When I enter a command to bake and hit start, the door light comes on and the door is closed. The elements do not heat. It looks like the self clean lock is protruding to hold door off a bit from closing.
Answer Hello Sylvia,
This sounds like there is a problem with the door lock assembly or the control. You will need to list a model number from the units' I.D. tag for us to recommend any specific part numbers.
I have a Kitchenaid electric double oven model KEBS207DBL8. The upper oven door latch spring broke and the latch does not operate. I will buy the Oven Door Latch Assembly Part Number AP3135403. What is the step-by-step procedure to gain access to the broken latch and replace it with the new Oven Door Latch Assembly part? Thank you.

shipping tape and tape over the front edge of
the top cover to hold it in place and keep it from
vibrating during operation.
