SOURCE: westinghouse self cleaning oven manual or owners manual

Many White-Westinghouse manuals can be found here: http://www.frigidaire.com/support/manuals.asp I had the same problem and was able to solve it. They didn't have the exact manual for mine (a KF450G), but they had one that was similar enough (KF580H) to solve this issue. Setting the knobs to clean is only part of the process, to get it to run you need to set the timer. Read the key information below transcribed from the manual: --- To set the controls for the cleaning cycle: 1) Close the oven door. 2) Be sure the clock shows the correct time of day. 3) Be sure the Start Time knob is set for the same time as the clock. If not, turn the knob to the time on the clock. The knob will then pop out. 4) Push in and set the Stop Time knob for 2 to 3 hours past the Start Time. Example: If the Start Time and Clock read 1:00, set the Stop Time for 3:00 or 4:00. 5) Turn the Temperature Control to CLEAN. 6) Turn the Selector to CLEAN. If all controls are set correctly, the oven signal light will come on and stay on until the oven reaches its cleaning temperature. It will then cycle on and off. --- There is more information in the manual, but it's much too much information to manually transcribe - I've only typed enough for you to get it working. Note that the LOCKED light won't light initially, it only lights once the oven exceeds 550 degrees. Once that light is on, the oven will not reopen until the temperature drops below that point, even if you stop the clean cycle. Be sure to empty out the storage drawer under the oven before cleaning.

SOURCE: baking element

oh bleep, right? well, if you're lucky this will get you going again. 1. disconnect power to range. 2. remove back metal cover just above range power cord (usually 5 quarter inch hex screws) 3. look for burnt off wire leading to/from bake element. If yes, 4. strip ends of broken wire and splice with ceramic wire nut if no 4. bad news. replace ERC (electronic range control) you fried something on the board. It's got the clock display and all the electronics behind it.

How do I clean under the electric elements on my basic westinghouse stove


Hello friend, thanks for your post!

I understand that you would like to clean under the cooktop on your Frigidaire range. Could you provide me with your model number please? You can locate the serial tag (which lists your model number) on the storage drawer on the right hand side. With this information I can better assist you. -Matt

Front right burner stopped working


Often, this will be due to the element. The easiest way to troubleshoot is take a matching element(if possible) from the other side of the stove top and see if that works in the receptacle.

There should be some letters after the model numbers you listed. The last three letters also lets me know what type of top you have on your stove to guide you through how to access the parts. Make sure you write the full number with all the letters before ordering parts.

If you have the glass top or ceramic model, the connections are different than other types. The manufacturer warns customers and nonservice personnel to never try to lift these cooktops. If you would like to pursue changing or testing this element despite that caution, there is a picture of an element and switch below.

On some flat top models, you need to open or take off the over door before you can lift the top. Most stove tops will then lift off, but you may need to take off a screw or two.

Also, on Canadian models, the front two burners will not operate during oven cleaning mode. If you are a Canadian user, try to reset your burner by turning on and off at the breaker. Canadian users should also make sure that the timer is not set and open the oven door fully to make sure toasting is not engaged.

Porcelain cooktops simply lift from the front and are held open with metal supports. Replacing coil type elements on models with drip bowls (not flat top) is very easy; you simply pull out the element and replace with a new one that can be purchased in large chains and appliance stores.

You should check the receptacle and wiring underneath the stove top for signs of visible dirt, grease or other abnormalities such as burns or frays. Turn off the power, and make sure the wiring plugs are tight.

Make sure the plug in end of the coil element is not burnt or damaged. Check the coil for rough or discolored spots. Follow the wires under the stove top that plug into the coil receptacle to make sure that there are not burnt, frayed or broken areas on the wire coatings.

Testing the element for continuity and possibilities like the receptacle and infinite switch requires special tools. Testing the infinite switch would be extremely dangerous as it is done live with 240 current (unless you live outside the US). If you have testers, you can check the integrity of all of the above.

Another less likely cause for elements not working is the knob that controls the burner being damaged on the inside. You can pull a different knob to see if that works, but this kind of issue is usually obvious because it does not fit snugly and has play when you turn it.

Finally, if you are going to replace the element, or replace the receptacle or switch, make sure that you take the old ones with you with the full model number. Before pulling wires, take a digital picture or mark wires with tape/paint so that you remember how to reconnect.

Check your parts before leaving the store, so that uninformed clerks do not steer you wrong. If you need further info on how to remove and replace the items shown, leave comments. But, take a look under the hood first, because you might be surprised at how simple it all is. I hope this helps

How do I access the spill tray under the element of a chef stove in order to clean it?


Make sure that all of your burners are off and cool. Raise the stove top. It should tilt from front to back. There will likely be rods inside to hold the top open.

glass cleaner WITH ammonia, and a small toothbrush works well. mop up with an old washcloth, rinsing often. for pieces which have gummy residue, and which can be removed to the sink for soap and water finsing afterwards, try GooGone.

Lifting the top to clean spills


Hi
Look under the counter top find the bolts that secures the stove top, unplug the power and remove the top, then look around the edges of the stove top and you should see some small screws that atach the glass to the frame, remove those and lift the glass carefuly, "DO YOUR THING" and then just reverse the steps and done.
