Hi, it sounds like one of the "lock" switches for the self clean door lock assembly may be faulty, or the oven door light/monitor switch is faulty. Is the oven light "on" ? Either that or when the unit was last placed in self clean the cycle may have been interupted by a power failure or some other accidental/intentional "cancel" command. Try unplugging the unit and plugging it in again right away. The "reset" should force the oven thru a start-up cycle, it essentially makes the onboard "watchdog/monitor" in the processor to check all the switches for the proper position and makes the lock go thru a lock to unlock position. The unit may correct itself just by going thru this off-on process. Hope that helps, let me know. Good luck

Oven door will not open and will not clean keeps saying E1 and F5

I'm going to post a few walk-throughs I have written over this topic. Hope they help. The oven temperature is regulated by a temperature sensor when placed in self clean the sensor is removed from the circuit and full power is applied to both the bake and broil elements causing an the temperature to exceed in some some models up to 1,000 F. I would recommend against using self clean for the simple fact that no oven cavity to this date has been designed to withstand that high of a temperature and therefore excess heat is passed upward resulting in damaged lock mechanisms, control boards, and other electronic components. The most common complaint I have had with built in ovens besides the element burning out, is the oven door locked shut. When I get to the house and I ask to tell me a little bit of whats going on the story always starts " well, I was using the self clean option" or some variation of the sort.
The latch mechanism has failed. If this happened after using the self clean option then it may be possible that the main control was damaged and could be part of the problem. To get the door open I use a coat hanger with one end hooked to reach in and pull the latch back enough to open the door. Chances are that the control board as well as the lock have failed.

Self test oven door fail and f2 low

You need to align the door. The door is not closing properly, so its leaking heat while oven cook. Open the right side pannel. Remove the IO board ,then gently remove front visual display/soft button board. Then remove the black cap on both side Of door. Losen the oven door arm bolts (just to turns only) .Tap the door from the cennter and then tight the bolts. Reinstall everything Check that door primary switch is latching properly. If not the unscrew the switch and re align. You should be okay

Whirlpool Wall Unit Double -oven. Part # 4451887 REV. C Control Panel doesn't work. Interior lights come on and the oven constantly beeps. We have been waiting for a replacement part for 4 months.

I have the same problem with the same part and was told by AppliancePartPros that the Control Panel would not be available to them until Feb 2012. I noticed a discoloration near a power transister and the big power resister next door (installed with about a 1/2 inch clearance to the PCB board, labeled R188 on my REV A board). The solder connections from the R188 resister to the PCB were cracked. That resister was hot when I touched it and the thermal cycling probably cracked the solder joints after 9 years. I am going to resolder those connections tomorrow and see if that resolves the problem. Do you see any burn marks near that Power transister (3 lead black package with a metal heat sink on its back (the heat sink has a circular hole above the black plastic package)?

Our frigidaire range oven is not able to hold temp...if I set it to 350 it may go as high as 550...but it doesn't always rise that high but it never goes to the temp set or stay at it.


This means a loose/broken wire on the oven temp sensor or the oven temp. sensor itself is bad and should be replaced. To solve this issue test the oven temp. sensor, it should read between 1080-1120 ohms, if the rating is more then that and the door appears to be closing fine then it is the control board that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

My Kenmore Electric Range model 790.9661 seems to have a control board problem. Before replacing the $200 part, just wanted to make sure it was the problem. The clock works, but the oven temperature side...

From your description it sounds that the board is the problem. I found the control panel you need for a lot less than $200 though.
I found one online from a store that I have bought from many times. Part and shipping is about $153. They sell brand name stuff too and they have great service. I hope that this helped you.

Good Luck from a bored repair man!

There are a number of reasons why you may find that your oven doesn't heat up, and troubleshooting oven heating elements is not too complicated, so you should be able to manage this in a few hours. When you are trying to decide what is the cause of your oven not heating up properly, you should be able to identify the different problems, and also understand how to repair the oven without too much difficulty. If you find a lot of problems, then you may need to provide a different solution, for example replacing the heating element and fittings completely.
Heating Element is Broken
This is perhaps the most common cause of the oven not heating up. The element inside the oven will not become hot if the electrical connections are damaged, or if the element itself is not working. The heating element can be removed and replaced easily, and this is perhaps a very good idea if you have any problems with the heating system of your oven. Test the heating element by firing up the oven with the door open, and your hand close to the front of the element. You should be able to feel it warming up, so if it doesn't, take of the screws which hold it in place, and then unplug the connections. You can take the heating element to a store and they should be able to replace the part for you.

Hope this help in solving the problem.....
