Question and Answers


How do I get the self cleaning feature to work on my Kenmore range model 9119342190?


Before running a self clean cycle, follow these steps:

  1. Remove any broiler pans or baking pans that may be in the oven.
  2. Remove all utensils and foil that may be in the oven.
  3. Remove the oven racks. If racks are left in the oven during the cleaning cycle, they will darken, lose their luster and become hard to slide. If you choose to leave the racks in the oven during the clean cycle, then you can polish the sides of the racks with steel wool and apply a small amount of cooking oil on them following the clean cycle. This will allow them to slide properly.
  4. Soil on the oven frame, under the front edge of the cook top, the door liner outside the door gasket and the front edge of the oven cavity (about 1" into the oven) will not be cleaned during the cycle. Clean these areas before starting the clean cycle. Use hot water and a mild abrasive such as Soft Scrub to clean these areas. After cleaning these areas, rinse them thoroughly with water and dry/buff them before starting the clean cycle.
  5. Turn the oven light off before starting the clean cycle.
  6. Wipe up any heavy spillovers in the oven before starting the clean cycle. Large spills on the oven floor can produce excessive smoke during the clean cycle.
  7. Do not rub the door gasket. It is a fiberglass material that can be easily damaged. There should be a 5" to 6" gap in the door gasket at the bottom of the door for circulation. This is normal. If the oven door gasket is worn out, it should be replaced.
To set the self clean cycle, follow these steps:
  1. If your oven door lock handle is hidden, lift the cook top and pull the handle out as far as it will come.
  2. Make sure that the clock is showing the correct time of day and working properly. NOTE: The cleaning cycle will not work properly or shut off properly if the clock is not working.
  3. Turn the OVEN SET KNOB to CLEAN.
  4. Turn the OVEN TEMPERATURE KNOB counterclockwise to CLEAN. Turn this knob all the way until it stops.
  5. Set the DELAY START KNOB on the clock to the present time of day. NOTE: To delay the start of the cleaning cycle, set the time when you want the cycle to begin.
  6. Set the STOP TIME KNOB for the time that you want the clean cycle to end. NOTE: The normal cleaning time is 3 hours.
  7. Slide the door lock handle all the way to the right to lock the oven door. You may need to press on the door slightly to get it locked.
To interrupt a clean cycle, turn the STOP TIME KNOB to the current time of day. Allow sufficient time for cooling. The oven door will unlock only after the oven temperature is below the set point that will allow the oven to be unlocked. Do not force the door lock handle open. Allow the oven to cool down before opening the door.

Make sure to protect pets and birds during the cleaning cycle. Smoke can be irritating to animals.

After the cycle, you may see white ash in the oven that needs to be wiped up.

Refer to the owner's manual for your oven for additional details or more specific directions on your particular model. The owner's manual for this model is not available online. If needed, you can order a hard copy from the Sears PartsDirect website .
