Hi


The oven was interupted/switched off while it was in clean mode. Try pressing Start/Cabcel button for over 10 seconds and check if the door latch unlocks. If not then try and run the self clean cycle again and let the cycle complete. After the cycle completes let the oven cool down for 30-40 minutes. However, it still doesn't unlock then you would need to disassemble the oven to remove the latch. Hope this helps... If it does please do not forget to accept the solution or post back for assistance.

Hi, Try and restart the cleaning cycle. You might here the door latch motor run (unless you havve a handle you need to move to lock door) Once the clean cycle starts, cancel it and see if the latch releases.

How do i operate the self cleaning function


Hello - Before using the self-cleaning cycle of the appliance, remove the broiler pan and any utensils stored in the appliance. Also remove any excess spillovers in the oven cavity. Allow the oven to cool before cleaning. During the self-cleaning cycle, the outside of the wall oven can become very hot to the touch.

Typically to set the controls for a self-clean the first step is to confirm that the clock shows the correct time of the day. Press CLEAN. "---" appears in the display. Press the UP ARROW or DOWN ARROW once. "3:00" appears in the display for a 3 hour cycle. To change to a 2 hour cycle press DOWN ARROW"2:00" appears in the display. As soon as the controls are set, the motor drive lock will begin to close automatically and the "LOCK" indicator light will flash. DO NOT open the oven door while the light is flashing (it takes about 15 seconds for the over door to lock). "CLn" will appear in the display during the Self-Clean cycle and the "LOCK" light will glow until the Self-Cleaning cycle is complete or cancelled and the oven temperature has cooled.

When the Self-Clean cycle has completed, the time of the day or "End" will appear in the display window and the "Clean" and "LOCK" light will continue to glow. Once the over has cooled down for about 1 HOUR and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can be opened. If "End" is the display and the Clean indicator light remains ON, press CLEAR/OFF. The time of the day will appear in the display.

If it becomes necessary to stop or interrupt a Self-Cleaning cycle, press CLEAR/OFF. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 HOUR and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can be opened. Restart the Self-Clean cycle once all conditions have been corrected.

How to CLEAN a Frigidaire Self-Cleaning Oven
Step 1Use a plastic spoon to scrape away any extra spillovers or burnt-on food from inside the oven. Remove as much of this as you can before running the self-cleaning cycle, because any spillovers left in the oven during the cleaning cycle may cause a lot of smoke.
  • Step 2Wipe off the inside of the oven with a rag dipped in soapy water. Be careful not to get any cleaning supplies on the oven door gasket or to disrupt the position of the gasket at all; having a good seal is critical to the success of the oven's self-cleaning cycle.
  • Step 3Clean any soil away from the oven frame and its door liner with a rag dipped in soapy water. Any soil left on these parts of the oven may become burned on during the self-cleaning cycle.
  • Step 4Pull the broiler pan and grid, any utensils, and any tin foil that may have been left in the oven out of it. They can't withstand the extreme temperatures the self-cleaning oven will reach. It's okay to leave the oven racks in the oven.
  • Step 5Make sure the oven door is completely closed.
  • Step 6Press the "CLEAN" button on the control pad. Use the up and down arrows to select the desired cleaning time; use 2 hours for a lightly soiled oven and 3 or 4 hours for a dirtier oven. The oven will lock itself and begin the cleaning cycle.
  • Step 7Wait for the cycle to end and the oven to cool; it will then unlock itself automatically. Don't try to open the oven door before it has unlocked itself.

    Cannot unlock oven door


  • Here it is!

    Look for a manual lever to unlock the oven. If there is one, it will probably swing back and forth horizontally, just below the upper edge of the oven door.

  • Swing the locking lever, if one is present, all the way to the left. This should unlock the oven. If there is no manual lever to unlock the oven, it may be unlocked using push-button controls.

  • Check to see if the oven is in a self-cleaning cycle, or has just completed a self-cleaning cycle. If so, the door will unlock automatically once the oven has finished the cleaning cycle and cooled completely, which may take several hours. You cannot unlock the oven before it has cooled.


