Re: No power and door locked after starting self cleaning...
Thermal fuse went out by door latch and thermal fuse on back of oven probably tripped too; once failed they need to be replaced. This is probably a job for the repairman as something caused fuse to go out in the first place; unless resolved it will recur. Please contact me if you need further help or leave feedback if appropriate as that is how I get paid. Thanks for letting me help you!

Most ovens with self-clean cycles have a door lock to keep things closed when it ramps up the the extreme heat levels for cleaning. Usually, the door will stay locked until the thermostat sensor says that the oven is back down at or close to room temperature. If you just finished the cleaning cycle, you'll likely need to wait a while longer.
more than likely the tco thermal cutout fuse has opened during cleaning and now the ovens latch motor cant get power to open,its under the top cover where the surface elements are located its a frequent thing with all ovens/stoves
Press the self-clean button. The panel becomes blank(---), then press the up arrow( ^ ). The panel will appear 3:00 (indication for the duration of self-cleaning). The oven will lock on its own and start the self-cleaning.
This code means the control has detected a problem with the door latch switch. Switch is defective and needs replaced. Part # is W10107820 and cost is $39.99. You can get it at this LINK Before calling a repair shop,go to the circuit breaker box and turn off the power to the oven. then turn it back on and then see if the door is released and the error is cleared. its probaly bent door latch or door sensor gone bad. try pushing on the door when you start the clean cycle see if that helps. if not our suggestion would be to replace the part....
The most common reason for this is the door not sealing properly, if hot air escapes out the seal during the clean cycle it will be pulled across the thermal fuse.
The second most common cause is reduced air flow. If the blower wheel is dirty it cannot move as much air across the fuse to keep that area cool, if the vents just above and below the door are dirty and dusty they can block air flow too.
Hello - we have had this same issue a number of times as well. Do you lose all power on the unit too? We do - have discovered that using the self-cleaning isn't really a good idea with these ovens. The ovens aren't really made to heat to such high heats that are used in the cleaning cycle and during that last hour of cleaning it hits it highest peak - and it blows it's fuses. We recently blew 2 fuses at the same time, locking both doors (Double oven) and knocking out the power for the entire unit. Our repair man said that the average on wall ovens is anywhere between 6 - 12 cleanings before you will blow the same fuses and the whole cycle starts all over again. Our expense was $350. So, self-cleaning now means elbow grease around this house. How this information was a bit helpful for you.
KitchenAid KEBC107KSS does not heat hot enough and does not heat evenly. When the temperature is dialed higher, it burns the cookies. When the convection fan is on, it has a 'cooling effect' so the temperature never reaches the proper level. Is this problem repairable? Or is this a thermostat issue? Thank you for your help!
