Question about GE JTP86 Electric Double Oven

1 Answer

Cleaning better than self-cleaning

I've read where one isn't supposed to use an oven cleaner product like "Easy Off" because of the special surfaces on the inside of a self-cleaning oven. Is this correct, and if so, can such a product be used only on the glass window of the door?

Is there a better cleaning method than simply using the self-cleaning cycle?

Thanks,

R. Aldridge

What you have read is correct, the catalytic lining can be damaged by corrosive sprays. It should be safe to use 'Easy Off ' on glass though.

The standard Auto clean cycle is the best method of cleaning that i know of.

I don't know how to clean the oven


Hello OTCHENASH...

Make & Model would be really really really helpful here!!!

if It's a NEW STYLE self cleaning oven... read the new manual.
or
if It's a OLD STYLE self cleaning oven... read the old manual.

It makes a HUGE DIFFERENCE...

Any advice here could fly right in the face of what you
owners manual dictates

You TYPICALLY remove the shelves.. and prep the interior with a warm sponge... to pick of loose particles.

Sets the controls for clean... return WELL after cool down.
Make sure the interior surface is cool to the touch... and
ONLY THEN :
Clean up the ash with a damp sponge!

Clean and return the shelves... and you are good for your next mess.

If it is not SELF CLEANING... get out the HAZ-MAT suits..

Again... remove shelves food, etc.
Open windows... Read the CAUTIONS on the label...
Follow those directions VERY CLOSELY... Else...

Get dressed and go out and by a new oven.

Happy hunting!

Can you manually clean a self cleaning oven?


Yes you can use any of the available oven cleaning products if you wish to do it the hard way. I use Easy Off brand cleaner due to the fumes from the self cleaning when my baby grand daughter is here, which just about all the time..

How to clean oven model JSP46D P1BB


That model is self cleaning . So you have to remove the oven racks and press the button marked self clean. The self cleaning cycle will last anywhere from 2-4 hours . once the oven unlocks after the cycle is over you have to wipe the surface with a clean clothe. It is very important to never use regular oven cleaners (i.e. Easy Off ) in a self cleaning model. If you need to spot clean something without using the Self cleaning mode you can make a paste of baking soda and water and let it sit for an hour before wiping.

As far as the top is concern, use a mild soap and a dish cloth on an everyday basis. There is products specifically designed to clean the ceran tops (good brands are "Cerama Bryte" and "CookTop", they are available at any Wal Mart) you should use one of those cream cleaner at least once a week. If something is really baked on , you can use a razor blade ( same ones ones used to removed paint off windows) or a scotch brite pad ( the blue one only.. the yellow one is too abrasive)

I have never used a self cleaning oven.i have already put oven cleaner on the inside and let it stand for awhile is this right? god I don't want to blow up


You DO NOT use a oven cleaner with a self cleaning cycle. Wipe out the oven cleaner as instructed on the can. Oven cleaner is better than self clean cycles anyway. Most self clean cycles eventually cause oven control problems.

Easy off ate all enamel off interior of oven


First off i must say that in your owners manuel it clearly states to not use any cleaning products inside the oven..

Second if the cleaner is now completely cleaned off then when put into the bake cycle it could possibly turn the cleaner into a toxic gas. I would not use the oven i would replace it.

Third having the enamel chip off is not a safety concern. it is merely cosmetic. however refer back to number 2.
