Using any kind of cleaning solution can cause the self-clean catalytic coating to be damaged. The glass itself isn't sensitive but don't apply anything like oven cleaner or other caustic cleaner to any of the other surfaces unless your owner's guide specifically permits it. On the glass, I have on occasion used a new single-edge razor blade to remove any heavy, baked on splatters and then conventonal glass cleaner to finish.

Whirlpool 8053294 door locked


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

This is a common problem. In the upper back of your range you have a small motor which can fail and not rotate to unlock the door.

You need to pull your unit out to get behind it. Unplug your unit. Remove the top back cover and disconnect the motor. The rotate the oven door latch shaft to open the door.

Go into the following website. Input your model number (on the left) and you will get diagrams and part numbers for the repair.

How to CLEAN a Frigidaire Self-Cleaning Oven Step 1Use a plastic spoon to scrape...


How to CLEAN a Frigidaire Self-Cleaning Oven
Step 1Use a plastic spoon to scrape away any extra spillovers or burnt-on food from inside the oven. Remove as much of this as you can before running the self-cleaning cycle, because any spillovers left in the oven during the cleaning cycle may cause a lot of smoke.
  • Step 2Wipe off the inside of the oven with a rag dipped in soapy water. Be careful not to get any cleaning supplies on the oven door gasket or to disrupt the position of the gasket at all; having a good seal is critical to the success of the oven's self-cleaning cycle.
  • Step 3Clean any soil away from the oven frame and its door liner with a rag dipped in soapy water. Any soil left on these parts of the oven may become burned on during the self-cleaning cycle.
  • Step 4Pull the broiler pan and grid, any utensils, and any tin foil that may have been left in the oven out of it. They can't withstand the extreme temperatures the self-cleaning oven will reach. It's okay to leave the oven racks in the oven.
  • Step 5Make sure the oven door is completely closed.
  • Step 6Press the "CLEAN" button on the control pad. Use the up and down arrows to select the desired cleaning time; use 2 hours for a lightly soiled oven and 3 or 4 hours for a dirtier oven. The oven will lock itself and begin the cleaning cycle.
  • Step 7Wait for the cycle to end and the oven to cool; it will then unlock itself automatically. Don't try to open the oven door before it has unlocked itself.

    How do I operate my self-cleaning oven..no manual..


    Thank you for your post, Pattie Cromie!

    I see that you would like to operate self-clean on your Frigidaire range and you do not have the manual. Typically, to start self-clean you would need to push the button labeled "Self-clean" and make sure there is nothing inside the oven before starting a self-clean cycle. Also before starting self-clean close the door because of the temperatures that are created within the oven the door needs to be closed and locked. I hope this has been beneficial. -Matt

    How do I get the door open after self cleaning and what do I push to self cleaning


    Hi, Some ovens are self cleaning During the cleaning process, the oven heats up to a temperature of 900 degrees Fahrenheit. The extreme heat cooks off food and spills inside the oven, leaving ash that can easily be wiped out. The oven door locks while it is cleaning to prevent the door from being opened. Self cleaning ovens are better insulated than regular ovens to keep the extreme heat inside.

    Instructions

    Read the owner's manual that came with your oven before you perform self cleaning. Although all self cleaning ovens work basically the same way, there may be slight variations for some manufacturers and models.

    Take out the oven racks. You need to clean the oven racks by hand, and then put them back in when the oven is done cleaning.

    Wipe up any spills and messes inside the oven first, using warm water and a mild soap. Ovens smoke more during cleaning when there is food inside. Wash the inside of the oven door as well. Do not scrub the door gaskets, just gently wipe them off. Damaging the gaskets prevents the oven from sealing.

    Lock your oven door manually if your model does not lock it automatically when you clean.

    Open a window near the oven for ventilation. There is a certain amount of smoke when you clean the oven. The dirtier the oven is, the more smoke is created.

    Turn the control on your oven to "clean" and set the timer for 2 to 5 hours depending on how dirty your oven is, and what the manufacturer recommends.

    Wait for the cleaning to finish and the oven to cool before opening door. When oven is fully cooled wipe up any ash inside. If your oven is not completely clean, next time set the timer for longer. If your oven is spotless you might want to see if you can get away with a shorter cleaning time.

    Tips & Warnings

    Because self cleaning ovens are better insulated, they are more energy efficient when used for cooking. However, if you run the self cleaning feature on your oven more than once a month, you offset the savings you realized. With light to moderate use your oven should be able to be cleaned every one to three months.


