Question about KitchenAid KDRP407HSS Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range

KDRP407HSS oven door adjustment

OK, got the infamous F 05 error after the oven cleaning cycle...turns out the door isn't fully depressing the latch plunger so the solenoid can't move freely.

So how do I adjust the door... I had most of the front trim off & it would appear there are no adjustments....which leaves the springs in the door itself. I didn't see any adjustment for those which means replacement.... any hints on how to do this & not loose an eye. Those springs look like they are under a whole lot of tension.

    My range door also didn't close all the way at the top. It was ajar about 1/4 inch all the time. The heat coming out over time fried the electronics behind the control panel. Dealer replaced hinges and electronics and it was OK for awhile. Gap opened up again, and this time dealer installed shims at the hinges. He said if it happens again, the frame of the oven would need replacement. Well it has happened again. This is a poorly designed range door, plain and simple. Everyone with this problem should seek restitution from Kitchenaid. This $$$ "professional" range is more show than professional. You have to baby it and never let the door drop on its own weight.

I found a solution. Remove door (very simple procedure listed in Use and Care Guide). Make a shim and attach it to the end of the hinge arm (the part of the hinge protruding from the door that goes into the slot in the frame). I used metal shears and a coffee can and made a metal strip that I wrapped around the arm 3-4 times. Reinstall door and it should be tight at the top. (Unfortunately I suspect this fix will be temporary until the ill-designed hinge mechanism starts bending again.)

Had the same problem with my Whirlpool stove.

Solution, remove door (as per instruction manual)

Use double back tape to stick a nickel on the stove frame under the holes where the stove attaches. Replace the door.

The bottom of the hing will rest on the nickel, pushing the top of the oven door closed.

Good luck

How to unlock a Maytag double oven

Hi Mary,If the door locked after you started the oven!
Press Cancel/Off key to start a latch reset, wait 20-30 seconds and open door, or turn the power off at the circuit breaker or fuse box for one minute, then turn the power back on.
If the oven has a manual latch handle!
Allow the oven to cool, approximately 30-90 minutes, move the latch arm to the left to unlock the door.
If the latch arm will not move after cooling to room temperature, or is stuck in between full right and full left positions, schedule service.
Is the oven door locked due to power failure during Self-Clean? If the oven door locked due to a power failure during a self cleaning cycle!
Select the "Self Clean" option, then select "Cancel". Wait a couple of minutes then try to start the cycle again.
If you started the oven clean cycle by mistake!
Press Cancel/Off key. The oven will need to cool to approximately 200F(95C) before the oven door will open.
Was there an error message!
Follow directions in the display, and refer to the Error Code Symptom, or:
Reset power to the oven!
  • Power the oven down by turning off the circuit breaker(s) or fuse(s) or if you can, unplug the oven for one (1) minute.
  • Turn the power back on turning on the circuit breaker(s) or fuse(s) or plugging it back in.
  • Monitor the oven for one (1) minute to ensure the error code does not display again.
  • Verify the ovens operation.

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

Also you can find a new latch at the links and here

White westinghouse oven stove door has locked and cannot open

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
when this type of error occurs the thing to remeber is that these ovens have a internal reset feature on it and when the door locks like this you need to reset it this is done by first unplugging the oven and leaving it for 1 hour minimum WITHOUT TOUCHING IT then when the hour is over plug in the oven and you may hear a audiable beep if so great ***note sometimes this beep will occure within 5 minutes of the oven being plugged back in so you may have to wait for it ok but if it doesent happen simply press the cancel button and unlock the door as you would normally would ok***
If this doesnot solve the problem you will have to manually open the door this is done by removing the lower drawer up where the door latch is there is a release tab that has to be tripped in order for the door to open ok if you can get your arm up in there you can trip it from there

My kenmore 46745 or 46749 (both models listed on the manual) door is jammed. I accidentally opened the oven door, stopping a cleaning cycle after only 15 seconds, and now the door will not close...the lock...


If you've interrupted the clean cycle or have accidentally set the clean cycle with the oven door open, the latch may have engaged and now the door can't be closed because it will hit the latch. There may be a door activated switch on the front face of the oven. In this case you may need to manually press that door switch with your finger while at the same time canceling the clean cycle to get the latch to retract so the door can close fully again.

