Need manual for self cleaning, please?


Hello Mary;

You can get a user manual at the following website.

Locate your oven model number. It is located on a label either on the face of the oven when you open the door or on the side of the door. Put he model number into the website and you will get diagrams, component part numbers and manuals.

http://www.searspastsdirect.com/

I suspect the user manual is not going to help you. Tell me the model number and what is going on.

Manufacturers offer the self cleaning feature on ovens because customers like this feature and the ovens sell. Yet, the manufacturers engineers have not been able to provide a design that will protect all of the components from self cleaning temperature of 900-1,000 degree F.

When you go into the self cleaning model, the door will lock when you reach 500-550 Degree F. The oven temperature will raise to 900-1,000 degrees F. The oven door will not open until the oven temperature drops to 500 degree F after the self cleaning cycle is completed.

Now, You have a high temperature limit switch in your oven. If this switch fails, you will loose power to your control board and you will not be able to open the oven door.

If you have never used your self cleaning feature, the high temperature limit switch may have failed.

Do to the problems involved with the self cleaning feature, knocking out the control board from heat, additional heating element failure, and other components; It is in my professional recommendation as well as my fellow technicians not to use the self cleaning feature. If you do, do not run it for more than 1 hour instead for the manual 4 hours.

I have Maytag ECWE550 How do I operate the self cleaning (never did it) or can I get a manual online?


When you use self clean the 900 degree temperature damages the electronics. I do not advise using that feature. Get some oven cleaner and do it the old fashioned way. My opinion.

I have the self cleaning feature and put it on medium clean which takes 3 hours. This was 4 hours ago and the oven is still hot and the door won't open


This is normal, don't panic! You have to let it cool off. Cool down can take up to 2 hours (after the clean cycle is done). The companies do not factor in cool down time into the length of the clean cycle. The oven reaches about 750 to 800 degrees during self clean so give it some time.

I have a Whirlpool Gas Super Capacity 465 oven model SF325PEGW. I have lost my manual and I do not know if this is a self-cleaning oven or continuous cleaning or if I have to use Easy Off.


You can download the manual on the Whirlpool web site. Drill down to the technical and service sections. It takes a little poking around, but the information is there to download for free.

I have an electric Maytag stove/oven but don't know how to use the self cleaning feature. What do I do?


Dear cooper1914,

There are two types of Ovens that clean themselves.
1) A Self-Cleaning Oven which usually gets locked 1st then set on Self-Clean.
2) A Continuous-Cleaning Oven which is constantly cleaning

Some people prefer the old fashion clean by hand with degreasers but I prefer Self-Clean or Continuous-Clean as there is no need for harsh potent cleaners!

If you have a Self-Cleaning or Continuous-Clean Oven Do Not Clean With Cleaners as it will ruin the flavor of your oven!

Self clean


Usually the oven has to be locked closed with a handle on on the front door. This will activate a safety mechanism that will allow the cleaning cycle to start. If the safety switch is malfunctioning or the door is not closed properly, the cleaning cycle won't start.
