Question and Answers


oven not working after self-cleaning


Thank you for your question.

I can understand wanting to have the oven working.

There is a re-settable thermostat that has tripped because of the high heat during self-clean cycle.

You will need to remove the wall oven from its location and remove the back wall cover to get to the high limit thermostat.

SAFETY NOTICE: Be sure to disconnect power to the appliance before performing any repairs. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks that might be recommended, please contact your local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others.

First remove power to the range.

Then have a support available to put under the oven as you remove it from the wall enclosure.

If you open the oven door there will be screws that hold the oven to the cabinet.

Remove these screws and slide the oven out to the point so you access the back panel.

Once you have the back panel removed, look for a silver round disc with a red button in the center of a black housing.

Push in on the button and to rest.

To prevent from having to do this again you could install some thin washers behind and between the back oven wall and the mounting ears of the thermal sensor to get it away from the back wall of the oven about a thirty second of an inch, just so it is not touching.

If you do not do that it will do it again when you self clean the oven.

If you need more help with this repair please reply and I will be happy to help you.
