I haven't made many posts here but I had to chime in on this one.

I run a small appliance repair company in Los Angeles and every Thanksgiving we get dozens of "I can't get my turkey out of the oven" calls.

Like some of the posts above, I would stress not using your self-clean feature, or first learning how to use your oven, any time close to a major holiday. The parts needed to fix most self-clean repairs are expensive, non-universal, and therefore rarely stocked.

We get so many calls demanding we simply come over and get the door open that we have a handful of technicians that work on Turkey Day doing just that. Half of the customers will order the parts and fix their ovens but many simply pay us to get their food out and spend the weekend shopping for a new oven.

Be safe, be careful, be smart.
