Hi yes it will just turn itself off so dont worry about it, it will take ages but it will switch itself off, when its finished dont try opening the door till its cooled right down as this has caused the lock to remain in the locked position for some strange reason, so just leave it to finish then let it cool right down before you try opening the door as you could have problems like many others.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts as people keep forgetting to rate the solution, thanks

Whirlpool self-cleaning oven: RBD275PDB14 . . . I DO NOT want it to self-clean. Is there any way to DISABLE the self-cleaning feature?

Just don't use it. The finish in the oven is made to work with the self-cleaning operation; it naturally facilitates burn-off at high temperatures. It is normally impractical to remove and replace the finish, besides, it's harmless as far as I know. If you are worried about someone accidentally activating self-clean, you could tape a coin over the self-clean button. (If you have a curious child in mind, the coin may actually draw attention to the button and invite its operation - you know better than I who or what you are dealing with.)

There is no good way to disable the self-cleaning function without replacing the controller with a custom-built and programmed unit. The button is in a matrix with other buttons, so attempts to disconnect it would disable other buttons and generate a controller error that would prevent the range from operating.

How to operate the self-cleaning feature?

Remove the racks and go for it. What it does is locks the oven and superheats the oven space which turns any grease or splashes to ash. When the cycle is finished, the door will unlock.

Do i have to take out the oven racks before I self clean the oven?

If you don't take them out the high heats can wreck the finish on them and turn them all kinds of crazy colors.... but if you don't care what they look like after the cleaning you can let them in...

My recommendation is to not use the self cleaning feature...

Self Cleaning Oven Problem

It is more like a self destruct feature.... it causes many problems with ovens and ranges from the high heat...

Self-cleaning feature

Check your owner's manual, but most self-cleaning ovens should not be cleaned with chemicals. The finish can be permanently damaged. You might try running the oven through the self-cleaning cycle more than once. It will take some time. Make sure the room is ventilated properly since the cleaning cycle produces a lot of heat.

My oven flased an F9 error....

The solution to this issue is to finish running the self cleaning feature to this oven, Shutting off the oven or opening the door before the self cleaning feature has completely run will send a F9 error from the safety co0ntrol unit feature built in to the system bios of the control circuit, You will need to close the oven and set the option self cleaning to run now. if your error message prevents you from taking these steps you will need to unplug the oven from the wall socket and let it sit for an hour to reset the screen and then run the self cleaning feature all the way trough, it will shut down on its own when the self cleaning cycle has completed

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!
