Question about Amana ARDS802 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Downdraft I have a rental house with an ARDS802 downdraft Self-cleaning range. Some idiot used oven cleaner in it and now there is a long streak of oven cleaner on the outer glass of the oven door. It looks terrible. Can I take the door apart to clean the glass in a relatively easy way? The rest of the range works fine so I hate to replace the whole range just because of this. I know putting oven cleaner is a no-no but it is done so what do I do now. That is the only place that I see any cleaner residue.

I would leave it alone, taking the oven door apart is a real pain in the rear.

According to the manufacturer's website you should only need to Press and hold the "Lock" key for 5 seconds. A single tone will sound and the "Loc" will disappear off the display.

This is the link to Whilpool's website and to the manual.

Thank you

SOURCE: Self Clean won't start - Amana ACS3350AS Gas Kitchen Range

Same problem at my apartment. When I go to push the cook button it says "door" When you lift the top of the stove off you'll see the door latch. It's just a latch for the automatic clean feature which noone ever uses. The latch gets rusty, and the connections on the two little microswitches get super corroded over time. I tried to wire brush the green scum off of them but the connections fell off. You'll probably have to replace the connections or just cut them off and jump the green and red wire together to bypass the whole thing which is what I did. Really easy fix. you first need a phillips to unscrew the metal things for the burners. Just be carefull taking the top off the stove cause the little wires that go to the gas sparker can get pinched or break.
