Customer Question
On Maytag wall oven...

On Maytag wall oven CWE 5800 ACE, attempt was made to open door before self-cleaning cycle was completed. It appears locking door opening mechanism is stuck closed. Help, turkey day is almost here. Wife is bonkers.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

CWE 5800 ace

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Don't know how old. Guess is more than 10, maybe 20 years. It's a double wall oven.

I hope you can tell me how to do the work alone. Getting a serviceman out the day before Thanksgiving may be difficult. I have left a message for one who has done work for me in the past. Who knows if he will call back.
