Self clean inoperative
We have a kitchenaid stove, KESC307HWW6, with a defective self clean function. Selecting the clean function and then start causes a buzz for a second and then several seconds later the short buzz occurs again. This repeats about four or five times then an error code "F5 E1" appears in the display. Selecting canel returns oven to normal.
I can force the oven into cleaning cycle with the door open by holding the door close switch in and manualy turning the door locking latch clockwise about 1/4 turn. I am tempted to close door and reach through the front vent to turn the latch so we can clean
