That's fairly typical but I would suggest removing the shelves and cleaning those with oven cleaner if they need it at all. Expect the door to remain locked for additional hours for safety.
The temperature rises to > 900 degrees F and is necessary to start the catalytic process that consumes the crud.
Sorry I didn't see your message earlier-

How to use a self clean magic chef oven bought 24 years ago


Self Clean Magic Chef Ovens, clean by Nuking the baked on grime etc... As I recall, invoking the self clean (some models will allow you to specify a time - 2 hours for light cleaning to 4 hours for heavy), will ramp the oven temperature up to as high as 900 degrees F (as opposed to the mid 300 norm). YOu probably want to remove any racks etc before hand, and wipe up crumbs etc...

Once completed, and cooled, wipe out the ash that is left over, witha damp cloth.

I have a majic chef oven, when i turn it on it beeps and flashes


Self clean on some older models can cause some issues. F-3 is a sensor error. This could have been damaged by high heat or in some cases if the sensor is ok, the control doesn't know it's there.

Missing my manual


I suggest you read this link before you use the self clean cycle. http://www.fixya.com/support/t241114-oven_will_not_heat#SameProblemContinued
I used mine for the first time two days ago on model KEBC147 and it will not heat now.
You might not want to try self-clean unless you have time to call for repair afterwards before
using your oven again.

Very disappointed in KitchenAid in Texas ...

Self cleaning oven


Press the cleaning button and then the up arrow that regulates the temp as if you are baking I think it reads 300 and then it starts. This is for Kenmore self cleaning
