We just moved into a home with an older model Whirlpool range with a self cleaning oven. When we press the button for self cleaning we get a E1-F5 code. The previous owner did not leave a manual. Can you help. Model RF386PXE Q orD?

Hi, The E1-F5 code means that there is a problem with the door locking circuit.
Try moving the door lock if access is easy. - then turn off at the wall for 5 minutes to reset.

There could be a faulty connection with the interlock switch or the drive motor. With the power off, Check the switch operation first. It could just be a faulty contact.
To access it, you have to rise the top to access the latch if the motor is bad. There are screws along the front edge when you open the door. These need to come out to lift the top. Take care not to lift too high as you may crack the top.

I have a electric whirlpool self cleaning oven, after the cleaning process the door is still locked. It's beeping and error message E1 F5


Assuming the door is still locked after cooling, then either the door switch is bad or the wiring from the control panel to the door switch has a problem. First disconnect the power from the oven. Then check the wiring and connectors (from the control to the switch and back). If those are fine, you need to replace the door switch. After replacing the switch or fixing any bad wiring/connections, reconnect the oven to power. Press and hold any key on the panel for at least one minute to clear the error. You should see F2 on the LCD panel. Press Cancel to clear the error then check to see if any new error (or the old one) message occurs. (Usually a new error message will come up within a minute.)

Which model Whirlpool oven do you have? If you add a comment with the model number, I may be able to provide a parts list and diagram of the unit.

I hope this helps.

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...

I can not find my manual and I'm trying to clean my oven with the self cleaner. This is an accubake. I press self clean button and hit start. After a few seconds E1-F5 comes up. Do u have a sheet on...


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.

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.
