I have no manual. When i hit clean nothing happens. Help. A little hesitant because of gas

This is the manual for a Whirlpool oven, Page 14 has the self clean instructions. Your unit may have a manual latch that initially locks the oven door close and as the clean process starts a second lock is activated preventing the door from being opened.

The second link is an article that describes pros and cons of using the self clean cycle. My experience has been on three occasions that repairs have been necessary after the self clean process so I do not recommend using it.

When i put oven into clean oven door latch keeps locking and unlocking door never goes into clean


You didn't specify the make or model number of your oven, but most self-cleaning ovens have an electrical interlock that holds the cleaning latch in the closed position while the oven self-cleans.

The most common issues with this function are a mis-positioned micro switch, a bad micro switch, a mis-adjusted latch pawl (the piece on the latch that engages the micro switch) or a problem with the control board.

Other possibilities include loose or corroded/burnt wiring or other poor connections.

Lost my manual have frigidaire gallery stove need to know how to use self clean

This isn't what your looking for, but please read this. I've been a technician since 2001, and I wrote this based strictly from seeing it first hand,
The oven temperature is regulated by a temperature sensor when placed in self clean the sensor is removed from the circuit and full power is applied to both the bake and broil elements causing an the temperature to exceed in some some models up to 1,000 F. I would recommend against using self clean for the simple fact that no oven cavity to this date has been designed to withstand that high of a temperature and therefore excess heat is passed upward resulting in damaged lock mechanisms, control boards, and other electronic components. The most common complaint I have had with built in ovens besides the element burning out, is the oven door locked shut. When I get to the house and I ask to tell me a little bit of whats going on the story always starts " well, I was using the self clean option" or some variation of the sort.

What is the best way to clean the racks from a self cleaning oven? The racks have to be removed during the self cleaning process but the manual does not say what to use to clean the racks and broiler pan.

Finally got in touch with my mother who suggested soaking the racks in the bathtub in very warm water with ammonium for as long as it took to loosen the dirt. Works like a charm. Remember to only do in a ventilated area and use gloves.

Atlas La Stella double oven

Hello Roland,
happy to help you out!
You must clean by way of wiping excess spills and materials dripped or spilled before self clean is operated. Or there will be smoke even during the self clean process!
Also do not wait till there is build up galore to self clean your oven!
If you spill or splatted and drip in the oven that day,
start the self clean after you do the dinner dishes!
More info can be found int he owners manual!
