Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

Whirlpool RS385PXBQ0 slide in range/oven won't work after self-cleaning cycle.

After self-cleaning the oven. The "Locked" readout on the control panel keeps blinking. Door opens, light is on, but when I press any mode on the control panel it reads "door." It allows me to initiate the self-clean cycle but the oven doesn't kick into the self-clean cycle. I've unplugged it and plugged it back in after a few minutes and it remains in the same status. Did the control panel get fried when the oven went through the self-cleaning cycle? If not, what might be the issue. I thought perhaps it was the thermal fuse, but there doesn't seem to have one on this model.

    I checked the wiring. There are no frays or disconnections. Do you think it may be worth while to call a repair guy?

Check the wiring on the door lock. If that looks good you need to replace the door lock but that part is no longer available.

    You will need to replace the door lock and that part is no longer available my supplier tells me.

  • lilytoy Oct 30, 2013

    Hi Richard. Thank you for your solution. I called in a repair guy. He said the motor for the lock is fried. I touched the motor and it was very warm. That part is no longer manufactured. We called a few places and it can't be found on any civilized continent. Seff-Cleaning is costing me $950 dollars. Uuuugh!! Thanks again.

SOURCE: Oven door won't unlock

I had the same problem on my Kenmore Electric Range. Door would not unlock. Tried pressing "Off" for multiple seconds, but still would not unlock. No error codes. Clock was displaying normally. Finally decided to try running it thru the self cleaning operation to get it to cycle thru locking and unlocking the door. When I started self clean, the door automatically went thru the auto lock and "locked" appeared in the display. I then hit "Off" to clear it and stop the cleaning cycle. The door then unlocked as normal!

SOURCE: KitchenAid oven shut down during self-cleaning

I've had the same problem and have had the thermo-protector switch replaced four times. After the last time I was so ********** I wrote to the CEO at Whirpool/Kitchen Aid in Benton Harbor, MI with my complaint. Today I received a call from an extremely nice lady in his office who said that they were sending me an updated kit for repair free of charge. The part number is 9759243. She offered that this was a known problem but was limited to just one production run - my luck!

If you are having this problem with your KGSA906PSS write to the CEO at Whirlpool!

SOURCE: After using the self-clean cycle, display panel went black and oven door stayed locked.

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.

SOURCE: Oven went dead in self clean mode and the door

Unplugged the stove and turn off the gas.Take the back off the oven and replace the thermostat. It's super easy. Before you buy the part call kitchen aid... this is a known problem. They will say the parts are not free and try to give you a discount. But if you continue to argue , they'll send it for free.

My whirlpool oven model RBD245 is locked after the self cleaning cycle, it does not heat up even if i open the latch with a tool?


Whirlpool have the self clean latch assembly solenoid go bad and wont return back to unlock the switch to tell the control is is no longer in self clean. Replace the self clean latch assembly or make sure the switch on the assembly is in the non self clean mode, If the oven starts working then you know the problem if it still doesn't work then there may be other issues.

When trying to use either upper or lower oven, panel flashing "Control Locked." Won't work.


Try this:

ToChangeFactorySetDefaultOptions:

1, Controloptionsmay be changedby se-

LectingtheSetupOptions(0)padandthe

desiredoptionpad.(SeeOptionsbelow.)

2. Currentoptionwillappearin thedisplay.

3. PresstheAUTOSETpadtochangethe

4. PressCANCELpadtosetthe displayed
optionandexittheprogram

The LOCK is option 4 change the OPTION from 4 to 9.
9 is the factory default settings.

This should work. However.... there is the possibility that the unit had performed a self clean function. If you just completed a self clean cycle it can but up to 1 hour AFTER the cycle before you can open the door or use the oven as the range must cool down and cycle a thermostat before it wil work again.

There is also the possibility that the door lock has not completely retracted. If you can get it to start a self clean cycle.... after 1 minute press cancel and the lock should retract. (I know you said won't do anything) I am hoping that after you reset the options from 4 to 9 that you might be able to do this.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

GE JBP79 door locked, no led readout after self clean


Hello- Control is about 250$. Could save 100$ by installing yourself, but the popular "self-destruct" cycle can cook other switches and what-not. Find a tech and inquire up-front if completed repairs are too high, they keep parts, you pay trip charge.- Hope this helps- ED

My rf367 range gets so hot during the self cleaning cycle that the top of the range is to hot to touch and the fan on my otr microwave comes on.


Normal operation. If in doubt place a high temp theromoter on range top to see if it exceeds 600-900 degrees
The basic idea is "burn baby, burn!" Self-cleaning ovens use an approximately 900 degrees Fahrenheit (482 degrees Celsius) temperature cycle to burn off spills leftover from baking, without the use of any chemicals. A self-cleaning oven is designed with a mechanical interlock (patented in 1982) to keep the oven door locked and closed during and soon after the high-temperature cleaning cycle, which can be approximately three hours. The door stays locked to prevent burn injuries. You can open the oven door after the oven cools to approximately 600 F (315 C).

KENMORE SELF CLEANING FEATURE WILL NOT ACTUATE


Firstly, empty the oven of stuff, including the little thermostat that dangles from the grate, if you value it's life.

Next, close oven door.

Press CLEAN; it beeps and green LED illuminates. LED readout says " -- -- --".
Press the UP arrow; it beeps and LED readout says: ''3:00'', for a three hour burn.

DOOR LOCKED LED blinks while door locking mechanism actuates, then stays on steady. Burner ignites, and it's off to the races.
The exterior of the Range becomes quite HOT, providing an excellent opportunity to educate young children of the concept. ;)

The Cleaning Cycle can be stopped at any time by pressing the OFF/CANCEL button for ~3 seconds. The door will remain locked until the internal temperature of the oven falls below 400F. Nice toy.

Whirlpool RF367LXS Ceramic Glass Range not working


Almost every time I run the SELF CLEAN cycle on my Whirlpool Self Cleaning range, it fails to function after completing the self clean cycle, even though it completes the cycle of cleaning and unlocks the door. What I do to solve the problem, I power off the BREAKER for the range at the main electrical panel in the house and wait 30 seconds, then power on....and the whole system works just fine until the next time I clean it. This has been a problem from the beginning. My theory is that the electronics get heated up and, like a computer, the system stalls out and needs a complete hard reboot. Good luck!
