How do i operate the self cleaning function


Hello - Before using the self-cleaning cycle of the appliance, remove the broiler pan and any utensils stored in the appliance. Also remove any excess spillovers in the oven cavity. Allow the oven to cool before cleaning. During the self-cleaning cycle, the outside of the wall oven can become very hot to the touch.

Typically to set the controls for a self-clean the first step is to confirm that the clock shows the correct time of the day. Press CLEAN. "---" appears in the display. Press the UP ARROW or DOWN ARROW once. "3:00" appears in the display for a 3 hour cycle. To change to a 2 hour cycle press DOWN ARROW"2:00" appears in the display. As soon as the controls are set, the motor drive lock will begin to close automatically and the "LOCK" indicator light will flash. DO NOT open the oven door while the light is flashing (it takes about 15 seconds for the over door to lock). "CLn" will appear in the display during the Self-Clean cycle and the "LOCK" light will glow until the Self-Cleaning cycle is complete or cancelled and the oven temperature has cooled.

When the Self-Clean cycle has completed, the time of the day or "End" will appear in the display window and the "Clean" and "LOCK" light will continue to glow. Once the over has cooled down for about 1 HOUR and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can be opened. If "End" is the display and the Clean indicator light remains ON, press CLEAR/OFF. The time of the day will appear in the display.

If it becomes necessary to stop or interrupt a Self-Cleaning cycle, press CLEAR/OFF. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 HOUR and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can be opened. Restart the Self-Clean cycle once all conditions have been corrected.

My kenmore W&R locked to start the cleaning process and never turned on, but now won't open. It's been 4 hours.


Verify that the Whirlpool oven is connected to its power source. The oven may sometimes lock down if experiencing a power surge or similar electrical problems. Additionally, check that a fuse hasn't been blown in your home's fuse box. Some older homes may not have the proper wiring to support a high-powered appliance such as a Whirlpool oven. If you are not sure if your wiring is sufficient, consult a local electrician.
  • Check to see if the Whirlpool oven's Control Lock has been turned on, a safety mechanism designed to lock the oven and disable its keypad and display controls. A padlock symbol will be displayed in the corner of the Whirlpool oven's front display panel if it is locked. The oven will not unlock itself on its own even if it is disconnected from its power source. To disable, press and hold the "3" button on the keypad for five seconds until the padlock icon disappears.
  • See if the Whirlpool oven is engaged in its self-cleaning cycle. During the self-cleaning process, the stove will lock its front door and will flash "OVEN LOCKED" on its front display. This is to prevent users from accidentally opening the oven and burning themselves during the high-heat segment in the cleaning process. If you must open the oven, first stop the process by pressing and holding the "OFF/CANCEL" button on the stove's control panel. If the oven remains locked, wait for the internal temperatures to decrease. The locking mechanism is temperature controlled and will not unlock until internal temperatures have cooled.
  • Contact Whirlpool's service department if your Whirlpool oven remains locked and you cannot troubleshoot it or open it. All Whirlpool self-cleaning ovens are covered for five years after the original purchase date. Call the warranty team for assistance by dialing toll-free (800) 253-1301 in the United States, or (800) 807-6777 in Canada. Be prepared to give the oven's model number and purchase date

    Can I clean a TruTemp oven with soap and water without ruining it?


    Hi,

    Yes you could clean it.

    Check few details :-

    t the bottom of this post you will find the web address for your ranges manual and the self clean system is in side this manual.

    How to self clean

    If your model has a door latch, never force the latch handle. Forcing the handle will damage the door lock mechanism.
    The oven door must be closed and all controls set correctly for the cycle to work properly.
    Before a Clean Cycle
    For the first self-clean cycle, we recommend
    venting your kitchen with an open window
    or using a ventilation fan or hood.
    Remove any broiler pan, broiler grid, all
    cookware, probe and any aluminum foil
    from the oven—they cannot withstand the
    high cleaning temperatures.
    NOTE:
    If your oven is equipped with nickel oven
    shelves, remove them before you begin
    the self-clean cycle.

