All you need to do is to turn the oven up,very high and the self clean treatment allows the 'crud' to 'incinerate' and fall to the oven floor
sel clean sides are not very self cleaning though!

Is the oven self cleaning and if so how does it work?


if its self cleanin it will say right on it "self cleaning"

self cleaning ovens do exactly that they clean themselves no harsh chemicals (oven cleaner foam) are needed to dissolve the baked on cooking goo that builds up inside ovens , although if one uses a foil liner in bottom then one might never need to self clean it , but some models cant use liners due to convection fans air flow getting in the way ,
self cleaning ovens have the ability to get very hot (500 degrees plus) no one should ever open a oven in cleaning cycle as this hi temp can spontaneously combust to ashes your hair/clothing never the less burn the hand that opened it severely(most lock the door for safety) all that needs done after cycle, is ashes need wiped out with damp towel next day after cleaning cycle is done and oven cooled off completely , im waiting on the day they make one that sweeps its self out into the dust bin ,(not yet )

Oven will not unlock after self cleaning


User manual says that the oven must cool off. I am sure this is not the case. Try starting the oven self clean function, and then clear/off to stop the function. Since the oven is cool, perhaps the oven will unlock.

Finally, you could try turning off the circuit breaker and then back on to see if it unlocks - unfortunately you will have to reprogram everything. All else fails, call a technician.

Self cleaning oven won't start


Hi bstetson328 - Try resetting the range by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately 30 seconds and turn on the unit. Select the self clean option, if it does not turn on then the temperature had tripped the internal sensor of the unit and needs to be reset. This usually has to be done by a professional since the back panel needs to be taken off and the power reset inside. Possibly the unit may have a communication problem with the EOC and I would suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately.

The LOC on messsage appears on the screen when we go toturn the oven on. NEED the OVEN. What could we do to fi it?


The control lock has been activated. This feature is useful when you are cleaning the panel so that you don't accidently start the oven or the self-cleaning cycle. Try pressing Bake and Broil Hi/Lo together for 2 seconds (or a bit longer). SF should appear in the display. Then press Self Clean and Start. (When you press Self Clean the LOC message should disappear.)

Manuals for most GE appliances are available here: http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/ . Enter the model number and click Submit. The direct link to the manual for the JTP18WWWW is: http://products.geappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=981140017.PDF .

I hope this helps.

Hi, is this oven self cleaning or can I use chemical cleaners to get the oven clean, especially around the fan? B x


Hi, W/D here.
Ovens just love for you to use the self cleaning feature on them. This gives them all kinds of excuses to lock up, fail components and have other components become "unpredictable". Self cleaning takes the oven to extremely high temperatures to incinerate the baking residue. This also uses a high amount of energy. My best advice is to clean the oven with the spray cleaner whenever possible, and to avoid the self cleaning feature altogether. Use normal precautions with the spray, following the directions on the can. This will do the job just as well, and takes much less time. Just make sure that the product that you use says "safe for self cleaning ovens", and you'll be fine.
Best regards, --W/D--

The circut breaker on the rear of the stove trips and must be reset every time the oven self cleanui=ing is engaged (Model # PLES399EC). How can this be fixed or prevented?


Hi,

The best thing to do is not use your self cleaning feature....

Whoever invented that has caused way more problems then it solved...

It is a featured designed pruely to sell product because people are inherently lazy and because it burns up good products and then they get to sell more...

Oven does not work after self clean


Hello,

Sorry to hear you`ve had an ongoing issue like this. Can you tell me what the model number is of your oven ? Can you also maybe touch on what step`s have been taken in the past when this occur`s ?

Depending on the model and vintage of your oven, it likely has tripped the hi-limit thermostat. The good new`s is it is typically easy to reset as it is a manual reset type hi-limit as opposed to one time non-reset. Also this hi-limit is either located on side, back, or behind the grill between the oven door and control panel/fascia. Let`s hope for the later.

**Always shut off power to the unit before performing any service/repairs**

If it is indeed just a tripped hi-limit as I suspect, ( it is common after self clean cycles on many ranges/ovens, not just Thermador ) I have a few tip`s and suggestion`s after you`re up and running, but we`ll cross that bridge when we get there.

I`ll watch for your reply. Good luck.

Hotpoint Self Cleaning Oven


the oven has a feature where you set the time for it to begin cleaning and the time for it to end cleaning.
Next to the clock in the middle of the back are two dials. The top one is the start time, the bottom one is the end time.
I suggest 2 hours to allow a good cleaning.
The locked light will turn off when the cleaning is done, allowing you to open the locking lever.
