You can go to the Maytag web site and download the manual.  www.maytag.com, or go to http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/8113p293.pdf
and download the manual CAUTION 
• It is normal for parts of the ovens to become hot during a self-clean cycle. 
• To prevent damage to oven doors, do not attempt to open the doors when LOCK is displayed. 
• Avoid touching doors, windows or oven vent area during 
a clean cycle. 
Do not use commercial oven cleaners on the oven finish or around any part of the ovens.  They will damage the finish or parts. 
Do not leave baking/pizza stone in the oven during self-clean. 

The self-clean cycle uses above-normal cooking temperatures 
to automatically clean the oven interior. 
The oven should be cleaned regularly by wiping up spillovers 
to prevent excessive smoke and flare-ups.  Do not allow a 
heavy build-up of soil to accumulate in the oven. 
During the cleaning process, the kitchen should be well 
ventilated to get rid of normal odors associated with cleaning. 

Before Self-Cleaning 
1. Turn off the oven light before cleaning as the light may burn out during the clean cycle. 
2. Remove broiler pan, all pans, and oven racks from the oven.  The oven racks will discolor and may not slide easily after a self-clean cycle if they are not removed. 
3. Clean oven frame, door frame (area outside of gasket, and around the opening in the door gasket) with a nonabrasive 
cleaner such as Bon Ami* or detergent and water.  The self-cleaning process does not clean these areas.  They should be cleaned to prevent soil from baking on during the clean 
cycle.  (The gasket is the seal around the oven door and window.) 
4. To prevent damage, do not clean or rub the gasket around the oven door.  The gasket is designed to seal in heat during the clean cycle. 
5. Wipe up excess grease or spillovers from the oven bottom. This prevents excessive smoking, flare-ups or flaming during the clean cycle. 
6. Wipe up sugary and acidic spillovers such as sweet potatoes, tomato, or milk-based sauces. Porcelain enamel is acid-resistant, not acid-proof.  The porcelain finish may discolor if acidic or sugary spills are not wiped up before a self-clean cycle. 

Important: 
• Oven temperature must be below 400° F to program a clean cycle. 
Only one oven can be cleaned at a time. 
• Both oven doors lock when either oven is being cleaned. 
To set Self-Clean: 
1. Close the oven door. 
2. Press the Clean pad. 
    • CLEAN flashes. 
    • SET and UPPER or LOWER flash in the display. 
3. Press the Autoset pad. 
    • “MEd” (Medium Soil, 3 hours) is displayed. 
4. Press the Autoset pad to scroll through the self-cleaning settings. 
     “HVy” (Heavy Soil, 4 hours) 
     “MEd” (Medium soil, 3 hours) 
     “LITE” ( Light Soil, 2 hours) 
Choosing the soil level of the oven automatically programs the self-cleaning time. 
5. After four seconds, the oven will start cleaning. 
    • If the door is not closed, beeps will sound and ‘door’ will display.         If the door is not closed within 30 seconds, the self-cleaning       operation will be canceled and the display will return to the time of day. 
    • CLEAN will appear in the display. 
    • LOCK will flash in the display.  Once the door locks, LOCK will
      remain steady. 
    • The cleaning time will start counting down in the display.

Remove the drip trays, coils, and all the oven (foil, etc.). Remove anything on the stove to stay on top ledge such as spices, spoon rests, etc. Also remove the drawer under the stove altogether. Set the stove to "self clean." Choose moderate three hours and four hours to clean a clean heavy. Open windows and leave! Plan to do some work in the garden or relax in the backyard (not really leave your oven and completely unattended). The process smells pretty bad-which literally burning in the oven to ashes, so cleaning is easy. It is key to allow the oven to cool for about 30-60 minutes after cleaning because it gets very hot. Once done, clean the inside of the oven with a damp cloth. The oven must be flawless on the inside! Now you can replace drip trays and resume your normal kitchen. To avoid soiling the stove again, place a piece of foil under the burner to catch any drips. You can also sprinkle salt directly into the drip, which will prevent any hardening and allow you to lift the drip right once the oven has cooled.

