Hello, this is Dave. The news I have for you may be difficult to hear. There is a thermostat in the back of the oven that failed during clean. This could have been be cause the cooling fan failed or slowed down etc. To get the oven out to check that part the door needs to be manually unlocked. It is done with a wire or plastic card that is bent to fit. Move right to left over the top of the doo. With the door open you can get to the screws that hold in the oven. Does this sound like something you want to tackle?
