Hi

These kinds of issues are usually caused in ovens if a self cleaning cycle is used after a long time. The issue can either be a bad door switch/lock assembly or the oven temp. sensor itself that has gone bad. To solve this issue start by checking the oven temp. sensor for 1100 ohms, if the rating is more then that then check the control and door switch and replace the part that is bad. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Need manual for self cleaning, please?


Hello Mary;

You can get a user manual at the following website.

Locate your oven model number. It is located on a label either on the face of the oven when you open the door or on the side of the door. Put he model number into the website and you will get diagrams, component part numbers and manuals.

http://www.searspastsdirect.com/

I suspect the user manual is not going to help you. Tell me the model number and what is going on.

Manufacturers offer the self cleaning feature on ovens because customers like this feature and the ovens sell. Yet, the manufacturers engineers have not been able to provide a design that will protect all of the components from self cleaning temperature of 900-1,000 degree F.

When you go into the self cleaning model, the door will lock when you reach 500-550 Degree F. The oven temperature will raise to 900-1,000 degrees F. The oven door will not open until the oven temperature drops to 500 degree F after the self cleaning cycle is completed.

Now, You have a high temperature limit switch in your oven. If this switch fails, you will loose power to your control board and you will not be able to open the oven door.

If you have never used your self cleaning feature, the high temperature limit switch may have failed.

Do to the problems involved with the self cleaning feature, knocking out the control board from heat, additional heating element failure, and other components; It is in my professional recommendation as well as my fellow technicians not to use the self cleaning feature. If you do, do not run it for more than 1 hour instead for the manual 4 hours.

Oven (indicator light) clicks on and off


Start the self clean and then move the bar over so it will lock and complete the self clean cycle.

Oven temp heats higher than set


The control board is bad. One of the relays has fused and you will need to replace the control board.

We purchased our Frigidare Double Oven, Model Number FPET3085KFA, October 2009 (15 months ago). We ran the self-clean process for the first time yesterday on the top oven using the 4 hr option and it...


try turning your breaker off for 20 minutes, then try it again,, if this does not help it could have burnt out a element or the main board has went out,,, also make for sere you are getting the full 220 volts to the unit,, this will involve taking the unit out

How long does the oven take for the self-cleaning cycle?


Most self clean cycles take 4 hrs.The oven is gradually heated up to 950 degrees F which takes up to 1 hr and after the 4 hrs is up it takes some time for the oven to cool down before the door will unlatch at below 550 degrees. You can self clean your oven 2-3 times for the price of a can of oven cleaner and without the elbow grease involved. You should not use harsh oven cleaners on the soft porcelain on your oven liner or it could be damaged. Before you put your oven into self clean you should wipe out any excess spillage with a damp soapy cloth and after cleaning you wipe away the ash with a damp cloth. If you do not want the oven racks to take on a blueish to ugly gray tint do not leave them in the oven during the clean cycle.

had same problem, had computer checked out by profesisonal. Was ok. But it seems it is the control pad that clean cycle screws up. Try this (thanks to my wife and her experimental prowess). 1. turn oven on to custom broil. 2. push down temp button to 375. 3. press bake button. 4. You should now have up or down temp. We think you have to get past pre heat cycle in order for this to work. But work it does.
