Resolved Question:

I have a new Sears Kenmore under the counter oven.
Its your cheapest and simplest model.

I have set it on self clean, and I mistakenly pushed the 4 hour clean.
the over is already clean after one hour, and the front of it is getting VERY HOT.

I have pushed the STOP button, but can't get it to turn off.


If I use the circuit breaker, will I damage the overn?

The fan will continue to run and the door won't unlock until the oven cools off. Are either of the elements on? What is your model number?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
The elements are off; the fan turned off, the door is open. All is OK.

OK, you can adjust the self-clean time to a shorter amount. It's explained in your manual.
