How do you start the self cleaning oven process on a kenmore stove purchased from Sears in 2009?


  1. Empty the Oven
    • Take everything out of the oven. Remove the racks and clean them with soap and water in the kitchen sink. Look for any loose debris such as foil or charred food and remove that as well.
    Oven Cleaning
    • To operate the self cleaning mode, find the switch on the range marked "Clean." The oven door will lock once the cleaning operation has started. Do not open the door until after the self-cleaning process has completed. It will take between two and three hours.
      During the cleaning process, you may see and smell smoke. This is normal because the oven is operating at a higher temperature than when it is cooking. The high temperature is reducing all the organic matter in your oven to ash. You will also sometimes hear popping sounds from the oven that is caused by the expansion of metal under extreme heat. This is normal for a self-cleaning operation.
      After the oven has completed the cleaning cycle, allow it to cool for a couple of hours. Once cool, take a damp dish cloth and remove the ash from the bottom of the oven. Wipe down the interior of the oven door and around the seal. Be careful around the seal so you do not damage it. Replace the racks back in your oven, and the cleaning operation is complete.
    Other Considerations
    • Clean your oven at least once every three months. If your oven gets heavy use, consider cleaning it once a month. Always run the self-cleaning cycle when you are home. Because it uses intense heat, it is best to perform this operation later in the evening or early in the morning.

Error code F5:E7 Can not get the oven door unlocked or reset this code. What do we do?


Beginner on forumn, don't have any manual in front of me on f5:e7. Sounds like a conventional oven problem, oven door locking. If in fact is some form of conventional heat oven (convection?), I had similar problem with a GE range, it flashed some kind of code seams like which I later interpreted by using owner's manual that explained codes. In my case it was in "cleaning mode" and you can't turn that off unless you unplug or turn breaker off, that puts it back to default mode with nothing running. I simply tried out the self cleaning feature, from there the oven went to full on heat and oven door locked unexpectedly. I learned stays locked till cycle finishes and oven cools, which is some time after the oven automatically switches off, said that it can be a couple of hours before you hear a...click, and now door opens (note to self, don't ever do that again).

I have a kenmore microhood 63684 turned lites on and can't get them to off,when fan button is pushed fan does not start but when lite button is pushed after fan is energized fan starts real slow and...


Hello,

What this simply mean is that there has been a problem from the fan either from the wire connection or from the Cole of the fan connected to the fan motor.

There are two ways of over coming this type of problem below are the recommendation to solve the problem

First of all set the oven on self cleaning from the below instruction or make use of your owner manual to operate the elf cleaning
Please after the self cleaning you most allow the oven to cool down to it best before opening

Some ovens are self cleaning During the cleaning process, the oven heats up to a temperature of 900 degrees Fahrenheit. The extreme heat cooks off food and spills inside the oven, leaving ash that can easily be wiped out. The oven door locks while it is cleaning to prevent the door from being opened. Self cleaning ovens are better insulated than regular ovens to keep the extreme heat inside.

  1. Read the owner's manual that came with your oven before you perform self cleaning. Although all self cleaning ovens work basically the same way, there may be slight variations for some manufacturers and models.
  2. Take out the oven racks. You need to clean the oven racks by hand, and then put them back in when the oven is done cleaning.
  3. Wipe up any spills and messes inside the oven first, using warm water and a mild soap. Ovens smoke more during cleaning when there is food inside. Wash the inside of the oven door as well. Do not scrub the door gaskets, just gently wipe them off. Damaging the gaskets prevents the oven from sealing.
  4. Lock your oven door manually if your model does not lock it automatically when you clean.
  5. Open a window near the oven for ventilation. There is a certain amount of smoke when you clean the oven. The dirtier the oven is, the more smoke is created.
  6. Turn the control on your oven to "clean" and set the timer for 2 to 5 hours depending on how dirty your oven is, and what the manufacturer recommends.
  7. Wait for the cleaning to finish and the oven to cool before opening door. When oven is fully cooled wipe up any ash inside. If your oven is not completely clean, next time set the timer for longer. If your oven is spotless you might want to see if you can get away with a shorter cleaning time.


SOLUTION 2 IF THE ABOVE RECOMMENDATION DID NOT SOLVE THE PROBLEM

Then you will have to replace the hole of the fan from the oven i.e the fan is need to be service

Hope this help?

Thank you and thank for using fixya.

Gas electric with convection oven ( 48600)


Old message but maybe you are still living with the problem.
There are safety switches that must close with the oven door before  the cleaning cycle will initiate and one or more of these may have failed. Sometimes these are actuated by metal tabs on the oven door that fit into slots on the mating surface. If yours is so constructed, use a popsicle stick or similar non-conductive probe and poke it into each slot listening carefully for a quiet 'click' or a change in resistance to your insertion. If one of these sounds or feels different than the other, one of them is probably bad although finding an action doesn't guarantee that the switch is electrically functioning. Unfortunately, if your oven is constructed as described, the switches are only accessible by removing the side panels from the range.     
The door lock feature is a must since the self-clean temperature must reach 900+ degrees to enable the catalytic action to occur.

No Power to Jenn-Air Microwave JMC8130DDS


I just had the same problem. Our unit is about 5 years old. I was running the self-cleaning mode, and put something to heat in the microwave. It heated at first, then all power to microwave went out. I read the above description and we pulled the entire unit out, and there was a reset switch on top of the oven. Pushed it and the microwave was back in business. I would have been very upset if I had called a service man and he spent 5 minutes, just as we did, to pull it out and reset the circuit. We turned all power off prior to pulling out the unit. It seems JennAir should admit this is an innate design flaw and offer some sort of compensation or come up with a repair kit to fix this issue....
