Self Clean Cycle Not Working - Combination Wall Oven

 

Possible Solutions

Is the Control Lock On?

To unlock:

  • Press and hold START (on single oven) or the lower START (on double ovens) for 3 seconds to unlock 
  • No keypads will function with the controls locked.

Refer to your Owner's Manual for more information on setting Self-Clean or Control Lock.

Has a household circuit breaker tripped or fuse blown?

Check to make sure a household fuse has not blown or that a circuit breaker has tripped. Reset the circuit breaker or replace the fuse if necessary. If the problem continues, contact a licensed electrician.

If not resolved, please note the following:

  • Do not continue to attempt to operate the wall oven.
  • Disconnect the power cord and/or turn off the circuit breaker that controls the appliance.

Did you set the oven controls for a Self-Clean cycle or a Delay Start Self-Clean? 

To set a Self-Clean cycle:

  • Close the oven door, then press CLEAN MODES.
  • For double ovens only:  Press the "1" or "2" number keypad to select the desired oven to clean.
  • Press the number "1" keypad for Precise Clean.
  • Press START.
  • To set a Delay Start Self-Clean cycle:

  • Close the oven door, and then press START TIME.
  • For double ovens only:  Press the "1" or "2" number keypad to select the desired oven to clean.
  • Press the number keypads to enter the desired amount of time by which you want to delay the start.
  • Press CLEAN MODES.
  • Press the number "1" keypad for Precise Clean.
  • Press START.

Refer to your Owner's Manual for more information on setting a Self-Clean cycle.

Is the oven door open?

Make sure the oven door is closed all the way.

Is the oven door latching?

Unlike other functions, self-clean will only work when the door is closed and properly latched. Close the door and listen for the door to latch when starting the self-clean cycle.
