How To Cancel Self-Cleaning Oven GE

If your oven is giving you a hard time and you’re considering cancelling the self-cleaning cycle, there are a few things you should know. 

First, self-cleaning ovens have a lock that engages when the cycle is turned on. This is to prevent anyone from opening the door and being injured by the high heat. The lock can only be released once the cycle is complete. 

So, if you cancel the cycle, you’ll have to wait for it to finish before you can use your oven again. 

Second, cancelling a self-cleaning cycle is not as simple as just pressing a button. In fact, it’s quite complicated and if you’re not careful, you could end up doing more harm than good. 

The best way to cancel a self-cleaning cycle is to unplug the oven from the power source. This will disable the lock and allow you to open the door. Once the door is open, you’ll need to use caution as the oven will still be hot. 

Use an oven mitt or towel to protect your hand as you reach in and turn the knob to the “off” position. 

And that’s it! 

Once you’ve turned the knob to the off position, the self-cleaning cycle will be cancelled and you can go about your business. Just be sure to give the oven time to cool down before you attempt to use it again.
