Adjusting Oven Self-Clean Time Length

Core Issue:

  • Cannot change self clean time from 4 hours to 3 hours.
  • Use and care manual instructions to enter shorter self clean not working.
  • Unable to set a 2.5 hour self clean.
  • How to set, adjust the self clean time.


Self clean time adjustment varies by product.

  • The Dual Fuel Use & Care Guide explains the difference between setting a 4 hour and 3 hour self clean cycle.
  • L Series Use & Care Manuals stated the self clean time is adjustable from 2.5 - 4 hours and that is possible prior to serial # 16,000,000. Starting with serial # 16,000,000 the adjustment is only 3 - 4 hours.
  • Self clean for the E Series Wall Oven can be adjusted between 3 and 4 hours.
  • The M Series Wall Oven only has a 4 hour self clean and the time can not be adjusted.

If the instructions in the manual supplied with a Dual Fuel Range do not work, use the following:

  1. Turn oven selector knob bezel to CLEAN.
  2. Touch COOK TIME and hold the down arrow until 3:00 is displayed.
  3. Touch STOP TIME and hold the down arrow until 3:00 is displayed. The oven will automatically be set to self-clean for 3 hours. The oven will self-clean for 2 hours and cool down for 1 hour.
  4. Touch ENTER twice to begin clean cycle.
  5. To stop the clean cycle, turn bezel to the OFF position. The door will remain locked until the oven reaches a safe temperature.
