Mailbag: E1 - F5 Fault Code on a Kenmore Range

My relatively new Kenmore Gas Oven (Model #665 75824000) produces an error code whenever we try to use the self cleaning feature. After setting up the oven to begin self clearning the following error code shows up on the LCD. E1 - F5 -

Can someone tell me what this means and if it's possible for me to fix this ?

THanks !

Oh! Oh! I know the answer, call on me!

Using the magical model number decoder, I cleverly discern that Whirlpool is the manufacturer of your Kenmore range. On all Whirlpool ranges, the E1 - F5 fault code (which, according to the commutative property of fault codes, is the same as the F1 - E5 code) means a problem with the door lock switch. Could be a bent latch or latch assembly that's not actuating the latch switch correctly or that the latch switch itself is bad. Check the door switch, too.

Possible to fix? Unfortunately, you'll have the throw the range out and buy a new one.

Or, you could use use your multimeter to check it out and buy the the replacement part (switch or latch assembly, as indicated by the sparkling troubleshooting that I know you'll do).

our self cleaning Kenmore oven is showing a error sign in the window that it shows us digitally what the temperature is when we hit bake, it shows f3. Our model # is 9118369180 and our serial # is 0 or D and then f64425. We are thinking maybe it needs cleaned but we are not sure how to run that cycle, can you be of some help?
