My whirlpool SF265LXTS oven turns on properly, but the oven itself isn't getting hot. The gas stove top and broiler both work fine.

It sounds like you might have a clogged burner plate or manifold. You should call a certified gas repair service. This could be very dangerous, even deadly.

I have no owner's manual and need to know how to clean a "self-cleaning" over.

Manuals for many GE appliances are available here: . You will need the model number and there is a guide to find the plaque at the site. Most ranges will have the plaque under the left front burner, on the frame behind the oven door, on the frame behind the drawer or on the left leg behind the drawer or kickplate.

General cleaning procedure for self-cleaning: first use hot soapy water (non-abrasive cleaner, not an oven cleaner) to clean the frame around the oven and the oven door itself. Also clean large spills (acidic and sugary spills can damage the surface of the oven). Remove all of the racks, foil, pans and the broiler pan from inside the oven. Close the oven. Ventilate the kitchen well. Then it depends on the oven type.

If you have a touch pad, press the Clean button and adjust the time for the cleaning cycle (usually with the +/- touch pads). Then press Start. Press Cancel to stop the cycle. The oven will automatically lock and remain locked until the oven cools down after the cleaning cycle. See the documentation for timed cleaning. If you have a dual oven, you will need to press the Oven button for the one you want to clean.

If you have an older range, push the latch to the right and set the Oven cycle dial to Clean. After the oven has cooled, turn the oven cycle dial to Off and push the latch back to the left.

I hope this helps.

Actually I have a dual.....I started self cleaning about 1 hour ago now I have to leave and there was a small and wanted to turn it offf so I did and now the door is still lock and it says hot.....but that...

When ovens self clean, the temp rises past the highest temp you can set it at. It is burning everything off, to clean the oven remember. Yes, it is safe to leave. The ovens have a safety, which will shut the oven off if the temp gets too high.

Can the things that sit on top of the gas burners be put in the electric oven and be clean with the oven cleaning setting?

No. The self clean temperature (about 900°F) will burn the paint off, and may deform the grates. They are cast, but could still be damaged. Spray them with oven cleaner, then soak them in hot soapy water, brush them with a good stiff scrub brush and rinse thoroughly.

My oven won't heat

First you will need to verify if the igniter is coming on for the oven burner when the oven is turned on. You will need to remove the oven bottom cover. There is usually two screws at the back bottom of the oven compartment that holds the bottom on. If there are no screws then it should just lift out. You may need to slide the bottom away from you then lift from the back. You will need to remove the oven racks to make enough room to lif the bottom out. Once removed you should be able to see the burner(you may also need to remove a heat spreader on the burner). Now turn on the oven and watch for the hot surface igniter to start to glow. If it does then you will need to make sure the gas orfice and venturri for the burner are not plugged with debris. You can use a small can of compressed air to try and dislodge any debris. Then give the oven gas valve a light tap with a screwdriver or a wrench. Oven gas valve is usually located at the bottom of the oven. Remove the bottom storage compartment to reach it. If you tap it and the burner comes on there may have just been debris in the valve and you may have cleared it. Then turn the oven off and back on completely several times. If the burner comes back on you should be ok if it does not then it could be a weak hot surface igniter or a bad olven gas control valve. Now going back to the start if the igniter does not come on you will need to verify if the igniter is getting voltage. If it is then test the igniter with a ohm meter. The reading should usually be between 500 to 700 ohms. A common problem with hot surface igniters is that they will crack. Examine the igniter for any visible cracks. If the igniter is not getting voltage then you will need to verify that all wires are properly connected and none have come loose. Look for any melted wires from the self cleaning process. You may need to dis-assemble the back of the range to see if any wires have come loose or melted. Now I need to stress to you that safety is important. Be very careful performing these procedures. You can get shocked or possible burned.

Oven lights, but temp does not get above 100

The gas burner is broken. There is an upper burner and a lower burner. In-order for both burners to turn on, both must be working to let the gas turn on. If one burner element is out the oven wont get hot just warm.

Top burners often wont light if oven is already lit

I have fix that problem before, the oven heat is soficating the top burners, you will have to adjust top burners with the oven on, so that they will light by them selfs.Or put a shield under the cook top section on the back, so that the heat will not come to the burners where they get the oxigen.

Inside the oven door there are some stains from liquid spill that went through the vent, how can I clean it.

If your oven is self-cleaning, consult the owner's manual for instructions on how to use this feature. The self-cleaning feature works by heating the interior of the oven to a temperature so hot that it incinerates the residue inside the oven. Normally, it is not a good idea to clean the interior of a self-cleaning oven with a spray cleaner; however, refer to your owner's manual or contact the manufacturer of your oven for further information.

To clean a non-self-cleaning oven, use one of the many oven cleaners that are available at grocery and hardware stores.
