Make sure the oven is off and cool (turn off the circuit breaker). Wear a leather glove to protect your hand. Depending on your model, there may be a glass shield held by a metal holder over the lamp. In the case of a unit with this holder, press on one side to release the shield and remove it. Remove the bulb by turning it counter-clockwise. Replace with a 40 W appliance bulb (turn clockwise). Replace the glass shield and the holder. (On some oven models, the shield will twist on and off like a bulb.)
Hard wiring is O.K. and really better because you don't have to fool with the plug and the loss of or poor connection there. You can just turn the power off at the breaker. Without knowing what the F9 error code is, you may have a problem with the board inside the control panel. To get the door open, try to push and hold door closed at the same time. This may loosen the tension on the closer and allow it to open. Pull the lever to open it. If not, try to moderately tap on the door where it latches and it may open then. Next, slide a thin screwdriver into the latch and free it up there. Once the door opens, I believe your oven will work. The oven believes it is in the self clean mode. When you get the door open, turn on the oven with the door open and it should heat. If it does not, check the wiring in the back and you may find that one of the wires has burned off the control switch for the oven. I know this sounds like a lot, but it should save you a tech call and a couple of hundred dollars. Hope this helps.
Try pushing and holding the door shut. Then moderately tap on the door where the latch is and it may come loose. Usually it is mechanical and not electrical here. Could also be if you have a self cleaner on it, that it is reading that you are cleaning the oven. If the first thing does not work, then turn off your breaker for about 15 seconds and then back on. Sometimes it may reset itself and put it back in working order.
