The general answer is yes, however if there is a lot of build up in the oven the self clean cycle may result in irritating smokey fumes. It's always best to clean the oven before there is a heavy build up, and at a time when you can open a window or two if the fumes start to bother you. If there is a build up on the floor of your oven now, you can try using a plastic spatula to scrape off some of the real heavy stuff before self cleaning. This should be a FixYa for you and your cats. Thanks.

We baked meatballs in the oven for a party and there was spill over onto the floor of the oven. When the oven gets very hot, the grease ignites. I tried to clean the floor first before turning on the self-cleaning, but even then, there was fire in the oven.. What can I do about this?

Hi, check this web page, which is a PDF file of GE oven manuals. It appears that you have to close a latch on the door to start the self cleaning.

When ovens self clean, the temp rises past the highest temp you can set it at. It is burning everything off, to clean the oven remember. Yes, it is safe to leave. The ovens have a safety, which will shut the oven off if the temp gets too high.

How do I use the self cleaning functions - kitchenaid oven


Hi,

Please allow me to help you first with some background of self cleaning functions:

Self-cleaning ovens use an approximately 900 degrees Fahrenheit (482 degrees Celsius) temperature cycle to burn off spills leftover from baking, without the use of any chemicals. A self-cleaning oven is designed with a mechanical interlock (patented in 1982) to keep the oven door locked and closed during and soon after the high-temperature cleaning cycle, which can be approximately three hours. The door stays locked to prevent burn injuries. You can open the oven door after the oven cools to approximately 600 F (315 C).

If baking spills are not wiped up after baking, there may be some smoke during an oven cleaning cycle. It is a good idea to remove any pets from the area when running the oven's self-cleaning cycle. There have been reports of oven-heated Teflon-coated items releasing odorless fumes deadly to birds.
Self-cleaning ovens have the added benefit of more insulation, which helps the energy efficiency for regular baking. This is similar in concept to an increased R-factor for home insulation.

You will also save energy costs by using the self-cleaning cycle right after baking, to make use of the already partially heated oven.

Please check this website mentioned bellow which would give you a detailed method of how to perform it:

Hope this would help you .

God Bless.

My oven flased an F9 error....


The solution to this issue is to finish running the self cleaning feature to this oven, Shutting off the oven or opening the door before the self cleaning feature has completely run will send a F9 error from the safety co0ntrol unit feature built in to the system bios of the control circuit, You will need to close the oven and set the option self cleaning to run now. if your error message prevents you from taking these steps you will need to unplug the oven from the wall socket and let it sit for an hour to reset the screen and then run the self cleaning feature all the way trough, it will shut down on its own when the self cleaning cycle has completed

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.
