It depends on how dirty it is. But usually 3-4 hours should do. After its done just wipe the leftover burnt pieces out.

Our new home has a GE XL44 gas stove the top works fine but when I use the oven it smokes and sets off the smoke alarms.The stove is over 3 years old Any ideas before I have to call the repairman in?


A gas stove shouldn't smoke. Is is clean? There is some grease that has eluded your cleaning efforts of interior surface?

Here are some tips that may help you resolve this problem:

Check the broiler flame. If the broiler flame is not adjusted properly, you could be creating soot from the burner flame.

Position the items that your are broiling lower so that they do not splatter grease up onto the broiler baffle.

Use a broiler pan that will drain grease and drippings down below the top surface.

Broiling many items will naturally produce some smoke. If you have the oven door closed when broiling then the only place that the smoke can go is up and out of the oven vent. If you partially open the oven door, some of the smoke will come out of the door opening.

You may have residue on the top walls of the inner oven cavity. Do you have self-clean feature on your range to clean the oven? Follow all of the procedures in your owner's manual to properly clean the oven using the self-clean cycle. This may clear out any undetected residue that could be causing excessive smoke during broiling.

The self clean feature stops part way thro the cycle and knocks out the oven entirely. The gas stove top still works


Kitchen aid (now Whirlpool) has actually produced a defective stove here. Your problem is the thermostat in the rear of the unit. You can replace it yourself if you are handy, but that will not fix the problem that is built in to this very poor quality stove. If you ever try to use the self cleaning feature, it is most likely you will overheat the unit, and knock it out again and again.I wrote to Kitchen aid and received a very rude response from their "customer dis-service dept"...I told them theyir stove was defective and they wanted to sell me a NEW part for a high price, not even saying "sorry"...what a bad company! I urge all to stay away from Whirlpool products...they are junk!

Self-cleaning feature


Check your owner's manual, but most self-cleaning ovens should not be cleaned with chemicals. The finish can be permanently damaged. You might try running the oven through the self-cleaning cycle more than once. It will take some time. Make sure the room is ventilated properly since the cleaning cycle produces a lot of heat.

GE XL44 oven does not heat


12 years old? If it is a gas rnge yo need to get a gas technician out to fix it. I would probably say it s time for a new one. Hers is a couple of things to think of when getting a new stove. 1) Everyone wants a self clean. But 90% never self clean. can save up to $200 w/o that option. 2) 80% off people buy a stovebased on looks. A stove may not be pretty but work just as good as one that is.

Stove cleaning


The filter in the jenn air can be run through the dishwasher. clean the outside of the oven as best as you can before you start the self clean cycle. NEVER!!! use oven cleaner inside a self cleaning oven. or on the gasket. . You can use a degreaser or oven cleaner on the cooktop on any stainless steel, procelain or chrome surface. Don't get oven cleaner on painted or aluminum surfaces. Rinse off very well.

Self cleaning cycle


Between 3 and 5 hours. Most likely 3 hours unless yours has the adjustable setting for cleaning, then you can clean longer.
