I inherited an older Amana Gas oven that is self

I inherited an older Amana Gas oven (10+ years old) that is self clean, although I do not know how to use that feature. When you lock the door and put the knob to ''clean'' the light does not light up until you turn the knob back to off, then the light goes on. I waited, but it does not heat up.

I have an older model double oven by Kenmore - probably 15-18 years old. I was baking bread in foil three days ago and the oven set on bake 325 degrees. (I had been cooking a roast in it for several hours...


Hi.

the oven may have locked in consequence of the self cleaning cycle.

After unplugging, allow the oven cooling down for few hours.

If the is still locked, then the high temperature generated in self cleaning cycle may have damaged temp probe, door latch, or electronic control.

Parts must be tested to discover the fault.

Call Kenmore at the number listed on the owners manual.

Regards.

Door lock light blinking ,oven wont work on a older gibson self cleaning oven.


It sounds to me that the door lock switch itself is stuck in the "on" position. If you don't use the self-cleaning feature, I would suggest simply disconnecting the switch. If you DO use the self-cleaning feature, you may want to consider replacing the switch or inspect it to make sure there isn't debris, grease, etc., stuck in it, making it stuck on all the time.

I hope this helps! :) Please let me know if you need any further assistance in this matter and I'll be more than happy to help!

Self Clean cycle on Hotpoint Gas range doesn't work


We see a symptom like this due to a failure in the control board. Although it usually also affects bake mode. Another cause could be a problem with the door lock as it must be engaged (by the controller) to initiate self-clean.

If this doesn't help, you can either post the full model number or email me at [email protected] and we can dig deeper.

I am in the process of cleaning my Whirlpool self cleaning oven and it seems like there should be about 2 hours left on the timer and when I came out to the kitchen the timer was off and the door is still...


most likely the safety latch got stuck from the super heat of the oven while cleaning. try tapping the latch with a screwdriver and hammer, spray a bit of wd-40 on it wont hurt. i believe the self cleaning on ovens is crazy, as the heat damages things, including the finish of the unit.

Old Amana - no manual; can't operate self clean feature


Can you locate the model number on the oven? Also any particular name of the stove? The manufactured year. These should all be available on a stainless steel or aluminum attached plate , probably on the back of the stove or inside the door.
I wouldn't try using the self cleaning feature until we get some advice. it could lock up on you and not UNLOCK. Normally self cleaning takes place at 600 or more degrees .

I'm sure others still have the same stove., I will see what I can find for you.

Self-cleaning gas oven


Door lock motor has probably failed.....Self clean on many
ovens can be a self destruct mode. Door latch motors, sensor
probes and even the electronic controls can be destroyed by
this operation. On many freestanding stoves the lock motor is located in the right rear (looking from the front) with a long rod connected to the lock. remove the motor and unhook the rod from the motor cam. Sometimes bending a coat hangar into a hook and sliding from the right side into the lock you can unlock the door.
