Is it in the clean mode ?

Customer: replied 9 years ago.
It was in the clean mode. Then, I got a F5 or FS error about half way through. I pressed Upper oven Off and allowed it to cool. It has had plenty of time to cool, but the light is on and the door is still locked.
Expert:  Glenn replied 9 years ago.

Set the timer on the clean to 5 minutes from now this should release the lock

Customer: replied 9 years ago.
It now has been 5 min and nothing has changed.
Expert:  Glenn replied 9 years ago.

Go to your electric panel and shut the power off to it for 2 minutes

Customer: replied 9 years ago.
Now, It has PF, but is still locked.
Expert:  Glenn replied 9 years ago.
PF is power failure now let's try the timer again set it 5 min ahead
Customer: replied 9 years ago.
I tried to run the lower oven and I get a "door" error also even though the door is closed.

Let's try to clear the code from memory first. Press and hold any button on the clock control down for 1 minute and see if that clears the code.
