    Appliance guys are like chimney sweeps mostly thieves

    YouTube the repair. Buy your own parts and fix it yourself

    With the money you save you can buy a Nightforce scope

          Search for Whirlpool you may find it as Kitchenaid is made by whirlpool and a oven door latch will be the same on both brands

            Not sure of any appliance guys in your area, but if you decide to give fixing it yourself another shot this is a pretty cool website for how-to videos, and replacement parts.
            I came across it trying to fix the ice maker on my fridge last month. It walked me through some troubleshooting steps and I was able to repair it with only fixing a collapsed feed line and replacing a filter.

                Tried them. No video. Searched Whirlpool too. Only videos I've found are for completely different ovens.
                I found the part in several places. Rather expensive. $145 for a little latch and solenoid.
                Here's the part for my oven

                I think I can figure it out but I'm just so annoyed that I don't want to deal with it anymore.
                I think I'll give the place ( JS Appliance) MikeM posted a call on Monday and ask what a service call would be.
                If it isn't insane I'll let them do it instead of me screwing it up more.

                  There's an appliance parts supply place on Sunrise Hwy in Bay Shore. Suffolk Appliance, or som'p'n' like that. Located on the south service road between 5th Ave and Brenntwood Rd., West of the South Shore mall. I think there a boot and leather place near it.

                  If they don't have the part, they can probably identify it and get it.

                    It's not just the part it's understanding how to get to it without breaking anything else and installing it properly.
                    Perhaos I can call them and ask. Doesn't hurt

                      If you don't have the manual with an exploded view, try to find it on line. If you can't find it, I'll bet they can. That should clue you in to what else has to be removed and how to replace it.

                      I've done this many times with appliances and power tools. The only time I usually "call a guy" is when I can't diagnose the problem myself. I don't want to guess and buy a part that won't fix the problem. But if the broken part is known to me, I try to replace it myself.

                        I spent about 2 hours last night searching the interwebz.
                        No info for this model at all or even one similar.
                        I found the part and schematics but it really doesn't show any detail of how to get to it. The schematics separate each section and are no use in this.
                        I even posted a question on amazon ( they also have the part)and someone answered. It seemed like I should be able to do it.

                        This is my question and his answer:

                        How do you get to the latch assembly to replace it on a kitchenaid superba double wall oven model kebc277kbl0?

                        You will have to slide the oven out, take off the 8 screws for the metal cover, and you will see the latch. There are 2 screws in the front where the small grill is, and 2 screws securing the latch to the body. Make sure you shut off the breaker or unplug the unit. That is the only way to replace the latch. If you cannot slide it out, there are 2 screws on the inside when you open the oven door. Remove those screws and take off the decorative panel. There you will see 2 screws to remove and then you can slide the oven out enough to remove the cover panel. I hope this helps.


                        Perhaps I should take a ride to Suffolk Appliance, (I looked them up and you were correct with the name)
                        Doesn't hurt and they are not too far from me.
