Hi I have a 1990 GE model # jbp24gk2wh stove. Several years ago the timer broke and would not stop ringing. I was advised to disconnect the wiring from the timer at that time. Since I could use manual timers this hasn't been a problem, but now I want to clean the oven and drip pans and wondering if I really need the timer to do this or can I simply set the controls to Clean and latch the front and use a manual timer to time the cleaning cycle? Thanks for your help from one martial guru to another.

I would never, ever use the self clean feature in an oven. Just because it has it the feature doesn't mean the manufacturer designed the appliance to withstand 900+F heat for two to three hours. This is very stressful, to the wiring, switches and electronic control. If you have an incipient problem with often, the stress of the self clean cycle will surely manifest it. We see this a lot with dead controls and stuck doors.
