KitchenAid Oven Error Code F5/E1 signals a malfunction in the oven door lock assembly, a critical component ensuring the secure closure of the oven door during self-cleaning cycles. When faced with this error, it is crucial to address the issue promptly to restore your oven’s functionality.

Error Description:

The F5/E1 error code indicates that the oven door lock assembly is not operating correctly. This assembly is responsible for locking the oven door securely during the self-cleaning process to prevent accidents and ensure optimal performance.

Troubleshooting Steps:

  1. Disconnect Electrical Power: To initiate the troubleshooting process, disconnect the electrical power from the oven. This ensures safety during inspection and repairs.
  2. Inspect Wires on Oven Door Lock Assembly: Carefully examine the oven door lock assembly for any loose or disconnected wires. Reconnect any wires that may have come loose during operation.
