Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX forward to helping you today.
is the door locking ?
The sequence in the instructions is:
1. slide door latch to thr right
2.Press: CLEAN button
3. Adjust cleaning time with: ARROWS
4. Turn oven temperature dial to: CLEAN
5.Turn selector Dial to: CLEAN
I assume you are asking about Step # XXXXX The CLEAN button?
No there is no button to push while locking the door.
I am not so sure it is a solenoid style. Before hooking up with this site I was searching the internet and saw a "heat sensitive" style with a diagram that looked similar at least the latch part that I can see looks similar. http://www.appliance411.com/faq/cleanlock.shtml
Is it possible that I could have that style?
I will try to and get back with you...may be 1/2 hour or so.
Although I cannot open the door when the switch is to the right, should i hear definite clicking sound when I lock it?
I have opened the top of the stove and have access to the lock assembly. What does the "micros look like and how do I test it?
Whe the latch is unlocked (left position) it is almost completely hidden under the overhang of the stove top. When to the right(locked position) it does not go a far under the over hang. This does no appear correct ?!
the rod goes through the back. I will take the back plate off and see where it connects to.
I am sending you 2 photos. The first is when the latch is in the locked position and the second is in th unlocked position.
My computer is not allowing me to upload the photos. Please respond back and I will send. I think I interrupted the sequence.
Not sure what continuity means but the rod is in contact with a strip of metal attached to a little box.
When unlocked it is is not in contact.
When I try to attach the photos now 1 box comes up to "browse" but the second box does not as did with the first photos
yes there are 2 yellow wires. It looks similar to the photo you sent me except there are spots for 2 where the 2 yellow wires slid onto.
I had 2 windows open with our conversations and sent the photos through the other one
yes that is the locked position. I do not have a volt meter and will have to go to the hardware store and buy one. Is there anything special I need to buy or are they all the same and how do i check it?
Also, I will he clicking "accept answer" but was not sure if that would end our session so i have not yet.
I'm sending you a link on how to test with a meter. u just need a cheap one to do this. heres a video. click this link. http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Micro-Switch/3B73362F/1325771
There is continuity, I can get a new lock assembly mechanism and change it out.
Any other suggestions
yes...see photo below
either your selector switch is bad or the thermostat is bad one or the other. at this point I would call a tech the parts may not be available.
