How do i operate the self cleaning function


Hello - Before using the self-cleaning cycle of the appliance, remove the broiler pan and any utensils stored in the appliance. Also remove any excess spillovers in the oven cavity. Allow the oven to cool before cleaning. During the self-cleaning cycle, the outside of the wall oven can become very hot to the touch.

Typically to set the controls for a self-clean the first step is to confirm that the clock shows the correct time of the day. Press CLEAN. "---" appears in the display. Press the UP ARROW or DOWN ARROW once. "3:00" appears in the display for a 3 hour cycle. To change to a 2 hour cycle press DOWN ARROW"2:00" appears in the display. As soon as the controls are set, the motor drive lock will begin to close automatically and the "LOCK" indicator light will flash. DO NOT open the oven door while the light is flashing (it takes about 15 seconds for the over door to lock). "CLn" will appear in the display during the Self-Clean cycle and the "LOCK" light will glow until the Self-Cleaning cycle is complete or cancelled and the oven temperature has cooled.

When the Self-Clean cycle has completed, the time of the day or "End" will appear in the display window and the "Clean" and "LOCK" light will continue to glow. Once the over has cooled down for about 1 HOUR and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can be opened. If "End" is the display and the Clean indicator light remains ON, press CLEAR/OFF. The time of the day will appear in the display.

If it becomes necessary to stop or interrupt a Self-Cleaning cycle, press CLEAR/OFF. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 HOUR and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can be opened. Restart the Self-Clean cycle once all conditions have been corrected.

Power failure control panel beeps no lights on panel and oven wont turn on. have lights on inside of oven. do i need a code, never have before. always showed PF for power failure.


Was the oven doing a self clean when the PF occurred? If so the cavity limit probably tripped.
Sometimes the owner wants to shut down the process of self clean for whatever reason that also trips the cavity limit. If the oven circuit breaker is weak then their could be a power failure during which the oven was on and that could cause the cavity limit to trip. No lights on panel means the temp inside the oven control panel exceeded normal operating temp and the small inline fuse going into the control panel has melted:

This is what that small fuse looks like. To get to the insides
you usually drop the side trim exposing the screws then the controls fold outward.

I have a frigidaire self clean electric oven but I am not sure how to operate the self clean


lock the oven door lever to self clean side, and turn it on self clean - it should shut off automatically when cycle is complete.

BE CERTAIN NOTHING IS IN THE OVEN WHEN YOU TURN IT ON AS IT LOCKS SHUT!

ALSO CHECK TO BE SURE NO ONE USED CHIMERICAL CLEANER IN IT PRIOR -- DANGEROUS FUMES WOULD BE A RESULT

Best regards

I'm trying to clean my Bosch oven, model number HES5052U, and twice now it gets 30 minutes into the self-cleaning cycle and then it shuts down... flashing Error 41. Everything seems to run smoothly until...


Allow the oven to cool before running self-clean. Always wipe out loose soils or heavy spillovers before running self-clean. If oven is badly soiled, set oven for the maximum self-clean time.

Here is the manual with "troubleshooting". Hopefully, it will help!

I was using the self cleaning device and the entire thing shut off and now nothing works. "Entire Appliance Does Not Operate"


Hello- Sorry- no good news here. 'Self clean', or self- destruct' as Techs call it, has burned out a circuit or switch somewhere on the unit. The best case is a burned wire connection. The worst case is control circuit failure.The solution involves on-site diagnostics by someone qualified to make sure repairs are needed and done right. Inspection should start at power cord and move to control board. Multiple failures can occur during 'self-clean', but sometimes only one part will fail. Find a good Tech to look it over and give you an estimate before repairs. Remember- Don't 'self-clean'!   It's costly and dangerous.    Please acknowledge this post if helpful.. Have more info if needed.  Thanks-- Ed

My oven door will not shut all the way. It


It is probably the self-cleaning latch that keeps the door from being opened during the self-cleaning cycle. Looks like it didn't retract all the way. Did you use the self-cleaning cycle? . Do this: Quiet the house down, open the door slightly and close it, letting it hit the obstruction. Do this again and again. You don't have to close it hard at all; in fact, do it gently. By listening, you will be able to hone in what is keeping it opened. Then go from there.

Oven shut down during Self-cleaning


tde, sounds like your thermal fuse (TC0) opened on the back side of the oven. If this opens, it will shut the oven down. This happens alot during self cleaning on built ins. Sometimes I have to re-route the tco to a different area to prevent this from happening. Your part number is 4451442. You will have to pull the oven out far enough to remove the back paneling and replace the fuse....Catriver..post back.
