Question about Ovens
When I used the self cleaning oven feature, the hot air vented onto the control panel (above the stove part of the oven, in the back) and melted the enamel off the control panel under one of the knobs. This looks terrible.
Is this a flaw in the way the oven vents during the self cleaning cycle? If it is a flaw, is it a fixable flaw?
The reason I ask, is that if it is a fixable flaw, I may see about having it fixed and then trying to replace the control panel .
Perhaps I am just crazy and need to buy a new oven that doesn't have an enamel coated control panel because it is cheaper/easier.

Simply set the Clock and Delay Start to the current time, then set the Stop Time ahead 3 hours. For example, if it is currently 8:00 then set the Stop Time to 11:00. The lights on the console will come on and the cleaning cycle will begin. At some point during the cycle when the oven gets hot enough, the lock mechanism is "fixed" and will not release until the cycle is complete.

SOURCE: No power on control panel
No reset for the control panel... you can try a hard reset ( remove power by triping the breaker for 1 min ) most like you have a safety thermo thats blown or a bad control... I can help you find them if you want to take it apart

If there is an up and down arrow on the control panel, you need to press the clean button first and then choose clean time with the up and down arrow. Be sure to remove the racks, if left in the oven they will be blackened by the extreme heat. Clean them separately with oven cleaner. Place them on newspaper and spray them.
