    Don't ask me why, but my mom took the door off the stove and took it apart. Now she can't remember how to put it back together. Please help. Since I didn't see her do it, I have no clue how every thing goes back together. If someone could point me in the direction of the specs with pics, I could do it.

How do I lock door for self cleaning


Some ovens have a latch handle between the top of the door and the actual range top that you have to push sideways to lock. May also be a lock button you have to push in while moving the latch handle.
If you don't see the latch handle, The lock system may be the hidden type that should lock automatically when set to clean. Once the oven is set properly for clean, a motor will latch the door by itself. After the oven gets close to clean temperature, the latch gets locked out and the door will not open until the clean cycle is complete and oven cools down to normal room temperature again. This is a safety feature so you can't open the door while the oven is at clean temp (about 850 degrees). Hope this explains enough. If door never auto latches, could be a problem with the latch/lock system and motor.

How do you use the self-cleaning ??? i lost my manual within minutes of getting....


we have a sears kenmore model and this is how we do it. remove everything from stove including the racks, close oven door, slide door lock latch to the right till it locks the door. turn knob to clean. when it is done cleaning it will turn off by itself. on some models the door latch will not slide open when done. just wait for it to cool if this is the case. it should tell on the touch pad on stove the hours that it takes to clean it. good-day !

The Oven and Range are working; however I have a F5 code on the display. Can you tell me what this means?


The F5 code means that the range door isn't latching properly (for some Whirlpool ranges). Check the latch when the oven is cool. If it is loose, tighten the screws that hold the latch. Try opening and closing the door to see if the latch is clicking shut properly. Then unplug the range for 30 seconds to a minute to reset the unit. If the error clears, you're done.

If the error persists, clean the latch area. With the oven not in use, rub the latch area with a cloth that you dunked in hot water and wrung out the excess water. Then dry with a paper towel.

If cleaning doesn't help, the latch probably needs to be replaced.

I hope this helps. Please give me the model number of your range for additional ideas. Whirlpool has the user's manuals for most of their appliances at their site. See http://www.whirlpool.com/custserv/index.jsp and the Manuals and Literature search box.

F5 - E1 Self clean latch will not lock
1. If door latched:

  4. Re-apply power.
  5. Press and hold any key down for 1 minute to clear F5 failure code from memory. F2 will appear. Press CANCEL and observe for 1 minute to ensure operation is correct.

  2. Check wires and connectors from control to latch switch, then from latch switch to control. If no damage to wires and all connectors okay, proceed to step C.
  3. Repeat steps A and B for door switch.
3. Measure door switch (door open = switch open small low voltage terminals). Replace switch if defective.
4. Measure latch switch (unlatch = switch open, CAUTION - oven light contacts are closed). Replace switch if defective.
5. If corrections are made in any step, reconnect power to control. Press and hold any key for 1 minute to clear R failure code from memory. F2 will appear. Press CANCEL and observe for 1 minute to ensure operation is correct.

My kenmore 46745 or 46749 (both models listed on the manual) door is jammed. I accidentally opened the oven door, stopping a cleaning cycle after only 15 seconds, and now the door will not close...the lock...


Hi,

If you've interrupted the clean cycle or have accidentally set the clean cycle with the oven door open, the latch may have engaged and now the door can't be closed because it will hit the latch. There may be a door activated switch on the front face of the oven. In this case you may need to manually press that door switch with your finger while at the same time canceling the clean cycle to get the latch to retract so the door can close fully again.
