How do I use my self cleaning option?

I bought a house with a self cleaning oven but it had no paperwork. I have never had an oven with this option, so I am not sure how to use it.

It depends on which model you have. Some have automatic locks others have a lever but the door has to be locked in order for self clean to work. Then you will have a knob to turn to "self clean" or a button that says clean or self clean to push then you will very likely have to select a temp and maybe press start. It is a very high heat process it doesn't always smell pleasant normally takes several hours 3-5 hours. The door will remain locked untill clean cycle completes and the oven cools. Then you can open the door and wipe out the ash.

Bought house with self-cleaning oven but no


There should be a standard that comes up when you turn it on. Mine has two options, 2 hours or 3 hours. Needless to say, the dirtier it is, the longer you should set it for! That said, I only use the minimum time for mine.

Self-cleaning gas oven


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. On many freestanding stoves the lock motor is located in the right rear (looking from the front) with a long rod connected to the lock. remove the motor and unhook the rod from the motor cam. Sometimes bending a coat hangar into a hook and sliding from the right side into the lock you can unlock the door.
