Hi,

I ran a self-clean on the upper oven without incident. I then ran it on the lower oven and when it was done the door remained locked and the display says "Too Hot" even after waiting overnight.

I tried turning off the power at the circuit breaker for several hours but no luck. When the self-clean first ran the display had error codes F5 - E7. Now those codes no longer appear, just the "Too Hot" message.

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks!
Pete

Hi Pete,

Here's the tech. data sheet for your model: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BzvgAyLTSh14Z1NxR3ViR01vRW8

F5 E7=Self clean latch will not unlock

You will need a multimeter to do ohm testing.

1. Check the Latch Assembly:
- Check latch arm pivot joint, arm/solenoid connection, solenoid spring, and spring washer.
2. Check the Latch Solenoid:
- Check for firm electrical connections.
- Disconnect the two wires from the solenoid and measure the resistance of the solenoid. A small resistance (approx. 175Ω) is normal. If the solenoid is open (∞Ω) or shorted (0Ω), it should be replaced.
3. Check the Latch Switch. Disconnect it and use a continuity tester:
- Door latched = switch closed, continuity should read 0Ω.
- Door unlatched = switch open, continuity should read ∞Ω.
4. Check Door Open/Closed Switch. Disconnect it and use a continuity tester:
- Door open = switch closed, continuity should read 0Ω.
- Door closed = switch open, continuity should read ∞Ω.
5. Check power and element connections.
