I has come off in a sizable area & the only way to make it passable is to remove the coating from the rest. Does anyone know how to remove the finish?

    My oven door is locked after cleaning and it will not unlock

    If the door will not unlock at the end of the clean cycle then you may have a problem the door lock/motor assembly. You should first remove the power to the oven for a few moments and then reconnect. This may reset the control and allow you to unlock the door. If you suspect that the door lock/motor assembly is at fault then you will need to unlock the door manually. The assembly is normally located between the main top and the oven and can only be accessed by raising the main top. This is very difficult to do because the screws that hold the top in place are inaccessible with the door closed. If the assembly cannot be accessed then you will have to form a wire hook,(coat hanger) and insert it between the door and the latch and manually pull the latch to the open position. Remove power to the oven before attempting this procedure and be careful not to damage the finish.

    When replacing fan oven element lost wires down back of oven

    Best to turn off oven power at circuit breaker. Grab a strong torch and a wire coat hanger. Straighten the coat hanger and make a small hook on one end. Using the torch light guide the coat hanger loop towards some part of the wire and slowly fish it out.

    Hope this helps. Otherwise you will be left with no alternative but to pull oven out (heavy) to access the side cover and remove it. It would be helpful to know the make and model of the oven if you needed more help with getting to the wire itself.

    Stainless steel oven finish peeling off

    It is likely that the factory-installed clear plastic protective covering was not removed before the oven was placed into service.

    Stainless Steel does not peel!

    Ovens and other appliances with Stainless Steel finishes are made from solid sheets of the material. They are almost always sent from the factory with a protective plastic film on the finish.

    Just find an edge of the appliance, and start peeling the protective film off. Pull it off slowly, as to not leave any possible residual glue or plastic on the appliance.

    If the heat from the oven caused some of the plastic film to melt and it does not peel off, I would immediately call the store or dealer from which you purchased the oven and start hollering, as they did NOT properly prepare the item for sale (if it was delivered and installed).

    If you purchased it in the crate/box, and installed it yourself, you must take responsibility for not having fully read the instructions before using the oven.

    In that case, I would peel as much of the plastic off as is possible, and then use some LOW ODOR CLEANING SOLVENT ( or PAINT THINNER) to remove the rest, using ONLY a soft cotton towel to soak it and rub it with. Do NOT use anything abrasive or scratchy, or you will totally ruin the finish! Do NOT use the scrubber side of a sponge, or a Brillo pad, or Choreboy-type pad!

    *** CAUTION!!! *** DANGER! *** The fumes and vapors from the solvent ARE EXPLOSIVE AND FLAMMABLE! DO NOT USE THE STOVE UNTIL THE VAPORS AND FUMES HAVE TOTALLY DISSIPATED!!! Open the doors or windows to the room for fresh air when you are using the solvent, and READ THE INSTRUCTIONS thoroughly!

    All is not lost yet, but getting melted plastic off the stove will take some time and a very gentle touch. Be patient, and good luck.

    I opened the door before the self cleaning cycle was finished? It was blowing and I thought my husband left it on when he left. I came home and walked past it and felt the air, so I pushed oven off and...

    You have most likely caused one or more fuse relays to blow.
    The self-clean operation can not be interrupted before the cycle is complete without causing issues.
    There is the main fuse inside the control panel and 2 fuse relays on rear of the oven.
    In order to access these fuses you must open the door,then remove the mounting screws to remove the oven from its cabinet..
    Use a wire coat hanger bent into a "U" shape on one end.
    The door latch is in the center of the door on the top oven.
    Slide the bent wire coat hanger between the door and the oven opening.
    The "U" of the coat hanger will be right center of the door latch.
    Slowly pull the "U" to the left until it catches the latch.
    Then pull steady and forcefully to pull the latch mechanism to the left while putting pressure on the door to open it.
    Once the door is open you can begin to access the parts for diagnosis and repair.

    The inside of my self cleaning smooth top range

    Using any kind of cleaning solution can cause the self-clean catalytic coating to be damaged. The glass itself isn't sensitive but don't apply anything like oven cleaner or other caustic cleaner to any of the other surfaces unless your owner's guide specifically permits it. On the glass, I have on occasion used a new single-edge razor blade to remove any heavy, baked on splatters and then conventonal glass cleaner to finish.

    Melted aluminum foil on oven floor

    Hi there,

    I'm not up on my science,'s like welding, or more like soldering, chances are it's a high temp metallic enamel paint, and the two fused creating a mechanical bond. Your stove is cooked. You may be able to scuff the bottom and repaint it with a new coat of high temp enamel.
    Just remove the racks, undo the clips that retain the heating element,(so you can lift it some, DO NOT try to remove it) tape off the bottom to create nice clean edges, using a piece of 80 grit sandpaper scuff the paint really good, lay down a coat of primer if the directions call for it, and follow the directions on the can. Don't worry about the clips, close the door and turn the stove on to the temperature specified on the can, and leave it on for the time stated. It will bake to a smooth glossy finish.
    Most of the products I've used go up to 1000 degrees, and bake at 400 for 4 hours.

    Good Luck!!