We have a dishwasher model:SHU9925UC/14. The problem is that when I run a cycle it doesn't fill up with water. Please can you help us.thank you.

Check this all causing not fill water:

  • Check that the water supply is turned on. The valve may be located under the sink.
  • Check the door latch
  • Test the door switch
  • Inspect the float assembly
  • Inspect the fill tube for kinks
  • Test the float switch
  • Check the inlet valve filter screens
  • Test the water inlet valve
  • Test the drain valve lever arm
  • Check the drained valve
The water inlet valve can be identified by the water hoses connected to it. One hose will lead from the valve to the pump/motor assembly in the center of the dishwasher. Check that the hoses are securely connected to the valve and that there are no kinks in the hoses which could restrict water flow.

The door switch is a separate part from the door latch and is found inside the cabinet. The switch is off when the door is open. Depressing the switch closes the circuit and enables dishwasher operation. Closing the door does not depress the switch all the way. Only when the door is closed and latched, does the door fully depress the switch.
If the door latch is not properly aligned it may not pull the door tightly closed and the door switch will not be fully depressed. Unless the switch is fully depressed the dishwasher will not operate.
It is a simple matter to determine whether the door latch is theproblem. Simply open the door, close the latch and select a cycle anddepress the switch. Note that if the test is successful, with the dooropen, the dishwasher will operate and water may spray out. Make sure tofirst remove all tools from inside the dishwasher. Do not reach insidethe dishwasher during the test. Now, inspect the cabinet where the doormakes contact with it and locate the door switch. It may have aprotruding button or spike or more likely it is a hole with a piece ofmetal or plastic inside it. You must fully depress that switch. If theswitch is recessed, then use a non-conductive object, such as a woodenpencil, to depress the switch.
If the dishwasher begins to operate during this test, then you have isolated the problem. The door switch is not being fully depressed when the door is latched. There are three likely possibilities:
  1. The door latch is misaligned.
  2. The entire door is misaligned.
  3. The striker for the door switch is damaged or misaligned.
To service the door latch, it may be necessary to access it in the control panel. Access varies by model; on some models you can remove just the control panel on others you must remove the interior or exterior panel of the door.
Before removing the control or interior panel, look first for exposed screws that may allow you to adjust the latch or the strike plate. You may be able to loosen the screws and shift the latch on the door or the strike plate on the cabinet. It may require some trial and error, but you can loosen, adjust, tighten and test until it latches properly.

Good luck ;

Oven door will not close because the door lock is on and flashing, also the oven light won't go off. how do I fix the door lock flashing so I can close the oven door completly?

Whilrpool Self Cleaning Range Door won't unlock

try this 1. Verify error code by pressing and holding CANCEL/OFF key for 5 seconds.
Momentarily (less than 5 sec.) press CANCEL key again to remove error code
2. Press and hold any key for 1 minute until F2 E0 code is displayed.
3. Cancel F2 E0 error code.
4. Program and start the clean mode. Observe to see if door locks. If it does not,
inspect the locking mechanism from the solenoid to the latch pawl and door to
find the cause of the problem. If the door is not locking, then 1 minute from the
start of clean, the F5 E1 code will again be displayed. Steps 1 through 3 will
have to be repeated before another clean can be started.
5. Once any mechanical problems with the latch mechanism have been corrected,
program and start a clean cycle (after, if necessary, clearing F5 E1 error code)
to ensure proper operation of the door lock. Immediately cancel the clean mode to observe proper operation of door unlock

RE: f5 fault code; kdrp407hss

Solution!!! The hinges that Kitchen Aid uses are the problem. If the door is opened quickly & bottoms out, the steel in the hinge bends a little. So when you go to close the door it won't close all the way.... which causes problems with the latch , latch switch, oven cleaning, etc.

After taking apart the door several times I realized the hinge can be "fixed" without even removing the door. Follow the directions in the user manual for door removal... after inserting the little metal hinge stops (a drill bit or nail will work) Close the oven door till the stops won't allow it to close any further.....then gently but firmly, push forward. This will bend the hinge back to original shape. Remove the pins...Voila!!!

I wish kitchenaid used hardened steel or a thicker hinge....then this wouldn't happen.
