GE Profile XL44 Spectra gas oven

Yesterday I put the oven through the self-clean cycle and it seemed to run fine. I pressed self-clean, the display showed 4.00 hours, I hit start and off it went. The display then showed "oven clean/locked door", and the timer ran down from 4.00 hours. When the cycle ended 4 hours later, I had a clean oven, however, the locked door display would not go off. My husband managed to get the door open, but now the oven will not work - bake or broil. When I try to select the bake or broil function, it will not allow me to set the temperature. The range top burners all work. The door opens and closes and appears to latch properly. I set it to run the self-clean cycle again, and the display showed all of the appropriate messages, however the oven door did not lock. I stopped the cycle after about 10 minutes. Probably important: about 1 year ago I had food placed too close to the broiler and the oven caught fire. It was quickly extinguished, but ever since I turn on the oven to bake or broil, the top of the range gets hot - hotter than it used to. It is almost too warm to the touch, as if I burned through the insuluation. I have not put the oven through the self-clean cycle since the oven fire - until yesterday. I have been baking and broiling without incident until yesterday.

    I have the same problem - my GE Profile XL44 Spectra gas oven quit working. I had left some food warming - below 200 degrees - a beeper went off as though the cooking timer or kitchen timer had been set. No timer was set. My daughter turned off the oven. It hasn't worked since.

    My Profile XL44 started taking forever to come up to baking temp a couple years ago. I cleaned and all worked again. Now same thing and I had been doing long slow cooks @ 200 degrees. Suddenly the baking element does not work. I self clean and it works for one week then quits again. Now during clean the cycle ends early because the akng element does not come on --- please help! It worked fine last week!

Hi I had a very similar issue that I finally resolved yesterday. I ran the self-clean cycle but wanted to go to bed so hit cancel with about 1 hour to go. The oven showed "door locked" but I simply thought this was because the oven still had to cool.

In the morning though the oven still showed "door locked" and I was unable to open door. I spent hours trying to find a solution on the internet plus on the phone with GE. Then yesterday I finally fixed the problem.

Hopefully this will help others with the same issue.

If you have the same problem where the door is continually locked after a self clean cycle unplug your oven for at least 24hrs. Next gently lift the door by the handle and wiggle it upwards. If you do this correctly you can get the oven door open. However do not force it! Just gently wiggle the door upwards and forwards and it should open without any issue..

Next plug the cooker back in. If like me the cooker still shows "door locked" you need to do 1 more step. On the front left of the cooker just behind the door there is a black button. Push this button and hold it in, then press the cancel button and hold both for about 30 secs.

If you have doen everything correctly the door should unlock and you can use the oven for cooking again!

    You are a genius, GE should hire you!!!! I have had problems since the 1st time I used the self-clean, atmleastm81/2 years. I have had the run around since a then. I loved the " oven hasn't cooled enough" a 2 days later still flashing... that was the first time I used it. No one seems to have a clue. Since mine doesn't have a manual door latch, I'm guessing it is a combination of the latch assembly and..... the new door hinges used after 1999. Maybe I should be happy about that because I could jiggle it open. Yesterday, I found an article about hinges and reseating the door. Also I spent 2 hours on the phone with GE troubleshooting not a clue, then on hold from her to customer service for 27 minutes and after chatting.... not a clue... transferred to ???? ASK and not a clue. I did note that a search revealed the same problems I was having with not locking door and then door not unlocking. I was sure I wasn't the only one. Thank you, it has been a very frustrating ordeal for many years.

Carol, let me see if I can help you with this. First try killing the power to the oven for 30 seconds and see if the locking mech resets. If nothing changes try this: kill the power for at least ten seconds, power back up,simultaneously press the cooking time, delay start and the number 8 pad. Test should appear in the display. Press and hold the self clean key, this will test the lock motor and cam assy. The display should show 2 on the left (for locked) and change to 3 on the left for unlocked. Travel time of the cam will display a 0 between locked and unlocked. You must hold the self clean key for these changes. This latch mechanism is thermally controlled and sends a message to the main board to lock and unlock during self cleaning. We are just bypassing this with this test. Your temperature sensor may have gone bad during the self cleaning cycle. This is the probe located in the oven cavity. If you know anyone that is handy with a meter, it should ohm out at 1092 ohms at room temp. If this checks out, someone will have to open the top and check the lock motor and cam. Catriver..post back.

