Question about Kenmore Ovens
The error code F5 indicates the electronic control board has failed. The failure could be the sensor probe, loose or bad sensor probe wire harness connection .
This error code can sometimes be caused by a power surge or glitch through the electric lines. You can try shutting off the circuit breaker to the electric range for 2 minutes. If the code returns after powering the oven back up, then you will probably need to replace the control board.
Before replacing the control board, the sensor probe needs to be tested.
Remove the oven temperature sensor probe from inside the oven cavity. It will be protruding into the oven cavity at the upper left hand or upper right hand corner of the rear wall. It will be secured to the rear wall with two (2) screws. Remove the two screws and pull the oven sensor probe outwards and disconnect it from the quickly disconnect plug. The oven sensor probe will need to be tested with an ohm meter by measuring the resistance of the oven sensor. Measure the resistance by placing the meter leads across the two wires of the oven sensor. The resistance should measure 1100 ohms at room temperature (72 degrees).
If the ohm reading is close to the 1100 ohms it should be reconnected and measure where it connects at the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board. If it measures the same, I recommend replacing the Electronic Oven Control board. If it does not measure at 1100 ohms, replace the oven sensor probe.
Hope this helps.

You can start the self cleaning cycle again and then stop it after 15 minutes, then let the oven cool for sometime and check if the door opens again, if the not then you have to take a screw driver and open the latch. After this the latch mechanism should be replaced as it is bad. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Press the "Off/Clear' button to cancel anything on the display, and reset the oven. This is a soft reset and will simply get you out of any program you have started. If the problem still persist,
Perform a hard reset. Pull the plug out of the wall power supply, and wait a moment. Plug the oven back into the wall power supply to reset any anomalies with the oven memory.
