  • robert samples Feb 15, 2008

    sorry for the questions but im trying to help does you model have a hand latch to lock the door

  • robert samples Feb 15, 2008

    does you top raise up it looks like you will need to get to the latch assembly and check the micro switch assembly that tells the eoc or clock that the door is locked it may be bad or stuck the second option would be to get to the back of the range and see if one of the wires is marked dr and un plug it third is lock the door start self clean then cancel

Cannot do anything but self=clean

The oven temperature is regulated by a temperature sensor when placed in self clean the sensor is removed from the circuit and full power is applied to both the bake and broil elements causing an the temperature to exceed in some some models up to 1,000 F. I would recommend against using self clean for the simple fact that no oven cavity to this date has been designed to withstand that high of a temperature and therefore excess heat is passed upward resulting in damaged lock mechanisms, control boards, and other electronic components. More than likely your thermostat or oven control has been damaged and needs to be replaced. I would replace the temperature sensor as well

The oven is stuck at LOC.

The locking motor has gone bad on the range. Common for this to happen after self clean. You will have to replace or have the lock assembly replaced for the stove to work again

I can't get oven to work on broil or bake; only self-cleaning.

Welcome to Fixya
My name is Huum,

Try turning the breaker off for 5 minutes and see if this resets the system.
if not you may have a defective Control board and you will need to have a HANDS on tech to diagnose these parts to be sure! They will have the diagnose equipment !

it really doesnt matter because the heat transfers directly onto the food therefore you can leave the door open or shut.
