KitchenAid slide in range/stove model KESC307 HWH6 DOOR LOCK PROBLEM

We purchase this unit in 2002.
After the cleaning function, a soliniod buz occurs and the door mechanism locks the door. We called the repair service, just after the warranty, who replaced the soliniod.

The message on the panel reads "F5-E7". I have since been able to open the door by sliding a butter knife through the front grate and pry up the door locking arm. In the past this has essentially reset the stove, and if function normally, except cleaning, afterwards.

It has happened again.. February 8, 2008. I pried the door locking arm up and was able to open the door. The power is now turned off and after this message I will turn it back on.

Regarding "Superglides" message earlier, has Kitchenaid corrected this mis-engineered part or assembly?

SOURCE: self clean inoperative

Dear Superglide, 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.

unplug the oven for a few hrs, need a brand and/or model number to look up diag. codes

SOURCE: hey,

I had this problem once and I just reached through the vent on the front with a knife and turned the locking mechanism. I eventually had to have the range repaired for self-cleaning mode, but this should at least let you get the door open!

The thermal switch was bad. I removed the sheet metal back from the oven and there is a small round part with two wires one on each side. You replace it and bingo the door will open and display will come back on. If you do not have he part you can touch the two wire together and the stove will unlock.

As most electronic devices go you can just unplug it first for about a few mins then plug it back in.

If there is power to the unit (lights turn on) I would check the fuses and switches especially the one for door lock mechanism if you noticed a glitch. But a lot of times if you experiences problems after running a self-cleaning function, including locked door issue, the solution could be as simple as resetting a switch and no actual replacement parts needed. It all depends. If you are in Los Angeles, we could send a Viking repairman the same day you call us. : Viking Appliance Repair

My display window on my washer reads F and then dL.What does this mean?What do I do?


HI. That code is in reference to the door locking mechanism. It is experiencing difficulties at this time. A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be locked. It will try to lock it 6 times before displaying the error.

The necessary actions are to Check the wire harness connections to the Door Lock/Switch Assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU). This can be achieved by removing the top and front panel. The door assembly must be removed as well. Once you have exposed the door locking mechanism and its respective connections to the CCU, kindly, inspect each connections for a loose fit. The CCU will be located on the top of the unit, just to the rear or side of the interface panel. Check the linking connections that run to the door locking mechanism for a loose fit, as well. If all connections check out ok,simply, replace the door locking mechanism(switch assembly). This will correct the issue.

I have included a service manual for this unit. This duet service manual will guide you through the necessary disassembling process, as well as, the proper testing procedures for the door locking mechanism and CCU. The common fault here in your case will be a damaged door locking switch assembly, and replacing it will solve the problem. Click here to access your service manual.

Component accessing procedures will begin on page 4-1. The door switch assembly removal procedure will start on page 4-3. it is part of the door removal section. Follow it carefully to extract the assembly. Componet checks start on page 5-2. You can test the CCU door lock solenoids for proper ohms by referring to the ohm chart on page5-3. The CCU pin connector location is labeled on the top of page 5-1 under door lock solenoids. Due to the fact that there is a very small possibility that the CCU may be damaged, you can test the pins to verify that the CCU is indeed functioning with a good set of door lock/unlock solenoids. This will, essentially, isolate the door lock switch assembly as the lone culprit.


  • Be sure to unplug the unit before attempting this repair and use caution.
