After the cleaning cycle the unit has shut down. The display is dead as well as the oven light. The house breaker is not tripped.

I will check the electric to the unit this weekend.

Any suggestions ?

TCO ?
Fuse ?

Thanks in advance

SOURCE: Whirpool double oven shutdown during self cleaning operation and now is completely dead and the top oven door will not open.

Too bad someone didn't answer this sooner. Caused be poor air circulation in the unit. There is indeed a thermal fuse used in this unit. This problem has been around for a while and no real solution has been found. The closest "fix" is to remove the fuse, turn it around and only hook it down with the screw that faces the panel. The other screw hole is then bent to a 45 degree upward slant. This give the fuse a little breathing room.

SOURCE: My Kenmore Continuous Cleaning oven is older - it

If you are tripping a 50 A breaker, you have major problems. First check the breaker, to make sure it is in reality, tripping at 50 amps. As they get older they can suffer heat damage, and will trip at lower currents. How old is it? Does it visibly look like bad (burnt, etc) Is it loose on the mounting buss? Burnt smell? If everything checks out then go to the oven and look for loose connections. There will be heat where there is a 50 amp current draw. If the oven is suspect, I would seriously consider dumping it as soon as possible. This is serious fire safety hazard. Again, loose connections. Check all of them, both AC+ legs, Neutral, and ground.

Scholtes FE46 and the door is locked. Also no clock/timer lights. Temp/function and oven work but is locked even though completely cold.


Here are a couple of things to 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.

Door locked after self clean cycle.


Ensure you let the oven cool down completely after a clean cycle before trying to open the door.

If the door still won't open after a couple hours of cooling down, then go to the main power panel in your house and shut off the breaker to the oven. Leave it off for 5 minutes, then switch it back on again.

Then try the oven door again.

Good luck.

The display panel is blank, and none of the buttons work. It had been working earlier in the day, but is no longer functioning. Is there a breaker button?


Hi, Check to see if there are any lights working, such as the ones that come on when you open the oven doors. If there is absolutely no power going to the unit, check the household circuit breaker panel that services the oven.
An oven works at 240 volts so the circuit breaker for it will be a double breaker, similar to the ones
electric water heaters or air conditioning units. It may have tripped. If it is tripped, then
the lever connecting the two sides of the breaker will not line up with other breaker switches in the
breaker panel. If that is the case, shut down the breaker completely and then after about 10 seconds,
turn it back on. If it will not stay on, there is an electrical problem in the circuit going to the oven or the oven itself. Hope this helps. Let me know if your need more help.
Best,
Mark

Oven locked up


What breaker did you shut off? House breaker? Or the ovens internal breaker? My drop in has a set of push button breakers under the oven behind a fold down door. The fold down door is in place of a regular ovens pull out drawer. Check in there if you have one. The light are more than likely a warning somethings wrong. If this was just installed check to make sure it was grounded properly. Also check to make sure the AMP rating of the stove and the one in the house breaker box match up. The house one can be higher but not the other way around. Hope that helps.

Oven won't heat


Unplug the power cord for thirty minutes, this should reset the oven.
If this still does not work do the following:
Press clean and then cancel. This will reset the appliance.

If the error does not clear , then during the self cleaning cycle, the high temperature has probably damaged the temperature sensor probe, and it must be replaced.

Cleaned then Dead


nextwave, looks like you have a safety thermostat (TCO) on the back of the oven. Should have a red and red/white stripe wire going to it. If this opens it will cut the power to the display, part number is 316003606. The hardest part of this gig is pulling the oven out to change the t-stat out. Catriver.
