Hi. I had the same problem with my Sears Kenmore Easy Bake oven. The self clean wouldn't start. I took everything apart and checked the motor, switch and wiring and found no problem. I tried unplugging the stove and also tried pressing a button down to clear the memory and still had no luck. However, I did fix the problem. I tricked the electronics to clear whatever was stuck. Here are the steps I took: I had the door open slightly and started a cleaning cycle. At first it showed the door was open on the display. I pressed and held the door switch to clear that message then I manually moved the door latch and held it in the closed position. I let it run for about 10 - 20 seconds and then the cleaning cycle actually started. I then let go of just the latch still holding the door switch down and presto the latch stayed in the locked position. I then shut off the oven heard the motor for the door lock spin and it moved the door lock back into position. I shut the door started a new cleaning cycle and Presto again I can now hear the motor for the door lock work and lock. The oven started the cleaning cycle and it works now. Talk about saving a few hundred dollars in parts and labor. I wonder how many people could have saved themselves money by just performing the trick I just did. Anyway, I am a true believer in passing on information and hopefully someone will benefit from this message. Just for kicks if anyone does post a message here. I would like to know. Thanks!

Based on your description, the E1 F5 error code likely indicates that the door latch is not operating. Without a model number for your range, I have to depend on the details of your symptoms. Here is some information that should help:

Make sure that the oven door is closed when you start the Self Clean cycle. Check the door switch to see if it is apparently operating properly. Open the oven door and the oven light should turn on. Press in the door switch plunger and the light should turn off. If the light switch is not operating properly, it could cause this type of problem.

If the light switch is operating properly, then you could have a failed door latch assembly. A wiring failure or a problem with the control board could also cause this failure. I recommend that you

unplug the range

and access the door latch assembly at the back of the range. Pull the upper and lower back panels off of the range. Caution: The edges on these panels can be sharp. Protective gloves are recommended. With the panels off, check the wire harness connections on the door latch assembly. The image below shows an image of this component. Also, check the wire harness connections on the back of the control board in the console. The partial wiring diagram below has the door latch wiring highlighted. If the connections are okay, then you may need to replace the door latch assembly or the control board. If you want to repair this problem yourself without further diagnosis, I recommend that you try replacing the door latch motor (a $40 part). If that does not fix the problem and you have no wiring problems, then the control board (a $300 part) may need to be replaced.

These tips may help you fix this problem. If you need more help, submit additional details and the full model number of your Kenmore range.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:
