FYI several of the techs were disscussing the self cleaning problem and they were saying that they found that boring a 1 1/2 - 2 inch hole in the rear corners
(top & bottom) of the cabinet and opening the doors and/or door a little when in self clean
Let me know how that works out for you, Earl. For starters, the oven does not run in self-clean unless the door is locked.

F. will surely create an insurance liability claim if nothing else. If you take that old oven those folks are throwing away and put a new control panel on it, you'll be good as new. I can appreciate the fact that you mentioned looking at it "from the side", but unless you have calibrated eyeballs, looking does not confirm anything. The panel was affected by the last self clean and needs to be replaced.
