Question about KitchenAid KGST300 Gas Kitchen Range

Open Question

Ran the self clean mode and even after cooling for about 12 hours the door locked light stays on. The display shows code F5 E7 and the message "door locked". I hit cancel to reset, unplugged the unit and plugged it back, and still no change. There is a clicking sound that sounds like it is coming from the display every 10 seconds or so. The to range works fine. Is this something a homeowner can repair?

SOURCE: Door will not unlock after self clean.

It's probably the timer motor which is stuck. unplug the range!! I recently had the same problem with my whirlpool (hereinafter known as **** inc.) range. Self cleaned the oven and then the door wouldn't open. Googled up similar problems and generally found out that ****inc. had this problem on both gas and electric ranges and it costs an arm and a leg for a new board plus labor. Found out how to manually open door with coat hanger but of course still had problem with same error messages; also the oven, clock, etc wouldn't function. Took the cover off the back of the stove. UNPLUG THE STOVE On the left rear facing the back of the range he found the timer motor had stopped.He unplugged input(230 volt power) leading to the stove, then unplugged and insulated the wiring to the timer motor and the microswitch on top of it ( 4 wires). Then he took the long steel wire off of it and unlatched the oven door. Told me that this probably had something to do with the timer motor on the self cleaning cycle and that it was stuck Said this whole thing could probably be fixed with a bit of WD40. Said probably nothing wrong with board but it sure must be a moneymaker for **** inc. The service techs probably clean the timer motor, say they changed the $300 board, and go on their way. Plugged stove back up and voila! Everything worked except self cleaning function. Hope this helps someone. caution!!!! Do NOT use the self cleaning function unless you fix the timer motor. Replace it or clean it.

As most electronic devices go you can just unplug it first for about a few mins then plug it back in.

My oven is locked. Display shows F5:E7 How do I unlock it?


Vera, Code F5 E7 your latch assembly has failed. Turn oven breaker off to the unit for 5 min. to see if it will reset. If not, then try to set the self clean, wait 1 min. and cancel it to see if that will reset the door latch. If it does not reset the door lock, then you will have to manually open the door and replace the door latch assembly. It's not easy task to unlock the door. You'll need to use a coat hanger and pull the latch assembly from (right - left) by slipping it down between the door and the oven top. Force the latch over to the left and open the door, then you will have access to remove latch.

Self cleaning oven


Pheo,
Turn Breaker/Fuse for the stove, your electrical panel, “OFF” and then “ON”, wait 20 - 30 seconds and the door should unlock.
It may be that the temp sensor is going out and you'll need to have that looked at soon.

Oven door locked - display shows F5:E7


Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
These codes normally show up during the cleaning cycle this is due to the extreem heat used during the self clean operation
Now to fix this is not too hard providing the sensor for the temperature has not been damaged due to the heat
Unplug the oven and leave it sit for 1 hour and do not touch there is a internal reset feature on these ovens that take 1 hour to reset once the hour is up plug in the oven and you may hear a audiable click sound or a buzz sound if so great then all you have to do is to press the cancel or off button then after 5 min attempt to unlock the door
if it does unlock and one of these error codes are still showing this means the the controle panel has suffered some damage and needs to be replace
I have seen brand new ovens have the controle panel fail after the first self clean operation because the parts inside of it fail due to the extreem heat ok?
Hope this helps
Best regards Michael

Error code F5:E7 Can not get the oven door unlocked or reset this code. What do we do?


Beginner on forumn, don't have any manual in front of me on f5:e7. Sounds like a conventional oven problem, oven door locking. If in fact is some form of conventional heat oven (convection?), I had similar problem with a GE range, it flashed some kind of code seams like which I later interpreted by using owner's manual that explained codes. In my case it was in "cleaning mode" and you can't turn that off unless you unplug or turn breaker off, that puts it back to default mode with nothing running. I simply tried out the self cleaning feature, from there the oven went to full on heat and oven door locked unexpectedly. I learned stays locked till cycle finishes and oven cools, which is some time after the oven automatically switches off, said that it can be a couple of hours before you hear a...click, and now door opens (note to self, don't ever do that again).

By the way the door lock error will stay there until the oven cools. Once it has cooled it will go away. the reason is in a self clean the oven is supposed to get very hot to clean. The door lock is for your protection. once it has cooled down enough the door lock will go away.

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
