My maytag range model mer5765ras lock is stuck can not operate anything except stove top We turned off electricity it released but as soon as I shut the door it locked Thank

On something like this I recommend setting the control up into a self-cleaning mode. Let the self cleaning cycle run for about 5 minutes then press stop/cancel. This should cause the lock motor to reset the lock switches.

My oven door will not shut, i have a code of F9 showing

it MAY be your oven door lock is jammed..
I found this information for you:
  • Wait at least one hour after the oven has completed a self clean cycle to attempt to open the oven door, as the oven remains locked until the interior temperature has cooled sufficiently.

  • 2

    Press "Cancel" and wait a few minutes if the oven is cool and wait until at least one hour has elapsed since the completion of a self-clean cycle.

  • 3

    Open the oven door and check the door lock switch. Move the switch back and forth with your fingers to return the switch to the original position. Check for dirt or debris that may be causing the switch to stick or lock and clean as necessary.

  • 4

    Contact an authorized service technician if the problem is not resolved, as the door switch may need to be replaced.

  • Perhaps you can get some advice from Maytag

    Call the dealer from whom your appliance was purchased or call Maytag Appliances Sales Company, Maytag Customer Assistance at 1-800-688-9900

    Oven shut down in mid use and locked the door. Display said it was on self clean and then switched to error code F1. We have tried unplugging, cooling, cancelling and timing down the clean cycle. This...

    f1 error is generally a fault within the electronic control/clock assembly. i wouldnt want to dump the unit just yet.get the model number and look up the control probably $200 or less.

    How do you clean self-cleaning Maytag Gemini?

    If the unit is a self-cleaner, you should remove everything from the oven (including the racks as the self-clean mode will remove necessary lubrication from the racks if left inside). If the range has a slide lock on top of the oven door, move it from left to right to lock the door, then press the self-clean button. If it does not have a slide lock, it should have a magnetic lock which will engage when the self-clean function is activated. The oven will reach approx. 800 degrees for about 3 hours. When it cools, you should see a white powdery substance in the oven. Wipe this up and you are done.

    Self cleaning MAytag Gemini GAS oven

    A wonderful feature is that the ovens self-clean with the press of a few buttons. Only one oven can be programmed to self-clean at a time. Remove the oven racks. Turn off the oven light and close the door. Press the "Clean" button and then press "Auto Set" to automatically clean the oven for 3 hours. Press the "Auto Set" pad again to set the oven for a 4-hour clean cycle, or press the button one more time for a 2-hour cleaning. The oven locks when in cleaning mode. When the oven is finished cleaning, the word "Cleaned" will be displayed on the control panel, and the oven will remain locked until the oven has cooled, which takes about an hour. To cancel the self-clean cycle, just press the "Cancel" button. Simple!
