SOURCE: Electrolux Icon Oven won't self clean - "Remove Racks" displayed

I was getting the remove rack error until I finally figured out what it wanted me to remove. When you say you removed the rack supports, do you mean just the sliding parts or the whole side metal rack support? At first I thought they were bolted in, but I read somewhere that they come out, too. Upon further investigation, I found the rack supports just slide into the side walls at 4 points. I had to use a little force to pull them out, but they came out and my oven is self-cleaning as I write this. I just thought I would share in case you or others haven't figured it out yet. Now I will just have to see how hard it is to get them back in...

SOURCE: I am trying to clean

Hello Cynthia,

Welcome to FixYa.

Is this the first time the un it has been set for self-clean ? Or is it the first time you have set it for self clean ?

The reason I ask is based on your post "The racks are removed. When I try to start the self cleaning feature - a message flashes in red to remove oven racks " I really don't think anything is wrong with your oven.

This is simply a reminder to remove your racks before the oven reaches the temperature ( usually above 550 ) which the door cannot be opened even by canceling the clean cycle until it cools down below 550...a safety measure.

If you allow the unit to proceed through the self clean the message will go away after a while and the cycle will continue on it's merry way.

Hope that answers your question or quells your concern. Those darn self clean ovens get so hot they will make your nice racks look like barbecue grills if left in during the cleaning, it is definitely better to be sure now than sorry later though, glad you asked.

Thank you for choosing FixYa. Let me know if you need any further assistance and good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Hi,
I just did the self clean function today. They need you to remove the rack supports from each side of the oven cavity. Simply pull up on them to remove. When I did this the message was not displayed and the slef clean function started. Hope that helps.

How do i turn on the self cleaning device.


make sure the oven door closes fully, nothing preventing it from closing. Some brands want you to remove the racks from the inside of the oven before it will activate the cleaning cycle. once door is completely closed, select the self clean cycle and press start. if you have a lock that you manually have to lock (older style of ovens), you will have to lock it before it will enter into the self cleaning mode. most of the time, if there is an issue before you try to enter the cleaning mode, it should tell you on the display,...i.e...remove racks, lock door, etc. good luck. look for me on 6ya if you need more detailed help.

Electrolux dual fuel range 316471210 self clean remove racks message displayed and cannot proceed


Hi friend, thank you for your inquiry!
I understand that you are receiving a "remove racks" message on your Electrolux range. The oven racks and supports must be removed before the self-clean will initiate or the control will not allow the self-clean to turn on. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

Electrolux Icon range won't self clean - "Remove Racks" displayed


Good Morning Friend,

I understand you are unable to self-clean your Electrolux Icon range, model# E30SO75ESS, due to it stating "Remove Racks", when you already have. Please follow these instructions for cleaning your oven:

1. Remove the turntable from the oven before the Refresh Cycle. No food should be in the oven.
2. The Refresh Cycle is 30 minutes.
3. During the Refresh Cycle some smoke and odor may occur. Open a window or use the ventilation fan in the room.

If this does not help, I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging your appliance or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and try the "Refresh cycle". I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-
