Whirlpool 465 ceramic stovetop - Locks up in self-clean mode

Hi there. I was broiling steaks for dinner tonight and my oven suddenly locked and went into clean mode on the cool setting. I can't get it open. I'm afraid that it's going to cause a fire with the high cleaning temps and food in the oven. I have tried turning off the circuit breaker to the oven, but it's still locked. When I turn the breaker back on, it's still in clean mode. Please help. I'd like to eat dinner but I'd really like NOT to burn the house down tonight. Thanks much. :-) Mac@1214.biz

Try this to get the oven door open. Turn off the power, take a coat hanger and bent at 90 degree angle about 2 inches long. Turn the wire side ways along the top of the door, 2 inches to the right of center, turn your wire so the bent piece is down. Now pull out on the door and move the wire to the left. This should unlock your door so you can get to dinner. What may have happened is that the broil got above 500 degrees at the oven sensor and locked the door for safety. That does happen

Whirlpool super capacity 465


Seems the thermostat is malfunctioning...thus when baking at 500..thats quite high...it keeps getting hotter past that point to where the oven thinks its in self cleaning mode. Also seems like the problem because when it cools down your allowed to use it again. There is no way to test it with an ohmmeter. Just remove and replace.

OVEN TURNING OFF BY ITSELF. I THINK THE CODE ON IT IS SAYING F2


Hi!
The F2 code means Oven Temperature Too High. When this code is present do the following:
1. Look for welded relay contacts on bake or broil relays. If this happens, replace oven control (also called clock or ERC).

2. For SELF CLEAN models: check door lock operation.
3. 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.

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

A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

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.

Whirlpool self cleaning oven, Super capacity 465, door will not close


I had the same FSE error which the whirpool web site advises that you will need to schedule a service appt to fix. Instead I leaded against the door while initiating the cleaning cycle and the door locks and oven cleans fine.
