Whirlpool Built-In Single Electric Oven, Model #RBS305PDB-CRACKED INTERIOR GLASS OVEN WINDOW

I had to buy a new Whirlpool Built-In Single Electric Oven, Model #RBS305PDB, to replace the existing inoperative Whirlpool Built-In oven. This oven has 1) AccuBake Advanced Temperature Management System 2) Self-Cleaning Oven with Auto Self-Clean Latch 3) EZ-Touch 300 Electronic Controls with Control Lockout and 4) Large Oven Window

I have noticed two major issues:

1) Selected temperature (oven had been temp calibrated) does not produce the expected results. Therefore, we had to adjust the temperature different than a recipe recommended.

2) The biggest and most dangerous & serious issues of this oven is the Self-Cleaning/ Lockout Latch feature.
a. When using the Self-Cleaning feature the surrounding cabinets & counter area became extremely hot to the point where I could not touch them.

b. The ovens interior glass oven window cracked after using this Self-Cleaning feature. I followed the directions of use for Self-Cleaning. Now I have a broken, fairly new built-in oven.
