How do I stop the self clean on Sears Kenmore Gas Stove

I pressed the wrong button on my Sears Kenmore gas range. The oven started to self clean. I was able to unlock the door by holding the clear button for a few seconds however, the cleaning sound is still going. So I unplugged it. The weather is going to be in the 90's this week so I really don't want to go through the entire cleaning process just so that it will stop on its own when completed. Any advice?

    I was trying to set the "timer" but hit the "Select clean" by mistake. When I heard the oven make the sound of it cleaning I freaked because I have pots and pans inside the oven... for storage, I have a small kitchen. I plugged it back in and hit the "stop/clear" button ..it did not Stop the clean cycle. So I unplugged the stove. Checked the internet ...said to hold the button "stop/clear" for a few seconds which I did (after I plugged it back in again). I was able to open the door. But the cycle was still going...so I unplugged it for the last time. I've been lighting the burners with a bar-b-q lighter Hot Shot.

Both the oven" ON " light and " Clean " light will flash when the clean has finished . When the " clean " light flashes , slide the latch handle to the left as far as it will go , then turn the " OVEN SET " knob to " OFF " to open the door.

SOURCE: Self-cleaning oven doesn't work on Kenmore electric oven

I suspect the timer is involved in this process. It can be set to clean automatically. You need to set the complete time at least 2 hours after start.

Not usually, there may be a problem in the locking mechanism. You must check it out and get that fixed.

I do not know how to use the self clean feature on my Kenmore Gas stove


Hi

Press the self-clean button to start the cycle. The panel becomes blank (---), then press the up arrow (^). The panel will appear 3:00 (indication for the duration of self-cleaning). The oven will lock on its own and start the self-cleaning. After self cleaning is done wait for 15-20 minutes and open the door. Please post back for any further assistance. Hope this helps...

Kenmore Gas Range


Hey Alan- 'Self clean' sells. Techs call this function 'self- destruct'. Depending on age and number of previous 'clean' cycles, the control may have developed errors, or lockout switches may not function. If inside is thoroughly scraped, and bottom pan checked, removed, and cleaned if necessary, oven should work fine. Preventitive drip pans and a lot of aluminum foil keep the 'Self Clean' Gremlins away. Hope this helps- Thanks- ED

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.
