The only real thing you can try is to unplug the unit or turn breaker off for about 30mins too see if it resets the board. The E1 F5 is a door lock error so hopefully pulling power from it awhile will work.

Why won't the oven door lock to start the self cleaning? The door appears to be shut all the way. After hit start, this code appears E1 F5


According to the Whirlpool website, the self-cleaning latch may be interfering with the door, though this would be indicated by an "E0 F5" error code. If that's the case, Whirlpool recommends the following:
1) Press "Stop/Clear" to clear your display.
2) According to Whirlpool, there should be a door switch plunger in the upper right corner of the oven front. Press and hold this so that the door latch will unlock.
However, if it is indeed "E1 F5" (or any other number with those letters in the code), Whirlpool recommends calling an appliance technician.

I did the self clean on my oven, and now the oven door will not unlock (E1-F5-) pops up onto the oven screen.


Hi

Error E1 F5 means that the control has detected a problem with door latch switch. Switch off the power and unplug it from the mains. Check after 5-6 minutes whether the error has disappeared. If the error is still there then once again start the self clean cycle. Press the self-clean button to start the cycle. The panel becomes blank (---), then press the up arrow (^). The panel will appear 3:00 (indication for the duration of self-cleaning). The oven will lock on its own and start the self-cleaning. After self cleaning is done wait for 15-20 minutes and open the door. Try moving the latch manually to unlock it. hope this helps...

Kenmore 95024 Electric Range The self clean cycle Door stuck shu


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.

E1 and F5 are on digital read out instead of 500degrees and cleaning


The E1 and F5 is a code that the door latching system is creating a fault. YOu might be able to take apart the door latch mechanism, and recondition it.

After a power failure I am getting the code e1 f1 flashing on my display board and it will not go away.


q.gif Why is the display showing E"#"-F"#," for example, E1-F2?
Answer Is "PF" displayed on the control?
A temporary power failure has been detected. Press the Stop/Clear keypad to reset your control. You may need to reset your clock.
Is the display showing E0-F5?
The Self-Cleaning latch may be interfering with the oven door causing the Self-Cleaning cycle not to work. If the oven door is open and will not lock, press Stop/Clear to clear the display, press and hold the door switch plunger (located in the upper-right corner of the oven front), and the door latch will unlock. If the oven door is closed and locked, press Stop/Clear to clear the display; apply pressure to the upper-right corner of the oven door, and the door will unlock.
Is the display showing E"#"-F"#," for example, E1-F2?
You will need to schedule service.

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

Problem codes for self-cleaning ranges


My experience (Kenmore Ultra-bake Model 665-72002102) was that E1 F5 meant an error with the oven lock switch. In our case, the latch was partly stuck from food or other debris. Just moving the latch back and forth loosened the scale that was making it stick, and it worked again.
