Oven self cleaning problem
Running the self cleaning cycle on your oven has the possibility of causing issues to it. As well, there could be an issue with your oven that is preventing your self cleaning cycle from working. These issues can be extremely frustrating to deal with. But don’t worry, our team has all the experience needed to repair any oven issues!
- Door latch switch: If something is wrong with your door latch switch, the oven cleaning cycle will not begin. The door switch allows the oven door to lock, and the cycle will only run if the door is able to lock.
- Door lock motor and switch assembly: as mentioned above, the door switch allows the oven door to lock, and the cleaning cycle will only run if the door is locked. The switch is what activates the door lock motor to keep the oven door locked during the self cleaning cycle. If the door lock motor and switch assembly is faulty, the door will remain locked after the cleaning cycle is over and you will not be able to open the door.
- Temperature control thermostat: this thermostat is what regulates the temperature of the oven. If the temperature control thermostat is faulty, it may not work during the self cleaning process. It is possible for this thermostat to work correctly during backing cycles but not for the cleaning cycle.
- Thermal fuse: the job of the thermal fuse is to shut the power off to the oven when it gets too hot, to avoid overheating. It is possible for the thermal fuse to blow while the self cleaning cycle is running. If this happens, you will have to replace it.
