Question about Amana Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

I self cleaned my Amana oven model acf7225aw. During the cleaning there was a huge pop and then all power was shut off to the oven (no power to clock or anything). We flipped the breaker- another pop. Then, the clock worked. Now the lights to the stove are not working, and the stove is not getting very hot- lukewarm at best. Any ideas?

Yes you probably have a burned out bake or broil element in the oven. They usually short out to the frame when they go and can have some interesting results. A direct short probably burned out half of the circuit breaker and you are now only getting 120 volts to the stove and its feeding back through the shorted element and giving some heat. Unplug the stove reset the circuit breaker and test the outlet for proper power. Outer holes will read 220 volts to each other and 110 volts to the middle hole. Replace the circuit breaker if needed. Usually when an element burns out it is visible. If not remove both bake and broil elements and take them to the parts store and ask them to see which one is bad. It is very unlikely they both burned out.

Atlas La Stella double oven


Hello Roland,
happy to help you out!
You must clean by way of wiping excess spills and materials dripped or spilled before self clean is operated. Or there will be smoke even during the self clean process!
Also do not wait till there is build up galore to self clean your oven!
If you spill or splatted and drip in the oven that day,
start the self clean after you do the dinner dishes!
More info can be found int he owners manual!

On most models, the door stays locked during a self clean, until the temperature returns to normal for safety reasons.

It sounds like your unit may have tripped a breaker during this self clean event. Check your panel for a tripped breaker. If the oven has cooled down, and the lock is still engaged, then we may have a different problem.

Let me know what you find out!

Self cleaning oven door locked before I got the door closed.


Try holding in on the door switch while resetting the clean cycle.
This should rotate the latch. Once the cycle starts, cancel it. The latch should go to the unlock position.

You will have to hold in on the door switch during all these steps.

If this does not work, post back with the complete model number from the oven and I will see what else I can come up with.
