Check if the lock lever is set or switch to clean when pressing on the clean button, make sure its all the way to the clean position.

    clean button should lit on when lock lever is positioned all the way to the right, securely close the door and that will do it.

Used self cleaning process on my oven yesterday and today the oven will not turn on, we keep getting message to unlock the oven door even though it is. What can we do?


The oven gets extremely hot during the self-cleaning mode... the door switch might have got stuck in locked position, or broken in locked position (to be replaced), let's hope it's just stuck...which you'll need to work the mechanical lock-unlock latching back and forth to hopefully unstick....and if that doesn't work just re-run self-cleaning process but this time let the oven cool completely before unlocking the door. Hope this helps.

FSE1 CODE just popped up on the stove and the latch started going back and forth and the interior light would go on and off. We weren't even using the stove or oven when this happened. What does


The F5 E1 error message indicates the latch motor was unable to lock the door. When the self clean cycle is started, the control board will turn on the latch motor which is mounted on the rear of this range. The motor is connected to a cam that transfers the motors motion to a rod that runs under the cook-top. Here is the part to order.

Lost Manual and would like instruction on how to set for self clean cycle?


Make sure you have everything out of the oven, including the oven racks.

1. Press SELF CLEAN.
2. Press the TEMP/TIME "+" or "-" arrow pads to enter the desired self-clean cycle.
3. Press START.
The oven door will automatically lock. The DOOR LOCKED and CLEAN indicator lights will be
displayed.
4. When the self-clean cycle is complete and the oven cools, the DOOR LOCKED and CLEAN
indicator lights will turn off.
5. When the oven is completely cooled, remove ash with a damp cloth.

Recommended times are 2 hours 30 minutes for light soil and 4 hours 30 minutes for heavy soil.

If your oven has a HI and LO self clean time, HI is 4 hours 30 minutes and LO is 3 hours 30 minutes.

It is also recommended that you remove anything plastic from the top of the stove during cleaning.

Whirlpool self clean GGP84803 door won't lock when initialized.It is clicking and diplays locked but I can still open door?


If the lock will not engage and keeps locking and unlocking then turn the power off, slide the stove out to obtain access to its back. Remove the 3 screws from back cover and you will see the locking motor and a switch with a lever that rests on the locking rod. This lever has lost its firmness and does not engage the switch to tell the motor it is locked. Simply take a pair of pliers and bend the lever down to put more load on the lever. Now when the rod turns it will fully engage the switch which will tell the motor that the door is locked. Test your setting to make sure you have it adjusted right and then re-install your cover and push your stove back into position and enjoy your day. Takes 10 to 15 minutes and is cheaper than calling a service tech. Remember to turn the power off when working on the back of the stove through testing and such. No need to get hurt.

My oven code is F5E1 , my oven was in self clean , now the door is locked


F5E1 is door latch assembly. One way that may work to unlock is to turn circuit breaker to stove off for few seconds then turn back on and door lock should activate and unlock. If not you are going to have to replace the door lock assembly.

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.
