No manual. Hit the clean button and 15 minutes it caught on fire. Hit the cancel


It probably caught fire because to much crud was built up inside probably from not cleaning often enough. I assume there were not flames but just a lot of smoke, try again but watch it carefully. Some ovens are damaged by oven cleaner so I would get a manual first to be sure using that would be OM.

How can we clean the baked on food from the oven racks and rack holders? Stainless steel cleaner does not touch it.


To clean the stainless steel without marking it you can first try non-caustic oven cleaner, if you use normal oven cleaner the acid in the cleaner will etch "eat" the surface of the stainless steel

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)

    Keep getting a message that says 'remove probe' but we don't have a probe in. Hit 'cancel' and tried reducing the temp on the oven when this message came up ('remove probe'). I hit 'bake' and tried to...


    You might want to try and use a q-tip and some rubbing alchohol and try to clean the inside of the probe connector in the oven. Some liquids or something might be in it causing the control board to think the probe is connected. Make sure to do this procedure with the range unplugged. Then wait about 20 minutes before plugging the range back in. Hopefully that will stop the issue. If not could be a control board problem.

    Foil baked onto oven base.


    Unfortunately, it's too late. The tin foil has melted into the panel and can't be removed. You should never place anything on the bottom of a stove that has a hidden element. You will damage the panel. Oven operation is not affected. The only option you have is to replace the panel or the entire oven liner...
