Yes it is safe. all the oven does is fire up to a high temperature to burn off the debris.

Electrolux Icon Oven self cleaning won't start- the lock button keeps flashing. Yes, the racks and rack holders are removed.


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that you are having trouble with your Electrolux Icon oven, model# E30SO75ESS, and running the self-clean cycle. I see that the lock button keeps flashing and that you have the racks and rack holders out. I suggest following the steps below to run your self-clean cycle:

    1) Place the rack holders and the racks in your oven.

    2) Reset your appliance, by shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes.

    3) Restore power.

    4) Reset the clock, by pressing the "Clock" button then press the number "2". Enter in the time of day, and then press the "Clock" button again.

    5) Start the self-clean cycle with the racks in your range. This is to make your oven recognize that the racks are in the oven.

    6) Take the racks and rack holders out and start the self-clean cycle again.

    I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your oven status has changed successfully.

    -Best Regards-

I started the self cleaning process with the timer, however, there was a light fire in the oven due to grease. My husband turn the oven (self-cleaning process) off by turning the circuit breaker off. ...


if the door is unlocked then clean all the grease and let go, if the oven is still locked then get a tech down to your house to have it unlocked since its not safe to have it run again with greaase

Hi, is this oven self cleaning or can I use chemical cleaners to get the oven clean, especially around the fan? B x


Hi, W/D here.
Ovens just love for you to use the self cleaning feature on them. This gives them all kinds of excuses to lock up, fail components and have other components become "unpredictable". Self cleaning takes the oven to extremely high temperatures to incinerate the baking residue. This also uses a high amount of energy. My best advice is to clean the oven with the spray cleaner whenever possible, and to avoid the self cleaning feature altogether. Use normal precautions with the spray, following the directions on the can. This will do the job just as well, and takes much less time. Just make sure that the product that you use says "safe for self cleaning ovens", and you'll be fine.
Best regards, --W/D--

The oven was cleaned with oven cleaner instead of using the Self-Cleaning operation. Is it safe and should we be worried about any problems.


It is safe to use. Make sure you let it run for about 20-30 minutes at 350 before putting any food in it, this will burn off the residue. Also before starting it make sure you didn't get any cleaner on the heating elements if so wait for it to evaporate before using.

Oven locks after self cleaning After self cleaning the panel indicates locked


I believe they can stay "Locked" for up to 3/4 Hours. See they heat up to like 900 Degrees, to "Clean" the oven... It stays locked until the oven "Thinks" it is "Safe" to be opened.

Is it safe to use the self cleaning if someone has used oven cleaners? is it safe to use self cleaning with a small crack in door glass?


No and no...
I would use the self cleaning anyway it gets everything too hot and cuases things to go wrong faster, like burning up the coatings on your wires and such...it is a bad idea but it sells ranges...so go figure.
Definetly noy if your glass has a crack... unless you want to replace it right now...

How does self cleaning work on my frigidaire gas burner stove?


Self cleaning would be better named... Running the oven real hot to burn off residue.. so in essence, the oven is locked out and then heat is raised to a high level to bake out grease and food byproducts so they either burn off or turn to ash for easier cleaning.. Does that make sense to you? Most self cleaning ovens lock out the user until the oven has cooled down to a safe user-friendly level..
