    I don't understand how you remove the oven door as you described. When I have the door open all the way, the hinges consist of two metal brackets and cannot be moved? Btw, do these hinges have springs on them so they can be tightened?

Hi,

You will need to unplug your range, then it out from the wall, then open the back access panel, by removing the screws, then you will see your lock latch motor switch assembly, here is a photo of it, you can also click the photo for pricing/ordering information:

Hi there,

First of all you need to open the door all the way, then where the hinges enter the range itself, fold down the 2 clips that will lock the hinges open and let it come off the range, then you need to lay the oven door down on a flat surface and remove the screws holding the back onto the oven door, then swap out the hinges.

Good Luck!!

Thanks

My kenmore W&R locked to start the cleaning process and never turned on, but now won't open. It's been 4 hours.


Verify that the Whirlpool oven is connected to its power source. The oven may sometimes lock down if experiencing a power surge or similar electrical problems. Additionally, check that a fuse hasn't been blown in your home's fuse box. Some older homes may not have the proper wiring to support a high-powered appliance such as a Whirlpool oven. If you are not sure if your wiring is sufficient, consult a local electrician.
  • Check to see if the Whirlpool oven's Control Lock has been turned on, a safety mechanism designed to lock the oven and disable its keypad and display controls. A padlock symbol will be displayed in the corner of the Whirlpool oven's front display panel if it is locked. The oven will not unlock itself on its own even if it is disconnected from its power source. To disable, press and hold the "3" button on the keypad for five seconds until the padlock icon disappears.
  • See if the Whirlpool oven is engaged in its self-cleaning cycle. During the self-cleaning process, the stove will lock its front door and will flash "OVEN LOCKED" on its front display. This is to prevent users from accidentally opening the oven and burning themselves during the high-heat segment in the cleaning process. If you must open the oven, first stop the process by pressing and holding the "OFF/CANCEL" button on the stove's control panel. If the oven remains locked, wait for the internal temperatures to decrease. The locking mechanism is temperature controlled and will not unlock until internal temperatures have cooled.
  • Contact Whirlpool's service department if your Whirlpool oven remains locked and you cannot troubleshoot it or open it. All Whirlpool self-cleaning ovens are covered for five years after the original purchase date. Call the warranty team for assistance by dialing toll-free (800) 253-1301 in the United States, or (800) 807-6777 in Canada. Be prepared to give the oven's model number and purchase date

    I was cleaning my self cleaning whirlpool accubake oven and a F1 and E7 code appeared. I have just bought my house and the prior owner did not leave any manuals. Help please


    Most Whirlpool appliance manuals are available from Whirlpool: http://www.whirlpool.com/owners-center/owners-center-homepage.content.html . You will need the model number from the oven. This should be located behind the oven storage drawer on the rim. It will usually be on the left for a range and on the right for a wall oven. On rare models the plaque with the model number will be behind the door. If you add a comment with the model number, I'll try to post a direct link to the manual.

    Are you sure about the error code? F1 and E7 aren't in my code books. I have an F7 and E1 code that indicates a short between the door switch or latch switch and the chassis or ground. (For double ovens, there are two of the switches for each door. The code doesn't specify which oven has a bad switch.) The F5 E7 error is a door latch that will not unlock. An F3 E7 error indicates that the warming drawer sensor has shorted out.

    For the F3 E7 error, simply replace the sensor. For the other two errors, the solution depends on the door lock state. You start by unplugging the oven and checking all the wires and their connectors. See http://www.appliancepartspros.com/repairtips/repairtips_appliance+fault+codes.aspx#Whirlpool%20Range%20/%20Stove%20/%20Oven%20Fault%20Codes for the complete set of steps. If the wires/connectors are okay, you probably need to replace one of the door switches if the oven door was locked when the error occurred. If it wasn't locked, then you can check the voltage to the various switches and replace any that are bad. If it isn't a switch, then it is the control that has failed and must be replaced.

    I hope this helps.

    Whirlpool RF375, door error when using oven


    FWIW I got the same problem after removing insulation on the top ot the oven to deal with rodent fecum/urine headache on RF375PXDW model. There is a microswitch with 2 black wires and 2 white wires related to the lever for the "clean" function. I noted that the 2 smaller guage white wires were stuck together, I seperated them, door error issue went away. Replaced the wires with new homemade, seperate looms. They were obviously melted together, causing a short in the circuit.

    Oven wont work after self clean


    I have a Whirlpool MOD. RBS275PDB17 single electric self-cleaning oven; although the manual is generic, it specifies, "When the cycle is completed and the oven cools, "End" will appear on the lower oven display and "LOCKED' will disappear" and "To Stop Self-Clean any time: Press UPPER/OFF, LOWER/OFF or OFF/CANCEL. If the oven temperature is too high, the door will remain locked. It will not unlock until the oven cools." Has your oven had time to cool?
