F5 - E0Door switches do not agree (condition exists when door switch is closed indicating an open door, and latch switch is closed indicating a locked door)1. If door latched:

  1. Disconnect power from unit.
  2. Check wires and connectors from control to door switch, then from door switch to control. If no damage to wires and all connectors okay, proceed to step C.
  3. Replace door switch.
  4. Re-apply power.
  5. Press and hold any key down for 1 minute to clear F5 failure code from memory. F2 will appear. Press CANCEL and observe for 1 minute to ensure operation is correct.

Did not help. Went from f5e1 to f2e1 and back to f5e1 again. The lock symbol still shows on the face.