    If your oven is equipped with gray
    porcelain-coated oven shelves, they may
    be left in the oven during the self-clean
    cycle.
    Soil on the front frame of the range and
    outside the gasket on the door will need to
    be cleaned by hand. Clean these areas with
    hot water, soap-filled scouring pads or
    cleansers such as Soft Scrub®. Rinse well
    with clean water and dry.
    Do not clean the gasket. The fiberglass
    material of the oven door gasket cannot
    withstand abrasion. It is essential for the
    gasket to remain intact. If you notice it
    becoming worn or frayed, replace it.
    Wipe up any heavy spillovers on the oven
    bottom.
    Make sure the oven light bulb cover is in
    place and the oven light is off.
    IMPORTANT: The health of some birds
    is extremely sensitive to the fumes given
    off during the self-cleaning cycle of any
    range. Move birds to another well ventilated
    room.

    NOTE: Use caution when opening the upper
    oven after the self-clean cycle has ended.
    The oven may still be hot.


    How to Set the Upper Oven for Cleaning
    On models with Gas/Control Lockout,
    touch and hold the Gas/Control Lockout
    pad for 3 seconds to turn it off.
    NOTE: The surface burners must be turned
    off prior to the self-clean start time.
    If your model has a latch, latch the door.
    Touch the Self Clean pad.
    Using the number pads, enter the
    desired clean time, if a time other than
    4 hours is needed.
    Clean cycle time is normally 4 hours. You can
    change the clean time to any time between
    3 hours and 5 hours, depending on how dirty
    your oven is.
    Touch the Start pad.
    On models without a door latch, the door
    locks automatically. The display will show
    the clean time remaining. It will not be
    possible to open the oven door until the
    temperature drops below the lock
    temperature and the LOCKED DOOR
    light goes off.
    The oven shuts off automatically when the
    clean cycle is complete.
    When the LOCKED DOOR light is off,
    slide the latch handle to the left as far
    as it will go and open the door. If your
    range does not have a latch, the door
    will unlock automatically.
    The words LOCK DOOR will flash and
    the oven control will signal if you set
    the clean cycle and forget to close the
    oven door or forget to latch the door
    on models with a latch.
    To stop a clean cycle, touch the Clear/Off
    pad. When the LOCKED DOOR light goes
    off, indicating the oven has cooled below
    the locking temperature, unlatch the door
    (on models with a latch) and open the door
    The oven door must be closed and all controls set correctly for the cycle to work properly.

    How to Delay the Start of Cleaning
    Make sure the clock shows the correct time
    of day.
    On models with Gas/Control Lockout,
    touch and hold the Gas/Control Lockout
    pad for 3 seconds to turn it off.
    NOTE: The surface burners must be turned
    off prior to the self-clean start time.
    If your model has a latch, latch
    the door.
    Touch the Self Clean pad.
    Using the number pads, enter the
    desired clean time.
    Touch the Delay Start pad. The earliest
    start time you can set will appear in the
    display.
    Using the number pads, enter the time
    of day you want the clean cycle
    to start.
    Touch the Start pad.
    On models without a door latch, the door
    locks automatically. The display will show the
    start time. It will not be possible to open the
    oven door until the temperature drops below
    the lock temperature and the LOCKED DOOR
    light goes off.
    The oven shuts off automatically when the
    clean cycle is complete.
    When the LOCKED DOOR light is off,
    slide the latch handle to the left as far
    as it will go and open the door. If your
    range does not have a latch, the door
    will unlock automatically.
    The words LOCK DOOR will flash and the
    oven control will signal if you set the clean
    cycle and forget to close the oven door or
    forget to latch the door on models with
    a latch.
    To stop a clean cycle, touch the Clear/Off
    pad
    . When the LOCKED DOOR light goes
    off, indicating the oven has cooled below
    the locking temperature, unlatch the door
    (on models with a latch) and open the door.


