Great thread!

Even though oven locking devices are not universal, might be a good time to check the common stock items.

another common failure i see during the holidays is the old style clocks being accidently set into automatic mode

i guess while family are over helping they either try to set a timer or reset the time and they change the clock from its manual mode to auto

after any major holiday i always talk customers through resetting their clock if they tell me they have no bake and no indicator light glowing, it might cost a service call, but it gains a customer that will always call you again the next time they truely do require a technician

“My Rules”:

Rule # 1) Don't ever use Self-Clean on any Oven.

Rule # 2) If you're thinking about using Self-Clean, see rule # 1.
Self-Clean uses nearly 1000F for 3 hours or more.  :burning:

That can wreak havoc on Electronic Controllers and Connections.

I always get the Kitchen Aid/ Whirlpool double wall ovens that shut down during self clean.  Not only does the thermal cutoff in the back of the oven open up, but also the control thermal fuse  as well. 

I did one last week, and the control panel could not be opened up without pulling the oven out of the wall. 

I was REALLY angry with Whirlpool for not listing or showing the control board thermal fuse in the Illustrated Parts Look up, so of course  I had to leave my customer's house with the oven pulled out of the wall to go to the parts supplier to pick up the thermal fuse for the control board and then return so I could finish the repair.
