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.

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.

Describe how to access the self cleaning feature on the accubake oven and how long does it take?


Press the "Auto Clean" or "Precise Clean" button depending on the control type of your range. Then press start. The oven should lock and start the self-cleaning cycle. The cycle is usually 3 hours from start to finish and cannot be stopped once it has started heating. The range gets extremely hot and causes the inside of the oven to act like a catalyst to burn the grease. It will create smoke and odor depending on how dirty the inside of the oven is. Make sure to leave the exhaust fan on above the range to remove some of the heat. And definently do not do the cleaning cycle on a hot summer day!

When I use my self-cleaning on my oven it leaves a brown stain on the white plastic part outside my oven door. How do I clean the area that has browned?


Hello- The self-clean cycle heats the inside up to about 800deg. There is no existing plastic that can take the heat at the vent w/out discoloring. The stain is from the smoke produced when the stuff on the drip pan incinerates. Try some oxy-clean and a damp cloth. Try to predict or minimize spills with foil and drip pans. Techs call 'self-clean' the 'self-destruct' cycle. Using this function will reduce the life expectancy of any electric range. Let me know if this info helps-have more if needed- Thanks- ED

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!
