How do I get the door open after self cleaning and what do I push to self cleaning


Hi, Some ovens are self cleaning During the cleaning process, the oven heats up to a temperature of 900 degrees Fahrenheit. The extreme heat cooks off food and spills inside the oven, leaving ash that can easily be wiped out. The oven door locks while it is cleaning to prevent the door from being opened. Self cleaning ovens are better insulated than regular ovens to keep the extreme heat inside.

Instructions

Read the owner's manual that came with your oven before you perform self cleaning. Although all self cleaning ovens work basically the same way, there may be slight variations for some manufacturers and models.

Take out the oven racks. You need to clean the oven racks by hand, and then put them back in when the oven is done cleaning.

Wipe up any spills and messes inside the oven first, using warm water and a mild soap. Ovens smoke more during cleaning when there is food inside. Wash the inside of the oven door as well. Do not scrub the door gaskets, just gently wipe them off. Damaging the gaskets prevents the oven from sealing.

Lock your oven door manually if your model does not lock it automatically when you clean.

Open a window near the oven for ventilation. There is a certain amount of smoke when you clean the oven. The dirtier the oven is, the more smoke is created.

Turn the control on your oven to "clean" and set the timer for 2 to 5 hours depending on how dirty your oven is, and what the manufacturer recommends.

Wait for the cleaning to finish and the oven to cool before opening door. When oven is fully cooled wipe up any ash inside. If your oven is not completely clean, next time set the timer for longer. If your oven is spotless you might want to see if you can get away with a shorter cleaning time.

Tips & Warnings

Because self cleaning ovens are better insulated, they are more energy efficient when used for cooking. However, if you run the self cleaning feature on your oven more than once a month, you offset the savings you realized. With light to moderate use your oven should be able to be cleaned every one to three months.


Save on the electricity used with a self cleaning oven by cleaning the oven right after use at a high temperature. For example, if you set your oven to clean after making French fries at 450 degrees, it takes less energy to get the oven up to the required 900 degrees.


If you have pet birds, take them out of the house before cleaning your oven. Over heated cooking surfaces, oils and fats, can create fumes that are harmful for a bird's delicate respiratory system.

Hope it helped.

My oven door is locked. It is not cleaning. I have tried turning off the breaker. help i have a turkey to put in the oven. Is there a sequence of buttons I can push to unlock it?


Hello,

Here are some solution on how to unlock the door of your oven ans do self cleaning below.

IF you can locate the model number tag (bottom left of door opening) you can look up the manual at www.geappliances.com
The only button on your stove that should make the door lock would be the clean button (self clean model) if that is pressed simply hit the clear/off or cancel key and wait for the door to unlock. IF the self clean option ran for an hour or so, you will have to wait for the oven to cool down before the lock can unlock (safety feature).
hope this helps you out please rate this solution it helps get better results for our customers like you

    Are there any special steps to self clean the oven?


    Hi,

    Please follow the steps:

    Run the self-cleaning cycle for your oven as often as you need to. It reduces almost any spill to a powdery gray pile of ash that can easily be wiped away at the end of the oven's cleaning cycle using a damp cloth. Make sure you have a window open during the process, to help keep smoke from sticking to walls and your ceiling. You may need to wash down the oven door and frame with a gentle cleaner to remove soil residue. Don't scrub the rubbery gasket that seals the oven door. Just rinse it with dish soap and then water. Don't use abrasives, or oven cleaners on the interior of the oven.

    Thanks

    Since we bought our Maytag Gemini 9 years ago, every time I use the oven cleaning function, I get an f9-4 error and cannot clean my oven. Is there anything I can do to bypass this? Its just too expensive...


    Oven Cleaner can be used instead of letting the ovens "Self Clean". This error report you are getting could be a couple of things, 1 the oven latching mechanism may have gone on the blink (this is the part that locks the door during the cleaning process to prevent any opening of the door during cleaning) 2 it could be that the oven will not reach the self cleaning temp. any longer (this temp is much higher than the hi broil) Good Luck

    How long does the oven take for the self-cleaning cycle?


