How Do I Use Self Clean Oven Feature?

My husband was our cook, and he passed away last fall. I can't find the owener's manual and can't figure out how to use the self cleaning feature on my oven. When I press "CLEAN", it beeps at me twice. I don't see a manual lock for the door. I'm not even sure it's a PER5705, but it is is a Maytag Performa, electric with a smooth rangetop (no exposed burners), stainless steel/black, with a storage drawer under the oven. Can anybody help a frustrated widow who's lost in the kitchen - with a dirty oven?? Thanks in advance.

From the manual:

To turn the Cooktop Lockout Feature OFF:
1. Press and hold (_ until "CLO" appears (Figure 3). Continue holding
until a second beep sounds (after 3 seconds). I_1will disappear from
the display indicating the cooktop may be used normally (Figure 4).
Note: Starting a Self-Clean cycle will automatically turn ON the Cooktop
Lockout feature. The cooktop will remain locked until the Self-Clean cycle
has completed and the oven door has unlocked. If a power failure occurs
after the Cooktop Lockout has been activated, you must turn OFF the
Cooktop Lockout feature before being able to use the cooktop features

Went dead while selfcleaning

This is a common problem with these self clean units. When we clean out ovens with this feature, we heat them to over 800 degrees! When you have a weak part in your oven this high temperature will take it out.

First, go out to the breaker box and flip off the breaker for about 10 minutes. See if this will bring it back on. If it doesn't, call us and we will send the correct part out so you can repair this your self. You will save a ton of money by performing this repair.

Try NOT to use the self clean feature, I try to keep my oven wiped out as much as possible.

You may contact us at:
from 7AM until 7PM CST. We hope this helps and we look forward to getting you cooking again. It's too cold not to have a hot home cooked meal in the kitchen.
Have a good day! Thanks, Ella

Ranges self cleaning instructions

An oven is a standard piece of equipment in the kitchen of a home or apartment. Often, the original instructions for operating and cleaning the oven have been lost or are not included with the lease of an apartment or purchase of a pre-owned home. To get the most use out of your oven and keep it functioning properly, it is important to know how to use it.
Adjust the racks to the desired position. Some Frigidaire models feature heating elements on the top of the oven while others are located on the bottom. Generally, moving your dish farther away from the heating source will result in a slower cooking time or reduced browning. Choose the desired oven temperature and set by turning the temperature knob or manual punching in the numbers followed by the "Enter" or "Start" button. Allow the oven to pre-heat before placing dishes into the oven to bake.

How to use..

Open the door while standing to the side of the oven. Standing directly in front can result in burns from the hot air. Wearing a dry oven mitt, place pans onto the desired oven rack. If baking more than one dish, stagger the pans on different racks, so that one is not directly on top of the other. This will help ensure even heating. Close the door and set the timer, using the numeric key pad or up-and-down arrows followed by the "Start" or "Enter" button. If you want to encourage additional browning on top of the dish, set the oven to "Broil" after the dish has cooked through. Monitor the dish carefully, as food can burn quickly. Remove the dish when completed using dry oven mitts, and turn off the oven.

How to Clean..

Do not attempt to clean the oven until it has cooled completely. The oven's exterior and the interior frame can be cleaned using a sponge dampened with hot water and dish detergent. The glass portion of the door may be cleaned with paper towels and glass cleaner. For ease of cleaning, wipe spills as soon as possible after they occur. Wait until the oven has cooled and then clean using the sponge method. If this does not work, a spray-on oven cleaner can be used, according to the manufacturer's directions for a manual cleaning oven, or for a self-cleaning oven, push the self-cleaning button and allow the oven to cycle through the automatic cleaning, usually about 1 hour. Never scrub the rubber seal around the over door, as this can lead to deterioration and prevent the oven from sealing properly.

hope you will be helpfull
Thanks for contacting

Self-cleaning oven doesn't work on Kenmore electric oven

I suspect the timer is involved in this process. It can be set to clean automatically. You need to set the complete time at least 2 hours after start.

Accel Cleaning Setting

It's 'sort of' self cleaning. I just got done figuring it out. If your clock still works, you're supposed to set it for one hour of cooking. Turn the Selector to Accel Clean and the thermostat to 550. The oven fan should come on and the elements should heat. The door doesn't have a lock, which must explain why it only 'cleans' at 550°F.

Inside the oven door there are some stains from liquid spill that went through the vent, how can I clean it.

If your oven is self-cleaning, consult the owner's manual for instructions on how to use this feature. The self-cleaning feature works by heating the interior of the oven to a temperature so hot that it incinerates the residue inside the oven. Normally, it is not a good idea to clean the interior of a self-cleaning oven with a spray cleaner; however, refer to your owner's manual or contact the manufacturer of your oven for further information.

To clean a non-self-cleaning oven, use one of the many oven cleaners that are available at grocery and hardware stores.
