Question about Kitchen Ranges

Range door doesn't lock for cleaning

I have a whirlpool gold range that was in the house when we bought it 2 1/2 years ago. I have never been able to successfully get the door to lock for cleaning. It locks and then you hear a click click sound and it unlocks again. Then the reverse happens until you cancel the setting. The door handle is all scratched on one side. I think the door might have been forced open before it automatically releases after it cools down.

Sounds like your right
the lock is not engaging the lock switch
so it rolls out
safe open
you should be able to bend the latch enough to catch

I cannot get the self-cleaning feature on the range to engage. I bought the house and the previous owner left me no instruction booklets. I do not know how to make the range door lock while it is cleaning....

Check between the Door and the top of the range. There is usually a manual lock that you will need to push to one side to lock the door so that the cleaning cycle will engage.

Whirlpool range RDE 6100N2

Instead of trying to place the bracket to the door from a lowered position at floor level, I positioned the brackets and from a standing position, placed the bracket into the slot, pushed in a downward position and the door went into place.
