Easy Clean Cycle Fix - pics
« on: April 29, 2006, 10:34:12 PM »
I was poking around with the clean cycle lock today. The fix for my oven was so easy. Just an adjustable wrench and a twist – snapped so easy!  I used a wrench on each side and tightened till snug (up to red line) and twisted. That’s it!!

I fired up the oven on a test run this morning and it seems only the top element is used in the clean cycle. In about 30 minutes my oven was well over 600 degrees.

I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy

My first pizza with clean cycle unlocked. This oven gets hot!!!!! The bottom was very charred but it tasted fine.

Just make sure you know where your children are in the house if you have a fire. 

It is only a matter of time untill a modification like this backfires.  Then watch the lawyers come after Steve and those on this list that supports this modification.

This modification is dangerous.

Randy has some very good points.  I'm not telling anyone to do it, I'm just showing you what I did.

This concept is not a new one... it was mentioned in Jeffrey Steingarten's book "The Man who ate Everything" where he has a whole chapter devoted to making genuine NYC street pizza at home (and where he discusses using his oven's self-clean cycle to try cooking pizza.) I've seen it discussed on other forums as well.

I'm not advocating that anyone circumvent their oven's self-clean safety devices. When I talk about it here, I am merely telling others what I personally have done and not that they should do it.  ;)
