OK, what has happen here is, the actual temp sensor has failed during the cleaning process, this has cause a temp that reached a dramatic high range(above 915F-930F). At these temps, there will be major damage that will weld the contacts on the door lock switch mechanism and control board.

If actual over temperature condition occurred: Look for welded relay contacts. If this happens, replace oven control (also called clock or ERC).

If no over temperature condition occurred: Look for a high resistance connection or any other cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace sensor if found defective. Check door lock switches for faults as well(welded contacts and burned wiring harness)

Remember: Oven control (ERC) measures resistance of sensor circuit , not actual oven temperature.

Oven self-clean won't turn off!!


You will need to press the stop/cancel button, this will clear the cleaning cycle, due to the interruption. If this does not clear the display you will need to unplug the stove for five minutes and then plug it back in and this should clear the display.

Lock light on frigdaire self cleaning oven


OK, this is not a good situation here. your Electronic Oven Control board is damaged. the logic sectors are faulty. The F-1 represents a major EOC failuer and, you will need to replace your EOC(clock) asap, if possible.

Dacor CPO230, can't get lock to engage for self cleaning. I follow step clean symbolcomes up door lock moves into locked position then beeping starts and the word door flashes and the lock opens up.


For some reason the oven thinks you have a door that is not shut all of the way. Check the locking slot to make sure that there are no obstructions. Make sure that you are only doing one oven at a time, and not trying to cook in the other. Make sure you have no racks in the oven. Try pushing lightly on the door when the lock engages. For some reason your lock isn't engaging fully and that's why door is flashing. Good Luck
Below is from the owners manual for your oven.

Oven does not self-clean Door not shut tight Check for obstructions. Close door tightly
Oven set for delay timed cleaning Oven will start to self-clean at preset time.
Press CANCEL/SECURE to return to
normal operation
Double ovens only: Other oven is on. Turn off other oven.

Oven lock light


Oven lock is usually associated with oven cleaning. Last owner probably tried to clean the oven for you and didn't finish the cycle. Either finish cycle or turn it off (if possible).

Thermador double oven / Bake wont work /FC code flashed once


I found I have this exact problem. Same bake preheat issue: I can bake if I set broil first. However, the oven doesn't work if I press bake first. The control board has already been replaced a couple times over the years. Is this another replacement??

Kenmore 790 Oven Locking mechanism problem


I had the same problem. Open the oven door. Press and hold the light switch. You will hear the door lock move back into the correct position. Hope this fixes your problem. This has happened to me twice and holding the light switch always works.

Amana oven


Error F-9 means:Door lock safety circuit on ERC sensed Replace the door latch assembly

To solve this...Just press and hold the door latch to unlock position and then press cancel for a few seconds. The latch will return to its original position

This will probably fix it..but if doesnt work try this
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.
