Just purchase a good oven cleaner, generally available at most supermarkets, they can be a spray type cleaner, or a gel that you brush on, personally, I prefer the spray on type of cleaner.

SOURCE: Hotpoint Self Cleaning Oven

the oven has a feature where you set the time for it to begin cleaning and the time for it to end cleaning.
Next to the clock in the middle of the back are two dials. The top one is the start time, the bottom one is the end time.
I suggest 2 hours to allow a good cleaning.
The locked light will turn off when the cleaning is done, allowing you to open the locking lever.

SOURCE: how to use self cleaning oven

  • When using the self-cleaning feature on your oven, the temperature within the oven rises to an extremely high temperature, usually around1000 degrees. The oven will remain at this temperature for a set periodof time, often from 1 to 3 hours.

  • Self-cleaning ovens differ from traditional ovens in that they require a timer to control the amount oftime that the self-cleaning feature operates. They also require extrathermostatic controls to control the extremely high temperatures.

  • While the mechanisms inside aself-cleaning oven are quite complex, the concept behind aself-cleaning oven is fairly straight forward. The extremely hightemperatures incinerate dirt and debris from your oven, thus cleaningit for future use.

  • Safety is very important when using yourself-cleaning feature. You must ensure that the oven door is completelyclosed while the self-cleaning cycle is running. 1000 degreetemperatures are obviously extremely dangerous. Self-cleaning ovenswill come equipped with a secure oven door latch for this reason.

  • The crucial door locking system isinitially engaged to signal that you are ready to use the self-cleaningfeature. When the oven reaches a certain temperature, the door locksystem will ensure that the oven door cannot be opened until the cycleis complete and the temperature has returned to a manageable level.The result is a clean oven without the use of harsh oven cleaners orabrasives.
REMEMBER YOU ARE WORKING WITH 220 VOLTS - USE EXTREME CAUTION!!!

Hotpoint SD97PI oven self cleaning funtion and grill not working


The oven temperature is regulated by a temperature sensor when placed in self clean the sensor is removed from the circuit and full power is applied to both the bake and broil elements causing an the temperature to exceed in some some models up to 1,000 F. I would recommend against using self clean for the simple fact that no oven cavity to this date has been designed to withstand that high of a temperature and therefore excess heat is passed upward resulting in damaged lock mechanisms, control boards, and other electronic components. The most common complaint I have had with built in ovens besides the element burning out, is the oven door locked shut. When I get to the house and I ask to tell me a little bit of whats going on the story always starts " well, I was using the self clean option" or some variation of the sort.

Self Clean cycle on Hotpoint Gas range doesn't work


We see a symptom like this due to a failure in the control board. Although it usually also affects bake mode. Another cause could be a problem with the door lock as it must be engaged (by the controller) to initiate self-clean.

If this doesn't help, you can either post the full model number or email me at bruce@fixyourboard.com and we can dig deeper.
