Help! We just cleaned our Maytag Gemini oven and now it is

Customer Question

Help! We just cleaned our Maytag Gemini oven and now it is beeping intermittently and it is showing F9-2, and telling us to call a service number or an authorized Maytag servicer. I called the service number, but the outgoing message at that number says they are not open till morning. What should we do?

Now, it is still beeping intermittently and showing the F9-2 code, and the door is still locked.
It is now after midnight, so if this service is not going to answer me back and I can call the Maytag service telephone number when they open at 8am Eastern (5am this time zone) then I am going to want the fee refunded.

THe upper oven door lock is jammed closed, that is the error code that you received, you can remove the back cover on the oven an manually open the door and hopefully the lock will reset, otherwise you will need to replace the upper door lock mechanism on the unit.