  • Unlock the "Clean/Off" button. Depending on the brand and model of your oven, the button may display both of these designations or just one. If your oven door is locked, but the oven is not warm and is not in a cleaning cycle, unlock it by pressing and holding the "Clean/Off" button.

    • Select "Start." (To set a delayed start, see your Use & Care Guide.)

    Note: For safety reasons, the oven door will remain locked until the oven cools down. When it is sufficiently cool, the door will automatically unlock.

    I need an owner manuel for Caloric Range Model # EST 345 I can'g figure out how to run the self cleaning oven cycle.


    you might try the following, although it is the instructions for an old model, it may be relevant;

    "The actual self-cleaning process is initiated by a simple 5 step procedure: 1. Set the range clock to time of day. Note: on models not equipped with an automatic oven timer, the self-cleaning cycle is preprogrammed for a 21/2 hour cycle. Use Steps 3, 4 and 5 only. 2.Establish the length of cleaning time by:
    A. Setting the start time. Press and turn the start dial of the automatic oven timer clockwise to the desired starting time. B. Set the stop time. Press and turn the stop dial of the automatic oven timer clockwise to the desired stop time. Max time is 3 hours miniumum 1/12 hours. 3. Set the oven selector dial on the control panel to "Clean" 4. Set the temperature control dial to "off". If you temperature control dial has a "Clean" position, then set the dial to "Clean" instead of "Off". 5. Remove oven racks, broiler pan and broiler grid from lower oven. Close and lock the oven door by moving the latch lever as far right as it will go - into the locked position. If the lever is accidently dislodged restore it to the locked position. Otherwise, the self-cleaning process will not take place. Shortly after the cleaning cycle has begun, the oven temperatur reaches a degree in excess of the normal broiling temperature. The red "Clean" light will come on and the clean cycle will start. In a few minutes the door lock lever, which you have placed in the locked position, will automatically be secured to prevent the oven door from beging opened during the cleaning cycle. This latch remains locked until the clean cycle is complete and the oven temperature reduces to normal baking and broiling temperaturs. NOTE: Prior to self cleaning cycle operation, the oven and surface lights must be turned offed. The upper oven can be used."

    Can I clean a TruTemp oven with soap and water without ruining it?


    Hi,

    Yes you could clean it.

    Check few details :-

    t the bottom of this post you will find the web address for your ranges manual and the self clean system is in side this manual.

    How to self clean

    If your model has a door latch, never force the latch handle. Forcing the handle will damage the door lock mechanism.
    The oven door must be closed and all controls set correctly for the cycle to work properly.
    Before a Clean Cycle
    For the first self-clean cycle, we recommend
    venting your kitchen with an open window
    or using a ventilation fan or hood.
    Remove any broiler pan, broiler grid, all
    cookware, probe and any aluminum foil
    from the oven—they cannot withstand the
    high cleaning temperatures.
    NOTE:
    If your oven is equipped with nickel oven
    shelves, remove them before you begin
    the self-clean cycle.

    If your oven is equipped with gray
    porcelain-coated oven shelves, they may
    be left in the oven during the self-clean
    cycle.
    Soil on the front frame of the range and
    outside the gasket on the door will need to
    be cleaned by hand. Clean these areas with
    hot water, soap-filled scouring pads or
    cleansers such as Soft Scrub®. Rinse well
    with clean water and dry.
    Do not clean the gasket. The fiberglass
    material of the oven door gasket cannot
    withstand abrasion. It is essential for the
    gasket to remain intact. If you notice it
    becoming worn or frayed, replace it.
    Wipe up any heavy spillovers on the oven
    bottom.
    Make sure the oven light bulb cover is in
    place and the oven light is off.
    IMPORTANT: The health of some birds
    is extremely sensitive to the fumes given
    off during the self-cleaning cycle of any
    range. Move birds to another well ventilated
    room.

    NOTE: Use caution when opening the upper
    oven after the self-clean cycle has ended.
    The oven may still be hot.


