Need to know how to self clean a whirlpool oven... Model number RF302BXDW it is suppose to be a self cleaner, but does not have a cleaning mode.

I checked the owners guide here:

The cleaning steps are on page 23 of the manual.

Note the comments about using a commercial oven cleaner

("Easy Off" is one oven cleaning product that works well)

One product I find that works well on all oven surfaces is Mr Muscle kitchen cleaner. I have a real hard time finding it in the USA stores. Product image and description Link below:

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

How do I use the self-cleaning function on my Whirlpool Super Capacity 465 self-cleaning oven?

If you just want to run the basic self-clean cycle. First remove the broiler pan and racks from the oven. Next clean any heavy spills up with a non-abrasive cleaner (do not use an oven cleaner). Clean the window of the oven door and the door frame (to the outside of the gasket). Then close the oven. If the oven has a touch-pad, press the Auto-clean pad on the oven followed by Start. The oven will automatically lock and then unlock when the oven has cooled after the cleaning cycle. (I'm less certain of the control settings for the dial type of oven control.)

In order to get your manual you need the full model number of the oven. This is on a plate located behind the storage door. This pdf,$FILE/4322089.pdf , gives you a picture of where the model and serial numbers are is on page 4 as well as some of the information contained in the serial number on the subsequent pages.

Once you have your model number, go to and enter the model number. This should let you get the manual specific to your oven.

I hope this helps.

I have a Maytag gas stove and the 2 of the burners are clogged. We rent and don't have a manual for it, so I'm kinda flying blindly here. Don't want to break anything. It says it's self cleaning but...

Most major manufacturers supply manuals online so if you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, you may be pleasantly surprised as usually, if available, one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, Dealer Network for spare part supplies as required.

The information is normally free of charge.

I hope this helps.

The micrwave buttons not working I mean the front buttons that has clock timer start etc. looks like it is circuit board

Did someone perhaps clean the pad with a wet rag or spray cleaner on it? This will make it inoperable and will sometimes self correct with time. Most times not and the pad has to be replaced.

The Oven getting lock after self cleaning is not uncommon.

That is caused by the high temperature reached on self cleaning, that can jam the control board or damage the door lock or the temperature probe.

Try first tripping circuit breaker or disconnecting power cord for five minutes.
After restarting try the oven.
If the oven still does not work, then hold down the cancel button for ten seconds.

If still no luck, then the oven is faulty in consequence of the extreme temperature reached in self cleaning.

If the Oven has regular display, then faulty part is usually the temperature probe.

If oven has no display, then the control board may had been damaged.

I can understand what problems a faulty oven can be in this moment.

Try first the reset, if that does not work, ring the number listed at the end of the owners manual to see if today any technician is available.

A local technician could easily put back the oven to work, replacing the probe, the point is that it will be difficult to find a technician right now.

Let me know if the reset works.

Difficulty cleaning Electrolux High Speed Oven

Most that say no oven cleaner have a self clean. If your does not. Take ammonia and wipe inside down and set a bowl of it inside over night. This will help a lot. One of my grandmothers tricks. It works great.
