release the door until the door lock light goes out.

I woke up one morning recently with the oven door on "locked." The stove works, but the oven door will not open. As far as I know, nothing in the oven works. The "door" sign shows up on the window where the clock is.

DCS gas oven locked


I let the door stay open, hold the switch closed with my finger, activated self clean. Let it run for a minute then hit cancel, the stove heating element shut off and the locked door blinked for 5 seconds then finally stopped. Back to normal.
