Oven light on display says door and now wont heat


The oven will not turn on the heat because it thinks the door is still open. It thinks the door is open because it has a sensor that gets pressed by the door when it closes (look around edges of oven that get covered when door closes) this sensor is wet, dirty or broken so when you close the door the sensor still says its open. Did you clean around the door with a wet cleaning fluid?

Bosch oven won't pre-heat/heat with door closed


Some oven has a door sensor, which prevents heating when door is open, evidently this is faulty, you need a service manual to identify and replace the part, If I find something I will post here.

My oven is an AEG. The oven in your video is a Smeg. I need to remove the door to clean the oven and then replace it.


Open the door to the first stop, or what is called the "vent" location. This will be about 3 inches open. Lift up on the door and pull up and out. Set the door to the side and keep the arms on the bottom in the same position, do not let them close. Clean the door, when done and set the door back in the slots the same, open the door all the way, and close it. Done. Hope this helps Fix Ya up.

I just bought a new home and find the oven door will not close properly. It stays open about an inch with lots of heat escaping. Any ideas?


Most oven doors are equipped with spring closures as part of the hinge assembly, and are designed with a "detent" feature so that the door can be removed for cleaning without requiring tools. Usually, with the door wide open, you lift the hinged edge of the door straight up, and wiggle it straight out at the same time. When you reinstall the door, it is important that both hinges "seat" equally, and that one or the other hasn't tripped out of the detent positiion. You may have to experiment wit it several times, and a second pair of hands may be helpful. You may also find that maybe a freind will know the trick, my wife can pop the door out and back in in a flash! Goodluck Rob.

need to know what model and brand you have.
most newer ovens only need you to remove the racks, then push the button for self clean, push the button to allow about a 3 hour clean cycle and it should then go into a lock the door mode. after the time is up it will need to cool down and then you should be able to open the latch and wipe out any burnt residues.

Have a maytag super capacity plus oven i tried cleaning the oven now the door will not open and it shows f9 on the front


Had the same problem. How I fixed it, was by using a very thin, and I mean really thin, flat tip screw driver and a flash light. Unplug the stove. Use the flash light to look at the very top of the oven door. You should see in the air vent slats a silver hook. Use the screw driver to go through the vent slats and push the lock open. Now, you should be able to open your door. But we arent done yet. With the door open, plug the stove back in. Close the door and wait for the F9 to flash. Now open your door, and on the right side you should see a tiny peg sticking out on the open oven. Its for the light to come on when the oven door is open and also to let the oven know the door is ajar. Push it in and wait. The door latch circuit should reset like normal, and you will see the latch move back into its normal open position. Which resets the F9 error and allows you once again to use your oven like normal.

Interior oven light won't shut off.


Hi, i would check the pressure switch and its connection as well. either the switch is malfunctioning or the wires and connectors are corroded. simply replacing the wires or switch will fix this issue. the switch is usually located on the rim of the inside of the oven door. it will make contact with the oven door and as the oven door closes, the pressure switch is depressed inwards, thus, opening the circuit and cutting power to the light.

Please rate and god bless:)

Oven door will not close because the door lock is on and flashing, also the oven light won't go off. how do I fix the door lock flashing so I can close the oven door completly?


is not actuallly physically closing??? perhaps the lock/ latch has partially engaged prevetning door from closing, and with the door oopen it cannot do anything for safety reasons. can you see a door /light switch thtyou can depress by hand??? if so push and hold it in the light should go out, and at this point continue to hold in switch and try starting a self clean cycle ( dont worry it wont actually start cleaning right away)it then should activet the latch assy to fully engage and suppoedly lock door, still depressing the button then press thecancel button and the latch should return to the normal resting position and you can close the door
