Question about KitchenAid Architect Series KEMC308KSS Electric Double Oven

1 Answer

Open Door Message

The microwave oven displays a digital reading that the door is open when it is not. I have checked the door switches with a meter and each of the three switches are functioning. Is there anyway to "reset" this code. I was told by a repair tech that the fix may be as much as $1000. Does this sound reasonable?

Are you positive the switches are good?those switches go back to a relay board,turn off the unit and trace the wires from the switches back to the board.lighty tap on the relays (they could be stuck closed prompting that message}.if that doesnt work the relay board may be bad and yes they are expensive but i think $1000 is on the high end.

Upper oven turn on and off then puts f9


F9 indicates a problem with the door latch circuit. Holding the door in the open position, push in the door switch until the cavity light goes off. Put the upper oven in the clean cycle and watch to see if the door latch cycles.

If the door latch mechanism is working correctly, the latch should stop in the closed position (the door will not shut all the way now). If the door latch does not even move and the F9 error appears, which is highly likely, you definitely have a problem with the latch circuit. (If the door latch did cycle to the closed position, cancel the self-clean mode to cycle the latch back to the open position.)

First, check that there are no loose wires on the door latch switches. Also check that none of the wires are pinched between the latch mechanism and the Oven Control Unit. Repair any wires that may be damaged and reconnect any connections that maybe loose. If you have just made any repairs, try putting the oven into bake mode with the door closed and test.

If there was no wiring that needed repaired and all connections looked good, test each of the door switches to be operating properly. Disconnect the wires from one switch at a time and perform a continuity test on the switch. In the open position your meter should read "OL", in the closed position it should emit a tone, or read "0.0". If either switch fails this test, replace the switch and test your oven again.

If none of the above conditions exist, the Oven Control is not reading input from the door latch sensor and needs to be replaced.

Member Discussion on Whirlpool GMC305PRS01 Microwave Oven

Whirlpool Wall oven/microwave combo unit Door message
Does anyone know where the 15 amp fuse is? I replaced the 20amp fuse and it worked for a minute or two and then I opened the door and I blew my circuit breaker. I reset my circuit breaker, replaced the 20 amp fuse and now all I get is the Door message. I also noticed that it fused the outside switch on the right side of the door so I had to open the switch up and un-fuse it. This is for a whirlpool GMC305PRS01 Wall Oven/microwave combo unit.

Also if anyone could tell me the correct position the wire is supposed to be hooked up on the switches? I had someone help me take the switch out and they unhooked the wires and now we aren't sure how they are supposed to be hooked up. My light on the microwave doesn't work either. Is it possible the bulb blew when the fuse blew?

If the digit did not toggle after replacing the door switch harness, go to step F.
B. Unplug oven or disconnect power.
C. Replace door switch. (If door switch is integral to the door latch motor
assembly, replace the entire door/latch motor assembly). Go to step H.
D. Unplug oven or disconnect power.
E. Check the integrity of the harness wires and connections between the
appliance manager and the door/latch assembly. Ensure there are no shorted
or pinched wires.
If the wiring harness is pinched or damaged, replace the door switch harness.
Go to step H.
If wiring harness is good, go to step H.
F. Unplug oven or disconnect power.
G. Replace appliance manager. Go to step H.
H. Replace all parts and panels before operating.
I. Plug in oven or reconnect power.
J. Press OFF, OFF, START to reenter the Diagnostic mode and complete checks.

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!
