Kitchenaid kgrt607 - cleaning cycle can't lock door properly
I apologize for the second post, but the stove model didn't get included in the first - Kitchenaid kgrt607
When the cleaning cycle is started, the control tries to lock the door.The lock engages, and the door locked light goes on for about onesecond and goes off. One second later the door lock disengages. Aboutten seconds later the lock engages again, and while it is physicallylocked the locked light does not appear. Ten seconds later the lockdisengages, and this continues with it locking and unlocking, nolocking light ever on, for a few cycles before it quits with an errorcode of F5:E1. If it is a fault with the control panel it is stillcovered under warranty and I can put in a service call. If it is thelock, it's a pretty inexpensive part. I need a way to diagnose thisfurther. I have the tools and dvm but no repair manual as to how to getto the lock, etc. Any help is very much appreciated.
More than likely it is the latch out of alignment with the strike. If it cannot engage, then it will stop trying so it will not damage the servo. Go here to check out codes, they are at the bottom of the page, and you can order a repair manual through the same company if you can't find the info on their website, BTW, you can also buy repair parts through them, they have a complete lineup. I buy my parts through them exclusively and have for years now

The model is GGE350LWS00; the self-clean cycle selection is a bit different for this Whirlpool double oven range. Make sure that the oven isn't above 400F before starting the self-clean cycle. Close both oven doors. Press Precise Clean for the appropriate oven; only one oven can be cleaned at a time. For the upper oven, the button is next to the Toast button. The lower oven's Precise Clean is directly below the one for the upper oven. (If the oven doors are open, you will see Door. If the doors are not closed within thirty seconds, the Self-clean will be canceled.) Then press Presets (to the right of the zero button in the number pad) to select the type/ length of the cleaning cycle. You only need to press this once if the default Medium cleaning cycle is appropriate. Press Presets additional times if you need to cycle through to the Heavy or Light cleaning options. The cleaning cycle should start 4 seconds after you last press Presets. If the door locks do not properly engage, the self-clean cycle will be canceled. If the lock mechanism is broken or not getting the message from the control board, you may need check the lock, the wiring or control board to determine the source of the issue.

We have a Kitchenaid Superba gas stove and the beeps would not sound. We thought the control panel was shot, but we have a WONDERFUL repair man. Here was his re-set.....open oven door, push the cancel button, push stop-time button and hold that button for about 5 seconds. When the beep sounds let go and the panel is re-set. WOW!!!!
Happens alot dont feel bad , self clean mode runs the elements at 500 deg. to cook off everything possible , what happens is the cabinet gets to hot and heats saftey temp. fuses until they go out and they are not resetable. they are always located in different areas of ranges but usaully in the back. you can ohm them out to check them if you have a meter.let me know if you have any other questions.
It is simple enough not to need a manual.
1- open the door, then pull outwards. The door mounts slide right out.
2- lay flat on a towel on the floor. Remove screws on the inside of the door.
3- remove each piece and layer of the door and glass panels. Set them aside in order so you know how it goes back together
4- replace broken inner glass panel
5- put each piece back together, install screws
6- slide door (mounts) back into their homes on the front of the range
It is surprisingly simple. All you need is a #2 Phillips screwdriver and a bit of patience.
Tip: make sure to clean each glass panel while you have the door apart. Use a razor blade for those stubborn burnt on stains.
Please call KitchenAid/Whirlpool directly and ask to speak to the 'executive management team'
I had this fault for the second time and this time I spoke to the Exec Management team who said they were unaware of this as a common fault. My stove was ‘fixed’ free of charge – the fuse was replaced, again.
Please everyone who has had or is having this problem call again – this problem needs to be fixed, replacing the fuse each time or not using the self clean function is NOT a fix.
An error code "F5 E1" means "door latch not operating". In such situation I would recomend to replace the oven lock assy (part # 9782611 ) which is located on the back panel.If you are going to do it yourself - DO NOT forget to unplug the power cord first. About service manual - try to call Kitchen Aid directly.