    A self-cleaning oven is an oven which uses high temperature approximately 500 degrees Celsius (900 degrees Fahrenheit) to burn off leftovers from baking, without the use of any chemical agents.

How do I start the self clean cycle on my oven.


Is there a door lock handle? Lock it! All self-clean ovens must be locked before the unit will clean, if it is an automatic lock, the door lock motor might be bad.

Self oven cleaner


Hi Debbie, this is AP

I understand you are having trouble getting the self-clean mode on your Electrolux ICON wall oven to start. On this model, E30EW86GSS, you must remove the rack supports in order for the self-clean mode to start. To remove the oven rack support for
a self-clean cycle, pull up the support to disengage them from the brackets. If the rack supports are not removed, the self-clean cycle won't start. If you find that this does not resolve your concern and you following the self-clean instructions precisely I would recommend contact a local authorized technician to inspect your wall oven. I you need assistance locating a technician please visit the manufacture website for additional information. I hope this information helps to some degree - thanks for your question, and please do not hesitate to reconnect if you have additional information regarding your question.
Thanks,

How do I start the self cleaning? I hit clean and it does not start


On most self-cleaning ovens after you push the clean cycle button you have to tell it how long you want it to clean. Try pushing clean then pushing 3:00 for 3 hrs. If you don't have a number pad try pushing the clean pad several times and see if it cycles through clean levels like low, med or high. Then after you tell it how long to clean hit start. If you don't have a start button the oven should start cleaning after around 5 seconds. It will lock the door and begin the clean cycle. Also remember it takes around an hour for the oven to cool and unlock after the cycle is finished. Hope that helps.

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

I do not know how to start the self cleaning process. I lock it, but no light comes on to show it is locked...and when I turn both dials to clean, nothing happens.


There is an interlock switch that engages (or is supposed to) when you operate the locking lever in the self-cleaning cycle. This starts the self-cleaning process. It sounds like the interlock switch may be bad. Make sure you have selected the Clean cycle.

However, before calling for repair, disconnect power from the appliance for about 30 minutes, turn it back on and try again.

If still no luck and you are sure you have slected the correct cycle, then it may be time for repairs.

I need an owner manuel for Caloric Range Model # EST 345 I can'g figure out how to run the self cleaning oven cycle.


you might try the following, although it is the instructions for an old model, it may be relevant;

"The actual self-cleaning process is initiated by a simple 5 step procedure: 1. Set the range clock to time of day. Note: on models not equipped with an automatic oven timer, the self-cleaning cycle is preprogrammed for a 21/2 hour cycle. Use Steps 3, 4 and 5 only. 2.Establish the length of cleaning time by:
A. Setting the start time. Press and turn the start dial of the automatic oven timer clockwise to the desired starting time. B. Set the stop time. Press and turn the stop dial of the automatic oven timer clockwise to the desired stop time. Max time is 3 hours miniumum 1/12 hours. 3. Set the oven selector dial on the control panel to "Clean" 4. Set the temperature control dial to "off". If you temperature control dial has a "Clean" position, then set the dial to "Clean" instead of "Off". 5. Remove oven racks, broiler pan and broiler grid from lower oven. Close and lock the oven door by moving the latch lever as far right as it will go - into the locked position. If the lever is accidently dislodged restore it to the locked position. Otherwise, the self-cleaning process will not take place. Shortly after the cleaning cycle has begun, the oven temperatur reaches a degree in excess of the normal broiling temperature. The red "Clean" light will come on and the clean cycle will start. In a few minutes the door lock lever, which you have placed in the locked position, will automatically be secured to prevent the oven door from beging opened during the cleaning cycle. This latch remains locked until the clean cycle is complete and the oven temperature reduces to normal baking and broiling temperaturs. NOTE: Prior to self cleaning cycle operation, the oven and surface lights must be turned offed. The upper oven can be used."
