  1. Buy an empty spray bottle and some baking soda.
    You'll find that baking soda is cheap -- especially if you buy in bulk.
  2. Using a funnel, place 3 heaping teaspoons of baking soda into the spray bottle.
    If the baking soda clogs the funnel, unclog it with water.
  3. Wash the baking soda into the spray bottle by running water into the funnel.
    Fill the bottle with water. After the bottle fills, you'll notice undissolved baking soda that has settled at the bottom of the bottle.
  4. Shake the spray bottle so that all the baking soda dissolves in the water.
    Unless all the baking soda is fully dissolved, some of it gets left behind in the bottom of the bottle as a residue.
  5. When the oven is cold, spray the baking soda and water solution on to the black stuff. Do this one or more times a day.
    It is important to work on a cold oven for two reasons:
    • Safety. You can't burn your hands if the oven is cold.
    • Containment. You'll get baking soda all over the house if you start with a hot oven. I know. I've done it.
      Starting with a cold oven solves the problem.
  6. Use your oven as you normally would. Keep spraying wet baking soda on to the top and sides of the interior of the oven between meals.
    Wet baking soda will break up the carbon sticking to the sides of the oven. Keep spraying baking soda on to the black stuff between meals until it is all gone.
    Don't worry about getting baking soda in your food. Baking soda is one of the prime ingredients of many recipes such as corn bread. It is safe to add it to your food should you do so inadvertently.
    Using this technique, the black carbon that was stuck to the sides of your oven will flow to the floor of your oven and settle there as a black carbon powder that can be wiped away.
    Your oven will look like a mess while this is in process. Choose a good time to do this.
  7. At your convenience, when the oven is cold, wipe your oven with a damp cloth.
    Eventually, you will have to wipe down your whole oven with a damp cloth. The black carbon and baking soda will will settle together on the bottom of your oven. Both are easily removed with a damp cloth.
    In theory, you will have to apply the spray bottle many times but you should only have to wipe down your oven once. Try not to wipe down the oven prematurely as this removes the active ingredient that makes the whole thing work -- the baking soda.
    Important! Let the baking soda accumulate so that it can do its job.
  8. Repeat, repeat, repeat until all the black carbon is gone.

How to CLEAN a Frigidaire Self-Cleaning Oven
Step 1Use a plastic spoon to scrape away any extra spillovers or burnt-on food from inside the oven. Remove as much of this as you can before running the self-cleaning cycle, because any spillovers left in the oven during the cleaning cycle may cause a lot of smoke.
  • Step 2Wipe off the inside of the oven with a rag dipped in soapy water. Be careful not to get any cleaning supplies on the oven door gasket or to disrupt the position of the gasket at all; having a good seal is critical to the success of the oven's self-cleaning cycle.
  • Step 3Clean any soil away from the oven frame and its door liner with a rag dipped in soapy water. Any soil left on these parts of the oven may become burned on during the self-cleaning cycle.
  • Step 4Pull the broiler pan and grid, any utensils, and any tin foil that may have been left in the oven out of it. They can't withstand the extreme temperatures the self-cleaning oven will reach. It's okay to leave the oven racks in the oven.
  • Step 5Make sure the oven door is completely closed.
  • Step 6Press the "CLEAN" button on the control pad. Use the up and down arrows to select the desired cleaning time; use 2 hours for a lightly soiled oven and 3 or 4 hours for a dirtier oven. The oven will lock itself and begin the cleaning cycle.
  • Step 7Wait for the cycle to end and the oven to cool; it will then unlock itself automatically. Don't try to open the oven door before it has unlocked itself.

    Clean oven on kenmore range


    LOCK OVEN DOOR AND TURN SELECTOR TO CLEAN. APPROX THREE HOURS LATER OVEN IS CLEAN. CLEAN UP ASHY RESIDUE.

    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.

    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

    How to use self cleaning oven


    • When using the self-cleaning feature on your oven, the temperature within the oven rises to an extremely high temperature, usually around1000 degrees. The oven will remain at this temperature for a set periodof time, often from 1 to 3 hours.

    • Self-cleaning ovens differ from traditional ovens in that they require a timer to control the amount oftime that the self-cleaning feature operates. They also require extrathermostatic controls to control the extremely high temperatures.

    • While the mechanisms inside aself-cleaning oven are quite complex, the concept behind aself-cleaning oven is fairly straight forward. The extremely hightemperatures incinerate dirt and debris from your oven, thus cleaningit for future use.

    • Safety is very important when using yourself-cleaning feature. You must ensure that the oven door is completelyclosed while the self-cleaning cycle is running. 1000 degreetemperatures are obviously extremely dangerous. Self-cleaning ovenswill come equipped with a secure oven door latch for this reason.

