GE Spectra electric oven. Oven won't work after using self clean feature.

I just used the self clean feature on my GE Spectra electric oven. Now when I try to turn the oven on the 'clean' light flashes and the oven on light does not come on. If I turn the dial to Clean, the oven on light comes on and the clean light comes on. I have had this oven for several years but this is the first time I have used the self clean.

    ok You will have to check the wiring connection to the clock and see if there is a loose wire in the clean circuit.

  • dewan nafees ahmed Feb 06, 2008

    for that you must get your service manual from someone.

What should I use to clean the tough spots in the oven


Use Easy Off only.
Self cleaning leads to malfunctioning parts.
It is a nice feature that does not work well.

Self cleaning oven help


There is nothing wrong with cleaning a self-cleaning oven. Now, I don't have experience with your speicific oven, but I do have experience with other self-cleaning ovens. The self-clean function simply heats the oven up really hot. The actual temperature varies but the oven will get hotter than the hottest temperature setting. What happens is that when it get that hot it actually burns up spilled food and crumbs. sometimes in mine I even see small flames. The oven usually requires you to lock it as well since the temperature will be so high. Eventually you have to clean out the burnt "ashes" which are basically the stuff you get on food if you burn it. So the answer to what happens if you clean the oven is that you get a clean oven, nothing else. It won't hurt the oven at all. As a matter of fact even if you use the self-cleaning feature you will eventually have to clean out the "burnt crumbs" and such by hand anyway. So self-cleaning oven are designed to be cleaned by hand as well. And you won't hurt it by doing so even if you did it every day.
