Does the bake or broiler work?

Can you tell me if the oven is Gas or Electric?

And the complete model number as shown on the sticker in the oven door jam or the door jam of the bottom storage drawer.
Waiting your response!

Customer: replied 5 years ago.

 

 

The oven does everything except clean. I had this unit less than a year and never use the self cleaning. Decided to use it today and found out does not turn on.

Expert:  I.can replied 5 years ago.
Hiya,Customerbr />
If the oven does not clean but the bake and broil cycles operate properly

More than likely on of these thee components are not working properly.
1.Electronic range control (ERC) is defective
2.Door latch mechanism
3. Smoke eliminator

You have a one year warranty so do not try to repair it your self or you will void the warranty
.

Did you completely read the user manual as to how exactly to operate the self clean faetures?

The repair manual tells us this:

Check to ensure the controls are set properly. If the controls are properly set and the oven will not clean, you will need to check the clock/timer. There is normally a Fault code that will appear when the electronic range control (ERC) is defective. Also check the oven selector, door latch mechanism, and smoke eliminator for proper operation.
