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.

I have a Whirlpool electric build in oven with self-cleaning feature. It is about 8 years old and we just used the self-cleaning feature for the first time last week. The oven was not that dirty, but...


Your thermal fuse or TOD mounted to the back of the oven went out during the self clean,it shuts off the power to the elements.
 The oven must be removed from the wall to change this.

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!

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.

Oven shut down during Self-cleaning


tde, sounds like your thermal fuse (TC0) opened on the back side of the oven. If this opens, it will shut the oven down. This happens alot during self cleaning on built ins. Sometimes I have to re-route the tco to a different area to prevent this from happening. Your part number is 4451442. You will have to pull the oven out far enough to remove the back paneling and replace the fuse....Catriver..post back.
