what does the latch assem. have to do with it? the door opens...
Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
the lock assembly has a micro switch on it that if it goes bad the oven wont come on after self clean. it sends power to the control.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
the oven worked before self clean. did the switch go bad after the cleaning?
Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
yes, what happens is the lock unlocks but the switch doesn't return to the closed position, this almost always happens right after self clean. when the switch is depressed and then gets stuck or burns inside.

i'm a retired electrician...can i jump the switch and not ever use self clean, will the oven then work?
Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
yes you can do that. it should work. if not your control is bad, theres no way both the bake and broil elements would both fail . 9 out of 10 times its the door latch . let me know. thanks, Bryan
