whirlpool microwave oven combo error caused by repairman?
Posted 23 July 2013 - 09:10 PM
It was fixed but he pulled out the control board and the oven about 1 inch or so. I tried to clean the oven and got the e1f5 error message. I hear the solenoid clicking but the latch doesn't lock. Is it somehow possible that pulling out the oven caused this or is this just a coincidence?

model number ?
Rule #1) Don't ever use Self-Clean on any Oven.
Rule #2) If you're thinking about using Self-Clean, see rule #1.
Self-Clean uses nearly 1000F for 3 hours or more.
That can wreak havoc on Electronic Controllers and Connections.

I believe the fault code indicates a problem with the latch assembly. The servicer did have to remove the trim underneath the microwave in order to pull the unit forward but shouldn't have had to mess with the latch. Some of those latches had a door switch plunger that tended to get bent, interfering with the operation of the latch. Depends on your model.
