Elitech 1300W convection oven: How to set it for self cleaning
My instruction manual neglects to even mention the great self cleaning function for my Elitech 1300W convection oven. I can't find any helpfull information on line for my self. I would like to know how to set it to the self cleaning mode. I have seen it advertised and shown on tv bidding but it was a different model to the one I have just bought. Can any body help to confirm the instructions to me for self cleaning function for Elitech 1300w convection oven, which I now have. Thank you.

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.

Many ranges now have automatic conversion when you use convection feature instead of standard bake, but as a general rule, if your standard baking time in the recipe is over 30 minutes, you can lower the convection setting by 25 degrees F and reduce the time by 25% to get the same results as standard baking settings. Please don't rate this if you don't feel it is a Fix-Ya for you, as other ratings lower my score. Thanks.
