Question about Kitchen Ranges
I move the handle to the right to lock the oven door and then press the Clean button. What else do I need to do?
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

Tips for a great answer:
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.
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.
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.
Contact an authorized service technician if the problem is not resolved, as the door switch may need to be replaced.
