Gold issue
« on: November 26, 2008, 01:44:30 PM »
I accidentally turned on my Gold self-cleaning oven while a ham was in the oven! We had to turn off the circuit breaker to stop the oven...damaged paint, etc. around oven. How can I manually stop the cleaning program? It has been off all night and is completely cooled down.

I can't open the door (still locked) and I can't turn on the light. No display in the LED window at all. Nothing works...however, when the circuit breaker was turned back on, heat started coming through the vent again! Apparently there's power to heat the oven, but nothing else??

model number ?

The Rules:
Rule #1) Don't ever use Self-Clean

Rule #2) If you're thinking about using Self-Clean, see rule #1.


Self-Clean uses nearly 1000F for 3 hours or more.
That can wreak havoc on Electronic Controllers and Connections.

The only thing worse than that is one of my customers actually woke up late and set the turkey on self clean cycle to speed up the cooking process. It was not pretty. I think they are still trying to get pieces of turkey off the kitchen wall.
