I get a Red E1 and a green F5


Hello,

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.

Cannot find my manual and would like to know how to use the self-cleaning part. I held the button down for "lock", but the door did not lock, and where do I go from there?


Give this a try:
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 display. 2. 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 the Clean, the F5 E1 code will again be displayed. Press CANCEL key to remove error code display. 3. 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.

Self cleaning cycle doesnt work. I keep getting an E1 F5 error. How do I get the self cleaning cycle o work?


The E1- F5 error is a door lock error.

The control (TIMER) has likely failed in this instance - BUT...

Sometimes when you disconnect power to a range and reconnect it the electronic range control gets confused.
You should disconnect power again for 15 seconds and reconnect and see if that helps.

If it doesn't cure the E1- F5 error hold the bake button in until E0- F2 appears in the display.
This is the error for a stuck button on the keypad and is the way to clear the memory of the electronic range control.

Sometimes these work, but if the control has failed it won't make any difference.

I am trying to run the self cleaning oven and keep getting a toubleshooting code of e1 f5. Not sure what this means or how to fix it/


Hello- The code you describe- E1 F5 - indicates a problem with the door switch. This little switch tends to fail during or after the 'self-clean' function is used. The switches are difficult to get to on some of these units so plan on just replacing it with a new one. This part is available locally at an appliance parts store with a complete model # from range tag. When power is re-connected, door motor should cycle back to correct position. Remember- techs call it 'self-destruct', so avoid 'self-clean'. The tried and true cleaning methods are a lot less destructive on the circuits and electronics. Let me know if this info helps- have more if needed. Thanks- Ed.

Oven display problem


F5-E1 is a fault code denoting a failed door lock/latch mechanism. Before having it replaced, go outside to you main breaker box and turn the power off to it for a couple of minutes... try to reset the controller. If the fault code appears again, the door lock/latch mechanism needs to be replaced.
