In Topic: repairing oven door latch in kitchenaid oven

You can try wiring it open and see what happens but do so at your own risk. Maybe someone else can give you a better answer. I did it once on a different range with no problems, just couldn't use self clean.

It's a very lengthy detailed procedure to get to the bottom latch. It involves taking the oven out. Separating the top from the bottom and cutting the sheet metal to reveal the latch. It's like the engineers thought the latch would never fail. You will need the service manual.

Did you verify cycling temps? It can take a good 30 minutes to check high and low temps. Has the oven sensor been changed or spliced in? Splicing doesn't work well with oven sensors. If the plug has been cut off then solder is the right connection. These work well.http://www.amazon.co...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
