Try unplugging the oven from the electrical power. May release the lock, which is held in place by a tiny micro switch. If not and while the electric is still off or the oven is unplugged, use a bright light flashlight to look through the slot where the lock is in the oven, not in the door.

You may be able to use a thin blade screwdriver to move the lock to the release position. Check the angle of the lever. A slightly bent lever handle also can cause this type of condition.

If all else fails, remove the access panel on the front of the oven to access the locking device and release it. May have to disconnect the wires to the lock which will allow door to function but not during any self cleaning modes.

I tried a different method. I was able to get the door open after the F9 code. But it would not turn off once I closed the door again.
Open the door all the way. Then take a long shoe string and wrap it around the lock latch and pulling it into the open position. This should be all the way to the left.
Continuing to keep the latch to the left with the shoe string, close the door. The string should be long enough for you to close the door while holding onto the shoestring keeping the latch to the left.
Now press the cancel/clear button several times. Or press and hold the clear button. After a few seconds I heard a "click" and the lock latch will stay in place. Open the door to confirm and the F9 code should go away!!

I'm having the same problem as #2 above with the check probe message. Any Solution?

Posted on Jun 29, 2008

I moved the oven out to replace tile and am now getting constant "check probe" message and the oven won't operate. Have tried unplugging/replugging. Clock can be set but screen always reverts to beep with "check probe." Have pressed the probe button and "cancel" and also plugged the probe in and removed it but again, back to the beep and same message.

I have code f9 will not go away and let oven work

I appreciate your inquiry, friend!

Based off the information you have provided your range is displaying an "F9" error code. "F9" typically means that your wall oven has detected an issue with the runaway temperature (overheating).

Sometimes resetting your appliance can correct this issue but in the case that it does not and you still receive that error code I would recommend having a professional come out to properly diagnose and repair. At that time you could be having an issue within RTD (Resistance Temperature Detector) sensor probe or the EOC (Electronic Oven Control) having a professional come out would reduce the cost of unnecessary parts. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Jennair oven 8114 p472-60 or p458-60 f9 error code

The F9 error code for this model number Jenn-air range indicates a door lock issue. The control sees it as locked, unlocked, or both at the same time.

The technical manual instructs us to check the wiring to and from the door lock mechanism and if no issues are found replace the motorized door lock.

Frigidaire Rang cfef357cb2 error code F9

Hello Youngmi Park - Typically error code F9 indicates that the range has experienced maximum oven door unlock attempts, open time, or lock attempts exceeded. Try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and this will usually clear most false error codes. If it proves to be ineffective, the range may possibly have an issue with the motor door latch, lock motor assembly, door light switch, or EOC. Contact a professional to move forward accurately for a properly diagnose.

I stared to self clean by Frigidaire FEF355ASE oven. I got the beeping and the F1 note. I pressed clear and then I got beeping and F9. I pressed clear and got F9 again. I tried clearing it again and it...

The F9 code indicates there is a problem with the door lock.

Try disconnecting the power to the range for 10 seconds and reconnecting. Open the oven door and hold the door switch plunger in while you try these things. Put the control into clean for 5 minutes then cancel clean. You must hold the door switch plunger in for the 5 minutes.

Try canceling the clean cycle without putting the control into clean.

I get failure code F9-3

What a scam by service personnel.
-Simply press "Stop/Clear", then gently push the door handle until "Lock" appears on the screen. Press "Stop/Clear" again and the door unlocks itself!
