Question about Kitchen Ranges

4 Answers

Whirlpool RS675PXB or RS6755XB Built in Electric Stove Top and Oven. The Oven Cleaning latch is stuck so the oven door will not open. The Lever was forced open, the automatic oven latch is still locked. 1) Tried a Cleaning Cycle which worked.. but it did not unlock the oven after cool down. 2) Opened circuit Breaker to oven and the lock did not reset.

    Could not follow the thread and it took me to a solution about temprature control not a locked oven door

  • RJEDad Apr 13, 2009

    The Oven Stove Unit is built in the Cabinets and the mounting screws are behind the oven door which I cannot open. I can access the latch if I remove the front glass of the oven. Is there anyway I can get the door open then that will allow me get to the back panel. I should have put that in my first question. Sorry about that.

    No error message that I see even after running through another complete cleaning cycle for 2 hrs

Dear customer,
                 You may have to unplug the oven/appliance from the electrical power, disable the locking device and not use the self clean cycle anymore or until another problem developes which requires a service tech. At that time have the lock replaced.

Or replace the locking device yourself. But first check and insure the lever is traveling far enough to unlock the device, the lever is not bent, etc. May be able to disassemble front panel and manually release the locking device and/or disconnect the quick disconnect wires to the device, etc.

The above suggestions are not the professional methods granted. But if you do not want to fix the device or replace it, bypassing it is possible. All you will loose is the self cleaning operation, until a fix is done correctly.

thank you..

    set the selfclean and after you hear it lock down then cancel the operation and wait to give it time to unlock ,,, may take up to 10 minutes ,,, if it dont unlock you will need to get into the back of it and run the door latch back by hand
    Take the back cover off the the stove. UNPLUG THE STOVE
    On the left rear facing the back of the range youll see that the timer motor had stopped.may sure you unplug the input(230 volt power) leading to the stove, then unpluggand insulate the wiring to the timer motor and the microswitch on top of it ( 4 wires). Then take the long steel wire off of it and unlatch the oven door.
    this probably had something to do with the timer motor on the self cleaning cycle and that it was stuck
    Do NOT use the self cleaning function unless you fix the timer motor. Replace it or clean it.
    Hope this helps

    Oven locks for 2 reasons:
    1. Cleaning cycle which gets really really hot for ~2hr
    2. Parent protection.

    If you press and hold Cancel for 15-30Sec, it should unlock it. If not, pull the plug ;-)

    If it still does not unlock, the lock mechanism may be stuck. Power pushes a pin out, a spring pulls it back in, If it sot too hot, it my be stuck. Try hitting it with a shoe in the top middle, under the handle. If it won't unlock, you may hafe to take the top off to release it. Call Whirlpool cust support at 1-800-253-1301 for assistance.

Are you getting any error message ?

First, disconnect the power to the range (either unplug it or turn the power off at the circuit breaker). Pull the range out and remove the back panel.
Your range has a door latch in the front and a door latch solenoid (with latch switches) in the back. There is a thin metal rod that connects the two.
When the board sends a signal to the solenoid to lock the door, the solenoid turns the rod which locks the latch.
With the back panel off, you should now see both the solenoid and the rod.
You can now manually release the latch by turning the rod (probably clockwise). You should now be able to open the door.

Put everything back the way it was and with the door open turn the power back on. Press and hold any key on the board for one minute. This should release the error code (if you are getting one). Press CANCEL and give it a few minutes to see if the code comes back. If it doesn't, you can start baking If it does come back, you'll need to test the latch switches and the solenoid.
Let me know the. Kindly rate the answer ...
Thanks
Kevin

It's frozen on E1 -F5- and oven won't come on. the top of stove is ok


Your code refers to a door latch problem that is stopping the oven circuit from completing.
It could be a bad door latch switch.(most likely).
OR
A bad relay on the control board to the door switch.

I am in the process of cleaning my Whirlpool self cleaning oven and it seems like there should be about 2 hours left on the timer and when I came out to the kitchen the timer was off and the door is still...


most likely the safety latch got stuck from the super heat of the oven while cleaning. try tapping the latch with a screwdriver and hammer, spray a bit of wd-40 on it wont hurt. i believe the self cleaning on ovens is crazy, as the heat damages things, including the finish of the unit.
