Gas electric with convection oven ( 48600)

I'm having a problem getting the oven to self clean. Its been a while since I used this option. I went through the steps, put the time in and it shows timed clean but the door doesn't lock and cleaning doesn't start it just goes back to showing time

Old message but maybe you are still living with the problem.
There are safety switches that must close with the oven door before  the cleaning cycle will initiate and one or more of these may have failed. Sometimes these are actuated by metal tabs on the oven door that fit into slots on the mating surface. If yours is so constructed, use a popsicle stick or similar non-conductive probe and poke it into each slot listening carefully for a quiet 'click' or a change in resistance to your insertion. If one of these sounds or feels different than the other, one of them is probably bad although finding an action doesn't guarantee that the switch is electrically functioning. Unfortunately, if your oven is constructed as described, the switches are only accessible by removing the side panels from the range.     
The door lock feature is a must since the self-clean temperature must reach 900+ degrees to enable the catalytic action to occur.

Sharp Convectional microwave oven model R990K (R980J) working but convection not working only getting to 70 degrees what are the common problems causing this?


Don't know model but the convection uses a coil and fan( if electric) if gas , flame and fan. I guess you have electric and have a bad coil

After I replaced the lower coil in my Frigidaire oven, the self cleaning part does not work.


Hi Carol Eggers, thank you for your inquiry!

I understand that your wall oven is not allowing you to perform self-clean after you replaced your bake element. It sounds like it could be an issue within the control panel or sensor inside of your oven. I would recommend having a professional come out to properly diagnose your appliance. -Matt

Smokes when using convection oven


There is no mention of this in the user manual. You could just allow it to burn off the residue, if you can stand it (that's how self cleaning ovens do it). Or, perhaps you could get the entire model number and go to http://www.repairclinic.com/ to see if they have any information. They generally have complete exploded view diagrams of parts that will show you how it is assembled. I hope this is helpful.

Error code F5:E7 Can not get the oven door unlocked or reset this code. What do we do?


Beginner on forumn, don't have any manual in front of me on f5:e7. Sounds like a conventional oven problem, oven door locking. If in fact is some form of conventional heat oven (convection?), I had similar problem with a GE range, it flashed some kind of code seams like which I later interpreted by using owner's manual that explained codes. In my case it was in "cleaning mode" and you can't turn that off unless you unplug or turn breaker off, that puts it back to default mode with nothing running. I simply tried out the self cleaning feature, from there the oven went to full on heat and oven door locked unexpectedly. I learned stays locked till cycle finishes and oven cools, which is some time after the oven automatically switches off, said that it can be a couple of hours before you hear a...click, and now door opens (note to self, don't ever do that again).
