Re: VDSC307-4bss how to operate self-cleaning oven
I continued a search and found a manual on line... simple process to turn on self-cleaning operation... close the door and set to "clean" ... timer on this model is automatic... runs for 3 1/2 hours.. fan continues for an additional 30 minutes ... open the door and the oven is clean. Thanks

you can't get parts for this stove anymore so i wouldn't use the self clean on it,use soft scrub to clean it it says not to use easy off on a brand new oven but at this point i don't think it would matter on a 20 to 30 year old oven,when you put a stove into self clean it gets up to 1000 degrees,the wire casings on older stoves break down as it is but with all that heat you can do some damage to the stove,even if you just bought a brand new stove using the self clean can damage the electronics in it,usually it will take out the computer board or clock assy. same thing,your clock is most likely broken on that anyway or something else could be wrong with it and most likely you won't get it to self clean but if you want to use it or try to get it into self clean go here and read from page 32 to 36 hope this helps you out but i would not put it into self clean http://www.servicetechhelp.com/public/user-manual/14-30-789A.pdf
if this doesn't look like your oven get the model number and google it on how to self clean
Can you provide some additional details to help me help you? What kind of stove (make/model) and does it have any kind of self clean mode?
Without knowing the above details generally speaking of the oven is already preheated, to change the temperature you would hit the bake/preheat button to then adjust temp up or down with a digital stove. The dial stove from is self explainatory!
That loc on message may be because you have a stove lock lever or feature that prevents the stove from being opened when enabled, or when the stove is self cleaning. This may prohibit the adjust meant of temperature when the lock is on, or the stove is running through the self clean..
Again all just a general thought without knowing the above information... if you can post back or let me know is this was helpful in anyway to you! Thanks!!
If your unit has such a feature, you can use it. Get the manual from the company website. It is located under customer support, generally.
If your unit does not have a cleaning feature, you cannot do this yourself since the temperature is higher than the oven can be set and the door cannot be locked to prevent injury.
Can you locate the model number on the oven? Also any particular name of the stove? The manufactured year. These should all be available on a stainless steel or aluminum attached plate , probably on the back of the stove or inside the door.
I wouldn't try using the self cleaning feature until we get some advice. it could lock up on you and not UNLOCK. Normally self cleaning takes place at 600 or more degrees .
I'm sure others still have the same stove., I will see what I can find for you.
If this stove has knobs, Make sure the clock keeps time. If it doesn't you will have to manually turn this off. (DON"T FORGET OR LEAVE WHILE CLEANING) Make sure there are no large puddles of oil or grease on the bottom of the oven.If the oven is really dirty it may stink a little. Nothing but the racks can be in the oven.Press the lock button and slide the lock lever to lock the door. Set the stop time for 3 hours and turn the knob by the clock to auto. Turn the oven knob to clean. (MAY have to push to turn all the way to clean) It should start heating up. Let it finish and then cool down. It will not let you unlock or open the door until it is completely cool. Wipe out any remaining ash with a wet rag. ALL CLEAN!
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!