Most likely the oven ignitor is bad or weak.  You can look at it and see how it compares to the broil ignitor.  If you see a whitish color on the ignitor and if it doesn't fully glow then it needs to be replaced.

How does the self-clean feature work on a Frigidaire CFEF366EMB model?


Hi Beverly,

I understand that you are looking to run your self-clean feature on your Frigidaire range, model# CFEF366EMB.

-To start this you will remove all racks and make sure that any excessive spillovers are cleaned up as best as you can.
-Next you will press the "Clean" button, and the display will show "---".
-Press the up or down arrows to select the length of time you want the oven to clean. Usually 2 or 3 hours.
-The door will automatically lock once your time has been chosen and the "LOCK" indicator light will flash. DO NOT open the door while the light is flashing. (it takes about 15 seconds for the oven door to lock).
-"Cln" will appear in the display during the self-clean cycle and the "LOCK" light will continue to glow until the self-cleaning cycle is complete or cancelled and the oven has cooled.

When the self-clean cycle has completed:
-The time of day or "END" will appear in the display window and the "Clean" and "LOCK" light will continue to glow.
-Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 HOUR and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can be opened.
-If "END" is in the display and the Clean indicator light remains ON, press the "CLEAR/OFF" button and the time of day will appear on the display.
-When the oven is cool, wipe away any residue or powdered ash with a damp cloth or paper towel.

-Best Regards-

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.

Lost Manual and would like instruction on how to set for self clean cycle?


Make sure you have everything out of the oven, including the oven racks.

1. Press SELF CLEAN.
2. Press the TEMP/TIME "+" or "-" arrow pads to enter the desired self-clean cycle.
3. Press START.
The oven door will automatically lock. The DOOR LOCKED and CLEAN indicator lights will be
displayed.
4. When the self-clean cycle is complete and the oven cools, the DOOR LOCKED and CLEAN
indicator lights will turn off.
5. When the oven is completely cooled, remove ash with a damp cloth.

Recommended times are 2 hours 30 minutes for light soil and 4 hours 30 minutes for heavy soil.

If your oven has a HI and LO self clean time, HI is 4 hours 30 minutes and LO is 3 hours 30 minutes.

It is also recommended that you remove anything plastic from the top of the stove during cleaning.

I need direction on how to start the clean cycle on my jenn air


CLEAN PAD
Use to set a self-clean cycle or a delayed
self-clean cycle. One press of the Clean
pad sets up an immediate clean cycle. A
second press of the Clean pad sets up a
delayed clean cycle.
• Clean oven
frame, door
frame (area
outside of gasket)
and
around the
opening in the door gasket with a nonabrasive
cleaner such as Bon Ami*. These
areas are not exposed to cleaning temperatures.
• Remove air grille.
• Remove oven racks. If racks are left in
during a clean cycle, it may impair function
and they will discolor. Turn off the
oven light and close door.
* Brand names for cleaning products are
registered trademarks of the respective
manufacturers.
TO SET FOR IMMEDIATE START:
1. Press Clean pad once.
2. Press the Auto Set pad for 3 hours of
cleaning time, press again for 4 hours
and again if 2 hours of clean time are
desired.
3. CLEANING and LOC plus the clean
time will appear in the display.
4. When the clean cycle is complete,
CLEANED will be displayed. LOC will
remain on until the oven has cooled
(approx. 1 hour).
5. When the oven is cool, LOC will no
longer be displayed and the door may be
opened.
6. Wipe out the oven interior with a damp
cloth. If soil remains it indicates the
cycle was not long enough.

TO CANCEL SELF-CLEAN:
1. Press Cancel pad.
2. If LOC is NOT displayed, open oven
door. If LOC is displayed, allow oven to
cool.

Oven door won't unlock


I had the same problem on my Kenmore Electric Range. Door would not unlock. Tried pressing "Off" for multiple seconds, but still would not unlock. No error codes. Clock was displaying normally. Finally decided to try running it thru the self cleaning operation to get it to cycle thru locking and unlocking the door. When I started self clean, the door automatically went thru the auto lock and "locked" appeared in the display. I then hit "Off" to clear it and stop the cleaning cycle. The door then unlocked as normal!
