    Don't ask me why, but my mom took the door off the stove and took it apart. Now she can't remember how to put it back together. Please help. Since I didn't see her do it, I have no clue how every thing goes back together. If someone could point me in the direction of the specs with pics, I could do it.

How do you use the self-cleaning ??? i lost my manual within minutes of getting....


we have a sears kenmore model and this is how we do it. remove everything from stove including the racks, close oven door, slide door lock latch to the right till it locks the door. turn knob to clean. when it is done cleaning it will turn off by itself. on some models the door latch will not slide open when done. just wait for it to cool if this is the case. it should tell on the touch pad on stove the hours that it takes to clean it. good-day !

I HAVE A WHIRLPOOL MODEL NUMBER RF368LXKQ RANGE AND WHEN I TRY THE SELF CLEAN BUTTON I GET F5E1 WHAT IS THE PROBLEM


Hello,

The F5E1 error codes means that the door light switch OR a switch on the self clean latch has failed. If the oven light comes on and goes off when the door is opened and closed it most likely going to be a switch on the latch thats the problem.

The part numbers are;

DOOR LATCH W10107830

LIGHT SWITCH 3195993

The Oven and Range are working; however I have a F5 code on the display. Can you tell me what this means?


The F5 code means that the range door isn't latching properly (for some Whirlpool ranges). Check the latch when the oven is cool. If it is loose, tighten the screws that hold the latch. Try opening and closing the door to see if the latch is clicking shut properly. Then unplug the range for 30 seconds to a minute to reset the unit. If the error clears, you're done.

If the error persists, clean the latch area. With the oven not in use, rub the latch area with a cloth that you dunked in hot water and wrung out the excess water. Then dry with a paper towel.

If cleaning doesn't help, the latch probably needs to be replaced.

I hope this helps. Please give me the model number of your range for additional ideas. Whirlpool has the user's manuals for most of their appliances at their site. See http://www.whirlpool.com/custserv/index.jsp and the Manuals and Literature search box.

Whirlpool oven gas range is beeping and is displaying F5E1.


This is a problem with the door latch switch. You will need to remove, check for continuity with latch open no continuity closed should have continuity. If the switch has continuity with latch open replace. I have replaced quite a few of these over the years, they usually seem to go during a cleaning or right after the oven was cleaned. Enter your model # at www.appliancehelponline.com for an illustration. The switch is inexpensive and easy to replace.

Range with Error Code F5 E0


HI.The Door switches do not agree (condition exists when door switch is closed indicating an open door, and latch switch is closed indicating a locked door)

1. If door latched:
  1. Disconnect power from unit.
  2. Check wires and connectors from control to door switch, then from door switch to control. If no damage to wires and all connectors okay, proceed to step C.
  3. Replace door switch.
  4. Re-apply power.
  5. 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.
2. If door not latched:
  1. Disconnect power from unit.
  2. Check wires and connectors from control to latch switch, then from latch switch to control. If no damage to wires and all connectors okay, proceed to step C.
  3. Repeat steps A and B for door switch.
3. Measure door switch (door open = switch open small low voltage terminals). Replace switch if defective.
4. Measure latch switch (unlatch = switch open, CAUTION - oven light contacts are closed). Replace switch if defective.
5. If corrections are made in any step, reconnect power to control. Press and hold any key for 1 minute to clear R failure code from memory. F2 will appear. Press CANCEL and observe for 1 minute to ensure operation is correct.
6. If failure remains, disconnect power and replace control.

your latch is defective. they have parts that melt when you use the self cleaning cycle. they also just go out. the door should auto latch when you start the cycle but it times out when it is not seen.
