Whirlpool rb160pxl built in oven, 30 years old, still cooks and broils just fine. clock works too.
BUT, when set to self clean, I get door lock and fan but it will not heat up to clean.

It sounds like the latch switch is not closing.  It is the switch at the latch with black and purple wires.  The switch is no longer available, but you may be able to substitute a generic switch.
