The selector switch is most likely faulty, followed by the door lock assembly. Do you have a meter to perform any electrical testing with?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
what kind of meter....the only meter around here is my water meter ��
Expert:  Kelly replied 9 months ago.

An electrical test meter. I suspect you may need to call for service at this point. To access that board for testing, it requires a fair amount of disassembly. The Viking products are built like a tank and weigh just about as much!

I appreciate your help... apparently this seems to be a popular problem among Viking's. I found instructions online on how to access the board...that would be pretty risky for me alone. I had a bacon grease fire inside the oven a few weeks ago & my whole house stinks like a pig ;) Do you know if it's ok to use regular oven cleaner until I have it serviced?
Expert:  Kelly replied 9 months ago.

They make a special cleaner made for self cleaning ovens, I would use that. See the link below.
