Oven beeping, door locked F9 error

I have an electric glass top with an electronic panel. I had a party last night and someone hit the buttons on the control panel. The stove now beeps, the door is locked. If I push the cancel button, it stops beeping for a few seconds and then begins again and F9 comes on the screen. It will not let me set it to clean or give it any other command.
I had this problem once before, but the door was open and I could reset the lock from inside. If I can get the door to open, I think I can take it from there.

Re: oven beeping, door locked F9 error

Have you tried to unplug the range for 5 minutes? That may reset the programming that is going on.

Frigidaire smooth top electric range flashes f9 after cleaning

The "F9" error code means the EOC (electronic oven control) has found the lock motor switches to be out of sequence or shorted.
Test switches and if there is nothing wrong then replace the EOC.

What is the model number?

I attempted to hit the self clean button but received a F9 beeping flashing error until I unplugged the range from electricity. How do I stop this F9 error?

Hello & Welcome to FixYa
Error F9 means Latch unlock lower and is displayed due to obstruction in door lock mechanism. If after cleaning the door lock mechanism the problem is still there then replacing the door lock mechanism is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

How do I clear error beeping (F9) on my Amana gas range

try to hold in on the oven light switch plunger that the door would hit if it was closed properly. what you probably did was to pull the door open while it was trying to lock. once you hold the plunger in, then hit the clean cycle again and then push to cancel button to get the door latch to unlock the door. it may take a minute or two but that should clear up the error code and let you use the oven again.
next time if you push the clean by mistake, just let it go and then when it says "locked" just push the cancel button. it will unlock and be ready to use.

My Electric Frigidaire Convection Oven just locked it's own door! I heard a continual beep..then "Err" "F9" flashed, then beeping stopped and the illuminated "padlock" symbol lit up and the door locked...

I have a similar problem with my electric Frigidaire convection oven, which flashes ERR F9 and beeps after finishing a cleaning cycle; if you haven't had to have it repaired professionally by now you might try cutting the circuit breaker to the oven for a few seconds and then turning it back on. My oven takes a few minutes to reset, after the circuit is turned back on, but then will unlock the door and let me reset the clock and continue cooking as normal. . . until the next time I set the clean cycle.

Frigidaire Range FEF357BBD error code F9

I had the situation where the oven thinks the door is locked but it was not locked. Setting and holding clear eventually gave a f9 error.
I solved this by turning the circuit breaker off and taping over the oven light switch ( so it thinks it really is locked ) and turning on the breaker. The oven unlocked and appears fine now.

F9 Code after power outage - Model JGR8855ADS

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.

Fault Code Interpretation Components To Check
F-1 Communication error between touch pad and ERC (clock)
Replace the touch pad or clock.
F-2 Oven temperature sensed by electronic control Replace the clock/relay board
F-3 Open oven sensor or harness. Replace the oven sensor
F-4 Shorted oven sensor or harness Replace the oven sensor
F-5 Power to element relay disabled in cook mode Replace the clock/relay board
F-7 Shorted touch pad key sensed for 32 secs. Replace the touch pad/control panel
F-8 Shorted meat probe Replace the probe jack.
F-9 Door lock safety circuit on ERC sensed Replace the door latch assembly
F-C or F-0 Communication error between boards Replace the relay board

My frigdaire stove door finally opened manually from behind but

F9 code: An F9 code indicates the EOC has detected a problem with the motor door latch assembly. Check the contacts of the lock switch, wiring to the lock motor assembly, and the lock motor.