    How to Set the Upper Oven for Cleaning
    On models with Gas/Control Lockout,
    touch and hold the Gas/Control Lockout
    pad for 3 seconds to turn it off.
    NOTE: The surface burners must be turned
    off prior to the self-clean start time.
    If your model has a latch, latch the door.
    Touch the Self Clean pad.
    Using the number pads, enter the
    desired clean time, if a time other than
    4 hours is needed.
    Clean cycle time is normally 4 hours. You can
    change the clean time to any time between
    3 hours and 5 hours, depending on how dirty
    your oven is.
    Touch the Start pad.
    On models without a door latch, the door
    locks automatically. The display will show
    the clean time remaining. It will not be
    possible to open the oven door until the
    temperature drops below the lock
    temperature and the LOCKED DOOR
    light goes off.
    The oven shuts off automatically when the
    clean cycle is complete.
    When the LOCKED DOOR light is off,
    slide the latch handle to the left as far
    as it will go and open the door. If your
    range does not have a latch, the door
    will unlock automatically.
    The words LOCK DOOR will flash and
    the oven control will signal if you set
    the clean cycle and forget to close the
    oven door or forget to latch the door
    on models with a latch.
    To stop a clean cycle, touch the Clear/Off
    pad. When the LOCKED DOOR light goes
    off, indicating the oven has cooled below
    the locking temperature, unlatch the door
    (on models with a latch) and open the door
    The oven door must be closed and all controls set correctly for the cycle to work properly.

    How to Delay the Start of Cleaning
    Make sure the clock shows the correct time
    of day.
    On models with Gas/Control Lockout,
    touch and hold the Gas/Control Lockout
    pad for 3 seconds to turn it off.
    NOTE: The surface burners must be turned
    off prior to the self-clean start time.
    If your model has a latch, latch
    the door.
    Touch the Self Clean pad.
    Using the number pads, enter the
    desired clean time.
    Touch the Delay Start pad. The earliest
    start time you can set will appear in the
    display.
    Using the number pads, enter the time
    of day you want the clean cycle
    to start.
    Touch the Start pad.
    On models without a door latch, the door
    locks automatically. The display will show the
    start time. It will not be possible to open the
    oven door until the temperature drops below
    the lock temperature and the LOCKED DOOR
    light goes off.
    The oven shuts off automatically when the
    clean cycle is complete.
    When the LOCKED DOOR light is off,
    slide the latch handle to the left as far
    as it will go and open the door. If your
    range does not have a latch, the door
    will unlock automatically.
    The words LOCK DOOR will flash and the
    oven control will signal if you set the clean
    cycle and forget to close the oven door or
    forget to latch the door on models with
    a latch.
    To stop a clean cycle, touch the Clear/Off
    pad
    . When the LOCKED DOOR light goes
    off, indicating the oven has cooled below
    the locking temperature, unlatch the door
    (on models with a latch) and open the door.


    After a Clean Cycle
    You may notice some white ash in the oven.
    Wipe it up with a damp cloth after the
    oven cools.
    If white spots remain, remove them with a
    soap-filled scouring pad and rinse thoroughly
    with a vinegar and water mixture.
    These deposits are usually a salt residue
    that cannot be removed by the clean cycle.
    If the oven is not clean after one clean cycle,
    repeat the cycle.
    You cannot set the oven for cooking until
    the oven is cool enough for the door to
    unlock.
    While the oven is self-cleaning, you can
    touch the Clock pad to display the time
    of day. To return to the clean countdown,
    touch the Cooking Time pad.
    If the shelves become hard to slide, apply a
    small amount of vegetable oil or cooking oil
    to a paper towel and wipe the edges of the
    oven shelves with the paper towel.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Self cleaning oven won't unlock after cycle is complete


    Unplug it for about 30 minutes, plug it back in and see if it unlocks. If not, then the latch, interlocking microswitch or control board is faulty. Also look for any bad connections (make suer the power is off before you start wiggling connections).

    Self-cleaning feature of GE Built-In Oven does not work


    Simply set the Clock and Delay Start to the current time, then set the Stop Time ahead 3 hours. For example, if it is currently 8:00 then set the Stop Time to 11:00. The lights on the console will come on and the cleaning cycle will begin. At some point during the cycle when the oven gets hot enough, the lock mechanism is "fixed" and will not release until the cycle is complete.
