Question about Maytag CWG3600A Gas Single Oven
There are two types of Ovens that clean themselves.
1) A Self-Cleaning Oven which usually gets locked 1st then set on Self-Clean.
2) A Continuous-Cleaning Oven which is constantly cleaning
Some people prefer the old fashion clean by hand with degreasers but I prefer Self-Clean or Continuous-Clean as there is no need for harsh potent cleaners!
If you have a Self-Cleaning or Continuous-Clean Oven Do Not Clean With Cleaners as it will ruin the flavor of your oven!

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...

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...
