Second repair on F9-1 Error Code

A little over 90 days ago we found when we started the cleaning cycle on our vintage 2005 range, it would abort after a minute or two and show code F9-1, call for service. The local authorized Jenn-Air repair service replaced a clock and sensor - the clock was covered under warranty but we paid for the sensor ($25) and labor ($100). For various reasons we never got around to actually cleaning the oven until now, and found the same problem. The repair guy says the parts order place now wants him to order a door latch assembly instead ($50 - not covered under warranty) , so we'll have a bill for another 150 bucks. This doesn't seem right. I thought I saw something about a door latch being the proper fix for this oven when I first jumped on the Internet with the error code late last year. Should we have to pay if someone got the wrong fix for this range? Just really seems wrong and unfair to me. And what if THAT doesn't fix it? Starting to feel like a guinea pig. Seems someone should take responsibility for the first fix not working. Any/all advice appreciated!!!

    Don't know what the mentioned "reset procedure" is (though would like to know - where can I find that, please?), but this story got worse before it got better. We paid for the door latch assembly and installation, plus the tech supposedly replaced the control board again, and the self-clean STILL didn't work; now we got crazy messages telling us to remove the probe (which was not in place). The tech said the mfr. wanted us to replace the probe well (yet MORE money), and we got suspicious and complained to Jenn-Air. Long story short, after several no-charge factory visits, turns out that at some point the local service guy had failed to properly tuck in some wiring and it literally burned and fused. All is well now, but we'll never be calling that local guy again. He was incompetent, not a diagnostician but just a parts replacer, and was ready to keep charging us for replacing parts for as long as we were willing to pay, rather than getting to the bottom of things and standing behind his own work. Terrible experience, but we are grateful to the mfr. for finally stepping in and taking care of us. We were ready to throw the Jenn-Air out the window though we have been loyal to the brand for over 20 years.

F5e1 error code


The F5 E1 error message indicates the latch motor was unable to lock the door. When the self clean cycle is started, the control board will turn on the latch motor which is mounted on the rear of this range. The motor is connected to a cam that transfers the motors motion to a rod that runs under the cooktop. This rod connects to the actual latch mounted behind the oven door. The control board will then monitor a position switch that is actuated by the latch motor cam. As the motor rotates, the latch will engage the door locking it in place just as the cam contacts the switch button. When the switch contacts close, the control turns the latch motor off and starts the cleaning cycle.

When diagnosing this failure, the error code gives us a good starting point to begin our trouble shooting. I removed the rear panel and started a clean cycle. Once the start button was pressed, the latch motor began to rotate, but didn't stop at the locked position. It continued to rotate three times and then displayed the error. I unplugged the range from the wall and using my meter, did a continuity check of the latch position switch (the one on the right). The switch was reading as an open circuit in standby and when I actuated the switch which tells me the switch has failed. The second switch on the latch assembly, by the way, is to turn the oven light off during the self cleaning cycle to protect the bulb. That way, if you leave the light switch on the control panel turned to the on position, that second switch will turn it back off. Good to know if you can't figure out why the oven light won't turn on.

With the failure down to the latch assembly, I checked the range parts to see if the switch came as a separate piece, but it looks like it's an entire assembly, and not individual parts. I removed the old latch after removing the two screws and six wires, then installed the new latchshow?id=y6f3ez5blva&bids=92089.709229668&type=10&subid=. Once all the wires were back connected to the proper terminals, I put the rear panel back on and plugged the range back into the outlet. Started a self clean cycle, but this time I heard the motor make one revolution and stop. The cycle started for the customer and a few hours later, I am sure the oven was nice and clean.

What is the f7 fault code


I have the double wall ovens. The lower oven read door lock & flashed F7. Check to make sure the lock is not sticking out a bit, it is on the left side of the oven. I'm not sure if this is what the f7 fault code is, but it worked for me :)

Trouble Code 3255


Hi,

Thanks for using Fixya!

1. Cycle the ignition key ON-OFF-ON-OFF-ON within 5 seconds. To cycle the ignition key ON means to turn it only as far as it takes to get the radio to come on. It does not mean to turn the engine on.

2. Count the number of times the "check engine" lamp on the instrument panel flashes on and off. The number of flashes represents the code. There is a slight pause between the flashes representing the first and second digits of the code. Longer pauses separate individual codes. For example, flash-flash-flash [pause] flash-flash represents the code 32.

A code of "55" represents end of error codes. If this is all you get then no error codes are stored in the computer. This is the normal condition for a neon.
CODE Description of Trouble Code
11 Timing belt skipped 1 tooth or more from initial learned value, Intermittent loss of either camshaft or crankshaft position sensor, No crank reference signal detected during engine cranking
12 Direct battery input to PCM was disconnected within the last 50 key-on cycles
13 No change in MAP from start to run
14 MAP sensor voltage too low
15 No vehicle speed sensor signal
17 Closed loop temp not reached or engine cold too long
21 02s sensor problem (oxygen sensor), upstream or down stream
22 Engine coolant temp sensor out of range
23 Intake air temp sensor out of range
24 Throttle Position sensor out of range
25 Idle air control motor circuits, target idle not reached (+/- 200),vacuum leak found
27 Injector control circuit
31 Evap purge flow monitor failure or evap solenoid circuit
32 EGR system failure
33 A/C clutch relay circuit
34 Speed control Solenoid circuits
35 Rad Fan control relay circuit
37 Torque converter clutch solenoid CKT or park/neutral switch failure
41 Generator field not switching properly
42 Fuel pump relay control ckt, Auto shutdown relay control ckt, No ASD relay output voltage at PCM, Fuel level sending unit volts out of range, Fuel level unit No change over miles
43 Multiple/ single cylinder misfire
44 Battery temp sensor volts out of range
46 Charging system voltage too low
51 Fuel system lean
52 Fuel system rich
53 Internal control failure
54 No Cam signal at PCM
55 End of error messages (If you get this only, no errors were found)
62 PCM failure SRI mile not stored
63 PCM Failure EEPROM write denied
64 Catalytic Converter Efficiency Failure
65 Power steering switch failure

So in your case, you are getting error 3255 right? so you are getting error 32 EGR system failure and 55 which is no other error found.

I hope you get this sorted out.
Have a great day sir.

I think it's the ignitor.   Ours has been doing a very slow lighting for quite a while.  I found if I did a cleaning cycle it seems to work a little better... otherwise a new ignitor  ( Ours is gas )...  now it is flashing the probe and bake lights alternately and will not turn the oven on at all....  not so impressed at this point.....
