    After self-cleaning, E1 F5 shows and the door will not unlock on my Kenmore 665.95179300

  • denisenelson Feb 27, 2009

    Out of the blue my oven beeped and the E1 F5 came up on the display followed by the E0 F3. The fan turned on and would not shut off. I finally turned the circuit breaker off to stop it. What is this all about?

SOURCE: tried to selfclean my NEW oven but get error message F5E1

Reading all the questions and responses - I had the same problem (would press "self clean", it would run for less then a minute then give the error message), so once I saw the code was E5F1 and what it meant (thanks for whoever posted that), I just pressed on the door for the first minute of the cycle, and self-cleaning then worked. Go figure :)

SOURCE: Self Cleaning Oven beeping and reading FSEO

Go in the back of the oven and there should be a tech sheet in a plastic bag. It will tell you what that code means. I assume it's a problem with the lock and switch mechanism. See what the code says it is

Trying to self clean oven, error code F5 E1 alarm set off in the first few minutes of the cleaning cycle


F5
- E1 Self clean latch will not
lock

1.
If door latched:


  1. Disconnect power from unit.
  2. Check wires and connectors from control to door switch, then from door
    switch to control. If no damage to wires and all connectors okay, proceed to
    step C.
  3. Replace door switch.
  4. Re-apply power.
  5. Press and hold any key down for 1 minute to clear F5 failure code from
    memory. F2 will appear. Press CANCEL and observe for 1 minute to ensure
    operation is correct.

2. If door not latched:


  1. Disconnect power from unit.
  2. Check wires and connectors from control to latch switch, then from latch
    switch to control. If no damage to wires and all connectors okay, proceed to
    step C.
  3. Repeat steps A and B for door switch.

3. Measure door switch (door open = switch open small low voltage terminals).
Replace switch if defective.
4. Measure latch switch (unlatch = switch open,
CAUTION - oven light contacts are closed). Replace switch if defective.
5. If
corrections are made in any step, reconnect power to control. Press and hold any
key for 1 minute to clear R failure code from memory. F2 will appear. Press
CANCEL and observe for 1 minute to ensure operation is correct.
6. If failure
remains, disconnect power and replace control.

Note:
Applies to all F5-E... codes.

Oven door is locked and won't open


Sorry to hear the "self clean" Gremlins are at it again. Several things have happened, none good. During the cycle at full power for several hours, a circuit on the control board has failed. Various errors are now keeping functions from occurring normally, although sometimes door switches fail causing similar anomalies. At any rate 'self clean' eventually becomes 'self-destruct'. Boards run 150-300$ . Hope info helps- Thanks-ED

My Whirlpool Accubake super capacity 465 self-cleaning oven does not work. When started E1 -F5- appears on screen. Model# RF 386 PXGO. Serial# RJ0525903.


The E1- F5 error is a door lock error.

The control (TIMER) has likely failed in this instance - BUT...

Sometimes when you disconnect power to a range and reconnect it the electronic range control gets confused.
You should disconnect power again for 15 seconds and reconnect and see if that helps.

If it doesn't cure the E1- F5 error hold the bake button in until E0- F2 appears in the display.
This is the error for a stuck button on the keypad and is the way to clear the memory of the electronic range control.

Sometimes these work, but if the control has failed it won't make any difference.

Whilrpool Self Cleaning Range Door won't unlock


try this 1. Verify error code by pressing and holding CANCEL/OFF key for 5 seconds.
Momentarily (less than 5 sec.) press CANCEL key again to remove error code
display.
2. Press and hold any key for 1 minute until F2 E0 code is displayed.
3. Cancel F2 E0 error code.
4. Program and start the clean mode. Observe to see if door locks. If it does not,
inspect the locking mechanism from the solenoid to the latch pawl and door to
find the cause of the problem. If the door is not locking, then 1 minute from the
start of clean, the F5 E1 code will again be displayed. Steps 1 through 3 will
have to be repeated before another clean can be started.
5. Once any mechanical problems with the latch mechanism have been corrected,
program and start a clean cycle (after, if necessary, clearing F5 E1 error code)
to ensure proper operation of the door lock. Immediately cancel the clean mode to observe proper operation of door unlock
