Question about Ovens
F-9 means:Door lock safety circuit on ERC sensed Replace the door latch assembly
To solve this...Just press and hold the door latch to unlock position and then press cancel for a few seconds. The latch will return to its original position
This will probably fix it..but if doesnt work try this
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.

I DISCONNECTED OVEN FOR 10 MINUTES. PLUGGED IT IN AGAIN AND PRESSED CANCEL-CLEAN TOGETHER FOR 15 SECONDS. THAT SEEMED TO HAVE CLEARED THE PROBLEM.

Kitchen Aid is a piece of "you know what", I had the same problem with the door locking on its own and not opening back up. The best solution without getting screwed by service tech is to start the self cleaning process, let the oven lock and then turn it off and it should unlock. Good luck!

All I needed to do was unscrew the 2 screws holding the lock assembly and it released it!! I screwed it back in and set the oven to self clean and it worked!!
Thanks for saving me the repair service call!!

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.
