Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

Unfortunately your thermal fuse on the back of the oven blew during self clean. Self clean gets very hot and unfortunately it can cause the thermal fuse on the back of the oven to trip which cuts out the heat. The entire oven would need to be pulled out and the back sheet metal panel will need to be removed to access the part so depending on how handy you are you may need a technician. Either way, below is a link to the part you'd need to order for your model.
