How to use self cleaning

I lost the manual and need to clean my oven. Can you please advise how to use the self-cleaning, or can I just use a regular office cleaner without the self-cleaning mode?

    thanks - I might just do that. When I pushed the button for self-cleaning the default was 3 hours and I thought that was a little much, but don't have the manual to know what to do.

I lost the operator's manual for my Maytag electric range, model No. MERH752BAW. I need to know the procedures to use the self-cleaning oven feature.

I would not advise using the self clean feature. The extreme temps harm the electronic controls. Losing the manual might be a blessing.

Lost my manual. how do i clean my self cleaning Gemini double ovens

would need the model #, but generally, the top oven is manual clean. To clean larger oven, press clean, then up or down next to the timer to determine how long you want the self clean to run.

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR APPLIANCE before beginning any service procedure.
You would have to contact the Maytag factory for a new owner’s manual and make sure you give them your model # and serial # in order to get the right one, I have listed some information below for your convenience. There are new products in the market that do clean self cleaning ovens that do NOT harm the actual self cleaning process, but check with the factory so that it does not void your factory warranty. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local appliance dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
Contact Us
Call M-F from 8am-8pm Local Market Time
Sat 8:30am-5pm Local Market Time

Please locate the appliance's model and serial number before calling.
For Manuals and Literature, Use the Email Format in the Website
Lookup model & serial #

Self cleaning oven

Press the cleaning button and then the up arrow that regulates the temp as if you are baking I think it reads 300 and then it starts. This is for Kenmore self cleaning
