  • Disconnect power from unit.
  • Re-apply power.
  • Press and hold any key down for 1 minute to clear F5 failure code from memory. F2 will appear. Press CANCEL and observe for 1 minute to ensure operation is correct.

  • This might work...

    If not, you will need to call a tech. This is usually a door switch/Interlock problem.

    Cannot find my manual and would like to know how to use the self-cleaning part. I held the button down for "lock", but the door did not lock, and where do I go from there?


    Give this a try:
    1. Verify error code by pressing and holding CANCEL/OFF key for 5 seconds. Momentarily (less than 5 sec.) press CANCEL key again to remove error code display. 2. Program and start the Clean mode. Observe to see if door locks. If it does not, inspect the locking mechanism from the solenoid to the latch pawl and door to find the cause of the problem. If the door is not locking, then 1 minute from the start of the Clean, the F5 E1 code will again be displayed. Press CANCEL key to remove error code display. 3. Once any mechanical problems with the latch mechanism have been corrected, program and start a Clean cycle (after, if necessary, clearing F5 E1 error code) to ensure proper operation of the door lock. Immediately cancel the Clean mode to observe proper operation of door unlock.

    Self cleaning feature


    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.
