** self clean door latch will not close, makes a buzzing sound. any idea's? **

Sounds like some part of the range's door latching system needs attention. It will likely actually need to be looked into to determine the exact cause of the problem though.

You can read a bit about the different type of locking mechanisms used on self cleaning ranges at the page at the following link:


** C968-69797-3 ... can not find out who made it. **

You could try calling the Sear s parts center and asking. Or if you need parts to fix it, if you post those part number(s) here, someone should be able to identify the manufacturer of them.

Thanks Dan,

Found out it was made by Camco in 1989.

Will keep checking around. I agree that the problen is with the door locking system. I suspect it is the latching coil that is my problem or the micro-switch that activates the latching coil.

Thanks again,
