F9 error message during self cleaning

We received this code when we first used the feature a couple of days ago. We looked at the manual and it told us to turn off the electricity for 30 seconds and then try again. Well, it about burnt up the cupboards. It appears the door warp letting out the supper heat and charred the cupboard both exterior facing cupboards and the inside of the cabinet next to the oven. When I got the F9 code the second time I checked around the door and found it had warped outward on the left side considerably and a little less on the right side. This seemed to be at maximum heat at the about 2 hours in the 3 hour cycle. The oven is about two years old, rarely used and this is the first time we have cleaned it. Anyone know what the issue is? Thanks Dennis

Dennis the F9 indicates the door lock switch has not positioned correctly. By what you are describing it sounds like the lock mechanism did not pull the door in tight for the cleaning resulting in the code. It's possible it could be a pinched wire on the locking mech. What needs to be done here is that someone has to examine the door lock mechanism to insure it's operating correctly. The door should be pulled tight and the switch sould be closed on the cam.

After self cleaning my LG LRE 3023ST, the "heating Error F9" code appears and I cannot use any oven feature

You need to replace the door latch mechanism. The switch on the mechanism failed. This usually happens after self-cleaning.

After is used the self-cleaning f9 error code

F9 code is a door latch error code. Either the latch motor or latch didn't get reset. Check the wiring to the latch motor and make sure everything is connected. Also try flipping the breaker and leaving it off for five or ten minutes, see if it might reset itself. If that doesn't work, you can have a latch motor gone bad, a harness issue, or possibly an electronic board that has shorted during the cleaning or operation programs.

I was using the Self Clean on the oven after a couple of hours I got an error message E1 and F5 - and the oven door is locked. I have no idea what that means or how to get the door open again. I tried...

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
Ok before i get into the error codes just a few words here about the self cleaning feature
This the feature that is the most harsh on these ovens due to the extremly high temperatures that is produced then this can and will cause serious problems if not done correctly
I know that people like this feature but i highly suggest that if you are going to use it please try to get the oven as clean as possiable before using this feature this helps the cleaning cycle tremendously ok?
Now for the error code
the e1 error dode is due to the door being locked so to repair this you need to unplug the oven and leave it sit for at least 1 hour this allows for the internal reset feature to reset the oven controle
after the hour is over plug it back in and in 1 to 5 min you may hear a audiable beep or click if so simply press the cancel button and attempt to open the door if so great you should be ok
Now for the bad one
The F5 code is due to the oven control sensing the extreem heat during self cleaning
and sensing that the controls are not controlling the temperature during cleaning which is a bad thing this can and will cause the control board to fail and once again due to the excessive heat
So hopefully once the oven has been unplugged for the hour and reset you should be allright but if not than you do have a bigger problem meaning that your controle board is shot ok?
Please keep me posted on how this is going so i can send you more information on this
Best regards Mike

MODEL NUMBER CPLEF398CCB. I tried to use the self clean and I received the f9 message. I am able to unlock door and you see the lock moving from lock to unlock. It unlocks every time i clear and restarts...

you either have a bad latch assy. or a bad computer board or a broken wire.this can be an expensive fix and the problem with self cleaning ovens is when you self clean them the temp. gets up to 1000 degrees and this damages the electronics in the machines,personally i would never use the self clean feature i clean mine by hand with easy off.people do this near the holidays and then the oven doesn't work parts have to be ordered and it could take up to 5 to 10 days or longer to get parts.don't ever self clean your oven when a holiday is coming up so this doesn't happen.if you can still use the oven just forget about the self clean if the error keeps you from cooking you'll have to find out what part is bad to fix it it sounds like your latch is working this code means the computer board thinks the door isn't locked if you want to change out the latch motor it's pretty easy,unplug the oven,pull it out and remove the back wall,the motor will be on the top right hand side looking at the unit from the back the part number is 316464301 this part is around 55 to 75 bucks depending where you get it now if it still does it the clock assy. is around 300 bucks part 316207600 so i would change out the latch assy. first if you need this repaired.hope this helps you out one more thing did you try unplugging the oven it could reset the computer board,leave it unplugged for 10 minutes and then plug it back in,don't try to self clean it,put it on bake and if the code doesn't come back great who cares about the self clean

F9 code on unit. Oven door locked

Yes, the error code F9 means that the door lock circuit is faulty and should be checked and replaced by a technician. I can supply you with a part number if your able to locate the model number. Which can be found usually on the inside of the pots and pans drawer at the bottom, OR on the back area or the stove. Usually will begin with letters followed by numbers. Hope this helps
