How Do I Use Self Clean Oven Feature?

My husband was our cook, and he passed away last fall. I can't find the owener's manual and can't figure out how to use the self cleaning feature on my oven. When I press "CLEAN", it beeps at me twice. I don't see a manual lock for the door. I'm not even sure it's a PER5705, but it is is a Maytag Performa, electric with a smooth rangetop (no exposed burners), stainless steel/black, with a storage drawer under the oven. Can anybody help a frustrated widow who's lost in the kitchen - with a dirty oven?? Thanks in advance.

    The rangetop burners all of a sudden started clicking and sparking for no reason and won't stop. We turned the power off for the last 30 hours but it continues. I've used a paper clip to make sure the hole below the igintors are clean, etc. What do I do - is it something I can fix myself?

Frigidaire GLEF378ASE range oven cuts off during self cleaning mode.

My advice is never to use the self cleaning feature. Each time you use it you are a little closer to breaking something, elements, fans, door latches and one poor man who had a burned / melted control board which was obsolete so he had to purchase a new range. We see it here all the time. It is a great way to sell spare parts. 800 to 1000'F is just too severe for the parts.

GE PS950SF1SS, self clean no longer works for either oven. After starting self clean door will lock but the self clean cycle shuts off after 30 seconds, same for either oven

The self clean function is a way for the makers to get revenue from broken parts and lulling you into thinking you get a clean oven. The typical things to break are elements, fans, door locks and control boards. Your either has a broken lock and isn't passing the self check, or the control board has failed. The temperature is just too harsh. If the oven works, get a can of Easy Off. If you want to use the feature, you will need to get a service

I have a whirlpool oven which is suppose to be self cleaning but cannot figure out how to do it.Model #wfc-150m0eb0

Whirlpool uses the same manual for many of their ranges. The Self-Clean Cycle is marked with an asterix because it is only available on some ranges using that manual. Looking at the support page for the WFC150M0EB0, there is a good close-up picture of the control panel for the range. There is no Self-Clean touch pad button on the left hand side of the control panel. Thus your range doesn't include the feature. The Self-Clean would be in line between the Bake/Broil buttons and Control Lock button.

Whirlpool has the documentation and images for the WFC150M0EB ranges on the product page: https://www.whirlpool.com/kitchen/cooking/ranges/single-oven-freestanding/p.4.8-cu.-ft.-freestanding-counter-depth-electric-range.wfc150m0eb.html . The direct link to the owner's manual is https://www.whirlpool.com/content/dam/global/documents/201406/owners-manual-W10719733-RevA.pdf .

I wish that I had better news for you.

RBS305 replaced thermal cutoff twice and again it won't come on bake or broil

Good Evening!
The self clean feature is causing your thermal fuses to fail or open. This is a safety mechanism that when open (bad) won't allow electricity to pass through any longer. The temperature in your oven exceeds what the components in your appliance can handle. If you want your oven to last it's longest, I would discontinue using that feature. If ever the control board or keypad on your oven by way of the self clean feature, we can help you with that. Fixyourboard.com can help. Send all inquiries to [email protected] . Thank you!

I have a Magic Chef self-cleaning oven. The lock lever broke as I was trying to open the oven door after the self-cleaning cycle was finished; Any suggestions for getting the oven door opened? And if I am...

I had the same prob. Just today I figured it out. My husband tried for a hour the other day and it just took me 30. Min. Lift up the burnner part. You will have to unscrew a cover that sticks up on the front part. Open that section and this is what I done. I beat it with a hammer to ser it it worked, but no. I played with it then I took a screw out on the lever and wool

How do I get the door open after self cleaning and what do I push to self cleaning

Hi, Some ovens are self cleaning During the cleaning process, the oven heats up to a temperature of 900 degrees Fahrenheit. The extreme heat cooks off food and spills inside the oven, leaving ash that can easily be wiped out. The oven door locks while it is cleaning to prevent the door from being opened. Self cleaning ovens are better insulated than regular ovens to keep the extreme heat inside.

Instructions

Read the owner's manual that came with your oven before you perform self cleaning. Although all self cleaning ovens work basically the same way, there may be slight variations for some manufacturers and models.

Take out the oven racks. You need to clean the oven racks by hand, and then put them back in when the oven is done cleaning.

Wipe up any spills and messes inside the oven first, using warm water and a mild soap. Ovens smoke more during cleaning when there is food inside. Wash the inside of the oven door as well. Do not scrub the door gaskets, just gently wipe them off. Damaging the gaskets prevents the oven from sealing.

Lock your oven door manually if your model does not lock it automatically when you clean.

Open a window near the oven for ventilation. There is a certain amount of smoke when you clean the oven. The dirtier the oven is, the more smoke is created.

Turn the control on your oven to "clean" and set the timer for 2 to 5 hours depending on how dirty your oven is, and what the manufacturer recommends.

Wait for the cleaning to finish and the oven to cool before opening door. When oven is fully cooled wipe up any ash inside. If your oven is not completely clean, next time set the timer for longer. If your oven is spotless you might want to see if you can get away with a shorter cleaning time.

Tips & Warnings

Because self cleaning ovens are better insulated, they are more energy efficient when used for cooking. However, if you run the self cleaning feature on your oven more than once a month, you offset the savings you realized. With light to moderate use your oven should be able to be cleaned every one to three months.


Save on the electricity used with a self cleaning oven by cleaning the oven right after use at a high temperature. For example, if you set your oven to clean after making French fries at 450 degrees, it takes less energy to get the oven up to the required 900 degrees.


If you have pet birds, take them out of the house before cleaning your oven. Over heated cooking surfaces, oils and fats, can create fumes that are harmful for a bird's delicate respiratory system.

Hope it helped.

Need to activater self-clean

Every self-cleaning oven is different. It's best to consult the owner's manual for the correct procedure for your oven. But often the steps are:

  1. Set the Start time for the time you want the cleaning to begin.
  2. Set the Stop time to a time 2-3 hours after the start time.
  3. Close and latch the oven door.
  4. Set the selector switch and/or thermostat to "Clean."

Self-Clean gets too hot on JTP56 double-oven

Your husband is correct, kind of. You should not try self clean again until you get the oven repaired. You have a temp sensor going out. I doubt that the oven actually got too hot, most likely the resistor in the sensor is failing as it heats up and giving a false temp reading.Since the lower oven was operating at the time, it is probably the sensor in the lower oven. Don't use it for baking until you get it repaired. It will go out completely and shut down both ovens. You should be able to get a new sensor for around $30 and they are not hard to replace.

The oven won't set your house on fire during clean mode if the cabinets were built with the correct air space and dimensions, but they do get very hot, about 800 degrees F. Most ovens give no trouble during the clean cycle, but if there is any weak components in the electronics system it will show up then. It will give you less trouble over time if you don't use the self clean mode and just manually clean it.
