1.get pet birds out of house.
2.take racks out of oven
3.slide door latch over if you have one(door should be locked)
4.push clean on control
5.set hours by pushing the arrows.i would set it for 2 hours
6.when finished let it cool down when it is cool enough the door will unlock or you can push the door latch back.at this point you will have a gray ash on everything,just wipe with paper towel.
7.be pround and smile at your clean oven.
8.oh don't forget to bring your birds in if you brought them out,the reason you have to bring them out is because the fumes are toxic to birds,but not to humans.
hope this helped

The temperature sensor in the oven needs replacing. It is located in the back wall of the oven. About 3 inches long,metal and about the size of a thin pencil.

Hello Alfacendo. Your gas oven and broiler are designed to light and remain lit until a set temperature is reached and then shut off for a time, then fire up again until that temperature is reached and then shut off for a time, etc. etc. etc.
That said, it appears that your oven and broiler shut off when temperature is reached but then they do not automatically turn back on again and again as they should.
With your oven's digitally controlled system, there's no need for a mechanical gas valve. Instead, the digital circuitry sends the signal straight to the safety valve. Then, if the electric igniter is working properly, the safety valve opens and sends the gas to the burner, and the hot igniter ignites it. The digital system uses a small electronic sensor inside the oven to sense the temperature. When the set temperature is reached, the circuitry sends a signal to turn the safety valve off, which stops the flow of gas. When the oven temperature cools slightly, the sensor again sends a signal to the circuit board, which re-lights the burner.
In your oven, most likely that small electronic sensor has gone bad and must be replaced.
