Is this range electric? if so then does it bake or broil ok? if the answer to both the questions is yes!.. I don't think you need a new range, Cleaning cycle is based on both elements working along with other componets , if you are an handy man there is a mini manual on the range somewhere it could be inside the back panel, that will give you some info, if you are able to read the wiring diagrams ect, or could be your digital control, if you donot feel good about this and most don't I would call a good service Tech...

How to use the self clean feature for a Frigidaire FES 355 ASF


Hi Anonymous, this is AP!

I understand you are interested in the self-clean process for your Frigidaire slide in range, model FES355ASF. Start by removing all excess spillovers in the oven cavity before starting the self-cleaning cycle. To clean, use hot soapy water and a cloth. Large spillovers can cause heavy smoke or fire when subjected to high temperatures. Clean any soil from the oven frame and the door liner, but avoid cleaning the oven door gasket. These areas heat sufficiently during self-cleaning cycle to burn soil on. Clean with soap and water. Remove the oven racks, broiler pan and insert, all utensils and any foil. These items do not withstand high cleaning temperatures

Make sure the clock shows the correct time of day. Push the CLEAN button "---"will appear on display. Push the up arrow button until "3:00" appears for a 3 hour clean cycle or push the down arrow until "2:00" is displayed for a 2 hour clean cycle. Once the time is selected and released CLn will appear on the display. The door will then automatically lock and the LOCK indicator light will flash. Do not open the door while the indicator is flashing, usually about 15 seconds. The LOCK display will stay until the cleaning cycle is complete or cancelled, and the oven temperature has cooled to a safe temperature.

In the event you need to stop the cycle at any point, simply push the CLEAR OFF button and the door will automatically lock once the oven has cooled, usually about an hour.

Best of luck,

Whirlpool RS385PXBQ0 slide in range/oven won't work after self-cleaning cycle.


Check the wiring on the door lock. If that looks good you need to replace the door lock but that part is no longer available.

After using self cleaning feature...oven door locks up...4th time this has happened...kitchenaid says "no known issues with your unit or the problem you reported...can you halp


Hello - we have had this same issue a number of times as well. Do you lose all power on the unit too? We do - have discovered that using the self-cleaning isn't really a good idea with these ovens. The ovens aren't really made to heat to such high heats that are used in the cleaning cycle and during that last hour of cleaning it hits it highest peak - and it blows it's fuses. We recently blew 2 fuses at the same time, locking both doors (Double oven) and knocking out the power for the entire unit. Our repair man said that the average on wall ovens is anywhere between 6 - 12 cleanings before you will blow the same fuses and the whole cycle starts all over again. Our expense was $350. So, self-cleaning now means elbow grease around this house. How this information was a bit helpful for you.

The digital panel is displaying -F1- and will not


Here is some wisdom for understanding F1 fault codes.

In some models, there are subcodes that make diagnosis even easier.

Here's a simple explanation of what's going on and how to troubleshoot:

The F1 code indicates that:


a. The electronic range control (ERC) is sensing heat in the oven when in a time-of-day (i.e., not cooking) mode.

b. The ERC is receiving information to run multiple heat functions simultaneously.


Although different components (depending upon the model) could generate the code, simple and straightforward testing using your ohm meter is all you gotta do to test for it.

1. Check the oven temperature sensor. The oven sensor has to be within spec or it will cause the F1 code.
As an example of being out-of-spec, the ERC will generate an F1 fault code when the sensor shows 1650 ohms during a time-of-day mode.
This is equivalent to 350°F in the oven.
The resistance isn't high enough to generate an F2 code (runaway temp) or an F3 or F4 code (shorted/open sensor circuit).
The ERC monitors the sensor circuit after a heat cycle and expects the resistance to drop back to 1050-1100 ohms.
The fault code is generated when this doesn't happen. Checking the sensor circuit means also checking the harness,
harness connections and the sensor itself.

