F5 error message most often indicates a failed electronic control (although it can sometimes be caused by a failed oven temperature sensor. The sensor should be checked before replacing the control. It should read about 1100 ohms when at room temperature.

Well after reading just about every post about the Domectic Convection F-5, I paniced. I just bought this motor home last month from Campers World. (Yeah I know) (they said they did a perfect check) (yeah I know now). Anyway, my dad taught me the Ford Philco TV set repair method. I coul dnot hit the micorwave and knock some sense back into her, but I did one better. After2 days of trying to figure out the F-5 issue, I read every post, nothing, then I slammed the door. Whamo, it works perfect. I mean no more F-5 for three days now. So if your DOMECTIC Convection is giving you fits, SLAM TO DOOR. its broke anyway. Keep me posted. Maybe I was lucky. My dad said a good wack will always fix anything. Happy Slamming.

Model# 66568601891 (Whirlpool) Error code F5. Can't find solutions in the forums for this code for microwaves but yes for others appliances with different meanings. I unplugged appliance for 24 hrs and...


F5 may be a transient problem (grease, impending failure) involving the door switches or *possibly* a sensor error.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

It should also have the fault / error codes.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.
