    Everytime I selfclean my oven, it shuts down and the repair people have to come and replace the thermostat. They've also installed spacers and a bracket that haven't helped. I've complained since day one as this is a safety hazard, The oven overheats during the self cleaning process. I'm afraid it could cause a fire.

    After starting the Self Cleaning Mode the Display went blank and the Oven Door stayed locked. The Burner Igniters still work on the Stove Top and I tried resetting the power to the unit but this did not fix the problem.

Please call directly to KitchenAid/Whirpool and speak to the 'executive management team' - when I spoke to them they said this wasnt a common problem, they were not aware of the fault.. EVERYONE with this fault please call again.

Replacing the fuse each or not using the self clean function is not a fix!

I started a self clean on my oven, and then shut it off, the door opened, now it will not close, seem like the latch is in the lock posistion. help


For an oven self cleaning problem, the first thing to check is the door lock motor and switch assembly. Every self cleaning oven door has a locking mechanism to prevent the door from being opened during the cleaning cycle. An oven self cleaning problem often happens after a clean cycle has been run. If that happens, more often then not the lock assembly will need to be replaced. The door lock motor and switch assembly, over time, fail due to the high temperatures that are encountered during the cleaning cycle.
Here is the part to order.

All parts come with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

How do i operate the self cleaning function


Hello - Before using the self-cleaning cycle of the appliance, remove the broiler pan and any utensils stored in the appliance. Also remove any excess spillovers in the oven cavity. Allow the oven to cool before cleaning. During the self-cleaning cycle, the outside of the wall oven can become very hot to the touch.

Typically to set the controls for a self-clean the first step is to confirm that the clock shows the correct time of the day. Press CLEAN. "---" appears in the display. Press the UP ARROW or DOWN ARROW once. "3:00" appears in the display for a 3 hour cycle. To change to a 2 hour cycle press DOWN ARROW"2:00" appears in the display. As soon as the controls are set, the motor drive lock will begin to close automatically and the "LOCK" indicator light will flash. DO NOT open the oven door while the light is flashing (it takes about 15 seconds for the over door to lock). "CLn" will appear in the display during the Self-Clean cycle and the "LOCK" light will glow until the Self-Cleaning cycle is complete or cancelled and the oven temperature has cooled.

When the Self-Clean cycle has completed, the time of the day or "End" will appear in the display window and the "Clean" and "LOCK" light will continue to glow. Once the over has cooled down for about 1 HOUR and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can be opened. If "End" is the display and the Clean indicator light remains ON, press CLEAR/OFF. The time of the day will appear in the display.

If it becomes necessary to stop or interrupt a Self-Cleaning cycle, press CLEAR/OFF. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 HOUR and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can be opened. Restart the Self-Clean cycle once all conditions have been corrected.

When baking my oven door is not locked is it supposed to be?and if so how do we lock it.


The locking of the oven door is a safety feature used only during automatic self cleaning cycle, this is because temperatures during the self clean cycle can reach upwards of 600+ degrees creating a dangerous situation if the door was opened, it will remain locked after the self cleaning cycle is complete until the oven interior temperature is below 100 degrees. So no the door is not normally locked during the bake cycle. Good luck !

My oven door will not shut all the way. It


It is probably the self-cleaning latch that keeps the door from being opened during the self-cleaning cycle. Looks like it didn't retract all the way. Did you use the self-cleaning cycle? . Do this: Quiet the house down, open the door slightly and close it, letting it hit the obstruction. Do this again and again. You don't have to close it hard at all; in fact, do it gently. By listening, you will be able to hone in what is keeping it opened. Then go from there.

My oven is locked and wont open. it is cold and wont unlock


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. The locking of the oven is a safety measure while self clean function is activated. Once the oven has completed the cycle & has cooled down, then it will reset the door lock.

If a self clean oven door lock fails to open after the self clean cycle and sufficient cooling time has elapsed (approximately 1 hour), there are several things you can try.
  1. Unplug the unit or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Plug the unit back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and gently try moving the door lock lever (is so equipped) or opening the door.
  2. Set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for 15 minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever (is so equipped) or opening the door.
If these procedures fail to correct the condition or you were not using the self clean cycle, then, the lock must usually be accessed and moved manually to open the door—

In order to open the door you have to open the control panel and remove the door lock.

Remove the three screws from the bottom of the control panel. You'll heed a 1/4" open wrench. Pull the bottom of the control panel toward yourself and push it up to release from the upper tabs.
The door lock is secured by the three screws.


Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.
Thanks

DOOR SHOWS OPEN BUT IT IS NOT


After self cleaning the range the door won't open....
The oven door lock needs approximately 1 hour to cool down before the oven door can be opened after a self cleaning cycle has finished. If the lock does not open after the oven has cooled down, you can try....1) Unplugging the range or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Plug the range back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and try moving the door lock lever or opening the door. 2) Set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for 15 minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever or opening the door.


Hope this may help;

On most models, the door stays locked during a self clean, until the temperature returns to normal for safety reasons.

It sounds like your unit may have tripped a breaker during this self clean event. Check your panel for a tripped breaker. If the oven has cooled down, and the lock is still engaged, then we may have a different problem.

Let me know what you find out!
