Default Whirlpool slide-in door won't open after self-clean, display not working
Model Number: RS385PCBN0   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: More than 10 years

My wife was doing a self-clean, and suddenly she heard a loud buzz then a bang. She looked in the oven and saw what appeared to be an electrical fire from the bottom oven element just to the left-of-center. She immediately cut the circuit breaker. When I got home from work, I flipped back the circuit breaker to see what worked.

Here is what is working:
- The range
- Range indicator lights next to knobs
- oven light

Here is what is out:
- Display and Clock
- The oven door is locked

This model does not have a lever that you can pull to get the door opened. I shined a flashlight in through the window and found that the lower oven element, the baking element, had completely failed and is broken and melted in the place where my wife said she saw the fire.

So the element failed. No problem. Here's the problem:

How do I get the door open?

How do I get the display to work?

I looked at the schematics on the parts list on this website, and I don't see any part list for fuses or something that would explain why the display is out. Does that mean that the display might have been shorted when the element blew? The display is part #AP2983574

I managed to get the door open by opening the access panel underneath the range and disconnecting the lock handle from the motor. I pulled out the oven element and that is an easy fix. My problem now is how do I know that the display is fried? Is there any way to test it? Should it just work once the power is on and the element is not connected? I read online that if you get an element failure like the one I had this can cause the display to get cooked. I'd love to know if there is a way to test the display, because a replacement display is $250 and I don't want to spend that if it's not necessary.
