Whirlpool Oven removal


Hey everyone my name is Kirk and hope everyone has a great thanksgiving.... I wont unless someone can help me I have a Whirlpool gbs307pds11 oven that I put in cleaning mode on sunday to get it all ready for the big thanksgiving cooking. About half way thru all power just shut off and nothing on the front control panel at all. I have already had the breaker off and then back on and still nothing. I called and they say it might be the front control panel which is fine but the door is locked shut due to cleaning mode and cant get it open. I need to get it open to replace the front panel any ideas? I really need help since everyone is coming to my place for Thanksgiving please help thanks.

you will have to pull the oven first, then maybe remove the top cover to find the lock motor, manually turn the motor until the door unlocks. I doubt that the control panel is the problem, I believe there is a thermal fuse on that unit to prevent over heating, you'll have to look at the wiring diagram to figure that one out. save yourself lots of headaches and call a repair tech.

Ditto to above post. you can use a bent coathanger to release latch from front. but the oven still won't work..this has a couple of safety's -one of which is tripped. common problem with this oven..don't call that service co that said it was cont/panel w/o coming out to check it first....

bend one end into a hook. fish it around over top of door to where the latch hook is, pull to side while pulling slightly on door...too late now but-never do the self clean before a big dinner.
