Hi, W/D here.
Ovens just love for you to use the self cleaning feature on them. This gives them all kinds of excuses to lock up, fail components and have other components become "unpredictable". Self cleaning takes the oven to extremely high temperatures to incinerate the baking residue. This also uses a high amount of energy. My best advice is to clean the oven with the spray cleaner whenever possible, and to avoid the self cleaning feature altogether. Use normal precautions with the spray, following the directions on the can. This will do the job just as well, and takes much less time. Just make sure that the product that you use says "safe for self cleaning ovens", and you'll be fine.
Best regards, --W/D--

The fan oven will not self clean any ideas


the best thing to clean an oven or anything of the sort is to use easy-off oven cleaner... Spray on and leave sit for 15 mins wipe off with dry rag (or medium- fine steel wool if needed) then rinse with wet rag, make sure to rinse all the chemicals off before using it... Also this works great on car rims getting brake dust off "spray on wait til it turns purple blueish then spray with hose." NOTICE - In either case if there are any plastic parts do a spot check on a inconspicuous spot first, because it might bleach the plastic "turn it white".......... The picture is the exact kind that i use for both my oven and rims on my car

Is the oven self cleaning and if so how does it work?


if its self cleanin it will say right on it "self cleaning"

self cleaning ovens do exactly that they clean themselves no harsh chemicals (oven cleaner foam) are needed to dissolve the baked on cooking goo that builds up inside ovens , although if one uses a foil liner in bottom then one might never need to self clean it , but some models cant use liners due to convection fans air flow getting in the way ,
self cleaning ovens have the ability to get very hot (500 degrees plus) no one should ever open a oven in cleaning cycle as this hi temp can spontaneously combust to ashes your hair/clothing never the less burn the hand that opened it severely(most lock the door for safety) all that needs done after cycle, is ashes need wiped out with damp towel next day after cleaning cycle is done and oven cooled off completely , im waiting on the day they make one that sweeps its self out into the dust bin ,(not yet )

Self oven cleaner


Hi Debbie, this is AP

I understand you are having trouble getting the self-clean mode on your Electrolux ICON wall oven to start. On this model, E30EW86GSS, you must remove the rack supports in order for the self-clean mode to start. To remove the oven rack support for
a self-clean cycle, pull up the support to disengage them from the brackets. If the rack supports are not removed, the self-clean cycle won't start. If you find that this does not resolve your concern and you following the self-clean instructions precisely I would recommend contact a local authorized technician to inspect your wall oven. I you need assistance locating a technician please visit the manufacture website for additional information. I hope this information helps to some degree - thanks for your question, and please do not hesitate to reconnect if you have additional information regarding your question.
Thanks,

How can I clean the roof of my Stoves 720EF Electric Double Oven


I have been using the Lakeland brush on oven cleaner for ALL of the inside of the oven including the stay clean bits without any problems. With the 720, I just brush on the cleaner and follow the instructions. To answer you question, I don't actually lie upside down, you should be able to reach it fairly easily. You may need a number of attempts to get the worse of! Be careful of the thermostat sensor at the top rear right of the oven. It should be bright and clean but will not take any heavy handed cleaning, especially the thin wire leading to/from it. FYI the fan cover at the rear of the oven is held on by 4 self tapping screw and comes off/ goes back on with any problems.(The rear of the cover by the vents build up with grease). Don't use the cleaner on any aluminuim bits ( which includes the fan) as it harms it.

Hi lost the manual..need to start self cleaning


Hello,

An electric oven is a great oven choice because of the advanced self-cleaning feature often available on certain models. A self-cleaning oven uses high temperatures to clean crusty baking spills and splatters and free its owner from having to use harsh chemicals to clean his oven. The following 4 steps lay out how a self-cleaning oven works.

Step 1 - Setting the Self Cleaning Mode
Depending on the style and brand of oven you own, you start the self-cleaning cycle by setting the oven's operating dial to "Clean," a function that can be as simple as setting a timer knob or pushing one or two buttons.

Step 2 - Cleaning Cycle
Once you have set the self-cleaning cycle, the oven coils-both lower and upper--will begin to heat. These self-cleaning ovens are protected from high oven temperatures damage by heavy insulation installed in their walls and door during the manufacturing process.

Step 3 - Automatic Door Lock
When the oven reaches a pre-determined temperature, the lock on the oven door engages, preventing anyone from opening the door until the oven temperature has cooled.

Step 4 - Removing Residual Ashes
Once the cleaning process is completed, including cooling, you can then remove the residual ash by wiping the bottom oven surface with a damp cloth or sponge.


Hope this helpout

I just used the self cleaning option for the first time and the entire house filled with hazy smoke and a very strong , almost chemical odor - what is wrong?


The self cleaning setting goes to a very high temperature ,it is this high temperature that cleans the oven ,the remains that was left in the oven.during the cleaning cycle would have likely caused the hazy smoke and strong odour . Recomendation : use your vent fan , remove heavy residue from the oven before starting the cleaning cycle.

What type of oven cleaner can be used on the ge profile self cleaning ovens.


No chemical cleaners should be used on self cleaning ovens. Scrape the heavy soil with a plastic spatula and use the self clean feature. Once chemicals are used it will not clean satisfactorily again. Sorry..... Eric

Just put the oven on self clean which started a fire in my oven. I had to use to extinguish fire which caused the powder and/or grease to get in between the glass panels. Can I hire a tech to come out/take...


Yes you can hire a tech or do this job yourself.
Remove the door and place it on a large flat surface.
Remove the screws around the edge of the frame and separate the 2 pieces.
Clean away.
Re-align the 2 halves and replace the screws.

Clean glass range door


Hello. I recommend a product called Cameo. Cameo is a non abrasive cleanser actually designed for the new type enameled sinks recomended by American Standard. AND iit works great on oven door glass. You can get it at Walmart. Very inexpensive and works great on all kinds of surfaces that may be hard to clean but you don't want a harsh cleaner that might damage the surface or scratch. Has a very light to almost none scent. Very good for cleaning the oven both inside and out. Doesn't have the chemical smell left by some cleaners that can be intensified by heat.
