    how to clean a self cleaning oven

  • Anonymous Mar 31, 2014

    I am not able to push in & turn the oven temp knob in a CLOCKWISE direction to "Clean" as instructed in order to clean the oven - it only turns counterclockwise, & I can't complete the process to start the self-cleaning cycle because of that.

I had this same problem with mine (still posted under unsolved) This is the simpler model with the old turn style knob and the lever you slide over to lock the door for cleaning What I think (keep in mind I know little about ovens, more about cars) is that the switch that tells the oven the door is latched is staying engaged, and this is part of the lever mechanism. I cleaned and lubed this mechanism (obviously I would guess you want to use a food safe lubricant) and then moved the lever several times with the oven on so I could see if it turned on. After a few tries the cleaning light went off and the oven light came on. No, its not really a technical answer, all indications to me where that the problem was in the switch which is part of the latch mechanism. Good luck

Check to see if you have it in the lock mode. Press bake and broil pads together for 2 seconds until SF shows in the display. Then press the self clean pad, the display will show loc off or loc on. Toggle to loc off by pressing the self clean pad and press start. Try this first. Catriver...post back.

Self cleaning lock handle does not unlock


Unplug power, wait one hower and plug cord back.

That should reset the oven, if it does not, the oven timer control is clearly defective and should be replaced , you find parts here.

I can 't get the door open


Self clean oven I assume. Look under the cover on top, and follow instructions for turning on and off self clean mode. If this does not work, and the door handle will not move, call a tech. to come. Do not try to force the handle. It will cost more to fix.

Turned on self clean on my GE Spectra JBP24B0B4WH Range


Hello Cliff Hendershot,

One USA manual ... said turn off power for 10 minutes
(sounds reasonable after looking up cost of control board)...

USA websites are not responding to your number.
Closest I could get was to a $78 (us dollar) control panel

>> ((IMPORTANT PART ... has a video that shows repair))
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/ge-oven-control-t09-wb27t11312-ap5177950.html

~~

I could NOT get a good READ on your JBP24... page 8
So I attached a JBP19 (below)... Page 12.

The most COMMON reason to FAIL after a cleaning cycle
is your OVEN CONTROL is "off normal"

(You still do not have your MANUAL MODE restored).

Normal = "AUTOMATIC" LIGHT Off (NOT LIT)

Check your "oven controls"

else

Oven elements do break during routine use...
Check both roast & bake elements for continuity.

DO NOT KNOW HOW TO USE SELF CLEAN ON OVEN?


Hi April,

Without a model number, I'm shooting in the dark but I'll give you basic instructions that fit for most ovens, OK?

First off the door has to be locked PRIOR to cleaning. Look around the top of the oven door, there should be a handle (for mechanical models). Rotate this handle from the left to the right to lock it. If there's no handle, that means your oven locks the door by itself when "Clean Mode" is selected.

Now, at the control panel, select "Clean". At this point, you may have options on the length of time it should clean, select 3 hours and hit "Start".

There ya go! Hope this helps. If not, DON'T RATE THIS SOLUTION! Just write back and provide the model number, I'll give you exact instructions with that. Deal? Cool.

I don't remember how to use the self cleaning feature


Remove everything from the inside of the oven, lock the door if your model has a latch handle that you move from left to right to lock the door, then set the oven selector switch to clean.

Blinking auto self clean light


There is probably a switch attached to the oven locking mechanism that need to be replaced. I had a similar problem on my GE electric oven and it worked for me.

Self clean light blinks, oven does not work


You were right. The locking mechanism switch somehow became jammed and the oven thought the door was locked, even though I could open the door. I didn't know if I was supposed to take the top off and moving the lever back and forth did not help. Finally I turned the oven on and just kind of jiggled the latch in the unlocked position. I kind of moved it back and forth furiously and the cleaning light stopped blinking and the oven light came on. I'm glad it is working now, but I will be manually cleaning my oven from now on! Thanks for your help.
