Question about Whirlpool GBS307PR Electric Single Oven

Oven light won't turn on or off with the switch

This range is in a rental I own and as I was cleaning the house for a new tenant I noticed that the oven light wouldn't turn on. I assumed it was a burned out bulb and tried to unscrew it. As I was unscrewing it, it kept blinking on and off as if it was a bad electrical connection. Once I had screwed the bulb enough to get it to stay on, I couldn't get it to turn off by the switch and I had to screw it around again to get it to turn off. Can you help me?

It is an electrical problem and if you do not get in a qualified technician to fix the problem it is a jail term for any one not qualified who works on, or authorizes any work by unqualified persons should any person get a shock or be killed

F5e1 error code


The F5 E1 error message indicates the latch motor was unable to lock the door. When the self clean cycle is started, the control board will turn on the latch motor which is mounted on the rear of this range. The motor is connected to a cam that transfers the motors motion to a rod that runs under the cooktop. This rod connects to the actual latch mounted behind the oven door. The control board will then monitor a position switch that is actuated by the latch motor cam. As the motor rotates, the latch will engage the door locking it in place just as the cam contacts the switch button. When the switch contacts close, the control turns the latch motor off and starts the cleaning cycle.

When diagnosing this failure, the error code gives us a good starting point to begin our trouble shooting. I removed the rear panel and started a clean cycle. Once the start button was pressed, the latch motor began to rotate, but didn't stop at the locked position. It continued to rotate three times and then displayed the error. I unplugged the range from the wall and using my meter, did a continuity check of the latch position switch (the one on the right). The switch was reading as an open circuit in standby and when I actuated the switch which tells me the switch has failed. The second switch on the latch assembly, by the way, is to turn the oven light off during the self cleaning cycle to protect the bulb. That way, if you leave the light switch on the control panel turned to the on position, that second switch will turn it back off. Good to know if you can't figure out why the oven light won't turn on.

With the failure down to the latch assembly, I checked the range parts to see if the switch came as a separate piece, but it looks like it's an entire assembly, and not individual parts. I removed the old latch after removing the two screws and six wires, then installed the new latchshow?id=y6f3ez5blva&bids=92089.709229668&type=10&subid=. Once all the wires were back connected to the proper terminals, I put the rear panel back on and plugged the range back into the outlet. Started a self clean cycle, but this time I heard the motor make one revolution and stop. The cycle started for the customer and a few hours later, I am sure the oven was nice and clean.

Help! I am renting an apt (and the owner is overseas) and the oven/range which came with it is an older Caloric Prestige series (gas range and oven) with self-clean feature. It has been cleaned so often...


Hello!
can you find information (sticker / label)in the body of the oven. It will be easy giving you information if you can provide the brand and model number of the oven.
Please post back!

Oven is model 665.95781. I used the cleaning cycle.Oven door will not open. Message is E1 F5. Please help!


Based on your description, the E1 F5 error code likely indicates that the door latch is not operating.

Make sure that the oven door is closed when you start the Self Clean cycle. Check the door switch to see if it is apparently operating properly. Open the oven door and the oven light should turn on. Press in the door switch plunger and the light should turn off. If the light switch is not operating properly, it could cause this type of problem.

If the light switch is operating properly, then you could have a failed door latch assembly. A wiring failure or a problem with the control board could also cause this failure. I recommend that you unplug the range and access the door latch assembly at the back of the range. Pull the upper and lower back panels off of the range. Caution: The edges on these panels can be sharp. Protective gloves are recommended. With the panels off, check the wire harness connections on the door latch assembly.

Elderly tenant unable to use oven as they don't know how to turn it on. elements work ok as new so what is the trick. manual not avl from owner of rental house


You have not mentioned the make model of the oven, whether it is gas or electric.
Please check for gas line, gas valve, gas regulator to open and ignite.
If electric make sure there is power at the outlet, if the circuit has tripped, check mains.
Please consult your landlord before you pull out any units as he could be the best help.

Westinghouse Freestyle 476 Cooktop Oven


After getting an electrician out, apparently the time needs to be set on the oven. As we're in a rental & don't have a manual/ couldn't download one, we got it to work after holding the first two buttons in (the timer buton + the one that looks like a hot pot) along with the + button at the far right, which made the tim tick on, so it could be set.

The oven works now! : )
