Oven door stayed locked with oven light on.

Problem : One of the door latch center spindle locking clips had sheared off when the door was slamed shut. The latch then lifts up causing the light switch stay on and latch to stay engaged.
1/ To open the door slide your fingers or a bent tool right to left to slide the latch to open the door.
2/ Go to the bottom of the open door on both sides and remove the screws. Then lift the plastic covering strips away.
3/ Remove the screws on both outsides at the top of the removed tracks
4/ Now you can lift the front panel with the clock up and off.
5/ Remove the 3 plugs on the back of that panel .
6/ Remove the 2 screws just above the latch.

Customer: Anthony from Lambertville, MI

Oven door latch would self-activate the door-lock feature for all operatons making it impossible to use the oven

My electric oven is a built-in. First I turned off power to the oven.

Then, I removed the oven door as instructed by Kitchenaid, next I removed the screws that held the concealing-sleeves on each side of the oven opening. Slid down the sleeves, loosened the exposed screws on each to allow the oven to slide out. Slid the oven out abut half way to expose the top. Removed the metal sheeting from top of oven to expose area where door latch assembly was secured. Removing the sheeting was made easier by removing the screws on each side of the control panel and lifting the panel out of the way.

The latch assembly is held in place by two screws through the front of the plastic venting. Identified the connections to appropriate points before I removed the wiring, removed wiring and attached to points on the new latch assembly.

Secured latch assembly to plastic vent, secured sheeting to top of oven, placed conrol panel back in place, pushed oven back and secured with screws.
Slid sleeves into position, secured with screws and replaced oven door.
