7/16/2014 This date is an estimate
1) We were baking cookies in the double oven.
2) The oven had shown a couple of errors that am. They resolved by turning on and off the breakers
3) The top and bottom ovens were both set to 325. The top oven took a long time to come to temp. The bottom oven took a very short time.
4) I placed cookies in both ovens.
5) My husband smelled smoke and opened the bottom oven where there were flames shooting out.
6) We turned off the oven and I shut off the breaker.
7) The oven locked and would not allow us to open it to put the fire out. Meanwhile smoke is poring
8) I called the fire department who tried to get the oven open. The flames were going for a long period of time inside the oven.
9)When we turned the breakers back on, the oven showed a "self clean mode" even though the oven was off.
10) The fire department monitored around the space to ensure that the fire did not spread.
11) It took several hours for the unit to return to room temperature.

Comment from BSH HOME APPLIANCES CORPORATION 2/13/2019
A service visit was completed and the technician found the oven to be functioning properly. In the event an excessive temperature is detected within the oven, the door will lock automatically. The fire was contained within the oven, preventing the risk of a safety hazard. BSH was unable to obtain further information regarding the incident.
