After a power outage, which is common during the winter here in Maine, when the power comes back on, "F9" appears on the display screen and a message saying to contact a technician or call 800 ...... A beeping sound starts and only stops when the stove is unplugged. We wait a while, plug the stove back in reset the clock but eventually the beeping starts again. At some point a rythmic clicking sounds begins as if the stove is going through some sort of recalibration. But then the beeping starts again. During most of this time the surface burners will work but the oven won't. Eventually, after hours have passed, the stove works fine. But it seems as though something is not right for this "problem" to occur in the first place. Any thoughts?

This code will most often indicate that the appliance is wired incorrectly at the home electrical supply, or at the hard wire connection.
If your oven was installed recently (within approximately 3 months), contact a qualified electrician to verify the electrical supply.
During a power outage, if there was an unexpected amount of power supply line "noise" that the control detected as an incorrect voltage amount, the control could display the F9, F9 E0 or PF Error Code. Also, if any keys were pressed before the 10 second delay interval on power up, this could cause the F9, F9 E0 or PF to appear.
Power unit down by turning off the circuit breaker(s) for one (1) minute.
Power unit up by turning on the circuit breaker(s).
Monitor the oven for one (1) minute to ensure the error code does not display again.
Verify oven operation.

The most common cause of a F9 error code is a problem with the door latch circuit. There could be a pinched wire for the circuit causing a short or the door latch motor is defective. Sometimes a problem with the ERC can cause this error to appear. Possible problems can very slightly from manufacturer for this error code but almost all use the F9 error code for the oven door lock.
HI. During the power outage, there may have been a power surge. This has shorted your main control board. This E-10 is indicating that this is the issue. This code represents a failed control board. It must be replaced, in this case. Once replaced, the unit will return to its normal operating status.
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.

Here's what F9 code means:
1. Door lock safety circuit on ERC sensed Replace the door latch assembly
2. Door Lock Warning Check door lock circuit or Replace Clock
Try pressing and holding the door latch to unlock position and then press cancel for a few seconds. The latch should return to its original position.
