Whirlpool Electric Range Model # RF369LXPB. Self cleaning function does not work. A code displays after self cleaning function has been on for about 3 minutes. The code is F5EO. What does this mean?


Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.It means the door lock and door switch dont agree. Check the door switch does the oven light go on and off? does the door lock? It is either the door lock or oven door switch that controls the light.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

Can not open the door of the self- cleaning electric Range after cleaning operation


Unplug the unit or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Plug the unit back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and gently try moving the door lock lever (is so equipped) or opening the door.
or
Set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for 15 minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever (is so equipped) or opening the door.
If these procedures fail to correct the condition, the lock must usually be accessed and moved manually to open the door.
Some model ovens require the oven door to be manually unlatched before the controls are returned to the OFF position or else the door may not be able to be unlocked. Check the owner's manual for proper operating procedures

How do I unlock the oven door?


If the lock is engaged, is the oven in a self cleaning cycle? If so, cycle power to the oven, that should cancel the self cleaning cycle.

Reply back if that worked or not and I'll try to help you further.

Unlocking Oven controls


According to the manufacturer's website you should only need to Press and hold the "Lock" key for 5 seconds. A single tone will sound and the "Loc" will disappear off the display.

This is the link to Whilpool's website and to the manual.
