Oven door will not shut tight at top

The door is not tight per say. The seal is hat determines if it is properly closed. Check to see if the seal is tight all the way around(use a strip of paper to check consistency). If it is not sealing the hinges are tweeked and need replacing.

Accident turned on self clean with door open

I tried pushing in the light switch again, and i pushed it in until it stopped, evedently it is a 2 postion switch, when the door locks it pulls the door up tight, and the switch must sense this, so after I pushed the toggle in flush the lock finished locking and while I was still holding in the light switch I pushed the stop/cancle button and the lock opened up,and vola we could use the oven again, we had pizza.

Self Clean won't start - Amana ACS3350AS Gas Kitchen Range

Our door on this oven is coming apart, so the oven door never truly closes.  When you set the self clean cycle, push the door shut until it locks... at least this has worked for me.  But I think all your problems, which are similar to mine, result from the oven door not truly closing... heat escapes, so the temp is not right and takes forever to heat up.  The heat melts the control panel, causing other problems.  In fact, our door is starting to fall open... a bit dangerous.
Good luck!

Self cleaning oven will not start for cleaning door lock problem

hi alot of people have been having this same problem with either the door locking before clean cycle and not opening or it goes through clean cycle and then the door is stuck shut and wont open.
You could try this it sometimes works before you press start push the door shut and keep pressure on it i mean lean on the door so your pushing it shut further than it is now then whilst putting pressure on the door try pressing start button again if it then starts cleaning cycle keep pushing door for about a minute then gently let go of the door.
This should then allow it to go through clean cycle but remember when clean cycle has finished dont try opening the door strait away as you will then have the problem door stuck and wont open you need to let the oven cool down before the door will open.
If after pushing the door shut a bit further you still have problem then the only thing you can try is switching off at mains for 24 hours this should release the lock let me know how you get on ok
