    Default Cleaning latch stuck open top oven door won't close

    Model Number: RBD275PVB00
    Brand: Whirlpool
    Age: 1-5 years

    After a series of power outages the latch that locks the top oven door closed during cleaning is protruding and won't let the top door close. I brought the question to appliance parts pros and they sold me a new control board with no affect. Do I need a new oven? Or can I repair this? Thanks

    Yes Steve, the door lock latch assembly may be stuck, it has 2 micro switches on it, one of them may be stuck closed and won't reset the latch lever to its proper position so the door can close properly.

    Here's the door lock assembly for your model:

    Thanks Jake. Is this a simple job? I have already cost myself extra money replacing the control board (which it turns out was unnecessary). Do you know of a video that shows how to get it done? It is just so easy to break a part not knowing how it is configured. Thanks.

    Ok Steve, you have 365 days to return that control board for a full refund, less shipping: Cancellations & Returns - AppliancePartsPros.com

    That latch lock assembly looks to be behind the control panel, so turn the breaker off to your appliance and open the control panel and you should see it.
