Old Amana - no manual; can't operate self clean feature

My Mom has an old Amana Electric oven with a self clean feature but we're not sure how it works. There is a "clean" setting on one of the dials and a door lock but nothing happens when we lock the door and turn the dial. Should we set the temp for 500 and then use the clean setting? It's an old stove and we no longer have the manual. Thanks!

Can you locate the model number on the oven? Also any particular name of the stove? The manufactured year. These should all be available on a stainless steel or aluminum attached plate , probably on the back of the stove or inside the door.
I wouldn't try using the self cleaning feature until we get some advice. it could lock up on you and not UNLOCK. Normally self cleaning takes place at 600 or more degrees .

I'm sure others still have the same stove., I will see what I can find for you.

When you use self clean the 900 degree temperature damages the electronics. I do not advise using that feature. Get some oven cleaner and do it the old fashioned way. My opinion.

Just use some easy off and do not use the self clean feature. Clean it the old fashioned way. Self clean ruins expensive electronics.

Your thermal fuse or TOD mounted to the back of the oven went out during the self clean,it shuts off the power to the elements.

I have an electric Maytag stove/oven but don't know how to use the self cleaning feature. What do I do?


Dear cooper1914,

There are two types of Ovens that clean themselves.
1) A Self-Cleaning Oven which usually gets locked 1st then set on Self-Clean.
2) A Continuous-Cleaning Oven which is constantly cleaning

Some people prefer the old fashion clean by hand with degreasers but I prefer Self-Clean or Continuous-Clean as there is no need for harsh potent cleaners!

If you have a Self-Cleaning or Continuous-Clean Oven Do Not Clean With Cleaners as it will ruin the flavor of your oven!
