Question about Viking DEDO205 Stainless Steel Electric Double Oven
I have a dual oven from viking. The problem is with the self cleaning
the unit will not self clean and the bottom oven will not turn on
It is a matter of personal choice to whether you remove the rack`s or not, no harm will come to you from not removing them but...If they are chrome finished they will become very dull and look like bbq grills over time and in extreme cases, warp and consequently not fit well.
If they are finished with enamel to match the oven liner, don`t worry, they are designed to be left in place, even during self clean cycles.
As for how you can clean them. You can do this by removing them and with a suitable work space (a bath tub or laundry tub works great) with regular oven cleaner`s, (preferably environmentally friendly...check your local by-laws) or other household cleaners with the assistance of a scrub pad and elbow grease. Be sure and rinse them thoroughly when finished with the cleaner`s.
Hope that help`s. If so, please take a second to rate the solution provided by me here at fixya. Thank you.

The "Self Clean" will run for quite a while up to 4 hours I believe, during this time, the stove heats up to about 900 degrees!! and during this time the Door is automatically closed via special locks. It will allow you to open once it is finished, it should "Signal" this event.

not sure. its possible that something melted into the hinges and glued it shut. or i guess if it got hot enough the metal could have been heated up to a point where it was bent out of shape and thus it got stuck

SOURCE: How do I use
First make sure you remove everything from inside the oven. Including the racks. Wipe up any large spills inside the oven.
here is how to use the Self-Clean Cycle
1. Close the door completely.
2. Select "UPPER OVEN" or "LOWER OVEN." "SELECT
MODE" will appear in the display for the selected oven.
3. Press "SELF CLEAN" from the oven function control panel.
4. Press "SET" or "ENTER." At this time, "SELF CLEAN" will
appear in the display. The door lock indicator light will
remain on until the Self-Clean is completed or interrupted
and the oven temperature drops to a safe temperature.
A complete cycle takes approximately 3 1/2 hours, with an
additional 30 minutes needed for the oven to cool down
enough for the door latch to disengage.
NOTE: A whirring fan noise will be heard during the Self-
Clean Cycle and will continue to run for the 3 1/2 hour
duration of the Self-Clean Cycle.
5. The timer will count down from 4 hours. When the cycle is
completed, press the "OFF" button for the selected oven.
6. When the oven has completely cooled, open the door and
remove any ash from the oven surfaces with a damp cloth.
7. To cancel or interrupt the self-cleaning cycle, press the
"OFF" button for the selected oven.