2. If the oven sensor circuit checks okay, then turn your inquisitive eyeballs to the touchpad.
If the range has a separate touchpad/keyboard, the keypad may have moisture that is shorting several circuits simultaneously.
If the F1 code is given immediately (instead of during or after a heat cycle),
remove the ribbon connector from the touchpad to the ERC after clearing the F1 code. If the F1 code does not return in five minutes,
then cast a suspicious gaze upon the touchpad/keyboard. Shorts may be caused by using an ammonia-based glass cleaner.
The touchpad surface will absorb ammonia-based cleaners that are sprayed directly on the glass surface. When heat is applied,
the surface material can break down causing shorts.
If you're gonna use ammonia-based cleaners on your control panel, then you should spray it on the rag and then wipe the touchpanel
-don't spray directly onto the surface of the touchpad.

3. On Amana ranges with a rotary temperature dial, be sure that the knob is in the OFF position when performing tests.

4. If these tests all check good, then replace the ERC.

Can I use the stovetop when my oven is self cleaning?


Yes you should be able to but there are a couple things to consider. When the oven is in the self-cleaning cycle the heating element reaches a very high tempature and runs for extended periods. So if you have a couple top burners going the amperage draw could possibly trip the electrical breaker. Also there is a lot of heat generated around the range during the cleaning cycle and it may be to hot to actually work around the range. There are some ranges that dis-able the top burners during the self-clean cycle. If that is the case with your range then the answer would be no. The way you would know for sure is to try them during the self-cleaning cycle or consult your owners manual.

Cant get the oven to turn off from the cleaning setting and its just making a loud beeping sound, had to unplug.


After unplugging, allow the oven cooling down for few hours.

If the beeping restart, then the high temperature generated in self cleaning cycle may have damaged temp probe, door latch, or electronic control.
Parts must be tested to discover the fault.

Call Frigidaire at the number listed on the owners manual.

Regards.

Hello JJ, Try pressing the "Clear/OFF" button to stop the self cleaning cycle. It will take up to an hour before the oven will unlock the door, if the oven has started to heat up for the cleaning process

You may have started the default 3 hour self-clean cycle, so you can attempt to reduce the time to 2 hours, by pushing the timer down so it displays "2" which would indicate the shorter cleaning cycle. Then at the end of the timed cleaning cycle, it should open up, once the temperature has cooled sufficiently for it to be safe to open, again, which takes up to an hour to sufficiently cool.

Typically, when an oven is accidently put into self clean mode, the timer "kicks in" and the timer has to run out before the oven will unlock. With the older mechanical knob timers, you could just rotater the timer until you reached the end of the pre-set time. With the electronic timers, you have to let the timer "count down" until it reaches zero before the oven will unlock the oven door.

Here's a link to the Frigidare site where you can select your specific FEF352 version and download a owners manual, free of charge.

http://www.frigidaire.com/manuals

Just enter in FEF352 and then scroll down the page until you find your particular version of teh FEF352 oven/range and then click on "complete owners guide" (english) to get the manual in an Adobe pdf format.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Thermador SM272 - Oven not heating after self clean cycle


Your repairman might be right but I would have checked the main heating element first for this reason: The self-clean cycle uses that same element as you need for the oven but is allowed to rise to a much higher temperature (~ 900-950 degrees) during the cleaning cycle and it may have self-destructed. Since your problem started after the cleaning cycle, I would have checked the element for continuity first.

Thermador Oven won't heat after running self-cleaning cycle


SOunds like you need to reset the oven high limit switch. It should be located behind the grille obave the oven opening and below the control panel. There should be about 4-6 screws you need to take out to remove the grille to gain access. Turn the power of to the oven at the circuit breaker, then rech in with a screwdriver and push down on the little red button in the center of the hig limit until it clicks. the high limit should be about as big around as a quarter and have a wire going into one side and out the other. If this keeps tripping, you may have a bad cooling fan. When you run a self clean it should also run a fan to cool the components. You should be able to feel a breeze coming out of the bottom of the oven when the cooling fan (not the convection fan ) is running. If this fan doesnt run, it will trip that switch. Hope this helps!
