I don't have an instruction booklet. How do I use my self clean feature?

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

My wife has never been able to activate the clean feature.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

When we push clean the clean light flashes, then the lock indicator lights us. the door is at that point locked. After about a minute, both lights go out and the door unlocks.
