Question about Frigidaire 30" Self-Cleaning Freestanding Electric Range - White-on-White

1 Answer

First time user

First time owner of a self-cleaning oven. Do you have to use any type of cleaner, (easy off) or do you just turn it on and let it burn. We do have some spillage on the bottom of the oven and it fills the house with smoke.

Not only do you not have to use Easy Off, if you do, it will ruin the oven liner. Wipe excess grease as much as possible from the oven cavity, maybe even use a plastic spatula to scrape up excess then turn it on and let it go through the self cean cycle for 3-4 hours. S/C ovens work by getting up around 900 degrees and burning food soils from the oven liner and inside door surface. Open windows and go shopping for 4 or 5 hours.. Seriously, that's about all you can do. Well, maybe a movie if your not in the mood to shop. Tell your neighbors not to call the fire department when they see smoke coming from the windows. Not meaning to sound sarcastic but having been a technician for 30 years I have seen this more times than I can count

Get some easy off oven cleaner and go by directions. Using the self clean function damages expensive oven controls. My opinion. Electrolux stove service manual

What type of oven cleaner can be used on the ge profile self cleaning ovens.


No chemical cleaners should be used on self cleaning ovens. Scrape the heavy soil with a plastic spatula and use the self clean feature. Once chemicals are used it will not clean satisfactorily again. Sorry..... Eric

How to self clean oven


If it has a self clean feature, you can set that feature to self clean. If it does not, you can use Easy Off oven cleaner. You should turn the breaker off to the oven first. Lay newspaper on the floor around the oven to catch drips and spray the entire oven. Let it sit for a few hours and use your vent hood to elimnate fumes, then wipe out with an old cloth. Hope this helps and answers your question. Ella

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.

Self cleaning


Never use spray cleaners in a self clean oven it will void your warranty and possibly ruin the oven. it sounds like what may have happened is the fumes from the spray ignited inside the oven and may have blown out the pilot light if your using gas.
or maybe replace the thermocouple. sorry, hope that helps.
