Question about Maytag Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

My self-clean Maytag electic stove (7 to 8 years old) will not clean because when you set clean on the touch pad the automatic door locking device moves to lock the door, and does pull the door in briefly, but the lock operation fails. The stove display flashes "door" and beeps about 12 times. I've tried repeatedly. When I hold the oven door open, push in the door close sensor on the right, and push "clean", a little motor does move the locking latch in a full orbital cycle. The latch device is not loose,and the latch hole in the door appears undamaged. Your advice? Thanks

I fixed the problem simply by pressing the clean button when the oven was warm, not cold.
For some reason not explained in the instruction manual, the oven door safety locked properly and automatically when the oven was warm. I don't know why, but I'll take it!!

Make sure you have everything out of the oven, including the oven racks.

1. Press SELF CLEAN.
2. Press the TEMP/TIME "+" or "-" arrow pads to enter the desired self-clean cycle.
3. Press START.
The oven door will automatically lock. The DOOR LOCKED and CLEAN indicator lights will be
displayed.
4. When the self-clean cycle is complete and the oven cools, the DOOR LOCKED and CLEAN
indicator lights will turn off.

Recommended times are 2 hours 30 minutes for light soil and 4 hours 30 minutes for heavy soil.

If your oven has a HI and LO self clean time, HI is 4 hours 30 minutes and LO is 3 hours 30 minutes.

It is also recommended that you remove anything plastic from the top of the stove during cleaning.

How do I set the oven to self clean


The oven door must be closed and all controls set correctly for the cycle to work properly. After a Clean Cycle You may notice some white ash in the oven. Wipe it up with a damp cloth after the oven cools. If white spots remain, remove them with a soap- filled scouring pad and rinse thoroughly with a vinegar and water mixture. These deposits are usually a salt residue that cannot be removed by the clean cycle. If the oven is not clean after one clean cycle, repeat the cycle.
You cannot set the oven for cooking until
the oven is cool enough for the door to unlock.
While the oven is self-cleaning, you can
touch the TIMER/CLOCK pad to display the time of day.
To return to the clean
countdown, touch the COOKING TIME pad.
If the shelves become hard to slide,
apply a small amount of vegetable oil or cooking oil to a paper towel and wipe the edges of the oven shelves with the paper towel.

Using the self-cleaning oven.

How to Delay the Start of Cleaning

Make sure the clock shows the correct time of day. If your model has a latch, latch the door. Touch the SELF CLEAN pad. Using the + or or the number pads, enter the desired clean time. Touch the DELAY START pad. The earliest start time you can set will appear in the display. Using the + or or the number pads, enter the time of day you want the clean cycle to start. Touch the START pad. On models without a door latch, the door locks automatically. The display will show the start time. It will not be possible to open the oven door until the temperature drops below the lock temperature and the LOCKED DOOR light goes off. The oven shuts off automatically when the clean cycle is complete. When the LOCKED DOOR light is off, slide the latch handle to the left as far as it will go and open the door. If your range does not have a latch, the door will unlock automatically. n The words LOCK DOOR will flash and the oven control will signal if you set the clean cycle and forget to close the oven door or forget to latch the door on models with a latch. n To stop a clean cycle, touch the CLEAR/OFF pad. When the LOCKED DOOR light goes off indicating the oven has cooled below the locking temperature, unlatch the door (on models with a latch) and open the door.

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.
