    After running the cleaning cycle, there are carmel colored heat stains on the outside enamel panel above the vents. NOTHING takes them off.

    Self cleaning Kenmore, after self clean cycle leaves a smoke stain on the control panel, how do I remove without using an abraisive cleanser, I have had the range 1 month.

    The front of the range is repeatedly stained from fumes venting out of the top right of the oven. Use of a Chlorox bleach product reduces the stain temporarily, but is not satisfactory. My wife is about to buy a new range to replace a perfectly functional applicance.

I just cleaned ours yellow stain using a metal/chrome cleaner, a "magic eraser", and a lot of elbow grease. It still has a yellowish tint but the cleaning made a BIG difference. I hope it works for you!

Try a mild abrasive cleanser like Bon Ami or Soft Scrub and wipe clean.

How do I get the door open after self cleaning and what do I push to self cleaning


Hi, Some ovens are self cleaning During the cleaning process, the oven heats up to a temperature of 900 degrees Fahrenheit. The extreme heat cooks off food and spills inside the oven, leaving ash that can easily be wiped out. The oven door locks while it is cleaning to prevent the door from being opened. Self cleaning ovens are better insulated than regular ovens to keep the extreme heat inside.

Instructions

Read the owner's manual that came with your oven before you perform self cleaning. Although all self cleaning ovens work basically the same way, there may be slight variations for some manufacturers and models.

Take out the oven racks. You need to clean the oven racks by hand, and then put them back in when the oven is done cleaning.

Wipe up any spills and messes inside the oven first, using warm water and a mild soap. Ovens smoke more during cleaning when there is food inside. Wash the inside of the oven door as well. Do not scrub the door gaskets, just gently wipe them off. Damaging the gaskets prevents the oven from sealing.

Lock your oven door manually if your model does not lock it automatically when you clean.

Open a window near the oven for ventilation. There is a certain amount of smoke when you clean the oven. The dirtier the oven is, the more smoke is created.

Turn the control on your oven to "clean" and set the timer for 2 to 5 hours depending on how dirty your oven is, and what the manufacturer recommends.

Wait for the cleaning to finish and the oven to cool before opening door. When oven is fully cooled wipe up any ash inside. If your oven is not completely clean, next time set the timer for longer. If your oven is spotless you might want to see if you can get away with a shorter cleaning time.

Tips & Warnings

Because self cleaning ovens are better insulated, they are more energy efficient when used for cooking. However, if you run the self cleaning feature on your oven more than once a month, you offset the savings you realized. With light to moderate use your oven should be able to be cleaned every one to three months.


Save on the electricity used with a self cleaning oven by cleaning the oven right after use at a high temperature. For example, if you set your oven to clean after making French fries at 450 degrees, it takes less energy to get the oven up to the required 900 degrees.


If you have pet birds, take them out of the house before cleaning your oven. Over heated cooking surfaces, oils and fats, can create fumes that are harmful for a bird's delicate respiratory system.

Hope it helped.

There is always a yellowish staining on the top part of the oven door, door handle and vents after self cleaning. I've tried bleach, sos, Mr. Clean Magic pads and it barely removes it. What do you...


the yellowish "staining" is a result of a bad seal. Since it is heat changing the color of the surface, you would probably have to do some damage to remove the discoloration, either like a soft abrasive scrub or other, bleach will not fix that.
Sounds like the cleaning cycle could be too long or otherwise too hot for too long? Perhaps a wipe down with a damp cloth to the interior of the oven prior to a self clean to remove any loose material may help.. Also if there are any other vents for this oven (say under one of the burners of the stove top) make sure they are kept free and clear of any blockage of air flow..
Best regards

I have alot of smoke when i use the self cleaning feature


Self cleaning works by 'burning' all of the material it is cleaning.  If you have excessive grease other material in the oven, it will cause the smoking.  Either do the cycle more frequently or remove as much of the goo as possible with a cloth before beginning.  If you have a ventilator to the outside, turn it on and close the door to the kitchen to contain the odor.

Upper oven locked and control panel is not working


First off this oven sucks. Now to fix the problem replace the Fuse assembly with #4451042 an $11.00 part. SHUT OFF THE POWER AT THE BRAKER PANEL FIRST. Then open the lower oven door and remove the two small screws that hold the side trim pieces, slide them up a bit to remove. At the top of the track remove two more small screws that hold the display panel in-place and lift the cover up and away from the oven. The fuse is inside of a clear plastic tube with a female spade connector at each end of it. replace the failed part and put things back the way that they came off. Next time don't by a Whirlpool.
