Oven does not turn off completely

Knob to turn oven on is not working properly. You are suppose to push it in and turn. That does not work anymore and so the temp is not right and the oven will not turn off completely, but runs continuously on a very low temp. Not safe!

You should pull the knob off and check that there is a metal liner in the knob itself. These sometimes fall out and the plastic knob does not turn the control properly. Get a new knob at your local appliance store.

I have misplaced the manual for my oven and I need the self cleaning instructions. Model # RF365PXDQ0 Serial # FE2007966


First remove the racks, broiler pan (complete) and any aluminum foil that is in the oven. Hand clean any large deposits inside the oven. Use a non-abrasive cleanser, not an oven cleaner. Clean around the door frame and the edge of the door (outside of the gasket) with hot water and detergent. Close the door to the oven and make sure there are no plastic utensils near the vent of the oven. Make sure that your kitchen is well ventilated.

Next move the lock lever to the right. Set the Oven Selector and Oven Temperature both to Clean. Make sure that the clock, Start and Stop times are set to the correct time. Then push in and turn the Stop time knob clockwise to 3 hours (normal cycle). Make sure the Start time knob is not pushed in. Now wait for the cleaning cycle to be completed and for the oven to cool down. The lock lever can not be moved back to the left until the oven is cool. Forcing it will break it. Turn the Oven Selector and the Oven Temperature knobs to Off.

The manual is available here: http://www.kitchenaid.ca/assets/pdfs/literature/Use%20and%20Care%20Guide%20-%203189075.pdf . If the direct link doesn't work, start here: http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/product_literature/search.jsp?siteCd=WHRCOM and enter the model number and then click Go.

I hope this helps.

My oven wont heat up?


Hello there:
first chevck to see if the broil feature will work but if both the broil and bake feature does not work meaning it will not heat up if you have selected either the bake or broil follow these solutions that i have provided for you .
It won't bake or broil If neither the bake nor the broiler heating elements heat, but the range burners still work, the clock may be set for a timed or self-cleaning cycle. Check to be sure the clock buttons and knobs are set properly. If your clock has a knob that says "push for man(ual)", push the knob in and try the baking and broiling elements again. If it still does not operate properly, you probably have a defect in the thermostat, selector switch, or common wiring. If the oven does not have a separate bake/broil/etc. selector switch, the problem may be with the thermostat. But it's not easy to check the selector switch or thermostat for proper operation. If you suspect a problem in this area, call a qualified appliance repair technician.

Thanks for using FixYa. If neither the bake nor the broiler heating elements heat, but the range burners still works, the clock may be set for a timed or self-cleaning cycle. Check to be sure the clock buttons and knobs are set properly. If your clock has a knob that says "push for manual", push the knob in and try the baking and broiling elements again. If it still does not operate properly, you probably have a defect in the thermostat, selector switch, or common wiring.

  • When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out.


  • You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results.

    If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component.

  • When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, it could be one of several different things. First check to see if the thermostat sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It could be lying on the floor of the oven or resting on the heating element. This would cause the oven to not heat correctly.


  • If the thermostat bulb is not dislodged, it's likely that the thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective.

    Electronic ovens with a digital display use a sensor to monitor oven temperature. To solve temperature problems for these models, you may need to replace the sensor. On some digital-display models, you can calibrate the temperature using the key pad. See your operator's manual for details.

    Ovens without a digital display often use a mechanical system for controlling temperature. On many of these units, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat.

    If, when you remove the knob, there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you can loosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knob isn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 30 to 40 degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem.

It won't broil Usually, when an oven won't broil, it's because the broiler element is burned out. The broiler element in an electric oven is the black, pencil-thick tube at the top of the oven. When the broiler is on, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.

Self-cleaning feature of GE Built-In Oven does not work


Simply set the Clock and Delay Start to the current time, then set the Stop Time ahead 3 hours. For example, if it is currently 8:00 then set the Stop Time to 11:00. The lights on the console will come on and the cleaning cycle will begin. At some point during the cycle when the oven gets hot enough, the lock mechanism is "fixed" and will not release until the cycle is complete.
