Before you self clean you always want to take a rag with warm water and remove all chunks of food.

Next clean around the frame of the door gasket with the rag(these cant get clean in self clean) do not clean gasket IMPORTANT

Remove all racks and pans

Most older door handle locks require a few buttons, get your model number(which is located either on the frame your bottom drawer shuts on if a single oven, if double is on door frame if built into cabinet walls, if on floor its on back of control panel, a piece of metal thats like a mailbox flag, you turn it to read model from front) and go to www.maytag.com click support then manuals enter your whole model number EXCEPT the last letter. (example if your model is MER6775AWW enter MER6775AW<--only one W) This should bring up use and care guide, which will give step by step instructions, if you follow them and it wont clean, your latch most likely needs replacement

My oven door will not shut, i have a code of F9 showing


it MAY be your oven door lock is jammed..
I found this information for you:
1
  • Wait at least one hour after the oven has completed a self clean cycle to attempt to open the oven door, as the oven remains locked until the interior temperature has cooled sufficiently.

  • 2

    Press "Cancel" and wait a few minutes if the oven is cool and wait until at least one hour has elapsed since the completion of a self-clean cycle.

  • 3

    Open the oven door and check the door lock switch. Move the switch back and forth with your fingers to return the switch to the original position. Check for dirt or debris that may be causing the switch to stick or lock and clean as necessary.

  • 4

    Contact an authorized service technician if the problem is not resolved, as the door switch may need to be replaced.



  • Perhaps you can get some advice from Maytag

    How to use self clean for oven


    Turn off the oven light and remove all pans and racks from the oven. Clean the oven and door frames with a non-abrasive cleaner. Do not clean the door gasket. Remove any excess grease or debris from the oven bottom.

    Close the door and move the lock lever to the right. The "Lock" indicator will light. Press the "Clean" pad, then press the up or down arrows on the "Set" pad to adjust the cleaning time: two hours for light soil, three hours for medium soil and four hours for heavy soil.

    Cancel self-cleaning after it has started by pressing "Cancel."

    Wait one hour after the cleaning cycle has ended for the "Lock" indicator to go out. Unlock the door.

    Clean the oven racks with soapy water and a scouring pad and put them back in the oven.

    DO NOT KNOW HOW TO USE SELF CLEAN ON OVEN?


    Hi April,

    Without a model number, I'm shooting in the dark but I'll give you basic instructions that fit for most ovens, OK?

    First off the door has to be locked PRIOR to cleaning. Look around the top of the oven door, there should be a handle (for mechanical models). Rotate this handle from the left to the right to lock it. If there's no handle, that means your oven locks the door by itself when "Clean Mode" is selected.

    Now, at the control panel, select "Clean". At this point, you may have options on the length of time it should clean, select 3 hours and hit "Start".

    There ya go! Hope this helps. If not, DON'T RATE THIS SOLUTION! Just write back and provide the model number, I'll give you exact instructions with that. Deal? Cool.

    Self clean oven door lock will not unlock accidentally pushed clean button, cancelled clean but oven door will not unlock. it's been two days now.... what should i do? tried unplugging unit, that...



    The oven door lock needs approximately 1 hour to cool down before the oven door can be opened after a self cleaning cycle has finished. If the lock does not open after the oven has cooled down, you can try....1) Unplugging the range or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Plug the range back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and try moving the door lock lever or opening the door. 2) Set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for 15 minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever or opening the door.

    Most ranges today use 3 different types of door locks...one is a solenoid controlled lock ( you hear a loud buzz noise when setting or unlocking the lock and has a arm that you must move to set the lock )...another is a heat sensitive lock ( has a arm that you must move to lock and un-lock, makes no noises and has a spring that slowly moves to lock the door will the oven is heating up )...Some locks are motorized ( no handle to move, the motor locks the door by it's self when you set the range for self clean )... If the motorized and heat sensitive locks fails to open after the self clean cycle, you must access the lock and move it yourself to open the door. On the free standing ranges, most times you must lift the cook top to access the lock mechanism. On built in ovens, the oven must be pulled out to remove the top access panel to get at the lock mechanism. Some build in ovens can have the control console removed to access the lock system. On the heat sensitive style of lock, there are no electrical parts to operate the lock, usually you will need to replace the lock. On the motorized style of lock, you will have to use a ohm/volt meter to test why the motor will not work. On the solenoid style of lock, the solenoid is often mounted on the back of the range and can be accessed by removing the rear panel, some may be mounted at the front, such as in a built in oven. The failure of the solenoid style of lock is normally caused by a bad lock solenoid In order to get your door open, you must operate the door latch mechanism manually. Unplug or remove power from the range. Take the rear cover off the range. Locate the door latch assembly and operate it manually and open your door. Then check continuity of the solenoid. Some of the latch assemblies have micro switches to supply power also. You may need to check them. You should be able to get the door open and use your range until you can get a tech to repair if you can not repair yourself.

    If you've interrupted the clean cycle or have accidentally set the clean cycle with the oven door open, the latch may have engaged and now the door can't be closed because it will hit the latch. There may be a door activated* switch on the front face of the oven. In this case you may need to manually press that door switch with your finger while at the same time canceling the clean cycle to get the latch to retract so the door can close fully again.
    *On -some- Frigidaire built ranges, the switch is located behind the right hand side panel and activated by the right hand door hinge. On this model, the side panel may need to be removed to access a malfunctioning door switch.

    How do you clean self-cleaning Maytag Gemini?


    If the unit is a self-cleaner, you should remove everything from the oven (including the racks as the self-clean mode will remove necessary lubrication from the racks if left inside). If the range has a slide lock on top of the oven door, move it from left to right to lock the door, then press the self-clean button. If it does not have a slide lock, it should have a magnetic lock which will engage when the self-clean function is activated. The oven will reach approx. 800 degrees for about 3 hours. When it cools, you should see a white powdery substance in the oven. Wipe this up and you are done.

    Self cleaning MAytag Gemini GAS oven


    A wonderful feature is that the ovens self-clean with the press of a few buttons. Only one oven can be programmed to self-clean at a time. Remove the oven racks. Turn off the oven light and close the door. Press the "Clean" button and then press "Auto Set" to automatically clean the oven for 3 hours. Press the "Auto Set" pad again to set the oven for a 4-hour clean cycle, or press the button one more time for a 2-hour cleaning. The oven locks when in cleaning mode. When the oven is finished cleaning, the word "Cleaned" will be displayed on the control panel, and the oven will remain locked until the oven has cooled, which takes about an hour. To cancel the self-clean cycle, just press the "Cancel" button. Simple!
