It will heat up to a predetermined temperature of around 1,000 degrees, and lock the door. After it completes the cleaning cycle, about 2 hours, the door will stay locked until it cools down about 2 hours on average. So you will have a total cycle time of around 5 hours. All done automatically unless you want to control the time yourself and it is equipped for that option. Some models do allow you to control the time of the cleaning.

    Will the clean light go off or do I need to turn the knob off after 2 or 3 hours? It's been cleaning for over 3 hours now and the light is still on and the door is still locked.

    If it has been cleaning for over 3 hours wait another 30 minutes and if it does not shut down, turn if off manually. Remember even after the cleaning cycle is over you cannot open the door until it cools down which could take up to 2 hours.

Hi
First press the CANCEL/Delay button for 20 seconds...If this won't work then you can start the self cleaning cycle again and then stop it after 15 minutes, then let the oven cool for sometime and check if the door opens again, if the not then you have to take a screw driver and open the latch. After this the latch mechanism should be replaced as it is bad. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Just use some easy off and do not use the self clean feature. Clean it the old fashioned way. Self clean ruins expensive electronics.

Oven door will not unlock


Hello,, Some times this will happen after a self clean cycle if the timer did not finish the entire clean. Try to set the clock to start the self clean again then simply end the self clean. This should unlock the door. If the door remains locked. You may check the oven for an error code, or the door latch itself may need to be replaced. One other possible would be to turn off the power to the oven and try to let the oven control reset. leave the power off for about 15 minutes then turn the power back on. That will sometime work aswell. Good luck and feel free to call me if you need more help.

While using the self clean feature you burned out the oven temp sensor.

Self cleaning


Never use spray cleaners in a self clean oven it will void your warranty and possibly ruin the oven. it sounds like what may have happened is the fumes from the spray ignited inside the oven and may have blown out the pilot light if your using gas.
or maybe replace the thermocouple. sorry, hope that helps.

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!
