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.

Re: KDRP407HSS oven door adjustment

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.)

Re: KDRP407HSS oven door adjustment


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

I have a Kenmore Elite double oven, model 790.48123801.(4 years old). My wife attempted to operate the self-cleaning feature and 29 seconds later an F90 error message appeared, the oven began to beep

Oven door latch error code. The oven door latched but the control board did not receive a signal that the door was latched.
The only time that the latch is used is during the cleaning cycle.

I have a Kenmore Range Model 95012102. After canceling the self cleaning oven process the code E1-F5 appeared on the display panel and the oven remains locked.


The F5-E1 error code means that one of the switches on the door latch hasn't fully set itself to the door open(non clean) mode. One thing to try is to open the oven door and push the light switch in by hand while pushing the clean button on the control and see if the latch will open just a little more thusly the switch will open a bit more into the normal mode.

If by pushing the clean button...waiting 5 minutes (whith the door open)then push cancel and see if the latch fully opens..the door latch switch would need to be replaced.

The part number for the latch asm. which includes the switch is W10107820

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.

Ok. Open the door and find the oven light switch(es) (some models had two switches). Press the switch(es) in and see if the latch goes back to the home position. If not enlist a volunteer to turn on the self clean cycle while you are holding the switch(es) in. Just after the self clean starts have them hit cancel and wait until the lock comes back to it's "home" or unlocked position.
Good luck!!

My oven door will not close it has a lock button showing can't cancel

make and model??
is not actuallly physically closing??? perhaps the lock/ latch has partially engaged prevetning door from closing, and with the door oopen it cannot do anything for safety reasons. can you see a door /light switch thtyou can depress by hand??? if so push and hold it in the light should go out, and at this point continue to hold in switch and try starting a self clean cycle ( dont worry it wont actually start cleaning right away)it then should activet the latch assy to fully engage and suppoedly lock door, still depressing the button then press thecancel button and the latch should return to the normal resting position and you can close the door

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.

Self clean inoperative

Dear Superglide, An error code "F5 E1" means "door latch not operating". In such situation I would recomend to replace the oven lock assy (part # 9782611 ) which is located on the back panel.If you are going to do it yourself - DO NOT forget to unplug the power cord first. About service manual - try to call Kitchen Aid directly.
