Re: heating eliments do not heat up
Did the electrical service power go out, or did the display on the oven go out? If it was the display, then make certain the breakers didn't trip or fuses blow feeding power to the unit. If they are both good, and the display is still not lighting up, the unit may have blown a thermal fuse, usually located near the control head. This failure could be caused by a number of things (it happened that my KitchenAid had a service bulletin and modification kit to replace the blowers and reroute the wiring).

Press the "Auto Clean" or "Precise Clean" button depending on the control type of your range. Then press start. The oven should lock and start the self-cleaning cycle. The cycle is usually 3 hours from start to finish and cannot be stopped once it has started heating. The range gets extremely hot and causes the inside of the oven to act like a catalyst to burn the grease. It will create smoke and odor depending on how dirty the inside of the oven is. Make sure to leave the exhaust fan on above the range to remove some of the heat. And definently do not do the cleaning cycle on a hot summer day!
Check your owner's manual, but most self-cleaning ovens should not be cleaned with chemicals. The finish can be permanently damaged. You might try running the oven through the self-cleaning cycle more than once. It will take some time. Make sure the room is ventilated properly since the cleaning cycle produces a lot of heat.
Happens alot dont feel bad , self clean mode runs the elements at 500 deg. to cook off everything possible , what happens is the cabinet gets to hot and heats saftey temp. fuses until they go out and they are not resetable. they are always located in different areas of ranges but usaully in the back. you can ohm them out to check them if you have a meter.let me know if you have any other questions.
beleive it or not set the clock,I work at an apartment complex and the cleaner always unplugs my stoves to clean behind ,everytime I plug back in PF,Just set the clock hours and minutes,Its just telling you you lost power incase you had something cooking in the oven,you wont think that your oven is broken,and also so it doesnt start automatically by it self please rate this solution thanks
