When I try to clean oven, it locks, starts and then a F2 comes on and I have to turn it off and wait for it to cool before door will unlock!

How to set the self clening feature on a very dirty oven

If you have a manual locking mechanism right above the oven door, make sure it is fully engaged or it will not go into cleaning cycle. Most of the time, as long as you pull out the oven racks, you should be able to select the cleaning cycle and hit start. some models might even ask how long of a cleaning cycle. most of them are automatically set for 3 hours of clean time. Unit will get very hot during cleaning cycle.

Oven will not reach desired temperature and slight gas smell

Just had same problem it was nice it waited until christmas dinner, all i did to resolve the problem was switch the upper broiler igniter with the lower one for the oven. I tuned on the oven & it fired right up i never use the broiler on my oven so itll buy me some time. So if you can get the broiler to light try that but i did have the same low temp. & the smell of gas. Good Luck

Overide self cleaning mode

If the oven has become nonresponsive and the door won't unock, unplug the unit or turn it off for a moment or two at the breaker. This should reset the appliance. You didn't include any info on model or type of oven, so if this doesn't work, please include that in your next post. Thanks for visiting fixya.

Hi April,

Without a model number, I'm shooting in the dark but I'll give you basic instructions that fit for most ovens, OK?

First off the door has to be locked PRIOR to cleaning. Look around the top of the oven door, there should be a handle (for mechanical models). Rotate this handle from the left to the right to lock it. If there's no handle, that means your oven locks the door by itself when "Clean Mode" is selected.

Now, at the control panel, select "Clean". At this point, you may have options on the length of time it should clean, select 3 hours and hit "Start".

There ya go! Hope this helps. If not, DON'T RATE THIS SOLUTION! Just write back and provide the model number, I'll give you exact instructions with that. Deal? Cool.

I would highly suggest using the filler strip or do not use the oven in self-cleaning mode. You may be able to get the one previously used with the oven if there was one.
