Customer Question

My Kenmore C880 639839G5 oven door won't lock for self clean. After pressing the clean start button it goes to the lock position and then immediately goes to the unlock position and continues same (about every second) until I press 'stop'. It will not stay in the lock position.

Hello, either the monitor switch on the door lock cam is stuck or bad, if that is fine for sure you have a bad clock control as it is not seeing the input from the monitor switch on the door latch assembly. You should take the latch assembly out and check the microswitch on the latch, check the actuator on the switch and make sure it clicks and is not stuck.

All I ask is please rate my service thanks!
