Possible solution: The clean oven safety latch is in the latched position already. Move latch to opposite side and try closing door again. Latch not usually needed except during cleaning cycle.

Good luck,

GE wall oven JK3800SHSS. Started clicking loudly during last 5 mins of Self-Clean. Ongoing clicking and running fan. How do I diagnose/fix this?


what was the error code?you should never self clean your oven before any big holidays,for reasons like this, if it takes out a part the part most likely will have to be ordered and the last day they take orders at my parts store is monday before thanksgiving so if it's your clock and you have to order it you might not have it for thanksgiving so hopefully you just have a bad latch assy. and you can get it fixed before the holiday,from what i've seen i will never self clean my oven,i use easy off and scrub it,the oven gets up to 1000 degrees and it damages the electronics in the oven.the clicking you hear could be the latch assy. unplug the oven.open the door and see if the hook part that locks into the door isn't jammed,i just went out tuesday to change a latch assy and that part was jammed,the rod that goes from the motor and to the door latch was hitting the metal part of the latch that bolts to the frame and i couldn't move the hook part or catch at all and the motor was clicking trying to move it,i had to lift the top of the stove,bend the body of the catch assy. so the rod could move freely and that fixed it.but using the self clean short lives the oven and it can damage the latch or the clock assy.send the error or just goggle it and it will tell you what it is.

We have a 24" wall


The problem is due to the door latch and specially one of the two micro switches is not contact properly that is why when you cracked little the oven can work little better. So all you need is check the latch at the back and if nessesary replace the latch

I am getting a E1 F5 error on the oven - what is the cause?


E1 F5 error is indicate that door latch is not working

This may display if the door is not shut properly, if it is jammed or if the spring-loaded mechanism has broken. Make sure door is completely closed and switch is closed. Test latch, solenoid and actuation switch (require an ohm meter to test).

Considerations: Try opening the oven door and shutting it while putting pressure on the center of the switch until you hear a click. Jiggle the latch to try and reposition it so that it shuts properly. Examine the latch to make sure it is properly attached.

Prevention/Solution: If none of those methods remove the error, you may need to replace the door latch. Visit the Whirlpool customer service website to find the correct part you need.

Hope this helps.

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.

Good Morning: The self cleaning mode engages, locks the oven on the bottom, but does not clean. On the top, the latch does not engage at all on the self cleaning mode. What to do?


A safety feature on the oven door latch is preventing it from going on to clean. Find the reason the door wont latch on top section and it should clean then.

We know your controls are working asking the clean cycle to start because your lower door latches.

SO

Some things to check :

1. Bent or worn out door latch or striker or catch assembly
2. No power to motor to move latch assemble
3. Board for self cleaning may have fuse out or be bad entirely.
4. Motor assembly that moves the latch could be bound up or worn out

If this helps you understand your problem please rate me as high as you can and thank you for using fix ya. Good Luck and God Bless.
