nothing happens at all it shows on the read out.but the elements in the stove do not heat up. i tried the self clean function and the bottom element heats up red
Expert:  Bryan replied 9 years ago.
sounds like you have a door latch problem there are switches on door lock asm. that reset after it comes out of self clean. probably switch is bad. you can go to and look up parts . there are two switches on latch asm. on for self clean and one for bake / broil. you may have to replace asm. let me know Bryan. feedback is appreciated .thanks again Bryan
