Does the Broiler Work? Make sure you have 220 Volts to the Oven. Take the 220 breaker and push if all the way off and then snap it back to the On position. If the Broiler works and the bottom elements doesn't get hot you have a element out. They are not to hard to change. Shut power off to oven and take the screw out at the back in the middle of the element and the elements pulls out and then unhook the wires and replace with a new one. If you have a volt meter you can OHM out the heating element. You should get a buzzing noise if it is good. The other part of the equation is the temperature control that could be bad so use your Volt Meter to do some minor checks before you start replacing parts. Hope this Helps!

What temp & time to clean self cleaning oven

a self cleaning oven will have a setting that is specific for this. It will heat up to around 550f for 4-6 hours and will apply a safety latch to prevent the door from being opened. You cannot achieve this type of cleaning without going into the "self-scleaning
" mode as the temps are higher that what is available with your normal settings

We have a 24" wall

The problem is due to the door latch and specially one of the two micro switches is not contact properly that is why when you cracked little the oven can work little better. So all you need is check the latch at the back and if nessesary replace the latch

I have a 1960s GE P7 oven that will not heat. How can I test the WB 22x53 switch? Could it be the latch release switch or the oven temp rheostat? The oven makes a humming noise when the dial is turned...

you can test any switch or relay or capacitors on the control board with an ohmmeter in the ohm setting. If low or no resistance, then it is bad. You can get any parts and manual at or

Auto oven cleaner

I removed the two screws that hold the warning plate that has the latch coming through it. This allows the oven lock lever and latch to move around. you will see the shiny base of bracket that holds the lever and latch mechanism. I took a plain butter knife and pushed back the insulation to see the switch. I then put the butter knife against the switch and rapped it fairly hard with the screwdriver handle 3 or 4 times. Put the plate back and screws back. Turned on the breaker and was good as new.

Tools needed.. butter knife and nutdriver to fit screws.

Self-cleaning feature of GE Built-In Oven does not work

Simply set the Clock and Delay Start to the current time, then set the Stop Time ahead 3 hours. For example, if it is currently 8:00 then set the Stop Time to 11:00. The lights on the console will come on and the cleaning cycle will begin. At some point during the cycle when the oven gets hot enough, the lock mechanism is "fixed" and will not release until the cycle is complete.

Self Clean won't start - Amana ACS3350AS Gas Kitchen Range

Our door on this oven is coming apart, so the oven door never truly closes.  When you set the self clean cycle, push the door shut until it locks... at least this has worked for me.  But I think all your problems, which are similar to mine, result from the oven door not truly closing... heat escapes, so the temp is not right and takes forever to heat up.  The heat melts the control panel, causing other problems.  In fact, our door is starting to fall open... a bit dangerous.
Good luck!

Oven light always on, no heat

probably the clock not set properly - you have the oven on automatic. switch off at mains, wait 5 mins and set the clock according to the manual. if the over-temp stat has operated, the oven goes dead
