Oven will not heat at all after an interrumpted cleaning cycle (power went off)
I have a brand new oven that stopped working after an interrupted cleaning cycle. All lights work fine but it is not heating at all. The fan is working.
Can some one tell me what to do? - This was the second time I was using the oven - I used the self clean and the power went off due to a storm.

There is a thermo fuse located behind the back panel of the oven. If the oven appears to be working but is not actually heating then this is the cause. The oven will have to be removed from the wall, power to the oven shut off at the main breaker and the back panel removed. the thermo fuse is just to the left and up from the center of the convection fan. It has 2 wires connected to it.

First make sure that you wait long enough before you try. If it has not cooled completely it will not release the lock from the lock position. Sometimes if you cycle the power to your oven off and then on again you can reset the oven and the switch may relax, but in your case you may have to lightly pry the latch assembly to the open position. Turn off the breaker to your oven for a good minute or two before reapplying the power again.
If this fails to work then check your manual for instructions or to get a factory service number. They should be able to give you the information you need to open your oven.
You will need to press the stop/cancel button, this will clear the cleaning cycle, due to the interruption. If this does not clear the display you will need to unplug the stove for five minutes and then plug it back in and this should clear the display.
Usually, when an oven won't heat, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.
There is a manual reset button behind the vent under the touch pad. Turn off the power. Open the door. Remove the vent. Behind the latch is a two wire switch. press the red button on it until it clicks. reassemble and turn on power. It over heated when the power went off by stopping the cooling fan.
To Stop or Interrupt a Self-Cleaning Cycle
If it becomes necessary to stop or interrupt a self-cleaning cycle due to excessive smoke or fire:
1. Push CANCEL.
2. Once the oven has cooled down and the word "LOCKED" shown in the display has gone out, then the oven door can be opened.
tde, sounds like your thermal fuse (TC0) opened on the back side of the oven. If this opens, it will shut the oven down. This happens alot during self cleaning on built ins. Sometimes I have to re-route the tco to a different area to prevent this from happening. Your part number is 4451442. You will have to pull the oven out far enough to remove the back paneling and replace the fuse....Catriver..post back.
