Re: how to use self cleaning oven
When using the self-cleaning feature on your oven, the temperature within the oven rises to an extremely high temperature, usually around1000 degrees. The oven will remain at this temperature for a set periodof time, often from 1 to 3 hours.
Self-cleaning ovens differ from traditional ovens in that they require a timer to control the amount oftime that the self-cleaning feature operates. They also require extrathermostatic controls to control the extremely high temperatures.
While the mechanisms inside aself-cleaning oven are quite complex, the concept behind aself-cleaning oven is fairly straight forward. The extremely hightemperatures incinerate dirt and debris from your oven, thus cleaningit for future use.
Safety is very important when using yourself-cleaning feature. You must ensure that the oven door is completelyclosed while the self-cleaning cycle is running. 1000 degreetemperatures are obviously extremely dangerous. Self-cleaning ovenswill come equipped with a secure oven door latch for this reason.
The crucial door locking system isinitially engaged to signal that you are ready to use the self-cleaningfeature. When the oven reaches a certain temperature, the door locksystem will ensure that the oven door cannot be opened until the cycleis complete and the temperature has returned to a manageable level.The result is a clean oven without the use of harsh oven cleaners orabrasives.
REMEMBER YOU ARE WORKING WITH 220 VOLTS - USE EXTREME CAUTION!!!

Re: how to use self cleaning oven
If your oven has liners with a grey surface with black speckles,
these are self cleaning, to activate switch on the cleaning cycle or
Switch the oven on, crank the temperature control to max and when its up to temp leave it to cook itself for 30 / 45 mins.
Turn it off and leave for at least 2 hours to cool down before removing / touching.

Try putting it back in self clean. Listen to see if it locks. then cancel the self clean. It could be the self clean lock motor has gone bad. The lock hook can be moved to unlock the door by inserting a stiff wire like a coat hanger between the door and the oven and moving the latch over to unlock the door.
it is locked the leaver has become detached from the door latch and even though the leaver moves the lock part doesn't have you tried it lately push in on the door and try to move the leaver if that doesn't work get a wire coat hanger make a Small hook and from the left hand side see if you can snag the hook and pull it over ive done that before theopen end of the hook should point up start just abve the door gasket about halfway over well i cant reamber which way the latch moves but im sure you can figure it out push slighty in on the door after you hook the latch but try to open it fist some have asensor that wont let the oven door open till its cool enough to be safe let me know
I had to clean mine the old fashioned way -oven cleaner and elbow grease. Fortunately the oven comes apart in ways I never imagined so I could remove, for instance, the sides and bottom and clean them without bending over with my head in the oven!
