It is possible for the oven thermostat to function properly for baking and broiling but not for cleaning. Due to its complexity, the oven thermostat is difficult to test. If you suspect the oven thermostat is at fault, replace it.

Cause 4Door Switch

A defective door switch may prevent the oven door from locking. The door switch is often part of the circuit that causes the oven door to lock during the self-cleaning cycle. If the oven door is unable to lock, the self-cleaning cycle will not start. To determine whether the door switch is defective, use a multimeter to test it for continuity. If the door switch does not have continuity, replace it.
