Customer Question

KitchenAid Gas Range Model KGSS
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your KitchenAid is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: I used self-clean function yesterday. At conclusion, Error Code F5EO displayed and oven light remained on.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: Today oven will not heat.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Sorry. I was using Return key between sentences. The issue is the oven will not heat in regular or convection mode. Light remains on. Gas burners light.

Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

That error code means the door latch and door switch do not agree on the position of the door. First try killing power at the breaker for a few minutes restore power and see if you still have the error, if so you have a component failure. You will need to follow the troubleshooting on page 5 under the F5 E0 error to figure out what is at fault, I have uploaded the tech data sheet for you to my google drive it is linked below. Follow the troubleshooting and you will find out what is at fault.
