I had FSE1 as my error. Door would not lock. I tried it again, this time PRESSING ******* the door where the lock is. IT LOCKED! WHOOT!

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 :)

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

Hello friend, thank you for your inquiry!
I understand that your door is locked and you have error "F5E1" showing on your range. I would perform a reset on your appliance which can be done by flipping the household circuit breaker off for roughly ten minutes. If that does not correct the issue and you continue to receive the error "F5E1" I would contact a professional to come out and repair your appliance because it could be an issue within your UIB (user interface board) or main control panel. Hopefully this helps. -Matt