    After a Clean Cycle
    You may notice some white ash in the oven.
    Wipe it up with a damp cloth after the
    oven cools.
    If white spots remain, remove them with a
    soap-filled scouring pad and rinse thoroughly
    with a vinegar and water mixture.
    These deposits are usually a salt residue
    that cannot be removed by the clean cycle.
    If the oven is not clean after one clean cycle,
    repeat the cycle.
    You cannot set the oven for cooking until
    the oven is cool enough for the door to
    unlock.
    While the oven is self-cleaning, you can
    touch the Clock pad to display the time
    of day. To return to the clean countdown,
    touch the Cooking Time pad.
    If the shelves become hard to slide, apply a
    small amount of vegetable oil or cooking oil
    to a paper towel and wipe the edges of the
    oven shelves with the paper towel.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Door locked after shutting down cleaning cycle earlier than


    The oven door lock needs approximately 1 hour to cool down before the oven door can be opened after a self cleaning cycle has finished. If the lock does not open after the oven has cooled down, you can try....1) Unplugging the range or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Plug the range back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and try moving the door lock lever or opening the door. 2) Set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for 15 minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever or opening the door.

    Most ranges today use 3 different types of door locks...one is a solenoid controlled lock ( you hear a loud buzz noise when setting or unlocking the lock and has a arm that you must move to set the lock )...another is a heat sensitive lock ( has a arm that you must move to lock and un-lock, makes no noises and has a spring that slowly moves to lock the door will the oven is heating up )...Some locks are motorized ( no handle to move, the motor locks the door by it's self when you set the range for self clean )... If the motorized and heat sensitive locks fails to open after the self clean cycle, you must access the lock and move it yourself to open the door. On the free standing ranges, most times you must lift the cook top to access the lock mechanism. On built in ovens, the oven must be pulled out to remove the top access panel to get at the lock mechanism. Some build in ovens can have the control console removed to access the lock system. On the heat sensitive style of lock, there are no electrical parts to operate the lock, usually you will need to replace the lock. On the motorized style of lock, you will have to use a ohm/volt meter to test why the motor will not work. On the solenoid style of lock, the solenoid is often mounted on the back of the range and can be accessed by removing the rear panel, some may be mounted at the front, such as in a built in oven. The failure of the solenoid style of lock is normally caused by a bad lock solenoid. In order to get your door open, you must operate the door latch mechanism manually. Unplug or remove power from the range. Take the rear cover off the range. Locate the door latch assembly and operate it manually and open your door. Then check continuity of the solenoid. Some of the latch assemblies have micro switches to supply power also. You may need to check them. You should be able to get the door open and use your range until you can get a tech to repair if you can not repair yourself.

    If you've interrupted the clean cycle or have accidentally set the clean cycle with the oven door open, the latch may have engaged and now the door can't be closed because it will hit the latch. There may be a door activated* switch on the front face of the oven. In this case you may need to manually press that door switch with your finger while at the same time canceling the clean cycle to get the latch to retract so the door can close fully again.

    *On -some- Frigidaire built ranges, the switch is located behind the right hand side panel and activated by the right hand door hinge. On this model, the side panel may need to be removed to access a malfunctioning door switch.

    GE Double Oven doors locked and circuit not responding


    Hi, well this is a brain tester!! I think you need really to look at this in a simple way. Check to see where the door lock wires come from first? Find where the mains power comes into? then if it goes directly to the main control board then check to see if there is any power getting through the board to the otherside where the wires disapear into the cooker. I would consider checking the control board for any signs of burn damage and then look at the clock unit to as these are normally the main components in the cooker that will stop it from working.
    Good luck,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    Dead Whirlpool Double Oven


    This happened to us the first time we used the self-cleaning feature. The repairman said we had to replace the whole electronic panel -- but when he put in the new panel it didn't work either. It turned out he just needed to replace the oven shutdown thermal fuse I believe. We finally got up enough courage to try the self-cleaning again and the exact thing happened. The door is locked and the electronic panel is dead again. So when we get it fixed we will never use the self-clean again.

    Self-cleaning gas oven


    Door lock motor has probably failed.....Self clean on many
    ovens can be a self destruct mode. Door latch motors, sensor
    probes and even the electronic controls can be destroyed by
    this operation. On many freestanding stoves the lock motor is located in the right rear (looking from the front) with a long rod connected to the lock. remove the motor and unhook the rod from the motor cam. Sometimes bending a coat hangar into a hook and sliding from the right side into the lock you can unlock the door.
