Re: Maytag MER6770 F1-3 code Serial #12650733ws
F1-3 is the code for the upper oven being over 950 deg F.
If the oven is now cool, then most likely there is a problem with the temp sensor in the upper oven.
You will need to remove the rear panel from the stove and check the resistence of the sensor to know for sure if it is bad. The only other way is to hook a new sensor to the harness and see if doors will unlock then.

Take off the burner platform over the oven. Slide out the drip platform completely. Remove the access plate over the oven (Use a Phillips head sideways in a locking wrench to loosen screws). Using a long screwdriver slide the locking arm to the left of the oven as you face it, jiggle it a bit and it should release. I hesitate to clean the oven again but at least I now know how to release the lock and I saved $150.00 from my local appliance repair bandit.
Door lock motor has probably failed.....Self clean on many ovens can be a self destruct mode. Door latch
motors, sensor probes and even the electronic controls can be destroyed
by this operation. Suggest oven cleaner method.
try turning off the circuit breaker, resetting the power sometimes trips the self clean latch to operate, youll need to push in the door light switch.(it will have to think the door is closed to operate)
the oven has a feature where you set the time for it to begin cleaning and the time for it to end cleaning.
Next to the clock in the middle of the back are two dials. The top one is the start time, the bottom one is the end time.
I suggest 2 hours to allow a good cleaning.
The locked light will turn off when the cleaning is done, allowing you to open the locking lever.
You oven is locked because it is self-cleaning. Some how the handle got moved and it initiated. You may need to let the oven finish self-cleaning. Usually, it can take about an hour to complete the process. Afterward, the oven will beep when done and your oven can be opened. Good luck.