    Save on the electricity used with a self cleaning oven by cleaning the oven right after use at a high temperature. For example, if you set your oven to clean after making French fries at 450 degrees, it takes less energy to get the oven up to the required 900 degrees.


    If you have pet birds, take them out of the house before cleaning your oven. Over heated cooking surfaces, oils and fats, can create fumes that are harmful for a bird's delicate respiratory system.

    Hope it helped.

    If I DO NOT want to use the self cleaning feature is there any other safe way, including using soap and water, to clean the oven without ruining it? (I don't want to use the self cleaning feature)


    Hi,
    1. Oven door : Wash the door and window with soap and water and rinse with clear water. Use glass cleaner only if sprayed on a cloth first. Do not use abrasive pads, powdered cleaners, or steel wool on glass and enamel, or the surfaces will be scratched.
    2. surface burner : To absorb a spill when it is hot, pour salt on it and wipe it up when the oven has cooled. A mildly abrasive baking soda and water paste can be used in the oven, too.
    3. Racks:Remove oven racks and clean them in warm, soapy water. Stubborn messes can be cleaned by using mild abrasive cleansers or a soap filled scouring pad. Rinse and dry the racks before returning them to the oven.
    4. Metal trim:Metal trim can be cleaned with glass cleaners or mild cleansers, soap and water. Abrasives or cleaners made for oven interiors should not be used.
    Thanks
    Smith.

    Can I clean a TruTemp oven with soap and water without ruining it?


    Hi,

    Yes you could clean it.

    Check few details :-

    t the bottom of this post you will find the web address for your ranges manual and the self clean system is in side this manual.

    How to self clean

    If your model has a door latch, never force the latch handle. Forcing the handle will damage the door lock mechanism.
    The oven door must be closed and all controls set correctly for the cycle to work properly.
    Before a Clean Cycle
    For the first self-clean cycle, we recommend
    venting your kitchen with an open window
    or using a ventilation fan or hood.
    Remove any broiler pan, broiler grid, all
    cookware, probe and any aluminum foil
    from the oven—they cannot withstand the
    high cleaning temperatures.
    NOTE:
    If your oven is equipped with nickel oven
    shelves, remove them before you begin
    the self-clean cycle.

    If your oven is equipped with gray
    porcelain-coated oven shelves, they may
    be left in the oven during the self-clean
    cycle.
    Soil on the front frame of the range and
    outside the gasket on the door will need to
    be cleaned by hand. Clean these areas with
    hot water, soap-filled scouring pads or
    cleansers such as Soft Scrub®. Rinse well
    with clean water and dry.
    Do not clean the gasket. The fiberglass
    material of the oven door gasket cannot
    withstand abrasion. It is essential for the
    gasket to remain intact. If you notice it
    becoming worn or frayed, replace it.
    Wipe up any heavy spillovers on the oven
    bottom.
    Make sure the oven light bulb cover is in
    place and the oven light is off.
    IMPORTANT: The health of some birds
    is extremely sensitive to the fumes given
    off during the self-cleaning cycle of any
    range. Move birds to another well ventilated
    room.

    NOTE: Use caution when opening the upper
    oven after the self-clean cycle has ended.
    The oven may still be hot.


    How to Set the Upper Oven for Cleaning
    On models with Gas/Control Lockout,
    touch and hold the Gas/Control Lockout
    pad for 3 seconds to turn it off.
    NOTE: The surface burners must be turned
    off prior to the self-clean start time.
    If your model has a latch, latch the door.
    Touch the Self Clean pad.
    Using the number pads, enter the
    desired clean time, if a time other than
    4 hours is needed.
    Clean cycle time is normally 4 hours. You can
    change the clean time to any time between
    3 hours and 5 hours, depending on how dirty
    your oven is.
    Touch the Start pad.
    On models without a door latch, the door
    locks automatically. The display will show
    the clean time remaining. It will not be
    possible to open the oven door until the
    temperature drops below the lock
    temperature and the LOCKED DOOR
    light goes off.
    The oven shuts off automatically when the
    clean cycle is complete.
    When the LOCKED DOOR light is off,
    slide the latch handle to the left as far
    as it will go and open the door. If your
    range does not have a latch, the door
    will unlock automatically.
    The words LOCK DOOR will flash and
    the oven control will signal if you set
    the clean cycle and forget to close the
    oven door or forget to latch the door
    on models with a latch.
    To stop a clean cycle, touch the Clear/Off
    pad. When the LOCKED DOOR light goes
    off, indicating the oven has cooled below
    the locking temperature, unlatch the door
    (on models with a latch) and open the door
    The oven door must be closed and all controls set correctly for the cycle to work properly.

