F-9 means:Door lock safety circuit on ERC sensed Replace the door latch assembly
To solve this...Just press and hold the door latch to unlock position and then press cancel for a few seconds. The latch will return to its original position
This will probably fix it..but if doesnt work try this
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.

SOURCE: oven door locked.
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.

We tried resetting the circuit breaker several times and it wouldn't work. Amana told us to set it to bake and see what happened. When it clicked on in Bake mode, the F9 code disappeared and the door unlocked. Good luck.

SOURCE: oven door cannot unlock
I know this response is a bit dated, but I just had the same problem. I removed the back panel. There is a little motor that turns the locking mechanism. I removed that and there is a button on a sensor next to the motor. I turned off the power first, since 220 can kill. Then when everything was sorted out, i turned the power back on, hit the switch on the sensor and everything is back to normal. I also made sure that the lock in front was back at 12 o'clock (the L shaped piece at the top of the door, but on the stove),. It worked for us. Good luck.

I had the same problem. All I had to do was clean around the door lock. A small bit of burnt food or something had gotten into the hole around the lock and prevented it from moving all the way into position. Took a tooth pick and 30 seconds of probing to clean it out. Works fine now.
