Whirlpool Comb oven/microwave oven door locked
« on: May 18, 2009, 12:46:49 AM »
I have a Comb oven/microwave builtin and the Oven went into a clean mode and the door locked and will not unlock even after it has cooled down. After pushing and holding down the cancel button on the oven I get E5 n F2.  The microwave works fine, does anyone have any ideas what's wrong.
Thanks

Model Number: GMC275PDB6 icon

Here's what the tech sheet says about your model and the F-5 issue:

1. Disconnect power or unplug oven.
2. Check the latch assembly: latch arm pivot joint, arm/motor connection,
plunger and hook springs.
3. Check the Latch Motor:
- Check for firm electrical connections.
- Disconnect the two wires from the motor and measure the resistance of
the motor. If the motor is open (∞Ω) or shorted (0Ω), it should be
replaced.
4. 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.
5. Check Door Open/Closed Switch. Disconnect it and use a continuity tester:
Door open = switch open, continuity should read ∞Ω.
Door closed = switch closed, continuity should read 0Ω.
6. Check Sister Board:
- Check connections latch motor sister board.
- Replace sister board.
7. Check power and element connections.
8. Replace control.


Perhaps if you gave the entire model number, the tech sheet for it can be presented to you...you forgot some numbers on the ends.

Thanks for your reply but my message says F2 not F5, my display says E5 followed by F2, what does that mean.
Thanks

I repeat...I need the whole entire model number, thanks.  Unless you want a generic tech sheet to look at. No guarantees.

F-2 usually means a bad control panel (touch pad)

The touchpad and control must be replaced at the same time in this unit.
