Hotpoint Self Cleaning Oven

I moved into an apartment with an old hotpoint self cleaning oven. Does the self cleaning feature shut off on its own or do I have to do something? It has been on for several hours.

    Mine has been running for five hours now. Now the self cleaning light is blinking red. I'm not sure if that means it's done or what. I'm very confused.

    Can you shut the timer manually?

    i got it to lock and set the knobs to cleaning positions, but it wont start the cleaning process, and the lock or clean lights do not come one, i am very frustrated seeing as i have followed the directions on the oven itself with no luck. help :)

The oven has a feature where you set the time for it to begin cleaning and the time for it to end cleaning.
Next to the clock in the middle of the back are two dials. The top one is the start time, the bottom one is the end time.
I suggest 2 hours to allow a good cleaning.
The locked light will turn off when the cleaning is done, allowing you to open the locking lever.

How do you get the light to come on so the oven can be locked on so it will let the cleaning program continue to operate?

Hotpoint SD97PI oven self cleaning funtion and grill not working


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.

Just purchase a good oven cleaner, generally available at most supermarkets, they can be a spray type cleaner, or a gel that you brush on, personally, I prefer the spray on type of cleaner.

I have a Whirlpool electric build in oven with self-cleaning feature. It is about 8 years old and we just used the self-cleaning feature for the first time last week. The oven was not that dirty, but...


Your thermal fuse or TOD mounted to the back of the oven went out during the self clean,it shuts off the power to the elements.
 The oven must be removed from the wall to change this.
