Hi
Yes the self-cleaning oven will automatically shut off depending on the time you set for the cycle to complete.Below are some more details about self cleaning process.
A self cleaning oven works by allowing the inside temperature to rise to a very high level. It will then stay at this temperature, usually about 1,000F degrees, for the period of time it is set to. This is generally about two hours. Some models allow you to program the time from one to three hours depending on how dirty your oven is.

During this time of high temperatures dirt, spills, and grease is burned off. It is literally incinerated and turned into a white ash. The door locks automatically and cannot be opened. The door will stay locked shut until the oven has cooled down to a safe temperature. This complete cycle of heating up, cleaning, and cool down can take up to six hours

If this doesn't work for you, please comment and let me know, and I will be more than happy to assist you to further resolve your issue.
I will appreciate your feedback and positive rating

SOURCE: Using the oven self cleaning cycle to clean drip

This is not advisable because it will severely damage the chrome and or color of the drip pans and the oven racks. It will make the oven racks hard to pull in and out of the oven once the finish has been burned off. I did this, so I know.

Gas range oven door with not open


Your self cleaning cycle is running. When self cleaning is running the door is automatically locked and will not unlock until the self cleaning cycle completes or self cleaning is turned off. You should be able to just turn off the self cleaning cycle and the door will unlock. Do not try to pry open the oven door. You will just damage the door and/or the catch.

How to CLEAN a Frigidaire Self-Cleaning Oven Step 1Use a plastic spoon to scrape...


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.

    Hi lost the manual..need to start self cleaning


    Hello,

    An electric oven is a great oven choice because of the advanced self-cleaning feature often available on certain models. A self-cleaning oven uses high temperatures to clean crusty baking spills and splatters and free its owner from having to use harsh chemicals to clean his oven. The following 4 steps lay out how a self-cleaning oven works.

    Step 1 - Setting the Self Cleaning Mode
    Depending on the style and brand of oven you own, you start the self-cleaning cycle by setting the oven's operating dial to "Clean," a function that can be as simple as setting a timer knob or pushing one or two buttons.

    Step 2 - Cleaning Cycle
    Once you have set the self-cleaning cycle, the oven coils-both lower and upper--will begin to heat. These self-cleaning ovens are protected from high oven temperatures damage by heavy insulation installed in their walls and door during the manufacturing process.

    Step 3 - Automatic Door Lock
    When the oven reaches a pre-determined temperature, the lock on the oven door engages, preventing anyone from opening the door until the oven temperature has cooled.

    Step 4 - Removing Residual Ashes
    Once the cleaning process is completed, including cooling, you can then remove the residual ash by wiping the bottom oven surface with a damp cloth or sponge.


    Hope this helpout

    Lost Manual and would like instruction on how to set for self clean cycle?


    Make sure you have everything out of the oven, including the oven racks.

    1. Press SELF CLEAN.
    2. Press the TEMP/TIME "+" or "-" arrow pads to enter the desired self-clean cycle.
    3. Press START.
    The oven door will automatically lock. The DOOR LOCKED and CLEAN indicator lights will be
    displayed.
    4. When the self-clean cycle is complete and the oven cools, the DOOR LOCKED and CLEAN
    indicator lights will turn off.
    5. When the oven is completely cooled, remove ash with a damp cloth.

    Recommended times are 2 hours 30 minutes for light soil and 4 hours 30 minutes for heavy soil.

    If your oven has a HI and LO self clean time, HI is 4 hours 30 minutes and LO is 3 hours 30 minutes.

    It is also recommended that you remove anything plastic from the top of the stove during cleaning.

    When baking my oven door is not locked is it supposed to be?and if so how do we lock it.


    The locking of the oven door is a safety feature used only during automatic self cleaning cycle, this is because temperatures during the self clean cycle can reach upwards of 600+ degrees creating a dangerous situation if the door was opened, it will remain locked after the self cleaning cycle is complete until the oven interior temperature is below 100 degrees. So no the door is not normally locked during the bake cycle. Good luck !

    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!!
