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.

    I try to start oven clean get message that says door

  • Anonymous Mar 25, 2014

    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?

    Sorry, it deleted part of my solution!! Hit the clean button, then hit the "more +" button, will light up "cl n", if you hit more a second time, it will lock on the longest cleaning session...which is four hours! Our is cleaning as I type! Good Luck!!!!

How do I cancel a delayed start when trying to use self clean on Kenmore oven 807189701 Rev B

Unplug the power and cancel it. Never Ever use the self clean feature. We see damage here every couple of weeks. The worst was a burned control board on an oven that all parts were obsolete, so the self clean cost a thousand bucks!

Self-cleaning ovens bring the heat so you don't have to spend hours scrubbing. Traditional self-cleaning cycles heat the oven between 800°F and 900°F, helping turn soil and spills to a powdery ash you can then wipe away. They utilize only heat-no chemicals-and are built to withstand high temperatures. (Says Maytag who love selling elements, door locks and other parts),

No heat on convection or self clean

If you have been using the self clean feature, you have probably burned out or damaged the connections to the fan and the convection fan element or thermistor. NEVER EVER use the self clean feature.

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 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.

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."
