I have a ken more elite double oven. I set it for 425 for 30 min and was to turn it back. I am cooking a chicken. I didn't have my glasses on and accidentally turned the flex and clean on. Now


sure you'll be able to open it but your chicken will be burnt to a crisp. actually, it may not if you just hit cancel right away after starting the self clean feature.

How can i quit cleaning oven?


During the self clean cycle, oven temp will exceed 900 degrees F. At these temps, if you opened the door, the food inside would immediately catch on fire when the supply of oxygen hit it. When you turn your self clean cycle off, the oven door will remain locked until the internal temp drop below aprox. 550 degrees F for your safety. Once the oven cool below this temp, you will be able to start using the bake or broil again. This should be a Fix-Ya for your oven.

Self cleaning


Maryann, try shutting the breaker off for 5 minutes and see if the door unlocks. Im assuming the oven has cooled down. If that doesn't work try holding the cancel and broil pads for 3 seconds. This will put it into the quik test mode. Once in this mode press the clean button. This should toggle between lock and unlock. Don't know if this will work for you but it's worth a try..Catriver...post back.
