What does F9 mean on my Amana range?

I have an Amana oven AOCS3040SS and the door latch jammed. The door latch motor jammed. I fixed the problem with the motor, a piece of the nylon gear broke off, and the latch works when removed from oven. However, when I install the latch, the F9 alarm continues. Is there something I need to do to reset the alarm and able to use the oven?

The F9 fault code is indicating a door lock or door lock circuit failure. The latch motor gear could be slipping or not engaging in order to actually energize the micro switches when the door is closed due to the added resistance of having to pull the door closed. Generally speaking the latch assembly will likely have to be removed and replaced or it could have a failed lock or unlock micro switch too. I added an image below with some troubleshooting and test procedures of the door latch assembly and switches.