    How to Delay the Start of Cleaning
    Make sure the clock shows the correct time
    of day.
    On models with Gas/Control Lockout,
    touch and hold the Gas/Control Lockout
    pad for 3 seconds to turn it off.
    NOTE: The surface burners must be turned
    off prior to the self-clean start time.
    If your model has a latch, latch
    the door.
    Touch the Self Clean pad.
    Using the number pads, enter the
    desired clean time.
    Touch the Delay Start pad. The earliest
    start time you can set will appear in the
    display.
    Using the number pads, enter the time
    of day you want the clean cycle
    to start.
    Touch the Start pad.
    On models without a door latch, the door
    locks automatically. The display will show the
    start time. It will not be possible to open the
    oven door until the temperature drops below
    the lock temperature and the LOCKED DOOR
    light goes off.
    The oven shuts off automatically when the
    clean cycle is complete.
    When the LOCKED DOOR light is off,
    slide the latch handle to the left as far
    as it will go and open the door. If your
    range does not have a latch, the door
    will unlock automatically.
    The words LOCK DOOR will flash and the
    oven control will signal if you set the clean
    cycle and forget to close the oven door or
    forget to latch the door on models with
    a latch.
    To stop a clean cycle, touch the Clear/Off
    pad
    . When the LOCKED DOOR light goes
    off, indicating the oven has cooled below
    the locking temperature, unlatch the door
    (on models with a latch) and open the door.


    After a Clean Cycle
    You may notice some white ash in the oven.
    Wipe it up with a damp cloth after the
    oven cools.
    If white spots remain, remove them with a
    soap-filled scouring pad and rinse thoroughly
    with a vinegar and water mixture.
    These deposits are usually a salt residue
    that cannot be removed by the clean cycle.
    If the oven is not clean after one clean cycle,
    repeat the cycle.
    You cannot set the oven for cooking until
    the oven is cool enough for the door to
    unlock.
    While the oven is self-cleaning, you can
    touch the Clock pad to display the time
    of day. To return to the clean countdown,
    touch the Cooking Time pad.
    If the shelves become hard to slide, apply a
    small amount of vegetable oil or cooking oil
    to a paper towel and wipe the edges of the
    oven shelves with the paper towel.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Door locked after shutting down cleaning cycle earlier than


    The oven door lock needs approximately 1 hour to cool down before the oven door can be opened after a self cleaning cycle has finished. If the lock does not open after the oven has cooled down, you can try....1) Unplugging the range or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Plug the range back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and try moving the door lock lever or opening the door. 2) Set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for 15 minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever or opening the door.

    Most ranges today use 3 different types of door locks...one is a solenoid controlled lock ( you hear a loud buzz noise when setting or unlocking the lock and has a arm that you must move to set the lock )...another is a heat sensitive lock ( has a arm that you must move to lock and un-lock, makes no noises and has a spring that slowly moves to lock the door will the oven is heating up )...Some locks are motorized ( no handle to move, the motor locks the door by it's self when you set the range for self clean )... If the motorized and heat sensitive locks fails to open after the self clean cycle, you must access the lock and move it yourself to open the door. On the free standing ranges, most times you must lift the cook top to access the lock mechanism. On built in ovens, the oven must be pulled out to remove the top access panel to get at the lock mechanism. Some build in ovens can have the control console removed to access the lock system. On the heat sensitive style of lock, there are no electrical parts to operate the lock, usually you will need to replace the lock. On the motorized style of lock, you will have to use a ohm/volt meter to test why the motor will not work. On the solenoid style of lock, the solenoid is often mounted on the back of the range and can be accessed by removing the rear panel, some may be mounted at the front, such as in a built in oven. The failure of the solenoid style of lock is normally caused by a bad lock solenoid. In order to get your door open, you must operate the door latch mechanism manually. Unplug or remove power from the range. Take the rear cover off the range. Locate the door latch assembly and operate it manually and open your door. Then check continuity of the solenoid. Some of the latch assemblies have micro switches to supply power also. You may need to check them. You should be able to get the door open and use your range until you can get a tech to repair if you can not repair yourself.

    If you've interrupted the clean cycle or have accidentally set the clean cycle with the oven door open, the latch may have engaged and now the door can't be closed because it will hit the latch. There may be a door activated* switch on the front face of the oven. In this case you may need to manually press that door switch with your finger while at the same time canceling the clean cycle to get the latch to retract so the door can close fully again.