    Most self clean cycles take 4 hrs.The oven is gradually heated up to 950 degrees F which takes up to 1 hr and after the 4 hrs is up it takes some time for the oven to cool down before the door will unlatch at below 550 degrees. You can self clean your oven 2-3 times for the price of a can of oven cleaner and without the elbow grease involved. You should not use harsh oven cleaners on the soft porcelain on your oven liner or it could be damaged. Before you put your oven into self clean you should wipe out any excess spillage with a damp soapy cloth and after cleaning you wipe away the ash with a damp cloth. If you do not want the oven racks to take on a blueish to ugly gray tint do not leave them in the oven during the clean cycle.

    Oven Door Locked


    the oven door does lock during self clean, otherwise it will not work. however, the door is supposed to unlock after the oven has cooled. if it is still locked, turn the oven to self clean and wait about a minute and then hit cancel and see if the door unlocks. if not, there may be a probelm with the door lock mechanism.

    Cant unlock self clean oven door


    Door lock motor has probably failed.....Self clean on many ovens can be a self destruct mode. Door latch motors, sensor probes and even the electronic controls can be destroyed by this operation. Suggest oven cleaner method.

    Self cleaning


    You can go to the Maytag web site and download the manual.  www.maytag.com, or go to http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/8113p293.pdf
    and download the manual CAUTION 
    • It is normal for parts of the ovens to become hot during a self-clean cycle. 
    • To prevent damage to oven doors, do not attempt to open the doors when LOCK is displayed. 
    • Avoid touching doors, windows or oven vent area during 
    a clean cycle. 
    Do not use commercial oven cleaners on the oven finish or around any part of the ovens.  They will damage the finish or parts. 
    Do not leave baking/pizza stone in the oven during self-clean. 

    The self-clean cycle uses above-normal cooking temperatures 
    to automatically clean the oven interior. 
    The oven should be cleaned regularly by wiping up spillovers 
    to prevent excessive smoke and flare-ups.  Do not allow a 
    heavy build-up of soil to accumulate in the oven. 
    During the cleaning process, the kitchen should be well 
    ventilated to get rid of normal odors associated with cleaning. 

    Before Self-Cleaning 
    1. Turn off the oven light before cleaning as the light may burn out during the clean cycle. 
    2. Remove broiler pan, all pans, and oven racks from the oven.  The oven racks will discolor and may not slide easily after a self-clean cycle if they are not removed. 
    3. Clean oven frame, door frame (area outside of gasket, and around the opening in the door gasket) with a nonabrasive 
    cleaner such as Bon Ami* or detergent and water.  The self-cleaning process does not clean these areas.  They should be cleaned to prevent soil from baking on during the clean 
    cycle.  (The gasket is the seal around the oven door and window.) 
    4. To prevent damage, do not clean or rub the gasket around the oven door.  The gasket is designed to seal in heat during the clean cycle. 
    5. Wipe up excess grease or spillovers from the oven bottom. This prevents excessive smoking, flare-ups or flaming during the clean cycle. 
    6. Wipe up sugary and acidic spillovers such as sweet potatoes, tomato, or milk-based sauces. Porcelain enamel is acid-resistant, not acid-proof.  The porcelain finish may discolor if acidic or sugary spills are not wiped up before a self-clean cycle. 

    Important: 
    • Oven temperature must be below 400° F to program a clean cycle. 
    Only one oven can be cleaned at a time. 
    • Both oven doors lock when either oven is being cleaned. 
    To set Self-Clean: 
    1. Close the oven door. 
    2. Press the Clean pad. 
        • CLEAN flashes. 
        • SET and UPPER or LOWER flash in the display. 
    3. Press the Autoset pad. 
        • “MEd” (Medium Soil, 3 hours) is displayed. 
    4. Press the Autoset pad to scroll through the self-cleaning settings. 
         “HVy” (Heavy Soil, 4 hours) 
         “MEd” (Medium soil, 3 hours) 
         “LITE” ( Light Soil, 2 hours) 
    Choosing the soil level of the oven automatically programs the self-cleaning time. 
    5. After four seconds, the oven will start cleaning. 
        • If the door is not closed, beeps will sound and ‘door’ will display.         If the door is not closed within 30 seconds, the self-cleaning       operation will be canceled and the display will return to the time of day. 
        • CLEAN will appear in the display. 
        • LOCK will flash in the display.  Once the door locks, LOCK will
          remain steady. 
        • The cleaning time will start counting down in the display.
