How do I enter the secret Programming mode on a Miele DG 6401 steam oven to perform a total software reset?

Press and hold the timer button (the bell picture), and whilst doing that press and hold the power button. Then let go of both at the same time. Then press the timer button 5 more times, but on the fifth time hold for a few seconds. Once in Programming mode play with the options to reset and restart descaling.

Reset Miele steam oven - enter hidden programming mode

My Miele was stuck in a loop repeatedly asking for more water, and then I got it stuck in a descale loop. I called Miele to ask them how to 'reboot' the factory settings, but all they would suggest is me booking a visit from an engineer. Expensive and pointless.

However, I then managed to find a video of someone entering the hidden Programming Mode for another model, and the same button combination worked for me.

Press and hold the timer button (the one with a bell picture on it) and then press and hold the power button at the same time, and let go of both together at the same time.

Then press the timer button alone 5 more times, and on the 5th press, hold for a few seconds. From there I played around with a few options until I found one that reset and restarted the descaling. I've linked to the video where he enters Programming mode after 2 minute mark.

Outer glass door brackets dropped off

Hi Anne,
I've come across this before. Short of buying a replacement door, the best option is to stick everything back together with a good quality clear silicone adhesive/filler, but make sure that you degrease the area completely otherwise it won't stick. It's best to do this when the oven's warm to the touch. Strap everything well and leave it to cure overnight. Then heat the oven to about 100degC for an hour or two to complete the curing process.

Oven fan keeps sticking

The only permanent solution is replace the complete fan motor.
The problem is the motor bearings have dried out.

I started the self-cleaning process on my GE electric oven last night. The process is complete but the oven door will not unlock. It sounds like it keeps running and running.

You can start the self cleaning cycle again and then stop it after 15 minutes, then let the oven cool for sometime and check if the door opens again, if it wont work then press the CANCEL button for 20 seconds. If the issue returns then you have to take a screw driver and open the latch. After this the latch mechanism should be replaced as it is bad. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Why does the Oven take so long to light?

It sounds like it might be a sticking gas control valve for the oven or the hot surface igniter for the oven might be weak. You will need to turn the oven on and off completely several times until the problem happens. When I say completely I mean turn on the oven control and watch the igniter start to glow. Then when the oven burner comes on(should within a minute) shut of the oven control and wait for the igniter to stop glowing completely and burner to shut off completely. Then repeat the process again. If you try it about 10 times and nothing happens then the problem will be difiicult to identify. If you turn on the oven control and the igniter comes on but the gas burner does not then try giving the gas control valve(located in brolier/storage compartment) a tap with a wrench. If the burner suddenly comes on then the control valve was sticking. Try repeating the shut down/turn on process again. If it does not do it again you may have fixed the problem...if it does you will need to remove the igniter and test it with an ohm meter(should read at least 500 to 800 ohms). If the igniter is testing good and glowing brightly then the gas control valve would be the suspected problem. And remeber to be very careful when doing these testing procedures so you do not hurt yourself.

Is there such a thing as a descaling unit for a blodgett combi oven model bc14g/ab

These combi ovens are so prone to problems if you do not have descaling filter system hooked to the COLD water supply (the only water that should be fed to this unit) for your generator inlet. The other water hookup is for your condensate drain (condenses steam leaving cook chamber headed down the drain) and it does not need to be filtered but, also needs to be COLD. These decaling units are quite pricey but, a service call to replace the generator (boiler in laymens terms) will cost 3 times as much & the unit will be down for days waiting on parts. Call Blodgett w/ your model # & talk w/ technical service & ask their recomendation. They can be reached @800-331-5842 & follow the prompts. Depending on your water conditions it is still recomended to descale the unit on a regular basis using a QUALITY descaler (not the junk you buy from Sysco or Dollar general) Cleveland descaler is the BEST.
