I found the problem quickly at the Partselect web site but because the over door was still locked I called for a repairman. He used a large Allen wrench to force the latch open. But with this type of double oven I really only needed access to the lower over to remave the 2 screws on the side rail to get the oven out. The repairman found the in-line fuse that shut off the control panel but after looking at the schematics decided that the circuit board was blown and that part was no longer available. I was told to buy a new oven ($2000). But because of looking at this web site I decided to also check the shutdown thermal fuse in the back of the oven and found it to be blown (I guess the repairman did not see this in the schematics and decided this oven did not have one). The repairman charged me $89 for the service call, the 2 parts from Partselect cost me $81, so much better than $2000 for a new oven. The instructions given for replacing the parts were spot on, just needed help from my neighbor lifting the the oven in and out of the wall.
