Hi,
Cycling the power off and then on again will sometimes reset it...often you will have to call the customer service number to get the steps to take to unlock that...

How do you use the self-cleaning ??? i lost my manual within minutes of getting....


we have a sears kenmore model and this is how we do it. remove everything from stove including the racks, close oven door, slide door lock latch to the right till it locks the door. turn knob to clean. when it is done cleaning it will turn off by itself. on some models the door latch will not slide open when done. just wait for it to cool if this is the case. it should tell on the touch pad on stove the hours that it takes to clean it. good-day !

Self cleaning oven


Pheo,
Turn Breaker/Fuse for the stove, your electrical panel, “OFF” and then “ON”, wait 20 - 30 seconds and the door should unlock.
It may be that the temp sensor is going out and you'll need to have that looked at soon.

Closed door, pushed clean button, but door lock button keeps flashing and door won't lock.


Hello there and welcome to Fixya
This is a fairly common problem with self cleaning ovens
The problem normally is that the user has interrupted the clean cycle and the door is locked by default or the door lock assy has failed all together .
Now here is the thing these ovens have a built in memory module that stores a number of commands that the user has input in it like self clean or broil ect.ect so what you will have to do is to clear the memory and it is done like this.
First unplug the oven and do not touch it leave it sit for a minimum of 1 hour this will reset the memory module
Now only after the hour is up plug in the oven and you may hear a beep ora click if so great wait a few min then you can press the cancel button then try to open the door again.

How do I get the door open after self cleaning and what do I push to self cleaning


Hi, Some ovens are self cleaning During the cleaning process, the oven heats up to a temperature of 900 degrees Fahrenheit. The extreme heat cooks off food and spills inside the oven, leaving ash that can easily be wiped out. The oven door locks while it is cleaning to prevent the door from being opened. Self cleaning ovens are better insulated than regular ovens to keep the extreme heat inside.

Instructions

Read the owner's manual that came with your oven before you perform self cleaning. Although all self cleaning ovens work basically the same way, there may be slight variations for some manufacturers and models.

Take out the oven racks. You need to clean the oven racks by hand, and then put them back in when the oven is done cleaning.

Wipe up any spills and messes inside the oven first, using warm water and a mild soap. Ovens smoke more during cleaning when there is food inside. Wash the inside of the oven door as well. Do not scrub the door gaskets, just gently wipe them off. Damaging the gaskets prevents the oven from sealing.

Lock your oven door manually if your model does not lock it automatically when you clean.

Open a window near the oven for ventilation. There is a certain amount of smoke when you clean the oven. The dirtier the oven is, the more smoke is created.

Turn the control on your oven to "clean" and set the timer for 2 to 5 hours depending on how dirty your oven is, and what the manufacturer recommends.

Wait for the cleaning to finish and the oven to cool before opening door. When oven is fully cooled wipe up any ash inside. If your oven is not completely clean, next time set the timer for longer. If your oven is spotless you might want to see if you can get away with a shorter cleaning time.

Tips & Warnings

Because self cleaning ovens are better insulated, they are more energy efficient when used for cooking. However, if you run the self cleaning feature on your oven more than once a month, you offset the savings you realized. With light to moderate use your oven should be able to be cleaned every one to three months.


Save on the electricity used with a self cleaning oven by cleaning the oven right after use at a high temperature. For example, if you set your oven to clean after making French fries at 450 degrees, it takes less energy to get the oven up to the required 900 degrees.


If you have pet birds, take them out of the house before cleaning your oven. Over heated cooking surfaces, oils and fats, can create fumes that are harmful for a bird's delicate respiratory system.

Hope it helped.

Oven Door Locked


the oven door does lock during self clean, otherwise it will not work. however, the door is supposed to unlock after the oven has cooled. if it is still locked, turn the oven to self clean and wait about a minute and then hit cancel and see if the door unlocks. if not, there may be a probelm with the door lock mechanism.

Cleaning my self-clean oven


Turn the oven to "clean" and lock the door if the oven has a manual door lock. The oven may have an automatic timer for the clean setting. If it doesn't then you'll have to turn it off yourself in three or four hours. Don't be surprised if the oven puts out a very foul smell while it's cleaning itself as that's normal for an oven that hasn't been cleaned in so long. After it's done, wait for the oven to cool and then wipe out the ash from the inside of the oven.

Ge oven door locked


You oven is locked because it is self-cleaning. Some how the handle got moved and it initiated. You may need to let the oven finish self-cleaning. Usually, it can take about an hour to complete the process. Afterward, the oven will beep when done and your oven can be opened. Good luck.

Self cleaning oven directions


Press the self-clean button.  The panel becomes blank(---), then press the up arrow( ^ ).  The panel will appear 3:00 (indication for the duration of self-cleaning). The oven will lock on its own and start the self-cleaning.  Good luck, ya'll!
