Solution!!! The hinges that Kitchen Aid uses are the problem. If the door is opened quickly & bottoms out, the steel in the hinge bends a little. So when you go to close the door it won't close all the way.... which causes problems with the latch , latch switch, oven cleaning, etc.
After taking apart the door several times I realized the hinge can be "fixed" without even removing the door. Follow the directions in the user manual for door removal... after inserting the little metal hinge stops (a drill bit or nail will work) Close the oven door till the stops won't allow it to close any further.....then gently but firmly, push forward. This will bend the hinge back to original shape. Remove the pins...Voila!!!
I wish kitchenaid used hardened steel or a thicker hinge....then this wouldn't happen.

When I had a similar problem, the door wouldn't unlock even after unplugging, waiting 30 minutes, and plugging the oven back in. I finally had to manually unlock the oven by turning the lock latch motor myself.
Here's a good page that describes what the lock latch motor looks like and where it's located. Of course, there is 220V current running around inside there, so please unplug before removing the back access cover and put it back on before plugging the oven back in.

the oxygen on the burners was close, that will give you the soot or black smoke and also will give you a much bigger flame.

Hi, just wanted to ask, are you sure the safety valves are bad? seems strange that 2 would go bad like that. I have seen thermocouples ( $7 to $12 ) improperly installed,routed, not an OEM part,dirty pilots, affect them alot more often than a bad safety ($150 to $250). There is no baffle plate behind the safety, however, if mounted properly, it should be well out of any heat range that would be causing any problems. Are you sure it isn't "front venting" ? meaning the exhaust, or part of it, has to escape out of the front of the unit, causing it to overheat? this can be caused by a few things, something blocking,covering,in the flue. Your gas pressure too high, or no regulator at all, sooting, clogged orfice causing gas to burn in the burner, alignment of orfice to burner, etc.. Hope all that helps, let us know :)
