Check the clock timer you may have programed a clean start time into it. Also can you give the model number it is on the door edge or near by the door when open. Let me know if that worked

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?


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...

Before you go working too hard to get you oven to go into the self clean mode(self destruct)....check out this tip...

Moffat Stove with a self-cleaning oven. I would like to know how to clean the oven using the "self cleaning" feature

hi there! I have a moffat stove and hopefully these instructions help you.
First clear out the racks in your oven. Take them out and remove any excess chunks at the bottom.
Then close your oven door and lock it by pulling the lock latch.
Now looking at your oven knobs [not your burner knobs] turn both of them so they are both on the arrow knob [your oven knobs should have small pictures on them and both should have arrows]
Now you need to set the time so in the middle of your oven their should be a timer and one start and stop timer on top of each other. Both timers go in increments of half an hour. So if you are starting your self cleaner at 3 move the dial to 3 or if you are starting at 3:30 move the dial to one tick after 3. Once you set your start timer, you need to set your stop timer.
Setting your stop timer, it is recommended to set it for 3-5 hours. I set mine for 4 hours. So then set stop timer to time you want the cleaning to be. If you set your start timer at 3:30 put your stop timer at 7:30.
The oven will start cleaning according to the time you set. The oven will get very hot. I recommend to not used the burners as the temperature goes to 500 degrees! You will smell an odor and that is your oven cleaning.... Hope this helps...

Lg stove 30755st went to self clean and the oven shut off

I will NEVER Purchase another LG product!!!!! We have had our Range for 2 years, each time i've used the selfclean option, it has burned out our computer unit AND power pad! I've called LG, called Home Depot and the extended warranty department. NO HELP what-so-ever. LG, says there is nothing they can do! So we paid $1700 for a stove that we can NOT use the self clean feature because it will put us out for a week. Its not very frugal having to take a family of 6 out to eat for a week and a half straight! And this is NOT the first time its happened! DO NOT BUY LG!!!!!!!!!!! The Customer Service will NEVER work with you if you have an issue, and once you purchase it, its out of the store's hands!

Electric coils do not work

Check the connections on the back of the oven feeding the elements. If good, follow back to control switch and check everything there.

I can't get oven to work on broil or bake; only self-cleaning.

Welcome to Fixya
My name is Huum,

Try turning the breaker off for 5 minutes and see if this resets the system.
if not you may have a defective Control board and you will need to have a HANDS on tech to diagnose these parts to be sure! They will have the diagnose equipment !

Self cleaning frigidare oven FEF368CCTD

If this stove has knobs, Make sure the clock keeps time. If it doesn't you will have to manually turn this off. (DON"T FORGET OR LEAVE WHILE CLEANING) Make sure there are no large puddles of oil or grease on the bottom of the oven.If the oven is really dirty it may stink a little. Nothing but the racks can be in the oven.Press the lock button and slide the lock lever to lock the door. Set the stop time for 3 hours and turn the knob by the clock to auto. Turn the oven knob to clean. (MAY have to push to turn all the way to clean) It should start heating up. Let it finish and then cool down. It will not let you unlock or open the door until it is completely cool. Wipe out any remaining ash with a wet rag. ALL CLEAN!

Jenn air s136 stove won,t self clean

You've probably already read pages 34 through 37 of the owners manual for this oven. We had this stove in the house we bought and the owner wrote in his own directions, which seem to work fine:

1. Turn knob selector to clean.
2. Turn temp knob to clean.
3. Close and lock door.
4. Push enter button and turn dial clockwise to desired time.
5. Push enter button again.

You've probably already tried this, but just in case I figured I'd pass it along.
