Re: I can't get my self cleaning oven to clean
Usually when you push the button it will do the rest.you should find the door locked and it should do its job. unplug it and wait 5 minutes and plug it in again see if the door dosent unlock so you can start the cleaning process all over

The model is GGE350LWS00; the self-clean cycle selection is a bit different for this Whirlpool double oven range. Make sure that the oven isn't above 400F before starting the self-clean cycle. Close both oven doors. Press Precise Clean for the appropriate oven; only one oven can be cleaned at a time. For the upper oven, the button is next to the Toast button. The lower oven's Precise Clean is directly below the one for the upper oven. (If the oven doors are open, you will see Door. If the doors are not closed within thirty seconds, the Self-clean will be canceled.) Then press Presets (to the right of the zero button in the number pad) to select the type/ length of the cleaning cycle. You only need to press this once if the default Medium cleaning cycle is appropriate. Press Presets additional times if you need to cycle through to the Heavy or Light cleaning options. The cleaning cycle should start 4 seconds after you last press Presets. If the door locks do not properly engage, the self-clean cycle will be canceled. If the lock mechanism is broken or not getting the message from the control board, you may need check the lock, the wiring or control board to determine the source of the issue.

I see that you would like to operate self-clean on your Frigidaire range and you do not have the manual. Typically, to start self-clean you would need to push the button labeled "Self-clean" and make sure there is nothing inside the oven before starting a self-clean cycle. Also before starting self-clean close the door because of the temperatures that are created within the oven the door needs to be closed and locked. I hope this has been beneficial. -Matt
This happens with a lot of ovens. It's because the mechanism that locks the door is stuck. When the door doesn't lock you can't do a self clean. They don't want you to be able to open the door while the oven is 800 degrees? or so. Look just below the little button that gets pushed in when the door is closed, upper left, and you should see a vertical slot. This is where a little lever comes out and grabs the slot on the door. There is a microswitch inside that tells the oven if the lever has come out or not. Your lever is stuck.
You can test this in a totally dangerous way by opening the door, holding in the button, and turning on the self cleaning. If everything is correct you will see the lever come out to grab and lock the door, but your's won't because it's stuck. Jiggle it or push on it or pull on it with needle nosed pliers. It frees up pretty easily. But when it does, the oven will go into self clean, which you don't want it to do with the door open, so turn it off, close the door and try again. It should work fine.
most ovens have one button clean cycle . remove racks and close door push the clean button and it should lock the dooor and clean for 2.5 hr . then cool down befor you can get back in . if this does not work i will need a model # to help you more. mm
you can try and hold the door closed by hand and push the self cleaning button.and it might work
if that does nothing for you there might be a problem with the door switch.
the other likely problem is a bad clock timer/main control panel
need to know what model and brand you have. most newer ovens only need you to remove the racks, then push the button for self clean, push the button to allow about a 3 hour clean cycle and it should then go into a lock the door mode. after the time is up it will need to cool down and then you should be able to open the latch and wipe out any burnt residues.
Hi, In order to unlock the oven you need to perform the following: Look for a manual lever to unlock the oven. If there is one, it will probably swing back and forth horizontally, just below the upper edge of the oven door. Swing the locking lever, if one is present, all the way to the left. This should unlock the oven. If there is no manual lever to unlock the oven, it may be unlocked using push-button controls. Check to see if the oven is in a self-cleaning cycle, or has just completed a self-cleaning cycle. If so, the door will unlock automatically once the oven has finished the cleaning cycle and cooled completely, which may take several hours. You cannot unlock the oven before it has cooled. Unlock the "Clean/Off" button. Depending on the brand and model of your oven, the button may display both of these designations or just one. If your oven door is locked, but the oven is not warm and is not in a cleaning cycle, unlock it by pressing and holding the "Clean/Off" button.

look for the door/ light switch (the door would normally have this pushed in),and press and hold it in, tricking the unit into thinking the door is actually closed. press the clean button then, see what happens. it should try to close itself entirely and then press the cancel button, it should return to normal resting position
Press the self-clean button. The panel becomes blank(---), then press the up arrow( ^ ). The panel will appear 3:00 (indication for the duration of self-cleaning). The oven will lock on its own and start the self-cleaning. Good luck, ya'll!
