When I try to clean oven, it locks, starts and then a F2 comes on and I have to turn it off and wait for it to cool before door will unlock!

Gibson oven door is locked after attempting to do self-cleaning.


Unplug it. Plug it back in, then press n hold start. Make sure lock handle is all the way locked. You may have to push on the door at same time while locking n unlocking. If that doesn't work, shoot it. Ha

Self cleaning lock handle does not unlock


Unplug power, wait one hower and plug cord back.

That should reset the oven, if it does not, the oven timer control is clearly defective and should be replaced , you find parts here.

Error code F5:E7 Can not get the oven door unlocked or reset this code. What do we do?


Beginner on forumn, don't have any manual in front of me on f5:e7. Sounds like a conventional oven problem, oven door locking. If in fact is some form of conventional heat oven (convection?), I had similar problem with a GE range, it flashed some kind of code seams like which I later interpreted by using owner's manual that explained codes. In my case it was in "cleaning mode" and you can't turn that off unless you unplug or turn breaker off, that puts it back to default mode with nothing running. I simply tried out the self cleaning feature, from there the oven went to full on heat and oven door locked unexpectedly. I learned stays locked till cycle finishes and oven cools, which is some time after the oven automatically switches off, said that it can be a couple of hours before you hear a...click, and now door opens (note to self, don't ever do that again).

Oven will not reach desired temperature and slight gas smell


Just had same problem it was nice it waited until christmas dinner, all i did to resolve the problem was switch the upper broiler igniter with the lower one for the oven. I tuned on the oven & it fired right up i never use the broiler on my oven so itll buy me some time. So if you can get the broiler to light try that but i did have the same low temp. & the smell of gas. Good Luck

Oven door will not unlock


Hello,, Some times this will happen after a self clean cycle if the timer did not finish the entire clean. Try to set the clock to start the self clean again then simply end the self clean. This should unlock the door. If the door remains locked. You may check the oven for an error code, or the door latch itself may need to be replaced. One other possible would be to turn off the power to the oven and try to let the oven control reset. leave the power off for about 15 minutes then turn the power back on. That will sometime work aswell. Good luck and feel free to call me if you need more help.

DO NOT KNOW HOW TO USE SELF CLEAN ON OVEN?


Hi April,

Without a model number, I'm shooting in the dark but I'll give you basic instructions that fit for most ovens, OK?

First off the door has to be locked PRIOR to cleaning. Look around the top of the oven door, there should be a handle (for mechanical models). Rotate this handle from the left to the right to lock it. If there's no handle, that means your oven locks the door by itself when "Clean Mode" is selected.

Now, at the control panel, select "Clean". At this point, you may have options on the length of time it should clean, select 3 hours and hit "Start".

There ya go! Hope this helps. If not, DON'T RATE THIS SOLUTION! Just write back and provide the model number, I'll give you exact instructions with that. Deal? Cool.

Whirlpool Super Capacity 465 oven can't figure out how to change the lightbulb and it is not listed in the owners manual. Can anyone tell me how to remove the lightbulb cover?


The glass lens cover for the bulb is usually screwed into the socket so turn it counter clockwise and see if it comes off. When replacing the light bulb, press the door switch to ensure no power is going ot the bulb socket to prevent it from damaging the new bulb.

Our Oven seems to be stuck in the Self-cleaning mode


Have you tried unplugging it and then reapplying power after a few minutes? Sometimes a power down/up cycle will reset the logic..
