Maybe jealousy. I fix jealousy by catching my cat when it does stuff like that and giving it several kisses. For my cat, kissing has worked for years and works every time.

SOURCE: whirlpool self cleaning oven Accubake. 2 yr old


The oven door lock needs approximately 1 hour to cool down before the oven door can be opened after a self cleaning cycle has finished. If the lock does not open after the oven has cooled down, you can try....1) Unplugging the range or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Plug the range back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and try moving the door lock lever or opening the door. 2) Set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for 15 minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever or opening the door.

Most ranges today use 3 different types of door is a solenoid controlled lock ( you hear a loud buzz noise when setting or unlocking the lock and has a arm that you must move to set the lock )...another is a heat sensitive lock ( has a arm that you must move to lock and un-lock, makes no noises and has a spring that slowly moves to lock the door will the oven is heating up )...Some locks are motorized ( no handle to move, the motor locks the door by it's self when you set the range for self clean )... If the motorized and heat sensitive locks fails to open after the self clean cycle, you must access the lock and move it yourself to open the door. On the free standing ranges, most times you must lift the cook top to access the lock mechanism. On built in ovens, the oven must be pulled out to remove the top access panel to get at the lock mechanism. Some build in ovens can have the control console removed to access the lock system. On the heat sensitive style of lock, there are no electrical parts to operate the lock, usually you will need to replace the lock. On the motorized style of lock, you will have to use a ohm/volt meter to test why the motor will not work. On the solenoid style of lock, the solenoid is often mounted on the back of the range and can be accessed by removing the rear panel, some may be mounted at the front, such as in a built in oven. The failure of the solenoid style of lock is normally caused by a bad lock solenoid. In order to get your door open, you must operate the door latch mechanism manually. Unplug or remove power from the range. Take the rear cover off the range. Locate the door latch assembly and operate it manually and open your door. Then check continuity of the solenoid. Some of the latch assemblies have micro switches to supply power also. You may need to check them. You should be able to get the door open and use your range until you can get a tech to repair if you can not repair yourself.

If you've interrupted the clean cycle or have accidentally set the clean cycle with the oven door open, the latch may have engaged and now the door can't be closed because it will hit the latch. There may be a door activated* switch on the front face of the oven. In this case you may need to manually press that door switch with your finger while at the same time canceling the clean cycle to get the latch to retract so the door can close fully again.

Is there any spray out there that will calm my cat down

Are you taking your cat for rides in the car? Why should it be a spray and not a pill or medicine? Do you keep the cat in a carrier while it is riding? Is the cat normally calm? It depends. I think there are tranquilizers that work on cats similarly to how they work on us, but of course the dose is different, and the neurological system of a cat has some big differences. I think they are taken in a pill not a spray, unless you want to tranquilize yourself at the same time. I wondered if the pet is fixed (spayed or neutered) because cats that aren't have more wild-acting tendencies.

How can I avoid catching my neighbours cat?

Bait your trap with something sweet. Wheat bread with peanut butter spread on it is always a sure attractant, oil of anise; sweet corn and grape jelly are also suggested for nuisance animals. The majority of domestic animals are not attracted to this type of bait. If you do catch your neighbour's dog or cat you have several options:

My grandson lost my remote to the 132cm. crosswinds ceiling fan. 0044687. where can i get a new one?

A new remote or new Grandson? For the remote you can try Lowes or Home Depot. They have a small display of handheld remotes for ceiling fans and remotes for overhead lights. I looked up the brand and Crosswinds is carried by Lowes.

I hope my solution is very helpful and that the remote will be reasonable priced. If you had an idea to add a fan to another room you could get the second fan and try its remote on the old fan. That way you would not be spending extra dollars for just a remote.

My mom was constantly losing TV remotes. Have your Grandson look under sofas and recliners as they tend to swallow remotes. If you have a cat, check your shoe closet because cats will place objects in their owners shoes. If you have a dog, it may have swallowed the remote. It might be worth checking.
