The oven was on for 45 min at 350, when it started to be beep and display the F9 code. I unplugged it and let it sit for a couple hours. When I plugged it in, it did the same thing. How can I confirm that the door latch assembly needs to be replaced? Or is it something else?
Answer Hello Steve,
You would want to check the wiring to the door latch and check the door latch itself. If the latch and wiring look good then you would need to replace the control 5701M518-60. On the latch unlock switch should have continuity through it if it is closed. If there is not continuity and the door latch is unlocked then you will need to replace latch assembly 74005575. This will be the switch with black and tan wires. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
tHE LOCK ON MY OVEN DOOR WAS STUCK. I RESOLVED THAT PROBLEM BUT NOE THE LATCH WILL NOT RETRACT AND I CANNOT CLOSE THER OVEN DOOR.i HAVE UNPLUGGES IT AND THAT DID NOT RESET IT
Answer Jackie, You will need to do one of two things, a) program the clean cycle waiit a couple of minutes, then cancel the cycle, hopefully the motor will retract back to it's unlocked position. Otherwise, you will need to raise the cooktop and access the latch assembly and uninstall it, until you can test the switch circuits and motor, or replace it. Thanks and Good Luck
How can I release the oven door lock? It appears to have locked as we were replacing the glass top. It is F9 warning. We may have solved the problem but it may flip tight on us.
Answer Robert, if you were able to manually unlock the door and now have the F9 fail code. You can try unplugging the power cord or turn off the breaker for a few minutes and power it up again. Program a self clean cycle and cancel the selection after a few minutes. The control board constantly looks for a proper circuit on the latch switch and will usually run the motor until it finds the proper circuit. Good Luck!
