SOURCE: have a maytag super capacity plus oven i tried

Had the same problem. How I fixed it, was by using a very thin, and I mean really thin, flat tip screw driver and a flash light. Unplug the stove. Use the flash light to look at the very top of the oven door. You should see in the air vent slats a silver hook. Use the screw driver to go through the vent slats and push the lock open. Now, you should be able to open your door. But we arent done yet. With the door open, plug the stove back in. Close the door and wait for the F9 to flash. Now open your door, and on the right side you should see a tiny peg sticking out on the open oven. Its for the light to come on when the oven door is open and also to let the oven know the door is ajar. Push it in and wait. The door latch circuit should reset like normal, and you will see the latch move back into its normal open position. Which resets the F9 error and allows you once again to use your oven like normal.

After cleaning your oven - do you want to ever do that again ?

Well, to cut oven cleaning down to a few minutes, just mix Sodium Bicarbonate (Bicarb) with a little water to make a thick paste, then spread it evenly on the base of the oven just using rubber gloves - it doesn't need to be too precise.
Put the oven on warm for a few minutes just to dry it out.

That's it !

Leaving it on the base of the oven prevents any dribbles or spills from sticking, and it doesn't leave any odours or harsh chemicals in there.

Next time you clean the oven - just use warm water and you will be amazed how it just lifts off - leaving your oven clean with no other chemicals needed.
Add another batch when you're done and it will continue to lift any areas you thought were impossible to get off.

I have no manuel so how do i start the self cleaning process and will both the top and bottom burners come on?

You didn't give us a model or a manufacturer. So it's impossible to give you a specific answer. If you Google that manufactor and part number you can probably come up with a user manual giving all the instructions you need.

Why is this model smoking so much when you use the oven why is so hard to clean the upper part the element is in the way and it is almost impossible to clean it

smoking ovens is from burnt on grease where people do not use oven bags to prevent grease spatter
get advice on how to remove the element and replace with a new one ( grease free) use a good quality spray on oven cleaner and let stand for the directed time then clean out properly refit the new element
it will be best if you remove the door first as it makes it easier to get in the oven

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!

How do clean behind the glass on Maytag built-in oven.

You should have a 2 piece glass in your oven. What has happened is that the seal that separates the 2 pieces has come apart or is broken thus allowing air and grease in. You can take apart the glass but it will only be temporary for about 2-3 months and will get dirty again. The bad thing about it is that te more you take it apart, the more the band that separates the 2 pieces becomes out of its form, the harder to put it back together. Unless you don't mind it, I would leave it alone or just replace it and be done with it. The question I have is, is the glass cracked or has the door been bent? Normally, the glass lasts for nearly the life of the oven.

How do I clean the inside of the door window of my self-cleaning oven?

umm. there will always be some assemblence of grease on the door glass, if its on the inner most panel and you can scrub it off, then i would reccomned using a razor blade lying flat to scrape it off, however if it has developed within the panel(s) of glass then the only remedy is to dissassmeble the door and glean them that way.. there was some conflict as to the age of your machine in your description, you say "3-hour cycle for the first use late last spring, if I remember correctly--whatever the directions said to do for the first time, a 4-hour cycle after Thanksgiving last fall and a 3-hour cycle for the second cleaning a couple of days ago since it wasn't very dirty"" so i cant be a mont old??? reason i say is that is the unit you purchased probably come with a pretty kickin warr and the manufacture will want ot make good on your issue if you cant resolve it, betterchance though if only 1 month not 11