    • The crucial door locking system isinitially engaged to signal that you are ready to use the self-cleaningfeature. When the oven reaches a certain temperature, the door locksystem will ensure that the oven door cannot be opened until the cycleis complete and the temperature has returned to a manageable level.The result is a clean oven without the use of harsh oven cleaners orabrasives.

    Cleaning my self-clean oven


    Turn the oven to "clean" and lock the door if the oven has a manual door lock. The oven may have an automatic timer for the clean setting. If it doesn't then you'll have to turn it off yourself in three or four hours. Don't be surprised if the oven puts out a very foul smell while it's cleaning itself as that's normal for an oven that hasn't been cleaned in so long. After it's done, wait for the oven to cool and then wipe out the ash from the inside of the oven.

    Self cleaning MAytag Gemini GAS oven


    A wonderful feature is that the ovens self-clean with the press of a few buttons. Only one oven can be programmed to self-clean at a time. Remove the oven racks. Turn off the oven light and close the door. Press the "Clean" button and then press "Auto Set" to automatically clean the oven for 3 hours. Press the "Auto Set" pad again to set the oven for a 4-hour clean cycle, or press the button one more time for a 2-hour cleaning. The oven locks when in cleaning mode. When the oven is finished cleaning, the word "Cleaned" will be displayed on the control panel, and the oven will remain locked until the oven has cooled, which takes about an hour. To cancel the self-clean cycle, just press the "Cancel" button. Simple!

    Self cleaning


    You can go to the Maytag web site and download the manual.  www.maytag.com, or go to http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/8113p293.pdf
    and download the manual CAUTION 
    • It is normal for parts of the ovens to become hot during a self-clean cycle. 
    • To prevent damage to oven doors, do not attempt to open the doors when LOCK is displayed. 
    • Avoid touching doors, windows or oven vent area during 
    a clean cycle. 
    Do not use commercial oven cleaners on the oven finish or around any part of the ovens.  They will damage the finish or parts. 
    Do not leave baking/pizza stone in the oven during self-clean. 

    The self-clean cycle uses above-normal cooking temperatures 
    to automatically clean the oven interior. 
    The oven should be cleaned regularly by wiping up spillovers 
    to prevent excessive smoke and flare-ups.  Do not allow a 
    heavy build-up of soil to accumulate in the oven. 
    During the cleaning process, the kitchen should be well 
    ventilated to get rid of normal odors associated with cleaning. 

    Before Self-Cleaning 
    1. Turn off the oven light before cleaning as the light may burn out during the clean cycle. 
    2. Remove broiler pan, all pans, and oven racks from the oven.  The oven racks will discolor and may not slide easily after a self-clean cycle if they are not removed. 
    3. Clean oven frame, door frame (area outside of gasket, and around the opening in the door gasket) with a nonabrasive 
    cleaner such as Bon Ami* or detergent and water.  The self-cleaning process does not clean these areas.  They should be cleaned to prevent soil from baking on during the clean 
    cycle.  (The gasket is the seal around the oven door and window.) 
    4. To prevent damage, do not clean or rub the gasket around the oven door.  The gasket is designed to seal in heat during the clean cycle. 
    5. Wipe up excess grease or spillovers from the oven bottom. This prevents excessive smoking, flare-ups or flaming during the clean cycle. 
    6. Wipe up sugary and acidic spillovers such as sweet potatoes, tomato, or milk-based sauces. Porcelain enamel is acid-resistant, not acid-proof.  The porcelain finish may discolor if acidic or sugary spills are not wiped up before a self-clean cycle. 

    Important: 
    • Oven temperature must be below 400° F to program a clean cycle. 
    Only one oven can be cleaned at a time. 
    • Both oven doors lock when either oven is being cleaned. 
    To set Self-Clean: 
    1. Close the oven door. 
    2. Press the Clean pad. 
        • CLEAN flashes. 
        • SET and UPPER or LOWER flash in the display. 
    3. Press the Autoset pad. 
        • “MEd” (Medium Soil, 3 hours) is displayed. 
    4. Press the Autoset pad to scroll through the self-cleaning settings. 
         “HVy” (Heavy Soil, 4 hours) 
         “MEd” (Medium soil, 3 hours) 
         “LITE” ( Light Soil, 2 hours) 
    Choosing the soil level of the oven automatically programs the self-cleaning time. 
    5. After four seconds, the oven will start cleaning. 
        • If the door is not closed, beeps will sound and ‘door’ will display.         If the door is not closed within 30 seconds, the self-cleaning       operation will be canceled and the display will return to the time of day. 
        • CLEAN will appear in the display. 
        • LOCK will flash in the display.  Once the door locks, LOCK will
          remain steady. 
        • The cleaning time will start counting down in the display.
